“I ordered this for my dad’s 70th, a lifelong Stoke fan. My grandad worked at Stoke City for many years, so this was ideal. I found myself reading it before giving it to him. It’s very interesting, is laid out well with lots of old pictures and a very good, detailed history. My dad was thrilled with it and I’m glad I chose this one out of the ones on offer. It’s also much cheaper on Amazon than ordering from Stoke City direct :-)”
