  1. Some Spurs legends on here…goal keeper Pat Jennings – a true gentlemen who then went to rivals Arsenal but never received grief from Spurs fans, great goal scorers such as Jimmy Greaves, Alan Gilzean and Martin Chivers, midfield dynamo Alan Mullery and then legendary defender ‘Nice One’ Cyril Knowles, also Joe Kinnear and Welsh International Mike England.

    Can remember fringe players like Phil Beal as well…and the unfortunately named John Pratt lol :-)…always a classy side Spurs.

  2. My first game down West Brom was an evening League cup game. My old man (who was / is a Wolves fan) took me because I was a Baggie.

    We sat right at the front of the Halford Lane stand. I was thrilled that Bobby Hope was playing on the left side that night and was right by me first half…almost touchable. Under the floodlights it was magical – the atmosphere was great – the Brummie Road in full cry..it was 0-0 with a couple of mins to go…we stepped out on to the cinder track at the side of the pitch to make our way to the exit. Just as we got to the exit Spurs had a free kick. It was crossed into the box, Martin Chivers rose above everyone and powered a header into the net…I was gutted…we kicked off and the ref blew for full time! We lost 1-0…welcome to the Albion…I was hooked. 🙂
