The FA Cup does this weird thing where they draw the next round before the previous round is even close to being finished. That’s how we know that the winner of today’s match between Rochdale and Tottenham Hotspur at Spotland will go on to face the winner of the replay between Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday. If you’re Spurs, that’s a pretty easy trip to the FA Cup semifinals. But first they need to get past The Dale.
