I had the pleasure of seeing the G men when just a lad and what incredible memories I have of them and the goals they scores. Gilly will be sadly missed

Real legends of the club. History is always sad when it's gone, but will never be forgotten.

There was a thread under Spurs Chat, but that only went to 3 pages. Gilly was a brilliant player and, IMHO, a real Spurs Legend. Gone, but not forgotten, RIP Gilly. :(

Just seen this letter about Gilly in the Guardian (the article appeared on my NewsNow feed; honest I'm not a Guardianista) - i assume (if true) this was only for Saturday 15:00 kick off's:

Rumour has it that the only reason Alan Gilzean (Obituary, 12 July) stayed with Tottenham Hotspur after Jimmy Greaves left was that with the advent of substitutions, the Spurs manager agreed he would substitute him 15 minutes before full time. This enabled Alan to leave White Hart Lane before the crowds and get to his local in Winchmore Hill at opening time.
