Arsenal vs. Tottenham

Emirates Stadium

28/10/08

On Sky

Arsenal v. Tottenham

The first North London Derby of the season is upon us, as Harry Redknapp brings last place Tottenham to the Emirates Stadium to face the Arsenal. Everyone involved with both clubs knows the passion, drama, and importance these games mean on and off the pitch, and as with every derby this one has its own special storyline. The Ramos Revolution is well and truly over with at White Hart Lane, and Spurs have brought in a manager that will surely have his players fired up, ready to fight till the very end to avoid another loss in the 08/09 edition of the Barclay's Premier League.

Vital Quotes:

Arsene Wenger wants to see his squad just play their game in this fixture. 'I believe what is important tomorrow is how well Arsenal will play and not who sits on the bench at Tottenham.

'We have put a run together and that has strengthened our belief.

'We want now to go from strength to strength - we have come back to an interesting position in the league and we are highly convinced that it will be down to our strengths tomorrow more than anything else.'

The Frenchman is also not focusing at all on Harry. 'I believe if there is one game that is a bit special, it is Tottenham versus Arsenal so I don't think that will change a lot,' he explained.

'Certainly in the longer term future it will change things for Tottenham, the fact that Harry has taken over, but I believe in tomorrow's specific game it is more about how well we will play and I believe that is more important than anything else.

'I am very confident because we have a very strong united spirit in the dressing room and we want to do well.

'We have shown that in recent games, we won at Fenerbahce, we won at West Ham, we have beaten Everton in a convincing way and we want to keep that going.'

Adebayor has taken pity on Spurs. "I think every player feels sorry for them," Adebayor told talkSPORT Magazine.

"They have a strong team, good players and I'm sure that in a few months they'll be back winning games. At the moment they lack confidence and when you lack confidence it's always difficult to win games. But at the moment Tottenham are really bad."

Redknapp will be hoping that his team will be able to ride the momentum of their first win of the season on Sunday against Bolton. 'Going to the Emirates Stadium is always difficult and there will be a great atmosphere.

'But I was impressed with how we played on Sunday [when Spurs beat Bolton 2-0].

'I was also impressed with the players in training who weren't even playing and if we can show our quality we will quickly move up the table.'

Arsenal Team News:

Denilson will return to the squad, but after Song's great preformance against West Ham, Denny's starting place is in some major doubt. Wenger confirmed in his own sneaky, clever way that he will have his first choice defense back for this game, as both Sagna and Kolo have recovered from their respective injuries.

Possible Starting XI: Almunia, Sagna, Gallas, Toure, Clichy, Walcott, Song, Fabregas, Nasri, van Persie, Adebayor

Player to watch: Emmanuel Adebayor

Adebayor has relished in the Pires like role of always being a thorn in Tottenham's side. The Togolese international has a gifted knack of scoring against Spurs. Since his transfer to Arsenal in January of 2006, he has scored a grand total of 7 goals against Arsenal's North London rivals. Add that to the massive confidence boost he received over the weekend, will no doubt see him cause all sorts of problems for Spurs.

Tottenham Team News:

Both of Spurs first choice centre backs are doubtful for this game. King has already played 2 games in a row so a visit to the treatment room is on the cards, and Woodgate is still struggling with a groin injury. Their next option at centre back is also out, because Micheal Dawson will still be suspended for his red card against Stoke. Though Gareth Bale will return to the squad.

Player to watch: Luka Modric

The young Croatian played his first good game for Spurs against Bolton, and he will hoping that he can continue his good form against Arsenal. There's no doubt that when he plays for Croatia the quality is there, but since his move to White Hart Lane, he has yet to show it on a consistent basis. I suspect Song will be looking to mark the diminutive midfielder out of the contest.

Match Facts & Stats

Once again, van Persie will be looking to reach a half century of goals for the club.

Almunia will be making his 50th Premier League appearance for Arsenal.

Sagna will be making his 50th start for Arsenal.

Home and away

League (inc PL): Arsenal 59 wins, Spurs 45, Draws 38

Prem: Arsenal 13 wins, Spurs 5, Draws 14

at Arsenal only

League (inc PL): Arsenal 36 wins, Spurs 17, Draws 18

Prem: Arsenal 9 wins, Spurs 1, Draws 6

Ref Watch:

Martin Atkinson will be the head official for this big fixture. He has refereed 5 Premier League matches this season, handing out 13 yellows and no reds. His card per game count is 2.6.

