Spurs v NUFC Video – 25 Year Classic

9 years ago

Twenty five years ago, White Hart Lane was a very different place, as was football in general.

Newcastle United travelled there in 1987 full of hope, a fifth round FA Cup tie had everybody excited, a dodgy penalty did for us on the pitch though.

This match is much talked about for other reasons, in the video commentary you’ll hear reference to ten thousand travelling fans – anyone who was there will tell you if felt like twice as many as half the world seemed to be packed onto the terraces.

If you look to behind the goal on the right you’ll see the Newcastle end, as anybody who was there will tell you, when the Hillsborough disaster happened two years later you couldn’t help looking back at this Spurs match because a combination of fences and massive overcrowding could have been fatal.

We bring you this classic action courtesy of The Mag’s YouTube channel.
