Product Description

Almost since their formation at the end of the nineteenth century, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have battled to become London's top football club. Their rivalry was intensified in 1913 by Arsenal's move from Plumstead to Highbury, only three miles from Tottenham's White Hart Lane ground, and moreso in 1919 when Spurs were "robbed" of their First Division status by the clever lobbying and skillful manipulation of the Arsenal chairman, Sir Henry Norris. The Battle of London takes an unbiased look at these events and tells the story of the rivalry between these two great clubs from the 1880s to the 1970s. In doing so author Rex Pardoe compares the achievements of Tottenham and Arsenal in their respective League and Cup doubles of 1960-61 and 1970-71 and looks at their successes in the European Cup Winners Cup and European Fairs Cup. The final chapter containing comparative tables of the clubs' achievements in the League and Cup has been fully updated.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent study of Arsenal and Spurs; the history of both clubs, their highs and their lows, the great managers and the great players who have played for each club.....and sometimes for both. The author looks in detail at the Spurs double of 1960-61 and the first Arsenal double ten years later. Which was the better of the two and why? I won't spoil things by giving the author's opinion. Read it for yourself.
As an Arsenal fan I found it enlightening to read about Spurs. As fans we may joke about them not having won the league for more 50 years but, in all honesty, I didn't fully appreciate what a great side Spurs had in the 1960s until I read this book. Whilst the rivarly between both teams will remain, a little appreciation for some of the respective achievements of both clubs isn't a bad thing. The Battle of London is an unbiased account (the Author is a Tottenham fan) and is both critical and supportive of both clubs in equal measure.
The final chapter has various tables of comparative stats (league and cup performance etc) and has been fully updated.
An excellent book that's well worth the time and money I invested in it.

I bought this book many years ago, and was both surprised and delighted to see it on Kindle. The great beauty of it, apart from the short but indepth game by game analysis is the account of the 'Double' seasons. Excellent value for Gooners and Spurs fans alike.

on the whole really great book , strange comment on the champions 2006 match against Barcelona this book says arsenal goal keeper bought down a barca player within the first 18 minuet's of there game .the official records book states we were just 18 minuets away from glory winning 1 go up then Jens Lenmen fouled a Barca player and of course sent off . leaving Arsenal down to ten men, against Barcelona it would help to have
12 players let alone 11 down to 10 no chance they scored the penalty and got another goal ending Barcelona 2. Arsenal 1.just getting the facts right. the Author must support Spurs. But it really is a brilliant book. will be great if he were to do another 70s onwards .
