Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
No more purple.....but WHITE AGAIN!
Also - New sponsor "Adidas"?
I hope the deal is worth more than the last one we had with Nike.
I was talking about Gerrard saying he wouldn't say anything against Suarez, after the bite on a Chelsea player. Birds of a feather , and all that ?
I read Defoe bit a player sometime ago and only got a 3 match ban.. double standards methinks.. if Defoe gets only a 3 match ban then so should Suarez.
I don't know what you are talking about? At Feyenoord and in Holland he was always recognized for amazing talent that he is. He might have had his run ins with Van Marwijk but that was due to his young age and due to Van Marwijk just as much. If you look at his injuries during his time at Arsenal you will see that they were mostly impact injuries. That's why SAF knew he wasn't taking much of a risk.
It is unlikely, highly unlikely, that Arsenal will win either the PL or the CL in the next 5-10 years and at 29 and no trophies to show for it I know many Arsenal fans who understand he left when he was told of Wenger's immediate plans.
The reason this club is in it's current predicament is because fans like you refuse to put the blame where it belongs, with the manager and the owner.
Are you angry because no world class players want to come to Arsenal? Are you angry because now even average players like Jovetic only will consider coming to Arsenal if we can guarantee CL football? RVP didn't screw us around like Cesc did, making eyes to Barca for his last 3 seasons with us. And Cesc had plenty of career left to be able to stay a few more years with us.
RVP was not the first to leave as a result of the lack of ambition and ability of both manager and club and he won't be the last.
Let's be great full he single handily got us to 3rd last season and hope we qualify for CL football and can sign some good but average players.
World class players like Goetze and Falaco have long been out of our reach. And now it seems even 15 mill for a good keeper is out of our reach.
Let's just be greatfull Arsenal fans and appreciative that we have had the pleasure to have the best PL player play for us until he was 29. It will be a long long time before we again will be able to say we have the best PL in our squad.
It is petty and wrong to vent on RVP for what should be recognized as the faults of the manager and the owner in the making for years.
PS We Aresnal fans would do a lot better to try to get Usmanov involved through protests etc than to waste our energy on players who have left us.
Wenger Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kroenke out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 300 million to rebuild!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a potentially rough weekend for Arsenal. A win is possible because we don't know what Man U will playing for. It should be hard for them to show up and give 110% having already won the PL so their season is over. On the other hand Man U seems to always want to win. My worry is SAF starting a lot of young guys who normally don't get a starting spot. They will be keen to show what they can do.
Arsenal also seem to have a mental block when it comes to the Man U games and have not played very well in recent games.
The one good thing for us is that Spurs and Chelsea still play each other.
If we are ever going to beat you when it matters this is our best chance.
I believe!!!!!!!!! :-)
Ok so you were referring to an incident when "They" had a go at Utd, Fergie etc. You dig it back up to make a point on here. Fair enough. That does not stop the fact that Utd do get many dubious calls by refs in their favour? Will you really dispute that?
Perhaps what you have missed is that I'm actually quite a fair minded chap. After 38 games I wont be digging up dubious ref calls about why Arsenal didnt do better. Over the course of the whole season I do think it balances out, I do believe in making your own luck, and come May, ref calls are not really a legitimate excuse for your end result.
Game to game Ref decisions always come up for review/discussion which is fair enough, but generally its easy to see how much the refs calls impacted the game, and after most games you can tell whether the result is fair based on how the teams performed.
As for your other attack: I return and apologise for forgetting the challenge on Evra (hold my hands up when reminded and agree) I would accept that and show respect for the person who did it with me. It takes a bigger man to accept when they are wrong or have been mistaken. No one is always right. Strangely though you see it as a reason to attack me? What is that?
Petty and nasty come to mind. Ar you really so angry? Drop the chips on your shoulder, life becomes much more enjoyable and happy if you do.
I wish we were only 2 players from a title, but I cant see Messi and Ronaldo playing for Arsenal.
I personally think we are at least 4/5 players away from a title challenge and that's without a keeper.
A full back to cover Sagna leaving, Centre back, Defensive midfielder, Offensive midfielder and a proper out and out goal scorer!
So, you give a guy a break and a bit of credit, he gets another chance and what does he do? You guessed it, reverts back to being a slow plodder who is not good enough for a side aiming for 4th. The Citeh game was a glimpse (mixed up with his faults as well) of what he can do when he is up for it but he reminds me of Charlie Adam. A good season with Blackpool, knocking the ball around at will, then a move to Liverpool and he is shown up for what he is...too slow and not up to top tier football.
