29.04.2000 Derby and Spurs fought out a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane with Horacio Carbonari’s drilled shot giving the visitors the lead, before Stephen Clemence scored his first Tottenham goal by bundling the ball over the line with minutes remaining to earn a point.

For a team with nothing to play for Tottenham certainly lived up to that tag today.  With the lack of go in the side and the boos floating down from the stands, it was just like old times.  Playing against ten men after Schnoor had been dismissed for his second bookable offence, it was only Derby who really deserved anything from the game.

Starting reasonably brightly, Tottenham almost created a carbon copy of last week’s Chris Armstrong goal against Wimbledon, when Anderton lofted a chip into the Derby box, which was flighted over the defence.  Stephen Carr had continued his run and met the ball with the full force of his right boot.  Unfortunately, unlike Armo’s shot last week, his effort struck the bar at the Paxton Road end and bounced safely away.  A repeat was almost effected later in the half, when Darren set up Iversen, but his early volley went high and wide.  Apart from that, there was little from Spurs, save for a low Anderton shot which went wide.  However, Derby started with a point at kick-off and were determined to hold onto that.  Playing a sweeper and five in midfield, they relied on corners and set-pieces for anything they could get.  A succession of corners were cleared as they tried to use their aerial advantage, but their best chances came from a Delap long shot and a neat Burton-Christie move that saw a back heel put the young Derby striker in, but Walker denied him with a smart low save.  Christie did pose a few problems for Spurs with his pace and he continued to be a thorn in the side of our defence for most of the game.

The controversy in the match happened with about 40 minutes gone.  Schnoor was behind Armstrong and as the ball was played through to him wide on the right by Anderton, he turned Schnoor and was away down the line.  However, Schnoor decided that he could not catch him, so dragged him back by his shirt and shorts.  As the player fell to the floor and the ref ran over, Schnoor surely knew his fate, having been booked for a deliberate handball earlier in the game.  A red card was shown and the German defender was not happy to go, but why did he think he would get away with it ?  The dismissal did not help Spurs a lot, as Derby played like ten men, making it very hard to play against, but then Tottenham were easier to play against with eleven.  There was no utilisation of the space left by the missing man and they did not make Derby work hard to get the ball back, Spurs seemed happy to give it to Derby on many occasions.

One such presentation of the ball in the second half, lead to a period of sustained pressure, when the visiting forwards were allowed to get past Spurs defenders with great ease.  Especially in the box, where a couple of last gasp blocks stopped their moves.  Resulting from one of these was a corner on the right and a long cross from Christie found Carbonari on the end of it and he unleashed a low volley, which sped into the net.  The crowd started to get agitated as Spurs looked forlorn and their mood did not improve when Ginola and Iversen were taken off to be replaced by McEwen and Etherington.  Davies, who came on for the anonymous Korsten at half-time, had a header just wide from a Carr cross and the same player provided McEwen with a header that only just cleared the bar.  The former Dulwich Hamlet striker also had a couple of other shots go wide, one of which he should have hit the target with.  As the game wore on, it looked as though the game would be Derby’s and deservedly so, but they tried to kill time by taking an eternity to take every place-kick and throw-in, while Craig Burley showed his professionalism by running the ball into the corners to run down time.  This became their downfall, as with on last surge, Simon Davies beat his man cleverly and won a corner on the right.  Anderton’s kick caused confusion in the box and the ball was headed goalwards by Solman, only for Clemence to stop it in front of the line.  Luckily, it bounced nicely for him to send a cheeky back heel into the net for the equaliser.

If the truth be told, it looked like the Spurs players were looking towards the summer and didn’t play well at all.  When we struggle to beat Derby with ten men at home, you realise that a lot of work has to be done, even with the players we have before we can seriously look towards a challenge for any trophy.  Two more games left, so it’s not long now boys.

16.10.1999 Premier League     Away     Won     1-0

Derby are struggling this season and this was reflected in the empty seats around the excellent Pride Park Stadium. The Spurs end was full and in good voice. Jim Smith is a good manager and despite their poor results of late Derby would still be hard to beat. They included new signing (Oh how we would like one of those) Lee Morris for his debut.

