In 1984 Tottenham played Anderlecht in the 1984 UEFA Cup final. They drew 2-2 on aggregate, with Spurs winning the penalty shoot out 4-3.
Graham Roberts opened the scoring for Spurs but Alexandre Czerniatynski equalised, taking the match to penalties.
Anderlecht – who had a young Enzo Scifo leading the line – missed two, but Spurs held their nerve.
Graham Roberts, Spurs defender, thought the atmosphere was off
There was an atmosphere because a Spurs fan was shot dead in a bar below our hotel on the eve of the first leg.
Erwin Vandenbergh, the Anderlect goal machine, had unorthodox training equipment
Tottenham would not let us train at their stadium and gave us a pitch with long grass and no goals. We used vests for goalposts.
Paul Van Himst, Anderlect manager ate a cigarette
I was not a smoker but asked my assistant for a cigarette because of the stress. I started eating it.
That was the last time that Spurs won a trophy in Europe and the last time an opposing manager ate a cigarette. Looking for a gift for a Spurs fan. Check out our marketplace for some banging kits.