Match Prediction:

This is not going to be a walk in the park like it would of been if Ramos was still managing, but Arsenal have the quality to break down this Tottenham side especially with their injuries in defense. I am going to say 3-0 to the Arsenal, with Adebayor scoring at least one and van Persie getting in on the act as well.

Next Fixtures:

1/11-- Stoke City(A)-- Premier League

5/11-- Fenerbache(H)-- Champions League

8/11-- Manchester United(H)-- Premier League

Its not going to be easy, but I believe we can win by that scoreline, if we come out and look to crush their new found spirit early.
gunnerkid107
Gunnerkid, it should be easy, the spuds have lost theyr main strikers and theyr defence is even crappier than ours, so 3 - 0 is a very reasoneble scoreline to exspect.
Armory
every game is diff, arsenal are expected to win, we can ony hope for a draw, this is a derby so form goes out window. just want a good performance from our lads, after problems of last few months. neways should be a good game
123spurs
armory, just like hull an fulham......
123spurs
My oh my look what is surfacing now, a new manager and the spuds start to surface again I suppose you will be going for the fourt place now 123spud.
Armory
hey its the media sayin 4th ok buildin us up...looks like aarsenl will claim 4th just ahead of villa, well ony way to chamapion leagues is 4th for ye guys, YES we have failed ok, but havent arse failed in last 3 years supposed to be top team and have won nothing, so where kinda even, not hear for stupid banter, just a fan love of the game
123spurs
123 It's much more than the media, the spuds fan sides are full of statements about spuds coming glory and of Arsenals fall from the top 4 every summer, as for lack of tropies for the last 3 years we have gone throug a barren spell after wenger took over before and came back to win another double and I can see no reason why that can not happen again, just last year we where 3 and only 4 points behind the camps. Not to mention that we have had the additional burden of financing a new statium, I'm sure if you look into the spending of the two clubs for the last three years Arsenal spent much less and finished much higher than spuds every year.
Armory
i agree with what ur sayin, but not all fans agree we can get in to top 4, yes we are tryin, an certin thing have not worked out due to backroom problems. as u an arse fan must be frustrated cause they have everything but missin something also. im from ireland, so riverly aint that much here.
123spurs
whats this??? civilized banter between the spuds and us gunners??? I believe our team will decide how this one goes we have had inconsistency in attitude and if we stay focused we should win if we approach it like we deserve to win and spuds should lay downthen it will be tough...talentwise? no comparison...desire? we will find out tonight...
anonymous
I'd say that the worst thing to appen to spuds was levi. At the time Wenger arrived you where not so far behind Arsenal but have stagnated and gone backwards in the last decade, as for the missing pice at Arsenal is a bit of luck, our indjuris last season where bad and we simply dont have the financial muscle at this time to have a bigger and better paid squad, rociky rvp eduardo all long term injuries last season with denilson diaby gallas etch etch out for shorter periods, when playing at the top you need your top players for the whole season or same quality replacements.
Armory
If this was an away fixture for us, the Redknapp/new manager factor would have worried me more. This will be a very tough fixture for Redknapp and Spurs, I can see us really playing football on a different level. Redknapp's tactics are going to be really interesting. And although the win against Bolton would have given them a lift, there will always be some self-doubt among the Tottenham players.
Gooner_Vin
our away record for last decade is woeful, our home record has got us where we are, hense why are bottom due to not performing at home, but im sure will adapt hes great man management skilss which is needed.
123spurs
As long as we play football we'll be ok. Wenger needs to play two up front imo, we need to put as much pressure as we can on their defence. Fast paced, high tempo, wave after wave of attacks, we need to batter them from start to finish and with urgencey, if we can keep our discipline we can reverse the hammering we took last time, I'm sure of it, but if we're tentative, then god only knows whay will happen.
Rocky7
I'm a little apprehensive about this game. New manager impact and all that.
prits
