An Early Eye On The Sunday

Today we have a guest post from @anicoll5
An interesting week for us and the neighbours. Our trip to Munich yielding a respectable result and a good performance against a team who are currently better than we are at football, I know, I know, but it has to be said. The only frustration an injury to Mesut.  Later in the week we here Rambo may take a little longer to return. But we are Arsenal supporters – what are injuries to us ? Chaff in the breeze – Pfffft.
For Tottenham Hotspur a full-on nightmare seven days. Sherwood happily in the shower, soaping his undercarriage and whistling ‘Nice One Cyril’, when out of the blue Anthony Perkins peers round the curtain.
Utterly humiliated by error after error at the Bridge, after which this month’s Spuds manager Tim tore a strip off the players for their appalling collective attitude.  It is said there was much shouting and air clearing.
Then on Thursday night a home QF tie against Benfica. Mighty Benfica, one of the great clubs of Europe, though not in the current elite. After some shocking Europa Cup opponents, Tromso, Simferpol  ( eh ?)  this was surely a night with the potential to be one the long suffering fans of N17 could remember in years to come. 
Two hours later the banks of empty blue seats told their own shocking tale. Cluelessness reached a new depth. Tim has had a confrontation with Jesus. His team have been crucified. He is off to the dressing room for another tongue whipping of the shocking white shirted troop of clowns and charlatans. The ashen faced Levy gropes again for his trusty axe.
Now what is the point of this tale you ask ? Other than to wallow in the juicy pleasure of Spuds’ anguish and their supporters engaging in the sort of civil war we can only dream off.
Well it is this.
I refuse to believe that Spuds can be that bad again. It would defy the laws of history, and of physics.  I anticipate a tight, hard battle, with not a second allowed for players on the ball, with errors punished ruthlessly, and for Dean the opportunity to gain an entry to the record books for cards issued. Refer back to the title therefore, and he who crows last crows longest, and probably loudest.
And if my caution is misplaced – If the game and the result do go the way of footballing form, and of player and managerial quality, and Mr Dean keeps his hand on his holiday money ?
Well I predict the death of Tottenham Hotspur Football Cub, no more, no less. 
I thank you.

  4. Don’t let the 1-0 fool you. This was a damn good win. The defence was water tight and the midfield tracked back like maniacs. We get Chelsea after they play Galatasaray in mid week. That’s another must win.

  9. Yeah PG. Do it, do it, do it – and relax!

    For me, Dean’s game wasn’t flawless. There were 8 yellow cards according to the caption at the end of the game. tooty 5 Ars 3. 2 Tottys would’ve been sent off if they were Ars players. 1 Pen to Ars not given. Chidli (par TW14 achilles stamp, unpunished), again stamped on 1 of ours and put in a few nasty ones. Sandro was pretty nasty. Totts got most of their cards deep into 2nd half.

    That said, this is a wonderful result. Well done Arsenal, and thanks. What an effort.

    Thanks for this article, and the re-post from Frank. When I first saw that post I creamed myself (Gotta use some moisturiser in this climate). At the time I presumed it was Steww, just cos it’s such an amazing piece. Great stuff.

    Lovely comments.

  10. I was away for the weekend, didn’t see any footie, so it was great to come home to that result – 1 – nil to the Arsenal! I think we are going to see a lot of these type of games and results to the end of the season with some of our key creators missing in action. I’ll take that, if the tension doesn’t kill me first!

  11. I thought Arteta was brilliant,did all the ugly stuff in front of our 2 defensive giants,had a fella on twitter telling me Arteta did just okay,we have some joyless folk in our ranks-no matter,we beat the scum at the shithole-what a goal from little Mozart.

  12. Getting 3 points at the lane today was massive,
    Considering our poor recent away form.

    Spuds, as Anicoll predicted fought today like the Russians at Stalingrad, but to no avail.
    Kos and Per really mastered Ade, don’t let the tv highlights fool you.

    Another day the score would have been 3 or 4 nil, but it’s a great sign that the team decideced they could hold the 1-0 for nearly the whole game.

  13. yeah we weren’t our usually accurate selves today DC and a true reflection of the game should have been 3 or 4 nil, shame the press seem to paint a picture of ARSENAL holding on by their fingertips and the spuds being really unlucky.
    In reality we should have been out of sight by half time as we got behind their back line many times and had them running, charge of the light brigade styley, towards their own goal. The slow lloris was the busier keeper, even with all their possession, and made some really smart saves. Add the definite pen as well and basically the spuds got away with another 4-0 london derby drubbing no wonder tiny tim of the tiny totts was so pleased with the 1-0 defeat. He was enjoying himself so much he even had time for a little joke for the cameras when he declared they deserved to win the game oh how I laughed and laughed and laughed and although I’m at work in the middle of my night shift and very tired i’m still laughing COYG

  17. Sometimes a game is truly decided by a goal, bigger than the game as it were, and so deserves such accolade. This was not one of those. It was of course a goal of the season contender. But it was a defensive performance of heroic proportions against a Spurs side that needed this win, and whatever it took. Make no mistake this was Spurs actual cup final, a do or die affair and they played accordingly; we have a few more, oh 11 more “cup finals” all told, I believe. The Arsenal team itself (if the Ox interview is any reflection, and he is such a straight talking bloke I think it was) was disappointed with the level they played and mistakes, but did not find the result lucky or incongruous. Now that’s worth everything! Because that says more about this team than anything else.

    Last time we had a “definitive” run of matches, which was like yesterday (Feb), we started badly, had some outrageous bad luck, then picked ourselves up, then stumbled. This time we have a definitive tricky run, now half way through, we remain unbeaten (H AA and have conjured 6 for and 2 against). As Frank says, everyone and their dog under-estimates our side and its combination of crisp creativity and bloody resilience, and that’s exactly the way we like it. Look at Liverpool! Look at City! And everyone’s money is on Chelsea anyway. This is a very, very good sign. Hope it continues.
