Football and Gangsters by Graham Johnson

Book Description

Who controls football in Britain today? The FA? The clubs? The fans? The shocking reality is that organised crime is moving in more aggressively than a Wayne Rooney tackle and there's little the authorities can do about it. "Football and Gangsters" is a revealing investigation into how organised crime has begun to take hold behind the scenes of professional football. Michael Owen, Rio Ferdinand and Robbie Fowler are just some of the sport's big names to have fallen foul of the game's godfathers and paid the price. Their alarming stories are told here. Criminal organisations have manoeuvred themselves into a position of power in football. Drug dealers launder money by buying clubs; hooligan gangs have muscled their way into the boardroom; and the influence of Asian betting rings continues to grow. Through a series of dangerous undercover investigations, along with interviews with players, club officials, police and the underworld figures responsible, the sensational evidence is laid bare in this book.

Books By Author Graham Johnson

Young Blood by Graham Johnson Young Blood, Paperback (May 2014)

The Cartel is Britain's biggest drugs gang, a global corporation employing thousands of criminals and flooding Britain with cocaine and heroin. This book reveals how the brutal assassination of drug baron Colin 'King Cocaine' Smith in 2007 by a group of young bucks triggered the rise of the foot soldier.

Cartel by Graham Johnson Cartel, Paperback (June 2013)

The Cartel is Britain's biggest drugs organisation, a shadowy network stretching from the freezing, fog-banks of the Mersey to the glittering marinas of Marbella, from the coffee shops of Amsterdam to the trading floors of Canary Wharf. This title tells about this organisation.

Hack by Graham Johnson Hack, Paperback (March 2013)

From phone taps, to kiss-and-tells, to eventual redemption: the story of a journalist drawn into the depths of the world of tabloid sleaze

Images You Should Not Masturbate to by Graham Johnson Images You Should Not Masturbate to, Paperback (April 2011)

Choking the chicken, spanking the monkey, airing the orchid - whatever you call it, none of the images in this book will encourage the gentle art of self-pleasure. This deceptively simple and strangely addictive book presents a laugh-out-loud collection of random pictures virtually guaranteed to dampen the urge of even the strongest libido.
