Product Description

Review

This book was a joy to read, as Oliver Wright became hooked on Spurs from about the same time I started following Tottenham myself and all the seasons described in the book brought back a lot of wonderful memories. The way Oliver describes his devotion to the Lillywhites is very recognizable to most Spurs fans. After all the ups and downs from the past two decades, we all hope that the next season will finally bring the success we dream off. The book describes the seasons from 1987 until now, including the Martin Jol era. "...From The Lane..." is a well written book that every Spurs fan will enjoy. -- Spurswebguide.com, October 2007

Format: Paperback
"From the Lane" is a well-written and warming account of the frustrations of supporting Tottenham Hotspur over the past two decades. Its from the perspective of loyal fan who stayed true to his club through thick and thin. Rather than attemping to cover a unique aspect of football this book is a real story of life at the lane with all its highs and lows! I recommend this book to anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s with a genuine love the beautiful game.

A thoroughly enjoyable read. Would strongly recommend to all football fans, not just of Tottenham. I'm sure they will be able to relate to the highs and lows that following your team entails...these moments are really well described by Oliver Wright in this book.
Also think it would make a great read for those that have never been to an English football game, as Oliver paints a great picture of the sights and sounds of a typical matchday.

Having been quite sceptical at the idea of this book I am pleasantly surprised. Even though I'm not a football fan I found this a very enjoyable read and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. It's not just about football but relates to the highs and lows of life as well. I look forward to reading more from this aspriing author

Format: Paperback
This is a really honest account of being a Spurs supporter during a time when I started going to games myself. It contains good descriptions of some of the key games for the club since the late 80s but also games important to the author for his own personal reasons. As a match-goer myself over this period, I felt I could really relate to the book and it was good to relive some of my own memories along the way. Would recommend. James
