Manager Harry Redknapp looks ahead to the new season with great anticipation in an in-depth interview in the July issue of Hotspur magazine.

Manager Harry Redknapp looks ahead to the new season with great anticipation in an in-depth interview in the July issue of Hotspur magazine.

But then Harry is always optimistic and that inner strength certainly helps inspire the players in turn. In short, he just can't wait to get going!

Harry uses many examples from last season to illustrate the team's progress - and now he's ready to test that upwards development as we face the added challenge of the Champions League.

And although it's been a busy summer of sport, particularly with the World Cup, Harry admits that he finds it hard to switch off from Spurs and the domestic scene in general.

"I just love football," he says. "When you are in the game you want to do so well that you never switch off. Once one season has finished, you are straight into thinking about the next - as I'm doing now. That's how it is all the time."

Read the full interview in our official magazine where our former skipper Steve Perryman also answers questions from readers and talks of his pride in holding the club's playing appearance record.

"This is such a big club and so many truly great players have played for Spurs," he explains. "I know that I was never as good as Pat Jennings or Dave Mackay, for example, but I stand comparison on my consistency and that's the key."

Steve also compares the management styles of Bill Nicholson and Keith Burkinshaw, reveals who he voted for when he himself won ‘Footballer of the Year' in 1982 and recalls his first day as a youngster at White Hart Lane.

Luka Modric shares his delight at signing a new contract and his conviction that he can achieve all that he wants as a Spurs player. In further exclusive interviews, Younes Kaboul eagerly anticipates the prospect of getting back into European competition and Tom Huddlestone reflects on how consistency in his selection was mirrored in the consistency of his play.

Danny Rose talks about the road that took him to White Hart Lane and reveals how he was inspired by the performances of Paul Scholes - and by the Spurs fans on his first visit to the Lane.

He recalls: "Spurs lost 4-0 to Manchester United but what stuck out for me was the great atmosphere and the way the fans got behind the team, even though they were losing."

We look ahead to the team's pre-season build-up with a special focus on the three new promoted clubs that we will face in the Premier League. We also tell you more about our new signing, Brazilian international, Sandro.

First team coach Joe Jordan is profiled; we track down our former goalkeeper Kasey Keller who is still playing in the MLS in the States; and look back at last season in words and pictures. And mention of the World Cup prompts our former England striker Martin Chivers to recall one World Cup memory that he would like to forget!

Rupert Grint, Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, tells us what made him a Spurs fan; we detail our full and impressive list of Welsh international players; and look back on the career of iconic left-back Cyril Knowles.

And one lucky reader will win Younes Kaboul's signed match shirt in our latest free-to-enter competition.

It's all in the July issue of Hotspur magazine - on sale now.
