13.01.1996 Premier League     Home     Won     1-0

Spurs scored the only goal of this poor match in the second half.  Sol Campbell, making his 100th Spurs appearance, took the ball up the left wing with players supporting in the penalty box.  The defender’s cross to the far post looked harmless enough, but a jump by Chris Armstrong met the ball and his header went over and across the keeper and into the net to give Spurs all three points with his 65th minute goal.

Tottenham’s best chances had come from Teddy Sheringham, who had a shot cleared off the line and Justin Edinburgh, who brought a good low save from Immel at his near post.  The German keeper also stopped efforts from Sheringham and Armstrong, with Walker doing well to keep out Niall Quinn and Uwe Rosler, before Rosler struck a shot that bounced away off the post, leaving City to return home with nothing for their trip to London.

19.08.1995 Premier League     Away      Drew     1-1

At the start of the season, Spurs went to Maine Road and went ahead ten minutes before half time, when a long pass forward to Ronnie Rosenthal, wide left just outside the box, pulled the ball back to substitute Kevin Scott.  The defender put in a cross to the far post for Teddy Sheringham who was unmarked to head past goalkeeper Eike Immel.

22.10.1994 Premier League      Away      Lost     2-5

Spurs were taken apart by a fluent Manchester City side, but some better finishing might have brought about a closer result. Former Spurs forward Paul Walsh gave City a 15th minute lead somewhat against the run of play, when he converted Niall Quinn’s pass, but home goalkeeper Andy Dibble fouled Jurgen Klinsmann a quarter of an hour later, allowing Ilie Dumitrescu the opportunity to successfully tuck away the spot-kick.  However, Manchester City went into the break with a 3-1 lead, thanks to Niall Quinn scoring with a header in the 41st minute and Walsh shooting home his second in the last minute of injury time before the interval.

Dumitrescu narrowed the gap a minute after the second half started, but City went on to add goals from a header by Steve Lomas in the 52nd minute and Gary Flitcroft in the 79th to run out 5-2 winners.

24.03.1993 Premier League     Home     Won     3-1

Manchester City’s mid-week visit to White Hart Lane ended in a 3-1 Premier League defeat.

Spurs took a 23rd minute lead in this Wednesday night match, when Darren Anderton shot the ball past Tony Coton after Teddy Sheringham had taken a right wing cross down into his team-mate’s path.  With two minutes left before half-time, Nayim extended the lead to 2-0, running into the left side of the penalty area and beating two players before curling the ball around them and into the far side of the net.

Mike Sheron pulled one back for City just on the hour mark, firing home from the edge of the box when a shot was blocked and rebounded to him, but 87 minutes had elapsed when Andy Turner’s run from halfway and shot under Coton completed the scoring to give Spurs the three points.

07.03.1993 FA Cup Sixth Round     Away      Won     4-2

Although hooligans marred this FA Cup Sixth round match, the game itself was a fine one, with Nayim scoring a hat-trick for Tottenham.  

Mike Sheron headed in a Terry Phelan cross after just three minutes to give the early advantage to City, but Nayim equalised when he hit a low half volley through a forest of legs in the box from 20 yards, after a long throw had been headed out to him.  Right on half-time, Tottenham took the lead when Paul Allen played the ball in from the left wing to Sedgley and he drove a shot past Tony Coton.

Into the second period, Spurs worked a throw-in on the right through Dean Austin to Sheringham, whose shot crashed back off the foot of a post.  It dropped in the middle of the box, where Nayim got the ball stuck under his foot but reacted quickly to put Tottenham 3-1 up.  The midfielder completed his hat-trick when Paul Allen found him near the penalty spot after a good run down the right wing.  He stopped the ball, picked his spot and curled it in around Coton.  Man. City fans invaded the pitch at 4-1, hoping to get the game abandoned, with Police horses also getting on the grass, but the match ended with a very good win for Spurs, who went on to the semi-final.  The best goal of the match was scored by Terry Phelan, who slalomed through the Tottenham side and finished at the end of a 50 yard run.

Teddy Sheringham also missed a penalty, probably because he was informed by City keeper Coton that he wouldn’t get out alive if he scored !!

28.11.1992 Premier League     Away      Won     1-0

A single goal earned Tottenham a Premier League win at Maine Road.

A Spurs free kick led to a spell of head tennis in the City penalty area, with the ball hitting the bar.  The goal came halfway through the second half, with Nayim’s long ball releasing Kevin Watson on the left.  The youngster’s ball into the box came off Terry Phelan and beat Tony Coton at his near post with 77 minutes gone to decide the match in Tottenham’s favour.

