The Art of Tottenham - 12
The Art of Tottenham revealed where we uncover how the artists have portrayed Spurs over the years. This series seems very popular and thanks again to those of you who took time to send notes and images. Like this chap.
I was asked why I hadn't used him? Simple he is new to me but certainly is very welcome.
If you have any info on artists or where they first appeared always good to hear from you.
League Cup Tales - Martin Chivers
The first game Martin Chivers played at Wembley stadium was the 1971 League Cup final. He would score both goals as Spurs would win the trophy for the first time. He described scoring those two goals as a schoolboy’s dream. The first came after a Jimmy Neighbour shot was pushed into his path by the goalie and he slid it home.
Connections - Germany 6
This article recalls the first encounters between the two countries which all have Spurs connections and a few brief links, late night partying and a German flying ace.
The first international game played at White Hart Lane occurred when the FA invited a team from Germany to visit England for two games in the autumn of 1901.
The Lane - 13
The next chapter in our tribute to White Hart Lane and this time around there is the European game that didn't happen, several record crowds. An own goal we didn't want to see and goals galore with various hat tricks. A massive milestone from the non-league days as well as brothers and clowns.
The Gallery - Ledley King
The Gallery where we collect some images around one subject, this time we feature the King of Tottenham, Ledley King.
In a career tainted with injury he still managed to score fifteen times in 321 games.
A Trivial Matter - Hat Tricks
A quick read-bite looking at some of the hat tricks Spurs have scored over the years in competitive matches.
Currently Harry Kane sits joint 4th in our all time hat trick chart.
The leader is unsurprisingly Jimmy Greaves, with 15, George Hunt and Bobby Smith both have 12 while Harry has 10, along with Cliff Jones and Johnny Morrison.
After the recent articles I was asked if I had anymore on programmes. A rummage through the archive and I came up with this set of images which I hope your enjoy and will help pass the time as we await another all-nighter game.
The one think they all have in common is that they are quite rare and therefore should be new to you.
Hotspur Towers - Max Seeburg
Max Seeburg would become Tottenham’s first overseas player as well as the first European to play for a professional club in this country,
Max was the first German to play for Spurs but he was hardly an international transfer swoop. Having been born in Leipzeg in 1884 his family moved to London when he was just two years old, where his father ran a fur shop close by Tower Bridge.
Every Picture - Set 30
Every Picture, where we attempt to find some images that haven't been splattered across the internet, some old some new, all worth another look. This time around we go from last week and travel back a hundred years. With on and off duty pictures and a few that might surprise you.
We start with Mr. Gomes taking a breather.
The Portrait Gallery
The Portrait Gallery where we feature some artist impressions of Spurs players along with a photograph to jog the memory where needed so you can decide just how close the creator came.
This top chap however needs no such accompaniment it is of course Bill
Connections - Germany 5
This time we turn our attention to our meetings with Bayer Leverkusen and 1FC Kaiserslautern in European competition. Starting with Leverkusen who we have met twice, our first clash being in the UEFA Cup 2006/7. At that time you only met other sides once during the group stage and our game fell away in the November, the third of our four games.
Taking a moment away from all the serious news we pause for another peak into the world of advertising and how its interacted with Spurs over the years. We start this group with another from Gary Lineker's Walker crisp career.
This time he teams up with old pal Paul Gascoigne.
Another midweek sidestep to ease the gap between games and a few more magazines that have featured the Tottenham boys in various forms. This time we start with Dele and friend on 442 magazine.
This time around we will be examining how the club has reported itself in various guises in print.
Next however is former manager Gerry Francis on Look-in a TV publication for kids. Not a great likeness.
