On This Day In Spurs History: 28th May

1952 – Another end of season tour, but on this day in 1952, the result was anything but normal. Spurs were on a ten-match tour of North America, when they faced a Saskatchewan F.A. XI. By half-time Spurs were winning 14-0.

To make things a little easier for our hosts in the second half, we then swapped goalkeepers, with Ted Ditchburn between the sticks for the Canadians. The final result was an 18-1 win for Tottenham, with goals from Sid McClellan (9), Les Bennett (3), Len Duquemin (2), Dennis Uphill (2) and Chris Adams (2)

  1. Let’s hope the Davies and Huntelaar bits are true. Dzeko would be good though!!. I wonder if taking a punt on Roque Santa Cruz from Man City might not be a bad option

  2. When i think of Davies i think Anthony Gardener, why would we ever think about buying another defender with injurie problems. Woodgates probally gone, Kings doing well and with Dawson, Bassong and Kaboul not forgetting Corluka can play there also with Richards transfer looking a possible i really hope that this is not true the same goes for Bellamy, you have to admire his commitment on the pitch but all the bollocks that come off it is it really worth having him. Were in pretty good shape one of the best squads weve had in years. Dzeko or Huntelaar would be a great signing to replace Pav and if the rumor is right that Ashley Young will be a Spur soon the sky could be the limit.

    Redknapp could make the latter a world class player.

    Id have Peter Griffin over Davies ant day.

  3. Dzeko and Pavlyuchenko would be a world class striker combination… it would remind us of the days of Berba and Keano, except without them running away to find glory. Because the Glory is at the Lane!!!
