Burnley 2 Spurs 1 Carling Cup (3rd Round)
The wheels were starting to come off the Glenn Hoddle management roller-coaster.
It was to take another ten months but serious questions were being asked about his managerial ability and the attitude and commitment of the players. Doubts were being raised in the minds of the fans who idolised Hoddle and wanted him to succeed at Tottenham.
On a wet winter’s night Spurs took the lead through Gus Poyet but once Burnley went ahead in the second half there was only going to be one winner.
An inept and very disappointing display as Spurs went out of the competition to a lower Division team without showing any fight or pride.
The clock was ticking for Glenn Hoddle as manager of Spurs.
