17.01.1998 With Spurs perilously close to the bottom of the table, we needed the points from this derby at the Lane.  With seven minutes on the clock, Wilson stopped the ball from going out and fed Ginola, who crossed for Jurgen Klinsmann to put Spurs one up.

Sinton made Craig Forrest dive to save a snapshot and Ginola curled a shot just wide of the target.  Old boy John Moncur called Espen Baardsen into action to keep the Irons out and the Norwegian keeper also denied Lampard from a free-kick and Lazaridis with an athletic one handed save.  Just before half-time, Samassi Abou had a touch-line flare up where he aimed a kick at Ramon Vega and was dismissed by the referee.

In the second half, Spurs pressed into the West Ham half and Ginola, Howells, Fox and Berti all had shots that narrowly failed to give Tottenham an extension to their lead and Campbell headed against the post.  Other chances flew by with Sinton missing with three shots and a header and it was nearly costly, as Baardsen made two saves at the end from Unsworth and Lampard to maintain a clean sheet and give Spurs three precious points.

13.08.1997 Losing a fourth minute goal from John Hartson and then the injured Sol Campbell early in this Premier League match unbalanced Spurs.  Walker was beaten when Hartson hit a shot from Stan Lazaridis' cross, but was then on hand to save from both Hartson and Paul Kitson.

Spurs rallied at the end of the first half with Nielsen pulling a one handed save out of Ludek Miklosko.  After the break, Les Ferdinand went close, as did Hartson, but it was Eyal Berkovic who added to West Ham's lead with a run through and shot.  Ferdinand reduced the arrears in the 83rd minute with his first Spurs goal - steering in Sinton's low cross and a point was the least Spurs deserved for piling on the pressure, when Vega was foiled by another very good save.  However, as Spurs threw everything forward, they had to rely on the crossbar to keep out Frank Lampard's shot in the last minute.

24.02.1997 Teddy Sheringham gave Tottenham a seventh minute lead in this London derby, but Julian Dicks and Paul Kitson then scored to give the Hammers a 2-1 lead.  Darren Anderton hit a goal to bring Spurs level, but this did not last long, with Paul Hartson restoring the home advantage.  A long range pile-driver from David Howells once more put the teams level, but then our midfielder fouled Hartson in the area to allow the Irons to take a decisive 4-3 lead with Dicks scoring from the spot.

29.10.1994 Ossie Ardiles' last match in charge of Spurs ended with a win, but came too late to save his tenure as manager.

18 minutes in and Klinsmann scored a cracking goal, but Matthew Rush got free on the right to equalise for the Irons three minutes before the break.  It was left to substitute Teddy Sheringham to restore the lead with Nick Barmby netting a 63rd minute third goal to give Spurs a much needed win.

26.10.1991 Spurs crashed to West Ham with Gordon Durie dismissed to add to the club's miseries.

A fifth minute lead was handed to Spurs, when Gary Lineker breached the Irons' defence.  However, Mike Small drew West Ham level on 12 minutes and then former Spur Mitchell Thomas struck the winner for the home side just before the half hour.

Tottenham were reduced to ten men when Durie was red-cared for a foul and the score-line remained unchanged despite both teams creating opportunities.

17.12.1988 Two irregular scorers gave Tottenham a much needed win at Upton Park in this First Division encounter.

In the 23rd minute, Gary Mabbutt broke up a West Ham attack and passing the ball through Paul Walsh and Chris Waddle, surged forward to end the move with a crashing volley past McKnight in the Irons goal.

Spurs lost the influential presence of Paul Gascoigne at the break and it was left to Walsh to set up Mitchell Thomas for a long range shot that flew in on 68 minutes to give Spurs a cushion.  West Ham pushed to get back in the match, but Mimms was inspired in keeping the home side at bay to earn Tottenham the points.

28.12.1987 An 11.30 a.m. kick off saw Tottenham jump over West Ham after they had won this post-Christmas derby match.

A rocket of a free-kick from Chris Waddle gave Spurs the lead, while defender Chris Fairclough headed a second to give Spurs some breathing room in the frantic action.  Paul Hilton managed a consolation for the Irons late on.

The Fifth round League Cup replay at White Hart Lane burst into life with a torrent of goals.  The visitors had a couple of good chances to get off the mark through Billy Bonds (who was starting for the first time in two years), before Ardiles played in Nico Claesen to swing the ball past Phil Parkes.  Glenn Hoddle added a 71st minute goal and  then Paul Allen, playing against his old club created a couple of goals for cousin Clive, who then went on to complete a nine minute hat-trick with a penalty.

27.01.1987

Postponed from six days before, because of the cold weather, this Fifth round League Cup tie saw early goal line clearances from efforts by Glenn Hoddle and Clive Allen, before Allen scored in the 38th minute after the ball passed through Ardiles and Paul Allen to set him up.  Gough had averted an equaliser by clearing off the line from McAvennie, although it was shortly followed by Cottee's goal, forcing home Dickens' 48th minute blocked shot.
Chances at both end continued to arrive, but the tie ended drawn and a replay was required.

20.11.1982 Second place West Ham came to White Hart Lane and were left suffering a loss inflicted by a Steve Archibald double.

The Irons had actually taken the lead in the first half, when Belgian Francois van der Elst broke away to slot home.  Ten minutes after the interval, Archibald capitalised on a mistake by former Spur Jimmy Neighbour to level the scores, then Chris Hughton smashed a shot past Phil Parkes, but it bounced out off the post.  It was left for goal poacher Archibald to win the game for tenth place Tottenham with a late strike.

