More About This Title Stoke's Greatest Games


Packed with facts and figures as well as interviews with many of the heroes who starred in the games, this book will provide glorious memories for every Potters fan and entertain and amuse in equal measure Throughout its 150 years of history Stoke City has often been the home of the strange and bizarre as much as the sublime and glorious. This selection of the club's 50 greatest games revisits magnificent victories at Wembley, promotion celebrations, and famous triumphs over the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Leeds United, Arsenal, and Chelsea, as voted for by fans in an official poll. Also featured are fantastic feats of individual goalscoring, great comebacks, last ditch survival efforts, and the occasional crushing disappointment. Also in the mix are the strange tales of the game with no shots, a broken down train, the goalscoring backside, and the man who saved Stoke from relegation a couple of hours after getting married. Incredible victories over Bury, Stockport, Cardiff, Reading, and Luton also provide a wealth of fantastic and fantastical stories.
