about this item

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.