I would take a draw now and I think every sensible spurs fan would do the same, in our situation points are way above local rivalry. As a team we are still very fragile of confidence and if you score an early goal I think it could be a comfortable night for you, but the longer we keep a clean sheet our self belief will increase, but I think if you guys are on your game I think you will get the points..
oxfordspur
IF Ledders and Woody come thru and have a game like they did against Chelsea we could get that draw that I am hopin for. Arsenal are an exceptional squad on there day, But if Brice is right and Gallas is playing then that may work for us. Goin for a 1-1 draw Adebayor for Arsenal (simply coz he has to score against spurs) and Gallas OG for spurs (coz at the moment we cant score for peanuts)
Lily_White
No doubt the Spurs team will be fired up. But after reading Ade's comments about "revenge", lol I almost forgot! Seriously, I kept thinking we got 6 points against them last year so I didn't remember the last NLD was actually the 5-1 thing. That's how much/little it meant/means to me. Anyway, I'm glad Ade hasn't forgotten like I have :P and go Ade go! Yes GK, I also hope Ade will continue the job started by Bobby and score in the NLD. My guess is 3-1 to us, with Ade/RvP/Cesc and Bent on either side of the scoreline hehehe.
GoonerLou
lets have a reality check here. Spuddies are crapola, Arsenal on their day should smash them off the park. this is the prem and spuds have found a tiny bit of confidence since their one and only win of the season, I think it will be tighter than people believe !
PUREGOLD
I think most Arsenal fans might secretly take that draw Ox, because make no mistake about it, despite our fantastic record in NLD's in recent history, they make us nervous every bit as much as they do you. We got a reputation to protect, and the longer this PL NLD steak continues, the more likely it is we're gunna lose to Spurs one day. IMO, in reality we should have too much for you guys, but when you take all the banter and schnide jokes away, any team can win any football match on any given day .... and that day could be today. God forbid.
Rocky7
Secretly take a draw??? Rock, have you lost the plot mate? I'd sneakily take a 4-1 drubbing of the spu*s!! lol
LondonGooner
From all at Pompey. Please stuff Spuds tonight. Tear 'em apart. Come on Arsenal!
NinjaTim
I have publically made know my distinct nervousness of these occasions LD, as long as we don't lose then we won't have to listen to the cries of "we're coming for you"
Rocky7
Rock, if we stick 5 past them tonight and they get a point against the scousers, they will still shout "we're coming for you!" it's inevitable....mr anderson!
LondonGooner
I'd sneakily take a 2-1 win. Openly I say I want a 3-0 or 3-1 or 4-1 or any bigger spanking.
GoonerLou
Fair point LG - Infact even if we scrape a 1-0 win they'll still insist we were lucky and they're coming for us. ...lol
Rocky7
Damned if you do damned if you don't.
LondonGooner
Sweet, sweet memories: http://www.arsenal.com/news/news-archive/redaction
GoonerLou
From us at Pompey. Kill 'em.
storagematt
Storagematt, good luck to your boys and Big Tone too! :)
GoonerLou
Lineup: Almunia; Sagna, Gallas, Silvestre, Clichy; Theo, Cesc, Denilson, Nasri; RvP, Ade. Subs: Diaby, Kolo, Carlos, Song, Fabianski, Bendtner, Eboue.
GoonerLou
F*** ME!! Can't argue with that.
Rocky7
unbelievable. fair enough, but why do people always seem to score wondergoals against us?
ArsenalRob
Great reaction so far. I'm not worried.
GoonerLou
Fudging David Bently! We could put 10 passed them now and i'd still be *****ed.
Kutch
Someone needs to teach our players what a NLD means to us.
Rocky7
I dunno Rob, but one of the "50 greatsest goals against Arsenal" programs would make for some spectacular (if not painful) viewing.
Rocky7
For us it's a NLD, for them it's a NLD in the relegation dogfight.
GoonerLou
It's bloody typical isn't it, the first time I'm ever arrogant and cocky about an NLD and this happens .... lol .... luckily I've got s sh** load of beer chilled.
Rocky7
I wonder, does Cesc regret his comment now?
Armory
MIKAELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! :D :D :D
GoonerLou
From Man Utd dolphin headed ******** to ARSENAL HERO!!!
Rocky7
Am I sick? I get more ecstatic over goals from set-pieces lol..
GoonerLou
Theo has been a massive threat tonight, I hope he gets a goal!
Rocky7
Yeah Rocky, and Robin too! I can see one coming from him!
GoonerLou
F*** it ... I hope anyone gets a goal. lol
Rocky7
Yep or a Gomes OG, I don't care.
GoonerLou
We started off slow, but we really started to kick in after that and looked like we wanted to beat them bad. We've had the vast majority of the chances. Theo, Robin, and Clichy look totally into it right now. van Persie's going to get his 50th goal tonight
