    Just before my time so didn't register with me...I got in just in time for the ignimony of losing to Bradford in 1989 instead though!

    Always felt as though we were doing our very best to get knocked out of the Europa that season! I think, we could still have qualified on final match day having won at Shamrock but PAOK obviously got something against Rubin Kazan to secure their place.

    Of course...how did I forget the Portsmouth Semi-Final. It was a humiliating loss though I equally feel a little cheated that a) the pitch surface was an utter brick bomb which clearly acted as a leveller and b) Crouch had a perfectly good goal disallowed at 0-1 so I dont feel this one was entirely self-inflicted.

    You were a couple of years older than me. I'm pretty sure my story is just as bizarre as I was in the worst place in the world to receive the news of the half time score.....I was in the Arsenal away end for their league cup tie the same night at Boundary Park, Oldham! I remember my heart sinking at some Goon shouting as loud as he could "Tottenham are losing" and getting a cheer and then at half time the Oldham PA announcer trying to woo the Arsenal fans by bigging up the fact we were 2-0 down at half time and that Dumitrescu had been sent off.

    Don't think I'd have been able to contain myself if Rick Holden's wing masterplay that night had resulted in an Oldham goal!

    If that is the lasagna gate one, it gets my vote too.

    Does any other club have as many humiliations I wonder? Or are we just a cursed club?

    The Newcastle one I put a ton on them to win at 6-1 as a happy hedge, yesterday I put money on Zagreb to qualify at 27s on betfair but admittedly I did break the rule of happiness hedges and bottled it and cashed out 200 near the end.

    The Liverpool at home hammering under AVB was a particularly bad one, other than Bayern one of the few games I think I’ve actually left before the final whistle.

    I went for the City one though, I’m sure the odds on that feat would have been ridiculous. It wasn’t even like they were a top side then.

    At least that was not our fault. We were done.

    Last line from the commentator sums up the whole thread.

    I remember the Arsenal vs Spurs game in Redknapp's era. I believe we were leading then I can't recall correctly if anyone got a red card. However I remember us losing and the shame.

    There has been quite a few which in my mind are balanced with great moments. However I deal with it by saying that is football unless I notice the players attitude during the game e.g. Newcastle away, United at home after making a lot of noise, the City and Liverpool consistent high scoring bearings etc

    This thread is dark reviving painful memories. Damn

    Jesus, Austin was my favourite player back then. Thought he was a fantastic prospect up to the leg break in 1994. I wrote to him as a kid and he responded multiple times with signed photos and stuff, top bloke.

    But in that game, like many looking back, he made Matt Doherty look like Cafu.

    Arsenal winning the League at White Hart Lane, for the second time (2004). Watching Henry run to their fans wasn't as painful as Madrid (I cried my eyes out two days later, true footballing heart break), but it is hard to take still to this day. The only way I'd get over that is if we won the league at their place or beat them in a UCL Semi-Final at their place before winning it.

    For me it's that. You can have all the games against minnows that ended in defeat, the big leads thrown away (5-3, 4-3, 3-3) and the absolute spankings (5-0, 6-1, 7-2, 7-1) dished out in the past but it's nothing in comparison to your arch rivals winning the League at your place. That's why Lasagne Gate when Arsenal pipped us to fourth after defeat to West Ham in 2006 and Munich when Chelsea won the Champions League (first and still only London club to do so) before qualifying for the competition is up there.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned it... ;)

    1. Arsenal winning the league at our place 1971 and 2004
    2. Munich (the whole World laughed at us for that)
    3. Lasagne Gate (we actually shat our pants and was the first footballing meme).

    Writing and editing this post has been like therapy, after all these years I know why I react to certain defeats the way I do.

    I guess the biggest problem for us Tottenham fans is trying to compensate, let alone over compensate, for all the dissapointments these past 30 years (26 years for me).

    That arsenal game where we gave them a really soft goal after starting well, then somehow conspired to cough the ball up from the restart and let Fabregas straight through the team to score again within about 10 seconds. I think it was only 3-0 in the end but it was awful.

    The 4-3 loss to Emirates Marketing Project in the FA cup says hi.
