Can only be RV at the 81 FAC replay, watching from behind the goal with him powering through the City defence and me screaming 'shoot ya bastard'

Such an unbelievable release of emotion ... Then seeing Steve Perryman hoist the cup for the team and all of us supporters - a culmination of fifteen years of me going to Spurs and 8 years of middling diddling stuff including the Div.2 year.
I went to every home game in div 2. Bolton Wanderers got right on my nerves. Didn't we play them about 5 times that season?

Gazza's Free kick for me still burns bright. Weirdly so does that tackle in the '91 Cup Final..can remember it with such clarity its as if it was yesterday. Sadly Gazza was never the same player after that
.
Everyone talks of the Charles one being awful but the first one is horrific too! Shades of De Jong on Alonso

Yes played them in the 3rd round of the fa Cup and a replay too. the home league game we won 1-0 had the biggest recorded attendance of any league game in the country that season..
A time when 2for 1 going through the turnstiles dropping the turnstile operator a few Bob was common place..felt like there was well over 60k in the ground that day.. Always recall the shelf absolutely heaving.. Only ever saw it like that again when we played Everton in title decider a few years later.

Seeing Ossie and Ricky's league debut at Forest.
Standing in the clock end semi final replay at Highbury v Wolves.
The noise in Arsenal station walkway after beating Woolwich 1-3.
Singing Burkenshaw, Burkenshaw, Burkenshaw after the UEFA Cup final.
I recall that day at forest like yesterday.
Being completley wet through and Falling of a wall at field Mill Mansfield when hoddle equalised in the 100th minute to make 3-3
Brighton away that same season at the old goldstone ground.
The old fella standing on top of his car in. His pyjamas at the junction of the North circ and the High Road /fore St waving a giant flag after coming back from Wembley after Ricky's final
The stand out memory will. Always be Tony parks save in the uefa cup final at the lane.. I've never seen the lane rock like that since.
Off recent times.. 'The taxi for micon' night when bale tore him a new one.
And Paul stalteris classic thunderbolt from 6inches at Upton Park in the 94th minute.. And finally Graham Roberts launching Charlie Nicholas into the crowd at Highbury.. It was like we scored 😁😁

Paul Gascoigne v Portsmouth at Fratton Park FA Cup 1987.

They were 1-0 up and Gazza was getting lots of stick from a hostile crowd. The pitch was awful and the stadium packed.

Gazza scores a soaring header to equalise before scoring a second running on to a ball and taking it past a couple of defenders.

It was the first time I’d seen Gazza in real life and not something I will ever forget.

Except the date, you forgot the date. That would of been 91.
