Synopsis

Aston Villa, founded in 1874 and one of the great clubs in world soccer, were giants in the game long before the introduction of League football in 1888. Throughout their history, the name of Aston Villa has never been far away from the honours and over the years, some brilliant players have worn the famous claret and blue strip, many helping them win the Football League title, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the coveted European Cup and the European Super Cup as well as a handful of other competitions.

There have been a few lean years, especially when the team slipped through two sections of League football into the Third Division. But the players responded superbly and quickly bounced back to the top. Now, the team is playing with the elite in the Premiership where they have been since its introduction in 1992 and one feels there are a few more prizes ready to be won in the very near future.

Around 1,000 players have represented the club at various levels since 1874, but only about one-tenth have been given credibility in this book - chosen after great deliberation. And their life stories, along with other club personnel, are covered in detail in this book, which is illustrated with some high quality photographs. "The Legends of Aston Villa" will delight all true supporters of the club (and many followers of the game in general). It will, for sure, be an important addition to the bookshelves of anyone with an interest in this proud club and is sure to appeal to Villa supporters of all ages.
