Rob Bishop is the guvnor when it comes to writing about Aston Villa. He was the Villa News & Record editor for ten years, as well as writing for the official site (not to be mistaken with current output!) and has written several comprehensive books on Villa. His latest is set to go to print and you can be part of it:
That incredible night in Rotterdam 36 years ago will never be erased from the memories of Villa supporters.
And you can be part of a special souvenir which will commemorate not only our 1982 European Cup triumph, but every one of the club’s games in UEFA competitions.
A new book is scheduled for publication in August – and if you act swiftly you can have your name included.
Euros & Villans is now available for pre-order, and anyone placing an order by Friday 20th July will be added to the Supporters’ Roll Call.
Written by former Villa News & Record editor Rob Bishop, the book will be a 208-page hardback limited edition of 1982 numbered copies. It will feature all 89 of the club’s games in the European Cup, Super Cup, UEFA Cup, Intertoto Cup and Europa League.
There will also be over 200 photos, mainly from the club’s Archives, plus statistics from every game.
The book costs £19.75 (to coincide with Villa’s first year in Europe) plus £2.25 towards UK postage and packaging, a total of £22. Overseas prices are £30 per book for Europe and £35 for the rest of the world.
