The 4-1 Premier League victory for Nottingham Forest over Spurs occurred on September 24th during the 1996-97 season, a game in which Collymore played the full 90 minutes for the visitors.
Steve Stone, Bryan Roy (twice) and Lars Bohinen were each on the scoresheet for Forest, with Ilie Dumitrescu scoring for a Tottenham side boasting names such as Sol Campbell, Jurgen Klinsmann and Teddy Sheringham.
Collymore also revealed that he would miss the broadcast ‘bunker’ behind the dugout, naming Tottenham’s home turf as one of his favourite football grounds.

Tottenham’s meeting with United in the Premier League will be their last ever clash at White Hart Lane, as they prepare to embark upon a new chapter at Wembley Stadium next season.
The Premier League side had confirmed earlier this season that they were to bid farewell to their home of 118 years, and play their home games at Wembley from the start of next season.
But Wembley will only provide a temporary base of operations, and with White Hart Lane set to be demolished following Sunday’s match, Tottenham are hoping to open their newly-built stadium in 2018/19.
