Anyone else think this is a joke?
although i like the line:
"However, the north London club are set to lose their appeal"
You'd be stupid not to ask for a rematch.
The chances are the request will be turned down, but they were exceptional circumstances, so we'll just have to wait and see if David Dein and the other FA Council members look upon Spurs in a favourable light.
With David Dein as one of the council members, they don't stand a chance. Spurs aren't gonna get it, but it makes no difference to West Ham cos they don't exactly have anything to play for themselves.
I know they lost out, but its just very unfortunate. Arsenal played most of the season without two international defenders, thats why teams have a squad of 20 plus players to choose from when these things occur, and considering nearly all of them played 90 minutes they weren't exactly that ill.
Spurs are allowed to replay the match, which they win and therefore qualify for the Champions' League, much to their delight.
Then Arsenal win the Champions' League and Spurs are out again.
..it's a bit stupid. like the article says they have no hope of winning as appeal now.
They should have reused to play the game if they were going to appeal.
You can't play, lose, then appeal. Bitter fools.
wasn't anything to do with all their results over the whole of the season now was it?
Their whole season was shaped by one game? what a bunch of twats.
It's just how you take the fact that you screwed up your season at the end that's hurting them, they just needed to 3 points from ANY of the other run-in matches...like maybe not losing 3'1 to Newcastle, or even West Brom a few months back.
I saw that match and although a few did look pretty ropey, Keane especially, we won the match pretty fairly.
It's the fact that the Arse beat them to it. And let's face it, the Arse had a far-below-standard season although I love how all the people I know who support them think that they should've finished higher. I
and it gives us more ammunition to use against them.
LOL @ THE SPUDS
so i hope the request is turned down.
and even I don't want a reply. It'll make a total mockery of the whole affair.
Fucking Arsenal though, always pull it out the bag.
Still, Henry will go, and that'll be that. Mid table for a decade...
it seems as if you lobby the right people hard enough, you can get the laws changed.
Just look at Glen Roeders imminent appointment at newcastle and liverpools entry into the champions league.
We are constantly told to live life by the rules, yet if you suck enough cock, the rules do not apply to you.
Liverpool ultimately were knocked out of the champions league after a piss poor showing and I predict that Roeder will be piss poor too as the FIFA coaching badge is there for a reason, to stop shit coaches getting the top jobs, yet no-one seems to remember that Roeder took west ham down, albeit aided by another over-rated sack of shit harry redknapp.
He's just riding on the cusp of a wave because everyone was so happy that souness left. Next season, back to normal and all the same questions will be asked. I feel sorry for toon fans coz their chairman is a cunt.
So yeah, if they suck hard enough, spurs will get what they want, oh but wait a minute, they're not G14 are they? they're fucked then