There were a few surprises in the Spurs team. Ledley King came in to the centre of midfield to partner Alan Nielsen. This pair replaced Tim Sherwood who was on the bench and Steffen Freund who was not. Steffen Iversen was fit enough to join Chris Armstrong up front. The best news was that Sol Campbell was back to resume his partnership with Chris Perry. A clean sheet was the outcome, the first in the league this season, need I say more?

Derby made a lively start and had chances to go ahead but lacked confidence in front of goal. Walker also looked steady as they were causing some problems down the flanks which saw both Taricco and Carr receive yellow cards. Gradually Ginola began to pose more of a threat and in the 37th minute he went on a run unique to David. Charging down the left side he teased and beat three Derby defenders and sent over an excellent cross which was swinging away from the keeper. A Derby defender got his head to the ball but only touched it on to a grateful Chris Armstrong at the far post who dived to head home.

Given the problems Chris has been having with some of the Spurs boo boys it was good to see him score albeit his celebrations were a little muted.

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. Derby made a few chances but never really looked like scoring. Spurs came close to increasing their lead when Ginola went on another amazing run which saw him take out three Derby players with speedy acceleration before crossing. Leonhardsen arrived at the far post to head down but wide. Iversen was then through on the keeper who charged out of his area only for Steffen to lob him. Armstrong was a whisker away from providing the finishing touch.

Somehow the fourth official found 5 minutes of extra time during which there were a couple of scares but Spurs hung on to collect three points. They finished the game with four centre backs on the field !

After a couple of early mistakes Ledley King did well for a centre back making his full debut in midfield. Perry and Campbell looked solid. Carr again did well and Armstrong worked hard. Ginola’s contribution was outstanding and he was even involved in tackling back on occasions.

George Graham also got involved towards the end on the game in one of his touchline remonstrations with referee Durkin which included much pointing and arm waving after Durkin had ignored a foul on Taricco.

A good three points and a repeat of last seasons result although I did not see Sol scuffling in the tunnel this year.

27.02.1999 Premier League     Home     Drew     1-1

Another game, another draw. Another two points lost, because in truth there can rarely have been a game in which one team has so much of the possession and fails to win. From the start, Spurs had opportunities to score with the following being the best : -.

  • Armstrong through, but pulled the ball across the face of the goal.
  • Armstrong hits the ball too close to the keeper and he saves.
  • Iversen through and forces the ball just wide.
  • Freund hits a hard drive over the bar.
  • Ginola’s low cross is diverted goalwards by Schnoor and the keeper saves, then kicks the ball away while laying on the floor.
  • Anderton’s fierce 25 yarder is pushed up onto the bar and Prior beats Ginola to the rebound.
  • From an Anderton corner the ball is headed on and cleared off the line by Carbonari.
  • Ginola heads a corner into Hoult’s arms.
  • An Edinburgh cross eludes everyone coming in and there is nobody at the far post.
  • Iversen stretches to meet a cross at the far post and puts it over the bar.
  • Vega had a clear header from a corner, but it went across the goal rather than towards it.
  • Ginola whipped in a shot from the left which went over.

There was little for Walker to do except field back passes and run out of his box to clear for most of the game. The chances for Derby in the first half fell to Wanchope and Carsley, but they were both wide. That all changed just after the break when a free-kick by Dorigo was nodded back across the area by Wanchope and Burton was alone to steer it past Walker. There wasn’t really much of another sniff of a goal for the Rams. It was only when Dominguez came on and ran at the Derby defence (like he did on his home debut last season) that things started to happen. His first contribution was to set up Sherwood with a ball slipped through the back line and Tim shot low past Hoult from just inside the area.

The only other thing of note in a match that lacked the thrust of Wednesday’s Cup replay, was the erratic refereeing of Jeff Winter. Being there, it appeared that Justin had got to the ball first in a challenge where both players were moving fast and were fully committed. The television evidence showed he did get there a little late and therefore his second yellow saw him leave the field. However, just prior to this the ref had taken it upon himself to treat Deon Burton like a little child, when he discovered (in the 86th minute) that he had been wearing a chain. He made him take it off and then pass it to one of the Derby staff off the pitch. not content with this, he made Burton leave the field when Spurs had a corner. His protests earned him a booking. Then shortly after Edinburgh’s dismissal, Wanchope, already on a yellow, hacked Taricco down from behind to concede a free-kick, but the referee let this pass unpunished. The lack of consistency and with this referee, the lack of common sense in allowing play to continue when the team fouled still had possession (and that applied to both sides) made it a frustrating afternoon of stuttering football. Do we really pay our money to see a man in black rule over all he surveys in an overbearing manner ?? No, we don’t. We realise that laws have to be enforced, but a little thought could go a long way to making the whole event more enjoyable.

