From Jennings to Lloris, who have you forgotten?


From Jennings to Lloris, who have you forgotten?

It's a happy 71st birthday today to the best goalkeeper I have seen wearing the Spurs shirt and we have had a few damn good ones down the years.

For the youngsters a quick Wikipedia history lesson.

Jennings spent thirteen years at White Hart Lane, where he played in 472 league games for Spurs, and 591 in all competitions. He won the FA Cup in 1967, the League Cup in 1971 and 1973, and the UEFA Cup in 1972. He also scored once, in the 1967 Charity Shield, from his own area, kicking the ball from his hands and sending a large punt down the field that bounced over Manchester United goalkeeper Alex Stepney and into the net. In 1973 the Football Writers' Association named him as its footballer of the year. Three years later he won Professional Footballers Association version of the award – he was the first goalkeeper to receive this accolade, and to this date remains only one of two, along with Peter Shilton.

Well that list of players who have played for us in the league brings back a few memories and a few goalkeepers I had forgotten, but it does round things off nicely.

Pat Jennings was once voted above Gordon Banks as the best keeper in the world, Hugo Lloris is right up there with the best himself and a worthy man to follow in the footsteps of the great Pat Jennings.

The list does not include any Glenn Hoddle appearances in goal or any other outfield player!
