This is the story of a season in the life of one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs. But Tottenham Hotspur hold a unique position in that group, having won just two League Cups since the Premier League was formed and the modern football boom began.
Authors Alex Fynn and Martin Cloake follow the team through the 2022/23 season, another in which promise came to nothing, and ask why it is that Spurs continually fail to take full advantage of opportunities presented by the modern game. A game the club helped create.
Along the way in a season in which the fortunes of some of football’s biggest names – including Antonio Conte and Harry Kane – would prove pivotal, they place the club’s story in the context of the development of the world’s most successful sporting league, drawing on the views of some of the key figures in the tale.
An essential read for Spurs fans, this is also a look at what success means in today’s global game, and what it takes to achieve it. It is a hard-hitting but balanced analysis of the way Tottenham Hotspur has been run for the last 20 years, written by two people who have close knowledge of the club.
Still Dreaming follows on from 1996’s book Dream On – “A Football Classic” FourFourTwo.

The insightful Still Dreaming delivers a frank assessment of Enic and Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy in Spurs’ evolution. — Frank Dalleres, City AM
Recommended. On how last season at Tottenham unravelled, but also on the wider experience of being a fan and how we experience football in 2023. — Charlie Eccleshare, The Athletic
A fascinating read. Remarkable moments, so much in it. Brilliantly documented throughout. — Last Word on Spurs Podcast
27 years after the brilliant “Dream on”, the authors show they still have their fingers firmly on the Tottenham pulse, with the aptly named “Still dreaming”. Much have changed for the better in those years, but some things also remain frustratingly the same. The Spurs 22/23 season is dissected with great insight, and it perversely makes it an even more enjoyable read, seeing how the team is now playing under Postecoglou. — Erik Thorstvedt, Spurs and Norway International goalkeeper, 1988-1994
A wonderful book. I read it in one sitting. Highly recommended — Mike Leigh, Presenter of The Spurs Show Podcast
