I Don't Care About Arsenal

I don't care about Arsenal, I couldn't care less!

Who gives a crap that they are under achieving at the moment? Does it matter that the form of the team resembles that of a team in the relegation zone?

I woke up this morning with a spring in my step, not jealous at all that Liverpool easily brushed aside a team who knocked us out of a second rate mickey mouse competition, and will go on to play in an exciting Champions League semi final.

I wouldn't give a second thought about Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie & Theo Walcott. It matters little to me that they are sat on the sidelines for the rest of the season, neither does it matter that Arsenal's injury list has been longer than a Tottenham supporters rap sheet.

It doesn't play on my mind for one second that every single one of our main rivals still has something to play for while we spend the rest of the season hoping for the capitulation of their teams just to ease our pain.

I hate football, it doesn't have a bearing on my everyday life, I rarely think about the game, the tactics, what match is next, it doesn't bother me.

Arsenal aren't a big part of my life. They're not in my soul. It doesn't hurt me when things don't go their way.

It's just a game.

I don't care.

NB: If the above statement were true I'd be in a much better mood than I am this morning, I wouldn't be sat wondering what could have been, and it wouldn't have taken me 20 minutes just to get out of bed.

Come on Arsenal, ease my pain.

Weird, I've had that Marvin Gaye song in my head all day, just the same words repeating themselves over and over, "oh brother, brother, brother, brother, said there's far too many of us crying." Strangely apt.
Little Dutch
The writer is correct. The exact opposite of what he has written is true. While I don't begrudge Liverpool their success last night (I think they are a great club with great fans), that they brushed PSV aside so easily just made me feel even worse. They did exactly what we should have done in that first leg - made our obvious superiority count. We can only hope that the depth of this disappointment this season provides the fuel for our motivation for the coming seasons.
Easy my pain indeed !! Hopefully, a little of that will be eased, come saturday.
There is no way PSV should have beaten us, I just feel so **** today. Still rough with the smooth. I still love my club and always will.
Let me ease your pain .... Guys """St Hotspur day commeth upon thee!!""" The deed will be done
You know what cusop, that does make me feel better. St. Totteridge day is not that far away. It also reminds us that there are those much worse off in the world. How's tinkerbell there dingle?
Little Dutch
Come on Arsenal. We will be back...KEEP THE FAITH. PSV are a poor team and we lost it in the first leg, no good crying over spilt milk. The Spuds are Cr*p and always will be, so something to smile about.
thanks cusop, that did make me feel better!! the utter rubbish from delusional spuds always puts a smile on my face:).
I was awake from 3am to 6am this morning thinking and worrying about Arsenal. I really wish I didn't care that much. my wife asked me what I was thinking about but she guessed after one guess. I have got problems.
I cant belive that we got beaten by such a secound class team as PSV and seeing liverpool brush them aside so easily yesterday makes me hurt even more. We could have beaten them so easily in the first or secound leg. I just wish that we could sort out our shooting and be able to finish games off like we used to. And then we can start playin the really stylish football like we are all used to watchin. Even thou saying that the CL has to go to liverpool again this season i couldnt handle the scummy blues or united doing the treble i dont know about u lot......
Here's a crumb of comfort,the PSV team last nite were basically the reserve's,no Alex or Kone and a host of others.Liverpool were lucky.Anyway at least you can look forward to St Totteridge day,have you not seen your run in!? :)
Its juat annoying that theres nothing to look forward too, if united or chelsea win 3 trophies it'll make it a whole load worse, I hope only United win prem, a non-english teams win the Champions league and watford win the FA Cup.
remind me of the outcome of the totteringhams day poll? think you may have got it wrong guys.

