85 fucking goals. Dixie Dean.

Remember it.


Why? Is there going to be a test? :)

I've known about Dixie's stats (although not this one) since I was a kid reading every book about football the library had, and wouldn't dream of knocking them - the 60 in the league in a season will stand for my lifetime – but no-one I knew as a kid saw him play, and nothing was televised, so it's just numbers. Very impressive numbers (although lumping in the Lancashire Cup and England trials is stretching things a little bit) granted, but a completely different time - look how many George Camsell got in 1927, and his record for England, 'better' than Dean's.

But this is a Spurs thread, HK is doing what he's doing now, and I feel it's worth celebrating.

The fourth goal against Everton. A thing of extraordinary beauty

Second consecutive runners-up spot looking a distinct possibility, with the three teams above us all looking very flaky. I'd have settled for that at the beginning of the season.

Interesting stat for Spurs this season - Eriksen has created over 45 goalscoring chances for Harry Kane. He's scored one of them.

I don't believe clubs should be making decisions on any kids aged eight..whatever the criteria.

You're the only one talking about Marcus's post. The rest of the posts from Penk on down are talking about the game – or perhaps you didn't realise there was European football on, since it isn't Thursday ;).

I watched the game tonight and that was a mighty performance from Spurs. To come from 2-0 down after 9 minutes, in Turin, is sensational. Let's hope they can finish the job off in London.

I have to admit I did a fist pump when Kane scored. I'd like to see them win the whole thing, or at least two of Spurs / Liverpool / City final.

I watched it around my brothers, who is a Spurs fan, so I kind of felt obligated to do something similar.. :) (Kane took the goal absolutely superbly, didn't he). But seriously that was an excellent performance, despite a couple of their players having shockers (Aurier particularly, and Alli only marginally less so).

Considering who they've played so far, and the results they've achieved, they will not be a team the other clubs want to draw in the QF's, if they finish the job off at Wembley.

What a fabulous Cup tie..... Rochdale at Wembley for the replay. That's the stuff of dreams.

It was great, wasn't it? Must admit I was a bit disappointed when the ref gave the pen.
