Premier League    Away    Lost  3-4
 
Leeds came into this game fresh from their 6-0 thrashing of Turkish side Besiktas. They were also anxious for Premier points having lost their previous two home league games. The whingeing O’Leary continued to moan about the lack of first team players but he only seemed to be missing Woodgate and Kewell. Strange how the trial for Woodgate and Bowyer does not come to court until June 2001 – during the close season.
There were no surprises in the Spurs team although Anderton was back on the bench.
The first half was dull with only two incidents worth commenting on. Radebe and Ferdinand both went for a header in the midfield area. With both concentrating on the ball there was a very nasty clash of heads and both fell to the floor and lay motionless. After some lengthy treatment Radebe eventually got to his feet but poor old Les left the field on a stretcher and was no doubt taken straight to hospital. Although Radebe continued he was clearly struggling and eventually he was also taken off following Les in an ambulance just as he had followed him around the pitch for 30 minutes.
Les was replaced by Anderton making an early, but welcome return. Darren made an immediate difference through his intelligent play and accurate passing. Spurs began to put together some good moves with Anderton bringing Rebrov and Carr into the game. From one move Carr and Iversen exchanged passes and Carr squared the ball to Rebrov who swept the ball home from the edge of the area. A sweetly worked goal which stunned Leeds. So Spurs went in at half time leading and the travelling fans were looking forward to an uneventful second half and a trip home with three points.
It was not to be. The centre of Tottenham’s defence which had wobbled in the first half fell apart in the second. Between the 52nd and the 74th minute we witnessed six goals.
On 52 minutes, a Leeds corner was half cleared to Bowyer who lobbed the ball high into the Tottenham goal. Sullivan was caught too close to his near post and desperately back pedalled only to palm the ball onto his back post. The ball rebounded and before Vega could clear (no surprise there), Smith got a toe to the ball and Viduka smashed it into the roof of the net. Three minutes later a long shot by Kelly, which Sullivan had covered, was deflected in by an unmarked Viduka (where was Vega?). Another four minutes and Smith fouled Perry. The referee ignored Spurs claims, so Carr fouled Smith. The free kick from Bowyer was ignored by the Spurs defence allowing an unmarked Smith to steer his header past Sullivan. But Spurs battled back and a superb free kick from Anderton cleared the Leeds defence and found Perry at the back post who headed home. All was not lost. Back came Leeds and from a Bowyer corner Smith was again unmarked and guided a second header past Sullivan. Spurs had however still not given up the fight. Anderton delivered another excellent corner. Iversen headed goalwards and Rebrov athletically got a toe to the ball. Smith appeared to head off the line, but an eagle eyed assistant referee had spotted the ball was in and a goal was awarded. All this and still 16 minutes to go ! Spurs pushed for the equaliser and both Sherwood and Anderton came close, but it was Leeds who took all three points and George Graham is still seeking a winning return to Elland Road.
At least George is more unpopular with the Leeds fans than he is with the Spurs fans if that’s possible. All afternoon the home crowd chanted abuse in George’s direction.
For Spurs Rebrov was man of the match for his two goals and for the interplay with Darren. Anderton was outstanding. You can say what you like about “Sicknote”, but there is no doubt he is an excellent footballer on his day. His delivery into the box is as good as anyone’s and he has that seemingly rare ability to pass a ball accurately to feet. Sullivan was at fault for the first goal. Vega was at fault all afternoon. Poor old Ramon struggled with the strength of Viduka and with the pace and guile of Smith. At times Perry must have felt very alone in the centre of defence. Hurry back Sol or we will have to go and sign Ehiogu. Sherwood continued his poor run of form and he must stop giving the ball away and then blaming his team mates.
So an exciting game but nothing to show for it.

Another disappointing performance from Spurs who were again beaten one nil. The team lacked bite, character and resilience and it was not until the second half that they really became involved. Then it was in all sorts of petty nastiness. Nigel Martyn in the Leeds goal did not have to make one serious save throughout the game.

The only change to the team which lost against Chelsea saw Korsten make his full debut in place of Iversen. On this performance from Korsten one wonders what all the fuss was about. He is not match fit, hardly won a tackle and is marginally worse than Armstrong in front of goal! For someone who is 6ft 3 he does not win many balls in the air either. For Leeds, Bowyer was at his worst snapping away in midfield. He committed four fouls in the first half for which the referee awarded free kicks, but under the new lenient approach kept his card in his pocket. He did however caution Clemence, Sherwood and Armstrong for their first fouls.

