5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written narrative of Spurs heroes, 5 April 2010
By 
This review is from: Spurs' Cult Heroes: The 20 Greatest Legends in Tottenham's History (Hardcover)
Although I do not support Spurs, this was a book well worth reading. The writing was simple as the author navigated his way through those he regards as the best Tottenham Hotspurs players of all time. Of course everyone will not agree with his choice and he was quite upfront in conceding that fact.

Cult Heroes' list starts off with Sandy Brown (never heard of him before anyway) who played for Spurs between 1900 and 1901, scoring 25 goals in the process. At first, I wondered why such as mediocre history should be included in the list, but then as I read on, it became clear that he masterminded Spurs' first silverware - the FA cup in 1901 in which he scored 15 goals in 8 games against 5 different opponents.

The book continued with the historical slant, dishing out facts, accolades and praises for an array of players who must be evergreen in the minds of any genuine Spurs fan. I particularly enjoyed the stories of Danny Blanchflower who captained the Spurs to a Championship and FA Cup double in 1960/1961. Anyway, much of it became familiar to us younger folks and non-Spurs addicts when the author started describing the antics of players like Glenn Hoddle, Chris Waddle, Paul Gascoigne, Jurgen Klinsmann and David Ginola.

In the end, I was not converted to support Spurs, but the book helped me to develop a greater respect for the team down the road.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read!, 27 July 2010
This review is from: Spurs' Cult Heroes: The 20 Greatest Legends in Tottenham's History (Hardcover)
Arguably the best sports book I ever read. I found it to be concise, descriptive and unlike other books, very to the point detailing the best legends that Tottenham ever had. Also loved the profiles written on Ozzie Ardiles and Ricky Villa, detailing the realities and challenges they faced when first coming to the club, not only realistic but very inspiring overall. A true unmisable treasure for any football fan of any club!
