Forty. Receding pate. Loose teeth. Failing marriage. Delinquent, uncaring son. Psycho boss parachuted in to cut the big earners.
A few lost marbles…
It wasn’t always like this. He used to be a Face. A Player. A Terrace Celebrity. Now he’s just another faceless nobody on the brink of despair in a world he no longer recognises.
Yet, one freezing winter’s day, a chance meeting with a face from the old days at Notts County changes everything.
Especially when there’s an intriguing proposition on the table. One he may find difficult to refuse.
The Bully Brothers.
Forty-something football hooligans determined to go straight.
A young Internet writer charts their progress to becoming good citizens amidst the absolute economic chaos that is the UK. Food shortages. Zero hour contracts. Dangerous packs of homeless roaming the streets. Cancer victims forced to work for dole. Panicked offspring poisoning elderly parents to avoid spiralling care costs.
Twenty quid for the flicks, three fifty a pint, and eight quid a packet of fags.
You don’t know whether to wear a parka to go shopping or slap on sun block.
The writer takes their confession. Old war stories. Terrace myths and fables. Sins of Ultra Violence two decades old carried out on train stations, motorway services, and the High Streets of towns like Hounslow, Rotherham and Peterborough.
Will they succeed in going straight? Can they resist the carnage planned for the last match of the season against Coventry?
Or will they drag the young writer down with them