This was a day when Leeds needed to win and they were by far the better side in the early exchanges. In the 23rd minute Walker came out of his goal to kick a clearance with Smith ambling towards him. The kick went straight down the middle of the field and Korsten lost out to a Woodgate header in the centre circle. As the ball flew over the Spurs defence Kewell charged through passing Smith on his way back. Smith was in an offside position but was adjudged not to be interfering, so Kewell got to the ball before Walker and flicked it past him just outside the area. He then took control, side stepped Sol Campbell and slid the ball into the empty net. A good goal for Kewell but one felt Walker, Korsten and Campbell might have done better.

It was hard to see where Spurs may get a goal from. Sherwood hit a pathetic effort from 30 yards. The best chance in the first half fell to Armstrong right on half time. He raced clear on the right but blazed his shot high and wide.

The second half saw Spurs show a little more fight. Ginola was having a running battle with Kelly and incensed the home contingent with his antics. Bowyer launched a tackle on Clemence which saw his boot in Clemence’s chest while they were both on the ground with the ball nowhere to be seen. This caused an almighty fracas with handbags flying from all 22 players but only Bowyer got his inevitable yellow card. Bowyer is a good player but he clearly has a nasty streak which he cannot control. Possibly that is why he is always in trouble off the field as well.

The next incident was between Ginola and Wilcox. The Leeds man dispossessed Ginola in a tackle on the by-line and then proceeded to trample all over him in the follow-through.

As the game dragged on the Leeds fans became more interested in the fact that Man United were losing at Newcastle. Spurs created chances at the death which they should have scored. Armstrong won a header but it was so weak Martyn only had to bend down to pick the ball up. Armstrong again jumped too early for a ball bouncing across the area and seemed to duck under it rather than head it. Kortsen had an excellent chance when fed on his left foot on the edge of the area but he put the ball in row Z instead of the net.

The game finished with another stamping incident. In the corner, in front of the Spurs, fans Perry made a sweeping tackle on Harte to put the ball in touch. Harte jumped to avoid the tackle and deliberately landed in a stamping motion on Perry’s chest. Chris was incensed and launched into the Irishman. The referee took no action.

Another poor defeat away from home. Only Campbell really shone for Spurs and his influence on the other players was missing. Ginola never threatened and was replace by Dominguez. As usual Jose’s only contribution was to get an opposing player a yellow card. This time Jones for a nasty foul from behind. Anderton went through the motions. Armstrong and Korsten did not look as if they would score if they played all night. George was booed by the Leeds fans but I doubt if they had ever seen a George Graham side with so little character and fight.

28.08.1999
Premier League.    Home    Lost    1-2.

When Sky TV’s Soccer AM christened our visitors “Dirty Leeds” many months ago, it was with a tinge of humour. However, it appears that they are seriously trying to live up to this tag and emulate their 1970’s counter-parts who were purveyors of the “professional” approach (read as “cynical win-at-all-costs” approach). Last season I compared some of their current players to those of yesteryear, but I got those wrong. Bowyer is a thug – Bremner without the skill; Alan Smith is Allan Clarke – niggly, off the ball, late challenges; Kewell is Giles – skilful, but with a penchant for shirt-pulling and a nasty streak when he thinks no-one is looking; Woodgate is Charlton – a commanding centre-half, but with a “they shall not pass – one way or the other” mentality; Batty is Hunter – not just your legs, he’ll “bite” any part of your anatomy he can get too; Mills is Trevor Cherry – just crap. The loss of Les Ferdinand at half-time upset Spurs’ balance and took away the aerial threat to Leeds’ defence. For a tall back line, they seemed easily beaten in the air, with Duberry distinctly uncomfortable against Stef or Les. Having bossed the first half, the second was a defeat just waiting to happen.

The first quarter of an hour saw both sides pinging in long-shots which caused little trouble, but Tottenham made the first serious in-roads and Leeds were struggling to keep up. Although Walker had flapped at one cross and saved a weak long-range drive from Bridges (who looked every inch of a £4 million waste of money), he had a relatively easy first half, as Spurs tore into the Leeds side. Taricco and Ginola were turning Mills and Bowyer with ease and both those were booked for late tackles borne of frustration and malice. There was plenty going on off the ball, but the linesmen offered little help to the ref in this respect early in the game. Mills trampled back onto to Taricco, but the lino said nothing happened, so why wasn’t Taricco booked for acting ? Bowyer got away with a forearm smash into Sherwood’s face right in front of the ref, but after Vieira’s let-off last week, I suppose we should expect them to get booked for the heinous crime of kicking the ball away, while leg-breaking tackles go unpunished.

