Spurs vs Stoke - back in time

Posted on 13 August 2015  - 13:29

John Pratt had a thing about Stoke.


The midfielder proudly sits 10th in our list of all-time appearance-makers with 415 in all competitions between 1969-1980.

He scored 49 goals in that time - five against Stoke.

Our 'Back in Time' shot captures John hitting a spectacular winner against Stoke back in December, 1979.

It was a cracker - but it's not even his favourite goal against Stoke!

"I scored two goals against Stoke in 1972, a header and a volley, but that was with the great Gordon Banks in goal for Stoke," John told us this week. "That was special against one of the great goalkeepers of all-time.

"I also remember another goal against Stoke - Glenn Hoddle's first for us on his debut back in 1976. That was a belter as well."
