There is no rhyme or reason behind the final choice of games from Blues' history - a few selected themselves Cup Final appearances; trips into Europe, promotions but the vast majority are there just because they will mean something to Blues' supporters.

Over 130 years of professional football in the heart of industrial Midlands has produced only one major trophy - The League Cup in 1963 - alongside a million heartaches and disappointments for its fans.

Therefore it was never going to be an easy task as a lifelong supporter of a football club to select fifty memorable games from its history, but the choice was made and here it is.

Included in the book are personal interviews with ex-Blues players such as: Howard Kendall, Ken Leek, Jimmy Harris, Ian Clarkson, Paul Tait, Paul Devlin et al. It includes scans and content from 1931 FA Programme and 1906 Opening of St. Andrew's brochure