Spurs had chances before they took the lead. Freund got a shot on target (I was there), Iversen’s header from 12 yards forced Martyn to scramble and stretch to turn it round for a corner and twice Iversen shot wide of the mark when he could have forced the Leeds keeper into action. The goal itself started with a long-throw from Freund which Les jumped for but missed, although he took two Leeds defenders out doing so. It bounced into the area and Steffen Iversen chested the ball back for Tim Sherwood to bury a volley low into the net from 10 yards out. It was about the right score at half-time, but Tottenham could have been two goals to the good as a Ginola cross fizzed across the face of the goal with Ferdinand just unable to make ground to get a touch which would surely have taken it in.

The concussion that Les suffered in the first half, meant Jose came on for him at the break. Leeds also made two subs and it was these three substitutions which changed the game, especially as Hopkin came on and ran the midfield for them like he did in the league match at The Lane last season. With Dominguez upfront with Iversen, there was little chance that the ball would be held up there and it kept coming back, with Spurs seemingly unable to break out of their own half. With a few minutes gone, the ball pinged about the edge of the Spurs area until it fell to Smith, who turned and shot in one move, the ball going across Walker and into the far corner. Hopkin had a run down the left of our side, where nobody could get a decent tackle in and he set up Bowyer, but he could only sky his attempt over the bar and took his frustration out on an advertising hoarding for McDonald’s (not the first time he has put the boot into the Golden Arches !!). Spurs did liven up and Sherwood’s header went wide, although the ball was slightly behind him; Iversen had a free header a few yards out and headed down, but too much and it ended up bouncing over the bar; another penalty box scramble saw the ball loop up to the edge of the area, where Jose hit a ferocious volley, that hit Martyn more than he saved it. Even when David decided to take on the whole Leeds defence (a la the FA Cup replay) after Bowyer had kicked him in the face, he was foiled by another fine save by the keeper. The failings of last season came back to haunt us, by not taking these half-chances, we forfeited the match as the longer it went on the more there was only going to be one winner. The way it came about was annoying though. Bowyer’s fall on the edge of the box will be a regular feature of Leeds’ play throughout the season.

Having Huckerby, Harte and Kewell, it is as good as a penalty, if not better, because you can put your players in front of the keeper and drag opponents by their shirt to obscure the goalie’s view (sour grapes … me??). Harte’s shot was fairly unstoppable, but sometimes I wonder, as written in MEHSTG Vol. 1, whether it would be better to do without a wall. At least then there would be a clear line of sight. All that remained was to wait for one of the Leeds players to be dismissed. My money was on the brainless Bowyer, but it was Alan Smith who with his first header of the match connected with Taricco’s stomach and the linesman did spot it and the young striker was on his way, childishly barging into Mauricio on the way off. It was strange, because throughout the game he had constantly tried to win headers with his elbow !!

This game proved that we can compete with the better sides in the Premiership, but without Campbell and decent back up for our forwards, we still have a way to go.

10.03.1999 Premier League     Away    Lost   0-2

This was the fourth meeting this season between these two teams with Leeds still to win a game. Spurs came in to the game on the back of a 16 match unbeaten run. George Graham returned to his old club with his new club unbeaten in 1999. All that ended at Elland Road as Leeds completely dominated the game and left Spurs well beaten. A poor Tottenham performance. Leeds started hungrier for the win and were fiercer in the tackle, especially with Batty making a return. For much of the first half it was backs against the wall for Tottenham as they held Leeds at bay. There was a tough contest in midfield as Freund, Sherwood, Batty and Haaland all saw yellow in the first period. A melee broke out after Sherwood was accused of stamping on Bowyer, but quite frankly it was no more than the annoying little toe rag deserved. As half time approached Spurs had a number of chances. Sherwood saw his under hit volley easily saved by Martyn when he should have scored. Armstrong missed a sitter with his head from Ginola’s cross.  Another header by Sherwood was well saved by Martyn and Iverson was slow to respond to the rebound. With two minutes of the half remaining Leeds scored when Smith was on hand to volley home after Walker had saved from Kewell.  

