Right - Here is a link to MEHSTG.. where are they now ?

http://www.mehstg.com/whereare.htm#C

I'm not sure if if can be posted, but if it can - then credit where its due.


What a great site, really intresting... Makes you think though how lucky players are today, even the very average ones make bundles of money enough to set them up for life...

Upsetting to see what some of the older players have to do to make a living after leaving spurs. A couple of players have ended up as Market traders A few have ended up as postmen or publicans... and not forgetting those who I feel most sorry for... those who have ended up at WestSpam.

Big chiv was an awsome centre forward, big , strong ,had deceptive pace and scared defnders to death, he was my first ever spurs hero and his goals and powerhouse performances will stay in my heart and mind forever. Note to spurs since 1961,this is a site dedicated to chivs induction to the thfc hall of fame, if you found him such a bad player thats your opinion,but dont put it on a site in praise and honour of the man, you might call yourself spurs since 1961 but wonder just how many times youve actually been.

The best game I ever saw him play was against Leeds at home some time in the early 70s on an icy pitch - I mean icy, when he just danced on ice for 90 minutes and destroyed them. Anyone else remember that? It was so un Chivers like.

yep PB - I was there, him and Jennings both put in 10 out of 10 performances as we beat the mighty (as they were then :) Leeds 2-1 - I remember the stacks of hay/straw round the side of the ground for some reason

I think it was in 71 - I also think it helped AFC win the double as I remember my dad, an Arsenal fan, being well pleased about us winning

For all his physical attributes, he was too gentle. Had he had a bit more devil in him, he could have been one of England's best ever centre forward.
