About the Author
Steve Mifflin was born in Cheshire, England in 1971. He attended his first Stoke City game in 1979 at The Victoria Ground where Stoke beat local rivals Derby County. From the age of seven he has been hooked and has regularly attended home and away games with his father and younger brother. For Steve every home game is an away game as he now lives in Reading. Although the family roots run deep through Stoke-on-Trent, Steve has always had exile status from the city. The lack of a Potteries accent singles him out at The Britannia Stadium and when on the road with Stoke City. Steve is married to Kate, a long-suffering football widow. He has two daughters Ellie and Daisy. Ellie has recently declared her allegiance to local team Reading.
