I'm loving that bench
it would seem
Fuck it, they're bound to beat us one day, I'm happy to give them this seeing as we took both wins in the league.
Because Arsenal Youth would naturally be devastated that they played a full strength Spurs at 1-0 for 70 minutes in a mostly meaningless tournament, only to have another member of their squad come on and score.
but we never win it in the end anyway, this is our fouth semi this decade and this will be three defeats out of four.
Well he didn't do that last year, and he hasn't done it even though this is the final leg of a semi-final in which Arsenal aren't even enjoying the advantage of aggregate superiority, so why would he do it now?
when we play them on Saturday and Tuesday now though.
thats the funniest thing i've read all week
when we played them at St James Park having been rubbish in the weeks before, it's a justified concern ;)
"ahhh derby, they wont go down" - ish
it's all over
not looking good. shame...
etc etc etc!!!'.
Whereas you know that if they'd won it'd be all 'Ha, take that Spurs fans mwahahaha etc etc'.
I'm still not sure I personally care either way. I'm more intrigued by Barnet v Swindon.
Also, I'm sure Denilson was putting on that injury when they went 1-0 down so Wenger could Fabregas on without looking like a hypocrite.
CONSPIRACY THEORIES AHOY!
it's a pretty decent situation for us. I'd rather not lose by this much but what the hell, I saw us lose 6-2 once at home to Man Utd in this competition, and we still won the league that year (not that we will this year to be honest)
I'm not happy though, we're gonna get a hell of a backlash :(
i didn't expect tottenham to be 4-0 ip at all. juande ramos is going to be a fucking god on N17. an absolute GOD.
Not really a youth team is it?
ooh these arsenal kids are so good they could get into europe if they played in the prem.
they are all decent promising players, yes.
BUT WE'RE THRASHING THEM & THEY LOOK SHITE LOL THIS IS GREAT
divine right to 3 points and a motd bumming
You'll be ready to beat us in a league game?
"5-4, we're going to win 5-4!" etc
arsenal could still nick this.but only because it's tottenham hotspur.
It would be fucking hilarious if Arsenal did it...
Shades of Tranmere/Soton.
especially martin tyler going apeshit when tranmere scored their fourth goal.
It's quite sad seeing so many of you take such glee in seeing a great footballing side get beat. But Spurs have played better, and deserve the win
But as Bamos quite correctly said, it really IS a nothing competition and any Arsenal fan would much prefer to have taken points in the league, and we've done that twice over them. I have no real complaints
Doesn't effect our goal difference. I know that sounds like bullshit, but one league match really is 10x more important than that, and if you're going out of a cup it doesn't matter if you lose 1-0 or 10-0
Obviously it's not ideal, but as long as it doesn't fuck us up for the next two games then it's not a big deal
so you can't really complain about 'people taking glee in seeing such a great footballing side getting beaten'.
I don't care what Arsenal fans think, this is one of the best perfomances in a while and it's something that can only lead in us becoming a better side.
preferably not andres palop either.
I really don't know who we can get though....
could go on for another 5 years.
even if it is 5-2-, he should have scored.
just beating arsenal 4-1- is enough for them.
5-1. jermaine jenas has had his best game in a tottenham shirt.
has anyone worked out why he feels the need to pronounce names incorrectly - jane-ers?
was calling Bendtner, "Bender" :D
at least as good as hleb.
just no. im glad as anyone that arsenal got whipped. but no.
JJ is fantastic, when we play well, its because he runs the show. I'm still confused as to why half of our own fans hate him, he's been fantastic this season, as has Robbie Keane and Steeeeeeeeeed.
malbranque has excelled this season.
zokora doesn't have the quality (to be a top top prem player), and huddlestone and boateng are both lacking in certain areas...
but JJ Steeeeeeed and Lennon are brilliant. I'm starting to want us to sign Downing as a proper left winger.
Ramos is a good manager, if Spurs have any sense they won't screw things up with him.
You'll do a lot better next season anyway,
they should have tried to get mourinho. He was lucky with sevilla to have had quite a good side before he came.
Team Spurs can reward themselves with an extra drink on Saturday :D
but it's nice to see arsenal lose, they are a great team, but their fans can be incredibly smug about it.
Man Utd, Chelsea, and Arsenal fans?
i think i'm somewhat biased because i'm a united fan
but i think it annoys me when they go on about being "the better footballing side" when they don't get results, it's such a stupid excuse.
though we usually say that to Chelsea fans, rather than to you.
As a gooner, losing 5-1 to the spuds after being undefeated this century is a bit sickening, league cup or not.
Was a good, open game until it hit 4-0 though. Was even enjoying it for a bit. Thought a bit of a dream comeback might still have been on the cards at 3-0 were it not for our terrible defending.
So well done Spurs. Or something.
BEATING FULHAM ON PENALTIES!
AND WE'VE GOT BARNET IN THE NEXT ROUND!
