22.01.2000 Premier League     Home     Lost     0-1

So, the same old story continues.  Oh, but for a player who can stick the ball in the back of the net.  But not for me those who started to boo the team during the match or barrack players.  It wasn’t that bad a performance, it was just the old failing of not taking our chances.  In the end, Wednesday had about three or four and took one.  Spurs had more, but didn’t convert any.  So we lost.  Tottenham Hotspur – the loser’s friend – giving Sheffield their first away win of the season.

The game started reasonably brightly and Spurs took the game to the Owls, although there seemed a lack of conviction.  Almost as though the goals would come without any trouble.  However, that is rarely the case with Spurs.  And so it proved.  Iversen denied a headed goal by Srnicek and the keeper stopped Armstrong from scoring from inside the box with a push around the post.  When the Czech did slip up, he caught one cross on his knees and a clearance fell to Clem, whose shot was diverted away from goal by Armo and Anderton could not head in the rebound.  Ginola put some good crosses in, but they were often found without anyone on the end.  The Frenchman had to produce a swerving shot from outside the box to get as close to a goal as the team could muster – his 20 yard effort bouncing back off the bar and the follow up was pushed away inelegantly by Srnicek when Iversen shot in.  The goal was against the run of play, but caught Spurs all at seas in defence.  Jonk was left in the penalty area and with Edinburgh coming across to challenge, Alexandersson was left free to shoot low past Walker.  The immediate response was not to throw things forward, but to start giving the ball away.  An old trait that was to recur during the second half.

With the turn around, Spurs could not produce as many efforts to trouble Srnicek and in truth, Sheffield probably had the better of the second spell.  One Carr shot from outside the box made the Owls keeper stretch to tip wide and one Ginola run ended with a shot into the side netting, while another zipped past the post.  Apart from that there was only the six-yard box scramble when the ball ricocheted off a couple of players legs, just out of Iversen’s reach and the miss by Armstrong when the ball fell to him three yards out and he managed to hit the post with only the keeper to beat.  His immediate substitution, along with Justin and Clem, did little to help the side. Korsten looked to be playing in a free role, but he didn’t appear to know where that was, although he did get one low shot on target.  In the end, Wednesday finished the stronger and if they could have finished better would have won by three or four.  De Bilde had one miss that was as bad as Armo’s, when he wriggled free in the area and missed from inside the six-yard box.

What normally would have been a hilarious interlude when the linesman had to remove his shirt, because of the failure of his microphone link with the ref, became an annoying interruption in a frustrating 90 minutes.  Too many players having an off day (again)??  Iversen will do well to have a worse game for the club, while Korsten and Anderton failed to impress.  Unfortunately, it was just like earlier in the season, when we presented the opposition with the ball and made things hard for ourselves.  When Spurs beat Sheffield Wednesday to go top, things didn’t seem so bad.  But that was a rare away success and like this was a rare home failure, Sheffield Wednesday were celebrating getting off the bottom of the league. Knowing Spurs, they will go and beat Chelsea in the next game … but then again ...

21.08.1999 Premier League     Away     Won     2-1

Hillsborough was bathed in sunshine for this encounter with under pressure Wednesday. In the warm up John Scales apparently strained his calf and was not able to start the game, so Spurs lined up with a frighteningly short back four of Carr, Perry, Taricco & Luke Young.  Fortunately Wednesday started with a couple of small front men although Booth caused some problems in the air as a second half substitute.

The Spurs defence seemed able to cope easily with the early Wednesday attacks with Perry in complete control.  Then in the 19th minute Taricco took a throw in on the left and the ball was returned to him by Ginola.  Taricco’s early cross found the head of Ferdinand who rose to head a classic centre forward’s goal into the net in front of the travelling Spurs fans. The lead was however short lived.  Ginola had drifted into central midfield and with Spurs moving forward David conceded possession.  With the defenders on the back foot Luke Young gave away a penalty from which Carbone equalised.  Ginola was clearly embarrassed as they lined up for the restart and Perry seemed to be suggesting Ginola should stay wide on the left where he can do damage to the opposition’s defence and not our own.

