The Stolen Dream By John Devaney
Hardcover: $36.82
Prints in 3-5 business days
The book examines a period when football underwent a seismic and ineradicable change brought about by the determination of the Victorian Football League to wrest control of the game’s... More > development and destiny from the various state controlling bodies and the Australian Football Council. Whereas the VFL had initially been the first among equals, it gradually assumed the role of the sole and undisputed guardian of the code. The AFC, once football’s ostensible national controlling body, became an irrelevance. Instead of a national sport with a national remit we ended up with an expanded VFL with a majority of Victorian member clubs supplemented by a token sprinkling of teams from interstate. Such teams were in most cases created from scratch and could in no way be said to derive directly from the states’ unique and distinctive football traditions and culture. For some, it was a brave new world, but evolution does not inevitably entail improvement.< Less

Goodbye Leederville Oval: History of West Perth Cheer Squad 1984-86 By Kieran James
Paperback: $15.28
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is the memoir of Kieran James, and details his experiences as co-founder of West Perth Football Club’s unofficial cheer squad from 1984 to 1986 (Western Australian Football League /... More > WAFL). Using Marsh’s theory of the “illusion of violence”, the author links the cheer squad to the academic literature on British soccer hooligans, Italian ultras, and other soccer supporter groups from around the world. The book details “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds. The findings conform to Armstrong and Hughson’s idea of fluid “post-modern” “neo-tribes” where affiliations are very loose and people can easily adjust their degree of commitment to a group and / or leave the group when their personal priorities change. The book also allows the reader to relive great WAFL matches and meet again key players from the era.< Less

This (large-print edition) book is the memoir of Kieran James, and details his experiences as co-founder of West Perth Football Club’s unofficial cheer squad from 1984 to 1986. The book details... More > “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds.

Moves to bring the game closer to the people in 1984, such as holding the best-and-fairest award count night at Perth Entertainment Centre, should be seen in this light. This book will allow supporters to relive great teams, great players, and great matches from a wonderful era in WA football 1984-86 before West Coast Eagles joined the expanded VFL.< Less
