Another round up of Tottenham related adverts and commercial activates for you to peruse before the kick off later tonight (tomorrow morning). And a glimpse of some trivia.
Looks like Gareth Bale has the world on his shoulders or is it just the marketing men?
Gareth and Dele (right) both working hard to promote BT Sport.
Former Chairman Alan Sugar Talking about his long series of injuries said “Darren Anderton has had so many x-rays he has now got radiation sickness.”
Possibly my favourite Sugar quote was when he uttered the words “I know more about herring than I do about football.”
The 60's and Typhoo Tea put football teams on their packets and if you sent in enough tops they sent you a poster. I well remember going through every packet in a local supermarket and much to the managers horror as before he could scream at us we demanded to know where the ones with Spurs were!
Left - Gary Lineker again with Walkers Crisps, as he is rescuing two piglets could it be Smokey Bacon flavour??
It wasn’t the Spurs fans that was guilty of misbehaviour in January 1934 as we won 5-1 at Villa Park. Joe Nichols our goalie was bombarded with empty beer bottles and fruit and the FA threatened them with ground closure.
Left - Double winning Bill Brown and the secret of his success is his string vest.
Grace (Darkie) Nicholson is reported as saying 'I accept Bill has two marriages. One to me, the other to Tottenham Hotspur in particular. Even when we are on holiday in Scarborough his mind is on the coming season. Sometimes I wonder if he should have a bed put in his office at White Hart Lane.'
I remember Dave Mackay's Tie shop in Seven Sisters Road. Pleased they are still going and now have joined the Lavender Hill Mob (center) and right his stamp of quality. Dave actually started in the tie business whilst he was still in Scotland and there are some pics out there somewhere.
Bill and Dave aside as we know footballers and male sartorial elegance have come a long way over the years to the current group right.
The 4-3 game at WBA the weekend before the Second World War was declared and the league cancelled. You may well remember that Ronnie Dix scored a hat trick that day for spurs. What you might not have known was that all three goals for the Baggies came from Eric Jones. During the war Eric quested for Spurs, scoring seven goals in 16 games.
Back to the 60's again and before social media the fans got their pictures of their heroes by post. Center Jimmy Greaves in the late 50's promoting Bovril and right this is from a promo produced by the Umbro factory in 67.