The second half continued with the same pattern and the inevitable second goal arrived on 68 minutes. Haaland was allowed to cross and Kewell beat Carr and Young to score with his head at the far post. Spurs hardly threatened even after three substitutions in the 76th minute. Oh, how the Leeds fans enjoyed taunting George. In the first show of support for their Manager Spurs fans sang:
Man in a Raincoat’s Blue ‘n White army 
Man in a Raincoat’s Blue ‘n White army
Man in a Raincoat’s Blue ‘n White army”    Says it all.

24.02.1999 FA Cup Fifth Round replay    Home   Won  2-0

For a more detailed match report, click here.

Spurs won this replay at the Lane with two stunning goals, taking them past Leeds United and into the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

The first half saw both sides create opportunities, with Harry Kewell shooting wide when Leeds broke away, then Chris Armstrong put a header from a David Ginola cross wide when well placed.

Nine minutes into the second half, Ginola’s trademark dribble, coming in off the right wing saw him smash a left foot shot that crashed against the post, rolled along the line and bounced out, with George Graham celebrating, as he thought the ball had gone in.

With 58 minutes on the clock, a quickly taken free-kick by Ginola lead to the opening goal. His short touch to Darren Anderton caught Leeds napping and the winger’s 30 yard pile-driver left Nigel Martyn grasping at thin air as it fizzed past him into the net.

Eight minutes after that, the England winger forced Martyn to touch another shot onto the post, but Ginola brought the house down with a goal that summed up his style. After Iversen hassled Gunnar Halle and the ball ran to Tim Sherwood, whose cross was cleared up into the air by Woodgate, but it was straight into the French maestro’s run. Without breaking stride, he volleyed a shot from 25 yards out that bounced before Martyn and picked up pace off the pitch to rocket past the keeper to make it 2-0. 

Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink went close twice in the closing minutes with a shot that fizzed just over the bar and a 20 yard effort that rebounded out off the goalpost.

David Weatherall and Les Ferdinand spent a night in hospital with concussion after a clash of heads during the game.

13.02.1999 FA Cup Fifth Round     Away     Drew   1-1

A ‘warm’ Yorkshire welcome awaited George Graham on his return to Elland Road. Well, it seemed warm by Yorkshire standards – they only booed him a little and threw in the usual banter. The usual road-works on the M1 frustrated Spurs fans on their travels as all roads led to this area on 5th round day. As well as Leeds v Spurs, we had Huddersfield v Derby, Barnsley v Bristol Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday v Chelsea all in close proximity and all well supported on the motorway. Tim Sherwood was chosen for his full debut ahead of Alan Nielsen and Ginola returned to the side to be man marked by Lucas Radebe. George was obviously aware of young Alan Smith in the Leeds front line and preferred Luke Young ahead of Vega. Spurs started well and should have gone ahead in the 2nd minute after Ginola carved an opening, Sherwood fed Ferdinand and Les saw his shot pass Martyn heading for the far corner of the goal, only for Harte to make a last ditch clearance off the line. A few minutes later Ferdinand was close again challenging Martyn in the air the Leeds keeper just managed to punch away Ginola’s cross. Ferdinand was subject to some robust treatment by the Leeds defence and received a yellow card himself after letting the referee know his feelings. As half time approached Spurs had an outstanding opportunity. Ginola from just inside the Spurs half flicked a tantalising ball to the overlapping Edinburgh. Justin made his way to the by-line and sent over an excellent cross which Ferdinand flicked on to the waiting Iversen at the far post. Steffen contrived to get on top of the ball and hit it into the ground and over the bar. A sitter missed. Iversen works hard but on occasions at present looks sluggish and one wonders whether he is fully fit?

The second half started with Ferdinand charging down the right and hitting a shot across the goal which again beat Martyn and also the far post. Then, in the 53rd minute Spurs scored. Iversen was put away down the right, where he held the ball up well and fed Anderton. A quality cross by Darren was met early by Sherwood under challenge and the ball looped off his foot in to the far corner of the goal. Oh how we celebrated. But back came Leeds in the 73rd minute to earn an equaliser from Ian Harte. After a run which forced him inside he was allowed to shoot with his right foot and nestled the ball in the bottom corner beyond the unlucky Walker. The final result was a predictable 1-1 draw and a replay at White Hart Lane (again!!). Spurs deserved at least a draw having battled well and made the best chances. Walker make a couple of good saves and the defence played well. Campbell returning from illness shackled Hasselbaink, while in midfield Sherwood was outstanding, Freund worked well, Ginola showed in patches and Anderton just looked tired after his England exertions. There was an amusing exchange of chants between the fans which went as follows;
Leeds – some garbled Yorkshire stuff which no one could comprehend

Spurs- ‘English, we only speak English’
Leeds – ‘Yiddish, you only speak Yiddish’
Spurs – ‘Yid Army’ !!!

