|05.01.1998||The Monday night televised game
Dominguez' pass to Stephen Clemence in the 19th minute for the
midfielder finish confidently to put Spurs into the driving seat in this
FA Cup 3rd round at WHL against new
manager Kevin Keegan's Fulham side.
A corner was cleared to Ramon Vega, who went wide to put in a low ball that Colin Calderwood deflected over the line from point blank range to make it 2-0 in the 28th minute despite the Cottagers' appeals handball. Fulham almost got a goal back in the 35th minute, when John Trollope's free-kick smacked against the woodwork, but their goal did come in the 53rd minute, as former Spur Neil Smith broke from midfield and volleyed in a cross from close range.
However, just eight minutes later, debutant Garry Brady headed a Dominguez cross against the post and it bounced in off goalkeeper Maik Taylor's head. Spurs almost added a fourth goal on a number of occasions with Klinsmann having three shots narrowly miss and substitute Paul Mahorn was denied by Taylor after a quick free-kick in the 83rd minute.
from Graham Roberts and Steve Archibald saw Spurs through to this tricky
FA Cup Fourth round replay against Fulham in this London derby.
The replay saw Tony Parks take Clemence’s place
and he had little to do as Spurs showed their superiority in winning 2-0
to reach the Fifth Round.
Parks confidently dealt with the efforts on goal that Fulham could manage, but they were out-classed in the replay. Leaving them to concentrate on getting out of the Third Division.

|07.01.1984||It was a
chilly Saturday afternoon that Spurs travelled to Craven Cottage for a
3rd round FA Cup tie with Second Division Fulham.
Fulham were missing some of their more
experienced players, so fielded a young team, who attacked Spurs as
their form of defence.
There was little to cheer until Ray Clemence had to leave the field and Graham Roberts took over in goal. He went full length to save a free-kick and
The stand-in keeper was put under pressure by Fulham in the closing stages and he dived full length to push Gale’s free-kick around the post and then threw himself at Rosenior’s feet as he bore down on goal. The Spurs defender came out of the match muddied from numerous saves he made, as Fulham tied to press home their advantage, but with a clean sheet intact and earning a replay with Fulham at white Hart Lane!!
|02.12.1981||Spurs met Third Division Fulham in
the League Cup Fourth Round and Malcolm Macdonald’s side gave Spurs a
test, but ultimately failed to go on and win the tie.
Dean Coney and Gordon Davies both missed presentable chances before a penalty shout was surprisingly turned down by the referee, but Micky Hazard’s strike was the only difference between the sides on the score-sheet at the final whistle.

Division One match with Fulham saw Spurs take a point back to North
Tottenham took the lead after 10 minutes of the game with Peter Taylor converting John Duncan's cross, after good work by Neil McNab.
Taylor had a chance to double the lead in the 33rd minute, when he dispossessed new signing Richard Money, rounded Gerry Peyton in goal and as he was poised to shoot, he lost control of the ball in the mud. Fulham came into the game more and chances for former Spur John Margerrison and John Mitchell went begging, but the home side hit back with Brian Greenaway equalising in the dying minutes at the near post, after Tony Mahoney had headed on John Evanson's cross.
A single Chris Jones goal settled this derby meeting in the Second Division, which was supposed to feature George Best in the visitors' line-up, but he was missing from the starting XI.
Fulham were denied a goal when John Mitchell converted Teddy Maybank's cross, but the referee pulled play back for a foul on Holmes by Maybank. Spurs had to wait until late in the game for Terry Naylor, Peter Taylor and John Duncan to create a shooting opportunity for Jones to break Fulham's resistance with a volley just fifteen minutes left.
their last pre-season friendly at Craven Cottage against Fulham by a
A Ralph Coates free-kick was met superbly by Martin Peters header in the 34th minute to settle the friendly. Fulham had their chances in a tightly contested game, with Pat Jennings saving well from Alan Slough and Peter Mellor stopping Phil Holder from scoring, while Ray Evans drove narrowly wide.

1967, Spurs visited Craven Cottage and found Fulham struggling and
sliding towards relegation at the end of the season.
The return Christmas fixture saw
Spurs travel to Craven Cottage looking for something more than the point
they had dropped at White Hart Lane.
The match was Frank Saul's last in Tottenham colours and with Spurs having been frustrated by bad weather preventing them playing for three weeks, it was vital to get back on track.
