Tottenham Thread

Recommended Posts

I hope you don't mind an old timer reminsiscing. :D

The sight of a Spurs thread warmed the cockles of my worn out, ill used heart.

I first went to see my beloved Spurs play in 1954, at the rripe old age of 8. I used to live in East London - Ilford actually, and me and my mates would jump on a 144 bus ( I think it was 144?) from Gants Hill which took us round the N. Circular and thence to White heart Lane.

Use to go quite regularly up to the age of about 16, and then my visists slowed as work took precedence. Still made the big matches however, right up to the time I went overseas in 1968.

Back in the Uk in 1983, I was no longer in London, but still made the odd match from my home in Essex, but the last mnatch I attended was with my then Thai father-in-Law - can't remember the year, but we played Middlesborough - Gazza was playing for Boro -but got a good reception from the Tottenham faithfull. Spurs were rubbish, lost the match and the ground was half full. I was ashamed for Dad - his one and only Premiership game - ever.

Spurs used to be very popular with Thais - as the only live games that were shown here were the FA Cup Finals, and as they had such a good record, they had a lot of fans. There still are a number of Spurs fans dotted around amongst the older generation - but alas most have deserted them in favour of Manu, Liverpool, Chelsea etc.

So I have stuck with them for well over 50 years. Can anyone beat that record?

We had a good season last year, but I'm damned if I understand what's gone wrong this year. I thought we might be in for shout for 2nd or 3rd spot, butn ow I'm not sure. Seems like we're back amongst the also runs.

Anyone got any ideas on this? :o

Keep this thread going guys - its existence has really cheered me up. :D

Where abouts in Essex Mobi..?? I'm a Brentwood boy originally!

Congratulations on 50+ years as a loyal Spurs supporter. After all that time and punishment following the boys you still sound fairly sane...!!! :o

I don't get near to 50 years but me, my Dad, Grandad all have White & Blue blood. My grandad on my Mum's side of the family played for Spurs from 1936 till the end of the war. Signed the same day as a certain Billy Nicholson who was a 16 year old junior...!!!

Hi Backpack - that's a great story!

I lived in Basildon for about 15 years. Quite easy to drive round the M25 to Tottenham. Strangely enough, when I lived in Ilford, most of the kids supported West Ham, so I was in the minority. But those days were so different - I used to go with friends to watch Hammers when Spurs were playing away, and watched th greats Like Bobby Moore, Hurst etc. We even made the odd trip to Arsenal - but the games were so boooring...

Well, we may be long suffering supporters, but we had some great teams and great players, from the "double era" right through to Linekaer, Gazza, Ginola etc. A magic team - always have been, always will be..... except when George Graham and that Swiss idiot were in charge :D .....

Agree, the less said about George "Mr Arsenal" Graham the better!!

My first game was Spurs v Hull City in the FA Cup in 1981. I was 10 years old, watching the likes of Crooks, Archibald and Mr Spurs Steve Perryman (how we could do with another one like him!).

We played shockingly against ull until 10 mins from time when Gary Brook came on (remember him, the original "super sub") and we won 2-0.

Incidentally, my favourite Spurs legend of all time is Gary Mabbutt (except for Albert Page of course!). I even have the no.6 on my sons Spurs shirt!!!

Go Lillies!

Couldn't agree more , I was at the 99 league cup final and iit was a dreadful game, masterminded by the evil Gooner. Even after we won the atmosphere was totally flat and nothing like the previous cup wins. This season I think we'll gell eventually and finish about sixth.

We do seem to be missing Michael carrick though ..

COME ON YOU SPURS
