    OH MY GOD !!!!!

    Kat, this is the ultimate – JIMMY GREAVES, absolutely my boyhood hero.

    This was a Tottenham Hotspur Christmas Party around 1962. Greaves had joined the club after they had won the double and would remain with the club until his transfer in 1970 to West Ham in exchange for Martin Peters. Jimmy was a brilliant player and goal scorer. The Enigmatic Mr Greaves

    I salute the most magic of KTCC moments.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I had no idea who this was, but I knew it was taken in England and hoped you’d know something about this picture.

      How serendipitous that he is one of your heroes. I totally understand the !!!!!!!!.

      I am happy.

        So you are telling me that you didn’t know it was Tottenham Hotspur ?????

        He is on the left with Marchi and Terry Dyson. There is a sister picture of the whole lot having a good old fashioned knees up in the back room of a pub.

        I am to believe that by serendipity you produced the greatest pandering of all time ?????

        My Dear Hedley,
        This posting is pure happenstance. They had a Christmas pudding which is what I wanted. The men were backdrops.

        Minicapt, excellent point but strangely this is a rather famous photo that does the rounds when the modern footballer is captured in the excesses of the holiday season. Why is….(insert name)……lying in the gutter, look how well behaved they were in 1962.
        Jim was to face lifelong battles with the bottle, but that was to be a few years hence.

      minicapt,
      That was awesome. I envy the audience. It must have been spectacular to hear each of voices meld and each of the new ones.

    Is that black thing in the center of the plate in the photo a plum pudding? is it related to a fruit cake?

    • katry Says:

      Bob, it is a plum pudding. I guess it is a bit like a fruit cake as it does have friend fruit. It also has plenty of spices and a true plum pudding has a suet binder.
