    Kasey Keller - Special

    Kasey Keller - Special

    Host Ricky Sacks was joined by John from Lilywhite Rose and former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Kasey Keller on this week's Last Word On Spurs show.
    Kasey Keller squeezed just about everything into a 22-year professional career. Over a century of caps and four World Cups for the USA, cutting his teeth at Millwall, glory days at Leicester, 83 consecutive starts at Spurs, the first American to play in La Liga and a title challenge with Rayo Valecano, only the second American to captain a Bundesliga side during his time at Borussia Monchengladbach before a hero's return home to Seattle, where he played until he was 41. He even lived in a castle during his time in Germany!
    As part of Martin O'Neill's golden spell at the old Filbert Street in the late 1990s, Kasey helped the Foxes lift their first trophy in 28 years - the League Cup in 1997 - and clinch three-successive top 10 finishes in the Premier League. He was also in goal for Leicester against is in the League Cup Final in 1999, won by Allan Nielsen's late, late diving header. Kasey later played in the final game at Filbert Street as a Spurs player in May, 2002 and then had a game he'll never forget in our first visit to the all-new Walkers Stadium, as it was then (now King Power Stadium) back in October, 2003.
    After two years in Spain with Rayo Vallecano, Keller returned to England with Tottenham in 2001. Signed as a back-up to Neil Sullivan, who at the time was the club’s player of the season, he took a while to establish himself at White Hart Lane and wasn’t helped by playing behind an often mediocre defence. Spurs fans retain grim memories of the 2003-04 season when Glenn Hoddle was sacked in September with the club in 17th place. Under caretaker David Pleat they stayed in the bottom half for almost the entire season and finished 14th. Through an unstable period, Keller was seen as sound and reliable, often making last-ditch blocks with legs and feet to bail out team-mates.
    At the age of 38 Keller finally made his MLS debut with Seattle Sounders where he stayed for the next two seasons before retiring.

    Remembering Justin Edinburgh

    Remembering Justin Edinburgh

    Host Ricky Sacks was joined by John from Lilywhite Rose and special guest to this week's podcast Charlie Edinburgh to celebrate the life of his Dad, Justin Edinburgh.
    Justin Edinburgh made 276 appearances for Spurs and won the 1991 FA Cup and 1999 League Cup during his playing days at White Hart Lane and became a decorated legend of the football club.

    Erik Edman - Special

    Erik Edman - Special

    Host Ricky Sacks is joined by John from LilyWhite Rose and former Spurs left-back Erik Edman on this week's edition of the Last Word On Spurs.
    When thinking about Erik Edman and his time at Tottenham Hotspur, there is just one moment that certainly stands out and with good reason.
    The former Sweden international may have only had one season at White Hart Lane, despite making himself a regular in the side, however, he certainly made himself memorable with those at the club.
    In April 2005, Edman hit a stunning strike from an extremely long distance, thought to be around 35 yards out, at Anfield against Liverpool that left Jerzy Dudek with no chance and saw the ball fly into the back of the net.
    The left-back, who in the music industry may be considered a one-hit wonder, certainly made his mark on Spurs, although his superb strike is not the only memorable one they have had when coming up against the Reds away from home.
    Despite Edman becoming a regular for Martin Jol’s side in his first season following his switch from Heerenveen, he decided to move on in the summer when Lee Young-Pyo was brought to the club.
    In truth, it probably would not have been a surprise as the Swede had a habit of moving from club to club after a season as prior to his move to the Premier League, he spent just two years at Helsingborgs IF in the first-team before one year spells at Torino, Karlsruher SC and AIK Athens and Heerenveen.
    He then appeared to settle down for a little while at Rennes after his Spurs move, staying with the French side for three years before returning to England with Wigan Athletic for a couple of seasons.
    Once his time there had come to an end, he returned to where it all started for him and finished his career with Helsingborgs in 2013, making 57 appearances for Sweden throughout his playing days.

    David Howells - Special

    David Howells - Special

    Host Ricky Sacks was joined by Jason McGovern and Tottenham Hotspur legend David Howells for this edition of the Last Word On Spurs.
    David came through the youth system and made his Spurs debut in 1986, scoring in a 2-1 victory against Sheffield Wednesday. He went on to play for the club 277 games and scoring 22 goals. David started his career as an attacking midfielder and matured into a holding midfielder.
    Teddy Sheringham once described David as a player`s player and was appreciated for his work rate more by his team mates than the fans in the stands. David would never pull out from anything where he might get hurt. I remember watching Spurs V Aston Villa just after the 1990 Italia world cup and scoring a header. Unfortunately, as a result of the challenge on David`s header, he ended up getting knocked out and ended up being carried off on a stretcher.
    Additional to his work rate, he was also had a bit of craft to his game. He could pass the ball well and every now and then he would produce a Hoddle type pass that would unlock the opposition defence. He made a massive contribution to us winning the 1991 FA cup and in many opinions he was the man of the match in the famous 1991 semi final against South London United.
    Although it was strongly touted at the time, David never went on to play for England. When Graham Taylor took over the England reigns many suggested that Howells would be one of players to win their first cap for England under the new regime.
    A few years later saw the dawn of the famous five under the stewardship of Ossie, It was the start of the 1994-95. Although we started playing some great attacking play we were somewhat very lightweight when it came to winning the battle in no mans land and as a result ended up losing a lot of games. Unfortunately, after only a couple of months into the season Ossie lost his job and Gerry Francis was replaced. During the exotic times of the famous five, David had been overlooked and one of the first changes that Francis made was to reinstate Howells in the midfield to add some steel. It made a massive difference and was one of the key factors to the successful start that Francis had made.
