On This Day In Spurs History: 27th August
1988 – On this day in 1988 we were meant to start off our season with a home game against Coventry, but the match was eventually called off, as we were refused a safety certificate, following the redevelopment of the East Stand.
The decision was only made six hours before kick off, leaving fans frustrated at not being able to watch the debut of our new signing Paul Gascoigne.

“Robert Maxwell’s record is exemplary. He has always been prepared to invest heavily in football at a time when others are turning their backs on the game. Some people seem to doubt him, but they don’t know the man.” – Irving Scholar