28.10.1992 League Cup Fourth Round     Away      Won     1-0

A single goal decided this League Cup Fourth Round encounter at Maine Road.

With just 14 minutes on the clock, Erik Thorstvedt launched a big kick downfield and Vinny Samways latched onto Nicky Barmby’s flicked header on and smashed a low left footed shot into the bottom corner of the net from the edge of the box.  Thorsvedt then turned goal-stopper, with a succession of saves from Simpson, White, Sheron and Quinn’s diving header.

When Sheringham missed Paul Allen’s cross from the right wing, Barmby snuck in behind and forced a good save from Coton, while Teddy and Samways also tested the City custodian.  However, both goals stayed intact and Tottenham progressed by the narrowest of margins.

Spurs were denied a First Division win at Maine Road thanks to a late Manchester City comeback.  City had been rocked 24 hours before the game when manager John Bond resigned and John Benson took charge at short notice. A dull first half saw Ossie Ardiles have to leave the field after a heavy tackle from David Cross and Falco went close twice, Perryman hit a shot just too high and then Garry Brooke shot over, as the high point of proceedings.  The second half caught light when Terry Gibson was denied a goal, when his volley, taken on the run, was pushed up onto the post by Joe Corrigan.  City were also unlucky, hitting the woodwork with Cross’ shot bouncing off the inside of the post and away.  Clemence was called upon to make a sharp save diving to stop Asa Hartford’s low volley, but he was beaten to a Tommy Caton cross by Bobby McDonald and the header hit the bar.

It was Tottenham who took the lead, when Garth Crooks broke down the right and played in Gibson, who was brought down by Nicky Reid for a penalty.  Brooke stepped up to dispatch it high into the net, after Corrigan had been booked for protesting.  This inspired Spurs and Roberts got to the line before turning the ball inside to Falco, who passed to Villa for the midfielder to spread the play wide right.  Brooke’s first time cross was just nicked away from Falco, but Cross should have equalised when Bodak’s cross went over Clemence and the striker dived in to head the ball down but it went into the ground and bounced over the bar.

Spurs broke on City when Villa won a header in midfield and Gibson latched onto it, but Corrigan rushed out at his feet.  Cross again mis-fired when he scuffed a Bodak cross wide with the goal at his mercy.  That cost City, as Brooke won a header and Falco flicked it on for Gibson to finish low past Corrigan’s right hand to make it 2-0.

The points looked like heading back South with Spurs, but Ray Ranson’s long cross was headed back across goal by Cross and the ball hit Perryman’s hand to conceded a penalty, which DenisTueart slotted just inside Clemence’s right hand post.  That was in the 79th minute and two minutes later, City were level.  Ricky Villa was booked for a tackle on Tueart and from the free-kick, Caton headed the ball into the goalmouth.  Cross’ header was tipped onto the bar by Clemence and the striker was first to react, nudging the ball wide of the keeper’s left hand.

Spurs were still looking to win the game and Villa won the ball in midfield, setting Crooks away on the left and his shot was touched wide by the diving Corrigan, but then Crooks was booked for not letting the keeper kick the ball out a short while later.  There was one last chance for the home side, with Hartford cutting into the middle of the area from the right to drill a low shot a couple of feet wide.

26.09.1981 Division 1     Away      Won     0-1

The heavy rain that fell in Manchester, as Spurs visited Maine Road, may have affected Tommy Caton’s judgment, when he left a ball into the box, allowing Falco to set up Galvin, who forced Corrigan to save.

Martin O’Neill produced a shooting chance for Boyer, but Clemence was equal to his effort, diving left to push the ball away, but the keeper wasn’t covered in glory, when a free kick from the left slipped through his hands and Caton sliced a shot that went over after landing on top of the bar. Clem did well when McDonald ran into the box and headed at goal from 15 yards out, pushing the ball aside and there was another City chance, when Boyer headed across goal to Gow, who managed to stumble over the ball and put it wide.

Into the second half, a scramble from a corner ended with Tueart producing an overhead kick that got stuck in a puddle in front of goal and it allowed Roberts to kick it off the line.

Spurs broke through when Ricky Villa passed to Galvin to shoot and Corrigan saved by pushing the ball up into the air. A defensive header went straight to Steve Archibald on the edge of the box. He took it on his chest and struck a shot at goal that Mark Falco deflected in to put Tottenham ahead.

