 Blanchflower leads with style

Spurs left it late to secure their first victory of the 1960/61 league campaign. With 5 minutes to go, Smith was brought down in the penalty area, but the referee played on. Allen latched on to the loose ball and slotted it home past keeper Dunlop.
Spurs extended their lead 2 minutes later as faultless White sent in a perfect cross for Smith to head home, giving the home side a deserved victory, which would have been sown up earlier, had it not been for Dunlop's heroics between the posts.
Captain Blanchflower was the star of the show, controlling the game magnificently, and together with White and Mackay, inspired most of the Spurs attacks.
Baker and Henry were solid in a game of defences.
The class shown by Spurs hinted at the success which was to come.

 Seasiders 'White'-washed

Spurs put in a determined performance against a Blackpool side which finished in mid-table last season, as they threatened to score with every attack.
Spurs had the game sewn up by half-time as Dyson scored in the 9th minute, with Medwin netting the second on 37 minutes.
White, however was the man behind most of Spurs' dangerous attacks as he displayed some devastating form. Dyson netted his second on 56 minutes.
Blanchflower and Mackay controlled the Blackpool forwards, with the exception of Stanley Matthews, who could still control the pace of Blackpool's game.
Mudie scored a late consolation goal for the hosts, who also missed a penalty on 30 minutes.

Spurs go marching on!

Blackburn lost their unbeaten home record to another dazzling Spurs performance, who were 3v0 after just 17 minutes.
Mackay and Smith came close before before Dyson and Allen set up Smith who drove the ball home from close range on 6 minutes.
Smith got his brace of goals 9 minutes later, heading home from a Mackay free kick.
The third was scored when Allen hammered in a Dyson pass. Blackburn were demoarlised by now.
Brown was in top form in the Spurs goal, saving from Macloed and Dobing, as Spurs moved the ball beautifully across the pitch, with Smith almost getting a fourth before half time.
Two minutes into the second half saw Blanchflower pass the ball out to Allen, whose square cross was flicked brilliantly into the net by Dyson, to give the Lilywhites a 4v0 lead.
Mackay's attempt at a fifth goal was cleared off the line.
I have no details of the Blackburn goal.

Smith smashes scoring record

A Bobby Smith hat-trick writes him into the record books as Tottenham's all time goalscoring record holder, with 141 goals, in just 5 years!
His first against a Blackpool team which played quite well, followed a cross from Blanchflower which evaded Dyson, but was met by Smith's head 15 yards from goal!
Brown was kept on his toes as the away side piled on the pressure, with saves from Jackie Mudie in particular.
Blackpool levelled after 34 minutes when 19 year old Lelie Lea equalised from close range.
Spurs pulled out the stops with 20 minutes remaining as Armfield cleared a Medwin goalbound effort off the line, only for Dyson to set up Smith for his second goal.
On 82 minutes, Medwin was again in the action as he tore through the Blackpool defence, allowing Smith to coolly trap the ball and pick his spot to set the new scoring record.

Spurs at their peak form!

Blanchflower and Mackay ran the show for Spurs as the team displayed pure brilliance in making Manchester United's star studded team look second rate.
White, Smith, Medwin and Dyson gave the United defence a severe grilling with Gregg in goal giving an international performance. Without him Spurs would have been 5v0 up at half time.
White intercepted a poor Setters pass to set up Smith for the first on 5 minutes.
Another immaculate White pass on 19 minutes found Allen, who dribbled round two oppenents to double the lead.
Spurs eased off a bit and Viollet took advantage of a moment of slackness by Norman to reduce the deficit.
White again becam provider on 65 minutes, supplying Allen with header, and a third Spurs goal.
Medwin laid on the ball for Smith's second goal 5 minutes from time, and complete the demolishing of the Manchester side, by 4v0.
Smith has now notched up 8 goals in 5 games as the Spurs go marching on.

Injury saves Spurs

Bolton were well on their way to a shock victory, until they were reduced to 10 men, following an injury to their brilliant right back, Banks.
McAdams gave the home side the lead on 3 minutes following a Brown save. Hill was in tremendous form for Bolton, and had several near misses. They hit the woodwork  and had shots going just over the bar - then that fateful injury which turned things in Spurs' favour.
5 minutes after the injury, White floated the ball over keeper Hopkinson to Allen for a magnificent equalizing header.
10 minutes from time White turned into a goalscorer himself, with a perfect hook on the turn, from Blanchflower's chip.
17 year old Frank Saul proved to be a fast thinker and fast mover at centre forward, in place of Smith.

