Throughout each season I seem to collect a number of images and bits that don't seem to fit into other articles and they are then gathered up along with those already laying in the files into these little 'collectives' for your perusal over coffee. These sometimes attract more feedback than the articles that take effort, maybe there is a message there. Many of these pics, and much more, arrive via you the reader so a massive thanks to you and more power to your send button, keep them coming. Enjoy.
One such arrival was this wonderful bike, no idea of its heritage. I'm assuming its not a new picture, but you never know.
Above - Jimmy Greaves appeared in the Royal Mail stamp set to mark the FA being 150, in 2013. It covered eleven of the best British players and Greaves was included alongside Dave Mackay.
Left - Maybe not so much a boob as a curio next. The club wore this shirt badge during the first part of their European campaign that season.
A number of newspaper articles of the time refer to UEFA as EUFA and other clubs also followed suit.
Throughout the season we ran a number of great stories featuring Spurs from the vaults of various newspapers. Below left and a turnstile operator does hard labour! The Islington Gazette ran this story in January 1911. The game ended 1-1 Tull scoring.
An unused item (above right) from the ever popular Ad break series finds Ledley King and Les Ferdinand doing a promotion photo shoot for vodaphone. I may well be wrong but that looks like the National Gallery so that would put them in Trafalgar Square.
I have used this pic before of Dave Mackay in his Hearts days, but only recently discovered it had been used as a cover for a chocolate bar. Center - We have featured various programmes in the past. This one is a slight cheat - In 1926 WHL hosted the FA Cup semi-final between Swansea and Bolton. Right - If this chap had turned up earlier he would I suspect have been included in one of the Tottenham Toys specials.
In the past we have had several looks at Spurs in the movies and on telly. Another late arrival that wasn't included was Harry and Jamie Redknapp on a quiz show. Maybe you know which ?
Oh and in those I did feature Alan Sugar popping up in Doctor Who, but I'm told I didn't include his Apprentice programme, that's enough to get you fired I reckon.
Some time back as a midweek diversion as we waited till the early hours for kick off I did a piece on chrome badges. Foolishly saying I thought it wasn't as active as it had been. My in-box quickly went into over flow. I'm delighted its still flourishing and have enough badges now to fill every lapel I can muster.
