The Who's Who of West Bromwich Albion is the latest addition to Breedon's popular series of Who's Who titles. This comprehensive book consists of detailed biographies of every player ever to take part in a first-team game for the Baggies since the club entered the FA Cup in November 1883. Author Tony Matthews has meticulously researched the history of West Brom to uncover such details as when a player joined the club and where from, how many appearances he made, which positions he played in, how many goals he scored and where he went to when he left the Hawthorns. International and FA Cup performances are also recorded. Other staff of the club are not forgotten, and within these pages are biographies of all the managers, chairmen, directors, secretaries, trainers and coaches that have worked behind the scenes to shape the history of this proud club. The book is illustrated throughout with a fine collection of pictures, many of them from the club's own archives. The result is a book that is a must-have for every Baggies fan that is sure to find its way onto the bookshelves of supporters young and old.
Tony Matthews is an experienced football historian and writer with many previous books to his credit. He specialises in the clubs of the West Midlands and is the author of The Who's Who of Stoke City, also published by Breedon Books in 2005.
