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.
