The day Spurs scooped the world - on e-Hotspur

Posted on 10 July 2013  - 13:05

It was 35 years ago today – July 10, 1978 – that ‘Spurs scooped the world’.

Ossie and Ricky at the Lane, July 1978Back-page headline on the Express

That was the famous headline on the back page of the Daily Express on July 11, the day after club made two of the most significant signings of the modern era – Argentinian World Cup winners, Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa.

Keith Burkinshaw was the manager who guided the club back to the ‘glory, glory days’ and the man responsible for the arrival of Ossie and Ricky.

He paid a visit to our new Training Centre last week and, 35 years on, we asked for his recollections of that magnificent transfer coup.
