Good morning.

I thought it might be nice to have an upbeat blog before we lose at Newcastle. Only kidding about the losing bit. But the mood has been a bit so-so for some while really. Nothing specific to this two bob blog, rather just the Interlull and such.

So scouring the Internet and all the recent stuff didn’t quite do it for me, but I was prompted to share this after seeing it turn up on Spurs Odyssey and this is quite simply a lovely bit of footage.

Perhaps we could solicit a few memories of the man and get ourselves all geared up for Sunday?Yes, I think we can.

Hoddle was a pivotal figure in my formative years as a young Tottingham fan. And watching this film brings it all back. You look at the state of the pitches and the state of the tackles and yet his feet danced with the ball. If he was playing today he would embarrass so many players who are routinely cooed over and insanely overvalued financially. Glenn was the real deal.

Did you see him play? Did you do his hair? Did you once let him your static caravan in West Runton? Talk to me…
