3 – Style & Substance – Keith Burkinshaw
What kind of emotions did you experience when your Spurs side beat Manchester City in the 1981 FA Cup Final? “I felt the club were back where we belonged - back on the big stage. The FA Cup has been much abused in recent years, but back then it was massive to win it, and lifting the trophy represented a huge achievement for the club. Personally, I felt a manager’s job was to win trophies and that’s what I achieved. There was an element of repaying Tottenham Hotspur’s faith in me and there was also a sense of relief. I’ve always believed you should treat winning and losing as the impostors that they are, but I have to admit I was a very happy man that day. We celebrated with an open-top bus ride, but to be fair we didn’t really go to town on the success.”
