"It's not until a book like [this] . . . comes along that you can really appreciate the greatness that has graced the White Hart Lane turf over the years. . . . . Lacquiere covers a lot of ground in reminding Spurs fans exactly what made them fall in love with the club in the first place." --ESPNSoccernet

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.
