'2-1 And Spurs Fluffed It Up'

'2-1 And Spurs Fluffed It Up'

Despite having played on Saturday's, Sunday's are by tradition, quiet news days, and considering our mammoth win at Ewood yesterday today has been as bad as any.

So imagine my delight then upon the final at White Hart Lane with Sp*rs having been 2-1 up, the Lilywhites snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Before all the Vital Spuds get here with their 'You must fear us because you're always writing articles about us', I say NO.

Spurs are our local rivals, and as a Gooner it is my right, nay, my duty to take the piss out of Spurs at every opportunity.

And today is just one of those days.

I didn't watch the first half because despite being a fan of football in general, I find it difficult to stomach watching a Spurs game unless it's versus Arsenal, so decided to watch 'The Phantom Menace' instead.

Shortly after Ewan McGregor had dispatched the evil sith I decided I may as well have a butchers at the game seen as the second half was about to start.

Andy Gray reliably informed me that the score was 1-1 and the Pascal Chimbonda should not be on the pitch for raising his hands to Nicky Butt in retaliation (More inconsistencies in refereeing standards).

Not long into the second half Nobby Solano made a fantastic block on the line only for Berbatov to scuff his shot into the ground and past Shay Given.

The annoying sound of 'We are Tottenham, super Tottenham' could be heard, just, and this was my cue to switch of the telly once again.

My wife decided it was time to talk about decorating or some other such subject and after ten minutes I thought even watching Spurs was a better choice.

The tv was switched back on.

One thing that caught my eye about the game was the work rate of Obafemi Martins, the geezer ran himself into the ground, and as he ran away from goal I thought he would be denied a goal he so richly deserved.

How wrong was I?

Martins, from a ridiculous angle and 20 yards away from goal, smashed an unreal drive past a dismayed Paul Robinson and into the roof of the net. (You'd have saved that if you'd lost a few pounds Robbo).

Laughter ensued for my wife and I.

Seconds later laughter changed to exctasy and an OAP strolled through the Sp*rs defence and made it 3-2.

My sides were split.

Unbelievable missies from Robbie Keane & Ditmar Berbatov put the icing on a rather sweet cake.

Now when I give you the statistic I'm about to give you, bear in mind Gooners, this is the same team who's fans have baited and taunted us for the past 18 months how Tottenham are a team on the rise whilst the mighty Gunners are in decline.

Ok, back to that stat I promised you.

Today, Tottenham suffered their 9th loss of the season, that total is the exact same amount as they lost in the WHOLE of last season.

So if you Sp*rs fans are to be believed that Arsenal are a team in decline after their lowest finish in the Premier League since Mr. Wenger's arrivel, then following your logic, Spurs rise last season was incredibly short lived and now you a team in decline.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend Gooners.

What a shambles! My stomach is aching with laughter (or it could be the pasta I had last night?!) That Fat Liar hasnt got a clue, I hope they keep him as manager for a very long time! We better stop our decline quickly the mighty sp*rs are coming with excellence like Davenport and pyo lee! Barbie-tov cant be arsed half the time, Taino is just awful Robinson is at least 2 stone over weight they should smear icing on the ball he would get to a few more shots then! Oh what a good weekend!

lol great article. oap strolled through the defence hahaha! great line! they really are pathetic. Totally useless. I cant wait for the cup and the end of the season to thrash them (again) at three point lane. And their wonder boy lennon, what a goof. he has about as much end product as MG rover.

blimey the great one, what does that make spurs then ? i watched the game, spuds first goal was offside anyway, and chimbonda was lucky not to have been shown a red card, he lashed out, exactly what gilberto was shown red for yesterday. spurs bottled it second half as usual and if this second half display is anything to reflect their second half of the season 10 pts behind arsenal i would be worried ... might be a late contender for last gasp drop into the championship at this rate, who else ya got this month, everton - lose, fulham - lose, man united - lose... wow you could end up with zero points this month MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The great one? Is that an ironic name? Like your pal mr.commonsenCe (sic). If the best you can do is xenophobia followed by a splash of homophobia, you must live a really tragic life. Dickhead.
