Having beaten Fulham in the fifth round of the FA Cup, Spurs were drawn to play Millwall in the quarter-finals.
Drawing a League One side at White Hart Lane at such a late stage of the season would normally be cause for pure celebration, but when it’s Millwall there’s also the matter of their infamous fans and the trouble they might cause.
Hopefully the most memorable scenes will take place on the pitch, in what will be the last ever FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane. The game will take place on the weekend of the 11th-12th March.
Here’s how Spurs fans reacted to the draw.

FA Cup third round draw January 1967. 'Oh dear, that's not so brilliant.' Bill on hearing Spurs had drawn Millwall.

#thfc should we overcome Millwall and reach the FA Cup semi final at Wembley, we would receive 31,500 tickets.

If they don't want a repeat of the 2011 London riots they're going to have to put Spurs v Millwall at 6am on a Wednesday morning.
