Today’s Hotspur History Features Tottenham v Leicester City in the 1999 League Cup Final

***Video Below***

The cup was then named the Worthington Cup after taking over sponsorship from Coca-Cola. Below you will find our road to Wembley results, I think it was the year Ginola scored that goal agaisnt Barnsley in the FA Cup quater final.

Round 2, 1st leg: Brentford 2–3 Tottenham Hotspur

Round 2, 2nd leg: Tottenham Hotspur 3–2 Brentford

Round 3: Northampton Town 1–3 Tottenham Hotspur

Round 4: Liverpool 1–3 Tottenham Hotspur

Quarter-final: Tottenham Hotspur 3–1 Manchester United

Semi-final, 1st leg: Tottenham Hotspur 0–0 Wimbledon

Semi-final, 2nd leg: Wimbledon 0–1 Tottenham Hotspur

I just noticed we scored 3 goals in 5 consecutive matches. The final itself would only ever be remembered by us Spurs faithful, it was the sort of match the neutrals would have forgotten a long long time ago. Both teams were cautious but it was Tottenham who edged the match in my opinion and deserved the 1-0 win. Robbie Savage was on the pitch to wind up the Spurs players rather than play football.

If you take a look back at our team, it was a mixture of good players and players I would now call pants. It brings back some great memories of Ginola I have. I was watching this one at home and when Justin Edinburgh got sent off, I like a lot of you suspected the worst, I thought we would be clinging on for dear life and Leicester would take the game to us but nothing really changed. I was braced for extra time and then Iversen went on a great run which resulted in Allan Nielsen scoring the winner deep into injury time, needless to say I creamed my pants and spilt my beer everywhere.

I am too good to you lot, I spent hours making this video for you, just like the West Ham video I couldn’t find any other compilations on the net so this might be unique so feel free to nab yourself a copy and download it at will. Remember the Tottenhamv Sporting game can be seen by joining the forum where I will embed live streams for the match and future Tottenham games, so it will pay off if you join.

  1. Justin Edinburgh, lord help us, we would have better off with the Duke of Edinburgh.

  2. as a barnsley fan i can tell you that you are out by a season that! goal in the fa cup was the year before so much so that if it wasnt for us losing to your in one of our last matches of the season you could of gone down yourselves just goes to show you how quickly things can change

  3. great memories, first ever cup final I went to (hopefully first of many) and despite the relatively dull game, it shows what supporting a football team is all about, moments of glory. Almost in tears at Ginola at the end! Further intensifies my hatred for george graham who forced the great man out of white hart lane!!
