Bill Nicholson about the tactics for the game on 14.03.1962

(THFC programme 19.08.2000)

"We were due to play Ipswich and in our team chat before the match, I was keen that we should change tactics and have our wing halves mark their wingers instead of our full backs doing the job.

This was because they had wily Jimmy Leadbitter pulling the strings back from deep and I believed that if our full-backs could do a smothering job it would allow us to raid forward while, we hoped, Danny Blanchflower and Dave Mackay throttled them before they could set up anything. 

But there was a disagreement about playing it that way and I conceded the point, because I did not want them playing a tactical plan they were unhappy about.  They beat us home and away.  3-1 on our pitch.  If we had beaten them 3-1 at White Hart Lane would have done the Double again, it was as simple as that.  It was all a question of tactics."

The teams met in the Charity Shield at the start of the following season ...
"There was no nonsense this time.  I put my foot down and told them very firmly that we would play this one my way.  We beat them 5-1."
