Glory, Glory Lane : The Extraordinary History of Tottenham Hotspur's Home for 118 Years, Hardback Book

Glory, Glory Lane : The Extraordinary History of Tottenham Hotspur's Home for 118 Years Hardback

Description

Glory, Glory Lane is the life-affirming history - including a momentous last season - of a world-famous football stadium, home to Tottenham Hotspur for 118 years.

A Victorian structure turned wraparound 21st-century all-seater, it became a theatre of dreams for supporters all attracted by teams which played the 'Spurs way' to achieve glory.

The Lane gave a stage to a conveyor belt of legends from Cameron to Alli via Nicholson, Blanchflower, Greaves, Hoddle and Klinsmann.

It provided unforgettable memories in unforgettable atmospheres - heart-lifting, heart-breaking, nerve-racking.

Its story veers from founders obsessed by Harry Hotspur to Harry Kane via Harry Redknapp; through matches, personalities, ground developments and threatened closure, all with first-hand accounts.

It's hard to imagine how a new GBP750m stadium can ever replace the edifice which shut its gates for the last time after Spurs played Manchester United in May 2017, having created a daunting legacy.
