'If It's Football, It's Vital'

39,000 Put Spurs To Shame

With only a grainy internet feed keeping me updated with the events at Villa Park, my tv in the back ground flicked between Eastlands and White Hart Lane.

Whilst keeping an eye on the laptop I noticed during the 5 minutes stints at White Hart Lane a number of empty seats in the ground despite this being their biggest European match in years (and them being the self proclaimed 'best fans in the world').

White Hart lane was some 3,000 fans shy of full capacity as Berbatov led them into the quarter finals (he'll be the next player to leave, far too good for Spurs) of the Wafer Cup.

I'd like you to bear that in mind when I tell you only a couple of miles down the road 39,000 Gooners crammed (ok not quite, there was a bit of leg room) into Ashburton Grove to watch Steve Bould's Arsenal youth team beat Man Utd (they just can't beat us this season) in the first leg of the semi final youth FA Cup.

The record crowd watched an entertaining game as the Mini Gunners took a slim advantage going into the 2nd leg thanks to a stunning goal from Kieran Gibbs.

This is what being a big club is about.





If there are any Vital Arsenal members who attended the match last night and would like to give us a match report to be published on the front page, please do so by leaving a message in the site forum.

Shame on the F.A for putting this on the same night as a first team fixture, imagine what the attendance would have been then! Why couldn't the Villa game have been played Saturday? Still, it's nice to know we get more for youth cup games than the Chavs get for CL games.
Little Dutch
I've seen the highlights on ATVO and the goal was a peach. Barazite & Merida also looked in good nick.
Rocky7
Hold on a second Paul... Your having a go at Spurs fans for not turning up for their game when you didn't travel to Villa Park OR even go to Emirates to watch the youth side!!! Double standards or what?!
UnitedWeStand
Not that it's any of your business cheif but travelling 300 miles on a Wednesday night would cost a pretty penny, and considering the impending birth of my first child, I have to choose my games for the rest of the season. Coupled with the fact I had to be up at 4.30 this morning for work, it wouldn't have been a good idea. Good enough for you?
Rocky7
ooooh it's all kicking awf... »»Arsene Knows««
Wingston75
39,000 perhaps it's cos it's the only trophy you stand a chance of winning this season!
merlin
Yet you stand a chance of winning four trophies and still dont get that many. Plastics!!
Rocky7
lol, rocky you're wrong.We've won one already.Who did we beat??The spuds go on and on and on about how great their support is, yet no one goes to the games!I think they've realized they can't win it.
k_chelski
Do Chelsea have a youth team? Seriously. Perhaps they could deploy all the Siberian kids their owner has orphaned?
Little Dutch
How am I wrong?
Rocky7
39,000 tourist's let in for a quid,well done you must be proud.Enjoy your exciting end of season,yawn.
HATEtheGOONS
HTG, have you enjoyed the last 46 years?
Little Dutch
Enjoy your inevitable capitulation. You know it's coming. You better pray you avoid Sevilla in the next round.
Rocky7
Being 28,i could'nt really say.Soz,it was'nt a quid it was £1.50 with a programme chucked in.
HATEtheGOONS
HTG, answer the following question with a simple yes or no. Have you ever seen Tottenham win the league? (I know you've seen the league title won at WHL, but that doesn't count!)
Little Dutch
Only a year older than you and I've seen Arsenal win it 5 times. Thats 3 more than you club has won in it's entire history.
Rocky7
Is that Sevilla who drew 2-2 at home to Donestk then needed an injury-time equaliser to get to extra-time.Scary.Then again i'm just chuffed that we're the only British team left in the cup and that NO-ONE will fancy drawing us. Dimitar's 2nd goal last nite was even better than Alex's last week.
HATEtheGOONS
HTG, that measn you were twenty years old the last time Tottenham even won a game against Arsenal. Ouch!
Little Dutch
Sod ya 5 titles i've seen Highbury reduced to rubble.
HATEtheGOONS
HTG the Sevilla that went through with an extra time goal and demolished Barca with 10 men.
G4L
An the best stadium in Britian erected. A stadium that will provide us with the spending power to compete with anyone. How many trophies have you actually seen Spurs win? I've seen Arsenal win 13 not including charity sheilds. What's you tally? 2? 3? Maybe this is why you're getting so excited at the prospect of winning the mickey mouse cup (and you needed a bye to get through)
Rocky7
"Sod ya 5 titles i've seen Highbury reduced to rubble." Sp*rs fans... gotta laugh at them.
G4L
They were trying to give away the sp*rs Wafer cup tickets at local schools and we still got more fans in watching our mini gooners than their 1st team! Even Highbury reduced to ruble looks better than that s*@t hole you call a football stadium, paint is not that expensive please buy some and decorate. Even the council dont want your dump of a team representing them, f*@k off to the olympic stadium, we came we saw and we took over north London, end of.
iceman10
Rocky you said we have a chance of winning four trophies.Lol, we have a chance of winning 3, we've already won the mickey mouse cup.
k_chelski
Best stadium in Britain erected? Suppose the new wembley is a ****hole then,arsenal fans arrogant nah,just dumb.
HATEtheGOONS
Best CLUB stadium in Britain. S*'te hart lane is a dump so im not surprised you are using Wembley to try and win an argument. Nobody has any time for your club, not the local council, not any other clubs fans who have to run your 70's style gauntlet of hate when attending your s*@t hole, not the FA who told you to f*@k off when your wanted to talk to them about suspending the West ham game, even your 'great' fans couldnt be arsed to fill the ground last night. Run along and get ready for the wafer cup draw, a competition UEFA deem we are too good to compete in. Good luck in next years intertoto, really impressive that you have applied to play in that, real progress at the lane.
iceman10
their great fans also try to pick a fight whanever possible and also like calling themself jews which i find Weird :x
ExRox
all arseh*le fans must be sooo disappointed that they will win farrrk all this season that they will turn to their youth teams to fly their flag for them. what a bunch of silly *****s you are. just cannot stomach the fact that spurs are having some success in the cups so out comes any little criticism you can think of. pathetic.
powerspur
And it's all gone quiet over there...
simmy8_2000
i dunno why we bother its like talking to a brick wall whan talking to spuds
ExRox
Some success? F*@king hell, 6th round of the FA Cup and 1/4 finals of the also rans cup?! For all your 'success' you would swap places with us and the season we are having in a heartbeat, the champions league is what you crave but Gollum FC will never get that precious top 4 place.
iceman10
arsenal have really achieved quite a lot over the last twenty years or so and have admittedly been one of the really top clubs in england. I assume you regard yourself as fans of a 'big' club, if this is so, then it is really ignorant and naive that you should scrape the barrel in an attempt to belittle the mighty spurs. the lot of you have just proved that you are a big club with small minds. you are shamelessly critisizing the 'wafer' cup in order to soften your pending disappointment should spurs go all the way and win it. this coming from a team that have always boasted about participating in the CL but have actually never won it. You are just as small as spurs for the simple reason that you have never won CL. It does not count that you played in the final and lost. Infact, that makes it even worse.You cannot be mentioned in the same breath as pool or manu because they won it and you didn't. even villa are better than you lot.
powerspur
