Nicky Allt was a skint teenager from the tough Kirkby district of Merseyside who wanted something than dole, dope and despair. In the late 1970s, he joined a scallywag crew of Liverpool FC fans who dressed different, spoke different and met not on the famous Kop but on the Anfield Road End. Soon they were on the road together and their antics became legend as the Reds conquered Europe.
The Road Enders united infamous mobs like the Breck Road Firm and the Huyton Baddies with a motley assortment of jibbers and blaggers to whom every "no entry" sign was a challenge and every price tag a joke. They criss-crossed the Continent with Adidas bags and a few quid between them, fighting, joking, thieving and bunking in to every match, and had the times of their lives.
The Boys From The Mersey is the authentic voice of the sharpest, roughest and funniest bunch of football lads around and the inside account of how they changed the face of terrace culture.
