THE Bradford City Ointment needs no introduction to anyone who takes an interest in football violence. For decades the hooligan gang has brought serious trouble to its rivals. From Stockport County to Tottenham Hotspur, and the dozens in-between, those who have come across the Ointment never forget. Bradford had easily the best northern firm in the lower leagues throughout the 70 s and early 80 s and could have made any top ten list in the country. With potential of pulling numbers of 300, it was often cup games against top division opponents where the Ointment found its true level. But the Bradford hooligans dealt with what was put in front of them and the lower leagues could be fun. This book details the history of the Ointment from the late 70 s to the present day. It s not for the faint-hearted as you are taken through a journey of extreme violence and shocking acts of brutality. These include life-threatening stabbings, drug abuse, robbery, gangland activity, long prison sentences and tragic death. The book reveals how the Ointment emerged from a razor blade wielding gang known as the Town Boys in the 1970 s to become one of the country s most notorious hooligan firms. Well over 50 football clubs are mentioned in this book. Any firm who has come across the Ointment over the last 40 years will know the plot. Now here is the inside story.
