About – AANP’s Very Own Book “Spurs’ Cult Heroes”


Spurs’ Cult Heroes

Heavens above – not content with rambling for Britain before and after every game, AANP has only gone and written a complete ruddy book on the mighty lilywhites! “Spurs’ Cult Heroes” traces the traditions and history of Tottenham Hotspur FC, by looking at players who achieved downright legendary status amongst us fans, peering on in awestruck wonder upon the heroes of N17.
It charts the greatest moments in the club’s history – from the FA Cup win of 1901, to Gazza’s demolition of that ‘orrible lot down the road in 1991, via the ’61 Double-winners, Ricky Villa’s wonder-goal and many more.

The book will also explore some of the behind-the-scenes stories – including what Dave Mackay said when he grabbed Billy Bremner’s shirt, how Keith Burkinshaw reacted when offered Ardiles and Villa, which impudent lilywhite dented the FA Cup and why Gazza turned up for training covered in £50 notes.

It includes interviews with legends such as Keith Burkinshaw, Ricky Villa and Gary Mabbutt – as well as recollections of literally oodles of fans, many of whom left their memories via the pages of this very blog.  

Spurs’ Cult Heroes is in shops and available to order online now from WHSmith, Amazon ,  Waterstones and Play – or you can keep tabs on its progress by becoming a facebook fan here or a twitter follower here.
