    who were your great entertainers?

    with the tag entertainer automatically comes the word'character'.....in MHO these fit the bill.....gazza,georgy best,rodney marsh,stan bowles,waddle,frank worthington.......individuals but with a flaw....greavsy was another.....but boy did they give me moments of pure awe!
    anybody else u can think of?

      tell you wot.....your pseudonym is very very appropiate for a spurs supporter....you had the peaks and the troughs haven't you?....did you choose your pseudo with tongue in cheek or with reality in mind.....lol!.....we have great memories tho' haven't we.......we saw giants.....and they can't take that away
      ....we have glory in our heads and on dark days we pull them out like postcards.....remember.and.reminisce.....and then put them away again....good luck my friend....

    • Hi Derek, thought I'd been suffering long enough, but 1948 was the year I was born and you was going to the Lane already.

      Guess that makes you about 71, am I right?

    • hi kentish maid.....yes too late i realised it was dumb ....but i was never reknowned for my common sense.......lol!

    • I reckon the guy down the road from you would squeeze in there, Derek--- Paolo Di Canio.

      • well i started at WHL in 1948....they were in the old 2nd division ,which they won and got promoted,playing plymouth argyle.....nicholson was a half back.....i missed a few years 1949-51 doing national service.....but i saw the double side 60-61....you had a job to get in....then in the 90's i moved to lincolnshire....prices and distance stop me going now....but you are right....spurs have always been noted for playing attacking football and ball skills.....yeh i remember tommy....he didn't get the loyalty he deserved....he was brilliant....but his face didn't fit....yes my my body is far away but my heart is trapped at WHL....di canio was superb too....it seems most of the artistes are foreigners now...how about you?....how long have been supporting the rollercaster team?r

    • Hi Derek, agree with those selections.
      How long you been going to WHL?
      Do you remember little Tommy Harmer? He could entertain with his ball juggling skills. Things which are taken for granted nowadays!