A long left wing cross from Bond was headed into the side-netting by Reeves and then a free-kick went through Clemence’s hands again leaving O’Neill a shot at goal, but it was blocked and Spurs took the points back home.

01.09.1979 Division 1     Home    Won     2-1

Tottenham’s first win of the season came in their fourth game, a 2-1 home win over Manchester City.

Losing Ossie Ardiles to a sprained ankle in the early stages of the match made things harder for Spurs, but Glenn Hoddle’s first half goal was steered into the net with a neat touch at the Park Lane end and Spurs went close when Terry Yorath was denied by a save and Chris Jones struck a shot against the underside of the crossbar.  Barry Daines made a good save coming out to thwart Mike Channon and then in the second half, he did well to block a Steve MacKenzie shot at close range.  Channon was denied again when Hughton cleared a shot from the England striker off the line. 

Our lead was doubled halfway through the second half by Chris Jones.  Hughton played the ball down the line for sub Mark Falco to cross invitingly into the penalty area, where Jones met it was a firm header.  City responded immediately, as MacKenzie pulled a goal back for City with a close range header within a minute and then Mike Robinson went close after running from near the halfway line.

Don McAllister was left limping through the final part of the match with injury and the substitution having already been used.

03.02.1979 Division 1     Home     Lost     0-3

Goals from Mike Channon, Peter Barnes and a Gary Owen penalty saw City ease to a 3-0 win at White Hart Lane to ruin Tony Galvin and Stuart Beavon’s debuts for Tottenham.

Manchester City kicked off defending the Paxton Road goal and it was Tottenham who should have had a penalty for handball, but straight away City broke away and Steve Perryman hauled down Peter Barnes in the box to concede a penalty that Gary Owen stepped up to convert.  Another break, from a Spurs corner saw Barnes outpace Perryman down the City left from the halfway line and shot across Kendall from a narrow angle to make it 2-0.

With Deyna replacing the injured Dave Watson at the break, City attacked with confidence and when Barnes’ left wing cross fell to Mick Channon eight yards out, it looked a goal all over, but Mark Kendall pushed the effort one-handed over the bar to make a fine stop.

City player Paul Power earned a booking for a foul on Galvin, who had been booked for kicking Colin Bell.  Lacy also went in the book for an agricultural challenge on Barnes.  McAllister was also booked for another foul on Barnes in the build up to the third goal.  However, City would not be denied and Barnes was once more the architect, with a left wing run ending in a cross for an unmarked Channon to head past Kendall to wrap up a 3-0 win in front of a watching Rinus Michaels, the Dutch national manager.

Goals from Gary Owen and Ron Futcher earned City a 2-0 victory at Maine Road in Division One in a match where City keeper Joe Corrigan had a very good game and our attack failed to put away the chances we created.

Peter Taylor was clear on three occasions in the first half and was denied a goal by either Corrigan or the bar and when Spurs did hit the net, Ossie Ardiles’ “goal” was disallowed for offside. 

In the 57th minute, City went ahead when Gary Owen placed a curling shot that found the net and with 78 minutes gone, Ron Futcher put the game beyond Tottenham when he headed in John Pratt’s mis-hit back pass.

A 0-5 thrashing was an ignominious end to Tottenham’s time in the top flight, as they were relegated with this defeat at Maine Road.

Joe Royle capitalised on Keith Osgood’s slip and crossed for Peter Barnes to volley at goal, with Pat Jennings keeping it out with his legs.  From the ensuing corner, central defender Tommy Booth scored in the 19th minute with a header and that was the only score of the first half, leaving Tottenham with some hope that they might get back into the game.

Spurs went close at the start of the second half, when John Pratt completely missed the ball and it rebounded off a City player to Glenn Hoddle, who could only poke it wide of the goal.  When Barnes headed on a long clearance, Dennis Tueart seized on it and finished first time from just inside the box to double the lead.  Barnes was through on goal when he dummied Jennings, putting him on the floor, before dinking the ball over him for the third and the fourth came when a corner was headed out, but straight to Asa Hartford, who thumped a low volley in from 16 yards out.  City completed the humiliation when Tueart ran clear to square the ball for Brian Kidd, who was completely unmarked to score the fifth.

Spurs had been holding their own until the 55th minute, when Denis Tueart put the home team into the lead. When Alan Oakes scored in the 76th minute, the match looked beyond Tottenham, but a 30 yard screamer from Keith Osgood put the side back in the game.

Spurs lost out in the odd goal in five at the Lane as City took two First Division points.

