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.

A home movie shot by former Spurs winger Cliff Jones, who Spurs bought for £35,000 in February 1958, with footage of the Tottenham team never seen before has come to light on You Tube.

Cliff Jones was a Welsh international, 59 caps 16 goals, who played for Spurs between 1958 and 1968. He played at the 1958 World Cup and was a key member of the Double Winners of 1960-61. With Spurs he also picked up the the 1962 and 1967 FA Cups plus the 1963 European Cup Winners Cup in becoming the first British side to win a major European trophy.

Cliff Jones, now 79, was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the National Football Museum, Manchester on 25th September 2013.

Spurs have a 100% European Record on this day

On this day we have played two European ties winning both of them scoring ten goals and only conceding one.

In 1973 we beat Grasshoppers Zurich (Switzerland) at White Hart Lane in a UEFA Cup First Round Second Leg tie 4-1. Only 18,105 fans turned up to see the victory which was only secured late on.

Having gone behind after 24 minutes to a Rudolf Elsener goal it wasn't until the 73rd minute that an own goal drew us level. However 3 goals in the space of 9 minutes sealed the 4-1 win. Captain Martin Peters put us ahead in the 79th minute, Welsh central defender Mike England made it 3-1 in the 84th and Peters struck again in the 88th minute to give us a comfortable lead to take to Switzerland. We won the leg over there even more emphatically 5-1.


In 1984 we played SC Braga (Portugal) again at White Hart Lane in the UEFA Cup First Round but this time a Second Leg tie running out 6-0 victors. We had won the away leg in Portugal 3-0.

This is our biggest win on this day ever, a 6-0 thrashing of Braga (Portugal) in the UEFA Cup First Round Second Leg tie at White Hart Lane watched by 22,478 fans. We had won the away led 3-0.
