Talking Tottenham - 9th Ad Break
We interrupt your reading to bring you this important message from our sponsors. The Ad break returns with another look at how the club and the players have interacted with the commercial world over the years.
Starting with Harry Kane and here we find him on a photo-shoot for FS magazine.
Not so much an advert, but it certainly pleased the sponsors. Its 1987 and in the Cup Final half the Spurs players take to the field in shirts without the sponsors name. The resulting coverage caused the sponsors to get far more attention than it they had had Holsten on display. One rival brewer even made an ad referring to the disappearing wording.
Below left - 1991 and the PL is launched.
Right - We mentioned this ad before but for the first time we see Chris Waddle (right) in the famous pizza ad with the paper bag over the offending head.
Its July 1901 and Tottenham advertise for entries for their athletic meeting to be held at WHL.
Below Deli going 'a little zen' as he contemplates his boot.
Below left - Umbro and this time its 1967 and the Cup Winners .
Center an advert for Julian Hollands excellent book on the Double season.
Right - Live league football was a revolutionary idea when the first game featured Spurs V Forest.
Spurs however still selling tickets for the game.
Some of our adverts are missing - I've mentioned several that I haven't tracked down previously in this series. One was Pat Jennings dressed as an oil filter. Even Unipart don't have one!!
I can tell you that the text was an oil filter is like a goalkeeper the more it saves the better it is.
If you can help track down any of the commercial endeavours of our lads over the years or other Spurs related ads do contact me.
In meantime Gary Lineker and another Walkers crisps ad and this time it seems Paul Gascoigne is looking for a free meal.
Right - Last summer the boss in Time Square and Jan Vertonghen is looking over his shoulder from the billboard.
Below left - Boots again and this time from the programme in 1909.
While right - 1961 and Adidas boot up the first team.
Last not a Spurs ad but worth an inclusion.
