Book Description

12 Sep 2013

Born in Bow in 1980, Ledley King joined Tottenham Hotspur as a trainee at the age of sixteen, and was a White Hart Lane talisman from his 1999 debut through to his retirement in 2012.

Telling it how it was behind the scenes at Spurs during his years progressing from schoolboy trainee to club captain, King dramatically chronicles the turbulent times and personalities of the modern White Hart Lane.

Yet above all, King is the story of one of the most widely admired and respected English footballers of modern times - one of passion and roots, friendship, courage, grit; and of a role model of great strength yet rare humility.

Product Description

Review

'An entertaining and easy read ... as well as being the story of King's career, the book is also a history of Spurs in the 21st century. It's not been the smoothest of journeys, but if you choose to use King to refresh your memories of it, as well as learn more about what makes the great man tick, you'll be doing yourself a favour' Spurs Web.

'Now you can read the man's story told as only he can tell it - honestly and from the heart ... I wholeheartedly commend this book' Spurs Odyssey.

About the Author

As well as studying to be a coach, Ledley King now mentors disadvantaged Tottenham teenagers and acts as a Tottenham Hotspur Club Ambassador: continuing to give back to the community that shaped his life and the club that holds his heart.

Award-winning journalist Mat Snow has been a Spurs and England fan since 1966 and is the former editor of the football magazine FourFourTwo and music monthly Mojo. He has written for numerous national newspapers and other periodicals, including the official club magazine, Hotspur.

Oh Ledley Ledley,
He's only got one knee,
He's better than John Terry,
Oh Ledley Ledley.

Best book I've ever read, much better than Terry's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars True legend 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
True legend, great book containing season by season reviews and tales aswell as england stories and players and managers past and present. Fantastic book by a decent human being and club legend, book is suitable for not just thfc fans but any football fans and anyone who has suffered with injuries. Nice to have an insight into Ledleys current role with the club too. No scandal in this book just a nice interesting read.
