Terry's Soccer Nostalgia
Due to the fact that the software we use is being discontinued, we will be unable to add any further articles. However, as a thank you to our loyal readers we have added seven new articles to most of the tabs. The website will still be available for the foreseeable future should you wish to view any of the articles.
Click here to visit the "old" Soccer Nostalgia website which will still be available should you wish to view the articles.
To visit my original "grassroots" website which focuses predominantly on football in the North Lancashire area, click here.
Should any reader have photographs or information about anything on the site they can contact me through the Lancaster Guardian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was initially a pleasant stroll down a nostalgic, well-worn path to remember people from the world of sport that I admired as a young boy but it has now opened up so that I can search the sporting archives for stories and events from anywhere in the world.
How do you describe or explain your affinity with a team? Is it a player, is it your home town or birthplace or maybe a magical name? My love and attachment to Spurs was born when I was 7 years old and has never, ever wavered.
A Milestone can be a stone by the side of a road that shows the distance in miles to a specified place or alternatively an important point in the progress or development of something: a very important event or advance in the life of an individual or institution.
"Interviews" replaces "Guest Writer" and will feature voices from the past. Managers and players who, generally speaking, are no longer with us but whose views often throw a different perspective on the game from times past.
Stadia is taken from a book “Football Grounds From Above” with photographs by Ian Hay who has kindly allowed me to use them on this website. It tells the story of Britain’s leading grounds which developed from humble beginnings to become some of the greatest sporting stadiums in the land.
The Gallery will feature players and clubs from a bygone era with the occasional surprise like a referee carrying a gun on the field in Brazil or Stan Mortensen not in the tangerine shirt of Blackpool.
"Spotlight" will shine a light on players, managers and football clubs and hopefully unearth some interesting facts that are not generally known. For example Preston North End being kicked out of the FA Cup for paying their players, only for professionalism to be introduced a year later in 1885.
Grassroots will focus on local football predominantly in the North Lancashire area. Here you will read about many of the players and officials who gave their time to foster and promote the game.
Greatest Spurs XI
In late 2016 a poll was held to find the greatest Spurs XI in their fabled history. Steve Perryman passed on the results to me and I must admit I was more than surprised at the final XI so I decided to pick my own.
