This week I will identify a number of the players and give you some detail of their careers with Tottenham. For the better known players you will be given their initials and asked a number of questions related to their time at White Hart Lane.
The Spurs ‘F’ Team – players whose surnames begin with the letter ‘F’. Again it’s a difficult one as there are only 19 players to choose from and many of them played before the 2nd World War or made little impact at White Hart Lane. Another history lesson to develop your knowledge of some of the lesser known Tottenham players.
You get one point for the player’s name and 1 for answering each question correctly.
Some of the answers can be found at links to the question but all of the answers will appear in the comments box at the end of the quiz. The team is set out in a 4-4-2 formation with some players out of position.
