Well, sometimes Tottenham really surprise you, don’t they ?  No, not going two down, but by coming back to win.  I know it was only Everton and I know they were plagued by injury, but that sort of response still takes some doing.  Of course, it doesn’t help when one layer limps off after 17 minutes (well, he has secured his place in the England squad) and another is replaced after 38 (because of injury or embarrassment ?).  However, Leo moving to his favoured right side and Taricco coming on at left-back seemed to help the balance, because the side lost it’s shape as well as most of it’s ideas inside the first forty minutes.  The defence had already left Jeffers unmarked on the penalty spot only to be let off by his incredible miss from ten yards out with only Sullivan to beat.  He made no such mistake when confronted with the Scotland keeper again after Thatcher hit a poor back pass with his right foot – obviously not the better of his two.  Spurs had started brightly and could have had a goal in the first minute, but the ball flashed across the Toffees goal three times without being stuck in.  Even Freund got a firm shot on target forcing Gerrard to grasp it at the second attempt.  Gazza received a warm welcome before the game from the Spurs fans and every time he took a corner he was cheered, but Freund’s attentions were winding him up and he played a few nice passes, but his overall contribution waned as the match progressed and he was lucky not to be booked for some of his “tackles”.  Just when it looked as though things had settled down, a half-cleared corner fell to Alexandersson, who hit a ripping half volley just over.  The escape was only temporary however, as Everton broke on the left and while Sherwood tried to show Nyarko onto his left foot, the big Ghanaian moved inside far too easily and shot low inside the post for 0-2.

At this stage, the fans were getting restless.  The referee made a strange decision – not the first of the night – and awarded Spurs a free-kick on the right as half-time approached.  Clemence swung the ball into the six yard box and Sol came from nowhere to meet it and hit it towards goal, but it came off the post.  How did he miss ?  A scramble followed, but the ball fell to Rebrov who shot into the net to pull one back.  His first goal wasn’t a classic, but then he was signed to put those sort of chances away.

The second half was an altogether different affair.  Spurs were looking to get back at Everton quickly and they played some nice passing football to open the visitors up.  They had to wait until about 15 minutes in, when after a point blank save by Gerrard from a Sol header, the ball hung in the air and as Les attacked it, Gravesen got there first with his hand.  The ref gave the penalty straight away, but consulted with his linesman before deciding not to punish any player for the offence.  Funny, I thought it was a red card offence.  With Dazza off the pitch, Rebrov strode up and coolly stroked the spot kick past the keeper.  Within a couple of minutes, Spurs were in the lead. A cross in from the right was missed by Ferdinand, mainly because his shirt was being pulled and another penalty should have been given, but Clemence retrieved the ball, crossed to Sherwood, whose header across goal fell to no-one in particular, but Les was first to it, leaving Weir anguished by the fact that he should have beaten the Spurs striker to the ball.  It wasn’t a hard shot, but it was enough to get into the net.  Following this, Leonhardsen has a shot heading for the top left corner of the net caught well by Gerrard and Taricco lobbed one just over.

The final whistle was greeted with relief by the Spurs fans as Everton had pushed on two forwards to chase the result, but in truth, a draw would have been a fairer result between two teams who were quite evenly matched.  I’m not complaining about all three points as they are the sort of games Tottenham have to win if they are to do well this season.

15.01.2000 Premier League     Away     Drew    2-2

Everton have not been beaten at Goodison in The Premier League this season but it was not until the 2nd minute of time added on that they equalised to preserve that record. Once again Spurs failed to hold the lead for the full game and surrendered in the dying minutes of the game just like they had at Chelsea.

It was the same Tottenham team that faced Chelsea although Korsten was on the bench allegedly.

A major talking point of the game subsequently featured on Match of the Day was the early appearance of a brown mongrel dog. At a point when Everton were leading one nil the dog appeared from the corner of the ground. For some time it raced around on the pitch and twice looked as if it would run into Walkers goal only to rush past the post. “Ooohhh” went the crowd on both occasions. The Spurs fans sang; “Nicky Barmby’s wife, Nicky Barmby’s wife, Nicky Barmby, Nicky Barmby, Nicky Barmby’s wife.”

Eventually the dog settled in the front row behind the goal and was led away. But that was not the end of it as the dog reappeared to race up the touchline and sit in front of the dug-outs before again being led away. “Are you Korsten in disguise?” was the cry from the Spurs fans this time.

