The Glory Game is a must read for every Spurs supporter, I bought it at the time and it was quite controversial then. I lent it to someone, never got it back and had to buy the reissue, which includes an update, which is worth a read on its own.Recently read Vertigo by John Crace which was brilliant. I read another book called Number 10s which selected 10 great players who played in that role, the book was fairly average, I forget the author now.
The Boys From White Hart Lane is a great book to read if (like me) you have an interest in the great Spurs sides of the 80s.
I want to get the Glory Game by Hunter Davies, that's meant to be a great read.
Welcome back Chivers. Hope all is well with you.Thou Shall Not Pass ( The Anatomy Of Football's Centre-Half ). Leo Moynihan
Good read, anecdotes from past and present players, amusing and serious in equal parts. Interesting look on how the centre-half position has changed as football has developed over the years.
He was very pally with Souness in their younger days ,by all accounts.Looking forward to the Terry Naylor book which is out later this month although I assume it will be similar to most other football biographies.
I'm a bit of a book nerd, and I bought 6 first editions of 'The Glory Game' about 15 years ago for not a lot, and they are going up in value quite nicely. I've got an American 1st edition as well where the wages and transfers are in dollars. I'm sad.The Glory Game is a must read for every Spurs supporter, I bought it at the time and it was quite controversial then.
