Football hooligans/Ein Hool

One of Werner Siebers’ clients is a football fan:

Der Mandant ist Fußballfan; nicht Hardcore, nicht Ultra, kein Hool, aber mit Überzeugung.

On Google, there are about 1480 ghits for “ein hool site:de”. It seems to be an abbreviation of hooligan.

I don’t know how long this has been around. There is a 2009 song ‘Meine Mutti ist ein Hool‘, but whether that invented the term, I don’t know.
