Before the weekend I wrote an article for another site, with highlights of 10 classic games between Tottenham and Manchester United.
The one match that I didn’t think I’d be able to track down (because I’ve tried before and failed) was a thrilling 3-3 draw between the teams at Old Trafford back in 1986. The game was most notable for a brilliant diving header by Gary Mabbutt, which prompted the commentator John Motson to make the quote that appears in the title.
To my delight I found the game on YouTube and it wasn’t just the goals, but twelve minutes of delicious highlights to feast upon. The full article containing video of ten classic matches between Spurs and Manchester United can be found here, but for now, here’s those wonderful highlights of a match that I thought that I would only ever see play out in my memory again. Now to track down those four Martin Peters goals at Old Trafford from the seventies.