gunnerkid107
van P looks very dangerous. Ade is working very hard for the team too, I wouldn't out it past him to be in the right place at the right time at some point this evening.
Rocky7
Shut up Redknapp you f****** muppet. First class *****er.
Rocky7
My last comment seems to have gone missing.
Armory
What did Redknapp say rocky7?
Armory
There was a foul in the build up to each goal according to Redknapp Jr, yet despite him supposedly being a neautral pundit he was practially shouting at Alan Smith who didn't think the foul in the build up to our goal was a foul (and he didnt think the other was either), yet Redknapp didn't even touch upon our the foul leading up to their goal.
Rocky7
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Rocky7
I was saying as he trotted up, "go on Billy, both centre backs score in the same game"!!!!!
Rocky7
He's a **** and always will be. As I cant see the game on telly or hear it on radio could you tell me if we need to improve alot or are we close to getting a goal?
Armory
We're all over em .... I won't be happy until the 5-1 scoreline is wiped from our memories though. Today is the day if we want it badly enough.
Rocky7
You know what??? Theo is a beast now.
Rocky7
'Arry wants one point - through Lennon eh?
GoonerLou
Get in Billy G! Early days yet, but maybe Billy and Micky should be 1st choice? Billy and Micky... sounds like some cartoon...
ArsenalRob
Yeah Rob lol, I keep wondering if this is the best pairing we've seen so far this season.
GoonerLou
Gael's a beast too!
GoonerLou
I have just looked at the stads on the internet, they are scary we have 8 shots on goal = 2 goals spuds have 1 shot on goal = 1 goal.
Armory
Give him the ball ...........
Rocky7
I want 5. Come on boys, I want 5.
Rocky7
For *****s sake.
Rocky7
OK, we have to keep attacking, which is good.
GoonerLou
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! What a ******** game
Rocky7
Whoa Robin's RIGHT foot!! :D
GoonerLou
Rocky do you want 6 now? lol
GoonerLou
Booboo's on, yay!!!
GoonerLou
Arsenal fans singing for Pompey "One Tony Adams, there's only one Tony Adams"! :)
Rocky7
Yes Lou, I do!
Rocky7
Every single player who we have questioned has gotten on the score sheet tonight. Very pleasing.
Rocky7
I just can't switch channels to see it now! lol How are Pompey doing?
GoonerLou
pool 1 up
Armory
And the very things we've questioned too - defence tightened up a bit, set-pieces attacked well, varied ways of attacking their goal. Ffs even Robin's right foot actually worked lol
GoonerLou
Yes Lou. Nothing could be done about the 1st goal, and while we might of gotten tight on the shot that led to the 2nd, you can't really prepare for a goal keeping blunder like that.
Rocky7
Before this game, 6 of our 18 goals so far came from the last 5 mins of games. lol. It's the 83th now, let's see what happens.
GoonerLou
Hehe Song's beaming coming on. :D
GoonerLou
Un - **** - beleiable. Why do we always do this *****?
Rocky7
If we f*** this up every single player is gunna get a slap .... lol
Rocky7
Tottenham were really on for a hiding tonight, they're second best to us in every respect, but we didn't give it to them. Jenas scored, Bent scored and Bently scored, three players i couldn't bring myself to hate more. That said we've looked pretty good i reckon, just lethargic.
Kutch
F***** idiots. That's all I can say.
Rocky7
Lennon, make that four i couldn't despise anymore. Gotta laugh really we've done a pretty good spurs impression tonight.
Kutch
That is a disgrace. Fair play to Tottenham for keeping going. A f*****ing disgrace
Rocky7
What did I say before kick off? If Spurs get anything it will be down to personal error. S***!
Rocky7
Way to ******** go Wenger. Thought the god damn game was won so he took the offense off.
gunnerkid107
This is bull. Feckin shambles
Gunnerman
Give up GK, how the **** can that be Arsene's fault? 2 goals up with no minutes to go? The players are to blame.
Rocky7
Wenger's the last person i'd blame, both occasions we were two up we didn't apply any pressure, it was all head tennis and back passes.
Kutch
Can't blame Tottenham. Well done to them. *****! Arsene made 3 god **** defensive substitutions that killed our game
gunnerkid107
My head's spinning, geez it's 6am here and I can't sleep. Rocky it did cross my mind that I shouldn't praise them until the final whistle. I think I jinxed it.
GoonerLou
How can you not blame Wenger here? The players have to take the blame too, but he killed our attack. If he at least kept van Persie and Walcott on we would of never laid back in the final minutes.
gunnerkid107
Man, this team are terrible, they just don't know how to do things properly. All the talent in the world with absolutely no idea how to apply it.
