An Arsenal fan is forced to ditch his first love and switch allegiances to a new team in Belgrade following a Foreign Office posting. James Moor gives up his season ticket and joins Partizan's Grobari (Undertakers) supporters, lifting the lid on a Serbian fan culture of violence, xenophobia and conspiracy theories during one tumultuous season.
Grobar is James Moor’s first book. Born in Crawley, West Sussex, and brought up an Arsenal fan, he now lives in Belgrade where he works in the British Embassy. His arrival in Serbia in 2011 followed posts to DR Congo and Helmand Province. James lives with his girlfriend, Jenny, and can be found in the east stand at Partizan every other weekend.