so what success are you talking about powderpuff??? i dont remember you winning anything,our first team may not have won a trophy,but at least we are consistantly in finals,can you say that about your team yet,try actually winning something before you start bragging about it. fool
fran merida
If Villa are better than us, that means Huddersfield are better than you. They won the league title three times on the trott I believe. Go on, admit it, Huddersfield Town are better than you.
Rocky7
You still feel you can call yourselves the mighty spurs after years and years of mediocrity! The Wafer cup is ridiculed because it is a cup for the also rans of europe, if you stopped trying to promote it as some incredible competition (Duckworth lewis method is easier to understand than the group stage) the we might stop taking the p*!s out of it. Please talk about the champions league when you have competed in it, I cannot discuss with you how difficult it is to win as you havent got a clue. By your methods pool and manu cannot be talked about in the same breath as The Arsenal as neither has been through a league season unbeaten. Fill your ground then come back and argue as thats what the article is about.
iceman10
god are all spurs fans really that Blind and stupid :x
ExRox
BTW if you were playing a champions league last 16 game last night (Unlikely I know) your ground would have been full. Its not just Gooners who think its s*@t competition so do over 3000 of ur own fans.
iceman10
the fact that somehow you found the time to know how many fans were in our stadium shows that you ae keeping a close (too close) eye on our progress in a competition which you dont rate. are you that confused that you would like us to lose a competition which you dont rate? make up your mind what you want. would like to see your reaction the minute we win the 'wafer'. the expression on your faces will tell the true story!!!!!!! hypocrites.
powerspur
you can go unbeaten a million league seasons in a row iceman, but if you haven't won CL, then you cannot be talked of in same breath as pool and manu. simple as that. is it that hard for you to understand?
powerspur
Who ever won more league titles than us (be it huddlesfield), then yes, they are better than us. pity their supporters dont think so though. spurs will always be regarded as a big club, no matter what the gooners think. should we win CL before you lot, then it will only reinforce what we yids already know: that we are bigger than you. If had the advantage of playing many years in the CL and have wasted that advantage by not winning it. for that you can blame nobody but yourselves.
powerspur
What we did has NEVER been achieved by anybody else in the HISTORY of English football, you dont understand how incredible it was because you are lost in world of mediocrity. If we cant be talked about in the same breathe as pool and manu then sp*rs stopped breathing a long time ago and are now in a vegetative state being fed from a drip and smiling at pictures of orange penguins whilst dribbling. If you win the Wafer cup then well done but dont throw it in the faces of teams deemed too good by UEFA to compete in the competition.
iceman10
These guys really are crackers! How are sp*rs bigger than Arsenal? what stat confirms this boast? your trophy haul? the size of ur fanbase? your stadium? your average league position? the fact you have never played champions league? the fact you have a racist nickname? what planet are you from?!
iceman10
well since we are talking about europe here, i belive 5 european trophies have been won in north london, with arsenal winning 2 and spurs winning 3, of course you gunners would have 3 too if mr nayim didnt score from the half way line some years back
spursinbarca
And that makes you a bigger club....................OK!
iceman10
but arsenal have had the better last 10 years, but what arsenal fans are so concerned of which has reduced them on commenting on front page issues like a few empty seats is that spurs are improving year by year, and over the last 4 years arsenal have obviously been in decline from a club callenging for th e premiership year in year out, to just qualifing for europe each year, they say they have promising young players but at the moment these players are not good enough, getting done by average teams like blackburn and psv in important games must be upsetting
spursinbarca
Surely not as upsetting as being the new force in north london, being the team on the up and then getting beaten (easily) by the team you claim to be in decline! In Decline but still getting to the champions league final, in decline but still 13 points ahead of ur shower with a game in hand, still in decline yet reached another final. We have patience with our club we dont write 46000 articles on sacking our manager after a defeat. We are confident because our manager has proved he can build title winning teams. ur manager is an imbecile of the highest order, makes bad subs time after time and doesnt even buy the players! We wrote the article because its fact we had a higher attendance for a youth team game than you had for a Wafer cup last 16 game where you were giving away tickets to local schools! your the ones who go on about your great support but facts are facts ours is better!
iceman10
BTW if you dare to call Blackburn and PSV average teams what does that make you?! dont tell me, a team on the up! When you qualify for champions league I might take you a little bit seriously but until then Sp*rs are about as threatening as a water pistol.
iceman10
The arrogance of you lilly boys is amazing. one is calling your club mighty when they are clearly not the other calls PSV average, a team that regularly plays champions league and produces players like Robben and Van Nistlerooy. Blackburn are average yet they to have played champions league, have won the premiership and won a trophy more recently than you!
iceman10
Not sure most clubs would be upset if their ground was 92.6% full on a work night. Seems like a bit of a stupid thread as Spurs cannot fit 39,000 into WHL at present. Before making such foolish comments, can you answer, 1) which seats were empty? 2) were they the most expensive at £70+ for a game already won and with an extra game on Monday? 3) Did Braga take up their full allocation of seats which would have been somewhere between 3,500 - 5,500? And £70+ is a lot more than £1.50 but based on some of the arithmetic skills shown by you lot on our page, I guess you need to be told that
Sir_Harry
Good try but you were giving the tickets away to local schools, that must have accounted for a few thousand who bothered to turn up. Remember it is you lot who claim to be among the worlds best fans. Do you think the ground would have been full if it was champions league last 16 game? The game was far from already won, there is no such thing when sp*rs are playing (2-0 and 3-1 then making a complete mess of things ring a bell). I think all at Arsenal are surprised Londons self proclaimed best fans did not fill their stadium for their biggest european game in donkeys years especially when they are trying to spin that the quality of the wafer cup is almost on par with the champions league.
iceman10
Sir_Harry, you're actually comparing ticket prices between a youth fixture and a european match?!! it was a work night for gooners as well, and the point is that you spuds go on and on abt how great you are as fans but the stats are there - you cannot fill a stadium for such a match !!
prits
27.000 for an F.A cup 4th round. Nuff said.
hatespur
The obsession with spurs is somewhat unhealthy.
col8
We have those morons on every day trying to tell us how much closer they are to us than everyone thinks and this type of thing should make them realise how wide of the mark they are. This is why we have these types of debates.
hatespur
