The Tottenham Hotspur logo is as simple as it is recognisable, a ball topped by a 'cockerel', a rooster. This famous symbol has stood as a bronze statue on the roof of White Hart Lane since 1909, and the cockerel has also returned to the new stadium. A completely new, larger version has been made, and this time it is above the South Stand. What is special is that they have copied the old cockerel (except for the size) exactly, including all irregularities. There is a mysterious dent in the ball on which the rooster is standing.
Rumours had circulated for years that it was a German WWII bomb fragment, but the real story is even crazier: Paul Gascoigne (who else) was at White Hart Lane firing an airgun at pigeons and it wasn't long until he decided to fire at the famous cockerel, resulting in the dent. Not a German bomber, but the ingeniously crazy Gazza.
