      I'm glad to say I do not remember all of them! Wish I could claim a great memory for most, but I pulled these off of a web site that has just about every stat you could ever want for the Spurs. The home page for the site is:
      http://www.topspurs.com/
      I went to the link that is listed as "Topspurs THFC Record by Club" - and then selected "Arsenal" or go directly to:
      http://www.topspurs.com/thfc-arsenal.htm
      as you can see, it's a great site for looking up old stuff about the spurs.
      The web master (Jim Duggan) has done a great job of pulling a huge amount of information together - all kudos to him!
      Hope this helps Mike!

      • It certainly does old fan, much appreciated!!

        I think it must have been the game played on May 11th 1993. I was there, but ashamably I can only remember certain aspect's of the game ( like the score & the fact that a nice buxom young lady stripped off and run towards us, hotly persued by several Arsenal stewards & the Old Bill ) but could not recall who actually scored for us or on what the actual date of the fixture.

        I guess the years are finally beginning to catch up on me!!
