my favourite passage covers the away european cupwinners cup tie in foreign climes. drawn away to a french side, bill lambasts the team at halftime due to their lack of application - and they promptly go out in the second half and proceed to gain a 0-0 draw, with barely any more effort. good result in hindsight, but that is not enough for bill - and he hammers that home to the players in typical unforgiving style.
a warts n all depiction of the way football was before the huge injection of cash and the new found interest in the premier league. definitely worth a read!
Fabulously crafted book that follows a complete season. This isn't a reproduced diary but a look at the working that make the Tottenham clock tick. Players, Wives, Coaches, Directors, Secretaries and Supporters all bring the season together.
