Twenty Twenty

Twenty Twenty

1. That f*****g well hurt didn`t it?

2. Was that worse than Valencia, Chelsea, PSV and Barcelona?

3. What the **** has happened to our defence?

4. Have you ever seen Aaron Lennon run rings around the finest defenders in Europe on their own ground?
5. What did the world of football do to deserve Liverpool v Chelsea so often?

6. In the interests of karmic balance, will Arsenal be beneficiaries of dodgy decisions for the remaining six games?

7. Will Birmingham City subject the world to anecdotes about how Karen Brady and David Sullivan are really, really nice people who wouldn`t defraud a fly?

8. I may be a few weeks behind on this, but it has to be mentioned. In light of the sun`s 'Shut It` campaign aimed at players who disrespect officials, would the kind of disrespect they speak of include printing referee Urs Meir`s e mail address and home address, forcing him and his family to go into hiding as one tabloid newspaper did in 2004? Which newspaper was that again?

9. Does the Chelsea website have no shame? The recently advertised the away fixture at Everton as 'Sold Out`, despite the fact that they gave the tickets away and paid the fans` travel expenses.

10. Now Flamini is out for three weeks. When will it end?

11.What`s happened to Denilson?

12. How much will we lose by on Sunday?

13. Should Cardiff City be allowed in Europe if they win the F.A. Cup? The rule preventing them seems antiquated and ridiculous, but they were fully aware of it when they entered the competition.

14. Following Gareth Southgate`s assertion that he may not name a Boro captain for games in the future, how much does an armband really matter?

15. With the BBC having the temerity to report Darren Ferguson`s charge by Police, how long will father Alex`s self imposed BBC silence last now?

16. Evening Standard columnist and ex Tory MP David Mellor this week referred to Rafael Benitez as "the podgy Spaniard." Does this disgusting slob understand the word 'hypocrite?` Seriously mate, even Chelsea fans think you`re a tool!

17. Ronaldinho to Spurs. Has this replaced Reyes to Newcastle as my favourite transfer rumour of all time?

18. Who does Steven Gerrard blow to get on the Player of the Year shortlist every year? Mascherano has been infinitely better than him this season.

19. Why do these player of the year lists never carry anyone remotely interesting? I`m not bagging Adebayor, but surely Sagna was more worth a shout? Instead of over rated media whores like Steven Gerrard, why not Gareth Barry?

20. Gareth Southgate has revealed this week that Jonathan Woodgate left because "he wanted his challenges to be at the other end of the table." So why the hell did he join Spurs then?LD.

#5 - This is something I am trying to understand. Do the football gods really hate positive, open, attacking football? do they really prefer to watch anti-football? I don't get it.

Q21 will your manager ever stop embarrassing himself?Q22 if wallcott so good why dont the professor play him because he knows his a one run wonder.Q12 thats confidence for you. lots i hope!!!!!
11/04/2008 15:32:00
Dspurs, one run wonder? A.C. Milan makes one, Liverpool makes two. Aaron Lennon- a big fat lonely zero. As for manager's embarrassing themselves, errr, didn't you have a manager this season who was literally the last person to know he had been sacked? As for question 12, it's called realism, humility even. Something Spud fans couldn't begin to grasp. Remind me how your bid for fourth place powered by super star striker Barren Dent is going?

You know what Dspurs having read yoru comment on the previous post, for a moment i had a faint gliimer of hope that we might have found a single solitary spud with some reason. Having read your above post, i see how misguided i was to ever think that of a spud. Can you tell me why it is you love the Arsenal so much that you spend all your time here? Does it make you feel good to spend some time mixing it with the big boys?

Good article btw. Nice bit of light hearted entertaiment for those like me trying desperately to avoid doing any work on a Friday afternoon!

I don't like number 12.
11/04/2008 16:00:00
actually we have seen a couple of level-headed, decent spurs fans on this forum (cockaduddle, spursfan4eva are 2 of them) -- unfortunately the kindergarten brigade, the petty idiotic haters, outnumber them. At least if their windups were creative or original, it might be worth reading their posts. but all they provide is low rent dime-a-dozen, repetitive cheap shots. what's hilarious is how dspurs, yidedy, the spud who plagues poor Barcelona with his presence, and the rest care so much about the fortunes of our club, how deeply important we are to them, we're on their minds so much. They care more about us than their own club. I don't know any gooners who give Spurs much attention at all.

Without looking it up, at this moment in time, I couldn't tell you who the Spuds are playing this weekend, save for the fact that they are at home and not to Man Utd, Chelsea or Liverpool.

Abt Denilson.. seriously.. where on Earth is he?
11/04/2008 16:25:00
Did anyone expect Wayne Bridge to knock you out of euro?Did anyone expect Belletti to score his only Barca goal in a CL final? Did anyone expect Alex to score the winning goal against you lot? No! Believe in the blind one.I predict a clear 4-0 for Arsenal.

Not a round that really saw any upsets with the majority of those expected into the quarter-finals making it - arguably West Ham's win against Chelsea was the only one.