A good Spurs following who got behind the team if not fully behind the Manager – yet!  As Spurs fans exited the ground there was the heaviest Police presence I have seen for some time with many in full riot gear and a police film crew located on top of a nearby building to film events. Can’t wait for the DVD !

26.09.1998 Premier League    Home   Drew  3-3

This was the match that saw one club with a manager pitted against one without, but with intentions toward that of the other. A 0-0 draw seemed the most likely result, with Spurs desperate for anything and especially a clean sheet. Leeds were having trouble in the scoring department, but as always, Tottenham like to help out their suffering Premiership colleagues. It only took them three minutes to give Halle a free header from a corner to open Leeds’ account. It was another early setback, but one which could have been the equalising goal of the match, had Les seized on a low cross instead of striking it over the bar. 

Without the injured Ginola, Tottenham’s attacking options were limited, with Les and Armo upfront, supported by Nielsen, Dazza, Clemence and Fox. Ferdinand did look more up for it today, despite still suffering with his tummy bug and Armstrong also fared well with the stitches still in place. It was all going Leeds’ way, with Vega and Campbell having to make good challenges to prevent further goals, but the unlikely hero at the other end scoring with a header from an Anderton corner was big Ramon. Spurs had a period of good play and Les put a free header over the bar, before Hasselbaink gave the Yorkshire side the lead, stealing in front of Vega and Baardsen to touch home a low cross from the right. A few shots flew wide of Espen’s goal before half-time and Armstrong forced a save, but Spurs returned the brighter of the two sides following the break. During the interval however, one of the Leeds Directors (possibly Ridsdale) ran over to his fans and obviously said something that raised a big cheer. You can just imagine our Chairman doing that, can’t you ??

Although Martyn was rarely called on to make saves, Tottenham’s passing and movement was much better and it was against the run of play that Wijnaard wriggled luckily away from Vega and his shot got through Baardsen to restore Leeds’ two goal lead. The introduction of Iversen for his first game in ages saw Spurs step up their pressure. His keen running and good aerial ability upset the Leeds defence, providing chances for Clemence and Armstrong. It was from the right wing that Tottenham’s second goal came – Carr lofting a ball beyond the last Leeds man, where Steffen volleyed home sweetly from 10 yards. It was then that two interlopers ran the width of the pitch to make gestures to the Director’s Box. This was a bit strange, because Sugar was absent and Graham had moved down to the bench. The two invaders were hilariously dealt with by the stewards. 

This distraction seemed to upset the rhythm that the team had got into and Kewell, Hasselbaink and Wetherall all had opportunities to put the game beyond Tottenham. In fact, it was only a superb reflex save at the foot of his post that stopped Sol’s deflection going in and killing off the match. A Dominguez cross landed on top of the goal netting, just clearing the bar and Iversen and Armstrong had chances. Even as we entered injury time it seemed as though our chance had gone. High balls into the box were not being dealt with that well by England’s No. 2 keeper, who was electing to punch and it was from one poor punch that Nielsen hooked the ball back across the face of the six yard box for Campbell to head home. There was barely time for any more action and the final whistle blew to deny Leeds at the death. They are unbeaten and if Tottenham show such commitment and heart in every game, they will win more than they lose.

The team let in three sloppy goals, but the defence all played reasonably well despite that (odd though it sounds). The midfield eventually showed more movement, but there was a tendency to give the ball away too much. All three forwards played much better, giving something to aim at, working hard to get away from their markers and looking sharp. Although we had enough chances to win, a draw was about the right result and the performance was perhaps the most important thing. May there be many more like this.

04.03.1998 Premier League    Away    Lost  0-1

Following on from the valuable win over Bolton, Spurs needed to keep the momentum going by coming away from Elland Road with something. That didn’t happen because of bad finishing, good goalkeeping and one defensive lapse. Two good chances fell to the feet of Jurgen Klinsmann, both of which failed to hit the target. While it was a coup to re-sign him, Jurgen has looked a shadow of the player he was when he played during the 1995/6 season. Because of injury and age, he’s just a bit off the pace and it’s starting to show. Unfortunately, the club have few options because of injury, so we’ll have to hope that he soon finds his touch in front of goal. Ginola engineered a good opening only to hit a tame shot at Martyn. The Leeds and England keeper had to be on his toes to deny Nielsen from just outside the six-yard box with an athletic save to tip the shot past the post.