Saul stars for Spurs

Arsenal had no counter to the free flowing Spurs in this north London derby, which was a fine advertisement for British football.
Youngster Frank Saul scored a right footed goal on 12 minutes, after Arsenal came close twice, to give the away team the lead.
Saul flicked on a Mackay throw in to let in Dyson, unmarked to give the Spurs a 2v0 lead. Spurs flittered away some more chances.
Herd brought the Gunners back into the game on 61 minutes with a shot which went in off the post as a result of a Clapton corner.
Ward levelled the scores with a magnificent 35 yard shot with 30 minutes left of the game.
Ball-player Blanchflower was on song to set up Allen to net the winner on 70 minutes, to break a First Division record of 7 straight wins at the beginning of a season.
Maurice Norman was yet again the defensive giant.

Disputed penalty helps Spurs

This was a game which Bolton did not deserve to lose - and Spurs can thank a dubious penalty to extend their winning run.
Bolton took a surprise lead when McAdams scored a fine goal after just 7 minutes.
Spurs slipped into gear with intricate passing on 24 minutes after endless raids on the Wanderers's goal. Jones, Blanchflower and Smith made it look simple as the latter clipped the ball home to equalise.
The suspect penalty, which infuriated the Bolton team, particularly keeper Hodgkinson, occurred when Dyson was pushed in the back during a Spurs attack. Blanchflower netted from the spot.
Bolton winger Birch was booked twice in quick succession, and the depressed visitors were finished off as Smith scored his second, 5 minutes from time.

Bobby Smith set the scene for this victory with a goal on 18 minutes.
Blanchflower, Mackay and White had another masterful game between them, turning defence into attack.
Leicester responded a few minutes later when Riley's shot beat Brown, having gone through a forest of Spurs legs!

Smith's second goal, his fourth in two games, was scored in the 54th minute. After this, Spurs never looked in any danger of relinquishing their lead. Leicester did not possess the slick teamwork of their opponents.

A 22 carat diamond performance

The boys sporting the blue cockerel on their shirts are clearly the best in the League!
Their first goal was a classic. Baker found Blanchflower, who stroked the ball back to Jones, flicked it past Winton, raced to the corner flag and centred. It was cleared to White who volleyed the ball into the net 1v0 with just 6 minutes gone.
On 14 minutes, White  flashed in a curling ball from the wing, Smith charged keeper Sims, and White's cross resulted in his second goal. 2v0.
Sims was to blame for the third Spurs goal as he failed to hold a Mackay hard drive, which allowed Smith to tap in a soft goal. 3v0.
On 30 minutes, White again had the ball. His chip found Dyson who made it 4v0 with a left footed shot.
A wonderful Dyson - White move placed Allen nicely to slot the ball home. 5v0.
Spurs slackened off somewhat, much to the annoyance of Manager Nicholson, and Villa hit back.
Winger MacEwan scored from close range, 5v1 and Hitchens headed home a McEwan cross, 5v2.
Mackay's goal with 5 minutes remaining was a memorable one. Left back Henry, fed Mackay, who passed it on to Allen, then Dyson took control as he feinted past the Villa defence to centre for the bawling Mackay to volley the ball into the net. 6v2.
Triumphant Tottenham march on.

Magic at Molineux

Wolves were dismal and Spurs could have won by many more.
Allen crossed from the by-line on 32 minutes for Jones to turn the ball home to take the lead.
With a minute to go in the first half, Blanchflower founf himself with the ball, some 30 yards from goal. He had no-one to pass to, so he moved forward, weered to the right and unleashed a tremendous drive into the far corner of the net. Spurs were 2v0 up.
The game was as good as over at half time. Allen converted a White cross for their third and Dyson made it 4v0.
Smith went close with two efforts, Dyson was unlucky with a further 3 drives, while Brown in the Spurs goal saved from Flowers to maintain a clean sheet.
Wolves manager Stan Cullis said "Spurs are the finest club team I've ever seen in the Football League. This present lot are better than the great side of ten years ago". The 1950 - 51 team were League Champions.

City end the run

The Tottenham record of invincibility was broken last night, despite a thrilling first half which earned the Spurs a standing ovation. This was in response to Spurs smashing in 25 goal bound efforts, against City's five.  Despite this, the game was goalless at half time.
Spurs led 1v0 following Smith's 74th minute header past Trautmann. This was the only blemish by the magnificent German keeper, who was in excellent form.
Despite the home side's protestations for handball, a City equaliser by Colbridge was allowed shortly after.
Colbridge almost set up an unlikely winner on 80 minutes as he laid on an open goal for Barlow, who wasted the opportunity as the ball went high over the bar.
Tottenham's 11 games of consecutive wins has come to an end..

