Spurs 2 Forest 1 (aet) - well done Spurs :-(

Hi everyone - congratulations to Spurs on winning the 1991 English FA Cup
final, they played well, they were the best side, and in Linekar and
Stewart they had 2 excellent match winners. Pity Gazza had to resort to
McMahon type thuggery to make his mark - he's got far too much talent to
need to do this, but if he's not careful he will not be remembered for
his talent. I personally thought he should have been sent off.

The Forest youngsters froze, were a yard slower to the ball, and wanted
to win less than Spurs, so no complaints. I'm only sorry that Roy Keane
didn't perform, after all the advance publicity I'd given you all.

Never mind there will always be next year (or in 32 years time :-), I was
proud to be there, and also proud to see the teams reception in the
Market Square Nottingham, on Sunday afternoon. Spurs may get wound-up this
week, so we could still get into Europe, unlikely admittedly.

Thanks for all your messages of support, and again well done Spurs for
winning the cup for record 8th time.

Cheers - Ian

The ref said he was going to book Gazza for the tackle, and had got
his book out of pocket, but then the Spurs coach said "he's finished"
and knowing that the injury was very serious put his book away.

How thoughtful of him. If he'd booked Gazza for the "studs-in-chest" tackle
earlier, it might have calmed him down a bit and he might not be injured now.
Personally I thought he should have been red-carded anyway for the tackle that
injured him.
