Mike Donovan is a freelance writer who has covered sport for close to 40 years. He has won two British Sportswriter of the Year awards, worked for the ground-breaking Today newspaper and contributes to a variety of national dailies and magazines. He collaborated with Darren Anderton on the Tottenham and England World Cup footballer's autobiography Takenote! Twice a Sports Editor, he has also been a boxing and tennis correspondent, while also writing on many Olympic sports. He has covered Wimbledon for more than 20 years, contributing to national newspapers and the Championships' official website. But football has always been his first sporting love. Spurs in particular, ever since his dad first took him to White Hart Lane in November 1961, and he saw the Lilywhites beaten 2-1 by Leicester City, fresh from winning the Double the previous season.
Tottenham Hotspur is a club founded in 1882 on romance, taking its name from a legendary historical figure immortalised by Shakespeare, a club with a tradition of panache and style. Spurs' Greatest Games reflects these hallmarks through 50 of their finest matches: from the first FA Cup success to the Double and European Cup Winners' Cup triumphs.
