Tottenham Hotspur FC was formed in 1882 and the club turned professional in 1895. Large crowds flocked to watch the side play and they were rewarded by Spurs winning the FA Cup in 1901. Tottenham reached the top flight in 1909 and won the title for the first time in 1951. Arthur Rowe was the manager of the club at the time and he had developed successful ‘push and run’ tactics that made Spurs an attacking and entertaining side. Bill Nicholas became manager in 1958 and he quickly rebuilt the aging team. Tottenham Hotspur won eight major trophies in sixteen years under Nicholas, including a First Division title, three FA Cups, two League Cups and two European trophies. Tottenham’s success on the continent created history, as Spurs became the first British side to win a European trophy when they won the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1963. Tottenham then went on to win the first ever UEFA Cup competition, which took place in 1972. Spurs won the UEFA Cup for a second time in 1984 and the club has since enjoyed further domestic cup success. The 2008 League Cup win was particularly satisfying for Tottenham Hotspur, as they lifted the trophy having beaten London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea back-to-back.
A Tottenham Gift Book can be an inspired present for a Spurs fan. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Spurs Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Tottenham memorabilia collection.
This Tottenham Football Book opens with Spurs beating Blackburn Rovers 2-1 in the second round of the 1907 FA Cup. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.
Some of the early stories featured in this Spurs Football Book include promotion to Division One in 1909, beating Wolverhampton Wanderers in the 1921 FA Cup Final and a report on the club’s first top flight title in 1951. The Gift Books also feature newspaper coverage from Bill Nicholas’ golden era, such as the league and FA Cup ‘double’ in 1961, the defence of the FA Cup in the following season and the European Cup Winners’ Cup win in 1963. You can read about Spurs beating Chelsea in the 1967 FA Cup Final, the League Cup wins of 1971 and 1973, and the victorious UEFA Cup campaign of 1971-1972. All the major honours are covered in this special Tottenham Book; relive more FA Cup wins from 1981, 1982 and 1991, the second UEFA Cup trophy in 1984 and revisit the Worthington Cup victory of 1999 and the League Cup success of 2008. The Gift Book also includes articles on the signing of Danny Blanchflower in 1954 and Jimmy Greaves in 1962, Terry Venables’ first Spurs goal in 1966, plus his appointment as manager in 1987.
