The Magnificent Spurs

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Just how good were Spurs, the 1st team for 64 years, to win both the league and F.A.cup,
and they were on to do it, the season after as well, if in March against Ipswich they didn’t mess it up,
they had a forward line that scored 109 goals in just 49 competetive games.
Bobby Smith, Les Allen, Cliff Jones, John White and Terry Dyson were their names.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They were led by Bill Nicholson, a one club man who joined them in the season of 1936/37
and sixty odd years, he would be associated with Spurs, man and boy, it was a match that was made in heaven
out of that magnificent side only keeper Brown and Henry failed to score
and they won 31 out of 42 league games, 7 times defeated, 64 times they managed to draw.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They were captained by the great Danny Blanchflower alongside Dave Mckay, Norman and Baker made up that team
and in 1963 they became the 1st British side to win a cup in Europe to fulfill their European dream
They won their 1st 11 games that season and it would have been more but they failed to put Man City away
They were without doubt the entertainers, and no wonder fans would flock to watch the Cockerels play

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In four seasons they weren’t out of the top three and won 2 FA cups and 1 cup winners cup
Though it wasn’t just their honours, it was their style and carisma that made the football connoisseurs all sit up
so was it any wonder that glory glory hallelujah, rang out as the Spurs went proudly marching on
probably never a more appropriate song for that magnificent 11 and 1st double winners of the century in 1961.