liverpool happened to meet PSV when they are on their best form of the season while PSV were not playing well and had injuries. in contrast when we played PSV they had they key men there and lets face it Koeman out thought us. we also had several key injuries and were off the back of some sapping defeats. I dont think the comparisons between us and Liverpool on this basis are that fair.
If we lose this weekend it will kill Easter for me.......CMON ARSENAL.
lose? not a chance.
I like Liverpool, if any team were gonna do us and then a team we easily should of beat by 3 goals both times i'm glad it was them. Much better than it being Chelsea or Man U. And we all know Sevilla are gonna ***** tottenscum up anyways. How strange it will be cheering for Kanoute
Ozi Gooner
I will personally be surprised if you place in the top four. With moral as low as it is in both your dressing room and stands there is not much that even Paul Mckenna could do about it. I suggest you start supporting a new team - but please not Tottenham, I would think that Chelsea would be a good bet for you guys as they are south of the river like exactly where you came from when you bought your way into the football leagues top flight. Havingh said that the buying of honours bit in common should set you in good stead with their 'growing fan base'. Laughable.
how can u be cheering, when none of you watch the "waffa" cup as you call it?
Jacky B
"lose? not a chance." Your words are marked G4L
Jacky B
Jacky B - It is surprisingly silent over in this neck of the woods.......I would have at least expected a mindless retort or two from one of these neanderthals. Could it be that they are all so manic depressed about the poor state of their club that they can't even rebut a couple of humble tottenham fans.
i like sevilla, always have, i will be watching. I would be watching if you were playing atletico too, like them also, and i hate tottenham. good enough reason to watch me thinks jacky
Ozi Gooner
bullers, you will be humbled soon enough, that my friend we can all be sure of, even if not tommorow then saturday mate. History shall repeat, its the circle of life
Ozi Gooner
We have already taken three points off the chelski filth this season and frankly speaking I will be happy with one point from that tie. You obviously were not watching the last time we played them at the bridge, had berbs and lennon not had to leave the pitch we would have won the game and thats all without our most key player ledley. Who by the way should be back in the centre of defense for your little visit to the lane. Just one more thing OZI - you don't sound that confident fo Seville's win tmw mate do you - humbled if not tmw then saturday?????? Put your money on spurs you cheating, losing, frenching, felching immigrants.
JackyB, I reiterate NOT A CHANCE. And I will quote one of my favourite NBA characters Rasheed Wallace of the Pistons: "I guarantee it."
I'm with the article-writer on this one... and I'm off to support a proper team - like the MIGHTY Tottenham Hotspur FC!!!
bullers will you also be surprised to find out that your team will not play in the CL next year (AGAIN)?if it is manic depression here, than must be free-halucinogen-for-all at the lane. enjoy while it lasts.
Poor state of our club? The one that hasn't lost to you in eight years? The one whose kids gave you a thorough beating in a semi final? The ones who won the league on your ground less than three years ago? And then you call us neanderthals, yet utter racist drivel in the same breath? Did it not occur to you that you will win nothing as usual this year, and currently sit 7 pts below us (we have a game in hand), yet you think this is the ideal time to give some Arsenal fans some stick. You know why that is? Because you know this is as good as it gets for you, the fact that you are only having a marginally poorer season than we are is reason enough for you to dish it out. That's priceless, a bit like taunting a billionnaire with a loaf of bread. Back to the asylum little boy, you're punching well above your weight here. Good try though little lad, keep on plugging away there soldier.
Little Dutch
Well done. However it is ill advised to jump on the spurs train to glory as you have a somewhat chequered history of former football teams. May I make a polite suggestion of either Chelsea or Manure as both have the sort of fickle fans that you would no doubt gel with. Then when the tough times came you could simply jump ship again. We do not allow such behavior in our camp I am afraid to say. Delightful offer though - we are genuinely flattered - unlike your team who flatters to deceive
Cosmic Pete obviously got one hell of a supply in this week!
Little Dutch
the 'immigrants' ranting again? Jacky, you must be proud to identify with this lot, eh?
Get with the program bullers, you are in denial because you fear that you will see is a repetition of your "two up and you ****ed it up" surrender routine - and yes, if you don't I will eat my blo*dy hat ;-)
Il Divo, sorry, G4 ;-) ...... A draw against the Hammers is as good as a loss i'd say. What chance of that?
Jacky B
Of course bullers, in the Sp*d camp you just bay for the managers head when it goes a bit, you know - T I T S
If I was a glory hunter, Spurs would hardly be the club to pick! Keep on trying it though, you're gonna be well embarassed when the kettamin wears off, the things you've said, honestly!
Little Dutch
Why can't you spuds just ***** off once and for a Gooner I've seen us do everything to you that I could possibly hope to see from beating you in semis to winning titles at your *****e hole to nicking your captain on a free to stealing a champs lge spot from you in your best and our worst domestic season in years to beating you with a team of kids etc..etc..etc....surely by now you should have learnt just to stay in your *****e hole but you just keep coming back for more...
Anon 1
In all seriousness, considering the rise of Totteringhams day over the last decade, surely you must be a bit gutted that we are within touching distance or thereabouts 2 seasons in a row? I mean, Aren't you just a little bit worried that the time for a bit of Spurs glory is nearly upon us. (maybe)
Jacky B
bullers, apart from the fact that in fact Sp*rs seem to have some of the most unsavoury supporters around (apologies to the real fans) I couldn't afford to support you even if I wasn't so fickle! I mean how many pound coins would I have to take to each match to chuck at the opposition?
Speaking of the glory train bullers, an anecdote for you that I just LOVE to regail on this site. After we'd won the league at WHL (the second time), we were given a police escort to Tottenham Hale to avoid your moronic fans and their attempts at violence. Anyways, we boarded the train at Tottenham Hale, about 1,500 gooners and the train pulls up at Seven Sisters, where their are around 600 angry Spuddies on the platform, smashing bottles against the tube, relishing the chance to get on and cause a ruck. However, the doors never opened and the train pulled away slowly, leaving us to taunt the bottle wielding morons and remind them who had been crowned Champions at their ground. Magic, I bet you were there with your bottle wewren't you? THAT was the glory train, is a shame it literally passed you by.
Little Dutch
use 2 p's instead. Maybe not as heavy, but larger (easier to hit your target) and you get 50 goes for the price of one. And you gooners think of yourselves as bright sparks? dear oh dear
Jacky B
Jacky, we owe the hammers quite a bit, and if AW can fire them up properly, the points should stay at Ashburton Grove. The only threat I see is Carlos Tevez - the guy is class above anyone in that team, makes you wonder what was he thinking?
Fair play to you Jacky, but how can you seriously ask if we are a bit worried about the (remote) chance of Spuds glory? I mean think about what you're saying - you are the ones that have to worry. You are the ones under pressure to produce that glory... so you are the ones that need to worry 100%... now if you asking whether we are nervously looking over our shoulder, the answer is "No, we are blo*dy not!". We don't need to worry because I find it hard to see how you will suddenly overcome the historical inferiority in a couple of odd seasons! I will concede one thing though - it may happen; so with that in mind, why don't we check back here in say 90-100 years time and compare notes then!
Wouldn't mind snapping him up in the summer for Spurs, but not before he does a bit of damage against you lot. But if he is the only threat, who was their threat when they beat you 1-0 at their gaff, when he was playin *****e?
Jacky B
Andy - The fact that we never win anything, makes dissapointment easier to take. And when we do get something it will be all the better for it. On the other hand, you, being use to winning, cant stand it when you dont and get all unsporting. Fabregas, Wenger and Henry in particular
Jacky B
Jacky, lets wait for the end of this season, shall we? spurs form has been so up and down, that it might just go down soon enough. Our form currently isnt very good obviously, but its not so bad that we are worried abt u lot. you dont seem to certain of spurs glory with the maybe inserted in the end :).
Ok jacky, I'll use 2p's instead - should I file them to make the edges sharp? Is there an internal document on this and other 'tactics'? What do you make of those smashing bottles against the train - Knuckle-dragging losers or heroes?
Jacky I would never be unsporting - I will always say your team deserved it, if indeed they did - however much I may protest about Spuds or their fans in general...
Prits of course i am uncertain. And i will never brag about us winning stuff until we actually do.
Jacky B
Andy. Actually, the hand book states, that all 2p coins should be dipped in glue, and covered in genuine "smashed against a train full of knobheads" glass, before they are thrown.
Jacky B
The biggest threat at Upton Park? Wenger landing one on Pardew. Never deserved to win that game them Hammers.
Jacky they must have taught that in a subterranean training camp in Azerbaijan as that level of expertise must take a long time to develop... no wonder you don't win anything on the pitch ;-)
the threat at upton park was the ref not giving us our deserved pen,btw when do you play the second leg,is it next thursday? or the week after,coz after that game your season is officially over.or is that just wishful thinking

