FA cup frustration

The first time I cried after watching Tottenham lose a football match was when I was nearly 12 years old and we lost to underdogs Coventry in the 1987 FA Cup Final. I don't know why I cried but it was probably through pure frustration - we should have won and we didn't.

Today, we conceded a 3-1 lead at Chelsea to end up with a draw and an unwanted replay. I am hoarse from shouting at the TV - why did Jol take off Berbatov and Lennon when they were playing so well? Why did he bring on Mido who is a lumbering lazy idiot at times? Why play 3 at the back when Chelsea were on an all out attack? It was the Carling Cup semi-final all over again - we had a 2 goal lead and we end up losing it. Am I frustrated? Yes I am. Did I cry? No I didn't, but my car is sparkling clean after a very aggressive wash and wax!

If it was only Jol's incompetence, but it's worse: Berby is injured.

I was at Wembley for the Coventry v Tottenham Cup Final. Like you, I cried. Unlike you, I was doubled up laughing!
