The 168 league places between the sides is the biggest gap between opponents the 150 years of the FA Cup and the gulf in class showed as Spurs' fringe players took their chance to shine. Only the crossbar spared the blushes of Hart and Tottenham. This was the ultimate culture shock for the millionaires of Tottenham.

Unlike Tottenham's new $1.5 billion stadium, this is a sparse venue crammed between two streets of red-brick terraced houses with one small stand. He's a really good player and there's more to come as well.

We started seriously and we finished seriously, Mourinho said.

Most important, of course, a 5-0 victory to take us into round four in our first tie against non-league opposition since 1995, a hat-trick for Carlos Vinicius, history made with Alfie Devine becoming our youngest-ever player and goalscorer at 16 years, 163 days and Jose picked out Dele and Gedson for their contributions. It was the only goal in the second half after Brazilian Lucas Moura had also scored from a free kick before the break. It's just unfortunate at the end that we conceded five goals.

And when the final whistle blew after a valiant display they went over to thank the fans peering from Rossett Road gardens.

The stadium has a capacity of 3,185 but Marine have broken their record attendance of 6,000 by selling over 30,000 virtual tickets.
