Sunny Southend on Sea
30 years ago tonight

Tottenham swagered into town. Gazza, Lineker et al. Paul Stewart had a massive sulk and broke a door, Roy got sent off, somewhat harshly, and they bizarrely put the TV camera behind the South Bank goal. .

We beat them 3-2 on the night but they went through on away goals. Crowny hit the post in the last minute.

I was in the middle of the North Bank despite being on crutches having sprained my ankle going TO the pub.

This classic seems to get overlooked, but it's right up there as one of the best nights I've had at the Hall.
