Hotspur: Head to Head
Tottenham Hotspur: Head to Head reveals
for the first time how Tottenham have done against
every club they’ve ever played, in any competition,
since the club entered the Football League. From Altrincham
to York City, Spurs’ complete record of matches
against each club is looked at in detail and illustrated
with pictures. Also included is a table of players
who’ve played for both clubs and a ‘fact
file’ highlighting the most surprising nuggets
to be gleaned from this fresh way of interpreting
the club’s statistics.
Did you know that Spurs won at Burnley only once
in 29 games between 1926 and 1969? Or that Mansfield
Town and Glossop are the only teams to have played
Spurs competitively more than once and never lost?
And did you know that when Garth Crooks scored the
winner for Tottenham at Anfield in March 1985, it
was Spurs’ first away win against Liverpool
since the sinking of the Titanic 73 years earlier?
All these facts and figures, along with countless
others, are easily accessible in Tottenham Hotspur:
Head to Head.
