The Port Vale Miscellany - a book on the Valiants like no other, packed with facts, stats, trivia, stories and legends. Port Vale Football Club - the name gives no clue to its whereabouts, but this book tells all of the highs, lows and downright strange happenings at a club that has been in existence in the Potteries for over 130 years. From an FA Cup semi-final to expulsion from the league, from three Wembley appearances to a ten-goal home defeat when the goalkeeper lost his glasses in the mud, it's all here. Classic giant-killings, the man who played for both teams in the same game, going into administration, famous fans such as Robbie Williams and Phil Taylor, they all have a story to tell. The record wins, defeats, attendances and plenty of facts about the club are listed in great detail, plus the answer to many questions such as what links David Beckham and Bobby Charlton to Port Vale? Also featured are a wide range of statistics, quotes and biographies from the club's history, making it a must for any fan. Can you really afford not to own a copy?
