    I was there!
    The game was v. Man Utd. Spurs won the 1st leg 2 – 0 when it was eventually played but lost the second leg 4 – 1.
    It was during the 2nd leg that Dave Mackay broke his leg the first time (the second time was during a reserve match v. Shrewsbury at White Hart Lane and I was there again!).
