I'm sure Bruce will post a fuller review but I thought I should let
those outside the UK know the result.
1991 FA Cup Final:
Tottenham Hotspur (0) 2 Nottingham Forest (1) 1
Forest's goal was scored by Pearce after 16 minutes, direct from a
free-kick conceded with an appalling foul by Gascoigne. Crossley saved
a Lineker penalty after about 35 minutes and the teams went in 0-1.
Stewart equalised after 55 minutes and the game went to extra time.
The winner was an own-goal by Des Walker who headed in under pressure
from Mab***after 94 minutes.
Gascoigne was stretchered off immediately after Pearce's goal, having
hurt his leg badly when fouling Charles. He may be out of action for
some months and his transfer to Lazio is in some doubt.
Congratulations to Forest for getting to the Final and making such a
good match of it. I feel very sorry for Clough ( senior ), Walker, and
the rest of the Forest team, but I'm sure they'll be back.
Meanwhile, the celebrations are on for Spurs, who now have more FA Cup
wins (8) then any other club. Spurs have completed a notable Treble
for North London football ( Arsenal get the League, Spurs the Cup, and
don't forget Barnet gaining promotion to the Football League by
winning the Conference! ) We eagerly await next season's response from
Liverpool, Man Utd etc. and European football.
