Riaz Khan – Memoirs of an Asian Football Hooligan

For the second episode of Eat Sleep Grow Repeat I’m joined by author and former football hooligan Riaz Khan. The 1980’s are considered a dark time in English football due to the rise of hooliganism and Riaz witnessed the violence first hand as a member of one of the countries most notorious firms, the Leicester Baby Squad. During the podcast Riaz talks about the surprising importance of fashion in the gangs, how hooliganism broke down racial barriers and what it is that attracts people to travel the country in search of the sort of gang violence most people would be running from.
