Glory, Glory Lane is the life-affirming history--including a momentous last season--of a world-famous football stadium, home to Tottenham Hotspur for 118 years. A Victorian structure turned wraparound 21st-century all-seater, it became a theater of dreams for supporters all attracted by teams which played the "Spurs way" to achieve glory. The Lane gave a stage to a conveyor belt of legends from Cameron to Alli via Nicholson, Blanchflower, Greaves, Hoddle, and Klinsmann. It provided unforgettable memories in unforgettable atmospheres--heart-lifting, heart-breaking, nerve-racking. Its story veers from founders obsessed by Harry Hotspur to Harry Kane via Harry Redknapp; through matches, personalities, ground developments, and threatened closure, all with first-hand accounts. It's hard to imagine how a new 750m stadium can ever replace the edifice which shut its gates for the last time after Spurs played Manchester United in May 2017, having created a daunting legacy.
