We have talked on this blog before about how much we love beer football shirt sponsors, and one of our undoubted favourites is Holsten, who were a staple on Spurs shirts through the 1990s.
We caught up with Chris Miller from Windy COYS to talk Holsten Spurs kits with Sheringham on the back and Harry Kane scoring in the North London derby.
What was your first football shirt?
Young #Spurs today will never understand what a huge signing Jurgen Klinsmann was back in 1994. #Tottenham finished 15th in the league the season previous and managed to sign Jurgen - a World Cup winner.
My favourite Spurs shirt looks-wise is – like a lot of fans – the 1987 Hummel shirt. But the one that brings back the most memories is the 1995 Pony shirt. We had a terrible team on the whole but Sheringham and Anderton were fantastic – two of my very favourite players – and I associate the time with Britpop as I was 11/12 and just getting into music. Life just felt so simple back then, *sigh*.
What is your favourite goal?
📅 7th February 2015.
Harry Kane marks his first ever North London Derby with a brace vs Arsenal. That winning header and celebration four minutes from time is one of my favourite moments at the Lane. #THFC#COYSpic.twitter.com/Q3kZncKI0R
I’ve had a few favourites over the years but, genuinely – and this isn’t just because it’s recent – Kane’s header against Arsenal at White Hart Lane from last season. It meant so much and the connection with the fans in that moment and just after was something very, very special that will be incredibly difficult to reproduce.
Thanks to Chris to speaking with us!
