20 Legends: Sheffield Wednesday brings together the stories of 16 players, three managers - and one stand - to tell the story of Sheffield Wednesday, one of the great English football clubs. Focussing on the post-war period, the book charts the ups and downs of a club whose position over the decades has fluctuated from the top tier of league football down to the bottom of the third. Each of the 20 portraits tells the story of the individual and their experiences before, during and after their time at the club. And collectively, how the club has evolved through the years - from management and on-field tactics to big transfer fees, stadium development, and finally damaging debt. In 20 Legends: Sheffield Wednesday, authors Tom Whitworth and Chris Olewicz have conducted extensive research, analysis and interviews with many of the great stars, including David Hirst, Howard Wilkinson, Lee Bullen, Don Megson and Roland Nilsson. They evocatively describe the inner feelings of the players at key moments in their careers - the cup finals, relegations and promotions - and have captured the unique atmosphere of Hillsborough both on and off the pitch.
