Rodney Parade is a throwback: an old-fashioned ground with a hostile crowd.

I said before the game that I didn't think Spurs would have witnessed anything like it and so it proved.

Newport were fantastic without the ball. They denied Spurs any opportunity to get rhythm and Mauricio Pochettino said he did not feel there was the right desire within his group.

Mike Flynn has done a fantastic job. I re-signed Flynny to the club and he was part of the team that got promoted to the League.

He is infectious and honest. It is about managing people and he knows how to be honest with his players.

Newport have given a great account of themselves and, by earning a replay at Wembley, secured revenue that they would never have been able to generate. I had split loyalties, though I did tell my wife I wanted Spurs to win.

If Tottenham are to fulfil their potential, they have to win something. It would be a travesty if they did not win a trophy with this group.

The year we won the FA Cup, we went to Blackpool in the third round. It was dreadful! The wind was howling and I remember one goal-kick by Erik Thorstvedt that didn't come out of the area.

We only squeaked through 1-0 and, apart from the final, that was probably our toughest game.

On Saturday, Pochettino saw a weakness in his team but they overcame it. This might just be something that kicks them on to win the competition. 

It would be a travesty if Harry Kane and Co did not win a trophy and they should kick on now
