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.
