27.08.2002 Premier League.  Away    Won  1-0

No sign of the fabled/promised striker(s) and only 4 days to go to the transfer deadline.  Always looking on the bright side of life though … this was a solid performance and a decent victory (over a side who beat us home and away last season) leaving Spurs joint second with the team who should have stayed where they belonged and become Charlton’s local rivals.  One of the first things you see when disembarking the Woolwich Ferry (once you have gone through Passport Control) is the sign for “Woolwich Ars**al”.  If they’d stayed put, our one and only song would now be “stand up if you hate Orient” !!  

The Valley is an impressive ground on the inside (with the exception of the away end which is primitive).  Outside though this is 50’s throwback territory with tight terraced houses backing on to the stadium.  The atmosphere around the Valley is friendly, with no hint of the tension which accompanies our visits to the other London Premier League venues.  There is a real, old fashioned, football atmosphere here with a far smaller corporate contingent than we have to put up with at WHL. 

Two team changes from the previous game against Villa.  Bunji in for Acimovic (to give more of a defensive anchor in midfield) and the Doc in for Sir Les (to rest the old feller?).  Bunji is competent in that holding position and Glenn is forced to play him there, because our natural spoilers are either injured or out of favour.  However, he is clearly more comfortable in the back-line.  The Doc gave everything (as ever) but lacks the finesse to open up Premier League defences. 

The goal came after just seven minutes. Davies played a one-two with Teddy on the right side of the box and crashed the ball into the roof of the net from a tight angle.  ‘Ave it! 

Matty Etherington provided a lot of pace on the left where he was up against a skinhead Luke Young.  On 17 minutes, he played another one-two with Teddy, but had his shot blocked by Bart-Williams.  Doc headed over from the resultant corner.  Mid-way through the first half Charlton wasted a good chance, when Bart-Williams put a free-kick over the bar following a Richards push on the edge of the area.   Redknapp had two further shots on goal before the break.  Spurs had played the better football and were generally the more comfortable team in the first half. 

As soon as the second period started Keller came out sharply to block from Euell.  There then followed strong, sustained pressure from Spurs, involving four corners in quick succession: Gardner nicked the ball off of Doherty’s head (he would have scored), Kiely saved a smart Gardner header, a Redknapp hook-shot was cleared off the line and Richards headed just wide. 

On the hour Davies, put through neatly by Sheringham, looked to have rounded Kiely before being brought down.  To everyone’s surprise (including Kiely’s?) the ref booked Davies for diving.  Kiely got a lot of stick from the Spurs fans in the South Stand behind him for the rest of the game, but the real villain was referee Wiley … it could have cost us the game … immediately after the incident Keller had to make a great save from Euell.

Both Etherington and Redknapp then had reasonable chances, but shot over.  With 13 minutes left Sir Les replaced the Doc and added an extra dimension up front.  If the transfer window slams shut before a signing is made, a fit (and motivated) strike group of Teddy, Les, Rebrov (if he is ever picked again), Iversen and the Doc could be rotated to good effect. 

This was a sound team performance.  Keller kept a clean sheet for the second game running.  Gardner and Richards won everything in the air at the back.  Redknapp’s chasing and closing down (in addition to his creative play) was exceptional and there is more to come from Ziege who was clearly under orders to conserve energy (and not move over the half way line) for the second 45 minutes. 

Into second spot but we need achievable targets for this season.  Forget a European place … I’d settle for our two forwards (whoever they may be) getting close enough to each other to make the numerous headers won from long clearances count and/or a Spurs goal direct from a free kick !  

Roll on Saturday and the titanic clash with the SCBC.

18.03.2002 Premier League.  Home   Lost   0-1

The defeat tonight was as bad as anything we have witnessed this season by Tottenham.  Not that they played badly, just with a lack of commitment that was supposedly there in too large an amount last Sunday against Chelsea.

