Overview

From the thousands of matches ever played by Cardiff City, stretching from the club's Victorian foundation to their grand Premier League entrance, here are 50 of the Bluebirds' most glorious, epochal and thrilling games of all! Expertly presented in evocative historical context, and described incident-by-incident in atmospheric detail, Cardiff City Greatest Games offers a terrace ticket back in time, taking in everything from the famous FA Cup triumph of 1927 through great European nights of the 60s and 70s to the two Cup finals reached since the millennium. An irresistible cast list of club legends - John Charles, Robert Earnshaw and Brian Clark, Derek Tapscott, Phil Dwyer and Peter Whittingham - springs to life at wonderful moments such as promotion day against Leeds in 1952, 1999's heroic 0-0 draw with eight men at Cambridge United, and the third-tier playoff win in extra-time against QPR which continued the Bluebirds' resurgence in 2003. In all, a journey through the highlights of City's history which is guaranteed to make any fan's heart swell with pride.
