Pat's best

Pat Jennings picks out our 1967 side as 'potentially the best' he played in at Spurs as he answers fans' questions in hotspur.

The legendary goalkeeper is in the hotseat for the official club magazine's popular 'View From...' Q&A feature and is quizzed on a host of subjects including his early career, Bill Nicholson, training methods, Cyril Knowles, George Best and his World Cup experiences.

Naturally though, a number of fans wanted to know what Pat thought was the best side he played in during his 13 years at Spurs. "I would have to pick out the 1967 FA Cup winning side as potentially the best," said Pat.

"We finished joint second in Division One that season, just four points behind Manchester United."

Pat also recalls his first cap for Northern Ireland alongside fellow debutant - a certain George Best.

"It was in 1964, in Swansea. In fact, Cliff Jones also played in that one," said Pat. "We won 3-2 and I was very impressed by George."

Thanks for all your questions for Pat - the response from fans was so impressive that we will certainly have to feature the great man again in the New Year because the questions literally poured in!