Everton started the livelier side and twice threatened the Spurs goal before taking an early LEAD. Hutchison who during the match did not WINALOT against Sherwood capitalised on a mistake and charged down the left hand side. He had time to unLEASH an early cross which his PAL Kevin Campbell met with his head whilst Carr and Perry appeared to go WALKIES. The ball flew past Walker into the net before he could PAW it away. But Spurs did not TAIL Everton for long. A minute later Sol met a free kick deep and saw his header hit the post but fortunately Armstrong was on hand to WOOF it in. Tottenham were now like a DOG WITH A BONE and Everton feeling a bit hot under the COLLAR. Within for minutes an excellent move saw SHAGGY release a fine ball to Ginola. David was able to BOWL into the area and hit a cross come shot which looped over Gerrard’s head in the Everton goal after taking a deflection just as David hit the ball. Bit of a HOWLER for the home side. As half time approached Iversen had an excellent chance to make it 3-1 but was Unable to beat Gerrard. The miss would certainly have made George Graham GROWL.

The second half saw Everton searching for an equaliser but it looked like being Spurs day. Late in the half a quickly taken free kick was met at the far post by Iversen who directed his header goalwards from a fine angle when had he squared the ball Armstrong must have scored. George Graham was BARKING at the referee for some questionable bookings and the WAG of a fourth official somehow signalled 4 minutes of injury time. The Spurs defence was PANTING when a throw travelled much further across the 6 yard box than it should have done. An American called Joe-Max Moore who had just come on was on hand to smash in the equaliser to WAILS of delight from the Goodison faithful.

Sherwood had a strong game again. Ginola was his usual self winding up the home crowd and being substituted by an ineffective Nielsen after 68 minutes. It was Anderton who caught the eye proving that although he is not totally match fit he is still a very skilful footballer able to pass accurately, and create, from the right side of midfield. Kevin Keegan who was in the stand will I am sure have noted Anderton’s contribution, he was “THE DOG’S B****CKS”.

14.08.1999 Premier League     Home     Won      3-2

Another game that started at a frenetic pace, but which saw Spurs have the better start. Only the agility of Gerrard in the Everton goal kept out Anderton (who neatly weaved past two defenders on the edge of the box to get in a thumping right foot shot), Ginola’s powerful drive and Iversen’s flicked header. Between these Tottenham efforts, the Toffees had their best spell of the match with Campbell looping a lob onto the top of the bar and Jeffers staying on his feet for once to have a drive deflected over after a neat piece of footwork. It was from this corner that a shot ricocheted to him on the edge of the six yard box (looking suspiciously offside like Shearer on Monday night) and as he took the ball away from goal Walker went to ground behind him. Jeffers was hit by the sniper on the grassy knoll and the ref fell for the conspiracy, pointing to the spot. Unsworth, feeling at home with the responsibility, rifled the penalty just out of Ian’s reach. He also joined the attack later in the half to drill in a low shot that Walker gathered comfortably. In similar fashion to Everton’s goal, it came following the reflex save from Iversen’s header. Anderton swung in the corner and Sherwood got to it first and glanced home the Spurs equaliser. The first half ended all square, but the visitor’s goal had been against the run of play.

The second half saw Tottenham strangely subdued and they let Everton get a foothold back into the match. Spurs did have chances when Les powerfully headed downwards, but Gerrard got his body behind the ball; Anderton was fed in by Leo and his left foot shot flew wide of the target and Stephen Carr popped up in the box and unleashed a stinging shot that the keeper pushed over. Once more, Everton scored against the run of play and once more it was Walker who brought down Jeffers when he was through on goal. The interpretation by the referee to give a yellow card to Walker was strange, but then Alcock lived up to his name with his overall performance during the afternoon. Unsworth went the same way – so did Ian, but the ball shot underneath him to give the Toffees the lead. However, Walter Smith then substituted Jeffers and with no further fear of conceding a penalty Tottenham took the ball by the horns and propelled it toward the Everton goal at every opportunity. The lead only lasted for five minutes, when Ginola went down the line and got a deep cross in (as he should do more often) that caused Gerrard problems, only being able to palm it out. It evaded the two defenders behind him and Leonhardsen was there to shoot high into the roof of the net. At 2-2, you may have thought that Everton would tighten up, but their play let Spurs in for the winner. Carr had time on the right wing to put in a cross with pace and Steffen got in front of his marker to power a header low into the corner of the net. This was not the end of it as even Steffen Freund (on as a sub for Dazza, who faded and got a knock) had a shot that went close and at the end Tottenham were just playing keep-ball as the crowd cheered every pass with Everton looking unable or unwilling to get the ball off us.

