Where United went, the Inter City Jibbers followed—and mayhem was never far behind
The Inter City Jibbers (ICJ) were the most notorious Manchester United hooligan crew of the last 30 years, and Colin "B****r" Blaney was up to his neck in the thick of it. His years as an ICJ and Wide Awake Firm (WAF) foot soldier saw him blacklisted as an "Undesirable" by Interpol for smuggling cocaine, tearing through gangland warfare with rival crooks, and carrying out daring jewelry thefts as far afield as Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea. This shocking, searingly honest new work from the inner core of the Inter City Jibbers tells of four attempted jailbreaks, describes members of the ICJ's experiences in numerous hellish overseas jails—including the gang rape of one WAF member in a Pakistani prison—from a brutal Washington, D.C. county lock-up, to a Yakuza-filled Japanese jail, as well as run-ins with gun-wielding foreign thugs. Above all, this is a chronicle of 25 years of life as an Undesirable, stealing anything that wasn't nailed down.
