Sing Up: Request

Posted on 14 June 2001  - 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).

From Danny Keene

My ideas for sing up Tottenham are

The new board has demonstrated their understanding of Spurs fans love of the club's history.

Therefore, the song that should be added (and played as the team runs out - just after Inspurations has finished) is MacNamara's Band.

This great old song was the tune that the great Spurs team's of the 60's and early 70's ran out to. Reputedly introduced at the suggestion of Danny Blanchflower.

All Spurs fans aged 35+ will remember this song if they visited the Lane in the 70's or before.

If you are unsure of this song, it is featured on the "Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur" CD which the club shop sells.

The club could do a lot worse than re-introduce this as the song that Spurs run out to at WHL. It would cost nothing but would show once again that the new board understands true Spurs fan's traditional values and add to the feelgood factor that the board is trying to create.
