    Who was there the day Tottenham Hotspur came to town, having raced into a 2 goal lead we pegged it back to 2 - 2 with John Hall in the second half almost flattening Cyril Knowles with a block buster that he got his head on to make a great clearance header off the line, not a bad old side they put out on that day :
    Jennings, Kinnear, Knowles, Mullery, England, Beal, Johnson (Pearce), Greaves, Gilzean, Perryman, Morgan.

    I believe this was the celebration after Bruce Stowell had equilised for City.

    I was. Amazing day. I got taken in to the balcony above the tunnel to watch the game, I was 10 at the time. Abiding memory is of the number of Spurs fans being brought up the tunnel with blood streaming and calling us fecking animals. What a game though

    I believe a few got in the wrong end, and at that time away fans in the home end didn't go down well.

    Great occasion, just look at the crowd wedged into the kop.
    Was packed in the Bradford end with my schoolmates, was certain Hall's shot was in and couldn't understand why I was the only one cheering.
    Optimistically expected us to win the replay.

    I remember listening to the replay and losing 5-0. Mike England being interviewed after the match said something along the lines of " what do you expect, we should be beating a "tin pot" outfit like Bradford (note no City)" I've hated Tottingham Spotshurs ever since. Vile club.