Very good lads. Even if our game was a sell out, which at £71 for a top ticket, and at the very least £40 for a restricted view, i wouldn't expect it to be.....You would still have had more cos our capacity aint as big. On top of that, the 3,000 empty seats are indicative of the fans opposition to the clubs decision to make near enough every cup game category A. Furthermore, with all these cup games, our fans must be genuinely struggling to cope financially (something you would not no about this year). add to that the 50p you charged for a ticket, and its not that impressive. quick question.... Did you sell out your allocation at Villa park?
Jacky B
Yes we did.
hatespur
i dunno why you ar eripping harry for comparing prices........ this article is a stupid comparison
Jacky B
Jacky, surely you were diligent and saved up your extra pennies last season when you played the fewest matches for a top flight team ever? Didn't Spurs fans still consider that your best season for years? Seems funny in that case that our season is supposedly over.
hatespur
look mate... not all our fans are as affluent as your merchant banker fans. Now i am not saying that the dirt under our finger nails is some sort of badge of honour, its just a fact
Jacky B
so all of these spuds are using dial up connection?
k_chelski
what does that mean Chelski?
Jacky B
Jacky, I'm just having a bit of fun. I've had to cut out most away games this season as a result of baby 2, things change. With regard to the the headline, I'm sure if the situation was reversed your lot would capitalise on the opportunity. Not that it is ever likely of course. FYG, I have not had any digs at your knighted hero Sir-Harry.
hatespur
Morning Kevin, have you found the car yet??
hatespur
lol, you said spuds are havin' money problem.So are you all on dial up internet connection.
k_chelski
Morning hatespur.I will not answer that question since i know it's a gooner prank.
k_chelski
actually, i am at work KEVIN. I dont have the internet at home.
Jacky B
they looked awsome when they played Hull's youth team. went to that match was a really good game at the KC :) good luck to them
thedunedan
Hatespur.......Tell me about it. I have enough probs looking after myself, let alone any kids. Glad about this campaign to reduce the cost of tickets....... (which i can rarely afford)
Jacky B
JackyB, I spotted the Noel Gallagher quote, but to say Spuds fans are more impoverished than us is baseless. We may have the prawn sandwich circle, but 99% of those people don't travel. Most of the people I know who go to every game are postmen and 9 to 5ers. Fact is, we have a much larger support. I appreciate your point about the comparitive prices, but in terms of prestige, a youth cup game versus your biggest game for years shouldn't even be a contest, factpr in the fact that our first team were playing, which meant 3,500 of us who sold out our allocation at Villa Park couldn't go, and a lot of people would have been reluctant to go in favour of watching Jeff Stelling and Merse blurt out hilarious "Merseisms" like, "oh no, he's hit the beans on toast!"
Little Dutch
I was just having a bit of banter with Hatespur, and anyway, I'd say monday night is a bigger game. I would still dispute you that you have a larger support, and that claim depends on what you classify as a supporter. Your hardcore following is indeed, no better off than our fans. However, I'd suggest that your "Prawn sandwich circle" is much larger than you'd like to admit. On the subject of Noel Gallagher.... I am lucky enough to be going to see him at the royal albert hall... Now that is something i can afford!
Jacky B
Good article LD, but just to be clear - are you simply saying that Spurs are NOT a big club...or that their support is a bit flaky AND they are not a big club...or that we are better than them in every way AND they are not a big club?
Andy-bayor
I see the bunch of you morons have gone a bit off the topic since my last post so I feel it my duty to help you back onto the topic in question, that of who is the biggest club: Arsenal or Spurs. Now forget about the crap of filling stadiums and other bull**** drivel that has been mentioned in between my last post and this post. Now pay attention before you go all hay wire with misinterpreting what I am saying. At the moment I have to admit that with all your league titles, you are better……..BUT. And as you can see, this is a big BUT. You have wasted you time in the CL by not winning it. You had many, many chances, played in it year after year after year, and have absolutely nothing to show for it. And when you had your best chance of winning it, lady luck came along and decided to cash in her bad luck ticket to pay you back (for stealing the Judas I should happily add). Anyway, back to the topic. If it so happens that we, the o’ so MIGHTY spurs happen to win it before you, then we, the MIGHTY spurs, AUTOMATICALLY will claim the mantle of BETTER team, and all your league titles will count for nothing because ONE CL title will take complete preference over a multitude of PL titles. To claim the title of biggest team back, you will then have to win the CL. But even if this scenario plays out exactly this way, we as spurs will still know that we won the CL first. So it does not matter how many league titles you have, it is the CL that you need to win and you have to be honest and admit, that you are a long way from doing that. On the other hand, the MIGHTY spurs, being the renowned cup side that we are, and having the pedigree of winning more euro trophies than you lot, could come along at our first attempt and bag it with ease. Now wouldn’t that be just swell!!!!
powerspur
You are off your rocker... why dont you just say "if we turned the table upside down, we'd be above you". I was convinced it was a gooner on a wind up writing your piece, but it appear not to be the case... let me reassure you that reading it is like tripping in a parallel universe :-)
Andy-bayor
i would like to point out, to gain entrance into the CL you need to finish 4th or higher, something you don't seem to be able to acheive, and after last year many predicted you would break the top 4, HAHA... every dog has its day, yours was last year, and now you are slipping back to being average.. yes you play good attacking football, but you need to stop leaking all those goals.. and seville will punish you more than braga did if you continue to stop playing at the 70th mark and sit back... mighty spurs ? so if your support is so big, why haven't the board built you a massive new stadium ? you say your have big support, so filling it wouldn't be a problem, and if you think your going to have champions league football, then they should build for the future. fact is they haven't and there is a reason for it, because you won't break the top 4 mould, you won't play inthe CL which means you will be a feeder club for the BIGGER teams around you.. Lennon will leave in the summer and Barbie will go to a bigger european club to gain CL football... 3 weeks and your season is over... still there is always in the intertoto !
PUREGOLD
in terms of history just bieng in a competition doesnt mean sh!!t because winners go on trophies no one else. hence domestically arsenal are a bigger team then spurs, whislt on a european front spurs are bigger because they have more european trophies, it is just that simple, its not the fans, its not how rich an owner is or how many tickets you sell at a quid, its all about trophies.
spursinbarca
hey puregold tell me this thru all your adventures in the CL apart from tv money lining the directores pockets.....what exactly have the fans been able to celebrate....nothing i assume, i know many arsenal fans that paid hundreds last year for their travels all to end in tears, spurs at the moment cant qualify for it, but if im honest we are not ready for champions league because we are not capable of beating teams like barca, oooops niether are you come to think of it.
spursinbarca
