This lovingly compiled book is a photographic celebration of Hampshire’s greatest club, drawing on the thousands of outstanding pictures contained within the Daily Mirror’s huge archive. All the club’s legendary figures, from Wayman to Bates, Paine, McMenemy, Ball, Channon, Keegan, Shearer and Le Tissier are of course featured, but this is much more than a visual record of famous names and great games. It provides a unique, behind-the-scenes insight into the day-to-day atmosphere of a great club down the years. The nooks and crannies of the old intimate Dell and, more recently, their impressive St Mary’s home, the players, the fans and the off-beat quirks and curiosities that help make Saints such a special club. Wonderfully nostalgic and hugely evocative, a must for all Southampton fans.
