Spurs 60/61 Dave Mackay your way to victory – What you need to know

Tottenham Hotspur 60/61 crank up the Time Vault Soccer football card game to even higher levels. Danny Blanchflower and Cliff Jones have been strutting their football stuff in TVS since it’s launch in 2018 and now they’re joined by Messrs Mackay, Smith, Norman et al.

So celebrate one of the finest football teams the world has ever seen, stare down your opponents woeful attempts at intimidation and Dave Mackay your way to victory.


Spurs 60/61 are more than silky, flowing football. Their Time Vault Soccer squad is the perfect balance of intelligence, technical genius and strength all facilitated by a healthy dose of hand management abilities.

Forget about Iron Man, he’s a marshmallow compared to Dave Mackay. As for Thor, we’d take Bobby Smith hammering them home any day. Dr Strange nah, John White weaving his magic on the pitch beats anything Mr Strange can do… and the list goes on.

What’s different about this Tottenham squad is they give you options. Options not just on how you build your moves but on what strategy you pursue at any point during the game. Hand management abilities let you choose when to mess with your opponents strategy, play on the break or go all out attack.

In short Tottenham 60/61 are a Happy Happy Joy Joy squad to Boss and an unpredictable pain in the arsenal to play against.

Cop a look at these puppies…