The result was probably about right although Spurs should have wrapped the game up in the first half. The two penalties let Everton into the match, when in truth, they never looked like scoring and it will be a worry when we play the better sides, because they won’t allow us back into the game like today. Anderton played well again and Leonhardsen was all over the pitch adding effort to craft in the midfield. Walker was lucky not to be sent off, but if the ref had displayed any consistency, Ward and Hutchinson may well have also gone off. Sherwood was strong and lead by example, while both Les and Iversen toiled away against the four centre-halves played in Everton’s back line. In the end it was like taking candy from a baby, but the Toffees will be wondering how they let the three points be taken from them.

28.12.1998 Premier League     Home    Won     4-1.

The game that brought the year to an end was a strange affair. Coming after Christmas, it seemed to suffer from some overindulgence, but was satisfying nonetheless. Without playing well, Tottenham somehow managed to come out of the match with all three points and their best win of the season. I think that a poor Everton side had something to do with that. One turning point in the game came in the second half, when Nick Barmby (who was booed throughout) shot from the edge of the box and Walker stretched to push the shot out and away. Tottenham didn’t look back from that point. The first half had been a mish-mash of good play and mistakes. Luke Young had to make a saving tackle when Sol uncharacteristically gave the ball away in front of his own box, while Spurs gave the ball away on occasion like it was a cold Brussels sprout left on the Christmas dinner plate. A weird goal came Tottenham’s way – a cross was headed goalwards by Armstrong, but was blocked by the back of an Everton head. However, the backspin took the ball back towards the middle of the penalty area and Les reacted quickest to lash the ball high into the net past Myrhe. At this point Tottenham were worthy of their lead, with the Toffees keeper making a good save from a long-range header, but was unable to make it stick. The visitors then got an equaliser after Tottenham failed to clear an attack and a cross from the right was headed home by the stooping Bakayoko. Almost immediately after the goal he left the field following a heavy tackle to be replaced by Cadamateri (or some other squid dish). His first action involved a late tackle on Young which was played on by the ref, but Luke stopped and turned to confront the England Under-21 striker. This left Mr. Poll (every footballer’s friend) with no option, but to book the Everton sub. Cleland missed a good opportunity for Everton and for Spurs, Armstrong failed to control a Ginola cross when in front of goal and failed to find Les when a square ball would have left him with a tap-in.

Into the second and things really seemed to go Tottenham’s way. Cleland had come on for Short early on in the first half and this had restricted Ginola’s involvement. However, he battled away doing good defensive work, while Anderton came more into the game. Fox laid on the first goal of the second period for Armstrong, who took the ball past Myrhe and slipped it into the net. His next came when Young’s clearance fell to him in the Everton half. Les got in the way, but back-heeled the ball to Armo to finish inside the box. His hat-trick arrived when Dazza lobbed the ball over a static defence and he took his shot early to leave the keeper grasping at thin air. It was an expert display in finishing from a player who had been four games without a goal and who will miss the next game because of suspension. He almost set up Ferdinand for another and at one stage in this half Tottenham strung about fifteen passes together to great cheers from the crowd as Everton chased shadows. At the other end, Young made a remarkable tackle in the area to take the ball from behind and get away without fouling the Everton forward.

It was a shame that Mr. Poll and one of his assistant referees spoiled what was otherwise an excellent afternoon out. I think the ref must have been on a performance related pay scheme, the yellow cards he dished out were mostly unjustified. However, I know it was only Everton, but we needed a win and hopefully the new year will see many more. A good performance, with more to come I’m sure.

29.08.1998 Premier League    Away    Won     0-1

‘We’re Spurs and we’re proud of it’ sang the Spurs following after this gritty & determined performance secured Spurs first points of the new campaign. There was no booing of Spurs players from the hard-core fans who were firmly behind the team.  Barmby did however get some justifiable stick until he was substituted.  It must soon be time for him to move on to a club nearer home!

Gross made some brave team selections. Walker was replaced by Baardsen. Vega again partnered Campbell in the centre of defence. Calderwood was brought in to the centre of midfield alongside Anderton with Fox wide right and Nielson wide left but ‘tucking in’. Ginola joined Ferdinand up front.

