Popular use of the tune began in September 61’ during the 1961–62 European Cup in the home fixture against the Polish side Górnik Zabrze. The Polish press had previously described the Spurs team as "no angels". For the leg at White Hart Lane, some fans dressed themselves in angel costumes and held placards with slogans like 'Glory be to shining White Hart Lane' and 'Rejoice! This is the night of vengeance'. The crowd started singing "Glory Glory Hallelujah" when Spurs beat the Poles 8–1 and there began the goosebump inducing tradition at games from then on.
