Product description


The Who's Who of Aston Villa is a comprehensive guide that promises to settle any disputes amongst supporters of the club once and for all. Packed with facts and stats, it contains profiles of every Villa player to have appeared in a competitive match for the team since 1879, the year the club first entered the FA Cup. Since then, some truly great players have been associated with the club.

These include: record appearance-maker Charlie Aitken; Colombian striker Juan Pablo Angel; 1890s stars Charlie Athersmith and Jas Cowan; scheming midfielder Gordon Cowans; tough guy defender George Cummings; 1957 FA Cup-winning captain Johnny Dixon; longstanding centre-half Allan Evans; Welsh international goalscorer Trevor Ford; 1890s goalkeeper Billy George; goalscorer supreme Harry Hampton; long-serving player, manager and director Eric Houghton; Irish double act Peter McParland and Con Martin; skipper Dennis Mortimer, who led the side to League championship and European Cup glory in the early 1980s; post-war goalkeeper Joe Rutherford; '80s stars Gary Shaw and Nigel Spink; influential '30s half-backs Alec Talbot and Joe Tate; Billy Walker and Pongo Waring, two of the club's greatest-ever goalscorers; and European Cup final hero Peter Withe. As well as providing full details on these legends and many others, this indispensable guide also profiles the men who have managed Villa down the years, including current gaffer David O'Leary, Joe Mercer, Graham Taylor, Graham Turner, Ron Saunders and Alex Massie.

Featuring rare photos of Villa heroes past and present, the Who's Who of Aston Villa is essential reading for any supporter who wants to know everything there is to know about this Premiership club.
