Description

They were the last great Spurs team. A tight-knit group of London lads laced with Latin creativity, Yorkshire grit and Scottish genius, playing for a few hundred quid a week and the glory of putting on the Tottenham shirt. They won two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup together, they went drinking together and they appeared on Top of the Pops together. They were The Boys From White Hart Lane. Renowned Tottenham authors Martin Cloake and Adam Powley have tracked down their childhood heroes to produce a book of wonderfully vivid and candid interviews with ten members of the team including Steve Perryman, Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa. It is a book that not only opens the doors of the White Hart Lane dressing room during this iconic period for the club, but takes the reader back in time to a football world before Premier League, multibillionaire foreign owners and millionaire reserve players sitting on the bench in yellow boots and headbands. Packed with insight, revelations and wonderful stories - including the training ground prank which saw a player break his toe on a breeze block, the all-night drinking session in Swaziland and the story of how Ossie dented the FA Cup - The Boys From White Hart Lane is an intimate and eye-opening portrait of the men who put the glory back into Spurs.
