Talking Tottenham - The Motor Show
On a lighter note and one of the articles that drew a fair amount of response was the previous set of 'cars and stars.' So after a quick rummage through the archive here is in fact a third collection of Spurs related 'motors' images.
Lets start your trip to the Tottenham Motor Show by kicking off in the bike Hall.
How about this little number for flipping around town?
Or for the fan who likes the open road maybe this bike is more to your taste.
Below left and for those of you who have a wilder streak. You have heard of the Hells Angels maybe this is the right choose for the Tottenham Angels.
Or right - For the family man, Here Ted Ditchburn takes his for a spin on holiday in the 1950's.
Below left - Glenn Hoddle gets under the hood for a quick tickle with the engine.
While to the right Ray Clemence checks he can fit everyone in to the family car.
Here we find Jimmy Seed our great forward from the 1920's showing off his vehicle from the period.
Below - Maybe something for those who have trouble finding somewhere to park, now park where you want.
A few trivia snippets for you - Hows this for a team talk - Once when he was out injured Alan Gilzean is reported as saying to the lads before a game "You'd better win this one lads I need the bonus. I've got a wife, two kids and a budgie to keep."
Our former Fulham manager Martin Jol said "Dembélé is probably the best player on the ball I've ever seen."
Car badges for the bumper or grill don't seem as popular as they were, but how about this for telling everyone who you follow.
Not Tottenham but a great quote. Brian Clough once said ”If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he’d have put grass up there.”
Spurs' Erik Thorstvedt was the first goalkeeper to come on as a substitute in the Premier League, replacing Ian Walker in August 1992. The 1992/93 season being the first where three substitutes were allowed, with one having to be a keeper.
Pat Jennings reflecting on his early days said in 1972 said about goalkeeping. "I wonder if you could live through those changes now. In recent years the job has become easier. Much more thought and work goes into defenses and therefore the keeper gets a lot more cover. Even though it cuts both ways. Occasionally the cover is so deep you cant see the ball at all. Then there it is - behind you. "
Jimmy Greaves right - another image form the 1970 World Cup rally he competed in and below
Ossie Ardiles and Ricki Villa pick up new cars when they arrive in 1978.
Former striker (and regular TV pundit) Eidur Gudjohnsen, then 17, came on for his father Arnór in Iceland's 3-0 friendly win against Estonia in Tallinn on 24 April 1996.
The first time that a father and son had featured as players in the same international match.
For the more environmentally friendly amongst you
