By all accounts, the current Tottenham team looks to be one of the best in the club's history. Yet, for all their hype, they remain trophyless (for now). Now the
Here are six of Tottenham's greatest FA Cup moments:
Paul Gascoigne's Spectacular Free-Kick Against Arsenal (1991)
Where else to start other than with one of the club's most iconic players scoring one of the club's most iconic goals.
In 1991, Tottenham and Arsenal went to Wembley to meet in the competition's semi-final. Not only was a place in the FA Cup final up for grabs, it was also a north London derby - making it a game of pride as much as anything.
The Club's First Ever Piece of Competitive Silverware (1901)
Just to give you an idea of how old both club and competition are, let's take a trip way back over a century ago to the team's first ever FA Cup trophy success.
A Last Minute Own Goal to Win The Final (1991)
It seems that Gazza's free-kick in the semi-final was so powerful it not only knocked Arsenal out of the competition but also blasted Spurs onto victory in the ensuing final.
In May of '91 the Lillywhites met Nottingham Forest at Wembley as they looked to claim the prize for the eighth time in their history. Spurs initially trailed to a Stuart Pearce goal but managed to draw things level through Paul Stewart.
Then, deep into stoppage time, when it looked like the game would end level, a dramatic own goal from Des Walker gave Tottenham at 94th minute winner.
David Ginola's Wonder Goal (1999)
Few foreign players have come to Tottenham and made such a lasting impact as David Ginola. And in the FA Cup quarter final of 1999 the Frenchman cemented his legendary status at the club.
Playing against Barnsley for a place in the semi-final, the winger picked up the ball wide out on the left flank from about
Ronnie Rosenthal's Comeback Hat-trick (1995)
Ricky Villa's 1981 FA Cup Final Winner
The 1981 encounter between Tottenham and Manchester City also happened to be the 100th FA Cup final to be played. After the first game ended level, the replay produced a match worthy of the occasion.
Tottenham took the lead through Ricky Villa, before a volley from Steve MacKenzie levelled things for City. Spurs then trailed after conceding a penalty only for Garth Crooks to equalise with 20 minutes remaining.
With things even, Villa once more stepped forward in an attempt to win the final. In mesmerising fashion the Argentine dribbled his way back and forth through the City defence before squeezing the ball past Joe Corrigan as the City goalkeeper came out to make the save.
It is undoubtedly remembered as one of the competition's finest ever cup final winning goals.