Spurs continued to probe and on 40 minutes should have been awarded a penalty. Some excellent movement eventually saw Ferdinand felled by Pressman as Les moved away from the goal with the ball. New Premier referee Mr. D’Urso turned a blind eye. Within a couple of minutes however Spurs were back in front. A quickly taken free kick by Ginola was swung across field. Iversen did extremely well in rescuing the situation, holding the ball up, and then delivering a timely pass to Leonhardsen. Oyvind cut inside and beat Pressman with a spectacular shot to the far top corner of the net. Rather than a chorus of ‘There’s only one Oyvind Leonhardsen’ Spurs fans opted for a simple ‘Yiddo, Yiddo’.

Half Time 1-2.

David did not appear for the second half and was replaced by Freund.  A wise move by George in the circumstances and given Ginola’s patchy performance on the day. Further chances came Spurs way. Ferdinand was unlucky to see his shot whistle past the far post after he had hustled Des Walker.  Close to the end of the game Iversen also went close with a lob which cleared Pressman and again went just wide. Between those two efforts came Wednesday’s best chance of an equalizer.  The towering  (amongst our defence) Booth won a header which looped over Walker and was dropping into the Spurs goal when Sherwood arrived from nowhere to clear off the line. It has to be said that Carbone was instrumental in every Sheffield Wednesday move and looked a star in a very poor side.  Thome who has been linked to Spurs looks poor and regularly made errors.  No wonder Wednesday don’t want to increase his pay.

For Spurs Perry was excellent at the back.  He looks a very good player. He is cool, calm, efficient and effective. A good buy who will probably now go on and play for England.  Leonhardsen also looks a good signing. His energy and enthusiasm are great assets, and he’s scoring goals from midfield.

A welcome win from a mediocre performance but 3 points and 3 consecutive league wins.  The first time since 1995 I believe. Another first was that Spurs sat proudly at the top of the Premier League on Saturday night.  Yes I know it’s early days and it’s a marathon not a sprint but at least the fans enjoyed a quick burst of: ‘WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE SAID WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE’. How many times will we sing that this season?.

09.01.1999 Premier League     Away     Drew     0-0

Hillsborough was the venue for Steffen Freund to make his Spurs debut similar to another German (Remember that Klinsman goal). Freund looked efficient and combative. He was booked in the second half for a robust tackle on Alexandersson, but in the early stages he, like the rest of the Spurs midfield, struggled with the pace and movement of Wednesday. Carbone was running the show and even beat Luke Young in the air on occasions. The lack of goals was as much down to poor finishing by Wednesday as Spurs defending. The situation was not helped by early changes. Ferdinand went up for a ball with Iversen outside the area and fell awkwardly in the 9th minute. He could not continue and was replaced by Armstrong. We always seem to have one of the three strikers unavailable.

After just under half an hour Anderton was replaced by Clemence. Darren had struggled all afternoon to get in to the game and must have been carrying the calf injury which caused his removal. Spurs did not look like winning the game and clearly George decided to settle for the draw when he replaced Ginola midway through the second half. To be fair Ginola had drifted in and out of the game with no one able to feed him the ball. Added to that Sinton looked exposed at full back and it is easy to understand why Edinburgh was brought on and Sinton moved further forward. The Spurs goal attempts consisted of one excellent header by Iversen from a Ginola cross which was cleared off the Wednesday line and a penalty claim from Ginola denied.

Overall a bit of a bore draw and some Spurs fans booed at the end. They have short memories. Last season Wednesday beat us at Hillsborough in a similar game and they won at White Hart Lane 3-0 in August. This was a hard earned point and a clean sheet gratefully received on a day when we did not play well. Hopefully both Ferdinand and Anderton can recover for the Wimbledon marathon.

22.08.1998 Premier League     Home     Lost     0-3.

This match report writing is getting very hard. What do you write that is new when the team produce a performance that was much the same as the previous week ??  Unbeaten at home since December, you wonder how we ever managed that. The side only decide to get going after conceding twice at the moment. The first, a cross that eluded the defence for Atherton to head past Walker and the second, a ball lost in midfield and a lob over the defence to Di Canio, who Walker denied, then did the same to Booth before the Italian scored at the third attempt. Sol had a powerful header come back off the post with Pressman beaten, but other chances were few and far between. Ginola ran at the new Owls right back and went down in the box early on, but nothing was given.

Second half saw Spurs switch to a three man back line, with Saib replacing Vega, but there was little difference in the outcome. Too often the ball was given away and when the Yorkshire side attacked, they had so much time and space, they must have thought they were playing in a testimonial. The third came from a free-kick bent around the wall and past Walker. Saib had a shot blocked and a couple of efforts off target, while Armstrong was denied by the on-rushing keeper. Nielsen also had a header from 10 yards well saved.