Sir, you lie like a cheap watch. I was reading that getting angrier by the second. I hate the fact we aint in the cups or league, mind you thats good. It shows we are not use to a good cup run like spuds or maybe a place in the UEFA Cup. No, we are the ARSENAL and we want trophies.
God I`m so glad we dont have too many bad seasons. Feeling very excited about next.
what the ***** are liverpool doing beating the team that knocked us out 3-0 ??????????????????????? that *****ed me right off !
That's correct, sir.
It was brighter day in the Pikey camp to day I see... ST HOTSPURS DAY will come have no fear.. the luffing will be over and the caravans will be ablaze.. Oh Jockey Im coming inside watch out.. Straight through the fount door again.. Its like a leaky roof caravan number 2
here i can cheer up your day. we may be struggling at the moment, barely clinching 4th. we may be out of all competitions. we may be at the worst period of present history. but at least WE ARE THE *****EN ARSENAL! not some scouser *****s, or money grabbing ****s like the chavs.
i got my seville flag off ebay today :D all ready for tonight, one spanish team already gave me a slight cheer last night, and roma look like they will do united, so its liverpool for the cup huh ? come on seville, show that minro club in north london that they ain't so mighty, just mighty muppets!
I like it Puregold! You can add me to the Seville flag-wavers too... although I will have a home-made one I think... Do you think it will be a nice finishing touch to perhaps watch the match in an Arsenal shirt, or would that be considered provocative to our scum neighbours?
"money grabbing ****s like the chavs."Like your players play for free.
Purepikey and Andy-Gypo!! I am thrilled you will be watching tonight.. I have to admit, I was peeping over the back of the sofa when your orrible lot was getting tanked by Peter the Tiger and his sten gun Agggggerrrr!!.. Watch away in the pikeycum *****s, Im sure theres more room on the vierra dribble patch as you scoof your food.. DONT CHOKE BOYS!! Enjoy your fried rat on toasted squiwel *****
ozi gooner, you like this, you hate that, are you a one dimensional ***** or what? is australia so boring that you have to hate an english team that you have only ever seen on telly?
and what you gonna do with your sevilla flags once we beat the c r a p out of those spaniards at the lane? your best bet is to trade it in for osasuna flags I guess!!!!! keep on sweating you a s s h o l es, I like it like this. glad to know gooner fans are more worried about our team than your own. Ha Ha Ha!!!!
I don't know why there is all this banter going back and forth with the spuds....don't rise to it (or stoop).....I refuse to even consider responding....When I was a kid in 1960's london the spuds were all full of themselves cos they recently won the Double and all that.....I now tell me grandchildren about it...cos it was the last time the spuds had anything decent to taunt a young gooner about !!!
