Only a handful of English clubs have reached the milestone of 100 games of European action—Newcastle United is one of them. The Magpie's European successes have taken them to cities of diverse cultures and allowed them to play at some of Europe's finest arenas. Along the way, the competition has been fierce, and many of the world's greatest players have taken the field alongside United, including Totti, Del Piero, Rivaldo, and Figo. The Grand Tour captures the excitement of Newcastle United's European adventures and features profiles of the club's first 100 matches. It covers every dramatic development, from the story of United's trophy-winning debut back in 1968-69 and that remarkable triumph in Budapest to Kevin Keegan's Entertainers' adventure. It also details the club's bids to land the UEFA Cup under Sir Bobby Robson and Graeme Souness. Lavishly illustrated, this stunning book is a must for every Newcastle United supporter.
