|1975||Spurs had to win this match to stay in the First Division. Leeds
were flying high and were far above Tottenham in the League. Home
advantage must have paid dividends as a curling free-kick from
Cyril Knowles put Spurs ahead and a Martin Chivers prod in a goalmouth
scramble added to the score. Knowles converted a penalty, before
Leeds got one back and then Alfie Conn scored Spurs' fourth. A
further consolation for Leeds came and the Spurs fans in the near 50,000
crowd whistled to indicate time, before sighing a collective sigh of
relief. It is possibly the only time that the fans were pleased to
have Terry Neill as manager, as they sang "We want Terry
Neill" until he came out onto the pitch.
