Video of the Day: Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur, April 1985

Leicester City’s one-one draw at Old Trafford yesterday means that the champagne in the East Midlands will remain on ice for now, at least. A second opportunity for Leicester to win the title comes this evening at Stamford Bridge, where a failure on the part of Tottenham Hotspur to win there for the first time in twenty-six years would similarly mean the Premier League title heading to The King Power Stadium. And that may well be enough to cause some sort of celebration amongst Chelsea supporters at the end of a season from which they’ve been unable to pull...

Video of the Day: West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur, January 1965

At White Hart Lane this evening, West Bromwich Albion could, if they haven’t already departed on their summer holidays, make the destination of this year’s Premier League trophy little more than a mathematical matter. Spurs need a win in order to cling onto the coat-tails of Leicester City at the top of the table, however remote that may already feel after their demolition of Swansea City yesterday. This morning, though, we’re gong back more than half a century to a match that was West Bromwich Albion’s first in front of the cameras of Match Of The Day. Albion went...

Video of the Day: Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur, February 1976

Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Potteries to play Stoke City this evening in a Premier League match that may have a considerable bearing on where the league title ends up going this season. Should Spurs win, the pressure will increase just a little on the league leaders Leicester City. A failure to do so, however, will surely mean that the gap is too big to bridge with just five games of the season left to play and the club from the East Midlands will become the most unlikely champions that English football has ever seen. Title challenges were not...

Video of the Day: Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United, March 1979

The mid-to-late 1970s were a traumatic period in some ways for both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Both clubs seemed to suffer after emerging from the shadow of a giant of a manager – Matt Busby in the case of Manchester United and Bill Nicholson in the case of Tottenham Hostpur. Both had been relegated and bounced straight back – United in 1974 and Spurs three years later, and by the spring of 1979 both clubs were both back in the top flight and trying to figure out a way of stopping the recent domestic dominance of Liverpool in...

Video of the Day: Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur, March 1985

In tomorrow afternoon’s late kick-off, Tottenham Hotspur travel to play Liverpool in a match that is critical to Spurs’ chances of both staying in touch with Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table and staying a step ahead of third placed Arsenal. Spurs haven’t won at Anfield since May 2011, but a five year run without a win there is nothing in comparison with their longest, a record that stretched from 1912 to this morning’s match, in May 1985 – seventy-three victory free years. Having won the Football League Championship and the European Cup at the...