Masterful Mackay

Spurs produced a man-to man, man-to-open space style of football, and had they been ruthless with it, would have run up a record score.
Brilliant work by Allen and Dyson laid on the ball for the immaculate White to net in the 7th minute and open the scoring.
12 minutes later, an unmarked Mackay let loose a shot cum centre which was deflected into the net by Forsts's McKinlay, to double the score.
Cliff Jones scored his first on 24 minutes, from a White pass, giving Spurs a comfortable 3v0 half time lead.
Masterful Mackay took possession of the ball, as the Forest team appeared completely wrong footed. He passed to the Welsh wizard, Jones, who nodded home a simple 4th Spurs goal.
Every Spurs player earned full marks for this magnificent Tottenham performance.

Spurs star in seven goal thriller.

Tyneside knows a fine football match when they see one - and this was one of them!
Again it was hard to pick out tremendous performances from the Spurs side, but Blanchflower and White stood above the rest.
Newcastle playedmore open football in the first half and were worthy of their 2v1 half time lead which saw 3 goals in 3 minutes!
Ivor Allchurch squared to Len White, who hammered the ball home after beating 3 men, in the 33rd minute.
Norman equalised with a header two minutes later when keeper Harvey failed to collect a cross from Dyson.
Seconds later, Henry scored for the opposition, from a Len White effort, following a Norman miskick.
John White shot home to equalise at 2v2 and on 58 minutes a disputed 'offside' goal by Cliff Jones gave Spurs a 3v2 advantage.
A cross from Hughes found the net for the home side as things became all square again at 3v3.
Then up popped Bobby Smith to give Spurs a remarkable 4v3 victory.

Shaky Spurs soldier on.

Cardiff buffetted shaky Spurs at White Hart Lane, as the Welshmen took the lead on 20 minutes.
Donnelly came down the middle to beat the advancing Brown, and Spurs looked unhappy.
Spurs came round 10 minutes from time as a Medwin throw in to Mackay was centred for Dyson to head home the equaliser.
Medwin crashed in his goal, making it 2v1 following brilliant footwork and a dazzling run by an ever improving Allen.
It was a contested penalty which turned the tide in this game.The ball hit Gammon's hand accidentally, but not according to referee Tuck. Blanchflower the neatly 'tucked' away the spot kick. 3v1.
Chances were missed by Smith and Allen.
The deficit was reduced 5 minutes from time when Donnelly flung himself headlong at a Tapscott cross to net a fine goal. 3v2.
White tantalised the Cardiff defence throughout the game, but the nervous Spurs fans were blowing for time before the end of the match!

Jones fights off injury scare

Nicholson risked playing Cliff Jones following an injury to the Welshman during a mid-week Inter-League match.
However, despite slowing him dow somewhat, the winger netted twice for Spurs.
Allen had given Spurs the lead before Jones scored his brace of goals. His first was a courageous effort and his second, making it 3v1, 15 minutes from time took the steam out of Fulham, who beginning to  take control of the game.
Allen scored a second and John White the last goal in an emphatic 5v1 victory.
Spurs have topped 50 goals in the League this season, and now stand 7 points clear at the top, their nearest rivals being Sheffield Wednesday, who they play next.

Wednesday woe!

Spurs lose to the steelmen of Sheffield and their record breaking run is at an end. Second placed Wednesday matched Spurs for craft, skill and stamina.
This titanic tussle was at stalemate until the end of the first half.
A bad back pass by Swan, who controlled Smith throughout, gave Allen an opening, but McLaren made the save of his life. The ball was then cleared upfield to Craig who whipped it in to Griffin, resulting in a strong effort beating keeper Brown, giving the home side a 1v0 lead.
Norman settled things for the Spurs with a powerful header from Mackay's free kick, a couple of minutes before half time, to level the scores.
Spurs controlled matters during the opening 10 minutes of the second half, but things changed.
Kay struck a 20 yarder which Brown held at the second attempt, and Finney almost netted the second Wednesday goal.
Then on 67 minutes, Don Megson ran down the wing and centred for Ellis to head it over Norman and hit it against an opponent's legs - Fantham was there to crash the ball home. 2v1.
Despite rallying work by Blanchflower and Mackay, Spurs failed to add to their single goal, and indeed committed several fouls.
This result was true to form. Wednesday completed a run of 9 successive home victories. Spurs have only won once in 24 matches at Hillsborough since 1910, drawn 4 and lost 19.

Tottenham triumph

Brave Albion's offside traps caught Spurs out no less than 15 times during the match. They held on for 21 minutes, until a nifty back heeler by Jones found Smith, who could have been adjudged offside, to hammer the ball home.
A truly typical Tottenham goal, doubled the advantage. A four man move allowed Allen to hoodwink Albion's defence and set up a certain goal for Smith, who suitably obliged by nodding home.
The third goal started from Spurs's penalty area and ended with Dyson pushing a through ball to Allen to strike home.
Albion played exceptionally well despite this defeat, and Jackson, who caused Spurs problems, carved out a goal for Howe. 3v1.
All goals were scored in the first half.

