On This Day In Spurs History: 15th July
1998 – On this day in 1998 we trounced Peterborough 6-1 in a pre-season friendly. The first goal was scored by a new signing and those who had travelled to London Road probably thought that he’d turn out to be a decent player for us.
His name? Paolo Tramezzani.
Spurs Quote Of The Day: 15th July
“There are very few people in football of whom nobody can find a bad word to say, but Gary is one of them, He is Captain Perfect. Anybody who has played under his leadership could not help but have learned something. Good habits rub off just like bad ones but there is nothing bad about Gary, and if I ever get the chance to become a captain, It will be Gary’s good example that I shall follow.” – Paul Gascoigne on Gary Mabbutt.
