In this tell-all autobiography, Mortimer lifts the lid on the highs and lows of his decade at Villa and shares stories galore about the many characters he met through his life in football.

If you would like a personal dedication please use the box above and enter the name you would like it making out to. He left school in Birmingham, UK, with minimal qualifications and trained as a British Gas engineer. Considered as Aston Villa greatest captain ever, Dennis Mortimer was the man who lifted the European Cup in 1982. Mortimer received an honorary doctorate from the University of Worcester in 2011 for "his outstanding contribution to football". He became a journalist in 1994, writing predominantly on Warwickshire CCC and Aston Villa for Midlands newspapers.

As a football speaker and commentator Dennis Mortimer can be heard on Aston Villa’s official radio station, whilst his comments and quotes from his presentations as a sports speaker are often printed in national and regional newspapers. Mortimer became an integral part of Villa's midfield and in 1982, captained the side to a 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the European Cup, which would be the club's first and only European trophy to date. We do not accept requests for autographs, signed merchandise, fan mail, birthday messages or any other non-commercial contact with the speakers or acts. After the game, Mortimer swapped his match shirt with an unknown Bayern player and has since attempted to recover it.His presence exudes leadership and charisma, qualities that undoubtedly contributed to Aston Villa's triumph in Europe's most prestigious club competition. That was in 1981, and he achieved a European Cup win the following year, but his time at the club ended controversially. Dennis Mortimer became Aston Villa's most famous captain when he lifted the Lions’ first League Championship trophy in 71 years. Each vintage shirt, signed boot, evocative photo, or legendary jersey reflects Mortimer’s vision, midfield mastery, and his role in Villa’s historic European Cup triumph. Captured in 1980, Dennis beams with pride as his beautiful wife Janis presents him with their precious son weighing a healthy 6lb 4oz.
