Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
Good morning ladies and gentlemen!
I have been aware of the 'Harry Hotspur' website but not really taken a jaunt over there. Being an uneventful Wednesday in the office I thought I'd have a butchers and saw these quotes, made the spine tingle and the old chest puff out...I'm sure most of you know them by heart but ahead of the final on Sunday doesn't hurt to remember the pride....Enjoy!
"White Hart Lane was always a place where I felt I belonged." David Ginola
"I would run through brick walls for Spurs." Graham Roberts
"Even now, when I go over to my mother'S house and dig out the old tracksuit tops I wore, it makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I like to think i am part of a special family. I am no longer connected with the club on a daily basis, but i'm delighted with every win and sad about every defeat." Steve Perryman
"Any player coming to Spurs, whether he's a big signing or just a ground staff boy, must be dedicated to the game and to the club. He must never be satisfied with his last performance, and he must hate losing." Bill Nicholson
"Bill did so much for his beloved Spurs that we must never let his legacy fade. He must be our inspiration as we strive to ensure that a new era dawns here at White Hart Lane." Daniel Levy
""I earned the right to be in the team and fought every game to be in it." Graham Roberts
"The worst thing Spurs ever did was get rid of Keith Burkinshaw. They never replaced him." Graham Roberts
"The biggest regret of my whole football career was leaving White Hart Lane in 1970.....my interest in football weakened after that. I was heartbroken" Jimmy Greaves
"Always had a bit of time, make a little bit of space, look up, bang. And you know he could put it on a postage stamp from 40 yards. Mmmmmmmmm...." Ron Manager aka Paul Whitehouse, Spurs fan on Glenn Hoddle
"The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It's nothing of the kind. The game is about glory. It's about doing things in style, with a flourish, about going out and beating the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom." Danny Blanchflower
"Man in the raincoat's blue & white army." Spurs fans unable to use George Graham's name, 1999.
Good post Big G.........Its a shame Graham Roberts seems to be shunned amongst the eilte down at WHL......Id like to see him given a chance to work with some of our players.
The Blanchflower quote should be written above every players tunnel at every ground in the land!

Morning Essex, Roberts is shunned because he speaks his mind. He knows everything thats wrong about Spurs and is vocal about it. I love listening to him on the radio, he says what I seem to be thinking. Top man and balls of granite.