Professor Calculus
Probably not the time to say this, but does no one else find this slightly funny? Complete ineptitude and such. I don't think i've ever felt this jovial after such a *****e result.
Kutch
That's football though. Even though we both got the same points, one set of fans feel like we've lost, the other feels like a victory.
Rocky7
Because we had a two goal lead. There was no need to go mental. It's not like he brought extra defenders on to invite the pressue. The players on the pitch had the responsibility to protect our area and they did that pathetically, Wenger is not to blame in the slightest.
Rocky7
I'm glad you can laugh Kutch. I'm pretty *****ed off right now.
Rocky7
Too true, i didn't notice much ball retention or pressure being put on spurs before the substitutions. I blame David Bently.
Kutch
I can only laugh because i expect(ed) absolutely zilch from us in terms of success this season and backed up by the dissapointing last few years i'm not too bothered how we do tbh. It doesn't seem so funny after being put like that though ;_;
Kutch
Okay maybe I over reacted at first in anger, but I still do not like the 3 defensive substitutions. That is not Arsenal, we attack till the end. We would of kept the ball in the last few minutes had there been another option for Cesc instead of only Ade. I am convinced that it was a mistake to make 3 defensive subs. Its easy to say that now I know, but I said also said the same thing when he took van Persie off. Don't get me wrong, the players are to blame here very much so, but I think that Arsene could of kept up the pressure till the end. Robin had a blinder, and its all for nothing.
gunnerkid107
lmao......all ye cocky arse fans come on here an be a man......ye could not beat us an we are pants we are bottom could not beat a team from bottom of table so who's laughin now.........oh its arsenal arrogent fans
123spurs
GK I wouldn't blame Arsene as much as the subs themselves. 95% of the teams would bring on defensive/strong players to protect the lead. It's the subs' and the defence's mentality towards the end that disappointed us. Of course with hindsight, we should have kept RvP and/or Theo to keep the ball and the pressure. But those subs were supposed to come on and do a job - and the team as a whole were supposed to hang on to the lead - just for a few mins ffs. They showed improvements in the game until it's 4-2, then our defence started looking like Spurs'!
GoonerLou
not sure who worse now us are ye......lol
123spurs
I understand you point Lou, but we are not 95% of teams. We absolutely do not know how to play defensively.
gunnerkid107
I'm crying, I can't stop the tears, someone please help!!!
Gooner_Vin
where are you now luck10, come out come out where ever you are hope u cant call from ur ex./............lol
123spurs
the funny thing is .........forget who ye were playin the thinkg is ye lost to a team bottom of the league...................wait an worse its spurs........its really funny
123spurs
The substitutes are irrelevant. We're 4-2 up FFS; you just HAVE to see that out for the win; if you can't, you don't deserve the title. Fellow Gunners - prepare yourself for more of the same; glorious failure.
Gooner_Vin
Yeas 123 we drew with a team from the bottom and it's still at the bottom, worse has happened, but must say that you never gave up to nite and got what u deserved but will it be enough can u perform like this against anyone but else?
Armory
arsenal to finish 4th in the league this year and then everyone bail out to real top clubs abroad , bye bye cesc bye bye adebuyor , and by the way you only get goals at home by cheating and paying of the ref , first goal was after what should have been a foul on bently and free kick at the beginning of the first half was never a foul and you know it so really we should have done you 4-2 , ;) come on you spurs suck that you pikey pie eaters!!!!!
craighrvy
123spurs Don't get ahead of yourself now, spurs were second best in every aspect of tonights game so i'm still pretty sure your team is worse, we even had the best comedy error goal giveaway of the night with Gael narrowly outdoing that baldy bloke who thought it would be a good idea to pass to Adebayor.
Kutch
craighrvy, i thought spurs were going to finsih fourth this year?
Kutch
true amroy, but some of ur fellow fans here gave us a right go off , just payin them back a bit welll of course there one swho wont be on now unlike good fans like you
123spurs
Too many silly mistakes. We don't have a strong enough mentality. This was only Tottenham, scoring 4 goals against us, God knows what's gonna happen when we play the top 3. I'm afraid LD is right; we're like a basketball team and he predicted we would concede 4 against the top sides like Pool, Chavs and Man Utd. We've only gone and done it against Spuds.
