A Greyhound bus ride through America and a subsequent stay in New Orleans compels Victor Stavski to reconsider everything he has stood for as a fanatical England supporter. With the Union Jack caped over his bull-neck shoulders and the Cross of St. George emblazoned down his back, Stavski and his mates tried initially to get the passengers riled up with some pre-match chanting for the upcoming England v. USA match. To his surprise, the Americans on board the bus and those he met in the cities along the way had no partisan interest in international soccer and, if anything, they began to chant for England. The Americans love England. But Victor Stavski discovers during this American odyssey that his real love is not for England after all, but for America and that it began with the music and TV images coming out of America that he experienced as a child.

"..."A Soccer Hooligan in America" is an exploration of a Brit's discovery of our egalitarian America, or perhaps a discourse of American values, or just perhaps, a British hooligan's reeducation of a not-so-merry England."