Spurs started well with some good passing and movement. An early cross by Fox from the right eluded Ferdinand but found Nielson arriving to win a corner. Ginola’s corner was high and hanging. Ferdinand made an excellent run and leap to power a downward header which went through Collins legs and bounced on the line on its way past Myhre and into the net. Just over 5 minutes on the clock and Spurs 1-0 up. Now we had a lead to defend and defend it we did . Plenty of hard work for Mr. Gross throughout the team with Spurs players closing down tackling and hassling and not allowing Everton to settle. None epitomised the effort more than Ferdinand who worked tirelessly for the cause. When Everton did get chances Baardsen was equal to them saving at point blank range from Cadamateri and tipping over a free kick from Dacourt. Spurs even created the odd chance with Carr making an excellent run into the box . He was found by Fox but the attempt was blocked by Myhre.

Half Time 0-1.

The second half saw much of the same.  Everton pressured but were not playing well. Ginola had gone down on a number of occasions and had been booked in the 1st half, Early in the second half he was picked out wide on the left by Anderton and outpaced Unsworth as he raced into the area. As he closed on goal Unsworth caught Ginola’s heel and down he went. Penalty ?  No said the referee play on. It was the most blatant penalty ever seen. Ginola could not believe what had happened and for a couple of minutes took no part in the game as he showed his frustration at one end of the pitch whilst the game continued at the other. He eventually regained his composure sufficient to join in but was then intent on giving a solo display. There is no doubt that Ginola goes down theatrically. Sometimes he is fouled sometimes not. The referee must take a balanced view. Mr. Jones did not and was wrong. Eventually close to the end of the game he whistled for a foul on Ginola. Hallelujah Hallelujah came the chant from Spurs fans.

Ferguson did get the ball in the net for Everton but was Offside before he bundled over Campbell and then beat Baardsen.   Espen the Viking made further excellent saves from Ferguson twice and was also brave enough to clatter into him when coming for a cross although Baardsen got the worst of that challenge.

The whole team certainly played for each other with a spirit that has been missing. Baardsen was outstanding and Walker will find it difficult to get back in. Campbell was a Colossus again and Vega supported him well. The midfield worked for each other and made Everton look a poor side, John Collins included.  Up front Ferdinand was outstanding until replaced by Armstrong.  We rode our luck a little but this was the sort of performance that was needed to boost confidence. The fact we got 5 yellow cards confirms the commitment. We must now take it from here . The problems have not been solved and there is much to do . Everton are not a great side but they probably thought this was their game and Spurs commitment was too much for them.

‘We’re Spurs and we’re proud of it’.

Another Saturday, another six-pointer. This one had a false start in more ways than one. The whistle blew for the start of the match and was then blown again as one of the Everton players was in the Spurs half. The ref allowed Spurs to kick-off again, but failed to realise that Armstrong and Fox were some 20 yards inside the Everton half of the pitch !! Spurs started well, but did allow Everton time and space to exploit, which they did. Ferguson had a tame shot saved by Walker and Barmby was foiled by Vega (although it looked like he missed from a couple of yards himself). Their first decent effort was the goal and that resulted from an intercepted clearance, which Barmby fed to Madar, who strolled through our non-existent offside trap to slot past Walker. It was only quick thinking by Carr that thwarted Ferguson again. The strong wind was obviously a major factor in the way the game was played and must have been far too fierce for Barmby, Madar, Ginola and Armstrong, the way that they kept ending up on the floor. The half ended with Spurs pressing, but Ginola’s curling shot from the edge of the box that whizzed inches wide was the closest they came.

The excitement of the Grand National being shown on both our video screens (the second in use for the first time) must have reached the Spurs dressing room, as they looked fired up for the second half but the best chance early on fell to Ferguson. He raced away from Vega, who had slipped, exchanged passes with Madar and in the clear and 12 yards out, he preceded to blaze yards wide with his right foot. Spurs seized the moment and Klinsmann went close with two flashing headers from Carr crosses. However, a quick throw-out from Myhre found Barmby, who ran past Wilson and was only foiled when Walker dived out at his feet. This saw the end of Clive’s involvement in the game as he left the field with a shoulder injury and was replaced by Calderwood, who played a solid game in his stead. Berti was replaced by Saib for the last 20 minutes and the Algerian’s precise passing brought about an immediate change. It was his dinked pass into Vega, who nodded across goal for Armstrong to head home that put Spurs equal. Then Saib’s cross produced an acrobatic scissor-kick from Jurgen that was blocked by Watson’s face and Armo managed a volley with his back to goal that went wide. Even then things weren’t finished, as the ball flew across the Spurs goal and Ball had a shot at the death saved by Walker as it came through a forest of legs.