Rodney Marsh scored the first goal of the game, but Martin Chivers was on the mark, when he shot home after being picked out by an astute pass from Steve Perryman.  Francis Lee scored a second half brace, with the second being allowed despite it looking more than suspiciously like handball as he punched the ball in. Chivers’ second of the match narrowed the score to 3-2, hitting a left footed shot into the net at the Park Lane end but it was no consolation as the feeling of being cheated remained.

Chivers also went close to a third with a shot from the right of the goal, but while his effort beat Joe Corrigan it also beat the far post and went just inches wide.

A goal from Jimmy Greaves was only scant consolation for Tottenham, as Manchester City ran out 3-1 winners at White Hart Lane on their way to the First Division Championship.  Colin Bell scored a goal in each half and then Mike Summerbee hit the Citizens third goal after 74 minutes.  Greaves’ penalty six minutes from the end was not enough to inspire Spurs to get anything from the game.

Spurs took an early lead through Jimmy Greaves, but with the temperature falling as the game went on, ice started to form on the surface of the pitch.  City hit back to win the match 4-1 in the end with goals from to complete the ‘Ice Ballet’ that the City fans regard as one of the best games at Maine Road the club played.   The victory was helped by the fact that at 0-1 behind (to a Jimmy Greaves goal), City captain Tony Book advised his team-mates to take their studs out of their boots and this helped their game no end.  “We were knocking the ball around like it was a bowling green while Spurs were slipping all over the place,” said Colin Bell.  Alan Mullery remembers, “The referee checked the pitch, and not only was it bone hard, there were icicles on the pitch as well.  We said, ‘Well, we’re up here, let’s give it a go’.”

Gilzean’s early lofted ball into the box brought the City keeper Mulhearn into action, as he dived out to get to the ball before Frank Saul.  Despite being up against the conditions, Heslop’s foul on Saul handed Tottenham a free-kick just outside the box, Jimmy Greaves was on hand to touch in a deflected Knowles free-kick with his first touch of the game, six minutes in to find the net from ten yards out.  Colin Bell drove an equaliser past Pat Jennings to make it 1-1 in the 18th minute after Spurs failed a number of times to clear an attack and the ball pinged about the penalty area before running to the left of Jennings’ goal for the City midfielder to score into the opposite bottom corner.   Jennings had to be alert after a good City passing move finished with Bell poking a shot at goal from the 18 yard line, but Pat grabbed the ball and held onto it in the slippery conditions.

Mike Summerbee started the City surge with a 50th minute header to Young’s left wing cross, then Tony Coleman fired the ball home from close range after Francis Lee had shot against the post after 54 minutes and Neil Young scored with 15 minutes left, latching onto a loose ball when his pass to Bell in the area saw Jennings come to block him.

Manchester City left White Hart Lane with a point in this First Division encounter.

A City goal from David Connor gave the visitors the lead into the second half, but Jimmy Robertson got an equaliser to salvage a point for Tottenham, although, sadly, they were more concerned about Phil Beal’s broken forearm which put him out for the remainder of the season.

Spurs were taken apart by a rampant City side on a snow white pitch at Maine Road, which started to thaw as the game began. Starting the game well, it was a shock to Spurs when Joe Hayes opened the scoring after 30 minutes, with Peter Dobing doubling the score two minutes later.  With half-time approaching Neil Young struck to make it 3-0 and two minutes after the interval Dave Mackay deflected Dobing’s effort past John Hollowbread.  Peter Baker was forced into putting the ball into his own net by pressure from Colin Barlow five minutes later and the sixth City goal rounded off Dobing’s hat-trick with 57 minutes of the match having elapsed.

Two Jimmy Greaves goals were Tottenham’s only consolation from the trip North.

Spurs dropped their first point of the campaign in a home game against Manchester City, after a historic 11-match winning start.  The game was played on a Monday evening, with the game delayed as Bobby Smith and Danny Blanchflower had both been in international duty on opposing sides on the original date two days before.

A sad occasion coinciding with a visit to the Lane of Manchester City saw 37,539 spectators stand in pouring rain to pay their respects to the Busby Babes who had died in a plane crash at Munich two days before.

However, Tottenham turned on the style as they gained revenge for the City win in the away match with a 5-1 win of their own. Coming into the game with a run of four games without a win, Spurs found themselves a goal behind as Joe Hayes gave City a lead after 38 minutes, but Spurs hit back with a second half surge.  Tommy Harmer had a penalty saved by Bert Trautmann and minutes later Johnny Brooks slid home the ball after the keeper had stopped Smith’s fierce drive.  Then came a Bobby Smith hat-trick to put Spurs out of reach.