The old frailties re-appeared and the lack of a goalscorer was evident, as chances were passed up and the one decent opportunity the opposition had was stuck away off a thigh.  The luck is not going the way of Tottenham at the moment, with Poyet’s shot coming back off the bar and out, while once again Kiely saved all that was thrown at him.  

One of the main problems is that Spurs want to play too much football on the edge of the area.  No, make that both areas.  Defenders holding the ball on the 18 yard line either try and pass across their own goal (a schoolboy no-no at any level) or try and bring the ball out and slip up laving the ball presented at the forward’s feet.  Both have allowed panic amongst their fellow defenders and when we are unable to stick the ball in the net at the other end, leave Tottenham chasing the game.

Tonight, the lack of a perceptive pass and a player willing to take the responsibility in having a shot were totally absent.  Ziege persisted with taking the free-kicks and put them all high and wide, which at least showed he was willing to have a go, but surely there could be some variety in our dead ball situations ?  The few chances we made almost came as a surprise.  Ferdinand’s header made Kiely react sharply to palm it away, as it looked like it might creep past the Charlton keeper. In truth, the ball hit Les’ head as he fell backwards and he did well to direct it goalwards.  The clear chances that Gus had in the second half would have gone in a month or so ago, but the keeper blocked one low one, one volley flew over by a couple of feet and the third was wide, although it was via the goalie’s glove.  Unsurprisingly, Winter missed that fact, as he didn’t seem to notice when visiting players clattered into the back of the Spurs men.  Gardner gets done for his first foul, while Parker committed three bad fouls and didn’t even get spoken to.

Charlton were determined to get stuck in and Costa flattened Rebrov, getting a rare start, while Rufus went straight through Les from behind after the ball had gone.  They created few chances and looked set to accept the draw, until we cocked up in defence.  Young had the best chance of the first half, when he got in on a long ball over Ziege’s head and hit a low shot that Sullivan managed to block with his legs.  The only real chance they had in the second half was the goal, when a Stuart cross evaded Euel and with King coming in at the far post, the ball wasn’t cleared and it bounced off Chris Powell’s thigh and past Sully.  Another messy goal that cost us points.

The lack of what looked like pride in their performance tainted a few players appearance.  Rebrov looked mobile and sharp, but didn’t look like scoring.  However, taking him off was a move that didn’t reflect the attempts to get back into the game.  His storming exit straight down the tunnel will indicate what he thought of it all and he might not get the chance to do much more of that if Hoddle has his way.  Too many crosses were flung in hopelessly and there was never ever anyone to get on the end of them.  For a London derby, it was lacking atmosphere (not helped by the many empty seats) and the black clouds that have hung over the Spurs crowd since that rainy day in Cardiff.  That was the day our season died, even though we hadn’t played well for some time.  That knocked the stuffing out of the team and has left them needing to win one more match to be practically certain of avoiding relegation.

It’s just where will that or the next goal come from ?

08.12.2001 Premier League.  Away   Lost   1-3

We knew it was going to be a strange day when we arrived at the car park on the local trading estate. Do you do valet parking we enquired of the car park attendant? No Charlton pulled out of here two years ago he replied! (Valley – get it !!)

Spurs arrived at the Valley knowing a win would take them into second place. The fans were optimistic after the recent results. Charlton however were fresh from a victory at Stamford Bridge. They have not lost a London derby this season and were not about to start now. In true Spurs style they built us up and then let us all down with a mighty crash. Freund, Ziege and Ferdinand were all missing. Taricco was back from injury. Rebrov started up front and Bunjevcevic took on the holding role in midfield. It was the worst possible start to the game. 

After just 4 minutes Richards moved in on Euell to shield the ball out of play. Dean never really got in control of the situation and as the two players tumbled on the goal line just wide of goal, Euell toed the ball back across goal into the path of Stuart who slotted into the empty net. Sullivan had moved out to cover Richards. It was a poor piece of play by the Spurs central defender and seemed to effect him for the rest of the game. This ensured Charlton got their tails up. 

