Carlton is the most successful club in the AFL both in premierships and financially. This book looks at the develpment of the club as an institution as well as the history of the fans. All the club's playing and boardroom chatracters appear, their greatest games, all-ins, goals and disgraces. Here is the tale of how the local team of the most enthusiastic football suburb in Victoria became a professional, financially secure club in a national competition, a club which has won more premierships in the first hundred years of VFL/AFL than any other.

4 of 5 Stars! '

A version of the story of the Carlton Football Club.

As far as football books go, this one is reasonably decent, so Carlton fans or other interested bodies shouldn't be disappointed with this book, even if not great.

We Are the Navy Blues, indeed, so one for the blueboys collection.
