A bucket list for many often contains a regularly keen desire to pen a published book, the ultimate creative freedom in a literary sense. In actor and long time Spurs fan Chris Cowlin’s case though, that one was crossed out a long time ago. In fact he’s drawn a line through it 126 times to be precise, despite being a relative nipper within the industry at 34.

Cowlin’s latest book though is one particularly close to his heart – The Ultimate Spurs Quiz Book’. Covering the 1980′s through to the current day with a variety of themed questions and a focus on a number of his favourite players, he told us of his immense inspiration and satisfaction to write about his boyhood club. ‘I love writing about Spurs and felt I learnt that a lot more by writing a book on them and doing a lot of research in to the clubs history. I am a huge fan and current season ticket holder at the Lane and have been for years. Tottenham has always played a big part in my life’.

For all those who may be new to this feature, every week from now on we’ll be asking you to help us out with selecting the Tottenham Hotspur Premier League XI. It was the turn of the right backs last week as Dean Austin, Stephen Carr, Pascal Chimbonda, Vedran Corluka and Kyle Walker battled it out for your votes.

Needless to say, you voted and a majority ensured that with 55% of the total vote, Hugo Lloris enters the Spurs Premier League XI between the posts. Valiant mention should go to Kyle Walker who came second with 28% of the vote ahead of Vedran Corluka (8%).

Next up, it’s the turn of the other full back, the left back slot. Over the years we’ve struggled for a regular within this position, but we think we’ve found the best five candidates for the job, ready for you to decide. Here’s the candidates:

Youtuber PV2+ Adventures captured this unique view of White Hart Lane back in September, during Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in the League Cup. Reports have suggested that an arrest was made during a similar filming over the Emirates Stadium.

 

‘It is better to fail aiming high that to succeed aiming low’, the great Bill Nicholson once said. But you’ll know that already, for it’s a message synonymous with the Tottenham sides of past days, often falling slightly short but doing so with endeavour and courage. Sadly those qualities have been in short supply over the last two and a half years; the match-saving turns of Gareth Bale often masked team inadequacies even in AVB’s first season lest we not forget.

We’ve allowed ourselves to be rolled over and tickled on our undercarriage with unbearable frequency, glutton to humiliation. Saturday’s opponents, Manchester City have been one such side that has delighted in reaping misery upon Spurs fans in recent times. Last season’s respective 6-0 and 5-1 batterings provided little entertainment and ultimate frustration, with little of positive note to take away from the stadium bar a bitter taste in the mouth. They signalled the clubs demotion to Europa League contenders from Champions League dreamers.

For all those who may have missed last weeks article, every week from now on we’ll be asking you to help us out with selecting the Tottenham Hotspur Premier League XI. It was the turn of the goalkeepers last week as Erik Thorstvedt, Ian Walker, Paul Robinson, Heurelho Gomes and Hugo Lloris battled it out for your votes.

Needless to say, you voted and a clear majority ensured that with over 70% of the total vote, Hugo Lloris enters the Spurs Premier League XI between the posts. Valiant mentions should go to Paul Robinson (15%) and Erik Thorstvedt (10%) who were voted second and third choice by you.

Next up, it’s the turn of the full backs and in particular, the right back slot. Over the years we’ve had a number of players try to take on the role, with varying success recorded but who stands out as the greatest of them all to you? Here’s the candidates:

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? That’s what many fans will be wondering regarding Spurs’ season ticket price setting after it was announced that the club are yet again the second most expensive supporting experience for a second consecutive season.

According to BBC Sport’s Price of Football Survey, the cheapest season ticket at White Hart Lane, priced at £765, is more expensive than eighteen other clubs in the league with only Arsenal more costly (£1,014). As well as this, the most expensive season ticket at £1,895 is also the second most expensive in the league, again behind our North London neighbours. To put this into greater context, you could purchase two Manchester City season tickets for the price of just one of Spurs’ cheapest season ticket package offerings.
