We beat Morecambe on Saturday and pulled a cracker in Spurs in the next round.

We beat them in the final in 87 but how things have changed, as we are now in League One, while they are still a top flight club.

But the Cup is all about the day, so who knows ?

I had a drink after the game with a couple of Morecambe fans, and they loved the Ricoh and their day out, and they even wished the Sky Blues all the best for the rest of the season.

As I wrote before, the majority of fans are decent people, and these two proved it beyond doubt !
