          Notable Dates

1939 The last match played by Tottenham before the announcement of World War II and the abandonment of the season.
1977 Frederic Kanoute, forward 2003-2005, born.
1978 Tottenham's record League defeat.  Some controversy surrounds this record, as the 0-8 InterToto Cup defeat at the hands of Cologne (Germany) is regarded by some as the biggest loss.  However, the first team were playing a pre-season friendly in Denmark that day, so it was not classed as a first class match.  Therefore, the hammering at Anfield on this day in 1978 stands as the largest defeat suffered by the club.
The score is also the biggest winning margin in matches between the sides.
1992 Tottenham's first win in the Premier League was secured with goals from Sheringham (his first for Spurs) and Durie.
