Spurred on

Spurs will be our FA Cup quarter-final opponents, after they easily disposed of Forest in last night's replay at the City Ground with goals from Noe Paramot, Robbie Keane and Mido.

Having lived in Nottingham for seven years, I developed a bit of a soft spot for Forest, and they could have done with the extra revenue that progress would have granted them.

But they've got much bigger fish to fry this season - namely, fighting to stay in the Championship, a battle they're currently losing - and in any case we have to be forgiven for leaving no room for sentimentality in our quest for a first major trophy for 36 years.

I'd take great pleasure in dispatching Spurs, but they've already won on Tyneside once this season, so we shouldn't take anything for granted.
