A People's History of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club

(Pitch Publishing 2016)

A People's History of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is the first attempt to write the history of a club's support. Written alongside respected Spurs blogger Alan Fisher, the book uses original research and interviews with many of the fans who have supported the club over the years to piece together a unique perspective.

This people's history looks at what the club means to its fans, and how that relationship has changed. It includes sections on the battles between the club's fans and the club itself over the identity of Tottenham Hotspur and on the emergence of an international fan base that is creating its own culture of support. Along the way it introduces a rich cast of characters.
