Tottenham Hotspur will face Tranmere Rovers in the 3rd round of the FA Cup on Friday night. As is the norm, our club’s official Twitter handle decided to do a throwback post by pulling up a memorable moment from one of our earlier encounters with the club.
The handle tweeted about a match that took place on February 17th, 2002. Tottenham had beaten Tranmere 4-0 via goals from Christian Ziege and Gus Poyet, who had scored a brace. But the third goalscorer remained a mystery and the account urged our fellow supporters to guess the answer.
Any fan who has been following the club since then would probably know the answer to that: Edward Sheringham, fondly known as ‘Teddy’ by scores of Spurs faithful. And sure enough, many of them got it right.
But there were also a few hilarious responses and here, we have selected the best:
Tough one but I’m going with 8 year old Harry Kane . . . I believe he went by Baby Kane back then
