Glory Nights:From Wankdorf To Wembley

Dodging the crazies on the all-night bus. Running from the opposition while running a raging fever. Trapped next to the blocked toilet on a coach to Germany, then searched by armed police. Blizzards close British roads, save for a single carload of Spurs fans sliding up and down the M1, risking life and limb to rescue a forgotten passport in time to catch the ferry. The road to glory takes many twists and turns.

From Wankdorf to Wembley is the entertaining story of long time Tottenham fan Mel Gomes's european tour during Spurs first, and perhaps only, season in the Champions League. It begins with the outburst of unrestrained joy that greeted Peter Crouch's late winner at Manchester City that took us there and ends at Wembley but sadly not with Spurs as he blags a freebie to share in Barcelona's delight.

Mel takes us to all the matches home and away, together with a bunch of faithful travellers, and invokes memories of those glory glory nights that raise goosepimples at the thrill of it all. An engaging companion, join him as he recreates not only vivid match reports from a fan's perspective but also the numbing minutiae that are essential elements of going away. The anxious dashes for connections as he runs dangerously late, how tricky it can be just to get into a football ground, wasted hours in airport lounges and the all-important search for a beer or two.

Mel is good company but unobtrusive, a welcome change from other fan books where ego dominates. He's your mate who is the quiet one of the group, in the background but you can't have a good time without him.

Mel Gomes' fast paced & excellently in-depth book is a brilliant read. It follows his trips across Europe in search of glory for his beloved Tottenham Hotspur.
I enjoyed the match analysis offered for each of the rounds of the Champions League that year, and was glad to see the book didn't end with Tottenham's exit in the QF, but continued on to follow Barcelona all the way to Wembley. The personal asides were refreshing and made the book a cracking read, that and some hilarious situations in pursuit of glory.
A must read for all Spurs fans, and a sure fire hit for football fans in general,

Excellent book somewhat spoilt by numerous grammatical errors. Who was the proofreader? Captures the mood and the moment well though.

Great to relive some of the recent Spurs roller coaster rides and inspiration to getting back on it this year. Good read.
