Cult hero anyone?

We might not have any new heroes to induct in our hall of fame after the weekend, but there's still plenty of time for the current batch to write themselves into history. Chin up and other stuff you might do to put on a brave face. Plenty still to play for.

In the mean time, we can at least be content that we have a rich tapestry of history when it comes to players who know how to swagger. And All Action No Plot's first book captures the ethos of our club by looking at some of the finest to stick on a Lilywhite shirt. 20 of our very best players are included in 'Spurs' Cult Heroes'; essential reading by AANP blogger Michael Lacquiere.

It charts the greatest moments in the club’s history – from the FA Cup win of 1901, to Gazza’s demolition of Arsenal in 1991, via the Double-winners, Ricky Villa’s wonder-goal and many more. It also explores 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, who dented the FA Cup and why Gazza turned up for training covered in £50 notes.

So fancy a free copy? Of course you do.

Best caption wins one.


And for the losers of this wee caption comp, you can still pick yourselves up a copy in the Spurs shop all good bookshops and online (at, as well as WHSmith, Amazon, Tesco, Waterstones and Play). 

I think I just officially sold-out there, telling you to go buy something from the Spurs shop.

Comp also on DML facebook page.
