      so, I thought I would provide the forum with a monthly look at past Spurs players who may not be held in the high regard as they deserve. Perhaps the failed to deliver week in and week out, but they were players in my lifetime who did inspire me one way or the other.

      Episode 1 - Steffen Iversen

      Signed for £2.5 million in December of 96, the prolific Rosenberg striker made his debut against Coventry City



      With a goal disallowed and a hand in the winner, it was seen as a good debut for the 20 year old. Iversen went on to score 6 goals in his next 16 games, not a bad return for young player settling in a new league.

      1999 saw Iversen collect his winners medal when Spurs one the league cup, his assist setting up Allan Nielsen to scoop in and head the winner. As with both finals, they seem to eclipse the journey there, but it was Iversen's winner against Wimbledon which sent Ossies legs trembling

      https://www.theguardian.com/football/1999/feb/16/match.sport (could not find highlights)

      Goal of the season anyone?



      In 144 appearance for the lilywhites, his return was 36 goals. Not the massive return everyone was expecting, but was a core member of the squad until injury played his part and he transferred to Wolves before returning to his native country

      In 2010, he joined Palace in a surprise return to the premier league, scoring 2 goals in 20 appearances

      Not a great goal scorer, or a scorer of great goals. Perhaps considered a flop by others, but in his Spurs career, there were important moments that brought success to the club

      Anyway, someone made a (bad) tribute videos, so he must be an unsung hero?

      Great idea @Havocc looking forward to seeing your selection. Iversen is a good shout as a starting point.

      This is a great idea for a thread, and a great choice in Iverson.

      Check the spectators interest level in the background.........lol.

      I was at that Old Trafford semi final.......another very painful one for lots of reasons, probably the most painful in fact. We've lost so many semi-finals in my era, bloody frustrating looking back on it, but no more.

      Nothing will ever be more painful than the 87 semi-final replay,even worse than losing to coventry 3 months later!!a heartbreaker,both of them!!
