Whenever Spurs get a new manager (or whenever the day ends in a 'y') noises come out of White Hart Lane about how Tottenham are looking to emulate Arsenal, or that the time has come for the Lily Whites to overtake the Gunners in the league standings.
Juande Ramos is a much respected manager and turned Sevilla into a title challenging side in Spain's La Liga, indeed his playing side has been compared to that of Arsene Wenger.
Speaking after his first league game as Spurs |Ramos said 'Arsenal, right now, are the team that is most in form and playing the best, They're the closest to my philosophy of play. It's a game of much speed, triangles and possession.'
'But to do this you have to have the appropriate players. In terms of a team's profile, Arsenal's is my favourite.'
Whilst it is a compliment of the highest order that rival teams want to be like us, ultimately this will be Tottenham's undoing.
We always give Spurs fans grief, and I genuinely believe their midfield and defence is the weak link in their squad, if I'm being honest they do have SOME great players and the position they find themselves in right now will not be the position they find themselves at the end of the season.
When all's said and done, David Dein and co. unearthed an absolute gem in Arsene Wenger, one of a kind, completely unique, one in a million. People have tried to re-create what Arsene Wenger has done and failed spectacularly (anyone remember Gerrard Houlier).
However if Tottenham want to progress they need to find their own identity, to become their own club and press on thinking about themselves rather than how close they can get to us.
Maybe if Spurs can concentrate on Spurs their fans can find some happiness.
Actually.......what am I saying?? As you were Tottenham Hotspur Football Club!!!