Just as we had beaten Bolton three days before with a goal right on the stroke of half-time, so Leeds turned the tables on us. Wallace’s cross from the left bounced invitingly into the path of the on-running Kewell, who headed past Baardsen. Apart from a save from a Hasselbaink long-shot and a Bowyer drive that went over the bar, there was precious little to entertain the fans at the cold northern outpost.

Whatever happens at the end of the season, we’ll look back on games like these and think we could (and should) have got something out of them. Leeds had an FA Cup ¼ final to look forward to on Saturday, but still had enough about them to win. We have nothing to look forward too and couldn’t produce a performance good enough to get any points. Where it will all lead is yet to come. But it would be nice to have some leads to go on (as the police say).

01.11.1997
This Premiership defeat by Leeds proved to be Gerry Francis’ last home match in charge of the team.

Early pressure by the visitors paid off with efforts by Hopkin and Rod Wallace going close, before David Robertson played in Wallace to hit a 19th minute goal that decided this game.  Walker was also called upon to save from Bruno Ribeiro, Kewell and Wallace once again.

Spurs forced Nigel Martyn into action with attempts from Fox and Dominguez, with a fine 32nd minute drive tipped over from Sinton, while Wallace went close again two minutes later.  Into the second half, Ginola with a number of shots, a Campbell header and sub. Iversen all went close, but Tottenham could not break through the visitors’ defence and Ribeiro went close to adding to their lead with Walker having to make a good stop to prevent it being 2-0.

15.03.1997
Darren Anderton’s 25th minute goal settled this Premier League game at White Hart Lane.  

Iversen drew a fine reflex save from Nigel Martyn within 30 seconds of the start, then Halle cleared a Sheringham effort off the line, while Iversen put a header just wide of the goal.  Martyn also saved from efforts by Sheringham and Sol Campbell, with Stephen Carr going close with a shot.  When John Scales sent in a deep cross, Sheringham headed back into Anderton’s path to strike the ball past Martyn in the Leeds goal.  The rest of the game saw Tottenham create a string of chances, but Leeds held out to keep the score at 1-0.  Spurs lost Steffen Iversen late on, being stretchered off with a knee injury.

14.12.1996
Spurs were the better of the two sides in this Premier League clash and hit the woodwork twice through a 38th minute Fox header and another header by Howells from a 54th minute corner hit the bar. 

Nigel Martyn was busy keeping out efforts from Sheringham and Nielsen, with Walker doing well to deal with on-target efforts from Rod Wallace and Gary Kelly.  Near the end of the game, Fox was brought down by Leeds debutant Gunnar Halle in what looked to be a blatant penalty, but no spot-kick was awarded by the ref.

Leeds United had to come from behind to gain a Premier League point against Spurs at Elland Road.

Teddy Sheringham was set up by Ilie Dumitrescu, who took the ball on the rebound from John Lukic when he saved the Romanian’s initial shot and his fellow forward slotted the ball into the net in the 27th minute.

Spurs man of the match Ian Walker prevented Leeds pulling level with fine stops from Brian Deane on two occasions and a header from Gary Speed, but Deane was the one who managed to beat the Spurs keeper with 62 minutes gone with a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

Premier League   Home    Drew   1-1

A 1-1 draw was a fair result in this close fought game at White Hart Lane.

Brian Deane’s close range header put Leeds ahead in the 52nd minute, following a Rod Wallace cross that pin-balled around the penalty area and the ball twice hit the woodwork before being netted.   Spurs lost Barmby with an ankle injury but the side pressed forward, causing Leeds some anxious moments with Edinburgh and Samways going close.  The equaliser finally came with ten minutes left as Darren Anderton’s low free-kick beat Mark Beeney at the near post.

Spurs looked the likelier to win the game and Beeney did well to hold on to Samways fierce strike in the 86th minute.

20.02.1993 Premier League   Home    Won   4-0

Tenth placed Spurs eased to a big win over 14th placed Leeds United at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

Eight minutes in and Teddy Sheringham had given Spurs the lead, heading in Darren Anderton’s right wing cross at the far post, with the striker grabbing his second goal with 37 minutes of the match gone.  It was another header, but this time from the edge of the box, looped over John Lukic after a Neil Ruddock ball played from inside the Tottenham half.