U know optimism is good.but lets not get deluded...gr8 u guys must hav won european trophies long back...but u hav NEVER QUALIFIED FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE...WAT CRAP ARE U GIVING US THAT UR GONNA WIN IT..... we went till the final and lost to barca jus bcuz lady luck had put on the wrong shirt....and winning the CL(ya like thats gonna happen) alone will not make uguys a bigger club than ours.........u hav prove it on the pitch we hav until very recently dominated eng football along with the mancs and wi;lld do so next year allu can hope for is a uefa cup spot thats ur realistic target admit it...... and wat makes u a gr8 cup team wat hav u won in the last few years not even the carling cup. So come back after u win something. A Powerspur i really feel sorry for u
karley
the champions league is the icing on the cake for us,but i would take the premier league every time over the CL,i mean do you honestly think nottingham forest are in a better position than us because they won the european cup twice,i dont think so,a true mark of a team is to be consistantly at the top end of things,even winning it,can you say that about your team.But as you can see, and this is a big BUT you have wasted your time in the PL by not winning it,you had many many chance,played in it year after year after year,and have absolutely nothing to show for it,you may have won one more european cup than us,a long time ago,but you have to be in it to win it,and we have lost more finals than you have won,so its only a matter of time before we win one again,im also sure if the cup winners cup was still around the amount of times we have won the fa cup we would have picked up at least one of them,but i digress,what im trying to say is you dont have a chance of winning the PL,you dont even have a chance of reaching a top4 place,which means you will never ever qualify for the CL,and even by some miracle you do, you will never get anywhere near a final let alone win it,keep taking those happy pills
fran merida
lol, win the CL.Ahahahha, they're struggling in the Uefa cup.Almost lost to a mid table portuguese club.And are thinking about CL, oh dear oh dear.
k_chelski
Puregold, Berbatov has stated publically that he will honour is contract but is delighted the team is happy to give him a better deal and is staying. Lennon has just signed a long term contract, King has just signed a long term contract as has Dawson. Whilst your comments are humourous could you please provide any evidence of why they will not be with us next season unless we choose to sell them all for £80m+ ... unless I misunderstand the rules of football, we still have a season .. please provide the evidence that it is over in 3 weeks ... unlike you lot we are not a load of travellers roaming around London - the club has always stated we need a bigger ground, but are committed to tradition and have sought all means to remain at WHL - because of planning/transport issues this was always going to take longer. That is the actual reason not the pathetically fictious one you contrive to come up with
Sir_Harry
whats the use you've been consistently at the top but have nothing to show for it in europe? even forest are better than you. infact they are two times better than you because they won it twice. the big four in england are liverpool, manu, forest and villa.I know we dont deserve to be there but the same can be said of you gooners and the russian brigade in london.
powerspur
Tell me the top clubs this century.
k_chelski
of this century^*
k_chelski
Wouldn't it make more sense if the 'top tickets' were £40 at the Lane, and the restricted view were £71. Who wants to watch that second rate bunch of under-achieving Middlesex swamp-dwellers who mistakenly believe it could be their year if it ends with a one. Get this boys, you only ever won a handful of trophies when the year STARTED with a one, and nothing sice. Good word, nothing, it sums you up....see ya.
northwilts
puregold, ever try comedy, because you make the funniest jokes. lenny and berbi are going nowhere. infact they will be at spurs next season, firing us to CL footy at your expense. you will end up in eufa where you will lose in the final to another dutch team. you can then add the memories of losing another final to all your other fond memories of losing finals. in 30 years time you will look back fondly at all your years of losing finals in europe but will comfort yourself with being crowned PL champions on the odd occasion. In those memories you better hope that spurs haven't won the CL at least once, otherwise you will have no choice but to concede that they were the better club.
powerspur
Come on, nobody (spuds) are gonna answer my question?What are the top 5 clubs of this century?
k_chelski
powerspur - ur first post made me laugh. thank you for that :). every fan needs to have confidence in their side, but here you are, gloating abt spurs WINNING a competition they havent qualified in a while !!
prits
powerspur - in 30 yrs time, trust me, we will have a LOT more to look back on, and with pride, than you lot ever will !! As to us hoping that you lot will never win the CL, lets just say its more of a belief :).
prits
Fran meridia, you make me laugh with your dum witted questions. OF COURSE forest are better than you, you tw*t!!!!!!! They have won it twice, in more difficult circumstances when it was still the european cup and you had to win your league to qualify.You have consistently been at the top of things but have NOTHING!!!!!!!!!! to show for it!!!!! You HAVE to WIN it I'm afraid, in order to be better than forest (or villa for that matter). and you have never won it. when are you gooners gonna get it? but I will keep explaining until you do. sigh....
powerspur
how long do i have to wait?No spud want to answer?Where's your cojones, spuddies?
k_chelski
yes, powerspur, keep explaining to us poor gooners why we cant win the CL, from a fan whose club cant even qualify for it !! I'm sure everyone here is all ears.
prits
Yes people forget in the good old day before there was a league to win, if you lost one match you were out. No lose one draw one and scrape through. I think Villa will be having a little GOLD STAR on their new club crest......
col8
prits, I haven't been gloating about spurs winning anything. let me tell you what I said and please listen good so that you and your chums dont miss quote me again: I said that arsenal have been trying for donkeys of years to win the CL and have failed (miserably I hasten to add). Now this is the tricky part so listen good; spurs might come along in the near future and finish top 4 and thereby qualify for CL. spurs might then, as villa did 20 odd years ago, have a great run (maybe tinged with a generous dosage of luck) and find themselves in the final, and against all odds, as firm underdogs and at their first attempt might I add, surprise everyone, including 60 000 utterly dumbstruck gooners, and go on to win it (with a last minute goal scored by the man they call KEANO!!!!! KEANO!!!!!). I then said if we should win the CL like I just described, then we will be better than arsenal, provided they haven’t won it yet at that point in time. that is all I said and if that is so difficult to understand then I am thankful for being a spurs fan because it seems that all the years arsenal have spent chasing this pipe dream of winning CL has made their fans disillusional and unable to think straight.
powerspur
how long will i have to wait?No spud want to answer?Where's your cojones, spuddies?
k_chelski
The hallmark of great teams is how many league titles they have won EVERYBODY with half a football brain knows this. 2 titles in their whole pathetic history, 13 for The Arsenal. 38 games to prove you are the best in league the quality of the premiership is what its all about. This powerspur guy is clearly deluded please ignore him, he cant be saved, his jealousy of Arsenal has taken control of him he thinks Villa and Forest are bigger than Arsenal and in stating this say sp*rs are worse than those clubs aswell (cut of his noise to spite his gollum twisted face). Hatred and envy has destroyed his soul.