Spurs were finding it difficult to get going as Charlton harried and charged into tackles. After 19 minutes it went from bad to worse. A series of missed tackles by Spurs defenders including King and Richards allowed Lisbie to get free. He turned and struck the ball past Sullivan from close in. 

Gradually Tottenham started to build prompted by Anderton and Sheringham. Both Daren and Teddy had half chances, which they blasted over. Rebrov had a first time chance which he hesitated on. He then got clear down the left and hit the by-line. Unfortunately his cross was driven back with such pace Sheringham could not connect and another chance was wasted. Anderton also got in a good position and wasted his cross. With half time approaching Teddy had a good shot tipped round the post. 

At the start of the second half Iversen replaced Bunjevcevic and the side was reshuffled, as Goran had looked out of sorts in the midfield role. Tottenham searched for a goal. The old Anderton/Sheringham corner routine would have paid dividends, but for an excellent save by Kiely. Sheringham did “score” after deflecting a Poyet shot past the Charlton keeper, but Teddy was ruled offside. Charlton were looking like the away side and eager to hit on the break. That was exactly what they did in the 78th minute with Tottenham fully committed to attack. Parker raced almost the length of the pitch before passing to an unmarked Lisbie to his right. Lisbie slotted past Sullivan for a three nil scoreline. 

This prompted a mass exodus by disappointed Spurs fans, who missed a consolation by Poyet hooking in a volley from just inside the box. Too little too late. 

Poor performances from the normally reliable Spurs defence. Richards in particular, but King and Perry both had off days too. Anderton worked hard in a number of roles in midfield with little support. Davies never got going and the strikers failed to get a strike on goal on too many occasions.

07.02.2001 FA Cup Fourth Round.  Away   Won  4-2

The omens for this match were mixed: Yes, the year does end in “1”.  No, Spurs have not won away all season against a Premiership club,  we seem to struggle in London derbies, we haven’t scored for four games. Yes, … eerr, that’s it !

The journey form the West End through the Blackwall Tunnel to the Valley was a good one, topped off by finding a blinding parking spot.  Maybe this was to be our night and things got even better when I found a dodgy kebab shop which delivered my evening meal of medium donner in no time at all !

On entering the ground, it became apparent that this was a game where the expectancy level was diametrically opposite to the away form that we have displayed this season.  Everyone seemed upbeat, talking abut the game – Sixth round here we come should we win tonight.  You could almost smell the tarmac of the M4 to Wales.

Charlton (for those of you who weren’t there – you know who I mean) have one of those retractable tunnels for when the teams run out.  After tonight’s game, GG will probably ask for one at each home game from the dressing room to the dugout.  As the teams lined up, I (and a number of Spurs fans) commented on what appeared at the time to be GG’s latest masterplan.  Firstly, to call Lord Steen Carr and Na Na Hey Hey Chrissie Armstrong back into the squad and then leave them on the bench alongside Matt Etherington (who showed more creativity in the 20+ minutes he was on the pitch last Saturday than the entire rest of the team put together) seemed rather strange.

Secondly, Gary Doherty, who GG has publicly pronounced a better centre half than centre forward (as his recent displays have shown), was starting up front; Ledley King, who GG has publicly stated thinks is a better midfielder started on the left hand side of the back three and Luke Young, who has excelled at centre half or anywhere in the back three, started as left wing back.  Well, as one of the scum supporters down the road once said, “George knows”.

After only three minutes, Sully was called into action to stop Svensson but he and the hesitant Perry/Anderton defensive combination were at fault less than 10 minutes later, when Spurs fan Chris Powell nipped in to head Charlton into the lead.

This was the lead for the anti-GG mob to start baying for his blood.  It got so bad that two fans (one pro and one anti-GG) around me started spitting and hurling abuse at each other before the Old Bill steamed in and carted one of them away.  This was to set the tone for the entire evening with the Anti-GG mob far more vocal.  it is a sad indictment of our club at the moment that one man has divided the fans like no-one else before him.  Instead of supporting the team, people are more concerned about having a pop at GG.

