Product description

At an Old Trafford game, Lennie hears Man United fans chanting rude rhymes about Hillsborough. Enraged, he sends a rude chant right back, about the Munich Disaster of 1958. But when his dad and grandpa overhear him, they aren’t happy at all. They know at first hand the human cost of fan violence, crowd disasters and racism. So they take Lennie on a whistlestop tour of the dark side of the beautiful game…
