Tottenham Legends

Joining Tottenham after lifting the 1978 Word Cup with Argentina, tricky midfielder Ossie Ardiles went on to win the 1981 FA Cup Final with Spurs and also helped Tottenham reach the final the following year.

He also featured in the team’s 1984 UEFA Cup triumph, became Spurs caretaker manager in 1987 and returned to manage the club full-time during the Nineties, becoming the first Premier League manager from outside the British Isles!

He remains one of Spurs fans’ most fondly-remembered players: the team’s 1981 FA Cup song with Chas and Dave was titled “Ossie’s Dream”.

After captaining Blackburn Rovers to the Premier League title, the midfield dynamo was brought to Spurs by George Graham for a reported £3.8m in 1999. During his first season with the Lilywhites, he made the first of his three appearances for England at the age of 30.

Following his retirement as a player, Tim returned to White Hart Lane in 2008 to take up the role of assistant team coach under new manager Harry Redknapp. During what proved to be a five-year spell, Tim  progressed to technical director in 2012 working wonders with the under-21s team.

Following the departure of André Villas-Boas as manager in 2013, he was made head coach, leading Spurs to a sixth-place finish in the top flight, before being replaced by club chairman Daniel Levy at the end of the season. Claims to fame during this time include handing Harry Kane his Premier League debut and a 59 per cent win ratio.

Renowned for his straight talking, Tim is a regular face on Sky Sports and has never been shy of voicing an opinion.

A one-club man, spending his entire career at Spurs – from 1999 to 2012 – Tottenham runs through Ledley King’s veins.

Now an ambassador for the club, the tall central defender made 21 appearances for England, scoring twice and playing in both the World Cup and Euros.

Ledley is rightly named among the top 25 players to have ever pulled on a Spurs shirt by The Times newspaper and overcame knee injuries to notch up an incredible 321 competitive matches for the Lilywhites.

In the latter part of his career, Ledley was plagued by his chronic knee problems, for which no effective treatment was found. Instead of training with the rest of the Spurs squad, he undertook fitness exercises on his own, allowing him to play one first team game per week.

His former manager Harry Redknapp marvelled at Ledley's ability to be able to perform at Premiership level despite his limited training regime.

For many years the lead anchor on Sky Sports News and presenter of the station’s Match Choice highlights show among many other flagship programmes, Hayley is the daughter of legendary Leeds, Man U and Scotland centre back Gordon McQueen.
