About this item

Dean Walton had no choice in his football supporting allegiance; he was born in 1960 to ‘Baggies’ mad parents. His grandparents were also staunch West Bromwich Albion fans, as were all of his aunties, uncles and cousins.

Over the last fifty years Dean has rarely missed a game at The Hawthorns and has followed his beloved Albion all over the world, watching them play in eighteen different countries. All of these trips are covered including some adventures that didn’t quite go according to plan such as getting snowbound in Munich and banned from camp sites in Zurich.

Follow Dean’s travels through three divisions over five decades: From UEFA Cup joy on a warm Valencia evening to questioning his own sanity on a cold Tuesday night in Hartlepool. From Wembley joy to humiliating relegation in Bath, every emotion is covered.

Football is about much more than the match itself, it’s the whole occasion. Dean’s experiences will strike a chord with any dedicated supporter.
