30 Minutes of Highlights - Norwich/Spurs 1984

In January 1984, Norwich beat Aston Villa in the 3rd round of the FA Cup after a replay and were drawn away to Spurs in the 4th Round. After a 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane on the Saturday, the replay at Carrow Road took place on the following Wednesday. It's not like today where the replay has to wait for over a week. Tickets were pre-printed and ready for sale on the Sunday morning. Plus, of course, with standing behind both goals, you could just pay on the night.

There were some famous faces in the Spurs lineup - Ossie Ardiles, Steve Perryman, Chris Hughton, Steve Archibald. Norwich had the evergreen Mick Channon up front but not many other household names in the team.
