    3-1 Spurs is my prediction. Bassong Hat trick. Afterwards the team bath is filled with custard and the entire team jumps in and engages in back slapping and manly horseplay!

    I'm really looking forward to the pre match festivities with my pals, really not looking forward to the actual match experience

    Now that poch has seen off one dinosaur in Wenger its time to usher Jose towards the door.
    There will be dark arts and turgidity aplenty but the pureness of our cause will see us through, the powers of light will be on the side of the Lillywhites.

    3-1 to Spurs, 2 for Harry 1 for Moura when he comes off the bench.

    In a Kenyan spurs style I'm have some family over for dinner, my dad, who started on the madness of being a spurs supporters and my brother will watch the match with me will we support some beers, roostertails and/or red wine.
    Then we will be joined by the wives for a dinner of
    Empire roast chicken with rice and Naan bread and Bombay potatoes,
    Roast chicken with apricot glaze with mash potatoes,
    Classic roast chicken with roasts and gravy.

    Pear tartine with cream

    Followed by port or dram of glenmorangie.

    Nervous, you better believe it.

    FA Cup remains our only chance to win a trophy this season. With us now in the semi final, we need to make the most of it, to go all the way to win it. But it won't be easy as we have to overcome our FA Cup semi final jinx first. We have lost our last 7 FA Cup semi finals to Chelsea(twice), Arsenal(twice), Portsmouth, Newcastle and Everton. That defeat to Portsmouth in 2010 was unforgivable ! Portsmouth were shyte and had just been relegated but we somehow managed to lose to them. We need to do much better this time. ManU will be desperate to win like us. But we have beaten ManU at home in the league in our last 3 matches. Since we have used Wembley as our "home" this season, we need to make use of the home advantage to beat ManU and progress to the Final.

    We need to play all our best players in this match. There is no reason to rest any players. We are not going to get many chances against ManU, so we need to make use of any chances that we get.Kane has not been at his best since returning from injury and doesn't have a good record against ManU. We will need Kane to get back his goal scoring boot in this match. I will prefer to start Lamela instead of Son in attack, with Eriksen and Alli. We will need Lamela's work rate and tenacity to unsettle ManU. Wish Eriksen can score direct from freekicks for once ! Alli tends to step up against big teams. Hope Alli will get a goal or two here.

    This match will be won or lost in midfield. We need to control the midfield to have any chance of winning this match. Dembele has been in great form but Wanyama and Dier has been making too many mistakes in recent matches. Whoever partner Dembele in this match, need to step up and avoid any errors in midfield. Maybe, Moura can come on late in the match as needed.

    Our defence are going to be under pressure in this match. ManU have capable attacking players who can hurt us if given chance. Wish we can start Alderweireld in this match. If not, we have to hope Vertonghen and Sanchez will be at their best to stop ManU. Surely, we need to start Lloris in goal even if he had made a few crucial mistakes in recent matches. There is no logic to start Vorm who makes his fair share of mistakes. It will help us greatly if we can stop ManU scoring in this match.

    This is going to be a tense match. We need to win this match in normal time as we have a poor record in pelanties. We need to get an early goal to help settle our nerves and then go for more goals to kill the game off. Let's hope we will turn up with the right team and meteorology to beat ManU and progress to the FA Cup final.

    Everybody dance now!

    Already feeling nervous about this match. We need to make use of our "home" advantage against ManU to go all the way to win our first FA Cup trophy since 1991. Performance is not really important in Cup matches as long as we win. Let's hope we will do just enough to beat ManU and qualify to the FA Cup Final.

    Im pretty keen on 3 at the back today and having Son and Lamela on the bench - good chance of extra time and having those two fresh for it (whether they come on in the second half or just for ET) would be a bonus

    The final modern day hoodoo to finally nail, an FA Cup semi-final win. 8th time lucky? Please, 27 years. It's been far too long.

    But we certainly need to upgrade on the Stoke and City performances, I wont count Brighton as this will be a different starting 11 to Tuesday.

    As suggested, Jose will have his box of tricks open today, they wont get caught out in the first minute for sure. Personally I am glad we finally got to witness Spurs win at Wembley against Wimbledon, otherwise I would be far less confident driving down later.
    As ever, first goal is vital, would go as far to say, one goal wins it, dont see it being a goalfest

    Same here. Three bricks before 12 o'clock. Then you know it's important cup game time.
