Football Today

Sep 24, 2020

In 1972, Hunter Davies released a book that documented his experiences spending a whole season behind the scenes with Bill Nicholson’s Spurs.

Davies's book - The Glory Game - offers an eye-opening account of football in the 70s with a level of intimacy that gave the book a real edge as a piece of football history.

Nearly 50 years later, global mega-company Amazon are offering a comparative experience. But where Hunter Davies went in armed with a notepad and pencil, Amazon takes us behind-the-scenes with video cameras and microphones.

In this episode, we ask: what did we learn from All or Nothing, Amazon’s television docu-series about Spurs?


Jack Pitt-Brook (@JackPittBrooke) covers Tottenham and England for the Athletic and hosts the View from the Lane podcast.

Chris Miller (@WindyCOYS) is the host of the Extra Inch podcast 15 Minutes (With Flav And Windy) a podcast in which Flav and Windy devote 15 minutes to a random topic.
