No Cup surprise for John

Posted on 20 February 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

John Gorman says it was no surprise to land Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Having already encountered Bolton and Tranmere in both the Worthington and FA Cups, it always looked likely that either Fulham or Chelsea would be paired with us.

The tie has extra spice thanks to the 5-1 mauling Chelsea suffered at the Lane in the Worthington semi-final, second leg.

"It wasn't a surprise," said John. "It is amazing how we've had three teams now who we've also played in the Worthington Cup.

"That is a coincidence and we hope it's a continued sequence, that we get through this round and get Fulham in the next round and onto the final - which would be nice."
