One of four new titles in VSP's best-selling football Pocket Books range, The Pocket Book of Aston Villa is the essential book for all fans of one of England’s most famous clubs.

Learn about Villa’s glorious history, from the very first team back in 1874, to the 1957 record-breaking FA Cup winners, to the European Cup heroes of 1982. Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 5-1 thrashing of mighty Liverpool in 1976 or the 6-4 thriller with Blackburn earlier this year. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it Aitken and Athersmith, McGrath and Mortimer, or current heroes Young and Carew.

Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Aston Villa memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget Dalian Atkinson’s goal of the season against Wimbledon in 1992?), legendary managers and tactics of the club’s most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years – yes, that includes the infamous 1987 ‘blancmange’ design.On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of Villa Park, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite Gary Shaw.
