A ‘must-buy’ for all Bluebird fans, this informative and entertaining illustrated history tells the amazing story of despair and triumph that was the ‘roller-coaster’ 18-year period from 1993 to 2009.
Cardiff City supporters can, through over 370 photos, relive the memorable FA Cup victories, with Nathan Blake’s wonder goal against Man City in 1994 and Scott Young’s toe-poke against Leeds in 2002, yet also look back at the dark days of an almost empty Ninian Park in the old 4th Division.
Richard Shepherd’s photo-packed 192-page book recalls the heartbreaking play-off defeats; the elation of promotions back through the divisions; the coming and going of several colourful owners and managers; and the move to the Cardiff City Stadium.
All City fans will have their own special moment but whether a shake of the head in disbelief or a broad grin of happiness, this book will jog the memories of that remarkable ride!
Richard Shepherd is a former BBC Radio Wales and Independent Radio football commentator who edited the Cardiff City’s match-programme from 1985 to 2005, and a renowned football historian and archivist.