There was the now usual booing of the Tottenham players – not something that is designed to encourage them – with Vega, Fox, Walker and Ferdinand the main targets. Do the people doing this really think it is going to help the team ?? Sol got really upset and tried to get some support going. If the trend continues, then he won’t hang around at White Hart Lane and who would blame him. Walker did nothing to deserve the catcalls either – in fact, he saved Tottenham on a number of occasions and was left exposed too often. Tramezzani had another dodgy game, while Darren failed to produce a telling contribution. Only two games in and there is talk of crisis, with fans gathering outside the main entrance to call for Sugar’s resignation apparently. Tottenham lost their opening two fixtures last season, but on this showing there will have to be some drastic change in effort, tactics and understanding for things to be turned around.

21.02.1998 Premier League     Away     Lost     0-1.

Another defeat with little to cheer about. Another mistake punished with a goal. Another few chances saved well by the goalkeeper or stopped by the woodwork or not on target. Another game in which we failed to score.

Another game that seemed to sum up our season really. Sheffield Wednesday away – a match we should have got something out of, but going there to play for a point was a bit hopeful. I don’t really think we can hold out for 90 minutes without having something to defend. Although the team differed from that sent out to play Blackburn, the approach was totally at odds with the opposition. The home side has been letting goals in, so why not play like we did at Ewood Park ?? The final flourish was a bit too late and while luck was not on our side, it may have been an unfair reflection of the game to have come away with a point. It would have been hard on Wednesday to lose two points as well as Ian Nolan with a broken leg.  We wish him a speedy recovery.

With Saib’s arrival due this week, it will be interesting to see where he fits into all this and how he can adapt to the rigours of English football. Hopefully, he will provide a supply to the forwards (when fit) to get us some goals to get out of this position. The Bolton game suddenly becomes more than a six-pointer and along with the games against Palace and Barnsley could decide our fate.

19.10.1997 Premier League     Home     Won     3-2

Spurs took a 3-0 lead, but were pegged back in this Premier League meeting at the Lane. It was a fifth minute Jose Dominguez shot from long range that flew past Kevin Pressman in the Wednesday goal for his first in Spurs’ colours.  A corner fell to Campbell, who helped the ball on for Chris Armstrong to finish in the 39th minute.  Right on half-time, Fenn and Vega created a shooting opportunity for David Ginola to curl a shot into the goal to make it 3-0.

The second half saw more openings, but Tottenham could not apply the finishing touch, which allowed Wednesday to get back into the match.  In the 71st minute, Wayne Collins scrambled the ball in from close range and then Paolo Di Canio shot six minutes from the end made it a tense ending, but Tottenham held out for the points.

Mark Pembridge had the first chance in this Premier League meeting at Hillsborough, but a long range rocket from Peter Atherton in the 18th minute gave Wednesday the lead after Carbone’s free-kick was laid on by David Hirst and Andy Booth.  Sheringham, Fox, Sinton and Rosenthal all had shots, but it was Dean Austin’s long cross that was headed down by Sheringham for Nielsen to steer home past Kevin Pressman that brought Spurs level.

Only a double reaction save by Walker kept Pembridge’s shots out and even he could not prevent Wednesday taking the win in the 69th minute, as Booth shot home Carbone’s pass.  Spurs took the game to Wednesday right to the end and Rosenthal went closest with a late header that brushed the post.

21.12.1996 Premier League     Home     Drew     1-1

With Steffen Iversen and John Scales making their home debuts, this match saw two evenly matched sides fight out a 1-1 draw.

An Ian Nolan pile-driver gave the Owls the lead on 16 minutes after being set up by Mark Pembridge, but Tottenham drew level with a goal from Allan Nielsen, smuggling the ball past Pressman in the Wednesday goal with 29 minutes gone.

Sheringham hit the post and Fox, Iversen, Howells and Sinton all had good openings to score, but Ian Walker had to be alert to make a good stop from Andy Booth and Regi Blinker shot wide in the closing minutes when well-placed.

20.08.1994 Premier League     Away     Won     4-3

The arrival of a new superstar at Tottenham was heralded by the goal from Jurgen Klinsmann and a novel goal celebration poking fun at his media given reputation for diving.

A 19th minute goal from Teddy Sheringham gave Spurs the lead, when he directed the ball past Pressman after taking Anderton’s cross in space in the box.  That became 2-0 when Sheringham returned the compliment with a return ball to Anderton to run in the area and slide it into the net.

