After years of languishing in mid-table obscurity, Tottenham Hotspur were finally starting to recapture their glory days under Dutch manager Martin Jol. Could they finally emulate those special years when Bill Nicholson led them to the League and Cup double?  The answer is 'no'. Jol got the sack and the club stumbled again until Harry Redknapp took over.

In this book journalist Alasdair Gold, editor of the Spurscommunity website and writer for the official club magazine, takes a sideways look at the 2005/2006 season. He marvels at the club attracting superstars of the ilk of Edgar Davids and hopes the days of Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle finally become club history rather than better days.  Can Tottenham Hotspur at last regain their proper place in English football under Jol? We now know the answer was no, but at the time he seemed the man who was to bring back the glory, glory days.
