Goal story: When Tottenham managed to capture two of the '78 World Cup winning squad they were waiting for moments like this. Ricky and Ozzy certainly captured the imagination of the Spurs faithful. None more so than this moment. After a 1-1 draw in the FA cup final a replay was needed between Tottenham and Man City, it was time for Ricky to stand up. Drawing 2-2 the ball was with Villa about 50 yard out - he proceeded to twist and turn through the City defence until he slotted the ball home. Legend.