We all have our uncertainties about the uneasy relationship that we have with our manager, but it is to the detriment of the team to express these during the game to the exclusion of chanting to encourage the team. Whatever we may think of him let’s get behind the team during the game.  Let’s save the criticism for the pub, websites and fanzines.

To be fair, Spurs came back well after this shattering blow and created a fair number of excellent chances.  However, as we know well as of late it is out inability to put the ball in the net which is letting us down.  No-one is this a bigger problem for than our diminutive Ukrainian, who squandered at least two good chances in the first half.  It is obvious he is lacking in confidence as well as protection from the referee.

As the first half grew older, a number of the younger players started to grow in confidence.  In particular, Luke Young, Ledley King and Gary Doherty – maybe GG isn’t so mad after all !

Luke Young especially epitomises to me what we want in a young Spurs player :  confidence, speed, ability to pass, positioning, good in the air for his size.  In fact, I am sure that I am not alone in saying that based on this season’s form so far, I would rather have him in the back three or four than Chris Perry, who appears to have suffered a complete lack of form.  His distribution is soooo bad that it makes Sol’s look good at times.

The second half started poorly for Spurs, with us making a series of misplaced passes.  Within five minutes you could have got a good price for your season ticket Cup Final voucher when once again poor defending gifted the Addicks another goal that they didn’t really have to work that hard for. 

Now the anti-GG boys really started to get to work.  Listen guys, I am as passionate as the next man and hate to see us playing this sterile shit hoofing game every week.  But having to sit amongst you whilst we have the piss taken out of us by Charlton/(insert this week’s opposing team’s name) fans kills me just as much.  “F*** Off, You’re An A***nal fan” will not get the team going and just gives the opposing fans more to throw back at us.  As I said earlier, save it for before or after the game.

At 0-2 down, it looked grim but I didn’t think we were out of it.  However, despite the fact that the subs bench was more encouraging than usual, Rocket Ronnie was nowhere to be seen.  But what followed in the next half an hour or so was a true example of why we are the Tottenham and we are the best.  It was why we will always want to follow Spurs rather than the chosen teams of those smug fickle b******s at the other end of the Seven Sisters Road or the mishmash of Nazis/Hooray Henrys from the supposed posh part of London.

The rapisly improving Gary Doherty started to impose himself on the Charlton defence in a way that they could not cope with.  It was with one such run that he cut inside from the right and put in a hard, low cross that the over-rated Rufus could only turn into his own net.  Don’t believe what you read in the papers that this was lucky – if Rufus hadn’t got to it, Nice but Dim would have popped it in at the far post.

Now it was time for the Spurs fans to at last chant and sing as one.  Within five minutes, we were awarded a free-kick about 25 yards out.  With our recent record with free-kicks outside the box (who can forget Stephen Clemence’s classic imitation of a four year old kicking a football from Saturday’s game ?), we weren’t expecting anything.  Wonder of wonders, Dazza stroked home a beauty that squirmed under the body of the much maligned Sasa Ilic.

We had barely stopped celebrating when Leo burst through to put us 3-2 up.  This really was the cue for the Tottenham fans to go mental.  For all the bad times that we have had to suffer (and by God there has been enough of them over the past 10 years or so), it is all worthwhile when you have a five minute spell like we had.

For the next 10-15 minutes we finally got our Tottenham back – one-touch passes into feet, movement off the ball, confidence – it was a joy to behold.  As was taking the p**s out of the Charlton fans, who had so merrily berated us only 10 minutes beforehand.

In truth, we could (and should) have had more – Sergei missed a sitter after 70 minutes to make the game safe.  However, he got the goal that could kick-start his season (where have I heard that before) with 8 minutes left – a nonchalant flick over the goalie from Man of the Match Doherty’s through ball.

