Despite what turns out to be quite a momentous result from White Hart Lane, Spurs 1-2 Liverpool merits only the most cursory mention in my diary. It was one of those old time Liverpool displays. Feeble in the first half and deservedly one down, they powered back in the second half with goals from Jan Molby and Ian Rush. The pitch was bone hard due to the frost, and most of the players wore flat soled boots. The game turned out to be Steve Perryman’s final appearance for Spurs, the last of his club record 854 first team appearances.
I collected just over a hundred pounds on my paper round, so I was happy enough about that. The weather was sunny – whoo hoo, we must have been emerging fro the coldest winter for a while – it felt like it anyway. Again, we played football and I did some French homework. Not a single mention of the word boring. Now there’s a turn up.
