10 – Joy and Pain – Most Haunted – Martin Peters MBE

As an elusive midfield playmaker, Martin ‘The Ghost’ Peters was accustomed to spooking defences up and down the country. Today he still walks the corridors of White Hart Lane…

You were signed for a British record fee of £200,000. Did that put extra pressure on?
Martin Peters: “The price tag didn’t really have much of an effect on me, because you didn’t take much notice of that sort of thing, you just got on with playing. People laugh now, but then, it was a lot of money. It was more difficult that Jimmy Greaves had gone to West Ham as part of the deal. He was one of the greatest goalscorers Spurs ever had - if not the greatest English goalscorer ever. It took people a while to warm to me. In my first game, I scored after four minutes, but Jimmy got two for West Ham and they scored five!”

Martin Peters MBE is featured in the ‘Joy and Pain’ section of the Opus.

With 300,000 words and 1,500 photographs, the Opus is the ultimate piece of Tottenham Hotspur memorabilia.
