No city in England can match Gloucester’s passion for the game of rugby. The streets are festooned in cherry and white on match days and that famous cry of ‘Glaw . . . sterrr’ can be heard far beyond the club’s Kingsholm ground. This book illustrates what makes Gloucester Rugby Club so special. It features revealing and humorous interviews with some of the greats (including, to name but a few, Mike Teague, Andy Deacon and Ian Smith), historical facts, trivia, stats and stories, told by those who pulled on that famous shirt. It recalls the great matches, the cup wins, the highs, and also some of the lows. This is a book that shows what it means to play for Gloucester, a club steeped in tradition, pride and sporting excellence.

Packed with information and little-known facts about the club, the players, the managers and the fans, it cannot fail to please anyone whose obsession is all things claret and blue - and may even surprise a few who thought they knew it all! For many years, the terraces, the pubs and the living rooms of West Ham fans have buzzed with debate, speculation, opinions and laughter. Who was West Ham's best manager? who was their worst? Who should form the greatest-ever Upton Park XI? And who should be included in the worst? These kinds of questions and hundreds like them are answered within the pages of this informative, light-hearted book. From young to old, from die-hard, all-weather supporter to armchair fan, there is something in this collection for everyone. Author Brian Belton is one of the most prolific historians of West Ham United and has drawn on a lifetime of reserach to put this book together. With quotes from some of the greatest Hammers of all times (and their opponents!), Upton Park chants from through the years and much, much more, this unique book provides fans with a Hammers bible they wouldn't dare be without!
