"The 1977–1978 season was the 78th completed season of The Football League. Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest side took on the First Division by storm, by winning the League Cup on 22 March and confirming themselves as league champions the following month. They joined a small and exclusive company of clubs to have won the league championship one season after promotion.

Manchester United broke the British transfer fee record on 9 February by paying Leeds United £ 495,000 for Scottish defender Gordon McQueen. Bob Latchford was the top goalscorer, winning a £10,000 prize offered by a national newspaper for the first footballer to reach 30 goals in a single season, which had not happened in the First Division since the 1971–72 season and in the Second Division since the 1965–66 season. West Ham United, Newcastle United and Leicester City were relegated from the First Division.
Bolton Wanderers, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur were promoted from the Second Division, while Blackpool, Mansfield Town and Hull City were relegated
Wrexham, Cambridge United and Preston North End were promoted from the Third Division, while Portsmouth, Port Vale, Bradford City and Hereford United were relegated.
Wimbledon play their first season in the Football League, replacing Workington. Watford F.C., Southend United, Swansea City and Brentford were promoted, while Southport were relegated."

The teams included are Aston Villa, Everton, Ipswich Town, Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United. The facing page shows the introduction, which discusses all the changes and developments of the Football League since it began in 1888.

The first team to appear in the 1977-1978 Soccer Stars album is Arsenal. 14 football stickers are allocated to each club, arranged in neat rows across the page and interspersed with colour, and black and white, photographs of the teams in action. The clubs each get a single page, and as in the other FKS picture stamp albums, the statistics and biographies of each player are recorded below where the sticker itself sits.

The last page shows team photograph stickers for those teams who weren't covered on the inside front cover.
