Ralph Coates: 1946-2010 – A Burnley, Tottenham And Orient Legend

It is surprisingly uncommon to find a player whose passing will be marked equally between two different clubs, but the death of Ralph Coates at the age of sixty-four will be marked with sadness at all three of the Football League clubs at which he played: Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient.

Match Of The Week: Arsenal 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur

The Premier League Previews, Part 16: Tottenham Hotspur – To Dare Is To Do (Again)

Following the 1-0 win against Manchester City that secured Champions League football for the club for the first time in their penultimate match of last season, Tottenham Hotspur players celebrated as if they had just won the Premier League itself. In some respects, this was understandable – consider, for example, what this must have been…
