This is the story of the Collingwood Football Club, as told through the key events in each of the club's 125 years, from 1892 to 2016.

As fans, we watch and support our team year after year. But even in the bleakest seasons, there's always something that – with the benefit of hindsight – turns out to be momentous for the club. The debut of a gun player; a genius trade or draft decision; a coaching or administration change of direction; a game that signalled a turning point; or even something completely out of left field.

This book tracks the evolution of Collingwood by focusing on one key event for each season, using that as the basis for a wider exploration of the club's position at the time, and where it went next. The result is an accessible and unique look at the development of the biggest, most loved and most loathed football club in Australia.
