Shirts, Shorts and Spurs

This hilarious romp charts the dramatic ups and downs of Tottenham Hotspur, as seen through the eyes of one of its most unlikely heroes: Roy Reyland, the loyal kit man who has served Spurs for thirty years.

He has visited Wembley more times that many top players have, and his story is one of total devotion to the club.

From the Lane...

From the Lane...

Just over twenty years ago I went to my first Tottenham Hotspur football match at White Hart Lane. From that moment I was hooked. From the Lane is the story of one fan's experiences in the following of their club over two decades. It touches on the factual aspects of the games I have been to, but is centred mainly on the emotional journey that this obsession undoubtedly provides. It is written based on personal experiences, all against a real-life background that covers the vast majority of my lifetime. From that first Chris Waddle and Glenn Hoddle-inspired moment, through the years of such great players as Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker, Jurgen Klinsmann and David Ginola, right up to the current era, this story reveals how being a supporter of a football club is able to affect a human being, able to provide both sadness and joy. From the Lane is a story that all Tottenham fans, and indeed dedicated football fans everywhere, will enjoy and be able to relate to.

The Double

The Inside Story of Spurs' Triumphant 1960-61 Season

The Double

'Tottenham Hotspur's reputation around the world was forged by the great double-winning team fashioned by Bill Nicholson, and every Spurs manager since then has lived in the shadow of the great man's achievements over the course of that amazing 1960-61 season' - from the foreword by Martin Jol When the legendary Danny Blanchflower climbed the steps to the Royal box at Wembley to collect the FA Cup in 1961, he made football history - Tottenham Hotspur had become the first team to win 'The Double' of FA Cup and League Championship in the twentieth century. This compelling book tells the inside story of the double-winning campaign through extensive interviews with players, directors, managers and fans. Like Hunter Davies's ground-breaking The Glory Game, this is more than just a book about one club. It describes the golden age of the game at the dawn of the 1960s and will therefore appeal to all football fans.
