Glory be: Spurs’ nod to iconic anthem


TOTTENHAM’S popular touchline presenter Paul Coyte recounted the origins of the club’s ‘Glory Glory Hallelujah’ anthem, before kick-off. It dates back to their first European Cup campaign in 196162 and a tie against Gornik Zabrze. The Polish press claimed Bill Nicholson’s side were ‘no angels’ after a physical first leg so some Spurs fans dressed in heavenly attire for the return leg, holding placards promising vengeance as their team won 8-1. ‘A tradition was born,’ Coyte roared and the anthem was belted out one more time. Glory be.

DOCTOR’S orders left Antonio Conte at a disadvanta­ge in the touchline style wars. Back in the dugout since his post-op setback Conte was wrapped up snug in his winter coat while Stefano Pioli (right) strutted in a roll-neck jumper, suit and gleaming white trainers.
