Taking a break from from all that very serious stuff its time for the commercials but before you rush outside to make the tea lets have a look at what the club and its players have got up to over the years in another set of adverts and related commercial activities.
And there are a couple of ads that got banned !
No such trouble however for Harry Kane at the top of the page and his Fire Starter ads.
Gareth Bale however and The advertising watchdog in the UK banned a multimillion-pound star-studded campaign from Lucozade for claiming that it hydrates better than water. Complainants, including the Natural Hydration Council, argued that the claim "hydrates and fuels you better than water" was a breach of the UK advertising code.
Above left and the players room at WHL with its new roof. Right - Paulhinho found himself in trouble when it was discovered his co-star usually worked in adult entertainment!!
Left - A young Jimmy Greaves here seen opening a shop. This arrived in the inbox after I mentioned Jimmy was clearly a busy lad as he was also involved in a removals business based in Upminister at one time.
There are photos of him wearing flat cap and overalls driving the lorry, but they currently remain elusive, but still looking.
Jimmy also had an interest in a travel agents in Holborn which retained his name long after he no longer had a stake in the business. It was still there a few years back. I’ve been told he also had a sports shop in Chingford possibly during the seventies, but haven’t tracked a reference to it as yet.
Above - Martin Peters sometime in the late sixties I believe and he ran Soccer Schools at various holiday camps during the summer.
Feel a little guilty above Gareth so above left a moody feel as he promotes Adidss in 2016 and to the right a happier mood as he seems to be about to get a free car.
Left - The 1980's when you didn't waste material on shorts.
Below and this ad was used to launch the brand new Premiership competition. later to become the PL.
Below - the changing face of Umbro. Its the sixties and as you can see these strips were also the 'choice of champions including the unforgettable Spurs of 1960/61.'
A more traditional footy ad and finally Ray Clemence liked his kit so much he wore it on Sundays as well.
We cant have an ad break with out the club shop and this time we find this kit for the kids from 1981.
Below right - Steve Perryman opens another sports sport carrying his name - nice to see the champagne -I expect he could afford it as he had a regular column in the Evening Standard.
And we cant have a break with someones boots appearing and this time its the turn of Harry Winks and his Union Jacks.
If you have any Spurs related ads or other commercial ventures get in touch. OK you can put the kettle on now.
