Wilson's dreaming

Wilson Palacios has had a taste of Wembley - now he's dreaming of FA Cup glory.

The midfielder could only sit on the bench and watch as he was cup-tied for last season's Carling Cup Final against Manchester United.

He stepped out at the national stadium for the Wembley Cup pre-season tournament against Barcelona and Celtic in July and would love to return in front of a full house for English football's showpiece event in May.

"I played at Wembley during pre-season but it's completely different to go and play in the final of the FA Cup," he said. "I was unfortunate last season because I was sitting on the bench and not playing when we got to the Carling Cup Final.

"I was nervous and excited to be there that day and I can't imagine what it would be like to play in the FA Cup Final at Wembley."

First we have a tough fifth-round tie at Bolton on Sunday. Wilson made his Spurs debut at the Reebok in a 3-2 defeat just over a year ago and says it's vital we bounce back from Wednesday's disappointing loss at Wolves.

"This is a very important game," he said. "Of course, I remember my debut. We played well that day, came from 2-0 down to be level at 2-2 and then lost during in injury time.

"We drew at Bolton in October and those results show how difficult it is to win at Bolton. But as I said, this game is very important to everyone at Tottenham. We all want to win."