03.10.1998 Division 1      Away     Won     1-0

There were free Yorkie bars at the turnstile from the match sponsor and a full Pride Park for this clash with Spurs whose fans were  looking for a continuation of the spirit and passion seen in their last match v Leeds. We were not disappointed. Spurs started the livelier side. Early chances fell to Anderton and Nielsen who were both unlucky, Fox was put through on goal and spurned an excellent opportunity. His effort was well struck but low and close to Hoult who saved easily. Nielsen, playing wide left, had an excellent hardworking first half and was booked for a particularly robust no-nonsense challenge. Ginola did not look 100% and played in fits and starts without ever really opening up. Baardsen made a spectacular save from Baiano’s free kick and a number of solid saves from long range efforts.  The ungainly Wanchope was a constant threat and is incredibly awkward to mark. Vega proved he is the man for the occasion and did as well as probably anyone has done in looking after Paulo, who was obviously not enjoying the attention of Ramon judging by the way he constantly whinged to all around him.

Half Time 0-0.

Spurs maintained the momentum after the break and took a well deserved lead on 60 minutes. Carr was fouled wide on the right. Ginola was quick to see the potential and from a quickly taken kick the magnificent Sol Campbell raced forward and dipped his head to meet the ball to send a header to the far corner of the net, ‘One nil to the Tottenham’ sang the Spurs fans in retaliation to the earlier predictable cry from Derby fans ‘Are you Arsenal in disguise’. Following the goal Derby had their best spell and piled on the pressure. The Spurs defence stood resolute (Haven’t said that often lately !), Baardsen looked unbeatable and made a further superb point blank save with his feet from Wanchope. Gradually Derby realised this was not their day and it was Tottenham who came close to scoring again when Armstrong, on for Ginola,  hit a post and late sub Clemence just chipped over. All round a fine performance but the team does need strengthening with priorities at left back and central midfield. Fox will be lucky to retain his place.  A welcome and deserved 3 points taken from the team lying second at the start of the day. Well done David Pleat.  Now over to you G.G.

31.01.1998 Derby grabbed an undeserved win over Spurs in the Premier League at Pride Park.

Within seconds of the start, Les Ferdinand hit a scorching shot that rebounded back off the crossbar, but a goal by Dean Sturridge, seizing on Wilson’s header, gave the Rams the lead against the run of play 25 minutes in.  A goal soon after the break was created by Jurgen Klinsmann for Ruel Fox to stick away the equaliser, but on 77 minutes, Paulo Wanchope steered the ball past Walker for the winner.

15.10.1997 Spurs had a struggle to overcome Derby County in this League Cup Third Round tie.  Jose Dominguez and Chris Armstrong had early chances before a 21st minute goal put Tottenham ahead.  Ginola’s strength held off three defenders to curl a shot past Mart Poom in the Derby goal.

Armstrong went close in the next attack when he hooked a shot over his shoulder and it went the wrong side of the post by inches.  However, five minutes after going ahead Gary Rowett’s free-kick was flying harmlessly out of play, but it inadvertently bounced off Paulo Wanchope to divert it past Walker for an equaliser.  Ginola tested Poom’s reflexes twice and Fox’s cross saw Robert Kozluk clear very well from under his bar as Armstrong looked to convert it.

Chances were being created at both ends, with Sinton at one end and Paul Trollope and Robin van der Laan at the other going close.  In the 70th minute, Wanchope fired a shot past Walker at the near post to put Derby ahead and although Spurs pushed for a leveller, Armstrong failed to reach a low cross from Ginola, the French winger then hit a low shot that Poom saved and Dominguez’s volley hit Poom with a volley.

23.08.1997 A diving Colin Calderwood header grabbed the three Premiership points for Tottenham in this game at White Hart Lane.

