FA Cup Quarter-Final: Spurs vs. Millwall

FA Cup Quarter-Final: Spurs vs. Millwall

 

At this point, it is safe to say that this has been one of the best seasons ever for Tottenham Hotspur. The team is currently 2nd in the Premier League with 53 points, 10 points away from the current championship leader, Chelsea. The upcoming match against Crystal Palace also looks like a match that Spurs can win if the players can stay true to form, but this match will have to wait.

This is because the match against Crystal Palace is scheduled on the same day as the FA Cup quarter-final match. Manchester United will be playing against Chelsea, while Tottenham will host Millwall for an epic FA Cup match at White Hart Lane.

Tickets and Other News

The biggest news coming out of this upcoming match is the disagreement between the two teams. Millwall would have been entitled to about 4,000 tickets for their fans, but – initially – Tottenham only offered 2,800 to the League One team. This resulted in a series of back and forth discussions regarding ticket allocation.

Eventually, the two teams reached an agreement. Tottenham allocated 3,681 tickets for Millwall, close to what the opposing team expected. The number was reached after a series of discussions involving the two parties, the local Safety Advisory Group, and representatives from the local council. This agreement means Millwall fans can start buying tickets to watch the March 12th clash between the two teams.

It is also worth noting that the betting scene for this match is particularly exciting. A lot of avid sports punters are already hard at work, analysing past matches between the two teams and making predictions. Those who are just getting started are making good use of a bookmakers free bets list and finding free ways to place their bets.

Past Meet-Ups

The rivalry between Tottenham and Millwall stretches back longer than you might think. The two teams were in the United League when they first met in 1896. Millwall Athletic won against Tottenham Hotspur with a final score of 6-5. Since that first match, Tottenham has faced Millwall 78 times, winning 45 of those matches and maintaining the upper hand in the process.

Millwall, on the other hand, has only won 21 matches against Spurs. The two teams last met in 1990 during a League Division One match. Spurs won with a 1-goal lead at the time and the two have not met since.

If we look closer at past matches, Tottenham won four out of five matches against Millwall, with one match ending in a draw. The four matches were all League Division One matches, including the epic match on April 29th, 1989, where Tottenham won by a whopping five goals.

Preview and Predictions

As mentioned early in this article, Spurs are in sparkling form. They continue to show one great performance after another, securing 15 victories out of the 26 games that we’ve seen so far. Their 53 Premier League points are truly a sign of strength, considering the competition has been very tough this season.

A lot of sports fans and experts are predicting another victory against Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final match. That said, Millwall is eager to score a victory and is known to have great tactics when facing giants. It would be interesting to see what they do during the match against Tottenham.

Of course, a victory is just as important for Spurs. Winning the FA Cup would mean a lot for the team and its fans. It will also get the squad ready for the next Premier League match against Southampton; it is always great to enter a match on a roll, isn’t it?

    • Richard Pytel March 6, 2017 at 6:46 pm

      shame there are no replays to get that extra money…..just extra time and pens in quarter finals

  • Gloster1861 March 6, 2017 at 5:54 pm

    A real cup tie seems likely. Strong team required to win this in 90 minutes, no arsing about please.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 6, 2017 at 5:47 pm

    I seem to remember the closest they came to beating us in recent times was 88\89 they were 2 up at the Lane and we got a 2-2 draw thanks to a gazza free kick. Vaguely remember that being right.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 6, 2017 at 6:06 pm

      Well……my memory’s fucked clearly. That was Q.P.R. we beat Millwall 2 nil a week later.

      • Spurstacus 💋 March 6, 2017 at 6:26 pm

        That’s not bad remembering. When it comes to football and football scores, I can’t remember what happened two weeks ago. In almost all other areas my memory is first class.

        Sorry. What was the question?

        • 61SpursNut🌰 March 6, 2017 at 6:30 pm

          FIRST!

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 6, 2017 at 6:32 pm

          Errr….I don’t remember. I had to look it up to clarify. Gazza did score a free kick in both games so I got that part right. Through the mists of time……

  • Gloster1861 March 6, 2017 at 5:32 pm

    We’re on 56 points, for information.

    • Gloster1861 March 6, 2017 at 5:33 pm

      Harry, did you write this last week perchance?

      • 61SpursNut🌰 March 6, 2017 at 5:37 pm

        I suspect Harry didn’t write it.

        • Gloster1861 March 6, 2017 at 5:52 pm

          On reflection, can’t see any speling misteaks so think you are spot on.

          • 61SpursNut🌰 March 6, 2017 at 6:30 pm

            Or any use of “opposed to” as opposed to “as opposed to” 🙂

  • Gloster1861 March 6, 2017 at 5:26 pm

    I was posting to myself in the previous blog.

    To recap, Costa should have been sent off for a high kick which caught West Ham keeper Adrian when they played at the Bridge last August. He had already been booked. He scored a late winner.

    He should have been sent off in two further matches (Watford, Swansea) and scored and won the points in both games.

    If there’s any justice the fucker should get a straight red in the first minute tonight.

    • Aussie in Switzerland March 6, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      Yes, and the cunts should be 7 to 9 points lower

  • Horndog 😎 March 6, 2017 at 5:22 pm
