After the events and the debates of the last few days Talking Tottenham takes a few moments to relax and blend together a variety of pictures gathered from the files for your delight.
So take a moment to peruse I'm sure there will be something for everyone. With just a sprinkling of trivia.
Quote from Van der Vaart - “The nights we played in the Champions League, wow, they were something special. For me, that was my best year. You know, I was lucky because it was, in my opinion, maybe the best team I played with - Ledley, Luka, Scotty Parker, Adebayor, Defoe, Bale. We had an unbelievable squad and times I will never forget. I miss Tottenham every minute. Tottenham is still in my heart.”
When I was putting together '1882 and All That' this little gem came to my attention and deserves inclusion somewhere. Its actual taken from a lecture given that year on tomb inscriptions. This Hampshire man doesn't too broken up at his loss but at least she had a good name!
Quote Terry Venables (later Cup winning manager) "It was close to an impossible job to follow in the footsteps of that great Double side. That is the sort of team that comes along only once in a lifetime. But we did our best and managed to win the FA Cup in 1967. Bill set the benchmarks for all future Tottenham managers.”
I promised you some stamps this year and this is the Danny Blanchflower commemoration first day cover.
Below - it never made the Stars and Cars specials but this crystal car bonnet mascot is French from the 1920's
Former midfielder Vinny Samways on his old teammate.
I think Paul Miller was one of the main characters in terms of winding people up, and Graham Roberts. They were quite a fearsome double act, and took no prisoners. If there was a ball to be won, it didn’t matter who it was. Paul was good in the dressing room, and he was quite lethal, and it didn’t matter if it was a practice match on a Friday against the first team, or younger players. His view was: ‘You're big enough to be on this pitch, you’re going to be treated like a man,’ which was the right approach.'
Many thanks for the comments and items for future inclusions in these little assemblies. The serious stuff returns in a couple of days.
I will leave you will this booklet.
Below another gnome. Still haven't found the ones modeled to look like Alan Sugar and Jurgen Klinsmann but the search contiunes.
