From the publisher:
An Echo of Glory: Tottenham Hotspur in the 21st Century delves into the famous club's recent past to uncover how Spurs emerged from a stagnant period in the 1990s to once again compete for the game's highest honours. At the turn of the millennium, Tottenham were languishing in mid-table mediocrity, out of all the cup competitions and about to say goodbye to their star player. Just two decades later they had challenged for the league title, built one of the world's finest stadiums and come so close to the ultimate glory of lifting the Champions League trophy.
But this story is not without its twists and turns. In this century, the club has been through some of its most testing times, as heroes have come and gone and the revolving door of managers has hardly stopped spinning. Gareth Thomas peels back the layers on the key characters that have left their mark on the club, bringing fresh perspectives and shedding new light on the issues and events that continue to shape the present and future of Tottenham Hotspur.
Originally from the UK, Gareth Thomas currently divides his time between London and Madrid. He has been writing about football for five years and was featured in the widely acclaimed Iberia Chronicles: A History of Spanish and Portuguese Football. He has written for publications such as These Football Times and Total Football Analysis Magazine.
