Well it’s now officially 2011 which can mean only one thing……. the year ends in a 1. This spells trouble for anyone out there for the year ending in a 1 is the year of the almighty Tottenham Hotspur and the year we spring into life.
For those of you young enough not to remember, there is an old saying, like a witches tale that when the year ends in a 1 that Spurs will win a trophy, just take a look at our history and you will see we have had more success with the year ending in a 1 than any other.
- In 1951 and 1961 we won the league
- FA Cup Winners, 1901, 1921, 1961, 1981, 1991
- League Cup, 1971
- Charity Shield 1921, 1951, 1961, ( 1981, 1991)
- And for good measure we won the Anglo-Italia Cup in 1971
It’s there for all to see, that with the year ending in a 1 that Spurs seem to find form, the trouble is we said this 10 years ago in 2001 and ended up with nothing which means this time around we are going to do the double because the year ends in a double 1. So you pick, Premiership/FA Cup, Premiership/Champions League, or Champions League/FA Cup. Ah sod it, let’s win the treble.
No stopping us now, the year ends in a 1, so everyone else beware because Tottenham are coming for you. Year ending in a 1 is the year of the cockerel!
I’ll leave you with this for the new year, our Champions League story so far….