Spurs made a lot of goal-scoring chances, including a very good save from Poom from a 14th minute Ferdinand effort, but had to wait for Sinton’s free-kick to be converted by the Spurs defender for a goal right on the half-time whistle.

A failure to convert the opportunities could have cost Tottenham and Derby pressed with Robin van der Laan, Deon Burton Igor Stimac, Christian Dailly and Ashley Ward all going close , but the penalty award near the end for a foul on Dominguez saw David Howells fire over the bar to leave the final score 1-0.

22.03.1997 Tottenham’s visit to the Baseball Ground ended their good run of results, with Derby County winning 4-2.

Allan Nielsen’ had a chance to score in only the second minute, but skied it over the bar and then suddenly, we were 0-2 behind.  Robin van der laan scored in the ninth minute with a shot from the edge of the area through a crowd of players and then Derby broke from a Spurs attack in the 22nd minute, as Chris Powell sent John Trollope through on goal to score.

Andy Sinton suffered concussion after a clash and Ronny Rosenthal replaced him, pulling a goal back just three minutes after coming on.  Dean Austin’s free-kick was headed down by Teddy Sheringham for Ronny to strike a volley past the helpless Martin Taylor on 29 minutes.

Stephen Carr fed the ball in to Steffen Iversen, whose shot was stopped by the keeper, but the loose ball was knocked into the net from close range by Jason Dozzell with 50 minutes gone.  Spurs were taking control of the game, but two goals in as many minutes turned the match in Derby’s favour.  In the 67th minute, Dean Sturridge hit a shot that was deflected leaving Ian Walker stranded and then Ashley Ward scored from close range a minute later to put the game beyond Tottenham’s reach.

27.10.1993 A tight League Cup Fourth Round match was won by just one goal from Nicky Barmby, scored in the 71st minute of the tie.  Spurs strung a good move together to produce a fine chip from Steve Sedgley that hit the crossbar and came out to find Barmby, who head home the rebound.

Spurs were in the ascendancy, forcing Martin Taylor to save from Barmby and Dozzell, before Samways struck a shot against the bar late on in the game.  Erik Thorstvedt also had to be sharp to keep out two efforts from Paul Simpson.

A classy goal by Stewart in the fourth minute, taking Gary Lineker’s pass to leave Peter Shilton helpless with his finish had given Spurs a good start, but, despite controlling the game, Dean Saunders scored in the 51st minute to make it 1-1 and Paul Goddard completed the smash and grab win with a goal a quarter of an hour from the end.

11.03.1989 Dean Saunders hit a first half goal to give the Rams a 33rd minute lead at the Baseball Ground, but a Paul Gascoigne equaliser in the 58th minute continued Tottenham’s unbeaten run of five matches.

Saunders took Paul Goddard’s flick on and blasted it past Erik Thorstvedt from long range, but the Rams lead was wiped out just before the hour when Gascoigne expertly hit his free-kick up and over the wall to beat Peter Shilton all ends up to tie the match up at 1-1.

20.12.1987 Division 1     Away     Won     2-1

Terry Venables earned his first Division One points as Spurs manager with a 2-1 away win over Derby County.

John Gregory had put the Rams ahead in the 38th minute and Derby were pushing hard for a second, when Tottenham lost captain Gary Mabbutt with a cut forehead.  With Chris Hughton replacing him, Gary Stevens moved to the centre of defence and Spurs managed the re-shuffle until the break, when Paul Moran came on for Paul Allen.  Tony Parks had produced a number of good saves to keep the home side at bay.

It was Moran’s header from a Chris Waddle corner that was blocked and Nico Claesen followed in to score our 67th minute equaliser.  Soon after Claesen looked as though he was clear through the middle, but a bad tackle ended his progress and almost his match, as he continued to play the remainder of the match in great pain.  However, the pace of “Sparrow” Moran saw him tear away from defenders to provide a chance for Clive Allen to finish in typical style with just eight minutes on the clock.

Derby County wanted the result more than Spurs to win 2-1 at the Baseball Ground.

Starting the match without the injured Barry Daines, Tottenham had to recall Mark Kendall from Chesterfield where he was on loan and the team was also missing the injured Terry Yorath.  Although Spurs started the match well, Aiden McCaffrey’s 17th minute goal turned the game in Derby’s favour.  It could have been 1-1 at half-time had Gerry Armstrong not put his header wide and Mark Falco was narrowly off target with another effort. 

