Spurs were put on the back foot for the first half hour.  An early goal by Don Ford from a penalty gave Hearts a well-deserved lead, but Spurs came back in the second half to produce a better performance.  A number of chances were made as Spurs pressed forward, but none were taken until John Pratt struck a few minutes from the end of the match.

Alfie Conn made his debut for Tottenham at Hearts, exactly four years after he played against Spurs at WHL in 1970 for Glasgow Rangers.

03.12.1973 Phil Beal's testimonial against Bayern Munich ended 2-2 in front of a meagre crowd for such a loyal servant to the club.

An early lead was handed to Spurs by Alan Gilzean when he stroked the ball home from close range and then Ray Evans' cross was glanced home by the head of John Pratt to put Tottenham 2-0 up against the crack German side.

However, just before half-time, Zobel put a shot wide of Pat Jennings to the keeper's right to bring Bayern back into the game and late on in the second period, Roth fired home an equaliser.

The game was played at half-pace for much of the time, but an injury to Martin Peters after 22 minutes was not what the team wanted.

17.10.1972 Spurs played a testimonial against Feyenoord for Jimmy Greaves, which Tottenham won 2-1.

Jimmy Greaves returned to the Lilywhite shirt for one last time in the “Goodbye Greaves” match to give the former striker a resounding farewell.  Despite having retired 18 months before, there were still glimpses of the old forward there and it took only three minutes for him to get on the score-sheet, with a goal slipped into the Dutch team's net in typical Greaves style.

Feyenoord levelled the score when Peter Ressel with 24 minutes gone, but Ray Evans restored Tottenham's lead when Martin Chivers played him in to hit an angled drive into the net with 31 minutes on the clock.

Barry Daines was drafted in at the last minute and played well to keep Feyenoord out to ensure Spurs ended victors for their hero of the night.

Spurs applied pressure from the start and Bobby Watson made good saves from Chivers and Gilzean, but it was the Scots striker who nearly broke the deadlock with a header finishing off Roger Morgan's cross.  But it was ruled offside, although a minute later, Spurs replayed the move and this one counted.

Roger Morgan scored a rare headed goal before half-time to wrap up the scoring and the match.

31.07.1968 Tottenham beat David White's Glasgow Rangers side to London at White Hart Lane in a pre-season friendly.

The Light Blues played a 4-3-3 formation, which had been successful in previous tour games in Scandinavia, but striker Colin Jackson replaced Kai Johansen at right back and had an impressive match.  However, Spurs went two goals up within ten minutes, with both goals coming in the same manner -  a corner taken by Jimmy Greaves and headed in by Peter Collins. The third Spurs goal was scored by Alan Mullery.  Andy Penman was Rangers' best player and he scored their only goal and was prevented from further reducing the lead by the heroics of Pat Jennings in goal.

15.08.1966 The final of the Costa del Sol tournament saw Spurs meet Benfica in Malaga and end in retaining the trophy sometime into the next day after the game kicked off at 11.15 p.m. 

Tottenham took the lead in the 15th minute through Jimmy Greaves when Gilzean provided the chance for the striker to round a defender and crash his shot past Costa Pereira in goal.

A foul on Simoes by Joe Kinnear resulted in a penalty against Spurs and Eusebio tucked it away to draw the Portuguese side level soon after.  It was left to winger Jimmy Robertson to net the winner with 25 minutes remaining to see Spurs win the competition.  The Scottish winger raced away from three defenders and slipped the ball through the keeper's legs to net the vital winning goal.

With ten minutes remaining, Mullery lobbed the ball over the home defence for Alan Gilzean to score the clincher for Spurs.
