Big Chiv!

Signed by Martin Chivers

Martin Chivers was born to score goals. In his heyday with Tottenham Hotspur and England in the late sixties and early seventies he was considered by many to be the finest striker in Europe. This is his story.

In Big Chiv (the affectionate nickname he earnt from the Spurs fans who idolised him), Chivers tells the story of a life driven by his abiding passion, the need to score goals. For Southampton as a teenage striking sensation, for Spurs, for England and later for Servette in Switzerland, Norwich, Brighton and Vard FC in Norway.

It is a candid and revealing insight into the life of a footballer in a golden era of the game, and inside the mind of one of football’s great strikers. More than that, it is a fascinating journey back in time that re-opens the dressing room door on the great Spurs team of the 1970s, the wonderful characters and their exploits on and off the pitch.

A key theme of the Big Chiv is a fascinating examination of Chivers’s turbulent relationship with legendary Tottenham manager Bill Nicholson.

Immensely powerful yet somehow graceful at he same time with immaculate touch and control, Martin Chivers was a magnificent footballer and this – his long-awaited autobiography – is a book to match.

The Boys From White Hart Lane

Signed by Steve Perryman

They were the last great Spurs team. A tight-knit group of London lads laced with Latin creativity, Yorkshire grit and Scottish genius, playing for a few hundred quid a week and the glory of putting on the Tottenham shirt. They won two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup together, they went drinking together and they appeared on Top of the Pops together. They were The Boys From White Hart Lane.

Renowned Tottenham authors Martin Cloake and Adam Powley have tracked down their childhood heroes to produce a book of wonderfully vivid and candid interviews with ten members of the team including Steve Perryman, Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa.

It is a book that not only opens the doors of the White Hart Lane dressing room during this iconic period for the club, but takes the reader back in time to a football world before Premier League, multi-billionaire foreign owners and millionaire reserve players sitting on the bench in yellow boots and headbands.

Packed with insight, revelations and wonderful stories – including the training ground prank which saw a player break his toe on a breeze block, the all-night drinking session in Swaziland and the story of how Ossie dented the FA Cup – The Boys From White Hart Lane is an intimate and eye-opening portrait of the men who put the glory back into Spurs."A cracking read. This is the real story of the greatest team I played in - and had the honour of captaining - and it's full of stories even I didn't know."
