08.03.1986 Going two goals up in ten minutes of this First Division encounter, Spurs were well set for victory.

Three minutes into the match, Gary Mabbutt finished off a Graham Roberts long-throw that was flicked on by Chris Waddle and knocked against the post by Mark Falco.  Falco was also on hand for the second, getting to Danny Thomas' cross, but there has always been some dispute as to whether he or WBA defender Derek Statham got the last touch to make it 2-0.  Spurs were 4-0 up by the break, with Tony Galvin adding a third and Falco getting his second of the game.

The second half was a more sedate affair in comparison and Imre Varadi missed Albion's best chance before Waddle finished off the scoring with a fifth goal.

03.11.1984 A five goal thriller saw WBA leave the Lane with the points in this Division One meeting.

John Chiedozie and Micky Hazard were the Spurs scorers, but that was not enough to prevent the Baggies taking the win thanks to goals from Nicky Cross, Steve Mackenzie and a Derek Statham penalty.

The Guardian's reported Steve MacKenzie's third goal for Albion as "an imperious chip shot over Ray Clemence worthy of Rummenigge at his best".

Defender Clive Whitehead popped up in the Spurs penalty area in the 55th minute to put the visitors into the lead, but this was soon wiped out when Garth Crooks equalised.  Whitehead had to leave the field after being involved in a crunching tackle with Graham Roberts.

West Bromwich Albion skipper John Wile broke his left leg in this First Division match at the Hawthorns that the home side went on to a 4-2 win over Spurs.

Tottenham had gone into the half-time break 2-0 ahead with Chris Jones and debutant Peter Taylor finding the net, but in the second half Albion raised their game to hit Spurs for four second half goals. The first came from a penalty scored by Tony Brown, before Mick Martin's goal made it 2-2.

When Ray Treacy forced the ball over the line to put the Baggies into the lead, it was only left for Martin to round off the win with his second of the game.

20.11.1971 Tottenham's passing was not up to it's usual standard as they struggled to beat West Bromwich Albion in the First Division at White Hart Lane.

Mike England scored his first goal of the season with a snap-shot as the ball dropped in the box, just before half-time, but Bobby Gould equalised for Albion in the second half. Shortly afterwards, Alan Gilzean got on the end of Ralph Coates' cross with a left foot shot to restore the lead at the Park Lane end and then
a couple of minutes later, his floated header over the bar when keeper John Osborne who was off his line.  Thankfully, the Scottish striker did get his head on Ray Evans' cross to make it 3-1 soon after.

Just when it looked as though Spurs were safe, Tony Brown nipped in to score a second for the visitors, but Spurs, with Barry Daines deputising for Pat Jennings in goal, held out for a much needed win.

17.02.1971 Tottenham drew 2-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion with an Alan Mullery penalty and a goal from Alan Gilzean earning a share of the points.

Albion had taken the lead through Tony Brown, but the lead was pegged back when Alan Mullery scored from the penalty spot to make it 1-1. The Spurs skipper could have put Tottenham ahead, when the second penalty award of the game was given to Spurs, but Mullery missed the target to leave Albion to approach the second half with some hope.

Brown doubled his and Albion's score in the second half, but only a late Gilzean header denied the travelling Baggies a win at the Lane.
