In what can be described as one classy move this, Tottenham Hotspur have decided to move their legendary manager, Bill Nicholson’s ashes under the White Hart Lane pitch. What further followed was even more heartwarming. The club’s hierarchy decided to re-inter Bill’s and his wife Darkie’s caskets under the place where the new pitch would be formed.

Bill Nicholson is the most successful coach in the club’s history, having guided the Lilywhites to three FA Cups, two League Cups, one UEFA Cup and one First Division title.

Nicholson spent a successful tenure with Spurs as a player as well, winning the league in 1951 under Arthur Rowe. The former gaffer sadly passed away on October 23, 2004, and in his honour, the club had then decided to bury his, and his wife Darkie’s ashes under the White Hart Lane pitch so that his legacy goes on forever.

Now that the club are closing in towards their new stadium, the couple’s ashes were temporarily moved to another place as the demolition of the site was proposed. With that being done now and the work in full throttle, the club have announced they have placed the ashes below the area where the pitch will be laid. This was preceded by a private ceremony attended by the couple’s immediate family.

Bill’s daughter Jean is delighted that her father has “returned home,” and that her parents remain together.

“My sister Linda and I are so grateful for the respect and affection that everyone at the club continues to show towards our father”, said Nicholson’s daughter Jean, as quoted by the Tottenham official website.

“There is no more fitting memorial than for him to rest below the new pitch, and having Mum by his side makes it even more special.

“Dad’s dream was always for his beloved Spurs to be the best in the world and it is clear that this new stadium project is a giant step towards that aspiration. We are proud that Dad played a major role in developing the club’s history and that his contribution is being remembered in this way.

“We’re sure Dad would have enjoyed watching the current team play, in the way that he always advocated. The fact that the Spurs are taking him with them into the future means so much to us all.”

This is such a classy move by the club to honour a legend like Bill Nicholson. Well done!

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
