What Doug Livermore said about ...
... on his time at White Hart Lane ...  10.11.1998 (Liverpool programme)

"When you spend 10 years of your life at one club, then you canít help but have a place for them in your heart. I had a great time at Tottenham and learnt such a lot about the game during my time there. I spent a few seasons in charge of the reserve team at Spurs and we were very successful at that level, winning three titles in a row. I was then appointed assistant manager to Terry Venables, which was a great experience for me. Working with the reserves was a good grounding because I got to know the youngsters at the club and I helped them progress.
Working with Terry was a wonderful opportunity because he is a terrific coach and a great man manager. He has such a vast knowledge of the game and my time alongside him was invaluable really. When he moved upstairs and took on the Chief Executive role, I was given the responsibility of managing the team. That was something I really enjoyed and it was handy for me that Terry was still at the club because I could go to him for advice whenever necessary."
 

... Tottenham's 19919 FA Cup run ...  10.11.1998 (Liverpool programme)

"We had a great run in the competition that year (FA Cup 1991) and to round it off with a win at Wembley was brilliant for everyone concerned. We defeated Portsmouth away from home in an earlier round which was a great result and on that particular day, Paul Gascoigne was simply unbelievable. He was unstoppable and although it was a great team performance, he showed touches of genius throughout that match. In the semi-final we knocked out Arsenal with a tactically superb performance. Everything we had done on the training ground in the week leading up to the game paid off and it was a joy to watch. And then in the final we beat Nottingham Forest which of course is something all Tottenham fans will remember for a long time."
