Everyone is making the same bad joke after Spurs knock Swansea out of the FA Cup
"Spurs are on their way to Wembley!"
As they are every other weekend, of course. Tottenham booked their place in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday afternoon as they comfortably beat Swansea 3-0, without the help of their talisman Harry Kane.
Spurs barely needed to get out of second gear to beat secure the win that brings them one step closer to winning their first trophy of the Mauricio Pochettino era.
Spurs have been playing their home games at Wembley this season, which is famously where the FA Cup semi-finals and final take place. You won't be surprised, then, that the hundreds of thousands of creative geniuses who inhabit Twitter are making the same terrible joke about Spurs' big day out at Wembley.

Must be a special feeling for Tottenham fans, knowing they're on the cusp of a big day out at Wembley.

You get the picture. Many fans of course pointed out the home advantage that Spurs will have in a supposedly neutral venue. In fairness, the fans will be divided 50/50 as in every cup semi-final.
Look like Spurs will enjoy ‘home’ advantage for the remainder of this season’s FA Cup. Imagine there’ll be some sour grapes if they win it...

A stark contrast from the alleged Wembley 'hoodoo' that was meant to curse their home form this season. Remember that?
Spurs will have the advantage of being used to the size of the pitch at Wembley but that's pretty much the full extent of the home advantage. They are arguably the favourites to win it now, with United and Chelsea the only remaining top teams in the competition. There will likely be some disgruntled opposing fans if they do go on to lift the cup in May.
