Off The Shelf

By Tottenham Hotspur Football Club
Off The Shelf will bring you even closer to our great Club, telling often untold stories from the current playing squad to the legends who went before them, the staff who keep everything ticking over behind the scenes and, of course, our fans - the heartbeat of Spurs.

Each podcast is dedicated to its subject, shining a light on their careers and the stories that define them. How did Ledley King feel when he was told he’d have to retire? How did Jenna Schillaci react when she was told she couldn’t play football as a young girl? How did Oliver Skipp climb through the ranks from Academy to first team? How did Molly Bartrip overcome serious health issues to reach the top of the women’s game? What was the one thing Heurelho Gomes wished for when he left home in Brazil to pursue his dream in Europe? You’ll hear those answers and more across the series…

And who better to present our podcast than one of our modern-day greats and fans' favourite, Michael Dawson! 'Daws' joined us in January, 2005 and spent nine years at the Club, making 324 appearances in all competitions for us until departing in the summer of 2014. Michael finally retired after 20 seasons as a professional for Nottingham Forest, Spurs and Hull City in August, 2021, and stepped straight into new roles as our Club Ambassador and as a panellist on Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports. A true leader, Daws radiates enthusiasm - his love for the Club shines through.
