Former Blue Spence Joins ADO Den Haag
Wednesday, 22nd Jan 2020 10:43
Former Blues right-back Jordan Spence has joined Alan Pardew’s ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands on a deal to the end of the season.
The 29-year-old, who spent time with the side third-bottom of the Eredivisie (the Dutch top tier) at a training camp in Spain earlier this month, was released by the Blues at the end of last season and has been without a club since then.
The Londoner made 69 starts and seven sub appearances for Town, scoring four times, having signed in January 2017 following a trial earlier that season.
Spence was a young player at West Ham during Pardew's time in charge at Upton Park.
“I look forward to making a contribution to ADO Den Haag,” Spence said. “The first impressions of the club and its fans are very good.
“My time at the training camp was important. The players immediately made me feel comfortable in Spain.
“It was good to see that the team won last weekend. Hopefully this victory will be the start of a nice second half of the season.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