Smith even set up the fifth goal for George Robb four minutes from the end of the game to cap a fine solo performance.

Spurs were in Lancashire for the second time in three days as they went to Maine Road to face Manchester City at the start of the 1956-57 season in a match that ended in a 2-2 draw.

City had gone ahead in the eighth minute through Roy Clarke, but Spurs pulled level in the 28th minute when Harmer’s cross produced a good finish from Johnny Brooks.

Clarke was on the mark again when he netted his and City’s second shortly after the start of the second half and it took Spurs until two minutes from the end to make it 2-2 when Medwin grabbed a late equaliser.

17.03.1956 FA Cup Semi-final     Villa Park      Lost     0-1

Bobby Johnstone, known to the Maine Road faithful as Bobby Dazzler, scored the goal that took City back to Wembley, where they fulfilled captain Roy Paul’s vow to win the Cup in 1956 after losing to Newcastle in the previous year’s final. An early corner by George Robb dropped for Dave Dunmore to drive a shot at goal that beat Bert Trautmann, but not Leivers on the goal-line and his block was only just out of reach of Len Duquemin hoping to poach a goal.  Bobby Smith was denied a goal by a questionable offside flag on 30 minutes, with City getting their game together and five minutes before the break, Johnstone headed home a left wing cross from point-blank range to break the deadlock.

Second half injuries hampered Maurice Norman and George Robb a little, with Johnny Brooks taking Norman’s place in defence.  Harry Clarke was in fine form in the back line and Norman’s presence up front almost brought a leveller, but his shot was scuffed at goal, proving no threat.

However, in the last few minutes, it appeared that Spurs should have had a penalty when Trautmann dropped the ball and then grabbed the ankle of Spurs forward in the box, but the referee played on, consigning Tottenham to their third consecutive semi-final defeat at Villa Park.

This from Michael Tibby : –.

Spurs were not doing particularly well in the league and had been playing Tommy Harmer at outside right for a few games. Semi-Final day was St Patrick’s Day and a photo in the paper showed Danny Blanchflower (I think on the platform of Euston Station) pinning shamrock onto Dave Dunmore’s lapel.

Because of rainy weather and a possible heavy pitch at Villa Park, Tommy Harmer (a genius on his day) had been dropped by Manager Jimmy Anderson in favour of Dave Dunmore, who had never fulfilled his potential.

Spurs lost 1-0 to a Bobby Johnstone goal, but there was tremendous controversy concerning George Robb.  Late in the game he was held by the legs by City’s German born ex paratrooper goalkeeper Bert Trautmann (who was to become the hero of the next year’s 1955 Cup Final). Extensive newspaper photographs, in frame by frame sequence, show George Robb, with the goal at his mercy, being clearly held by Trautmann with the ball to one side.  No-one could understand how the referee managed to miss this incident.

Bert received a lot of hate mail over this and obviously, being not long after WWII, you can imagine what it was like.

11.01.1930 FA Cup Third Round     Home     Drew     2-2

Tottenham were taken back to Maine Road for a replay in this FA Cup Third round tie, but did enough to win. Lewis Barber in goal for Manchester City played a blinder, but Manchester City took the lead amid controversy when Ernie Toseland’s goal was ruled out and a free-kick given to Spurs, but the ref spoke to the linesman and awarded the goal to City.

City were reduced to ten men, when Barber punched his own full-back Mick Ridley, who had to leave the field with concussion after the match restarted for the second half.  Tottenham capitalised on their numerical advantage, as Osborne went past Jimmy McMullan and Bill Felton to shoot Tottenham level.  George Cook converted Andy Thompson’s cross in the 75th minute to give Tottenham what looked like a winning lead, but City came back with Sam Cowan equalising with a 25 yard shot with five minutes left.

Tottenham’s Christmas Day visit to Hyde Road ended in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City in the First Division after both sides had made shaky starts to the season.

Bert Middlemiss had given Spurs the lead just before half-time, with Jimmy Cantrell adding a second after the break after he had missed end of the first half with an injury.  With the heavy pitch taking its toll on the players, Tottenham tired and with fifteen minutes remaining George Wynn headed in a goal for City.  The scorer missed the last part of the match retiring injured and the home team grabbed a point when Bill Bottomley equalised five minutes from time to make it 2-2.