Gooner_Vin
kutch we often out played ye in derbies an ended with nothing....to not we never game sup ye though ye had it in the bag wrong
123spurs
Derbies are always about who wants it more. I have to put my hand up and say that Spurs just did what they had to do (for a team in the relegation zone), to fight hard till the very end. The NLD + new manager syndrome + 'Arry's motivation & tactics + relegation dogfight factors got them that spirit. We capitalised on their defensive errors and, sadly, vice versa. But it's clear that it's not a quality issue, but a mentality one. It made me feel that the Fenerbahce game made them think that it's ok to concede as long as we could score a lot of goals. Our defence was treating Spurs like Fenerbahce towards the end, which was completely wrong. I don't know how many wake-up calls we need. But I have more hopes in the cups than the league if I'm honest.
GoonerLou
I'm sorry 123 but you've never outplayed the arse in any game in my lifetime, and i most certainly and at any point during the game i might add, think it was in the bag.
Kutch
i ll take 17th , i dont care as long as we stay up this season now , roll on when the gooners come to the lane cant wait!!!!!!! wenger aint the great tactition you think he is , take all you attack off and play with 5 defenders and we still managed to score two goals good one arsene he he he i love it , and its not like you can say you didnt play your best team and all that this time!!!
craighrvy
Lou - I feel for you, you must be doubly suffering having stayed up/got up so early to go through that. I just can't believe how ridiculous that was. Seems like a bad dream. If only!
Gooner_Vin
I was startin to deal with it until I read the posts from the Spuddies that reminded me they are bottom of the league!! God damn it! Lol
Rocky7
ok kutch sweet dream
123spurs
I think "lol" sums up the whole situation Rocky, everything about the match and both teams current situation, it's why i can't bring myself to feel bad in hindsight i think i may of enjoyed the game. Or i inhaled something during the match.
Kutch
an worse rocky ur so calleld team couldnt beat them an geek a 2 goal lead..........twice..........worry about yer own problems
123spurs
123 i can assure you as Arsenal fans we most certainly do not "worry" about your teams situation, past or present.
Kutch
I'm done venting about the game now. Strange strange day.
prits
123 - I've been drinking heavily since the final whistle and I got no idea of what you just said??!!??
Rocky7
so why so many arse fans on spurs sites
123spurs
He sais we should worry about stuff.
Kutch
The same could be said for you being here? Do perhaps secretly harbour a soft spot for our lovely team and are only coming here because you are genuinely concerned about our teams wellbeing?
Kutch
not to worry it will become a reality in morning
123spurs
Eh? You sure you haven't been drinking too? Or do you just care too much?
Kutch
Oh yes...the morning will come and we will all realise that we have gone up a place in the league and you are still bottom !!.....oh the agony of drawing a game !!......
radarman
Vin, yeah I've stayed up all night. And now I'm so gutted I still can't sleep at like 7.20am here. But at least I'm not in London, going to work/school in the morning. Don't know and haven't met any Spurs fans here lol. Good that they're not a big club with a global fanbase lol..
GoonerLou
radman look at bigger pic ye could not beat a team bottom of league just shows what about ye....ye have no chance of winning anyhting
123spurs
So what do you prepose we do 123? do you think you'll be able to help your beloved Arsenal? I can't think of anything myself.
Kutch
i care care but another failed season with no silverware.......knives will be out.COYS
123spurs
123spurs....the bigger picture is that YOU will finish mid table if you are lucky...WE will learn from this and continue challenging for the premier league title....we may not win it but we will be close.....you have not got a prayer !!...that is the BIG picture....
radarman
*dont
123spurs
The only thing big are Tom Huddlestones dinners, christ has he put on a stone or five since i last saw him?
Kutch
close to win not in last 3 years kid ........
123spurs
Yeah four points behind ManU last season...that was a massive gap at the end wasn't it ?.....
radarman
Ah, What the F*** was that, How the hell do you let go on a 4:2 lead like that! I walked back for the pub, in what was a deam-like state! I just couldn't believe it. How? Why? could 4:2 become 4:4
