World Cup winner Martin Peters enjoyed two League Cup Final successes with Spurs. And he names his fellow midfielder Luka Modric as the man who could inspire the current team to a Wembley triumph on Sunday.
Peters helped Spurs lift the trophy in 1971 and 1973 and, as he tells the March issue of hotspur, despite winning further honours in a marvellous career, he will never forget either game.
"United are the favourites, as were Chelsea last year, but that can be a good thing," he says. "Winning this competition could turn a disappointing season into a good one.
"Luka will be key for us. He's started slowly...but now he's playing really well again so hopefully he'll be on top of his game on the day."
It's all in the Carling Cup special issue of hotspur, our new-look official magazine that's proving such a big hit with Spurs fans. And there is so much more in there for you to enjoy.
It's on sale now at £3.45 from all Spurs outlets and newsagents but supporters attending tomorrow night's game with Shakhtar Donesk at the Lane can double up and purchase both hotspur with the matchday programme (cover price £3) for the bargain price of £5 from your usual programme seller.
And subscribers have the opportunity to get a full year's subscription for the price of 10 issues with no extra charge for postage and packing. Two great bargains!
