Im 26 and the first time I set foot in The Lane was in 1989 when I was 8 years old and Spurs played Newcastle.

Gary was playing, alongside Hoddle and Clive Allen - I'll never forget that sunny day, sat in the East Stand with my Dad watching Allen score an awesome right foot "banana shot" as i called it!

But the highlight was seeing Mabbut boss the game from start to finish - sheer brilliance.

Love ya Mabbsy!

Absolutely, great inclusion into the Legends of the Lane archive. Brings back happy memories thinking of those days with Gary in the team. Gutted for him in '87 and delighted for him in '91.

Top player and a true gent to boot. He was at the last game of the season vs City and he stayed behind to sign my season ticket book and at least 60-70 other spurs fans st's and programmes in Park Lane upper. He told us that he attended all of our away games in Europe! He loves us, we love him!

Brings back memory's he was my hero as a child. His commitment and determination was second to none. The fact he still considers us so highly is a credit to him and the club.