err powerspur, u've basically repeated repeated ur earlier post. I'm not stupid, u know (though u seem to disagree), i understood what u said the 1st time. tell me, doesnt it seem just a wee bit early to talk of situations where spurs might actually WIN the CL? Surely, once you've QUALIFIED for it, u can talk abt it. till that, its just a dream. OK - so in my original post, I will replace the word 'gloating' with 'dreaming'. happy? the point of my post still remains.
prits
How many times do i have to type?Honestly...WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 CLUBS OF THIS CENTURY?Can any spud please tell me?
k_chelski
lol iceman - my apologies mate. I didnt see ur post - will ignore powerspur from now. what was i thinking - that i'd convince a spud with logic ??!! I think all that beer is ******** with my brain :).
prits
Kevin are u talking premiership or Europe?
iceman10
British clubs.
k_chelski
You wouldnt talk to one of those deluded tramps with a sandwich board telling us the world is gonna end 2moro and powerspur is on that level!
iceman10
United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal reserves!
iceman10
British, sorry! Celtic would be in there.
iceman10
where would spuds be this century?
k_chelski
Hmm, i think it could be newcastle.
k_chelski
What do you mean where would spuds be this century? I thought you wanted to talk about BIG clubs, not Orient's rivals.
northwilts
lol, they would be 9th or 8th.That shows them, they're not any better than last century, still the same old crap.
k_chelski
Spurs would be below Newcastle, blackburn, Middlesborough, Bolton, Rangers, Everton. I rate the achievements of Leicester under Martin o'neil (2 carling cups) higher, I rate Readings premiership performance this season as better than anything sp*rs have achieved since the premiership came to be. Everytime premirship years comes on SKY in whatever season sp*rs are s*@t. Their greatest season was last year, Ipswich were 5th in season 00-01. Pound for pound they are the worst club in premiership history, no club has spent so much to achieve so little and that is FACT. Then you have their fans, the majority deluded, a minority who attack you in packs when you visit their stadium (I use the word stadium loosely) and who last week tried to smash up west London with baseball bats and planks of wood with nails hammered through them. Heres hoping that they sod off to the olympic stadium in 2012.
iceman10
What dictates how long a player stays at a club Sir Harry is the player, not a contract. When Lennon, King and Berbatov decide that they want Champions League football, they'll request a transfer, your board of course will reject it, so they put in half hearted performances for the rest of the season. That's the scenario. The likely outcome is that your club will have to accept the highest bid (rather than have deadwood on the wage bill) which will be nowhere near the 80million you suggested, and hope that with the money they receive, they'll be able to buy in a replacement who settles in immediately. Although the UEFA Cup isn't the greatest competition in the world, as you get closer and closer to the final, more and more of Europe's bigger clubs, Champions League clubs, will be watching your players very closely, looking for some useful squad additions. I beleive that this is why you'll be losing your better players pretty shortly. Beware, Ryan Giggs is not getting any younger, and seeing as Ronaldo can easily be shifted to the left, don't be surprised if another English player joins up with Carrick in the summer.
flv
Good point flv. How long is Reyes contract? How long was Chimbondas contract at Wigan?
iceman10
Exactly Iceman, exactly!
flv
Ha ha,just loving all the bitter&twisted b@llock's all you sad old gooneretts are spewing.Get over it,your season was over at the beginning of MARCH! Iceman10 you seem to have a problem with the Tottenhamassive,don't know why,there just a bunch of happy-go-lucky miss under-stood supporters.
HATEtheGOONS
Just because you have scumbag players who constantly link themselves with other teams, don't tar our players with the same scumbag brush. Unlike Viera squealing to leave, or Reyes sqealing to leave or Henry dithering until the last moment, Berbs, Lennon, King, Dawson are all on long term deals. Carrick was moved on because we got offered a silly price. When a player gets down to the last two years of his contract then you need to consider the possibility they could choose to buy out their contracts when making a decision. Lennon is signed through 2011 .. if Man U want to offer £30m then fine but if they don't we simply don't need to consider it. The idea of players providing half hearted performances to get a transfer shows how very little you know about football. Who wants to sign a player who might turn on their own team ... oh, of course you did with Gallas
Sir_Harry
Yeah Gallas has put in some real half hearted performances. shows how much YOU know about football.
iceman10
Players who turn on their own team hmmmmm....Chimbonda playing the final game at Highbury with a transfer request stuck down his sock! Hmmmmm Defoe handing in a transfer request the day after West Ham got relegated. You really dont know what your talking about do you?
iceman10
rumour was he was going to at Chelsea to get a transfer ... you might be attracted to players like that ... until he fancies playing for Milan, Real Madrid or Juventus. Again any single quote from a Spurs player listed saying he wants to reconsider his position at WHL at the end of the season?
Sir_Harry
Your are embarrasing yourself. Explain why you signed Defoe and Chimbonda if no teams want to buy players who turn on their teams. Get us some links from this time last year quoting Carrick stating he wanted to leave.
iceman10
Carrick moved on because you got offered a silly price! Have you replaced him with anything better for your 18m? Your league position says.......no! The idea that you think that a contract controls a player shows how much you know about the world! Henry may have dithered but he signed, Campbell may have dithered, oh sorry, he signed for us also didn't he? You'll get 20m tops for Lennon but how are you going to spend it?It's okay to say it'll be fine, we'll just go and buy another Berbatov, but how many poor signings did you have to make before you got lucky with that one, and the jury is still out as far as he's concerned too. If your long term aim is to break into the top four, your so called super striker has to score goals against the top four, and you have to start recording wins against the top four on a regular basis. The way things are, you might snatch a win or two every 10 games or so, but that's about it and time is ticking. If you don't secure Champions League by May 2007 or at the very most secure a serious top 4 challenge by January 1st 2008, your rebuilding will have to start all over again. I can't beleive I'm getting called bitter and twisted by a guy who calls himself, 'Hate The Goons'. How sweet!
flv
The way things are, you might snatch a win or two every 10 games or so, *against each of the top 4*
flv
If you don't secure Champions League by May 2007 or at the very most secure a serious top 4 challenge by January 1st 2008 *And if you want to take the worse case scenario, you can replace the years 2007 & 2008, with 2006 & 2007*
flv
well i have found my comic relief tonight :D some of the stuff the spuddies have come out with is comdy gold.
ExRox
flv, Carrick was sold for £18m and the funds were used against the cost of Berbatov and Zokora signed for £10.9m and £8.2m respectively. After settling in and with the club playing more games we are in a slightly worse league position but in a much stronger position in two cups .. for the cost of £1.1m. In addition the club were aware that we had Huddlestone who many in the game think will be a more dominant and better long term bet than Carrick. You may not have noticed but over the last couple of years with a different management structure, we have actually made fewer 'duff' purchases and those we have made we have still be able to move on for a minimal loss. As it stands we have not even touched the funds we have got from Mansion and Puma. Whilst no one claims we are on a par with the Top4 on average our performances show that we are closing the gap. There is no reason to suggest that with 2 or 3 astute purchases this summer, that gap won't have closed even further. Anybody too arrogant or stupid to think otherwise has s**t on their ears from having their head stuck up their own a**e. And nobody has yet been able to explain how you managed to spend £390m building a stadium that wasn't even an original design?
Sir_Harry
thats telling them sir harry. I am sitting here laughing myself into a pulp listening to this utter pile of cr*p from these ar*eh*le comedians. guys, honestly, where do you come up with it all? we know you are jealous, but that is understandable. we are no longer the team that used to roll over and get trampled on and this scares you. we are now a respectable team with a great manager who does not mince his words and a team full of players that other top clubs desire. get it through you thick skulls: "nobody, but nobody is leaving spurs"...and that my dear gooners, is a bankable fact. do not, and I repeat, do not waste your time trying to instigate transfers for any of our players because it will not happen. but thanks for sharing your fears with us. thanks for showing that you rate our players. now imagine this: all our top players WILL still be here next season PLUS some new GREAT signings to boost our team into the MONSTER of a spurs side that will set the cat amongst the top 4 pigeons. And chelski fans (kevin, right?), you better jump in here and help the gooners to fight this argument because I think they gonna need it!!!!!!! He…he…he….
powerspur
"a team full of players that other top clubs desire" u moron other temas desire our players cuz they are world class unlike ur team. Fine bebatov has had a descent run for a fw games that proves nothing......and manutd having jus 2 strikers u never never know that berbie wont do a carrick.seriously u think he'd rather play for u than man utd. U know power spur wat hav we to be jealous of u.......u r the most delusioned person i hav come across u win a few game(that too bya hair) and ur here gloating about how the future is bright. c'mon even ur mates must be embarrased. And temme one 'great signing' u can think of that will come to ur team... man i feel really sorry for u power spur.....i really do
karley
A response powerspur?
karley
Powespur, i ain't helping no one..My point is, ,my team , is one of the greatest this century, whilst your team is average, just like last century.Do you see a pattern here? Helping spuds or gooners, is like helping the beelzebub , iblis, or lucifer.
k_chelski
How you can possibly say that you've closed the gap on the top four, when this time last season you were actually in the top 4 is beyond all logic and reason. Look at the league table! Just take a look at it! Or do you guys have your own league table with only Spurs in it where you win an imaginary league championship medal every season. And as for stronger in the cups this season, you had one tough draw in the Carling Cup and out you went, Chelsea has been the first real challenge that you have had in the FA Cup and that has yet to be negotiated, and it's only now you've come up against a decent team in the Uefa Cup. How can you possibly measure your progress on your Cup runs. I mean realistically, all you've done this season is beat the equivillent of Grimsby and Leicester City, and surely you should be doing that anyway? Before you mention anything, I realise that you beat Fulham away in the last round of the FA Cup, but if your team is as great as you think they are, they should be doing that more often than not anyway. Powerspur, Campbell was never going to leave, Carrick was never going to leave. And don't kid yourself, you are still the team that rolls over and gets trampled on, only nowadays we can't be arsed sending our first team over to do it, we send our kids instead! Next season we'll send Faye White and the girls over to play you just to even things up a little. Who cares about the £390m unoriginal stadium design, the fact is we have a state of the art stadium that will attract many great players to our club. I don't know what you pointed that out for anyway,I mean all that's missing from your stadium is a few strips of sandpaper and a swan vestas label.

