VIDEO 31 Bale goals & Spurs history today, Chivers, Sherwood, Villa, Henry

8:30 am
Morning Spurs fans we'll start the day with a look at pieces of our history as it happened today and we'll conclude with a video of Gareth Bale's 31 goal season in 2012/13.

First up let's wish a Happy 43rd Birthday to our former Spurs central defender David Tuttle who blessed our ranks between 1989 and 1994.

Double-winner Ron Henry, who sadly passed away in Dec (RIP), scored his only goal for us today in 1965 v Man U (h) 1-0. He collected the Football League First Division - 1961, FA Cup – 1961, 1962 and the European Cup Winners Cup – 1963 with us.

The double back then was considered impossible and in 1963 helped us become the first British side to win a major European trophy. As ever we have to show sides how it's done so they can follow in our footsteps.

In 1974 Big Chiv, that's Martin Chivers if you were unaware, smashed a hat trick against Birmingham City at White Hart Lane in a 4-2 win with Mike Dillon scoring his one and only goal for the club.

Martin Chivers scores a hat trick

In 1982 we beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-1 at White Hart Lane where Argentinean import Ricky Villa scored a hat trick to celebrate the opening of the West Stand by Sir Stanley Rous.

Argentinean pair Ricky Villa and Osvaldo Ardiles

In 1999 against Coventry City at White Hart Lane midfielder Tim Sherwood made his Spurs debut in a 0-0 draw.

In 2012 against Liverpool at Anfield Tottenham recorded the clubs 200th draw in the Premier League in a goalless game.

Also in the same game in 2012 against Liverpool at Anfield former star Gareth Bale made the 100th Premier League appearance of his career.

History maker Burkinshaw appointed manager

8:30 pm
On this day in 1976 Keith Burkinshaw was appointed Tottenham Hotspur manager to replace Terry Neill who had recently resigned.

Two years later on 10th July 1978 Burkinshaw shocked the football world, made front page headlines and the lead story on the 6 o'clock news when he signed 2 World Cup winners.

Ardiles Villa Lamela

One little guy had played in the Final as Argentina beat Holland in extra-time on home soil, Osvaldo Ardiles (Huracán) and his squad member friend Ricardo Villa (Racing Club). Burkinshaw signed Ardiles in a 20 minute meeting and Ossie said he had a mate, could he come too.

We all know what happened after that, both became firm crowd favourites, both helped us lift trophies. It's not a day any Spurs fan around at the time will forget.

It wasn't like today, there was no Internet giving minute by minute updates, there was no press speculation, there were no stories of Spurs chasing any signings, it was simply a bolt from the blue and a rather pleasant one. True sensational news not the sensational rubbish that everyone already knows about today.

Erik Lamela is trying to follow some illustrious footsteps, he has the talent and a fellow Argentinian as manager. He has trained with River Plate as impressed Spurs who sent a medic and kept an eye on him. Now he is into pre-season and will be fit enough to show what he can do.

Everything is in place for him, it's up to him now, all the noises are positive, all we need is the product and a new Argentinian hero will be born.
