    no ones made a thread yet. might as well go ahead.

    after beating villa now we face Wycombe at home. was thinking about going to this but within no time my mate text me (I was at work all day) that it was sold out.
    assuming we'll field a very weakened side. fingers crossed we can get some good draws which will allow us to progress in this comp whilst rotating. Hopefully we can make it to Wembley.... after all we better get used to playing there :dunce:

    Year of the rooster, our name is as good as on the cup :D

    Feeling slightly nervous today. Wycombe are unbeaten in 16 games and come up against a second string Spurs side.
    Should still be too strong but it has banana skin written all over it.

    blooming norah- what an emotional rollercoaster.
    I actually think both of sons goals might be own goals. not sure either one was on target.

    didn't even realise we were down to 10 men until I watched MOTD this morning :laugh:

    As I said before the game, had banana skin written all over it.

    2-0 didn't flatter Wycombe at all at half time. The reality is it probably should have been more. Pathetic first half. Wycombe should have been 1-0 up after about a minute so that should have been an immediate wake up call.

    We're not winning this trophy unless Pochettino changes his attitude towards it.
    We went with a back 3 against Villa which clearly didn't work, changed the system and we won.

    Yesterday he got the selection wrong. The three subs all made a difference yesterday but that almost cost us too because it left us with ten men for twenty minutes.
    To get it back to 2-2 and then throw it away (cross from where Trippier would be too) is frustrating. Moreso given it was our free kick that gave Wycombe possession!

    Credit to the team for getting the win but it shouldn't need three subs to win against league two opposition. We should never have been in a position where we had to rescue the game.

    Very harsh on Wycombe, they deserved a replay. One of the rare occasions I've seen the home supporters applaud the away team's efforts after the game at White Hart Lane.
    It almost never happens.

    On the plus side, we're through at least and Ryan Mason tribute at half time was incredible.

    Fulham away. i'm sure we will field a weakened side but might have to buck our ideas up after that scare. can't go that weak again.

    we could get to the quarter final without playing a prem side. hell could we even go further than that? can't say we haven't be fortunate with the FA cup draws so far.

    Said above that we're not winning this unless Poch changes his attitude. Went strong today and we were rewarded with a convincing win.
    One game away from Wembley. Millwall at home in White Hart Lane's last ever cup game.

    Hopefully don't slip up. Long overdue winning this (any really) trophy.

    Ve y fortunate- to think we cud (potentially) get to a Wembley semi final not having played a single premiership team.

    If we don't slip up then the going will get very tough beyond. Every chance the semi finals will all be top 6 teams

    Dont fancy my chances but I'm gonna make every effort I can to buy tickets for the game.

    Stubhub is your best bet, you usually pay more than face value (£25) but it shouldn't be obscene for this game.

    Should find some around the £30-40 mark.

    Try pm'ing Glenspurs, I know he had a spare and he'd be likely to sell it to you at face value too.

    @superyids @DeadlyDemon don't think Millwall game will be on stubhub as it isn't included on Season Tickets.

    My bad. Didn't think about season ticket holders not getting tickets.

    Anyway, last ever (probably) cup game at White Hart Lane today.
    Really looking forward to it! COYS!

    Starts to get a bit harder from here. Chelsea in the semis.

    starts to get juicy from here. we'll be underdogs against Chelsea but we've certainly got a chance.

    the prospect of the first ever North London derby final still remains a possibility