Ifyou cant answer the questions we ask you SH you may as well go away. £390 million for a stadium in the middle of north London is about the correct price unless you're the FA. How much is your dump worth? You have cut the gap on the top 4??? Puzzling seen as this time last year you were 4th and now ur 13 points adrift of 4th and you criticize our maths? Cup runs as evidence of progression??? Remember millwall have played in an FA cup final more recently than you and Middlesborough a UEFA cup final so you had better find another argument there. You have had to negotiate replays against lower division teams on numerous occasions and been taken to extra time at home so i dont see the improvement. You have gone backwards this year and if you came on to this site and told us you sometimes you have to go back to go forward we might respect your view to tell us you have improved is just foolish and embarrasing.

flv- your insecurities are shining right through your writing my mate!!!!!!! dont worry about carrick, he is gone, he wanted to go, and we we wanted him to go, gorrit? how could we replace him with anything better if the MIGHTY MANU couldn't get better and decided that he was the ultimate. what we did get however, was someone DIFFERENT, but who needed time to settle in, just like carrick did when he first came to spurs. and now that he is settled in, we have started to kick on after a slow start. I like the way you say "...you'll get 20 million tops for lennon..." are you perhaps a soothsayer by trade? do you see into the future? how do YOU know these things? Since you are busy gazing into the future, can you see kings arms raised above his head holding onto a big trophy? is that a "yes" I heard you say? Now tell me, is it the PL title or the CL trophy? what? you say it's not the PL but you dont know if it is the CL because your team has never won it and therefore you dont know what it looks like? ag, shame, I sympathise with you!!! all those years in the CL and nothing to show for it, only a scumbell's goal in the final to cheer you up, and to think we gave him to you for nothing!!! so besides spurs helping you along, you still weren’t good enough to win it.
powerspur
karley- you don’t feel sorry for me, you feel extremely sorry for yourself because you are being threatened by the rise of the mighty spurs. Your world of comfort has been shaken by the sheer quality of our current breed of players and you and all other gooners are hoping that they get enticed away by so called "bigger" clubs so that we will slump backwards after losing our top players. You are so wasting my time with this pathetic line of thought after I went to great lengths to explain why we will not lose our best players. I already explained all this to the other moronic goners and now a new one pops up and ask the same dumb question; and then you have the audacity to beg for my response. Seeing that you are quite new at posting on the major sites, I suggest you practice on less strenuous sites like spammers and other bottom feeders before you come on here to take on the big boys because time wasting is a serious offence which I don’t have time for. Come up with genuine arguments you moron and maybe I will take you seriously. Before posting your reply, remember that you need a fresh angle and anything remotely mentioning that spurs will lose it’s best players to other clubs will not be considered an argument. Understand dumbo?
powerspur
iceman- I'll tell you what's embarrasing: thinking you are one of the worlds top clubs but then getting knocked out of major competitions like the FA cup and CL by small teams like blackburn and PSV. THAT is embarrasing. If anyone has gone backwards, its the gooners; last season played in the CL final, this year got knocked out in the last 16. now THAT is a team in decline and going backwards. whats it gonna be next season? first round exit? The season after that, it will be wafer cup without a question!!!
powerspur
put down your sandwich board and leave powerspur, nobody is interested.
iceman10
powerspur your level of knowledge about football is equal to the level of your club - second rate! The rise of the mighty sp*rs?! Two weeks ago I visited your forum and it was doom and gloom "Sack Jol", "Robbo is $hit" (he is, really) "Zokora is a mercenary", Tainio is this Defoe is that (and a Gooner, too) and all of a sudden you are winning the Champions League, the FA Cup. As far as our 'embarassing' season goes, we are better in all departments except the Champions League - improved in all domestic competitions. A blind, ignorant dumb**** like you could remember that last year the Mancs were out of CL in the GROUP PHASE as 4th placed. Look at where they are now. Arsenal can only get better. You are playing out of your skin and progressing in the mighty UEFA cup by getting a bye, and beating Europe's 3rd and 4th rate teams whose names most of you spuddies cannot pronounce. Can't fill your stadium for your 'big' European games. Every night each spud lights a candle praying that Berbatov does not get injured, or that Lennon does not **** off next year to play Champions League football. However, it is good that you are still being optimists after almost half a century of waiting. The Champions League trophy SURELY has your name on it. You just need to qualify for it. Yeah, right.
G4L
G4L- why is a gooner's argument always based on the fact that a spurs player will leave our mighty club? do you have no extra brain cells available to think up better things to say? you are wasting my time. bye bye.
powerspur
I want to leave but you keep on replying, if thats not interest then I dunno what is.
powerspur
why? because your captain left you to WIN TROPHIES not so long ago. Because your most influential midfielder did so last year and he looks as if he's going to get a medal. By failing to see further than that you have proved exactly what I said in the 1st sentence: you know $hit about football. Enjoy your season as you are on the up again. Last year -2 points, this year -16 points. that can only be improvement in your deluded heads (no brain cells whatsoever).
G4L
go comfort yourself and light that candle I mentioned before. The last time those 2 were taken off from a game you let in 2 goals against the chavs. If it were up to me - I'd give fat jol a 10 year contract - surely the man to lead you to greater things - if you keep improving with -16 pts every year, in a couple you will be where you belong - the Championship.
G4L
Yes powerspur, when I look into the future, I can see a certain Ledley King lifting a trophy, but he's not wearing Spurs colours I'm afraid! In fact he is so annoyed by the fact that Spurs have become a parody of themselves by playing in Bungle's finger brown, that he is going to pretend to be injured until somebody comes along with a shiny sixpence to transfer him away from his misery at the matchbox. Yeah, yeah, far fetched I know, but you started it by claiming Spurs were gonna win a premiership or a Champions League medal in the next few years.
flv
Power spur fine let us consider a situation where by u retain berbie and lennon where else is the quality gonna come from.......ur on the up compared to hum?west ham.........u jus managed to scarpe thru to the next rounds ...and ur here tellin us ur gonna win it.......jus remember if u dont............u spuddies will hav no clue wat hit u.........first think about qualifying for the champ league then we'll think about winning it......
karley
funny that, no1 goes to our games, yet we sell out every league fixture going... the reason as we are all fully aware of that WHL wasnt full for the UEFA Cup tie against SC Braga, was the disgusting price tag for the game. The entire premiership is used to being ripped off week in/week out, but the fact that regular tickets, for a UEFA Cup (Not top dog Champions League) were going for £61 each and i for one, refuse to pay that for a second leg tie in Europe's second teir of European football! i was clearly not alone here and until the board stop trying to rip us off, people won't go. No disrespect meant to Braga, but they aren't exactly the biggest name in European football, therefore, many people struggled to understand why it qualifies as a category A game? Arsenal have done things the correct way and even with the Beautiful stadium you have now got (and it is fantastic) they are offering top level football and opposition for a reasonable price. Take note Comolli and look at how they do things here at Arsenal. you dont know how much this pains me to say this as a spurs fan!
ExiL
However you need to take that into account there. Steve Bould's Arsenal youth team vs Man Utd's youth team; the ticket prices arent exactly going to be extortionate now are they? i was down at canvey in august watching the Canvey island full team play the Spurs XI and there were thousands of people there. their ground was full for the first time in years and it was because Spurs' kids (who beat Arsenal's kids comfortably last night) were there and therefore as it was a nothing-kind-of-game, the ticket prices were so cheap, there were entire families turning out and this proves my point about what a load of rubbish this article is really... it's down to cost and i can guarantee the majority of people there were not reguars in attencance at the emirates and were simply there for a nice, cheap evening out with the family. dont flatter yourselves arsenal... if you had charged standard premiership league game prices for the youth team game, you wouldnt have had the attendance you had.
ExiL
karley - ".....no clue what hit us"? do you mean we gonna lose our best players? Same old argument from you after I asked you nicely to look at a different angle. do you think our game is based only on the efforts of berba and lenny? sure they give us an extra dimension when they are in the team, just like henry and van persie for you guys, but we can play without them you know, although I don’t expect you to know because you haven't watched us lately, now have you? Where is our quality gonna come from? We have atleast 6 players that will make your starting eleven: robbo, king, chimbonda, jenas, lennon and berbatov. Beside these there are a plethora of others on par with the best that you have (dawson, zokora, huddlestone, malbranque, defoe, keane, to name but a few). You only have 3 that will make our team: henry, fabregas and gallas. Even if we dont retain lenny, berba and whoever else wants to leave, there is a backbone of quality that will carry the club to the levels that we require. We will not roll over and crumble if we sell players although this is what all gooners are hoping will happen and hence you pre-occupation with the idea of losing our players to clubs like yourself. You see karley, we have been improving at a rate where our team building is nearing completion, and it is expected that we will be adding the final pieces of the jigsaw this coming summer, hence the very high expectations from everyone associated with our club. so players can leave and try to make a success elsewhere, but really, the management knows it, the players knows it and the fans knows it, the LANE is THE place to be. And now YOU know it.
powerspur
power spur u moron wen i meant u wudnt know wat hit u we meant the gooners hu are gonna bobard u and force u to eat ur words(if u dont win the uefa cup or the fa cup).......and still u havent answered my q hum ........only henry, faband gallas will make ur team ? Ur tellin me that fatman robinson is better than jens......ur tellin me dawson is better than kolo toure........ur tellin me that yp lee is better than clichy...i dont even know hu ur rb is but im darn sure he aint better than eboue....... AL has got pace .......he is promising so are our wingers hleb and rosicky i'd never swap ne of them for lenny.hu is by far ur best player........Dont even get me started on huddle50ston/zokora being better than gibbers......and please van persie is worth ten keanes and defoes.....so dont kid urself.....to win the cl u need world class players in their prime.....except king(and dats pushing it) i cant think of ne other players in ur squad hu are world class.....so we gooners neednt even bother about u spuddies losing ur players cuz next season witha little luck the PL is ours....
karley
you just lost to everton karley. EVERTON!!!!! and you want to win PL next year? fat chance mate. I believe we stuffed your under 18's 3-0!!!!! ha ha ha. the mighty gooner youngsters getting stuffed by a team of spuds!!!!! you in no position to be dictating your cr*p to me. are you sure you not crying in your room like a baby. I read somewhere your ambition was to take second spot behind manu but the way you going you better watch out that we dont snatch 4th spot from you!!!! ha ha ha. you gooners are become a joke. why dont you swallow your pride and take back reyes. he is the only one that can save your sorry team.although that might not be so easy because didn't he publicly announce that he doesn't want to play for your hapless team again? ha ha ha
powerspur
year, they all have pace but other than that they haven't got much else, otherwise you wouldn't be in the sorry position that you now find yourself. fatman robinson scored a beauty goal yesterday (you should try and watch it, it was truly magnificent (better than any of henry's goals I hasten to add), the second long distance goal of his career, he is still englands no.1 and he is far younger than that german maniac of yours. If you are english you should atleast try and support your countrymen instead of insulting them.dawson and toure are on par so I will keep daws in my team. same goes for lee and clichy, hleb and ghaly, rosicky and steed. lenny will walk the manu team, so you are just being sour to say he wont get into your team, the guy is absolutely brilliant!!!! remember that with one sweep he ousted both beckham and SWP's from the england team. hudd or zoko is on par with gilberto or any of your CM's and that goes for tainio also. van persie's goal ratio suggests that both defoe and keane is on par with him. ATM I am over the moon, so nothing you say can change things. we had a crap start but are finishing well. I dont know what start you lot had but I do know you are finishing crap!!!!!! and that you cannot argue about, can you?
powerspur
Should've known powerspur would be here after the Everton result! There's another shirt for you to wear along with you Barcelona, Chelsea, Galatasary and PSV ones. Maybe one day you'll be able to wear your Tottenham one again eh? 2074 maybe? Robinson's goal better than any of Henry's, haha! That lazy space hopper just kicked a 75 yard ball downfield, Henry ran from outside our own penalty area, skipped past your entire bunch of overpaid statues just to smack it low into the corner, on another wonderful day at Highbury. Of course, your selective memory wouldn't remember that. Before you mention anything else, go and grab you Zaragoza shirt from your wardrobe and tell us all about Nayim, oh please?
flv
flv can u believe the comparisons he is makin ..... Dawson and kolo on par u hav go to be kidding me.............wat of ghaly and tainio has proven that they are o par with hleb and rosicky...wat world do u live in.....i dont think neother spud is as stupid as this one and zokora and huddlestone being on par with gibbers jus goes to show the very minute knowledge u hav of football.......... .......................tell u wat we'll ask a neutral person say k_chelski to rate both our teams then we can strap u up in a strait jacket and send u to mental asylum........wat say powerspur

