This title is part of the best-selling "Legends" series, including Aston Villa, Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Each player's profile includes in depth coverage of his career with West Bromwich Albion. It deftly illustrated by quotes and comments from players and managers. Since the club's formation in 1878, West Bromwich Albion Football Club has been served by approximately a thousand players and choosing one-hundred of the best from them was not an easy task. However, with the help and knowledge of several avid Baggies' supporters, a handful of past and present players, two former managers, three ex-coaches/trainers, two secretaries, two directors and relatives of former players, Matthews has managed to hunt out the players that have performed the best in their own particular way and in their respective eras. Older supporters who watched Albion in action in the 1930s are well catered for; so too are those who cheered for the Baggies in the 1940s and 50s, while the regulars who attended the Hawthorns in the 1960s and 70s will certainly enjoy reading about their favourites. Not to be forgotten are a handful of players who have given Albion such wonderful service in recent years, so the younger generation of supporters aren't left out. The book also boasts a selection of previously unpublished photographs, which makes it a must for all ardent supporters of West Bromwich Albion, old or young.
