Interesting Stat

Interesting Stat

I've just had a phonecall from Vital Arsenal member 'Puregold'.

We spoke about the potential takeover etc but he also passed on a very interesting stat.

I don't know about all of you but I'm still celebrating St Totteringham's day, so this stat was of great interest to me.

I suppose you all want to know what this interesting stat is?

Well here it is... This weekend's North London Derby was Martin Jol's 99th league game at Spurs. During those 99 games only ONCE has he managed to beat a top 4 side, that team being Chelsea at White Hart Lane this season.

It might not sound that bad but consider that spurs are (allegedly) a team on the up, while Arsenal are a team in decline it's not that great. Also consider that West Ham have won more games against top 4 sides this season (three) than Jol has in his entire time as Spurs manager.

Need I say more? ;)

Now that's a stat worth digging up! How the poor spuds have fallen! With your little pearls of wisdom PS, we should open a little corner on the site called "PG Tips" where every week you share with us some little nugget like this!! Keep'em coming!

Not happy about the fact that Hammers have beaten us twice, but when you look at our record against the top four clubs (exchange Spurs for us) it reads P11 W7 D3 L1, in all competitions. Hows that for a slice of fried gold?

Actually I forgot about the cup final so add an extra tick to the P & L column, still makes for good reading though.

Jol thinks the big 4 are Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys and Morrisons. The guy is the most clueless manager ive seen in a long time. He doesnt buy the players (Commoli does) so cannot take credit for Berbatov, his jobs are tactics, man management and motivation all of which he fails at miserably. saying that it would take the dude from the green mile to breathe life back into that pile of s*@t club.