Karley, don't disturb him right now, he's having his electric shock treatments, whilst watching a re-run of the 1988 Littlewoods Cup final in his Luton Town shirt of course 8-)
flv
flv/karley - I doubt very much you should be making any decisions right now, you sound a bit emotional and stressed out. must be all the losses you are having to deal with. what say you , you take it easy for a while. just accept that now is not such a good time to be defending your hapless bunch, I mean you do have a fairly valid excuse that none of your regular strikers are available. so call it a night and sleep it off. tomorrow things will be much better and maybe Ade will be pack to soften the thrashings that pool and chafski is going to hand out to you!!!!!
powerspur
karley- never mind asking that moron kchelski for his "neutral" opinion, he is just as paranoid and jealous as you so he will always agree with the gooners if it has anything to do with spurs. just accept what I'm telling you, I've been following soccer long long before you were born.

Alright, this season : Arsenal once again lost any chance of winning silverware.Their excuse is , they have a team for the future, even thought tomorrow never comes.2 straight seasons titleless, that hurts them alot because they have a history of winning at least one silverware each season.In a near future, i could see arsenal winning a couple of Fa cups , and even an champions league,I can't , however, see them winning the epl, since chelsea, liverpool, and w@nk united, are heavily invested.Now Tottenham, fans always brag about being better than us, even thought they know it's not true.In 2 or 3 years i could see them regularly in the uefa cup, even having a chance of winning it.Overall , Arsenal is better than tottenham, proving both in direct and indirectly.Better in the league, and defeated them in the carling cup.So, are you girls done?