Barmby obviously feels he has something to prove to the Spurs fans as he went around kicking the Spurs players until he got booked for his third late challenge. His every touch prompted shouts of “Tottenham Reject”, which he wasn’t, but his career has nose-dived since his departure. Ginola was frustrating again and did nothing to impress the referee, who rightly booked him for diving. If yellow cards are an indication of the amount of fight in the side, then Everton are bound to stay up, but the final score in terms of goals was probably about right. Spurs had more possession, but did little with it in terms of clear goal-scoring chances and Everton broke quickly and utilised the space they were given. A point a piece to keep both away from the bottom three – both Bolton and Barnsley failing to win, but in the remaining games both Spurs and Everton need a couple of wins to climb to safety.

29.11.1997 Spurs ran out 2-0 winners in a Premier League game they dominated at Goodison Park.

Everton had the best of the first half, but were unable to convert the chances they created, while Clive Wilson was alert in the first minute to clear Duncan Ferguson’s header off the line.  Ex-Spur Nick Barmby glanced a shot against the bar and Spurs were further hampered, when the injured Campbell had to be replaced before half-time.

Spurs had a good opportunity in the 56th minute, when Ramon Vega headed over when well-placed from Scales’ header back into the box at Ginola’s corner.  Fortunately, he was more accurate in the 72nd minute, when he was on hand to put Andy Sinton’s cross into the net.  When David Ginola ripped a shot past the keeper following a mazy run to make it 2-0, Spurs had the points sewn up.

12.04.1997 Gary Speed’s single goal won this Premier League game for struggling Everton, as Spurs suffered a number of injuries during the game at Goodison.

Speed struck in the 11th minute to give the home side a lead they held onto despite Tottenham having good openings that Sheringham (twice) and Campbell’s header could not finish.  Allan Nielsen’s effort was saved acrobatically by Neville Southall.  At the other end, Ian Walker saved from Duncan Ferguson and Graham Stuart, while Nick Barmby hit a shot into the side-netting.  Caretaker manager Dave Watson did well to head Teddy Sheringham’s free-kick off the line to maintain the vital lead for Everton.

09.04.1995 FA Cup Semi-Final     Elland Road     Lost      1-4

The FA Cup semi-final at Elland Road was won by the Toffees, when Everton scored with goals from Daniel Amokachi 2, Graham Stuart and Matt Jackson, while Spurs’ consolation goal came from a Jurgen Klinsmann penalty.

Jackson opened the scoring with a header from a 35th minute corner, getting across Stuart Nethercott to beat Ian Walker at his near post.  It was into the second half that Graham Stuart doubled the lead on 55 minutes and although Dave Watson pulled down Teddy Sheringham for Klinsmann to score from the spot, substitute Daniel Amokachi scored twice in the last twenty minutes to see the Toffees through to the final.

24.08.1994 Another outstanding goal-scoring master-class by Jurgen Klinsmann saw off Everton in this Premier League match.

Teddy Sheringham nearly gave Spurs the lead when he reached Kerslake’s cross and diverted the ball up onto the bar and then reacted quickly, but his header just went over the bar.  In the 27th minute, David Kerslake broke down the right wing to cross into the box.  The ball fell at the far post, where Sheringham knocked it back, Nethercott headed down and Klinsmann leapt to scissor kick the ball past Southall with great power.

With 35 minutes gone, another Kerslake cross flicked off Sheringham’s head and Klinsmann reacted well to the speeding ball to direct it just inside the post to give Tottenham a 2-0 advantage.  Just before the break an Unsworth handball in the box gave Sheringham the chance to make the lead even greater, but his penalty kick was blazed over the top.

Everton did get back into the game a minute intp the second half, when a quick free-kick was played to John Ebbrell, who bent the ball round the Spurs defence for Paul Rideout to slide in at the far post to narrow the lead.

03.10.1993 A stirring end to this match saw Spurs grab a late winner to disappoint a spirited Everton side in the Premier League at White Hart Lane.

Paul Rideout’s 16th minute goal was equalised by Teddy Sheringham’s firm header from Danny Hill’s 59th minute cross, but the lead for Everton was regained by Cottee’s 68th minute penalty.  The penalty detracted from Gary Mabbutt’s day, as it was his 500th appearance for Tottenham and it was him who brought the former West Ham United striker to the ground to concede the spot-kick.

