The excellent From Tashkent With Love: Cardiff City and the Cup Winners’ Cup 1964-93 by Mario Risoli was launched at Cardiff City Stadium on Monday.
More than a dozen players from those great European adventures were present, along with journalists who reported on Cardiff City for the South Wales Echo. They told some fantastic stories of those European games, particularly of the clash in Tashkent with Torpedo Moscow.
The publication coincides with the 50th anniversary of City’s first Cup Winners’ Cup campaign.
We have around 30 books available for purchase from the Trust office. Trust members will have a £1.95 reduction on the normal price of £16.99.
The book will be on sale from the Trust office (near Gate 5) from 1pm-2.45pm on Saturday.
It would make a great Christmas present for members or relatives or friends who are Bluebirds fans.
Reminder We’ve also got a few remaining copies in the office of Paul Evans and Richard Holt’s excellent book, The Journey Back: Cardiff City’s Rise Through the Divisions 1991 to 2013. The Journey Back costs £19.50, but Trust members can get it at the discounted price of £17.50.
