Product Description

Review

At £14-99 for over 500 pages plus 32 pages of pics this is an excellent football history of a ground which - like it or loathe it - is a big part of the Scottish sporting psyche. Glen Isherwood has done a marvellous job - minor criticisms notwithstanding. (www.scottishleague.net)

Format: Paperback
In these days of pointless autobiographies by twenty-somethings and other football publications which fail to live up to their marketing hype, this is a book which makes a refreshing change - an offering which "does exactly what it says on the tin".

As you would expect, every game ever played at (the original) Wembley Stadium is catalogued and summarised. But what really makes this book stand up is the way that the match reports are enriched by countless statistical observations and interesting cross-references to other games - giving you much more than just the events of the day in question.

For example, Isherwood points out that when second-division Southampton beat Man Utd 1-0 in the 1976 FA Cup Final, the respective league positions of the two clubs were exactly the same as those of Sunderland and Leeds three years earlier; whose final had an identical outcome. Whether it was an omen or not, you don't get insight like that from "Motty".

And on top of that, the indexes at the back which list the aggregated statistics of all Wembley appearances - i.e. played, won, drawn, lost, goals scored etc. - by each club and even the appearances by each player, ensure that the book's claim to being "Wembley - The Complete Record" is by no means an overstatement. Come the next Cup Final day or England home game, dedicated fans, football trivia buffs, pub quiz aficionados and professional commentators alike will reach for it to look up noteworthy historical facts and comparisons with previous occasions.

Format: Paperback
Is there anything you ever wanted to know about football at Wembley? If so, this book will probably tell you the answer. Famous players who've played there, who's been sent-off there, all levels of games from full internationals and FA Cup finals to the Middlesex County Cup - this book has everything.

Not a bedside book - more a book that is capable of being dipped into and out of regularly - it should be considered the definitive work on Wembley stadium 1923-2000.
