Aston Villa Greatest Games

By (author) James Fisher

From the thousands of matches ever played by Aston Villa, stretching from the club’s Victorian foundation across more than 140 years to the Premier League era, here are 50 of the club’s most glorious, epochal and thrilling games of all! Expertly presented in evocative historical context, and described incident-by-incident in atmospheric detail, Aston Villa Greatest Games offers a terrace ticket back in time, taking in their 19th-century dominance of club football, the ignominy of relegation to the Third Division, and then lifting Europe’s biggest trophy just a decade later. An irresistible cast list of club legends – Pongo Waring and Peter Withe; Charlie Aitken, Paul McGrath and Peter McParland – springs to life in these thrilling tales of goalscoring feats, great comebacks, Wembley glory and the odd glorious yet crushing disappointment. In all, a journey through the highlights of Villa history which is guaranteed to make any fan’s heart swell with pride.
