Match Day (Pocket Edition)
Match Day, Bob Stanley's 2006 collection of UK football programmes, has just been published as a pocket edition, making it even easier to flick through the printed glories of yesteryear while on the terraces. The book is, again, designed by FUEL and features 450 examples from the post-war period to the start of the Premiership in 1992. It's a lovely antidote to the glossy corporate brochures served up at football matches today.
Compiled by Stanley and Paul Kelly, Match Day features every English league member from 1945 to the dawn of the Premiership, with a selection of non-league clubs, and other programmes from significant matches like the 1966 World Cup Final.

I love them, i have a collection of programmes from every football club in the league before the premiership was formed, collected religiously by my grandad and my dad, plus a stack of Arsenal memorabilia.
There are some real gems, this book looks like great, they really don't make them like they used to!
The design of the Coventry City cover is fantastic.
Proportionally the designs of the past are just decades ahead of the same old drop shadow style of today.
These are great, jumpers for goal posts, marvelous!
I designed and illustrated the Albion News programme for 1975 with the Desdemona font header and the four small drawings, including Jeff Astle on the front cover. All the headers inside were hand-drawn variations on the typo theme - great fun! especially as I was then and still am,a Baggies fan.I also designed and illustrated a programme cover for Walsall around the same time.Nice to see my work again after so long.
