Sound off: Most memorable moment

Posted on 11 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).

Our last Sound Off question, <I>&lsquo&#59;what was your most memorable moment of last season?&rsquo&#59;</I> was, as always, well supported. <P class=MsoNormal>Here are a pick of the responses.<B><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></B> <IMG align=right border=1 src="/news/title_images/davies_action1.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Tim Bechervaise, Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire:</B> The most memorable moment of the campaign last season for me was seeing the large crop of young players coming through the ranks and showing what they are made of. To me, players who haven't played a senior match ever, and then for them to find themselves in the starting 11 against someone must be extremely nerve-wracking for them, but with those nerves they showed that injured players weren't missing by putting in performances that make us Spurs fans proud. It was a joy to watch and a highlight that will bring the glory days back to the Lane once again. <IMG align=left border=1 src="/news/title_images/ipstot2.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Andrew Colclough, Bexhill:</B> My biggest memory of this season is that money has truly taken over the Premier League. As a club we have never really experienced this truly bad effect on football. Of course I am talking about Sol Campbell. Tottenham, boy and man, he was Tottenham. When Mabbutt left, Sol was all we had left as someone who truly believed in our club. I can understand his wish for better things and believe me I don&rsquo&#59;t resent him for that. When the club you were brought up by, nurtured by and developed by, offer the best deal in Premiership History, and still turn it down... I can accept that. What I can't accept is carrying it on for weeks and weeks. Is he going to stay at Spurs or not? You were a hero Sol, but spoilt it by not being straight with us, the fans, and your club. As a passing gesture you could have at least been honest. That&rsquo&#59;s what hurts. You were offered the world where people loved you. I hope you are happy and get the same respect wherever you go. Just remember where you came from, at least keep Spurs in your heart even though you no longer believe in us. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Simon Cooke, Harlow:</B> For Tottenham, we had good youngsters coming into the side and we achieved some great performances, notably our home win with Liverpool and our quarter-final win against West Ham. But my best moment was the thrashing Arsenal took at Man United. 6-1.6-1.6-1.6-1.Cool. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Kevin Portsmouth, Andover:</B> Even though last season&rsquo&#59;s campaign wasn't the most successful, I think there was a lot to take from it. We have now started to build a good base of youngsters and we've got the man we wanted in Hoddle. I think the highlight of the season was probably the FA Cup win over West Ham. I thought we played extremely well and it provided a very exciting encounter. Roll on next season. I think the future is bright - it's all blue and white. <IMG align=right border=1 src="/news/title_images/semi2.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Paul Hutchens, Redruth:</B> I was at Old Trafford for the FA Cup semi-final and when we took the lead it was magnificent. At that exact point I genuinely thought that we were going to win the FA Cup. But the rest is history. When Glenn took over you could sense that the club was going places again. The win against Man United was superb and left me looking forwards to next season with more anticipation. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Philip Greaves, Maldon, Essex:</B> I think that the best moment of last season was seeing Tottenham beat West Ham 3-2 in the FA Cup quarter-final. Until that game West Ham fans thought that they were better than Tottenham. We proved that this wasn't the case and the manner in which we did it was very entertaining. We allowed them to get it back to 3-2 with about 10 minutes remaining just so we could entertain the crowd! After that game we felt as though we were going to win the FA cup, but something better happened and that was the arrival of Glenn 'the man' Hoddle! <IMG align=left border=1 src="/news/title_images/semi4.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Duncan Glover, Poole:</B> Glenn Hoddle taking over at Spurs. <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Jonathan Charlton, Skipton:</B> My most memorable moment had to be the day we appointed King Glenn as the new manager. It has been too long since he was at home and I remember the feeling when the story broke. Bet all Spurs fans can remember where they <P class=MsoNormal>were that day! <P class=MsoNormal><B>From Terry Williams, Pwllheli, Wales:</B> My most memorable moment of the last campaign was the youngsters like Simon Davies, Doherty, King, breaking into the first team. And, of course, beating Man United in our final game. <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