It was the home side's striker Les Barrett who put the Cottagers ahead following good set-up work by Allan Clarke, who allowed his fellow forward to score from a narrow angle. Spurs were back on level terms in 38 minutes, when Cliff Jones rose above Tony Macedo and Jim Conway to head home the equaliser from Dennis Bond's ball in.
from winger Cliff Jones helped Spurs to a 2-2 draw against Fulham on
this Boxing Day First Division meeting at White Hart Lane.
Former Spurs man Vic Buckingham was manager of Fulham when they visited White Hart Lane on Boxing Day 1967 and they faced a Spurs side without Jimmy Greaves' three stitches in a head wound, picked up in a clash with Ronnie Boyce three days before, ruled him out of the game and Alan Gilzean came in to replace him.
The pitch was mostly muddy, but Jimmy Robertson had the benefit of a dry run on his wing in front of the West Stand, drawing a Fulham foul and from the free-kick, Dave Mackay picked out Cliff Jones to score in the 16th minute. Robertson provided the ball into Jones to notch a second seven minutes later.
Joe Gilroy netted from a Johnny Haynes cross to make it 2-1 and shortly after the interval, Haynes created another goal, this time for Mark Pearson to score his first of the season to earn a 2-2 draw.
4-2 this match against Fulham with goals by Cliff Jones, who scored
twice, Greaves and Gilzean, with Johnny Haynes and Allan Clarke scoring
for the Cottagers, but the big talking point was the dismissal
of Terry Venables.
Venables was up against his old mate Fred Callaghan, playing for Fulham. The referee was very fussy, and when they thought they'd have a joke by pretending to have a fake fight with each other, the official sent them both off. The players appealed to him, but he stuck by his decision and manager Bill Nicholson was furious with Venables.
a three goal lead very early in the game thanks to two goals from Cliff
Jones and Frank Saul. However, half an hour into the match, it was
all square and Jones completed his hat-trick before half-time. It
was an eventful game for the Welsh winger, who also bumped into the
goalpost and broke some of his teeth in the process.
|04.09.1965||A goal in
each half from Eddie Clayton and Dave Mackay earned Tottenham a 2-0 win
at Craven Cottage.
Frank Saul set up Alan Gilzean, who could only shoot wide, then Jimmy Greaves was denied when Tony Macedo blocked his effort, who did the same again when Greaves tried to finish off a long dribble. When Fulham attacked, Rodney Marsh brought a diving save from Bill Brown to keep the ball out.
It was in the 34th minute when Tottenham took the lead, when Gilzean played the ball into the penalty area where Saul and Macedo collided and Eddie Clayton was left with the simple task of curling the ball into the net just inside the left hand post from 10 yards out. The Cottagers tried to grab an equaliser, but Brown once more saved from Marsh and then Alan Mullery blocked a shot by John Key on the goal-line.
Derek Possee had a shot that was headed off the line by Bobby Robson and it was Dave Mackay who secured the win, when he drove home from 25 yards out with 64 minutes gone.
Tottenham enjoyed a 3-0 win over Fulham in a
Monday night game at White Hart Lane.
All three goals came in the first half, with Jimmy Greaves, Frank Saul and Maurice Norman the goal-scorers.
Spurs : - Jennings, Knowles, Henry, Mullery, Norman, Marchi, Robertson, Greaves, Saul, Cliff Jones, Dyson
Fulham : - Tony Macedo, George Cohen, Jim Langley, Bobby Robson, Billy Keetch, S. Brown, Graham Leggatt, Metchick, Rodney Marsh, johnny Haynes, O'Connell

|28.03.1964||Two fine players scored in this
Easter Saturday match at Craven Cottage, with Jimmy Greaves giving
Tottenham a first half lead before Johnny Haynes struck for Fulham after
the half-time interval.
Blanchflower's last game at White Hart Lane for Spurs was marked with a
1-0 win in the First Division over Fulham courtesy of a Jimmy Greaves
goal. Danny retired
a week later.
A comical goal gave Spurs a point and left Fulham
goalkeeper Tony Macedo red-faced, as his error deprived Fulham of a
First Division win
at White Hart Lane.
The visitors lead with a goal from Graham Leggat in this Easter Saturday meeting, but in the 74th minute, Macedo tauntingly offered the ball to Greaves in his extended hand, but the ball slipped from his grasp and dropped at Greavsie's feet. He made no mistake from close range and secured a draw with the embarrassing 74th minute goal for the Cottagers' goalie.
Tottenham travelled to Craven Cottage and returned
home with a 2-0 win.
Despite the first half ending without any scoring, Bill Brown had been called on to make some good saves. Soon after the second half started, Jimmy Greaves saw a header come back off the crossbar.
