The Last Boss of Brighton: Boris "Biba" Nayfeld and the Rise of the Russian Mob in America
About this deal
He creates 20 or 25 chances per game, better by far than most opponents. He monopolises the ball in a way it hasn't been for a long time. But without talisman Kane, Tottenham looked bereft of ideas, rarely threatening their 17th-placed opponents. Allardyce and Mourinho have got something in common, they are both dinosaurs of the game and past their sale by date. Looks like Jose is going to have another BIG payday very soon. Even “parking the bus” is not working anymore…..comedy gold
The Last Boss of Brighton, review: a brilliant, blood-soaked
Tottenham have won just three of their past 13 Premier League games in which Harry Kane has not featured (D4, L6), including none of their past four (D1, L3). But following a poor 2-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa on Saturday, Potter’s 11th in 31 games, the club are 11th in the Premier League with European qualification of any description looking more and more unlikely.
It's not about the players. I told them there is no replacement for Harry Kane," added the Spurs boss. And the hosts comfortably held on at the Amex Stadium to earn their first home league win since June.

CrimeReads needs your help. The mystery world is vast, and we need your support to cover it the way Settling in Brighton Beach – the bizarre aesthetic of which is outlined by Century with characteristic neatness as “a fever dream of Western opulence filtered through a Slavic sensibility” – Nayfeld became a fixer and heavy for various mob bosses. After a protracted war with chief rival Monya Elson – although Century describes it as “less of an outright war and more a series of double- and triple-crosses [and] spectacularly botched assassination attempts – as well as a few gruesomely successful ones” – he rose to be Brighton’s unchallenged crime king. Brighton's Pascal Gross has assisted 18 Premier League goals; the only Germans with more assists in the competition's history are Mesut Ozil (54), Leroy Sane (28) and Dietmar Hamann (22).It’s hard to reconcile many of these internal contradictions; but this duality is, I believe, what makes Boris Nayfeld a uniquely fascinating character. I had the feeling when he arrived the impact he would have in the Premier League would be great - I didn't expect him to do it in this short space of time. Few of his contemporaries from the Soviet émigré underworld in Brighton Beach made it to his advanced age. Many, though not all, died public and violent deaths. Boris is virtually the last mobster of his generation standing.

Citizens of the USSR, they were subject to the incomprehensible collective sacrifice of the Great Patriotic War against Hitler. Boris’s grandparents survived the Nazi invasion only by escaping into the interior of the Soviet Union—settling in Kazakhstan. After the war, returning to Gomel, they lived through the decades of official antisemitism under the repressive Stalinist state. His life story offers us a window into a singular moment in modern history—when a wave of Jews fleeing Soviet oppression in the 1970s arrived in the United States and, following in the footsteps of a previous generation of young hoodlums like Meyer Lansky, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, and Louis “Lepke” Buchalter, applied both brains and brawn to making their fortunes as outlaws in America.
