Gladys tells me the talk of Hotspur Way since the new boys arrived has mostly centred around one player. Davinson Sanchez.

The Colombian began to swiftly look at home in the England; certainly did enough to warrant Mauricio Pochettino to give the boy 5 Premier League starts as well making the starting XI for both of Tottenham’s Champions League matches.

The 21 year old lad (who appears not to need to cheat/practise embarrassing handshakes/play Rock, Paper, Scissors etc…) has been a smash hit in training and already being tipped to be in the same class as footballing household names Franco Baresi and and Franz Beckanbauer.

These are extraordinary flattering comparisons. The Italian central defender spent his entire 20-year career with Serie A club A.C. Milan. The German genius was not just known for being completely reliable, but for being a most polished footballer.

We’ve had snippets from Glad in the past, I can certainly recall a conversation where the ill-fated Clinton Cards had been on the receiving end of Poch’s praise – but that particular wind up toy could buy a game with us. Sanchez has not required a ‘behind the scenes’ campaign of nurturing.

Of course, the boy Davinson cost around about four times the money, which ought to explain a lot more and reassuringly it does.

The feeling at Spurs is that this Ajax pedigree looks to have been a very sound long term investment.


The ‘Find A Spurs Star’ quiz on the last blog proved fiendishly difficult. Good.

Although this one was cracked 👇

Eiderdown.

Tom Good.

Ulrika Johnson

Eiður Guðjohnsen.

So can you crack the either of the remaining two?

A.

B.

      • 61SpursNut🌰 October 7, 2017 at 8:17 pm

        I fank yew!

        So what was the military truck thingy?

      • Harry Hotspur October 7, 2017 at 8:20 pm

        Jan de Bont directed Die Hard (and many others)

        Bert

        Lieve the EU

        In classical heraldry, vert is the name of the tincture roughly equivalent to the colour “green”

        A British Army one ton truck.

        Hen night.

        • AccringtonSpurs October 7, 2017 at 8:24 pm

          Incorrect.

          It’s Cameraman Carter-Vickers.

        • 61SpursNut🌰 October 7, 2017 at 8:25 pm

          One ton truck … tut

          btw, Jan de Bont was the cinematographer for Die Hard, not the director. As far as I can tell he only directed five films but was just a cinematographer until 1992.

          • AccringtonSpurs October 7, 2017 at 8:26 pm

            Just a cinematographer?

            They do all the work!

          • Harry Hotspur October 7, 2017 at 8:26 pm

            He was in the photo!

            • 61SpursNut🌰 October 7, 2017 at 8:28 pm

              Of that there can be no dispute.

              • 61SpursNut🌰 October 7, 2017 at 8:30 pm

      It’s not Bruce you should be looking at in that picture.

      • AccringtonSpurs October 7, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    • HORNpfft October 7, 2017 at 8:05 pm

      I know I am a legend but I might be to long in the tooth to be Captain, any more.

    • 89Spurs👁 October 7, 2017 at 8:10 pm

      We cracked it Ron, thanks for your help. Epic, but I didn’t know he had a brother called Fred.

  • 89Spurs👁 October 7, 2017 at 7:56 pm

    Final shot for puzzle is Steve Perryman.
    How’s that Harry.

    • Harry Hotspur October 7, 2017 at 7:58 pm

      You MUST have the explanations for any guesses!

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 7, 2017 at 8:01 pm

      • 89Spurs👁 October 7, 2017 at 8:04 pm

        Steve Coogan, dog track Perryvale and Man.

        • Harry Hotspur October 7, 2017 at 8:07 pm

          I’ll give you that – it was…

          Steve Carrell
          Perry Barr
          Man In Black

          = Steve Perryman.

    • Freund or Foe October 7, 2017 at 8:11 pm

  • Freund or Foe October 7, 2017 at 7:51 pm
