I read that he was sacked or maybe just left Spurs the first time because of something in his private life becoming public.

Anyone know what this was?

The obligatory joke had the punchline 'the one with the pleat up her skirt' IIRC, allegedly, etc.

This is Sparta !
Remember that old one about the FA fining Spurs for being 6 hours late for the away game at Arsenal?

Pleat was driving the team bus. :D

Never the less, David Pleat was in my opinion one of the best left wingers we ever had, not unlike Tony Scott. He made 80 appearances for us in all competitions between 1968 and 1970. He invented that Ronaldo type stepover shuffle before Ronaldo was born!