The game seemed to be slipping away from Tottenham, but Darren Anderton grabbed what seemed to be a point in the 89th minute with a finish to Sedgley’s cross and Sheringham’s nod down.  However, the Spurs fans in the crowd (and the Sky TV audience in front of their TVs) went wild when Darren Caskey shot home through a crowd of players in the area at the Paxton end to net the winner in the second minute of added time.

10.02.1993 Spurs edged a Premier League meeting with Everton at Goodison Pak by two goals to one.

Gary Mabbutt gave Spurs a 26th minute lead when his good run found him unmarked to head in Darren Anderton’s left wing corner.  The home side pulled level just three minutes later when the ball was played across to Kenny Samson on the left and his cross-shot beat Thorstvedt from the edge of the box.

But Spurs hit back to score the winning goal that started with a Pat van den Hauwe long throw in the 69th minute.  It was headed on by Anderton and Paul Allen found himself eight yards out to slice a volley past Neville Southall to give Tottenham a 2-1 victory.

05.09.1992 Tottenham’s captain for the day Paul Allen was on the mark to pull Spurs back into this first ever Premier League meeting with Everton at White Hart Lane. 

Peter Beardsley scored to give Everton a 1-0 lead in the 42nd minute when he ran away from the Spurs defence down the left, to slot home past Ian Walker, who got a hand to the ball, but could not stop it.

Things looked black for Spurs with only 11 minutes left, but a long throw from Andy Gray led to Gordon Durie having a cross-shot that was touched on by Sheringham, with Neville Southall saving, but Paul Allen hit the loose ball past Southall to level the scores and a point looked the likely outcome for Tottenham.  The introduction of Andy Turner from the bench to make his debut changed the course of the game.  As Spurs pressed forward and won a few late corners, one dropped just inside the box at the far post and Turner struck the ball as it bounced up, waist-high and it ripped into the net for a late winner gave Spurs the points and made him the youngest scorer in the Premier League at the time aged 17 years and 166 days – a record that stood for five years.

09.12.1989 Division 1     Home     Won     2-1.

Spurs edged the First Division match at White Hart Lane with Everton by the odd goal in three.

It was in the 11th minute when Cottee finished from close-range to hand the Toffees the advantage, but after blocked shots from Gary Lineker and Paul Stewart, the pair combined to create the equaliser in the 23rd minute.  Steve Sedgley won the ball at the back giving it to Mitchell Thomas, who moved it on to Vinny Samways.  He played a first-time pass to Stewart on the left and his low cross was swept into the net by a perfectly-timed run by Lineker.

Erik Thorstvedt had to be alert to make good saves from Graeme Sharp and Cottee in the first half, but it was Spurs who got the deciding goal.  Lineker returned the favour to Stewart and sent him through to rifle a shot past Neville Southall with an hour gone.  There was still plenty of action left in the game, with Thorstvedt saving from the two Everton strikers again and Southall keeping out efforts from Lineker, Gascoigne and Thomas in the closing stages.

Within two minutes, Clive Allen had opened his goal-scoring account for the club and then was joined in the debut scoring six minutes after the interval, when Chiedozie hit the net to make it 3-1 to Tottenham.  When Allen hit the fourth Spurs goal, it rounded off a fine first afternoon of the season for the side against the side who won the title at the end of the season.

A long throw by Everton’s Gary Stevens from left saw a group of players go up at the near post and the ball dropped for Kevin Sheedy to rifle the ball home with his left foot from the left corner of the six-yard box in the 38th minute.

Into the second half, Hughton played a long ball forward that headed out by Mountfield, but picked up by Falco, 30 yards out on the right.  He held off two players and turned to smash a low bouncing shot past the keeper from 25 yards out.

04.09.1982 Division 1     Away     Lost     1-3.

Goals from Kevin Sheedy, Steve McMahon and Billy Wright condemned Spurs to a 3-1 defeat at Goodison Park, with only Steve Archibald’s goal to show for the trip to the North-West.

It only took six minutes for Kevin Sheedy to hand Everton the lead, with Billy Wright extending it to 2-0 in the 17th minute.  When Steve McMahon scored again before half-time, it looked ominous for Tottenham, but they stuck at their task and pulled a second half goal back a minute after McMahon had seemingly put the game out of Tottenham’s reach.  Spurs then pressed to get closer to Everton in the second half, but failed to take the chances that were made.

The game was marred by the sending off of John Lacy and a few minutes later, the home team’s John Bailey.
