For Sky Blues fans, the White Hart Lane tie was a poignant reminder of one of the greatest days in the club's history- their 1987 Cup final victory over Spurs- although they were unable to pull off such a result on Saturday.

Instead a strong Tottenham side took the lead just 12 minutes in when Clint Dempsey stabbed home a Gareth Bale flick.

Bale lengthened the scoreline as he netted a deflected shot from the American, and it was Dempsey who secured the win with his second goal, a header from the back post, to make it 3-0.

During his five-year spell at the club, Spurs assistant boss Freund has reached the semi-finals on two occasions, and now firmly has his sights set on reaching the final.

He said: "We know what we want to do in the league, we have won the Cup eight times before and we would like to go all the way this year.

"It was a professional performance.

"In the first half it was a different class. It was a great performance and we deserved the win.

"We didn't have to remind the players to be professional. They are really good. They put the opposition under pressure, they played with a high tempo and created chances."

Freund went on to praise Dempsey's brace, adding: "It was great to see Clint scoring twice.

"He needs goals. Adebayor scored last time so it's great for the squad that we have strikers that are scoring."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
