Villa related books
« on: December 05, 2022, 11:52:57 PM »
Just looking for a few Villa related books or books written about/by ex Villa employees

Last couple of years have bought euros and Villans, Ron Saunders odd man out, Ticket to the moon, Brian Littles’s My Aston Villa and of course AV the complete record.

Just considering Back from the brink, Paul McGrath and The manager, Ron Atkinson

Any other recommendations please ?

You mean you haven't read the Paul McGrath one?! Daz, you're slipping. Thought you were the king of the football memoirs!

I've got over 100 Villa related books on my shelf I would highly recommend Back From The Brink and one you should definitely get is Children Of The Revolution by Richard Whitehead that's an excellent read.

I've put the signed Dennis Mortimer one on my birthday wish list. So my missus will get me that for January.

Is that all? I would have expected it to be more as I thought it was v hard to source nowadays.

Excellent book mind….up there with Dave W’s books (don’t want to get banned lol)

The one I ordered online came in the post signed (didn't know  that when I bought it).
