1981 After being robbed in the initial game, Spurs were virtually at home in the replay as it was staged at nearby Highbury.  An early goal by Crooks did little to settle the nerves as Wolves poured forward for the equaliser, hitting the bar in the process.  The crucial moment came just before half-time, when Garth Crooks ran onto a Glenn Hoddle through-ball and out-paced the Wolves defence to score after running half the length of the pitch.  The match was sealed by a rasping Ricky Villa drive from 20 yards, which swerved and bamboozled keeper Bradshaw.  Spurs fans evidently enjoyed the occasion as they sang "We kind of like it here" from the North Bank, the traditional end for the fans of the home team.
1985 David Leworthy makes his debut in attack.
1989 First away win over Wimbledon in the League.

The match was won by Chris Waddle's last goal for the club.

2007 Tottenham's 150th Premier League draw.
2012 Spurs crash to their biggest FA Cup semi-final defeat in a game marred by a controversial decision to award a second goal to Chelsea, which did not cross the line.
2017 Harry Kane scores in the win over Bournemouth and becomes only the fourth player in Premier League history to score 20+ goals in three consecutive seasons.

Spurs record their twelfth consecutive Premier League home win, setting a new club record in that competition.

It was also the club's seventh Premier League win in a row, also a record for Tottenham.

Tottenham's biggest home win over Bournemouth and equals their biggest winning margin over the Cherries.
