No doubt Spurs fans are going to blame Redknapp being so heavily linked with the England job for their decline this season, but is that justified? Isn’t this what they do every season? Their squad has no depth, it hasn’t been rotated nearly well enough and as the whole country is finding out, they have no tactical alternatives for when things start going wrong.
But who cares what’s wrong with Spurs? We won! I make that 8 Wembley wins in 10 and now our incredible run in the FA Cup continues. In six years we’ve only lost once over 90 minutes in the Cup and that was a freak loss to Barnsley!
Drogba was awesome leading the line, surely securing himself a place in the starting XI on Wednesday. Mata was ingenious, to not only set up Ramires (who scored a Messi-esque chipped goal, which surely even the man himself would’ve been proud of) but also to score without actually kicking the ball over the line – that takes some talent! Lampard and Malouda also scored to complete the rout.
“Sh*t club – no history!” they may chant, but four cup finals in six years will go down in history eventually. I have a feeling that 100 years into the future though, history will still stop at 2003 for Spurs fans.
