Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson is dreaming of going all the way in the FA Cup this season.
After overcoming Fulham in the fifth round, Spurs have the daunting task of a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the quarter-finals.
A win against Jose Mourinho's men would mean Robinson is just one game away from a cup final appearance at Wembley.
The England goalkeeper has fond memories of watching as a child, but is hoping to live the dream come May.
"It is a dream of mine to win an FA Cup, it is something I used to watch avidly as a kid and it means a lot to me as an Englishman and an English player," Robinson said.
"I remember watching the cup finals as a kid with all the previews and team buses heading to Wembley.
"The FA Cup final will be very special this year too with it hopefully being back there."
Robinson has suffered a dip in form recently, but manager Martin Jol believes he is back to his best after some fine stops against Fulham.
The former Leeds man denied Moritz Volz and Brian McBride with superb saves as well as preventing what looked like being a Mido own goal.
"He tells the other players all the time, that he wants a clean sheet," Jol added. "That is what he had and everyone saw he is a very good goalkeeper."
