Synopsis :

Focusing on five clubs - Aston Villa, Birmingham City, West Bromwich Albion, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Walsall - this is the story of League and cup football in the West Midlandss: the great players, passionately fought local derbies, and the successes and failures that have inspired countless fans over the years.

This part of England has seen no small amount of footballing success, with League Championships, FA Cups, League Cups and European honours being won by West Midlands clubs. In harder times fans have had to endure periods of underachievement and disappointments including relegation and cup final defeats. The highs and lows are recounted here by local football writer Tony Matthews in a fine illustrated history that is sure to delight all fans who have followed the game in these parts.


Our verdict :

This book is about the 5 big clubs in the West Midlands. We can't rate it as a derby book though as it doesn't focuss on the matches between these clubs.

The book is a walk through history of West Midland football and tells you about the ups and down, the topscorers etc.

It has nine main chapters (chronological order) each describing a decade in the history of the West Midland clubs.

Each chapters comes with a lot of pictures, it's like walking in a museum.

Very nice book for those who are interested in the history of football in the West Midlands.
