Every Picture is where we try and find a few images that you may not have seen for a while and are certainly worth another airing.
With this set falling on the anniversary of the clubs formation no real theme this time just a celebration of the club over the years.
Happy Birthday Spurs
We should start with the man who brought great glory to the club during a lifetime spent at Spurs. Bill NIcholson who was known for his eye for detail. Here he seems to be doing just that. On the training ground with the great Alan Gilzean.
Gilly scored a 133 goals for Spurs. Famous for his heading but we shouldn't forget he was an extremely talented footballer
To this day I cant see his picture without wanting to sing 'Gilzean, Gilzean, Born is the King of White Hart Lane.'
(To the tune of the carol Noel,Noel).
During the sixties the other half of Tottenham's G-Men was Jimmy Greaves. Many (who did not see him play) thought he was just a goal hanger. He did have the amazing knack of being where the ball was before it arrived.
He said he would rather play well for one minute and score than play well for 89 and not. There was much more to him than just tap ins. When he was on the ball his movement resembled a big cat hunting down its prey as he hunted down another goal.
Here he eases past the Arsenal defence to score at Arsenal.
This image arrived after I featured the 1984 UEFA Cup Final and the penalty shootout recently.
To the right we see Steve Archibald, another great Scottish forward, in that shootout.
On what is quite likely the most emotional night of my following the Tottenham.
I sat through the dvd a short while ago before writing about that game and thirty years later still found myself sitting on the edge of the chair holding my breath.
Back in the late summer of 1882 those Lamppost lads could possibly have imagined how the club would not just survive all these years but grow in to a name known through out the world.
Since then Tottenham have played in most parts of the globe and here we find Mousa Dembele here in 2013 playing against South China in the Barclays Asia Trophy.
I don't suppose apart from their wildest dreams those boys dream't that the team they were talking about forming would win the hearts of the nation and national acclaim just 19 years later.
With all the players that played for Tottenham since then I've selected Jack Jones for this collection.
he was the captain of that 1901 FA Cup winning side. Despite player manager John Cameron being in the team. John joined us in1897 and would stay with us till the summer of 1904.
On February 19th 1898 he played for Wales V Ireland. Thus becoming the very first Tottenham player to represent his country.
He played in a wide range of competitions and totaled 337 games for Spurs and scored sixteen times.
John (1) also taught football and cricket at Rugby Public School and later in South Africa.
Time for an action picture - Here we go back to the 1920's.
Cant tell you exactly what game this is but on the left is Jimmy Dimmock.
Tottenham are attacking the Park Lane End.
And the opposition is Blackburn Rovers.
Jimmy one of many locally born heroes over the years scored the winner in the 1921 FA Cup Final and was a great favourite with the Tottenham crowd.
Through the netting you can make out fans sitting on teh advertising hoardings on the East Side.
Another trophy winning captain is the great Ledley King. His career blighted by injury he is seen here with the League Cup in 2008.
One of the truly great defenders. At the end of his career he played when he shouldn't have done. In one of his last games he won great acclaim and the man of the match award. The following day the stats lovers cried but he did not make a tackle the whole game. That was the mark of the man, one of the finest readers of the game in modern times.
Yet another skipper. This time Steve Perryman.
Here he is in action at Valley Parade against Bradford City in 1970
He played more than 800 competitive matches for Tottenham.
He won the UEFA Cup, The FA Cup and League Cup. He was the Football Writers Player of the Year and played for England.
He is now Director of Football a Exeter.
I suppose I must include an image from the great Double winning season of 1960 / 61 as its the clubs birthday. The story of that magnificent year is currently being told on the blog page as the year unfolds.
As for that top picture. A certain Mauricio Roberto Pochettino. The man we believe will help write the next great chapter in the clubs history.
