I saw this on EBay last week going for pennies and having searched for more I couldn't find any, so maybe it's scarce and not much sought after.

Anyway, it has Villa Park on the front and a game against what could be their local rivals the Blues, and a photo of the 60's Villa groundsman Bert Bond, plus a small article about him inside, so I thought why not?




Having said all that, 99% of the content is advertising for seed drills and lawn mowers but if that was Selhurst Park I'd love it in my collection. And sure enough my Villa regular loves it too so it's winging its way to Brum as I write.

But I have a question - the is Volume 21, Number 6 - that's a lot of issues - does anyone know what other club grounds may have been featured on the front cover? As I said, I'd love one of Selhurst Park.

Cheers!

The most beautiful stand ever built at an English football ground.

How on earth did Villa get away with demolishing it ?
