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”.
Ever-present during his 17 years at the club during the 70s and 80s, Steve made a club record 866 appearances in all competitions for the Lillywhites.
He won the UEFA Cup in 1972 and 1984, the FA Cup in 1981 and 1982 and the League Cup in 1971 and 1973 with Spurs and was voted the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year in 1982.
Steve scored both goals in the team’s 2-1 home win over AC Milan in the 1972 UEFA Cup semi-final first leg.
After leaving White Hart Lane, Steve went on to forge a successful career in football coaching and management.
Tough-tackling defender/midfielder Graham Roberts won two FA Cups and the UEFA Cup with Spurs, famously continuing to play in the 1981 FA Cup Final at Wembley despite having his teeth knocked out.
Coming up through non-league football, joining Tottenham from Weymouth, Spurs fans immediately identified with his bravery and passion for the game and still reminisce about his most famous goal: a leveller in the dying minutes of the second leg of the UEFA Cup final which sent the match to penalties.
He was capped six times for England by Sir Bobby Robson.
