David Dein Corruption Uncovered

After years of speculation, David Dein has finally been exposed for the charlatan that he really is.

On the night that Arsenal took on the mighty Spurs at White Hart Lane, David Dein was found to have been in cahoots with his old buddies at the FA, and the London ministry of transport.

As we all know, David Dein has always had full control of the FA, and even though it has nothing to do with it, the Premier League as well. And now it seems Dein has been using these contacts as a means to his own ends.

After hours of discussions, Dein managed to convince the FA & the ministry of transport to stage a traffic jam in order to delay the Arsenal team bus and unsettle the waiting Tottenham team.

Subsequently, after taking a 2-0 lead, the Tottenham team tiered and were pegged back to 2-2. Mission accomplished by Dein.

However, the Tottenham management and board will look to foil DD's almost fool proof plan by requesting that the original kick off times be used for the final outcome of the match.

If their appeal is successful, Arsenal will have both their goals chalked off as the match kicked off 30 minutes late and the Gunners goals were both scored in the last half hour of the match.

Daniel Levy is preparing a well thought out letter as we speak.

Ah ha! FOD has been saying since 1928 that in 2007 a man named David Dein will cause a traffic jam in 2007 to set up a 2-2 draw at WHL in the semi final of the carling Cup!! He's the root of all evil is DD...him and Mc Donalds...

Denilson looks some player. He looks like a brazilian Fabregas! great passer and seems to have lot's of time on the ball. Think he is going to a top player and is only 18.... Walcott seems a bit lost on the wing and looked a lot brighter when put up top with the "Beast" We have the team of the future and to think Bendtner, Lupoli, Muamba, are all on loan gaining experience.

Hard to stomach mate - I think 2-2 was about right on balance of play, just feel we are gonna need to be even luckier to beat you. Our 2nd goal was not a free kick admittedly, but i think the beast could defo have seen red before gobbling 2 goals. When he was on a yellow he gestured to the ref to book Defoe (which Wenger did not see lol) and Keane was defo onside for 3-1. But if you cant hold onto a 2 goal lead....then you dont deserve victory. I was sitting so close to you scum aswell! lol

It was a great game and superb atmosphere. I must admit I was thinking about flogging my ticket for the return leg after 20 minutes. Note to self....have as much faith in the kids as Arsene does.

I am deflated but dont think we are totally out of it. a draw of any kind will see us into ET. One thing i would point out is that the players on show who could most be classed as "kids" (Walcott and Traore for example) actually struggled. Wenger got the balance right for you i think.

Jacky B - i admire your optimism. But its going to be a mountain to climb for spurs in the 2nd leg. A couple of poor decisions, like your 2nd goal freekick and the keano offside, but i think they levelled each other out. The pace at which spurs played the game in the 1st 55 mins or so, they were never going to be able to sustain it thru the 90 mins. Once again, Arsene outmanouevred MJ tactically !!

Jacky B, spuds second goal should never have been as it was never a free kick, & although the first has to go down as Toure/Almunia's fault I am still annoyed at the blatant back pass by a spurs player which robinson picked up & resulted in spuds getting their first goal. Yes the defender was cutting out a cross but it was still a back pass, either that or the defender (possible dawson) was trying to score an own goal. I thought the spuds midfield was all over the place, Huddlestone & Zokora were awful. Its still not over but even a 0-0 or 1-1 draw is fine for us which certainly gives an advantage. Spuds however do have the luxury of being able to rest players for the FA cup game against championship opposition whereas arsenal will need to play all our main players against Bolton.

The great and fabulous Dutch got out alive, just!!! My mate Lee got done over unfortunately and another guy I know caught a fist. That's why the Spuds can't have 9,000 next week. Cesc was amazing second half, he really showed some leadership and I can only thank Paul Robinson from the bottom of my heart, have a donut on me slim! Denilson excellent, but really Eboue and Hleb changed the game by going at them, Spuds could have killed us off at 3-0, why they didn't go for it I've no idea. Anyways, enough, I'll save it for the match report.

Average age of the starting 11 was 21. That is with Almunia,Toure and Baptista included. Jacky, how long are you lot going to put up with Robinson. Too fat, too slow and bad descision maker.

First goal Almunia's fault, he called for it but didn't come. He took responsibility for it as well.

That was NOT a back pass it has to be INTENTIONAL, however i can see what you are saying. We could go on all day about those sort of things, but like i have said - the 2 pivotal decisions went against us. Baptista should have gone, and Keane was one on one, and flagged wrongly offside. However we also blew the 2 goal lead which i am happy to admit.

Jacky B - whats the point unless u have hope eh :). LD - I was disappointed with toure, coz i thought it was his fault for not clearing it away. Looks like i was wrong. I expected Toure to take more onus coz the defence isnt experienced and the goal keeper isnt good !!! But i was concerned abt the spuds playing us off the park in the 1st half, i mean, we lost possession coz of the pressure they put on arsenal players who had the ball. But all good in the end.

I felt defensively we were woeful, I'm inclined to agree that Toure did not take responsibility in the first half. However, Almunia had an off night, he is an otherwise fine back up goalie, as he proved at Anfield. Attacking wise, I think we looked good all night, even when we were up against it and 2-0 down I felt we could score, I just didn't think we could keep Spuds at 2. Why they didn't really go for it and finish it off I've no idea, but it could be a mistake they seriously regret.

Sorry but the way I see it the 2 pivotal decisions went against arsenal, otherwise we would be sitting here today having won 0-2. It was an INTENTIONAL backpass as the defender made no attempt to clear it, he simple played it back to robinson. Secondly the only person who thought Denilson had committed a foul was Poll so again it went against us. As for Keane, yes he was onside but I can remember countless 1 on 1's that he has messed up so there is no gurantee he would have scored, although he should have been given the opportunity, & as for Baptista I really think you are clutching at straws. The only person I have ever seen sent off for waving an imaginary card is Lauren against PSV in the champions league. Wenger has said he will speak to Baptista about it but having seen Zokora do the same thing on at least 3 occasions this season I think you are being somewhat petty!!

denilson what a promising talent he look wow, he didnt make 1 mistake all game did he, him and cesc bossed that midfeild especially in the second half, tottenham cam out the traps well and quick but the truth is we gifted them 2 goals so i would say we deserved a win, eoue was awsome when he came on but walcott looked out of depth out on the wing to be honest.

I think arsenal & spurs both need a true left winger. Rosicky is fine but we also need someone else. I really hope the stories are true about Ryan Babel coming to us in the summer. having seen him 4 or 5 times now he could make a massive difference to our squad. We really have so many quality players but truly the one area lacking cover is the left side. I suppose a lot will depend on whether reyes has to come back or not, obviously wenger wont want him (although he will say he does) but I seriously doubt madrid will keep him especially if capello leaves. I also hope wenger signs baptista but I am not convinced he will as I dont think he feels he has space for him, unless we suffer lots of injuries.

Don't get the slagging of Alumnia to be honest...he made a mistake on the first goal but he had no chance on the second, and he made an incredible save when it was tied 2-2 on that partial breakaway, raising his hand up to deflect the shot. Walcott I think just hasn't had enough game action, this is only the second game he had an extended run in since the Christmas period. So far this season he's been a lot more effective as a sub, as he generally comes in with less pressure and his ridiculous pace is even more effective against tiring opposition. That said he didn't do too badly up front with Beast...maybe Wenger plays him there from the jump next week, if Alidaire isn't fit.