Spurs started the second half in the same vein and three minutes had elapsed before Neil Ruddock powered home a third Tottenham goal, rising highest to head home Anderton’s free-kick from the right, leaving Sheringham to wrap up the Spurs goals and his hat-trick with a penalty in the 67th minute, awarded when Barmby’s run into the left side of the penalty area was halted by a David Rocastle foul.

Eric Cantona hit the Premier League’s first hat-trick as Leeds romped home against a Spurs side who succumbed far too easily.

Erik Thorstvedt’s difficulty with the new back-pass rule saw him get tackled by Rod Wallace, who netted the opener after 20 minutes.  Seven minutes later Cantona volleyed home a clearing header from Edinburgh and on 31 minutes, he was left alone to plant a header past Erik’s dive.

It took only a couple of minutes after the break to wrap up his triple and then later on set up Lee Chapman for the fifth goal to complete Tottenham’s humiliation.

FA Cup Third Round    Home    Won   1-0

Spurs made hard work of seeing off a determined Leeds side, but won out with a second half goal from Garth Crooks.

Ray Clemence kept Frank Gray’s 41st minute free kick out with a good save, while Hoddle made openings for Crooks, Galvin, Falco and Villa, but they were all spurned and it was only when Micky Hazard was introduced as a second half substitute that Spurs perked up.  The young midfielder took a ball from Villa and crossed from the left to the head of Tony Galvin, who set it up for Crooks to swivel and hit a left foot shot past Leeds keeper Lukic, despite him getting a touch on it.

A 1-1 draw with Leeds ended a Tottenham five match winning run, despite Spurs keeping John Lukic busy in the visiting goal. 

Hoddle hit a fine free-kick and Archibald almost got on the end of strike partner Garth Crooks’ cross, but he did make contact on the half hour, when his shot flew past Lukic.  Both Hoddle and Lacy went close to extending the lead before the break.

A McAllister header and a Perryman shot kept the pressure on Leeds, but when they broke shortly after the break, Carl Harris’s free-kick unexpectedly brought Leeds level.  With the visitors looking for a winner, they pushed forward, but both Spurs strikers hit efforts high to leave Tottenham settling for the single point.

Against all odds, Spurs came away from Elland Road with a victory.  With Paul Miller dismissed in the 27th minute and Barry Daines going off with concussion and a shoulder injury – Glenn Hoddle taking his place in goal – Spurs were up against it.

However, Gerry Armstrong hooked s shot into the net before Miller was dismissed in the 27th minute meaning that Spurs would be battling against an extra man.  Leeds were level before the half-time break as Ray Hankin was on the score-sheet for the Whites, but Chris Jones found the net in the second half to earn Tottenham the points .

01.09.1973
Division 1   Home    Lost   0-3

A Leeds United side, in an all yellow strip, took Tottenham apart in a 3-0 win that was breath-taking at times. 

Alan Gilzean had passed a late fitness test and Mike Dillon continued to deputise for the injured Mike England, Leeds had Bremner fit after sustaining a gashed shin, while Paul Reaney (ankle) and Allan Clarke (knee) were also declared fit to start.

In just the fourth minute, Billy Bremner, on the edge of the six yard box, headed Leeds ahead from a Lorimer free-kick with neither Ray Evans nor Martin Peters picking up the Leeds midfielder at the near post.  Ten minutes later the same combination doubled the lead with Bremner’s curled shot going in off the post.  Allan Clarke got the third in the 28th minute, finishing at the far post, after Bremner and Lorimer had created a ball in that Mick Jones missed, but his strike partner didn’t.  It was the a result that propelled Leeds on to the League title that season. 

The closest Spurs came to a goal was when Paul Reaney cleared Mike Dillon’s header off the line just after Leeds had opened the scoring and the same happened just before half-time.  Dillon crossed for Gilzean to head at goal from close range, but his glancing effort went wide, then Ralph Coates forced Harvey to a save with a shot in the second half and the Leeds keeper produced a good diving effort to stop Peters’ downward header.

FA Cup Sixth Round    Away    Lost   1-2

Leeds put Tottenham under heavy pressure in the early stages of the FA Cup Sixth Round tie at Elland Road, with the Spurs goal being peppered by shots, but they were not all on target and the team lead a charmed life.

