25/09/1976 Tottenham Hotspur 0 Norwich City 0 20/10/1976 Tottenham Hotspur 1 Birmingham City 0
The print deadlines for the match against Norwich meant there was no coverage in that issue and by the time Tottenham next played at home they had suffered an 8-2 defeat at Derby County. Clearly they had bigger problems to worry about than being knocked out of the League Cup by a team two divisions below them! Spurs finished the season bottom of Division One and were relegated alongside Stoke City and Sunderland.
The programme for the game against Birmingham City contained 16 pages and measured 13.5cm x 21.5cm.
25/09/1976 Wrexham 2 Sheffield Wednesday 2
Wrexham's programme for the game against Sheffield Wednesday reported that Spurs manager reckoned that Wrexham would "waltz out of the Third Division" so impressed was he with the Reds' performance.
Wrexham manager John Neal had allowed the players a couple of pints after the victory but was keen to stress the importance of the league matches coming up.