Alan Biley’s diving header exposed defensive frailties too as the 49th minute goal left Tottenham further adrift.  Substitute Tony Galvin pulled a goal back in the 75th minute with a header from Armstrong’s ball into the area.  That produced a late spell of dominance, but the game had already gone for Spurs.

Tottenham went into the dressing room at half-time 2-1 ahead, when Martin Chivers scored just before the break.

Spurs were still in with a chance of victory even after Kevin Hector had pulled the score back to 2-2, with Graham Moseley preventing Jimmy Neighbour grabbing another Spurs goal, when he dived out at the Spurs winger, who had beaten David Nish to the ball.  However, a late Francis Lee header from a cross by Henry Newton stunned Spurs and handed Derby a win and two points.

Jimmy Neighbour scored just after half-time with a powerful shot that beat Colin Boulton, finishing off a move that was well worked by Ralph Coates, John Pratt and Martin Chivers.   The second goal by Neighbour was even better, ensuring Tottenham secured their first points of the season.

29.09.1973 Ralph Coates hit the single goal to win this match and to give their first home win of the season over Derby County. 

The midfielder stabbed home the ball from inside the six yard box as the blue shirted Derby players stood statuesque.  The first half had seen both sides create chances, but fail to make the most of them. Spurs continued in this vein in the second half, although it was John O’Hare who came closest to scoring with the Rams striker headed an opportunity narrowly wide.  Spurs could have added to their lead in the second half, when Alan Gilzean took the ball around Colin Boulton, but found David Nish in position to clear his effort off the goal-line..

07.02.1973 A titanic encounter with Derby County at White Hart Lane was settled in extra time, just when it looked as though Spurs had the FA Cup Fourth Round replay wrapped up. Martin Chivers’ early goal gave Spurs the early initiative, after Gilzean passed the ball out of his own area and five players were involved before Cyril Knowles’ cross was converted past Colin Boulton in the 20th minute.  Derby pressed forward for an equaliser, causing the Spurs defence problems with McGovern going close and Kevin Hector hitting the bar, with Archie Gemmill following up to have his shot kicked off the line.

Spurs went two ahead, when Chivers’ long throw was headed against the bar by Gilzean, who got up to force the ball over the line.  Things were going Tottenham’s way until the 72nd minute, when Hector hooked O’Hare’s pass into the net.  The game then swung the other way, with Mike England converting a penalty awarded for John McGovern’s handball.

Two minutes later, Roger Davies took a Webster throw and carved his way through a group of defenders to make it 2-3 and then the striker was picked out by O’Hare, turned and shot past Jennings to make it all square and to take the tie into extra-time.

The first fifteen minutes were tense, as Spurs tried to overcome the setback, but two minutes into the second period saw Derby go ahead for the first time.  Hector’s corner was headed home to complete Davies’ hat-trick and Derby’s route to the Fifth Round was confirmed when Davies returned the compliment for Hector to run through with seven minutes left and slot past Jennings to make the final score 5-3.

Spurs had the better of the first half, with Derby not imposing themselves on the visiting side, but making food poisoning victim Pat Jennings work hard to protect his goal.  Chivers produced a fierce shot that stunned Boulton in the Derby goal and it hit him and bounced out, but the keeper didn’t have much idea of how.  As Derby came into the game, Archie Gemmill fired in a shot that just cleared the bar, but in the 79th minute, Hennessey slipped up to present Chivers with a chance that he stuck away after Jimmy Pearce’s shot from Peters’ free-kick was blocked and ran loose in the area for the Spurs striker to fire home from eight yards out after Hennessey failed to clear.

The Rams poured forward and Spurs held out until the 85th minute, when a free-kick caused panic in the penalty area and Roger Davies reacted first to prod home the loose ball to make it 1-1.

A muddy pitch made playing flowing football difficult, but, with 20 minutes gone, Greaves got into the box unnoticed to head home Jimmy Pearce’s cross into the net to put Spurs ahead, then the legendary striker had two efforts disallowed before putting Gilzean away on the flank with a 30 yard pass.  Gilly crossed the ball in for Roger Morgan to convert for the second Spurs goal.
