Chelsea v Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final is live on talkSPORT at 17:15 (GMT) on Saturday 22 April.
Goals from Jimmy Robertson and Frank Saul sealed a memorable win in the first all-London FA Cup final 50 years ago, as Spurs beat Chelsea 2-1.
Bobby Tambling scored the Blues’ goal towards the end, but it was not enough to prevent Tottenham winning a third FA Cup final of the decade.
Alan Mullery, who lined up for Spurs in 1967, was full of praise for club captain, the late Dave Mackay. “As we were lining up to come out from that tunnel, he was throwing a ball up the wall and heading it backwards and forwards again and then standing behind him [was] me,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com. “He said, ‘these are a load of kids, you know’ and we went out and beat them.
“He couldn’t even think of losing, he was so strong in doing what he was doing and the marvellous footballer that he was.”
Robertson shared these views about his skipper. “Dave was just unbeatable and if you were in the same team as him, you had more than half a chance,” he said revealing the confidence Mackay instilled in his team-mates.
“We played against Tony Hateley up front,” Mike England added. “When you marked them they were a bit of a handful at that time but on the day we took care of them. To get one over on Chelsea, we loved that!”
