Bob Davis, the famed Geelong player, coach and unashamed fan, describes the Geelong Football Club as his second home. It's a theme that resonates throughout We Are Geelong, from the club's birth in 1859 to its emergence as an AFL powerhouse today. This book, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Cats, takes you on a colourful journey through the club's rich history.
We Are Geelong explores the special relationship between the city of Geelong and Victoria's only regional AFL club; it relives the glory, and the pain, from the Cats' roller-coaster football ride; and it salutes the players, coaches and administrators who have won the hearts of the Geelong faithful. John Harms, Scott Gullan, Michael Lovett and other leading football writers provide the words. The photos do their own talking.
