Also included is the historic game against Bradford City after which Barnsley obtained promotion to the Premier League. Apart from a summary report, reference is also made to post-match comments from managers and players. The reason for inclusion of a particular match varies according to several key factors. It might be a notable FA Cup game against formidable opponents, maybe a key battle that resulted in promotion, a spectacular score line or even a fixture in which the brilliance of one or more players was exceptional. From the latter, examples include Frank Eatons first ever five goals in one match, the great Tommy Taylors hat-trick in only his second appearance for the club and a brilliant individual performance by Arthur Kaye. Also included are several famous games in which the players performed exceptionally well even in the face of defeat.

Spurs' Unsung Hero is the untold rollercoaster tale of the forgotten member of a side rated as one of the greatest club teams of all time. Terry Dyson breaks a half-century of silence to put the record straight. He was reckoned key to Bill Nicholson's outfit of the fabled "Glory Glory Days"--the first Double-winning team of the 20th century and the first British side to lift a European trophy. From a farmer's field in Yorkshire to fields of domestic and international glory at White Hart Lane, Wembley, and Rotterdam, Dyson's story is packed with first-hand insights and anecdotes inside and outside the game. Spurs' Unsung Hero is honest, heart-warming, and moving. The 5ft 3in jockey's son finally relives his golden memories, talks about his legendary teammates, and reveals the giant role he played in the side that rewrote soccer folklore--against which every subsequent Spurs team is judged.

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 �750m 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.

Rangers In London is the story of the nine matches between 1960 and 1971 when Britain and the World’s most domestically successful football club with the greatest and most fervent support travelled south from Glasgow to the Capital city. Almost every game seems to have thrown up something amazing or special. From the first European Cup tie played in London to a match described by the legendary and equally reticent Spurs manager, Bill Nicholson as the greatest game on earth. Alex Ferguson’s Rangers debut at Arsenal, QPR’s Rodney Marsh assaulting two players on the pitch and a teenager whisked from work in Glasgow in the morning to play in goal against a team of internationals and a world cup winner in the evening at Tottenham. And we best not forget Rangers appearances at Chelsea for the man they called Chopper either and at Highbury for a gentleman who at his peak was quite possibly the best goalkeeper in Europe. And much more… Unashamedly nostalgic and so many great stories, histories and characters to recall, celebrate and write about. In a more modest way, we try to chart the development of football at Ibrox and in London, on and off the field at a time when football was beginning to become more sophisticated, commercial and international. There’s a bit of sociology too, as we look at the emergence of football hooliganism, skinheadism and wider societal cultures in and around football at that time. Does what go around, come around with a slightly different twist? I’ll let the reader decide. But I hope you’ll enjoy taking in these matches with me, and get the same pleasure as the devoted thousands and perhaps you were one, who ‘followed on’ to London with Rangers. Win, lose or draw.

The most memorable moments from the club's distinguished past, together with quirky anecdotes and legendary characters, produce an irresistibly dippable Blues diary with an entry for every day of the year From the club's foundation in 1905, all thanks to an Aberdeen terrier, to their emergence as one of the Premier League's greatest successes, Chelsea's rollercoaster history takes in a period with star players but no opposition, colorful managers, celebrity fans, and the club's sale for £1—all crowned by victory in the UEFA Champions League.
