Tottenham Hotspur host West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Saturday 19th March 2011 in the Premier League.

This will be the 239th meeting between the two clubs.

The first meeting came in the Thames and Medway League in September 1898 when West Ham were known as Thames Ironworks. That game at Northumberland Park resulted in a 3-0 home win for Spurs. Thames Ironworks won the return fixture 2-1 at the Memorial Grounds in East Ham.

The teams met again in the Southern League the next season with Spurs running out 7-0 winners at Northumberland Park and the return fixture ending in a 0-0 draw at the Memorial Grounds.

The 1900-01 season saw Thames Ironworks become West Ham United and the Hammers and Spurs played each other in both the Southern League and the Western League. By now, Spurs had moved into their new ground at White Hart Lane but it would be another four years before West Ham moved to their current home at Upton Park (or more correctly, the Boleyn Ground). Spurs won three of the four matches played that season against West Ham with the remaining game being drawn.

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United continued to meet in both Leagues up to season 1907-08, when Spurs switched to the Football League.

The teams didn't play any more competitive matches against each other until after the First World War. During the War, several games were played in the various competitions organised to maintain the morale of the public.

Spurs beat West Ham 3-0 in the first FA Cup match played between the teams in February 1920. To date, the clubs have played against each other together 11 times in the competition with Spurs winning 6 games to West Ham's 3 and 2 drawn games.

The first Football League meetings came in the Second Division in season 1919-20 with West Ham winning 2-1 at Upton Park and Spurs winning 2-0 at White Hart Lane. Spurs regained their top flight status that season, which had been taken away in very contraversial circumstances.

Spurs and West Ham played their first match in the Top Flight of English Football in February 1924 with the Hammers drawing 0-0 at the Lane but winning the return leg at Upton Park 1-0.

The clubs met for another four seasons in Division One from 1924-25 to 1927-28. From 1932-33 until the outbreak of World War Two, the clubs met in the Second Division.

During the Second World War, Spurs and West Ham played 20 games which often featured 'guest players' as many of the club's regular footballers were called away on National Service.

Regular football resumed in season 1946-47 and the teams played four seasons in Division Two before Spurs won the title in 1949-50 and were promoted to Division One, where they won the first of their two League Championships the next season.

West Ham United were themselves promoted to the First Division for the 1959-60 season and they enjoyed a lengthy spell in the Top Flight which lasted until 1978.

West Ham United beat Spurs in the first Football League Cup meeting in 1966 and to date the clubs have met 7 times in the competition with Spurs winning three games, West Ham two games and two games drawn.

Spurs were founder-members of the Premier League in season 1992-93 and have been ever present in the competition. West Ham won promotion to the Premier League for the 1993-94 season and lost to Spurs 3-1 at Upton Park that season. The Hammers beat Spurs 4-1 in the return match at the Lane.

To date, there have been 31 matches played in the Premier League with Spurs winning 15, West Ham winning 10 and 6 matches drawn. West Ham won the earlier match this season in September at Upton Park 1-0 with a Frederic Piquionne goal.

The clubs have met in two foreign venues, firstly on tour in the United States in May 1969 where Spurs beat West Ham 2-1 in Baltimore and more recently in the Barclays Asia Trophy in July 2009 in Beijing, China with Spurs winning 1-0.

Overall, Tottenham Hotspur have won 98 games, West Ham United have won 81 games and the remaining 59 games have been drawn.

We should beat them, but Im not sure, potential banana skin, look at wolves, blackpool, but we do need this win to keep our fourth spot hopes alive.

If you look at the stats, they only have a winning record against us during WWI and WWII (not counting friendlies). I find that extremely odd. Explanation please!

It would dishonor the Crown and Allied cause to let them serve in the armed forces? tongue.gif

Any ideas? laugh.gif

The games played during both world wars are not generally counted in a club's match history as many of the players were unavailable due to National Service commitments and "guest" players often turned out to play for the club they were stationed nearest to at the time.

Thanks THFC...I had that thought (that they were filled by guest/stand ins). I recall something like that happened over here during this time too. I guess my follow-up question would be, was there a major base/station/shipyard near West Ham and not Tottenham? I've been doing a lot of reading on WWII, so it's turned into an interest of mine. I did a quick Google search and the Wikipedia entry for Essex County listed this:

"There are several smaller airfields, some of which owe their origins to military bases built during World War I or World War II. These are popular for pleasure flights or flying lessons; examples include Clacton Airfield, Earls Colne Airfield, and Stapleford Aerodrome.

The Port of Tilbury is one of Britain's three major ports"

I apologize if my geography is off, but that sounds like a good explanation. More "players" were available to West Ham due to its location then Tottenham. I didn't find too many near Tottenham, but maybe someone can correct me.

The way s*** is going I bet the city game ends in a draw & we draw too, the players are insistent on torturing us till the last day it seems.

what have we had - 2 games in about a month? I hope the rust hasnt set in and our players are sharp - if not that is the only way i can see us losing.

it would be unforgivable to let them do the double over us.


2-1

I say it a lot... but this is a mist win. 1 point from the last two games has knocked our 4th place challenge and anything less than 3 points here and we'll have to be happy with 5th. A win for us a chelsea and it's all to play for again.

Its one game with three pts at stake & their are plenty more pts to play after its done & dusted.
BUT.....................
I honestly believe that if we fail to beat The Hammers at WHL on Sat we can kiss goodbye to our chances of a top 4 finish.
A win is that important & nothing less will do!
That said I think we will win this one.
2-1 to the Spurs in a nervy, tight match.
As a footnote, Im taking my 5 year old son to this one. Ive already taken him to a couple of pre-season friendlys but this will be his 1st PL game at the Lane.
He's so excited & cant wait!
COYS!!!

Thats wicked mate, hope we get a win for you and your lad against the Hammers!! Enjoy!!

I was gonna add to my last post that we need to be really up for this game, not expecting to turn up and win as has been the case against lower level opposition at times this season!! I expect to see us line up like this:


Gomes
Corluka Daws King/Kaboul BAE

Lennon Modric Sandro Bale

Crouch/Pav Defoe

We need to get off to a good start dont wanna see us having to come back from 1 down!! After 180 minutes without conceeding against Milan lets hope we can do 90 against the Hammers!! COYS!!!

Are Gallas and VDV injured?? Are King/Kaboul back from injury?? Slightly confused by that line up but i would think its more or less right except VDV for Crouch/Pav and Gallas for King/Kaboul. Unless ive missed something and they are injured :/

Just seen this on Gallas touch and go but at least its not as bad as it first looked. Please Kaboul or King be fit just in case, cant bear the thought of Bassong again.
