INFO:

1954-64, 382 appearances, 21 goals

The man who ran the show, and what a show it was. Always keeping the ball moving, the right half would wait for an opening and find a pass that the opposition had not seen and an angle that didn’t seem to exist. Several generations of my family considered him the finest player to grace the lilywhite shirt, reinforced by my father’s recollection that the Northern Irishman took on England almost single-handedly in a 1-1 draw at Wembley in 1961. A deep-thinking captain who temporarily lost the role in 1956 over onfield changes, Blanchflower became a forthright journalist and refused to go on This Is Your Life when confronted by the Big Red Book. He also caused controversy with Barnsley when he demanded to use a ball in training and later said of the game: “It is full of beautiful movements, ballet movements, if you like. It was never meant to be played in the air. Let’s give the public real football.” That summed it up: Blanchflower was all about the glory.

Robert Dennis "Danny" Blanchflower (10 February 1926 - 9 December 1993) was a footballer, football manager, and journalist who captained Tottenham Hotspur F.C. during its double-winning season of 1961. He was ranked as the greatest player in Spurs history by The Times of London in 2009. He is remembered as one of the great tacticians in the history of the game, renowned for his passing, and as an outstanding right-half.

Danny Blanchflower wrote:“Football is not really about winning, or goals, or saves or supporters- it’s about glory. It’s about doing things in style, doing them with a flourish; it’s about going out to beat the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom."

Thanks for these I was about to post a set of similar looking stats. Id drop mentality to around 90 though it shouldn't be the same as Mackay who was the one chasing everyone down. Whilst Blanchflower was a great leader he was more of the meastro in the great spurs 60's team while Mackay was the heartbeat.

Thanks Cutthroat! :D I guess I chose 34 because it was when he was part of the legendary Double side. From what I've read he was very consistent and a star of the 1958 World Cup very funny man too having read some of his quotes :D

Thanks Brezza, I've adjusted mentality I was a bit high and pondered about Mackay and the stats I've seen, both were great leaders as was another in the side Bobby Smith. BUT now on reflection Mackay should get higher as he later inspired Derby to the old 2nd Division title when he was a broken down old man and later managed Derby to the title, add in captaining again Spurs to FA cup again in 1967 and recovering from two broken legs...........yes I guess Blanchflower good as he was needs to come down a bit....... :D
