Hi all, This is my eighth article on great matches I’ve been to. This one is on our great victory over Anderlecht when we beat them (2-2 on aggregate 4-3 to Spurs on penalties) to win UEFA Cup final.
It was a great emotional game where we saw our goalkeeper Tony Parks become the hero of the night. The crowds went mad, the players went into overdrive and bounced on our hero Glenn. Thanks

It was a night to remember. The match was played on the 23 May 1984 (the first leg was on the 9 May). Anderlecht – from Belgium – where the defending champions. After two home and away draws the match went into extra time and then a penalty shootout. In the process making Tony Parks the hero on the night.
“It’s a night for strong nerves,” said Bryan Moore (commentator on ITV) as kick-off approached in the second leg of the 1984 UEFA Cup final. The tie was provocatively balanced as we had secured a 1-1 draw in the away leg in Brussels.
Over 46,000 fans were crammed into our ground to witness history in the making (I was one of them). We were all willing our team on. That night we claimed our third European Trophy (and sadly our last… well, from this date, but hopefully the future is going to be a lot brighter with Mourinho in charge).