It only remained for us to wave the Charlton supporters goodbye and to let them know that we could see them sneaking out.

A great evening amd a typical Spurs cup performance.  If only we can take this forward into Saturday’s game away at Man City.  However, for now, we will bathe in the afterglow of tonight’s entertainment – a word not commonly used to describe our teams as of late.

And let us not forget :  “It’s Lucky For Spurs When The Year … ” !

03.02.2001 Premier League.  Home    Drew   0-0

Another goalless afternoon, so nothing unusual there, but no excitement, that was something new for the home crowd.  The away form that has plagued the team this season has come home and although the side are still not scoring nor conceding, the bits in between are missing.

The goalmouth action restricted itself to a Freund shot that was saved and one which went past the post, a Leonhardsen break into the box (thanks to an astute pass from Rebrov) which he couldn’t wrap his foot around and a Booth effort that was blocked by a lunging defender.  Sullivan was forced to dive smartly at his near post as Klaus Jensen curled a free-kick at goal when a cross was expected and in the second half, he denied Bartlett in a one on one, when the ball broke for him off Sol’s shinpad.  Tottenham’s best chance came when Sol freed Stephen Carr … oh, no, it was Steffen Freund breaking up the right wing.  His low pull back into the box found Rebrov, but his low effort was straight at Ilic. It was a poor finish.  Leo headed wide with Ilic needlessly and dramatically diving across his goal in a bid to impart some thrill into the match.  Apart from that the keepers were left to collect easy crosses and clear back-passes.

In midfield the ball was given away charitably and mis-hit towards non-existent forwards.  Defenders were happy to clear the ball anywhere and Spurs were committed to using the aerial power of Andy Booth by humping long balls in his general direction.  The loan player didn’t do badly considering he has only been at the club for four days.  He put in a lot of energy in the first half and consequently faded a bit in the second, but won a few headers and looked willing, if not particularly familiar with his team-mates or surroundings.

Another point nearer safety and still floating around in mid-table, so we should be happy with that, but then there could be so much more.

16.09.2000 Premier League.  Away    Lost  0-1 

If Spurs are to be any sort of force in the Premier League then they should not lose at places like The Valley. This was a chance to pick up three valuable away points which Tottenham spurned. Chance after chance went begging whilst a defensive cock up gave Charlton their goal.
The team included Vega, although Perry was named on the bench and Taricco continued for Thatcher who was also on the bench. George also played three strikers away from home in Ferdinand, Iversen and Rebrov although the latter two clearly had midfield duties.
In the early stages it was an open game; a little too open from Spurs point of view. There were regular chances at each end. For Tottenham Rebrov brought a good save from Kiely, then Iversen forced the keeper into a good save. This was to be the story of the afternoon with Kiely making a string of excellent saves.
Sullivan was called upon in the Spurs goal when Johansson and then Rufus were allowed to get free. Vega was back to his worst. He plays with a passion only matched by his clumsiness. His speed of thought is almost non existent and his presence in the defence is a constant worry to the Spurs fans. He certainly keeps us on the edge of our seats for all the wrong reasons.
As the half wore on, Spurs started to put together some reasonable football and a fine move with some slick passing ended with Taricco dinking his shot over the Charlton keeper onto the bar. Back came Charlton to also hit the woodwork but only with the assistance of a Freund deflection.
In the 39th minute a harmless looking through ball was heading towards Sol Campbell. For some inexplicable reason when Row Z looked the best option, Sol chose to sell a dummy and step over the ball. This left an astonished Johansson completely in the clear and he drilled his shot past Sullivan. The Spurs response was to push forward and a strong penalty appeal for a foul on Sherwood was denied by referee Jeff Winter.

