Did you know? Former City stalwart Denis Smith had the misfortune of having five broken legs, four broken noses, a cracked ankle, broken collar bone, chipped spine, most of his fingers and toes broken as well as having over 100 stitches at various times in Stoke colours - that's got to be a record!
On 3 February 1945 Stoke City's Frank Wong Soo was the first player of Chinese extraction to play for England.
Stoke have 2 club mascots called Pottermus and Pottermiss. The Stoke City Miscellany - a book on the club like no other, packed with facts, stats, trivia, stories and legend.
Now, with the club tasting previously uncharted highs, look back at what has made this club what it is today - the players and characters that have represented City over the years and the events that have shaped the club. If you want to know the record crowd for a home game, the record appearance holder or longest-serving manager, look no further - this is the book you've been waiting for.
From record goal scorers, to record defeats; from The Victoria Ground to Alan Ball, from Mark Chamberlain to Gordon Banks - it's all in The Stoke City Miscellany - can you afford not to own a copy?
