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

When I was young I used to play for a Park Team in London, my stiking partner was a guy called Keith Osgood.

He used to score for fun, and with me alongside him, he used to make so many easy goals for me to score it was wonderful.

Someone spotted him and off he went to Spurs, and ended up as a midfielder in the early-mid 70's

I think he spent about 10 years there in total, mostly under Terry Neil I think,we even had Girlfreinds that were best freinds so we used to go out together a lot, he even came to my first wedding, then when I moved out of London we lost touch.

I know that he was transferred to Derby and tragically lost his Wife in childbirth, was on the front pageof the papers, he never recovered and despite Colin Addison the then manager of Derby saying he would give him every support, he let him go, to where I don't know, but he's out of football now.

I'd love to know what happened to him.

Do you remember him Mobi?

Gutted, great match for the first 63 minutes , Jenas cocked up some decent chances ,and one sitter,

then Liverpool destroyed us for the last half hour. They were pure class... :D

Still , early doors, only 11 off the lead... :o

We need to get 9 points from the next 4 games.

Pompey away

Villa home

West Ham home

Watfor home.

No easy games these days.

Can't we just concentrate on Europe ?

:D

Sorry Kerrs, can't agree with you on that at all. For the first hour we were excellent, restricting Liverpool to very little. It was only after JJ somehow turned a certain goal into the miss-of-the-season that we crumbled. Note: Great break and pass from Davids...!!!

The way our luck has been going the team all got their heads down and from then it was game over. It's a confidence thing. We should have gone 1-0 up and then 30 seconds later we're 1 down. It was a "here we go again" situation from the lads.

I'm not Davids biggest fan by any stretch, however I feel now that his experience will be vital in the coming weeks as we try to kick start the season. He can put his foot on the ball and dictate the pace of games.

We also need happy campers and therefore I would play Mido or Berby with Daffy up top and put Keano on the left for his trickery. I am genuinely concerned that we could lose Daffy in January if he doesn't get a decent run of games. Villa have sniffed and now they have the money. If we had to choose I'd rather see Keano go but better to keep both (obviously!).

Missing Aaron Lennon badly...

We had the Prague game here on Channel 7 last night, English commentary as well - Result!!

I thought we were excellent, dominated the game from start to finish but we are STILL lacking confidence in front of goal. How exactly did Mido miss that header at the end...???

Keano missed a couple of sitters as well but at least we're creating a bit. If we weren't creating then we really should be worried. Hopefully now we are safely into the group stages of the UEFA Cup we can get going in the Prem League.

Absolutely MASSIVE game against Portsmouth this weekend (live on Super Sunday). I know they had a decent start but if we are serious this term we should be winning these kind of games...!!!

King Ledley will be back as well.

Good Luck Boys!

Agreed , as a fellow Spurs fan , I can't wait to see the group stages. If Lennon,King,Berbatov,Defoe and Davids are fit , well........

Zokora looks better and better as well , also Chimbonda getting more runs in.

Now for Pompey........ :o

Played fairly well , jammy penalty decision... :o But things are looking up.

Berbatov stayed on for 74 minutes , him and Murphy were our star players. Lennon should be back soon. Things are looking up!

At least we are guarenteed a European run this season!
