Earlier this week we looked back to the memorable 1994/5 season and the game that defined Rocket Ronny Rosenthal’s career. Going back a little further, 1977/78 saw Tottenham down to the old second division, but for those who were lucky enough to witness the games, it was a memorable campaign.
Top of the pile was our 9-0 demolition of Bristol Rovers when Colin Lee scored four and Ian Moores added a hat-trick. Lee had just arrived from Torquay and didn’t seem the most inspired signing, but what a debut he had!
In the days before 500 balls were used during a game, the club had to dig out an old ball to present to Moores at the end, and the match was also memorable for commentator John Motson using the words ‘John Pratt’ and ‘Pele’ in the same sentence.
Enjoy the game.
