Jim Duggan's Glory book is banality-free; a pleasure to read from start to finish. He lists various aspects of the team's historic and recent achievements and failings, bestowing praise where due, withering criticism where appropriate. While it's not always a pleasant read (thanks to those awful years, which he experienced much as I did) even when chronicling the worst moments it doesn't have the self-righteousness of most fan-writing. We often laughed while we suffered, and so does he.
A shared experience of a moment of magic in the days before television were present. 1978-9, the season after a single year in the second division, Spurs were really good away from home, and were two decent strikers away from being a really good team; Glenn Hoddle filled in the gap by scoring from midfield. A win 3-2 at Aston Villa, coming from 2-0 down, the winner an exquisite chip on the run by Hoddle, was among my best moments as a Spurs fan. You had to be there; Jim Duggan was, and he tells it like it was, as he does in so much of this fine little book.
This book is NOT an 'out and out' history of the club (although there is also plenty of that) it is more of a clever and unique book of lists. Greatest Spurs games, heroes, villains, terrace chants... You name it, its in here. No matter what age of fan, there is something in there that will provoke memories for all of us who follow the original team from North London.
Written by a genuine fan of Tottenham Hotspur, 'The glory of Spurs' is a book that you can open at any page and find an interesting fact that you didn't know before about the club.
