An Evening With Mickey Hazard
More Photos

What a great evening. The private room of the Pagoda Palace had been decked out with our Spurs flags and the tables were perfectly placed for all to see the Spurs legend - Mickey Hazard. He was a very humble man but talked passionately about his time at Spurs and the audience listening intently for over 90 mins.

We learned about how, when he joined at 16 and had to leave the family home in Sunderland, he kept running away from Tottenham to see his family. It was his Dad who kept bringing him back but with no doubt of the incentive of the £150 expenses that Tottenham paid him for each journey! It just goes to show how much Spurs valued his talent. He also shared fabulous anicdotes of this roommate Ossie Ardiles and his good friend Glenn Hoddle. He told of his happy years at Swindon and interestingly how the Chelsea fans adored him as well.

A wonderful spread of food was provided by the Pacoda Palace and a great comedian added to what was a great night.

In short, a wonderful evening with an amazingly down to earth man who made time for everyones photos, autographs and spoke to everyone as if he had known them forever - a true Spurs legend.
