    Right, one step from Wembley.

    But weren't we in this exact position last year? Granted Spurs are no 2008-09 United, but it's still going to be a tough one.

    So, FSC feels that the great match up of Wolves/United, and then David Beckham are more important so we're shown delayed at 5:00pm.

    Oh, right, FSC+ also exists!

    ...

    Nope, Juve/Fiorentina takes precedent.

    No way am I waiting until 5pm for a replay. See all in the chat zone.

    COYW!

    I don't think so, Timmyg. I think United knocked us out in the previous round.

    Also to the point is that Roy didnt throw up much opposition to United.

    We're going to win. End of. And since I'm used to waiting to see Sunday matches, there's no reason why I can't wait to see a Saturday match.

    COYW.

    Oh, would it be not politic of me to promote Timmyg's latest podcast? It features THREE guys all of whom have first names with only three letters in them. This is NOT the most important thing about the broadcast, though. Check it out!

    Hmmmmm... What to say here?

    If there ever was a time to get spurs - this is it.
    JJ - out
    Lennon - out
    Huddlestone - out
    Bentley - out
    King - out
    Woodgate - out

    Bale can go to the left mid with Assou-Ekotto as leftback and Modrich into the center, but who knows how harry will play it. Still leaves Kranjcar on the right who has been uninspiring as of late.

    Would be a good time to have o'hara around.

    Depending on how all the injuries pan out - it could look very good for Fulham.

    On top of the other injuries Spurs are dealing with, Defoe is battling a hamstring issue, though he did manage 70 minutes against Everton yesterday.

    You may not believe this, Jens, but I'm gutted that King is out. He's a 150% class act -- a rarity among English central defenders -- and a brilliant footballer. There's a significant shortage of quality players who are quality individuals. I hope he returns to match shape right after the opening match of the WC.

    I am unusually confident of a Fulham victory, so let me list my reasons:
    1. Roy
    2. The Cottage
    3. Jensers' post, supra
    4. Roy (again)
    5. Zamora

    Timmy & Others:

    Yes, FSC gives us the delayed treatment on TV Saturday. However, if you are willing to spend $4.95, you can watch it LIVE on FoxSoccer.tv. They are rolling out their live broadcasts this week & Fulham vs Spurs is included.

    May be a bit lame, but I'm willing to spend $5 on this. Since its a day pass, I can also watch rugby live rather than delayed, so not a bad deal.

    Yeah I was wondering about how I was going to watch this match myself. In Chicago, the Globe Pub's TV sports schedule lists it as being at 11:20 with "(computer)" afterwards- meaning they must be showing the feed from FoxSoccer.TV.

    They're also showing the delay at 4 PM- but I have the additional issue of the Missouri-Kansas basketball game being on at 1 (which is the biggest regular season game of the year for my alma mater) and the Globe being about an hour and a half of hassles with public transportation away (given fewer Metra trains and longer CTA waits on Saturday).

    I was hoping it'd be shown somewhere online for free, but I may be S.O.L. I'm not sure I want to go all the way there to watch an internet feed (especially since I'd have to DVR the Missouri-Kansas game)- I've been to the Globe and seen internet feeds on the TVs and there always seem to be technical difficulties with the transfer. I saw on the FA's site that it's being shown live on ITV- does anyone know if ITV has a free internet feed similar to ESPN360?

    If not, I'll probably just get up and watch the gamecast on the Fulham site or ESPN... but it'd be nice if I could see it on my computer without paying $5.

    Actually Don, we were in the Quarter-Finals last season when we lost to United at home.

    Why do I want to win this match so much? Simply because it would mean so much more to Fulham fans to get to Wembley than it would ever mean to Spurs. It has been a long, long time since we've been to Wmbley (35 years to be exact) although it was a final then, I'm confident we have every chance to play there twice (after getting through the semi's as well). We played the blue lot down the road in the Semi's in 2001 and lost 1-0 at Villa park...this time the Club is in a stronger position and we have Woy.

    So with all of that said, I'm nervous already and I know us Fulham fans will be doing everything in our power to get the boys through.

    Well, ye-ah... but Fulham's been to Crew Stadium and Spurs aint!
    :banana:

    That's odd. Dont remember it as such a big deal. Maybe because we didnt expect to go further?

    Its killing me I can't go to this one. The wife had planned a trip with the girls along time ago and as tempted as I am to bring my 15 month old daughter to the Cottage, I think I'll have to take this one in on the telly. Great thing if we win...no effing way I won't be at Wembley and if we lose....well lets just say it may have been better not to have been there (not really, but that is what I will tell myself).

    Going to be a super tough match. Need a strong game from the back 4. This could be the perfect game for Bobby to crush remaining dissenters (including any doubt I still have about the boy) and at least ingrave a 'B' onto the Fulham Legends mantle with the rest to be filled in over the next couple of years (or a few more letters this year depending on how things shake out). I just hope that we don't play like we did the last time we played the Spurs in the 2 - 0 match where we just failed to show up and put in a lackluster peformance

    I think the boys and Woy will be up for it. Give'em hell for us Mike!

    It's cause we got our asses kicked so bad in the Quarters to Man U that we've all kinda erased the game from our memory. Remember, not long after that ass kicking came our great 2-0 win over Man U at home. A win tends to stick around in the noggin' longer.

    Glad to see you posting again DtD (hope that means you're feeling better). Without looking the pre-ManU match build-up, I'm betting we all were hoping for a result (maybe even some false bravado), but not surprised at what happened.

    I'm fired up because I honestly believe we can and will win this match. It ain't going to be easy, Defoe scares the hell out of me. The Big Aussie will have to be large.

    To be fair, between the injuries and all the extra Europa League games the draw has been a lucky one. So why not take advantage of it now?

    Thanks Joe. I've been feeling ok for awhile now (will know more in 10 days when I go back to the specialist after 6 months) but I'm, well...blogging less, so I have more time to hang out here. :banana:

    The Good; Defoe in doubt with a hamstring issue

    The Bad; Murphy has a groin strain and faces a late fitness test

    The Ugly; Peter Crouch's teeth

    The bad news is that I had a very realistic and terrible dream about this match. In fact it was so realistic that I was momentarily surprised when I saw this thread. The good news is that whenever I've had a scary dream like this, it has never come true. COYW!

    On our patch, we're better than they are. That should be enough tomorrow. I'm going to treat myself to a "live" broadcast on FSC at 4, so I won't be in the chatroom for the match.

    I'm very pessimistic on this one. We can't seem to one up Administration Arry for nothing. 1-2 Spuds, but hoping for better. Man I want to see us beat them!!!
