Once Upon: Silkman

Posted on 6 June 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

I was a big fan of "Star Soccer" growing up in Jamaica during the 60's. The game and player that made me a Spurs fan was a championship game (I forget which one) against Aston Villa, when Martin Chivers (my all-time favorite Spurs player) scored twice in a 4-1 Spurs victory.
I recall the post-game celebration included the players all piling into a huge pool-spa, dousing each other with champagne and singing "Glory, Glory".

Other members of the team I remember were: Martin Peters, Pat Jennings and Allan Gilzean. I can't remember if Jimmy Greaves was still playing.

Much Love;