Brilliant Burnley bounce back

mBurnley, reigning First Division champions mad an incredible comeback in the most thrilling of matches.
Burnley forced 4 corners and had 3 goal attempts before Spurs got their wind, during a one sided opening 15 minutes.
Within 3 minutes, the scene was set for another Spurs supreme show. Maurice Norman was the main man during this initial Tottenham onslaught. He ploghed through the field to outhead the defence and open the scoring.
The Spurs supporters were still cheering, when Welsh International Cliff Jones showing tremendous pace through the White Hart Lane mud, scored twice with two successive shots.
Scotsman Mackay made it 4v0 on 36 minutes. All done bar the shouting......
. until Connelly started the sensational comeback with a goal before half time.
Two Tottenham errors by Henry and then Norman, opened the door for the Burnley revival.
Robson latched on to Henry's floundering in the mud to make it 4v2 and a similar error by Norman let in Pointer to make it 4v3.
On 77 minutes, Burnley were under pressure, then Connelly raced upfield with the ball, played a return pass with Robson, and turned a potential massacre into an epic with a tremendous equaliser at 4v4.

Mackay screamer seals it

Spurs absorbed early Everton pressure, with Collins and Harris dominant for the Goodison side. Spurs could well have been two goals down, when Temple and Wignall both missed open goals.
Blanchflower sizzled into form on 36 minutes, finding Jones, Spurs's best forward, on the right wing. He curved a perfect ball to White who steadied and controlled the ball, before driving it past Dunlop in the home goal.
Blanchflower took another pivotal role in the second goal. He ran down the wing, conducted a smart one-two with Dyson, took the ball to the goal line and crossed, and the ball found Dyson via White's head. A square ball to Allen sealed the move. 2v0.
Following the interval a fog appeared, to Everton's delight as they pulled a goal back. Right back Parker found Bingham who laid it on for Young. He set up Wignall who was able to tap the ball into an empty net.
Five minutes later however, both points were firmly in Tottenham's bag, courtesy of a Mackay screamer. From 25 yards, he rocketed the ball into the top corner of the net at blistering speed.
Another fine step towards the Championship.

Spurs deliver another Hammer blow 

Scintillating Spurs could have been 2 goals up within a couple minutes of the start with efforts from Smith and Allen. These set the scene for Tottenham's attacking prowess during the match. Brown and Jones were missing through injury.
Spurs had forced 23 saves from the Hammers keeper before Brown's deputy Hollowbread was called into action.
A West Ham own goal from an Allen effort gave the Spurs the lead, and Allem himself scored the second, giving the visitors a 2v0 half time lead.
The Hammers came into their own during the opening 10 minutes of the second half with Woosnam finding his mark with accurate passes, but they led to only one scoring opportunity  for Moore, who failed to net the ball.
A 13 pass move settled the match, with White angling a clever low shot past Rhodes.
White has been described as one of the greatest players of all time, as he appears to ghost into places, without the ball, moving into goalscoring opportunities.

The away defence paused, thinking that Dyson had been fouled, but the winger got up and crossed for Smith to chest the ball down and net in off the post.
Blackburn continued to impress either side of the interval, until Allen volleyed home from a Dyson cross on 57 minutes.
2 minutes later Blanchflower eased the pressure from a Dyson cross, which Smith backheeled to the Spurs skipper. He found a gap in the defence and shot under the keeper.
Allen and Smith a further two, before Dobing scored a late consolation goal.
Spurs missed Mackay and Jones, but Blackburn must wonder how they could possibly have loat a game which they controlled for about an hour.

Spurs were only a shadow of themselves at Wembley, until Bobby Smith blasted them in front on 69 minutes. The move involved White to Smith to Jones to Dyson to Allen to Dyson to Smith who sent a young Banks in goal, the wrong way.


Spurs 1 v 0 Leicester City

Then Dyson was on hand to head home eight minutes later. A four man move set Smith out to the corner, and his perfectly judged cross was bullet-headed into the net.


Spurs 2 v 0 Leicester City

Chances had been missed by White, Dyson and Allen to secure the game early on, but the Spurs heroes this day were Henry, Baker, Norman and Brown, whose handling and anticipation were magnificent.

Leicester were a lot more dangerous on the ball than Spurs who had more of the play. An early effort by Jones was incorrectly ruled as offside by the linesman. Had this gone in, the Spurs confidence could have returned.

As Danny Blanchflower lifted the F.A. Cup, Len Chambers was on the treatment table at Wembley, receiving attention to his badly injured right leg.

That basically was a major part in Spurs' Double victory.


Danny Blanchflower lifts the F.A. Cup


Spurs set record for most league and cup matches to win the 'The Double' - 49.

Spurs set record for most spectators attracted in a season, 2,512,034.

Danny Blanchflower wins the F.A. Footballer of The Year award.
