Hotspur - OUT NOW!

Gareth Bale is the man of the moment and is the main interview in the December issue of Hotspur magazine.

Yet while there is so much Bale hype and excitement flying about at the moment as Gareth shines in game after game, the player himself is keeping his life as low key as ever.

"It's nice...but I'm just concentrating on my football and wanting to improve as a player," he says with typical understatement. "I'm keeping my feet on the ground and just being me.

"I think I am playing as well as I have ever done in my career. I'm still young and I've got a lot more to come, a lot more to learn and, hopefully, I can become a better player."

Read the full interview in the current issue of our official monthly magazine where readers also have the chance to win Gareth's signed match boots in our latest exclusive and free-to-enter competition.

We ask manager Harry Redknapp and 11 of his players what they want for Christmas while Peter Crouch tells us why he loves this time of year and what a buzz he gets out of shopping on Christmas Eve!

In his regular column, Ossie Ardiles talks about how difficult his first Christmas was so far from home. Teddy Sheringham is the man in the hot seat as he answers your questions on goals, games, players, partners...and breakfasts!

And he also recalls how it gradually dawned on him that his career was over, despite playing on for so long.

"It takes few months to realise that you're no longer a footballer," he says. "Then suddenly it hits you...and you think ‘wow, it's all over for me. Twenty five years have gone, just like that."

Jermaine Jenas is our man in the ‘High Fives' feature where he talks about his early days in football and his love of music. Team mate Michael Dawson, who recalls being in the Nottingham Forest youth team with JJ, also participates in a question-and -answer session as he looks back on the road that took him from Wensleydale to White Hart Lane.

We catch up with Ricky Villa on his latest return to this country and also talk with our former Dutch international Johnny Metgod who predicts great things for fellow countryman Rafael van der Vaart.

In our history section, we look back on 12 games actually played on Christmas Day and what their results made to our season at the time.

And celebrated actor Jude Law drops in on Spurs Lodge where he tells us what prompted his life-long support of Spurs and how excited he is by our Champions League progress. Chris Waddle, Allan Nielsen and John White are also featured together with our regular look at what was happening this month in 1960 as our ‘Double' aspirations began to take on real hope.

It's all in Hotspur magazine - a great read for all Spurs fans.
