SYNOPSIS

Formed in 1878 and founder members of the Football League a decade later, West Bromwich Albion is one of the great names of English soccer and next season the club will celebrate its 125th birthday.

Since those early Victorian days many excellent players have served the Baggies - stars like Ronnie Allen, Jeff Astle, Ray Barlow, Billy Bassett, Tony Brown, Laurie Cunningham, Willie Johnston, Jesse Pennington, Cyrille Regis, Bryan Robson, Derek Statham, Bob Taylor, John Wile and Graham Williams, to mention but a few, along with several fine managers.

Also there have been many great matches, plenty of highlights, including First and Second Division League championship triumphs, promotion campaigns, five FA Cup Final victories, League Cup success, European competition and visits to China and Russia.

All those glories - and indeed, the disappointments - are covered in depth in this unique book which also includes sections on appearances, attendances, age, goals & goalscorers, internationals, transfers, managers, wartime football, Albion's grounds, with emphasis on The Hawthorns, and much, much more. It's an 'Encyclopaedia' every Albion supporter, young and old, male or female, will want on his or her bookshelf.