Obviously I would love us to be able to pick up enough points to go above Ar$e but my heart and guts tell me it isn't going to happen. Which is more likely....us losing points to Southampton or Ar$e losing points to QPR?
Its been said before and rightly so but we are paying the price for not buying a striker when everybody knew we desperately needed one. We didn't buy a straight replacement for Modric, although I am hoping Holtby grows into that role, Ade is too lazy and doesn't care and we don't have enough players that are up for a fight.
Its not looking good IMO.
Just the tonic we needed after a rough week. No Suarez but no need to worry on the goals front. For me it shows how well the system is working, so credit to BR and all the lads for a great team effort. But especially big praise for Coutinho who really pulled the strings. Really a shame he did not get on the score sheet, but think it was clear to everyone he was man of the match.
The usual diatribe from Thick Rikk, he who has called for Ferguson to lose his post as manager.
Fancy crowing over Fergusons latest achievement after having loudly voiced the opinion of wanting him out of the managerial seat.
I guess the label 'two faced fickle glory boy' can be rightly pinned on Rikki now, along with all the more off used....complete #$%$ (common usage).
Wind up? I think you'll find all I am doing is stating facts actually.I leave the fantasies and bully bull to you glory boys. Perhaps that is why I regularly make a mockery out of you Beaky.
Think it through old son and take it on board,then maybe one day that brain of yours will stop hurting.
And here it is, hilarious stuff; http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/mb/;_ylt=AlDU6E4DBZUxBinfdSqgPZjUAygB;_ylu=X3oDMTFhb2Nna29nBG1pdANNZXNzYWdlIGJvYXJkBHBvcwM2BHNlYwNNZWRpYU1zZ0JvYXJkcw--;_ylg=X3oDMTFlMTluMDVoBGludGwDZ2IEbGFuZwNlbi1nYgRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdAMEcHQDc2VjdGlvbnM-;_ylv=3?&bn=37a5f925-9c89-36bb-a3aa-ee8b56c54c53&tid=1367309999311-3e8ba0aa-0b17-4662-bc0d-1ac4229d0b9c&tls=la%2Cd%2C0
"Oh dear, here he is, crying again, hoping someone, anyone will believe him!
This idiot Geordie has been on here since 2005, he's made 27,000+ posts under more than 25 different IDs, all the same bad grammar and spelling, and all with the same post.
He has lied about looking like Van Helsing, lied about being 6ft 6ins, lied about beating up EIGHT United supporters in a bar, lied about all the good looking women that stop him in the street and give him their phone number, lied about the houses he owns, lied about living in the South of France ..... and much more ..... and had a new one ripped for him by DOZENS of United supporters!
He has been so humiliated that he disappears for months at a time, then turns up with a new ID crying, "I bet Butch thinks I'm Geordie bloke!"
He craves my attention, and hates it that I ignore him, he wishes he was me, wishes he'd done what I've done, been where I've been, and own what I own .... a real Geordie wannabe!
YOU live in a dirty, run-down excuse for a city, Wannabe, I live on one of the best beaches in the world, in a house you could only dream of owning, the sun comes up over the Pacific Ocean every morning and streams into my bedroom, the sun comes up over the local gasworks and wakes you up!!
I'm back on Rinjani in August, Geordie Wannabe, and I'm going to write you a little message from the rim of the volcano, just for you, something along the line of "ALL Geordies are UGLY!" ... (Watch Geordie Shore if you don't believe me!)
Now, creep back into your hole, before someone else does what I do all the time, and ridicules you!"
Crikey Butch, that was almost an essay, it looks like I've caused you to blow a fuse!
Easy old fella, you'll end up having a stroke or a heart attack at this rate!
LMFAO - Butch the wannabe Aussie, always getting OWNED BY A GEORDIE!
"You could have a hundred 'experts' for all I care, FACTS however are FACTS "
And although the fact is that replays show Sagna failing to get the ball, you keep harping on about the one expert who says what youhad so clearly desperately wanted to hear. Funny, that. When you come back from your bitter fantasy land, ket us know.
A player called 'Fabongrass' playing for Real Madrdi!!!
Show me!! show me!!!
(otherwise I may be tempted to think you are even more dense than I already perceive you to be!)
