Tottenham Hotspur Change

Tottenham Hotspur Gideon Coe

Somehow we got tickets to the FA Cup Semi Final at Wembley in April 1991. We were up high and there was something of a restricted view. So I'd like to say that I saw Gascoigne's free-kick clearly but in truth all I can remember is a moment when Seaman went to save it followed by a huge noise and being pushed about two rows further forward.

We were soon two up and then I had a very good view when Arsenal scored before half time. The second half was nerve-jangling, life-ageing stuff but when Lineker scored the third goal we could breath a little.

The celebrations were immense. We walked most of the way home to Stoke Newington. Kept it quiet once we got there. Though not that quiet.
