Tottenham on this Day

11th March, 1995

Liverpool 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2 FA Cup 6th Round

Scorers: Sheringham, Klinsmann

Team: Walker; Austin, Calderwood, Mabbutt, Edinburgh; Barmby, Howells, Anderton, Rosenthan; Klinsmann, Sheringham

One of the truly memorable performances of the decade. Having fought back at Southampton Spurs had a visit to Anfield as their reward but it wasn’t a ground with many happy memories for them.

Liverpool took the lead late in the first half with a headed goal from Robbie Fowler but Teddy Sheringham managed to equalize in the 45th minute.

In the second half Spurs played much better and it looked set for a replay but with two minutes remaining, Sheringham put Jurgen Klinsmann through to score the winner.

A great result for Spurs but sadly it was not built upon as Spurs produced one of their worst semi-final performances when losing to Everton. At the end of the season Klinsmann returned to Germany and Spurs lost ground on the clubs around them and they have been trying to catch up ever since.

    Always like photos of Jimmy Greaves scoring. 47 years ago. Was a good time to be around, Spurs were in the middle of a long unbeaten run in Cup and League. One of my favourite Beatles songs, Strawberry Fields Forever, was in the charts. Spurs 1967 were one my favourite teams, the recovery after the Double team was underway.

      One of those games where it could have gone wrong but class won through to give us a great end to the season with the Cup Final win.

      Unfortunately that team didn’t take off as we’d thought it would and it wasn’t until the early 70s that it kicked on but by then JPG had gone.
