18.04.1998 Spurs were denied all the points in this match at Oakwell, where Neil Redfearn gave Barnsley the lead after Nicola Berti had hit the bar.  Redfearn's powerful drive beat Walker after he had been set up by Martin Bullock.  Klinsmann hit a shot too high and Ferdinand was denied by the Barnsley keeper, but Barnsley had a chance to go further ahead when Tinkler had a free header but deposited it into the side netting.

Les Ferdinand's header was blocked on the line, but Allan Nielsen's shot found Colin Calderwood, who steered the ball in.  The point looked precarious when Ramon Vega was sent off in the 65th minute for fouling Ashley Ward, but the remaining ten players held out and made chances to win the match, with David Watson stopping Ginola's effort at the death when clean through.

20.12.1997 Spurs eased to a 3-0 home win in the Premier League with a sparkling opening 17 minute three-goal salvo.

Anderton's pass put in Allan Nielsen, whose shot hit the net in the fifth minute, then Nielsen turned provider to give Ginola the opportunity to drill home a shot from the edge of the area after 12 minutes.  Five minutes later, the Frenchman headed in from Fox's cross and Tottenham continued to be on top with two penalty appeals turned down and Nielsen, Ginola, Fox and Sinton all had good openings, but failed to add to the total.  Nielsen also hit the post with a 79th minute effort.

08.10.1986 The return leg saw Spurs ease through in a high scoring match at White Hart Lane.

Debutant Shaun Close hit Spurs into the lead and Glenn Hoddle extended the aggregate advantage after 30 minutes of the match.  Defender John Beresford scored with a header to narrow the margin, but Tottenham were out of reach following goals from Hoddle and Waddle.  

Once more the visitors pulled a goal back with Larry May scoring in the 67th minute, but Clive Allen notched another to open up the four goal gap once more.  A late Ian Chandler goal for Barnsley was nothing more than a consolation, but it sealed a very entertaining match.

07.06.1947 The bad weather the previous winter and the government's restriction on midweek football in the first season after the war meant that this game took place in June - the only time this has happened.

So Spurs faced Barnsley at home at the end of a long season not helped by an Arctic winter.

The original game had been scheduled for 15th February, but it was called off because of heavy snow and ice, so re-arranged for 24th May, the game was then put back for another two weeks.