Wednesday weren’t finished and drew level through a Petrescu goal, taking Sheridan’s volley and coolly stroking home and then when Colin Calderwood raced back to deny Bart-Williams breaking into the box, but only succeeded in slamming it past Walker to make it 2-2 in the 66th minute.

With nineteen minutes remaining, a long ball was flicked on by Sheringham to Barmby, who took the ball to the edge of the area and shot between Des Walker’s legs and low past Pressman into the bottom corner of the net.

Spurs were now in the ascendancy and were passing the ball with supreme confidence.  They worked the ball through the midfield and out to Anderton on the right wing, where he produced a peach of a cross to the far post.  There, Klinsmann leapt and powered a header past the goalie to open his Spurs account and was joined by his team-mates in his “Dive” celebration.  Unfortunately, he had to leave the field shortly after following a clash of heads with Des Walker, but he was hailed the hero.

The home side continued to press and were rewarded with a third goal – the goal of the game – when David Hirst hit a screamer of a volley from 18 yards that ripped into the roof of the net, but it was to no avail as Tottenham took three points to wipe out half of the FA imposed reduction.

With Owls keeper Kevin Pressman in outstanding form, Spurs were denied in this game at White Hart Lane, in which Wednesday ran out 3-1 winners.

Central defender Simon Coleman’s far post finish to a 16th minute free-kick gave Sheffield Wednesday the lead before slack defending handed Mark Bright two goals, leaving Spurs a big margin to close.  Ronnie Rosenthal headed Darren Anderton’s 65th minute corner in from 18 yards to get one goal back on his debut, but Pressman athletically stopped efforts from Sedgley, Barmby and Rosenthal to keep the points safe for the visitors.

Spurs fell to a 0-2 defeat at White Hart Lane in a Premier League match against Sheffield Wednesday, who scored two second half goals.

Luck seemed to favour the Owls, as John Harkes was tackled on the edge of the area, with the ball falling kindly for Mark Bright to slot the ball past Erik Thorstvedt to give the home team the lead in the 54th minute. The second goal was all David Hirst’s own work, as he picked up a long ball to the right wing, before cutting inside to unleash a shot that flew in from the edge of the box with just two minutes remaining.

Two Paul Stewart goals handed Spurs victory over Sheffield Wednesday at  an icy Hillsborough.

02.01.1971 FA Cup Third Round     Home     Won     4-1

This FA Cup Third Round paired Spurs with Sheffield Wednesday, who had been relegated to Division Two at the end of the previous season and the game was almost postponed, with fog lifting from the ground just before the match kicked off.

A Martin Peters goal, finishing good work on the left allowed Spurs the lead, but it didn’t last too long as David Sunley pulled Wednesday level with a header after only a few minutes had elapsed.

Tottenham scored through an Alan Mullery penalty, two from Alan Gilzean and Martin Peters, while Wednesday got one back through David Sunley.  Alan Gilzean glanced Steve Perryman’s shot into the net past keeper Peter Springett to make it 2-1 before half-time.

Into the second half, Spurs went further ahead when Peter Springett brought down Martin Chivers in the area and Alan Mullery stepped up to convert, after his penalty-kick was saved.  A late goal to give Gilzean his second of the match wrapped up a 4-1 win.

Sheffield Wednesday left White Hart Lane with a 2-1 win over Spurs.

A free kick given to Wednesday for a foul by Alan Mullery just outside the penalty box resulted in David Ford crossing the dead-ball for Jim McCalliog to glance a header past Pat Jennings in the 35th minute.  There was only eight minutes left in the game when Spurs pulled level when Mike England met Jimmy Robertson’s corner with his head to beat Peter Springett in the visitors’ goal.

Travelling to Sheffield Wednesday, fourth placed Spurs played out a goal-less draw at Hillsborough.

The game was fast-paced and the home team put Tottenham under pressure for periods of the match, forcing Bill Brown and his defence to work hard to keep the Owls out.

Home keeper Ron Springett had to be alert early on to keep out Cliff Jones’ shot, but the ball ran loose to Les Allen, but he couldn’t keep his shot down and it went over the bar.

Late in the game, John White went close and Peter Johnson had to head the ball off the goal-line.

