The official stadium tour video - as shown to visitors to the Boleyn Ground - has now been released on DVD for your enjoyment at home.

Running at just over 30 minutes it's a tad on the short side but is still packed with content; indeed, all of our Cup Final appearances are here for your perusal (including some rare footage of the 1940 War Cup Final) plus some of the more famous European nights.

The last three years are also covered extensively, right up to the final game of last season when Carlos Tevez's winner at Old Trafford preserved the club's top-flight status.

There are one or two minor errors - no footage from the 1923 Cup Final (in fact there's nothing prior to 1940 which is almost half of the period covered by the title) and the presence of Frank Lampard Junior in the famous players clip may ruffle a few feathers.

But if you're looking for a quick fix that contains all of our most historic matches - or looking to introduce someone to the club's history - you'll be hard pushed to find anything as good for the price.