Spurs worked their way back into the game and a move that flowed through Martin Peters, John Pratt and Ray Evans ended with a cross for Martin Chivers, whose downward header was saved by Gary Sprake. Then a few minutes before half time, John Pratt curled in a ball that confused the Leeds defence and despite Norman Hunter’s desperate attempts to clear the ball, it entered the net to give Spurs the lead.

However, the lead did not survive until the break, with Leeds equalising three minutes after the Spurs goal, with Allan Clarke netting.

Soon after the break, a header by Jack Charlton put Leeds into the lead and they held on to it until the end, nearly extending it on a number of occasions, with Pat Jennings performing very well to keep the home side out.

09.01.1971
Division 1   Away    Won   2-1

A Martin Chivers double gave Spurs both points at Elland Road in this First Division match that saw Leeds lose at home for the first time this season.

Spurs had a first minute injury to Jimmy Neighbour who sprained his ankle and this hampered their play, but Chivers’ first goal came early in the match as he ran through the centre of the Leeds defence and hit a shot low at Gary Sprake’s feet, beating him low down from the left of the box.  Leeds pulled level 15 minutes later, with Alan Clarke sticking away the opportunity.

Both Gilzean and Chivers worked hard to defend from the front and kept the Leeds defence on their toes, thus Sprake was called upon to perform heroics to keep out efforts from Gilzean and Peters before he was beaten again by Chivers for the winner that moved Tottenham into third place.

Division 1   Home    Won   3-1.

Mike England’s debut was marked by a famous tussle between Dave Mackay and Billy Bremner that saw ref Norman Burtenshaw have to remove the Spurs midfielder’s grasp on Bremner’s shirt.

The match itself saw a 13th minute goal for Johnny Giles, with a shot off the left hand post at the Paxton Road end set up by Bobby Collins, give Leeds the ideal start to their season.  However, Tottenham equalised when Mullery hit home Gilzean’s cross from the edge of the box.  Gilly headed home very early in the second half to give Spurs the lead, which was added to by Greaves, who beat three players, streaking away down the middle, to finish well to round off the scoring at 3-1.

Division 1   Home    Drew   0-0.

A goal-less draw at White Hart Lane between Spurs and Leeds United did little to whet the appetite of the fans who saw it, but both sides had their chances.

Jimmy Greaves hit the post with a header and Eddie Clayton’s low shot was saved by Gary Sprake, while Greaves lobbed a good chance over the bar with the goal gaping.  United’s chances went unconverted and the sides had to settle for a point each, with Spurs reduced to ten men when Frank Saul had to leave the game with an injury.

Two days after the Elland Road meeting, it was Leeds who were the away winners, taking the points at the Lane with a 4-1 victory.

United had taken the lead through George Meek, but before half-time, Dave Mackay equalised.

An error from Maurice Norman, who mis-kicked and let John McCole through to restore Leeds’ lead shocked Spurs fans and to make matters worse, Bobby Cameron glanced home a third goal for the visitors. Spurs could have got back in the game, but Cliff Jones missed a penalty by hitting the post and that was punished by McCole, who netted his second and Leeds’ fourth to take two points for the team that was to be relegated at the end of the season.

An early goal put Tottenham ahead courtesy of Johnny Brooks, but the lead was wiped out by a Leeds’ equaliser that came from a shot by Keith Ripley that deflected past Ditchburn off centre-half Harry Clarke that made it 1-1.  In a see-saw first half, Spurs went ahead again with George Robb heading in and another header – this time by Bobby Smith – made it 3-1 at the break.

Terry Medwin’s shot made it 4-1 and then Danny Blanchflower secured the points with a fifth Tottenham goal.

13.01.1954
FA Cup Third Round replay     Home    Won  1-0

Prior to this FA Cup Third Round replay, there was a tremendous downpour about half an hour before kick off.  This left ground staff worked tirelessly with brooms to clear the water from the pitch that resembled a lake. Rain had flooded the pitch for this Wednesday afternoon match, with the water being swept off the pitch, forcing fans back to drier parts of the terraces. Ronnie Burgess said it was the worst pitch he had ever played on, as there was little grass on show, just mud.

The game was little more than a matter of dodging the puddles and trying to free the ball from them, but the rain eased off after half-time and Spurs won courtesy of a 37th minute Les Bennett goal, hitting a low cross shot from Len Duquemin’s pass that saw the ball get stuck in the mud on the edge of the penalty area.

At half-time both teams changed their kit  as it was soaked through and muddy, but Leeds came close to taking the tie to a second replay, when John Charles netted, only for it to be ruled out for offside.