The second half was completely dominated by Spurs. There was almost constant pressure but to no avail. The Charlton players got behind the ball in numbers and those efforts they did not deflect seemed to fly straight at their keeper. From one scramble the ball fell to Ferdinand who drove in from 12 yards and looked certain to score. Unfortunately he had driven the ball straight at Kiely. Shortly afterwards Les got free and this time headed straight at Kiely. Then Iversen headed wide as the goal yawned in front of him. Sherwood tried another pathetic attempt to win a penalty which the referee correctly waved away. It started to look as if Spurs would not score if they played all night.
Just to stir the Spurs fans up George then made two masterful substitution’s sending on Clemence and Perry for Sherwood and Leohardsen. OK, Tim and Leo had not been playing particularly well but even those with the most vivid imagination would find it hard to believe Clemence and Perry were going to conjure up a goal.
There will no doubt be plenty of excuses about this second away defeat: Charlton worked hard, their goalkeeper was outstanding and we made plenty of chances. All of these are true. The fact remains however that we conceded a stupid goal and despite all the chances our strikers were not good enough to find the net.
The Spurs team do not appear to be playing with a desire and passion to win. There is also a strange and uneasy relationship with many of the fans which is not helping.
A number of the players also still seem to be short of their best. Sherwood looks a yard off the pace still. Leonhardsen is weak in the tackle and when he and Taricco play down the left both have to check back to cross the ball with their right foot. Iversen is still searching for his first goal, Ferdinand needs too much time and Rebrov seems bemused by what is going on around him when playing away from White Hart Lane.
Come on George sort them out. Think yourself lucky Ken Bates is not your Chairman.

With Charlton Athletic hovering above the relegation zone, the early goal from Mark Kinsella with five minutes gone, boosted the home team’s hopes, but Steffen Iversen levelled the scores in the 57th minute in the pouring rain. The Norwegian striker gave the ball to Tim Sherwood and got it back to sweep his shot past Andy Petterson in the Charlton goal.

Twelve minutes after the equaliser, Sol Campbell dived in to meet a corner from Darren Anderton and his header flew into the net.  Two goals in the final couple of minutes from wingers Jose Dominguez and David Ginola handed Spurs a 4-1 win over the Addicks, who were relegated at the end of the season.

02.11.1998 Premier League.  

It had bad omens written all over it when I walked into the ground to find we had only one fit first choice forward. Playing with only Armstrong up front was a sign of how thin our squad is, especially when you couple that with Ginola’s suspension finding Sinton as his replacement. Well, the game started quite brightly for Tottenham, with Sol having a header cleared off the line, but while we had most of the possession, it was Charlton who struck first with their first shot on target. An astute ball inside Carr found Mendonca in space and his shot was deflected onto the post by Vega and Baardsen. Unfortunately for Spurs, the ball fell perfectly for Hunt to poke it into an empty net. It was against the run of play, but Charlton had restricted Tottenham to a few shots on goal and Armo was struggling with the lone role in attack.

The second half saw Spurs roar out of the starting blocks. A slick move down the right involving Fox, Carr and Anderton, resulted in Dazza’s shrewd pass inside the full-back for Carr to run on and cross low into the six yard box. The ball eluded everyone, except Nielsen coming in late at the far post, sliding the ball into the goal. This signalled a spell of Tottenham pressure, which resulted in the second goal for Armstrong who headed a whipped in cross by Edinburgh from the left wing. At this stage, there only looked one winner, but after failing to grab a third, Spurs were pushed back and Edinburgh was pushed off the ball on the wing, leaving Jones to cross low to Hunt who somehow steered the ball in for the equaliser. Shortly after, Justin was turned again on the edge of the box, but this time Jones’ shot crept past the post. A late rally saw Campbell head a corner millimetres past the post, but in the end, the draw was the right result. Charlton displayed the battling spirit that had earned them draws at places such as Newcastle, Arsenal and Liverpool. For Tottenham, it was a chance to go fourth in the table, but with a below strength team out, it was a better result than it could have been.

Spurs stormed to a 3-0 win at White Hart Lane.  Taking the initiative with an early goal from John Polston, his only goal for the club, in the 22nd minute, the 25-1 long shot as first scorer gave Tottenham the basis to go on to a well-deserved victory. Gary Lineker scored a 57th minute goal, while the Spurs scoring was rounded off by David Howells who struck in the 78th minute to wrap up the three points.

