Welcome to the new set of 'Every picture tells a story' where we look out some Spurs related pictures from over the years which deserve another airing. So hopefully these will either be new to you or ones that you haven't seen for a while. This set ranges from last year to a hundred years ago.
With a little trivia thrown in.
Its back to '91 and with Paul Gascoigne and Gary Lineker being presented 'mini' sized FA Cups for their services to Spurs. With Alan Sugar, Terry Venables and Tony Berry (Director). What was the joke ?
At the end of the 1921 Cup Final Jack Kirwan grabbed the match ball and kept it till he died.
A certain Mr Pochettino in his playing days is up next.
Peter McWilliam the manager in the 20's said 'belting the ball with an anywhere will do mentality has no place in the Tottenham way of doing things.'
Did you know - Ron Henry wore the same pair of boots in both the 1961 and 1962 Cup Finals?
2001 and Rebrov lands on top of the advertising hoardings at Charlton. Its the FA Cup 4th Round but Sergei has the last laugh as he scores in the 4-2 win.
Below left - December '68 and the players clear broken glass from the pitch after a bottle has been thrown in the Manchester City game which we drew 1-1.
Above right and its tea time at Cheshunt training ground. Ernie Walley Bobby Smith Maurice Norman Peter Baker Johnny Brooks Tommy Harmer and Alfie Stokes lead the charge while groundsman Don Coulston (who was an ex-Northfleet nursery boy) pours.
Left - we go back to January 1914 and the game at Manchester City. Goalie John 'Tiny' Joyce removes a home teams mascot from his netting.
Gerry Francis said ' in most clubs winning is what its all about and people are happy with that but at Spurs you have to win with style as well.'
Ossie Ardiles said 'I go for beauty if you left it up to me I would play with a goalkeeper and ten front players. '
Below - You know that feeling when you get on the train home and someone else grabs the last seats! Dier and Eriksen from last year.
The gentlemen below could certainly tell a few stories about the Spurs. Taken I believe in 1921. On the left is Harold Goddard who played for the club in the 1880's he served the club working on the handbook and programmes for 35 years. Next to him is William Mason a teammate of Harold and later club sectary.
Sitting is John Over the man who laid out White Hart Lane when we moved in, in 1899. Besides him is his son William who worked with him and later took over the duties when John retired.
Then its Billy Hartson one of the founders, a first teamer for ten years and had excellent skills he worked as a steward in the press room into his 70's.
Below left its 1966 and Terry Venables on his first day as a Spurs player.
on the right its November 1987 and its Terry again on his first day as manager. Here with his assistant Allan Harris.
Ron Burgess (below) Tottenham captain, and Welsh international and the man Bill Nicholson said was the best man he played alongside here he goes through his paces in a series of teaching photos
As we started with Ossie Ardiles (top) we end with his pal Ricki Villa here playing for England.
Yes you read that right, here Ricki turns out at the Bobby Robson testimonial game. Which explains why George Best is in an Ipswich shirt.
