Ooh, if we get them in the cup we could be the first team to get thrashed at their new ground. That would be exciting.

Another cup competition humiliation to add to the collection in recent years...

Optimistic.Although they've probably got more electricians working at the new ground than Blues average attendance

Maybe we could do the North London double and Chester could open the scoring...

Harry Redknap has called Gary Neville "an absolute disgrace" for saying Spurs' sides over the years have on occasions been "pathetic, spineless and soft". I think Neville makes a fair point to a certain degree. Certainly soft. Pathetic and spineless might be a bit OTT, but I can see where he is coming from.

I thought it was funny when Neville said even if you go 2-0 down to them, you will fancy yourself to win 5-2.

One of the funniest football stories I ever read was a spurs one when some greedy got placed 50,000 on them to win at full time at a moment when they were 3 up against the Mancs. They lost 5-3.

As ever in matters like this nobody does it better than Small Heath. I remember singing to the tune of The Banana Boat song "Swindon, Swindon, 4-1 up and you lost 6-4....not one, not two, not three, not four...4-1 up and you lost six four"! Made even better by the fact we heard the news whilst on a coach coming back from a victory at Highbury. Tony Daley winner on Easter Monday 1993 if my memory is correct.

The stadium looks top banana to be fair to them.

I appreciate how childish the capacity is too, 1000 more than their neighbours.