17.04.1961 Division 1     Home      Won     2-1.

Spurs were top of the table and expected to take the title with a stylish win in this First Division match with their closest rivals, Sheffield Wednesday.  However, the Yorkshire team were not that willing to roll over and a Don Megson goal gave the Owls the lead, flying in the face of the expected scripting for the game.

A long ball forward for Spurs was won by Terry Dyson, getting there ahead of Peter Swan and the winger headed on to Bobby Smith.  The striker made for the box, but found Megson in his way, so delicately lobbed the ball over the defender’s head, ran around him and volleyed the ball home past Springett in the Wednesday goal.

Drawing Spurs level, the goal inspired the team and within a minute, the match and the title were won.  Les Allen netted the second Tottenham goal and the celebrations began.

28.04.1951 Division 2     Home     Won     1-0

In the Spurs “Push and Run” side’s Second Division title win of 1949-50, it was Sheffield Wednesday who took the runners-up spot.  The following season saw the teams have differing fortunes.  Spurs were near the top of the First Division from New Year onwards, while Wednesday were close to the bottom of the table and their visit to White Hart Lane came with just two matches left.  Both teams needed the points for different reasons, with a win for Tottenham that would give them the title for the first time.

Spurs had stuttered in the run-in with Huddersfield Town winning at the Lane and Middlesbrough taking a point from Tottenham on Tees-side.  

When the match started, inside forward Eddie Baily almost broke through, but was denied by a timely tackle from Norman Curtis, before Wednesday made their attacking intent clear with a cross from Alan Finney picking out Redfearn Froggatt to fire a shot just wide of the mark.  Spurs broke and Len Duquemin struck a shot on goal from 10 yards out, forcing Owls keeper Dave McIntosh to plunge to palm away the ball.

Wednesday were giving as good as they got and Ted Ditchburn was called into action, keeping out a shot from striker Dennis Woodhead and then diving at Woodhead’s feet before he could get a shot away.  Ditchburn was left standing when Walter Rickett put the ball across for Wednesday, but nobody was available to put the ball in, then Froggatt fizzed an effort inches wide.

Spurs were lacking their usual accuracy in their passing, with only Peter Murphy testing McIntosh, while the visitors once more threatened and Alf Ramsey got back to clear Finney’s shot off the goal-line.  The ebb and flow of the game did not stop, with a tricky run up the wing by Les Medley ending with a flicked effort on goal that McIntosh did well to tip it wide.

An unusual nervousness seemed to be creeping through the Tottenham attack, resulting in good play being spurned in the last third, but with only a minute remaining in the first half, Spurs made a telling attack.

Ron Burgess was on a strong run that was almost ended by a fearsome tackle by Gerry Henry, but the Welshman managed to nick the ball on to Eddie Baily, wide on the right.  Good movement ahead of him by Duquemin and Medley opened up space for him to run past three Wednesday defenders and then laid the ball off to Medley, in turn finding a pass to Duquemin.  With the keeper coming out and with two full backs bearing down on the Channel Islander, Len showed his goal-scoring ability by reaching the ball before the opposition and prodding it into the net to give Spurs the lead with half a minute remaining.

The Spurs crowd roared their approval and the team went into the dressing room in good spirits, only to find out that second place Manchester United were leading  Huddersfield Town 3-0.  However, the crowd’s buoyant atmosphere and the confidence of a goal scored at a vital psychological time gave Tottenham the filip they needed.

The second half was almost one-way traffic, with McIntosh keeping Spurs at bay.    Medley put in a cross which hit Curtis’ hand, but the ref didn’t see it, while the keeper beat out Murphy’s pile-driver and then managed to get enough on the ball to take Ramsey’s bullet of a shot over the top.  McIntosh was getting anything in the way to prevent Tottenham scoring and his face was put to good use to deny Baily, who hit a powerful shot on target and then produced a fine save to push out Walters’ effort that looked as though it might end up in the roof of the net.  

Walters was having little luck and the post kept his next shot out, with Murphy also going close until Curtis popped up to head off his own line.  With time running out, Sheffield Wednesday decided to move further up the pitch to try to salvage something from the match.  Woodhead tested Ditchburn’s reflexes and and the forward was through, but when poised to pull the trigger, he slipped and the chance was gone.

Spurs were happy with keeping possession and when the final whistle was blown, the players were joyous and the crowd erupted, as the two points had sealed the First Division championship for the club for the first time.  Unfortunately, the Duquemin shot that gave Spurs the victory proved damaging to Wednesday, whose relegation was confirmed a week later.
