Spurs v Qarabag - pick up a programme!
17 September 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Midfielder Tom Carroll adorns the front cover of tonight’s official matchday programme for the visit of Qarabag as we get our Europa League Group J campaign underway.
Once again, we’ve got 100 pages packed full of news, views, pictures, nostalgia and statistics – all yours for just £3.50.
After making his return to the fold in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Sunderland, Andros Townsend is the subject of our main interview. The England international reflects on some of his previous Europa League outings and talks us through his comeback after incurring an injury early in our pre-season campaign.
Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino also gives his views on our win at the Stadium of Light in his latest exclusive programme column, while we take a look at Qarabag’s squad ahead of our first ever competitive meeting with an Azerbaijani side.
Sticking with the European theme, we recall our Intertoto Cup campaign of 1995, while there’s a pictorial look at the career of our legendary former defender Graham Roberts, who famously scored in our 1984 UEFA Cup Final success against Anderlecht.
Elsewhere, with long-serving winger Aaron Lennon have recently left us to join Everton, we revisit some of his finest moments in a Spurs shirt, while the latest instalment of our ‘Tracking Back’ feature looks at what recent signing Kevin Wimmer and former defender Gary Doherty were up to on this week in seasons gone by.
Also, with Wayne Rooney having just become England’s top all-time goalscorer, we shine the spotlight on our legendary former player Vivian Woodward, who is one of three ex-Spurs stars in the list of the top 10 all-time England hitmen and has the best goal ratio in the top 20.
Plus, there’s a look back at Graeme Souness’ one and only appearance in a Spurs shirt, we hear from popular former midfielder Teemu Tainio about his memories of playing at White Hart Lane and we’ve got an interview with Spurs fan and hockey player Helen Richardson-Walsh, who recently won gold at the EuroHockey Nations Championship.
All this and much more is included in the latest edition of our official matchday programme – on sale from several points around the stadium and from the Spurs Megastore this evening (Thursday, September 17).
