Talking Tottenham - At Home
I know the season is over and you finally decided to get round to those jobs you have been putting off for the last nine months, like talk to the family. Then there is that list of jobs, one, fix new front door?
A little summer fun before the serious stuff kicks in. As usual I've slipped in some trivia to amaze your friends with (and fill the gaps).
But before you start here are a few ideas. These images have all been sent into from readers over the last year. Many thanks to them and to the wonderful people whose homes we are invading.
Next - Isn't it about time you sorted out the bathroom like you promised?
Then (below) A nice feature for the living room this occasional table with inlaid White Hart Lane image.
1960/61 wasn’t Cliff Jones first double - when he was captain of the Swansea Schools team they won both the Welsh and English Shields. At school he also won a medal for his work in the choir.
Ray Clemence on Hugo - Hugo has been outstanding all year, one of the top goalkeepers out there, captain of the team and makes vital saves at vital times and that gives the team the chance to go on and win the game. You will see any goalkeeper make a great save but the team might be 3-0 down and it won’t really matter. Hugo is a goalkeeper who makes that save when it’s 0-0 or when you are winning 1-0 or even losing 1-0, but make a great save that will enable the team to go on and get something."
He added: "What I love about great goalkeepers is that they make the job look easy, they always look in control, never look ruffled. Hugo certainly does that. His decision making is fantastic behind that back four."
I always say you can never have enough door stops.
Below A new clock would look nice in the kitchen. I couldn't notice the time is ten to two. Be sure to tell your Arsenal friends when they come round its a German Clock !
When Gary Stevens came on as a sub for England V Scotland in 1986 he replaced the Everton player - Gary Stevens.
In 2005 Tottenham started and finished a game with eleven full internationals on the field for the first time.
The game at Villa saw us use 13 players, 6 English, 2 Republic of Ireland and 1 each from South Korea, Canada, Finland, Poland and Morocco.
And never miss another appointment by leaving a note under this fridge magnet.
Peter Baker was an all-rounder he played tennis as a junior at Wimbledon as well as squash at county level. Peter however sometimes got too involved and once arriving home late yet again for Sunday lunch found his kit in the drive.
Always remember to clean up when your finished. Jimmy Greaves sweeps up at home here in 1970.
That gives you plenty of time to finish that cross-switching you have been working on and when its done tuck it behind those new cushions.
Dec 4th 1948 Bill Nicholson nets our 2,000th Football League goal in a 1-1 draw at Fulham.
I expect your friends will want to pop in and see the changes so make sure you leave a sign at the gate so they know its the right house.
Just time to hang that new wall mounted crest and unpack the tea towels.
Jimmy Greaves once said “I went to Oxford and got a blue. And if some *** had not jogged my elbow I would of got the pink and black as well“. Remembering the time he was dropped by ITV “I got myself a job at Sky TV. Don’t think Saint (his old broadcast partner) will fancy it. Putting up with all those dishes can be hard work”.
I hope you enjoyed that, I know people have different tastes its like Salt and Pepper ! Anyway when you have finished relax in the garden, you wont to miss that next week.