Spurs’ visit to Selhurst Park garnered three points as goals from Paul Gascoigne, Mitchell Thomas and Gary Lineker helped us to a 3-1 win.  Paul Williams netted for the Addicks.

The first half failed to produce a goal, but Paul Williams put the home side ahead in the 50th minute, but having come off the bench, Mitchell Thomas hooked a long throw from Steve Sedgley over his shoulder to find the net and equalise in the 74th minute.  At this point Paul Gascoigne grasped the game by the scruff of the neck and his direct running hurt Charlton.  Firstly, his run attracted red shirts and allowed space for Gary Lineker to receive the ball and he held off a defender to beat the keeper and give Spurs the lead.  Gazza’s second run left Charlton players in his wake and he finished with a drive into the top left hand corner of the net five minutes after Lineker’s goal to wrap up the Spurs win.

03.04.1989 Steve Gritt’s Testimonial ended in a 3-2 win for Charlton Athletic at the Valley.

The home team took the lead with Paul Williams scoring but Paul Stewart’s cross provided the chance for Paul Walsh to head Tottenham level before Stewart turned the game in our favour firing home after a strong run with the ball.  It only took a minute for Steve Mackenzie to make it 2-2 and then he gave Charlton the lead with a good shot.  However, right on before half time Paul Stewart finished off Paul Allen’s good approach work to make it 3-3 and allowing the crowd to get their breath back in the interval.

Stewart was hoping for a hat-trick when Nayim was brought down in the box and although he hit the 50th minute spot-kick well, the keeper saved it and that allowed an 82nd minute goal from Mike Flanagan to settle the match in Charlton’s favour as he made it 4-3.

13.12.1987 This match saw Charlton Athletic take the points in the first competitive early Sunday morning game that Spurs staged at White Hart Lane.

Tony Parks had made a very good save to push Paul Williams’ volley onto the post before Clive Allen went close with a free-kick an Chris Waddle force the Addicks keeper to save from another free-kick.

Seven minutes remained when David Campbell scored Charlton’s winner for their first win at the Lane since 1955, but it was not without controversy.  Parks had gathered the ball from Chris Fairclough’s back-pass when Williams kicked him in the face so hard that the keeper’s bottom teeth went through his tongue and he lost a couple of teeth.  The Spurs keeper was almost unconscious as Campbell tapped into an empty net, but the referee allowed the goal and did not even speak to Williams about the challenge.  s.

Spurs suffered a big defeat at the Valley, despite Spurs having the best of this Second Division game until twenty minutes from time.

Hugh McAuley put the home side ahead in the second minute, but Peter Taylor headed home Don McAllister’s left wing cross to equalise.  Taylor could have given Spurs a win when John Pratt put him in on goal, but the winger’s shot went wide of the post and within minutes, Mike Flanagan had given Athletic a 2-1 lead in the 70th minute.

Completing his hat-trick in the 78th and 81st minutes, Flanagan gave Charlton a convincing score-line that the play did not really reflect.  The game was marred by Mark Penfold suffering a broken leg.

07.01.1961 On a heavily sanded White Hart Lane pitch, Spurs overcame Charlton in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

Les Allen fired Tottenham ahead with a shot form outside the penalty area and he doubled the lead, scoring from Danny Blanchflower’s pass into the box.  Charlton got back into the game when Stuart Leary tucked the ball away in a goalmouth scramble, but before half-time Terry Dyson cut in from the left to score and make it 3-1.

The second half was a lot tighter and the only goal saw the Addicks narrow the final score to 3-2 when Leary created an opportunity for Sam Lawrie in the right side of the penalty box in the first minute after the restart.