The home side were reduced to ten men on 70 minutes, when Alan Mullery left the field with a shoulder injury, but Spurs could not break through the Fulham defence until seven minutes from time, with Cliff Jones scoring. Within a minute, Dave Mackay had made it 2-0.
Tottenham hosted Fulham
in this Armistice Day meeting, with John White playing a key role in the
The little Scotsman headed Tottenham into the lead and then netted a second goal direct from a corner. However, the Cottagers fought back with goals from Graham Leggatt and Johnny Haynes to level the scores, but it was a Cliff Jones header from a corner just before half-time that saw the teams turn around with Spurs ahead.
Into the second half, White was involved again, when he put a far post cross onto Dave Mackay's head. The Spurs midfielder rose above England full back George Cohen and powered his header past Tony Macedo to 4-2 Tottenham victory despite Fulham's Alan Mullery twice hitting the woodwork.
nine matches to play, Spurs were stuttering in their charge for the
title. They made hard work of this match at Craven Cottage in
front of 38,536, but it was a closely fought match - the highlight being
a Cook shot that knocked the helmet off a policeman. The point
from this draw meant Spurs had gained only six points from their last
seven games and Sheffield Wednesday were now close behind in second
Spurs rampaged through
the Fulham defence to record a big win at the Lane
as they won their 15th out of 16 matches.
Cliff Jones and Les Allen both scored two goals and John White added another to see Spurs through to a 5-1 win.
Both clubs sat in the top five of the First
Division when they met at Craven Cottage.
Fulham had recently been promoted and were missing Maurice Cook, while Spurs had the nucleus of the side that would go on to such great success the following season. Spurs took the lead from the penalty spot, when Derek Lampe had been guilty of a foul and Cliff Jones put the fifth minute spot-kick away.
Johnny Haynes picked out a fine pass to put Jimmy Hill through to equalise after a quarter of an hour and with Fulham forcing the game, a Hill shot deflected off Dave Mackay's head, leaving Bill Brown grasping for the ball, but a hand diverted the shot over the bar, with many believing it was full-back Peter Baker who had done so. The referee and linesmen must have been poorly positioned, as only a corner was awarded.
after the first meeting of the season, the two teams faced each other at
Craven Cottage, where 33,920 watched saw Rob Thomas give Fulham the
lead. However, Spurs denied the home side their first points of
the season with goals by Les Bennett and Syd McClellan.
of 48,766 crowd, Les Medley scored the only goal of the match to
give Tottenham their first win of the season.
Fulham's first win at White Hart Lane came in a Division Two match thanks to goals from Doug McGibbon and Ernie Shepherd.
A goal-less first half
saw the crowd treated to a Charlie Whitchurch goal to put Tottenham
ahead, but the home side pegged Spurs back to 1-1 in the closing stages
with a goal from Rooke.
Spurs were without first
choice keeper Percy Hooper and Willie Hall, but John Hall stepped in
between the posts, although he was beaten by Taffy O'Callaghan's penalty to see
off his old side. Spurs created a number of chances, but failed to
take them and lost by the single goal.
A 1-0 win gave Spurs a home win with a single
strike from Colin Lyman.
The sides were in the Second Division and a 1-1 draw saw Johnny Morrison score for Tottenham and Ronnie Rooke grab Fulham's goal. Spurs' former player Taffy O'Callaghan played for the Cottagers.
This Second Division
meeting saw two of the contenders for the title clash and play out an
entertaining draw in front of a big crowd.
Two goals for the home side from Bill Richards and Bonzo Newton put them in the driving seat with just 25 minutes gone and Newton's penalty knocked Spurs keeper Joe Nicholls flat, but it prevented the Cottagers going further ahead.
Tottenham hit back in the second half with two goals from George Hunt, although the fight-back was soured by an injury to George Greenfield which eventually ended his career.
followed up their win at Craven Cottage the previous week with another
big win to win points that added up to the Second Division title at the
end of the season.
The 4-0 victory came courtesy of goals from Fanny Walden, Billy Minter 2 and Bert Bliss.
The two teams met in the FA Cup in Tottenham's first League season, while Fulham were in their second League campaign. Spurs repaired to Southend to prepare for the match, with Fulham visiting Clacton and returned to play in front of a 33,008 crowd, who paid £1,885 to see this Second Round FA Cup tie.
The game was decided by Bobby Steel's goal, with both teams watching match highlights in a West London cinema later that evening.
Spurs won this derby 5-1 thanks to goals from James Reid (2), Joe Walton, Charles Hewitt and William Dow.
