Results for F.A. Cup

F.A. Cup Semi's

11:40 am
We'll win by more than three goals and face the blue scum in the final come May......

Don't we all wish it was that easy? How can you equate, what in effect is up till now, our biggest game of the season?

How can you predict the outcome against a team that really has nothing to lose, especially since their relegation was cemented only yesterday? We all know what happens when you corner an injured dog? You pat it on its head and take it to the vet. Maybe, just maybe, we can take Portsmouth the cleaners, via the vet?

Let's put things into perspective; they are a side that has struggled to compete with most sides this season. Their team will be without some of their best performers, Jamie O'Hara, Hermann Hreidarsson, etc. So we just have to turn up and win.

Oh if only it was that simple.

I was at Elland Road in 1995, where we faced an Everton team that wasn't too far off Portsmouth's current predicament, although they did have Andy Hinchcliffe and his notorious free-kicks and corners. We had Klinsmann, Sheringham and were still spinning after winning up at Anfield in the Quart-Final. Goals from Jurgen and Teddy saw to that. We were going to win; all we had to do was turn up.

F.A. Cup Semi-Final - Everton 4-1 Spurs

A certain Daniel Owefin Amokachi took us apart that day. It was the first time I had cried at a football match. It was terrible.

We are packing up now for Wembley. Both Sarah and I will be there. Jaymes is off in Cyprus, and will be watching the game with the Official Spurs Supporters Club in Nicosia. He's asked me to inform any in Cyprus that there will be a BBQ in Murphy's at 4pm and all are welcome.

Squeaky bum time? Let's hope not.

Our Prediction: Spurs 4-1 Portsmouth

PS. Damn you Amokachi.

Bale on the left wing?
It seems as though everyone is up in arms at the minute about the players that will kick-off the F.A. Cup Quarter Final against Fulham.

I think the solution's a pretty straightforward one; stick Benoît Assou-Ekotto into the left back position, continue with Niko Kranjčar on the right, stick The Modfather™ in the middle of the park to play alongside Sgt. Wilson and push Bale further up the flank, onto the left wing.

Here's hoping that Bale's knee is in tip-top condition come Saturday at 5.20pm. It didn't look pretty with that icepack on it after he was taken off during Wales International match.

So then, do you think we'll win the game and grace the Wembley Marshes? I think this one will go to a replay. Wish it doesn't though, our squad is as bare as it can get.

Prediction: Fulham 0-0 Spurs
