Sorry, Spurs fans, but Gonzalo Higuain is going to Wembley and will potentially play in a domestic cup final - something which Tottenham haven't done for 10 years, as one plucky Arsenal fan pointed out.
Let that sink in...
Of course - as Richard Keys once proclaimed - it was just banter.
Gonzalo Higuain has been in the country literally 6 hours...
...and he's managed to get himself in more domestic cup finals than spurs in 10 years...

Spurs fans will be kicking themselves at the opportunity to play at Wembley this year - oh wait. But still, last night's penalty shootout with Chelsea was a cruel way to leave the Carabao Cup.
Tottenham led the tie 1-0 on aggregate, but their injury-laden squad struggled to see the return fixture out at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea went on to win the match 2-1, which brought the overall score to 2-2. N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard fired the Blues to a two-goal lead, before Spanish frontman Fernando Llorente headed the tie into extra-time.
Penalties followed and Tottenham lost 4-2 after Eric Dier missed the target and Lucas Moura's effort was saved by Kepa. David Luiz slotted the final one, but only after Jorginho did this.
Higuain wasn't eligible - or perhaps even needed - in this semi-final. Chelsea will be hoping the Argentine can make all the difference against Manchester City in the final at Wembley on the 24th of February.
Tottenham's last domestic cup final was in the 2008/09 season, where they were - again - beaten on penalties, but this time against Manchester United who were held to a goalless draw in London at then-two-years-old new Wembley stadium.
It's been a cruel, trophyless 11-years for the North London club. 2008 was the last time they lifted a domestic cup.
No hard feelings Spurs fans. What is to blame for Tottenham's dry spell?
Let us know in the comments.
