TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR    1995/96
      Intertoto Cup
     
 

* Spurs played their two home matches at Brighton's Goldstone Ground.

 

Initially enthusiastic about a revamped Intertoto cup competition - with UEFA Cup places for successful sides - the FA then found it difficult to fill their allocation of places. Tottenham, Wimbledon and Sheffield Wednesday were finally persuaded to enter but while Wednesday had respectable results the two London sides didn't! They both struggled - not surprising given that they fielded largely youngsters and loan players - and did not survive beyond the group stage. Spurs and Wimbledon were later required to appear before a UEFA disciplinary court for fielding weakened sides.
