The Pocket Book of Spurs is the successor to the best-selling series of Spurs Miscellanies. Packed with information and in full colour throughout, the book tells the story of one of football’s most famous sides from its formation in 1882 to today’s star-studded squad of Defoe, Modric, Lennon and Palacios, together with sections on the team’s greatest goals, legendary players and most thrilling tactics alongside illustrated histories of the club badge and kit and a detailed cutaway diagram of White Hart Lane. Action images of stars old and new are complemented by colourful diagrams and sketches by Bob Bond, who illustrated the Roy of the Rovers cartoon strip for many years. The Pocket Book is rounded off with a club directory and a host of stats and records. On sale in all good bookshops from 5th October, The Pocket Book of Spurs can be pre-ordered direct from the publisher’s website.
I’ve also just finished a stint working for my publishers VSP, editing the series of Pocket football books, and helping out with a number of other projects, details of which can be found on my website.