02.12.1980 Second Division West Ham won this encounter in the Fifth Round of the League Cup with a single goal from David Cross, netting an 81st minute header.   Spurs appeared to have escaped a penalty shout when Chris Hughton was alleged to have handled in the area, but Cross' header high into the net beat Steve Perryman on the goal-line.  The Tottenham run had seen them play all their games in London.

Spurs had been rocked by a third minute goal from Trevor Brooking, which West Ham held onto until half-time.  Into the second half, Spurs started to take the initiative and Keith Osgood's penalty in the 51st minute and John Duncan's strike on the hour proved enough for Spurs to seal the win.

06.11.1976 Spurs crashed to a defeat at Upton Park in an eight goal London Derby.

A fine save by Mervyn Day in the Irons goal kept Spurs out in the 14th minute, but Bryan Robson and Billy Bonds scored to give the home side a 2-0 lead.  A John Duncan header brought Spurs back into the game on 40 minutes, but goals from Trevor Brooking (54 mins), Billy Jennings and Alan Curbishley put Tottenham 1-5 behind.  Tottenham were not giving up and Glenn Hoddle scored to kick start a comeback, with Keith Osgood converting from the penalty spot (his fourth successful spot-kick of the season) to make it 3-5.

Spurs were hoping to make it even closer, but despite a valiant finish, the West Ham defence managed to prevent any further goals.

24.11.1975 The League Cup Fourth round replay had an unscheduled stop, when the floodlights failed after about 25 minutes and were not switched on again for another period of the same time.  When they did, they shed light on a disappointing game, where neither side could score in the regulation 90 minutes, so the tie went into extra time.

A fine strike by John Duncan gave Spurs a 101st minute lead and then the tie was wrapped up by Willie Young on 108 minutes, with a header from Jimmy Neighbour's corner.

12.11.1975 Stalemate in this fourth round League Cup tie as First Division leaders West Ham faced a fierce opening to the game with Duncan hitting a shot narrowly wide.  The Irons came back into matters with a near own goal by an Osgood header.
In the second half, the visitors again faced an onslaught, but efforts from Coates, Jones, Duncan and an Osgood free-kick all failed to hit the target, leaving West Ham with a late chance to win it, but Brooking could not find the goal from 12 yards out.

17.10.1970 A new home attendance record for West Ham United at 42,322 saw this thrilling 2-2 draw.

Tottenham went ahead with an early Alan Mullery goal after just six minutes, but they were hauled back to 1-1 by Peter Eustace's 23rd minute header from Bobby Moore's free-kick.

Spurs regained the lead before the break when Mike England scored in the 37th minute, but once again the scores were levelled when Geoff Hurst hit a 51st minute goal to make it 2-2.

Alan Mullery told the Daily Mirror that he thought "both the West Ham goals were sloppy ones."

15.08.1970 An exciting First Division match saw the spoils shared in front of a huge crowd.

A Peters header crashed back off the bar before Jimmy Pearce set Gilzean through to score, but soon after Gilly's former strike partner Jimmy Greaves scored a stunning goal.  However, Alan Gilzean put Tottenham ahead again when Bond's corner was headed back across goal by Mike England and Gilzean nodded home.

Early in the second period, Perryman broke through to hit a shot that bounced away off Grotier's knee and soon after, Peter Bennett headed the Irons' equaliser to grab a point from the match.

12.11.1966 A pulsating derby ended with West Ham registering a 4-3 win at the Lane in the First Division.

An early Johnny Byrne goal put the Irons ahead, but Jimmy Greaves equalised with a penalty.  Before half-time, Peter Brabrook and Johnny Sissons stretched the advantage, with Terry Venables clipping the lead to 3-2 by the half-time break.  Spurs had the opportunities to win this game, but Greaves fired another penalty over the bar and it was left to Alan Gilzean to grab an equaliser.  However, with ten minutes remaining, Geoff Hurst scored the winner for the visitors.

It only took a minute for Mullery to set up the equaliser, as his long range drive was deflected in off Greaves' knee.  With the pendulum swinging in Tottenham's favour, it was left to Terry Dyson to turn and strike a left foot goal past the Hammers keeper to earn Spurs the win in a game affected by torrential rain.

22.12.1962 An eight goal thriller entertained this pre-Christmas crowd at White Hart Lane.

This Sixth Round replay saw the doors locked at Upton Park as the crowd watched Tottenham move into the semi-final with a 2-1 win with a 3.00 p.m. kick off on a Thursday afternoon. 

Tommy Harmer and Duquemin were both again on the score-sheet for Spurs, who eased through, despite the newspapers claiming that West Ham had five penalty appeals turned down !!  Harmer's goal came just before half-time, when he knocked in Mel Hopkins' cross.  The home team equalised when Billy Dare Headed in Frank O'Farrell's centre with 65 minutes gone, but five minutes later, Tottenham booked a semi-final place with a Len Duquemin shot into the left hand corner of the goal.

When John Dick scored a hat-trick inside fourteen minutes, it looked as though West Ham were sailing through to the semi-final of the FA Cup.  But Spurs had other ideas.

With three strikes between the 21st and the 35th minutes, the Irons' 3-1 lead looked very impressive.   Dick opened the scoring in the 21st minute and headed a second two minutes later.  Spurs got back into the game when Harry Clarke hit the post, Bobby Smith fired the rebound goalwards and John bond caught the ball on the line.  Tommy Harmer's 32nd minute penalty had reduced the arrears and then, two minutes after Dick's hat trick goal, George Robb scored again to make it 2-3 at the break when he headed Johnny Brooks' corner into the net.

Spurs pressed forward to gain an equaliser and succeeded in their quest when Len Duquemin powered home a third goal in the 74th minute to level the scores and take the Sixth Round tie into a replay at Upton Park.
