I will save the match reports to others more qualified to write quality pieces. My attention will turn to Spurs and their fans.
Did Spurs get stage fright today, playing in one of the best stadiums in Europe? Did they drive down Holloway Road and think crikey what an impressive stadium; did the noise of 60,000 fans make them tremble?
Well something obviously happened, because I wondered who on earth we were playing at times, this certainly didn`t look like a Derby game to me, infact I think Arsenal players were shocked at times at the lack of commitment from the spurs players.
How the Spurs fans can sing SUPER TOTTENHAM FROM THE LANE and then watch anything but super, after having this week slated Arsenal fans and calling them fickle, well hello pot calling the kettle a dark colour of black? All I heard on the radio on my drive home were Spurs fans moaning, the site here is about fans slating Jol, and judging on this latest performance how much longer will he last as a manager?
To top it all, your so-called hardcore fans walk out 10 mins before the end; I had a text from a Spurs fan at half time saying he was going home! How pathetic? And you tell us about supporting our team?
The players had no one to go over to after the game and thank for their support because there wasn`t anyone left.
I thought the spurs players tried their best to bully arsenal and came off second best. Your left back was lucky to stay on the pitch and Jol thought so too and subbed him at half time. If Keane showed the same level of passion in his play as he did in his moaning to the ref every 5 mins then maybe you wouldn`t have played with 10 men.
All of the fans on this site were this week were talking the talk yet failed to walk the walk, except this time there was no lasagne to blame, just bad management and an average team who had a one off wonder season last year by all accounts, living on past performances, the real test in any good side is to be consistent and that is something Spurs fail to do every time. Enjoy Europe while it lasts because if this is the performance you are going to put in I doubt very much you will see anywhere over the English Channel next season.
