Did you know local rivals Oxford United recorded just one League win at the County Ground in 24 attempts? That Town's top marksman Harry Morris cost just GBP110 from Swansea in 1926, and scored 48 times in his first season? Or that Alex Ferguson was Swindon's oldest debutant? All these stories and hundreds more appear in a brilliantly researched collection of trivia - essential for any United fan who holds the riches of the club's history close to their heart.
