hotspur - OUT NOW


Ledley King talks for the first time about the frustrations and limitations of his injury in this month's hotspur.

Big Led tells our official magazine that Spurs will always be his priority as he nurses his troublesome knee though each game. But such is his national pride that he will never give up on his England career.

King still works hard on his fitness with daily gym work and swimming to keep the pressure off his knee. And although he badly misses being out there training with the lads at the Lodge, his inner determination is seeing him through.

He says: "Playing for Tottenham Hotspur for as long as possible is the only thing that matters now, so that means listening to the club staff and the medical experts - it's a time to be sensible."

And Ledley has contributed a pair of his match boots for the latest great prize in our free to enter competition.


Once again manager Harry Redknapp answer readers' questions. He relates his abiding affection for the late Bobby Moore and speaks of the qualities required to become a great player. Harry also talks about the need for mutual respect in football and regrets the fact that youngsters are no longer learning the basics of the game in the parks and the street as he did as a lad.

Didier Zokora is also answering questions - and he can't hide his pride when the Spurs fans sing his name. "It makes me very happy and I love it," he smiles.

And Zokora's commitment to the side leads him to admit that missing that great Wembley chance against Chelsea in the Carling Cup Final is still on his mind! To make amends he's going all out to score his first goal for the club before too long!

Meanwhile Aaron Lennon believes that he's currently in the form of his career - and Harry Redknapp and David Beckham agree!

"I'm playing the best I've ever played and I'm the fittest I've ever been - there's more to come," he predicts.

We show the latest images of our proposed Northumberland Development Project in a two page ‘stadium update' and celebrate this month's 25th anniversary of our 1984 UEFA Cup success. Hero of the night Tony Parks, skipper Graham Roberts and Tony Galvin look back while Alan Mullery and Martin Chivers talk about our first success in the competition in 1972.

Darts ace Wayne Mardle shares his love of Spurs in another exclusive interview. And he is inspired about the future.

He says: "We're definitely going in the right direction and it's too big a club not to achieve, especially when there is such a dedicated base of support."

Hairstyling icon Nicky Clarke is our ‘celebrity columnist' and discusses, among other things, how important a football club is to its local community.

He writes: "Remembering that football is still a what other industry would you get that kind of togetherness?"

Our top 10 exciting finishes are detailed and, for history fans, we look back at our 1951 ‘Push and Run' season and at 1960 as Bill Nicholson puts the final touches to his ‘Double' side. Terry Yorath also talks about Spurs in the Seventies and current life as manager of non-League Margate.
