ROLLING WITH THE 657 CREW - CASS PENANT & ROB SILVESTER

Portsmouth's 657 Crew: the most talked-about casual football firm of the eighties and nineties. Never out of the headlines, this notorious gang took their name from the time of the train they caught to away games, following their team fanatically around the country with the kind of dedication only a football fan knows. Here, the crew reveals its story. Author Cass Pennant gains access to the main face of the crew and tells all: the intense rivalry between Portsmouth and neighbours Southampton, the violence on and off the terraces and the comradeship between crew members.

CASS - CASS PENANT

Cass by Cass PenantHe's been run through with a sword; He's been shot at point blank range; He's got reputation and respect as one of the hardest bastards in Britain... Cass Pennant is a man who lets his fists do the talking. One of the hardest men in Britain, he lives his life on the edge of the law, giving respect where respect is due and dishing out terrible retribution upon anyone who dares to cross him. Cass's life story reads like a Hollywood gangster movie. He tells the amazing stories of how he once saved the life of World Boxing Champion Frank Bruno when skinheads were attacking him with knives; and how he was shot three times in the chest in a South London nightclub but still kept of fighting. As Cass says, 'I've been a bad lad and I've done some good in my life but I'm not ashamed of anything I've done or the choices I've made. I don't owe anyone anything. It ain't nobody's business but my own...'

WANT SOME AGRO? - CASS PENANT

WANT SOME AGRO? by Cass PenantIn the 1960s and 1970s, the Mile End Mob ruled Upton Park. Long before the days of the ICF, they were the guv'nors of the terraces, striking fear into the other West Ham mobs and fans. Indeed it was the reputation of the Mile End mob that drove the ICF to establish their rule over the terraces in the 1980s. Co-author Micky Smith was in the thick of the action in the 60s and 70s, when there was no mercy for an away fan at Upton Park. He was there at the clashes between the rival skinhead London mobs, the taking of terraces up and down the country and the run-ins with the authorities.
