Harry Kane starts off this latest voyage into the childhood world surrounding Spurs. As he is measured for his avatar at EA Sports.
The readers have come up trumps again, no sooner had I launched the last trip to the toy store than the inbox bristled with some great pics, thanks all.
So mix in a little trivia and your mid week diversion awaits you.
Next up are these two chaps. Sorry I cant tell you if they are from a set or possibly giveaways with a product. Certainly from the late sixties one suspects.
Our 13-2 win over Crewe in the 1960 FA Cup was the biggest score line in the competition since 1894 when Preston beat Reading 18-0.
Right down on the hands and knees lads for a scoot around the carpet with these couple of beauties. These are new to me, I'm starting to think I had a deprived upbringing.
After that lorry from I would think the twenties its right up to date with the sporty model below.
When Steve Perryman played 173 consecutive games from Dec 1975 - Oct 1980 he also scored at least once in every season.
Gareth Bale may have been a superstar but from Aug 07- Sept 09 he made 24 appearances and Spurs failed to win any of those games. He finally came on as a sub during a 5-0 win over Burnley when the game was safe.
A different reader sent me this after the feature on Cyril Knowles recently.
It might not be our Cyril but worth including.
While below two knitted Lilywhites.
Its the seventies and Chad Valley produced a screen projector and lots of slide sets. This one features Martin Chivers and would have him explaining the art of the striker.
Tommy Clay scored 24 goals for Spurs - everyone a penalty.
Yes I know we featured Subetto before but I couldn't resist this image, looks like Spurs will defend the fireplace end in the first half.
While below Subetto figures are becoming quite an art form these days.
Oct 23rd — 1915 Centre half Charlie Rance played in goal for the first few minutes of the goal-less wartime game at Clapton Orient while Tiny Joyce changed his jersey due to a colour clash!
a quote from Pat Jennings and his early days. "Many children dream of sporting glory. I know I did when I used to go to Windsor Park, Belfast, to watch Northern Ireland play. I remember vividly one afternoon climbing on the lower rung of a floodlight pylon in torrential rain and watching a game against Scotland. I left the ground soaked to the skin, but I was too busy with my thoughts of one day being good enough to represent my country to bother about a minor detail like possible pneumonia."
The last amateur player to feature in the first team was Neil McNabb signed from Morton at 16 he was too young to sign professional forms.
Above playing cards, and I'm guessing the late eighties. On the left Ray Clemence with fellow England goalkeeper Peter Shilton. While on the right Gary Lineker seems to have combined the art of gurning, not what one expects from a King Gary. I did say coming up trumps!
Left - Nothing Tottenham, but came across this and thought it was worth adding to the collection. Its what the spare room is for.