Spurs beat a relegation bound Charlton Athletic 6-2 at White Hart Lane in this First Division encounter.  The first half of the match starred Charlton goalkeeper Reed, who stopped a number of shots on goal denying Spurs until two minutes before the break, when George Robb nodded in Terry Medwin’s corner.

Early in the second half, Brooks was brought down in the penalty area and a spot-kick was awarded, which was taken by Tommy Harmer who struck the inside of the post, only to see the ball travel across goal from where it was cleared away by a red shirted player.  Harmer soon rectified his miss, scoring in the eight minutes after the break with Brooks adding to the score four minutes after that goal and another eight minutes later, Terry Medwin made it 4-0.  The crowd celebrated this goal, as it was the team’s 100th of the season.

Two minutes passed before Harmer put the ball in the net and then Danny Blanchflower put it into his own net to give Charlton a glimmer of hope, which was increased when Leary scored five minutes later.  However, Bobby Smith has the last word scoring number six with two minutes to go, pinning Charlton to the bottom of the table.

Spurs and Charlton Athletic played out a 1-1 draw at The Valley on Good Friday.

Having started the match well, Spurs suffered a setback when Ron Reynolds took a kick to the head and needed treatment for concussion, so Tony Marchi took over between the sticks.  Tottenham took the lead with Danny Blanchflower releasing Johnny Brooks with a through pass that he converted with a good shot past Duff, who had kept Spurs out until then.  Reynolds was fit enough to come back on, but only as a right winger and before the interval, Marchi was beaten by Hewie’s long-range shot that brought the home side level.

Reynolds did well out in his wide position and Spurs attacked looking for the winner, but Charlton matched them and Marchi was called upon to make a few saves from the Charlton forwards.

Twenty minutes in and Spurs took the lead through George Robb, when he nipped in to pick off a back pass and slipped the ball past Sam Bartram.  Charlton’s Stuart Leary converted Bobby Ayre’s pass just four minutes prior to the interval, scoring past Reynolds from a narrow angle.

The match-winner was Len Duquemin, who scored the winner through the keeper’s legs six minutes after the half-time break to give Spurs a welcome away win.

Spurs were hit by injuries to Withers (sustained in the previous game against Manchester united) and Johnny Gavin (in training), but were able to call upon fit again Eddie Baily and Johnny Brooks to face a Charlton Athletic side pushing up near the top of the table at White Hart Lane.

Spurs dominated a fast-moving first half, but with an error in defence, Charlton capitalised to score against the run of play on 18 minutes and take the single goal lead into the interval.

Brooks pulled Tottenham level about 20 minutes into the second half, but nine minutes after that Harry Clarke diverted a Kiernan cross past Ditchburn to restore the Addicks’ lead.  Spurs strove to get back into the game, but a through pass for Leary saw the striker convert to make it 3-1, but Clarke’s header at the right end from a Walters’ corner six minutes later narrowed the gap, but the team could not quite force a draw and left the team towards the bottom of the Division One table.

26.08.1953 Division 1     Home     Won    3-1

A big crowd gathered at White Hart Lane for this London derby with Charlton Athletic, which ended with a valuable 3-1 win for Tottenham.

A first minute goal came after Ron Burgess pounced on the ball before moving forward with it and laying it off to George Robb.  The forward moved it on to Walters, who returned the pass and Robb struck the ball first time and it flew past a stunned Sam Bartram to give Tottenham the lead after only 35 seconds.

That was the only goal of the first half, but the lead was doubled 17 minutes into the second half, with Robb turning provider for Baily to fire home.  There was still time for Kiernan to take advantage of a mix-up between Ditchburn and Clarke to score a consolation.  It was little consolation for the Addicks, as Chamberlain failed to get up from a challenge by Duquemin and was stretchered off being examined in the dressing room where it was found he had chipped a bone in his ankle.  It put a dampener on the game, which had been played in a good spirit.

A single strike from Sonny Walters was enough to win this First Division match for second place Spurs over Charlton Athletic, who had to draft in full back Charlie Revell at the last moment.
