Andy has blended these with various quotes and articles from local media. For those of us of an age to remember these Rams games it is a walk down memory lane, with some emotive games including Play-off games, the infamous 1-7 drubbing by Liverpool at the Baseball Ground and those high profile pre-season games against the might of Sampdoria in 1997 and Barcelona the following year. For those not old enough or unlucky enough to have missed the games, it offers a great personal view from Mr Ellis. Each game is reviewed in detail, giving referee, attendance, as well as the programme of the day. At the end of the book we get Andy’s ‘Team of the Decade’ which lists reads like a who’s who of Rams favourites and names that will never be forgotten within English football.
