...effort. Spurs actually managed to win a game, doing so without much undue hassle, admittedly it was just Fulham but now they're just two wins from a cup final.
...Spurs victory. Tottenham nicking it in the last seconds, from a fourth division side, after being pretty useless for the rest of the game, it's what the cup is all about.
...in the form of Steve Bruce losing. That's about as much as you can say for Spurs defeat of Aston Villa in the F.A. Cup third round game.
..eat it too. A bit of luck and some decent officiating and Spurs could still have their cake, three of them, and their wouldn't be the discussions about prioritising competitions.
...deserved. Spurs played Leicester for the third time in a week and a half in their third round F.A. Cup replay and they finally got the win their play deserved over the previous games.
...three. Spurs' two two draw with Leicester in the third round of the F.A. Cup means the teams will now face each other three times in a week and a half.
...a true giant. Dave Mackay an integral part of Spurs 1960s side that brought trophies to the club, as he was at Hearts and Derby, has died aged 80.
...lasted. Spurs F.A. Cup run lasted a whole two rounds as they crashed out to Leicester City in the fourth round.
...miss. Didn't manage to catch the Spurs versus Burnley F.A. Cup third round replay, just the highlights and some of the talking points.
...lately. Spurs have had two wins and two draws over the festive period and not a single post on here about any of them, till now.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...a cup game. It wasn't long ago, it was just two cup defeats ago in fact. Back in the halcyon days when Spurs were in all four competitions they entered. Down to one now and you don't give 'em any hope in that.
...watching, does AVB get the blame? Spurs avoided an upset by overcoming Coventry City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup with a bit of ease.
...now. Overseeing a tactical masterclass of ineptness, watching his team in white and blue fall to pieces while the officials make one of the most god awful calls in the game. What better qualifications can a man have to get the England job?
...Wembley... Wembley... We're the famous Tottenham Hotspur and we're off to Wembley. Doesn't quite feel right when it's only the Cup semi-final but it's still Wembley after beating Bolton 3-1 in the quarters..