flv- your comments about other teams jerseys are getting a bit boring. I do not pre occupy myself with what the arsenal get up to . I am spurs through and through and am only here to defend my club when people like you start spreading false information about us.

Powerspur, when you call football , soccer, it means you really doesn't know much about it.Read it, you'll see nothing but the truth.

kchelski- so by your reasoning, if we beat you in the cup tomorrow and draw or win in the league game at the bridge, we will be better than you? And if we thrash the gunners in our league game at the lane - we will be better than them also? because the league game at the emirates doesn't count because we lost to two laughable penalty decisions and an offside goal. he he he
powerspur
If you get more points than us at the end of the epl, beat us tomorrow, draw or win at the bridge, would there be any reason not to be better?
k_chelski
Sorry to have bored you powerspur! Never mind, in a couple of weeks time you'll be jumping up and down and singing along in Anfields Kop end, so you've got lots to look forward to haven't you?
flv
U know powerspur that our team man to man is way better tha urs ...the bets u can hope 4 is uefa cup.........And k_chelski next season the title is b/w arsenal and manutd.......the signs are that jose is going byebye and takin lump-ard with him and if they leave JT and te gang are gonna follow and then the season sfter that Roman.........liverpool will take atlaest a season or two to settle even if the big names come in....... i think all the games we've lost this season were down to us having a no. of players injured.come next season and a fully fit squad the PL is ours
