    Is there some mass delusion machine at White Hart Lane ? Bentley said he was leaving for a CL calibre side and now Redknapp thinks he's managing a big side??

    Every fan only cares about their own team but all the rumours coming from Whit Hart Lane implied that Commoli was going and Ramos and Poyet would be given more time fast forward a matter of hours and they are all gone that why it was so newsworthy

    Throw in the fact that everyone wanks over the cheeky chappie, wheeler dealer Harry Redknapp and it was Sky Sports news heaven!

    What a joke Spurs are.

    OI Clarkey! Have you heard of a player with the Surname 'Anderson'? Apparently he's 14 and is playing for the Arsenal U16s and scoring 40 goals a season for them! And he's English! Shocked

    His dad played for Southend and scored against Charlton... He also directed the Nike advert where you had the player's view during matches for Arsenal and Holland.

    Hes got a good ready made team there for him, the players know him and seem to like him so he should do well

    The only thing that could count against him is maybe he was too familiar with the players and he wont be able to command the respect an incoming manager would

    It'll be interesting to see in January if there will be a mass exodus or if Donkey can keep them together to the summer and maybe a god finish in the league will convince them to stay on

    Say what you want about Redknapp but I'm a little more wary about tomorrow night than I would have been if Ramos were still in charge.

    Isn't the majority of that Arsenal team the same as the team of "Kids" that we beat 5-1 at the Lane? Kinda nixes the arguments it was just a bunch of reserves...

    And how's that for irony? Arsenal supposedly have the transport infastructure, we have the traffic jams, and yet we get to the ground early, they're stuck in traffic and almost miss the 1 hour deadline! Laughing

    The control and vision were beautiful, but there will be - and have been - better goals this season. The free kick Hull beat us with is just one example.

    And Cesc Fabregas is a dirty cheating basserd - it looked like a slip from most angles by Bentley, but Redkanp's right, the slo-mo clearly shows Fabregas, nowhere near playing the ball, taking out bentleys foot as he turned. And then he not only plays on, but wins the corner. Their play had deserved a goal, and our defending the corner deserved to conceede one, but not with that in the build-up.

    Do they just train gooners to collapse when they trip over a daisy or get tapped by a falling leaf??? If that was a free kick then what was holding Bentley off in the build-up to theirs? Diabolical

    As, once again, was the defendingof the set piece. Evil or Very Mad

    Edit: OK, not all gooners, but Van Persie can't take 5 steps without falling over this half - bloody disgrace. Claiming a penalty because he couldn't reach the ball now. Jackass.

    Pavlyuchenko's got to go, though. He's too anonymous in this game again. Even Modric, who has been fairly non-existent, has got a few good touches in.

    Bloody hell!

    Very audible booing from the Arsenal fans at full time, pricks.

    Also how many spurs fans were left at the end? Tossers.

    Oh dear god YES!!!

    That has to be the best possible way to get the confidence we've been lacking. Brilliant game, some superb goals, so terrible mistakes and dear god but we would not let it lie! If you ever needed proof that a game isn't over til the final whistle, ort the benefits of following up every shot, this game was perfect for that

    I was thinking about last years Villa game at 3-1...that went exactly the same way score wise - even down to two last ditch goals.

    After my last post, Modric definately seemed to start wanting to get involved again, and Benty kept up the record of scoring due to defensive slips in the build-up (but that IS 6 for the season now - better than most!) but if I was Hutton, though, I'd be worried. Terrible game and some really key mistakes. You've got two other international rigfht-backs at the club. Right now it looks like the only reason he's in is because Corluka's doing quite well in the middle and Gunter is young.

    One last thought here....we've now played away to two of the big four - and drawn against both. Now bring on that 1500th win...

    Jenas basically has about 2 good games every year - home v Arsenal and Away v Arsenal! Wink

    Four in his last 5 derby games - great return for a midfielder.

    We've made a habit of these in the last 3-4 years. the 5-4 in Jol's first week, 4-3 v West Ham, 4-4 v Villa, 4-4 v Chelsea....I swear being a Spurs fan is terrible for your heart

    I do think that some of the stupid posing by Van diver and adebayor after the fourth, followed by a certain dutchman showboating may just have fired up our players a little. Clichy's slip can't be blamed - could have happened to anyone, but the finish by JJ that followed it was real class.

    Can't say I heard the booing come full time, we were all just too dejected to even let out a wimper. Not that I'm doubting it happened 'Stealer, but it definately wasn't audible where I was. Which brings me to a ickle rant before I get going. I understand that there was a tannoy announcement that the Piccadilly line was closed for a tad (due to some James Bond Bond Premiere being chosen to be organised on the same frigging night), but why leave a game early, some numpties leaving up to ten minutes early? It just makes absolutely no sense to me. Go settle in your armchair and buy that Sky Plus subscription, as there is no excuse in my book. Urgh.

    Onto the game itself, really it just confirmed what has been thrown at us from all area's of the media. We are defensively unstable, that we lack maturity, that we lack the ability to see games out when we need too. Hanson, Lawrenson, Shearer and co must be having a field day.

    First half performance was a joke. Bentley's goal was a joke. Lucky really that Tottenham are the one team who are as bad as us at set plays. The second half was great for 40 minutes, we looked up for it, we looked good. Could and should have had 7 or 8. And then they go and spoil it all. Clichy's error was a carbon copy of Birmingham last year, something I would have thought he would have learned from, to maintain concentration for 90 minutes. And as soon as the third hit the net you could feel the fourth coming in the air. Average Al gifted two goals tonight. Mad Jen's got dropped for less. It all boils down to consistency again, he was superb against Fenerbache, then pulls this out of the bag.

    We're not good enough to win this league, we weren't strong enough at the start and given the great inconsistency and immaturity we have witnessed not just tonight but over the last three months how can we have faith that we will win things? And that is it, we have to win trophies because if we don't what happened last summer will happen again and again and we will forever be contenders but not champions. It all seems to revolve back to Arsene's attempt to achieve the same policy in his latter years at Monaco, and it didn't really work there. And again it revolves back to this fascination with the Champions League.

    Oh well, at least the atmosphere was electric tonight. Hopefully it wasn't just due to Wenger's moan about support and more people in general getting their arses in gear. About time some certain others followed suit...oh and the game itself was a peach in highs and lows, proper footy.

    I get what you're saying Clarkey but we could also do with a captain who keeps the team switched on. In the past Adams and Vieira would have been yelling at everyone to concentrate. Even Gilberto kept everyone focussed. Instead we've got Gallas getting swept along in the premature celebrations and then falling asleep. Fix that and I reckon some of the problems will disappear.

    Who does Djourou have to sleep with to get a game? Silvestre is not, has not ever been and will never be a centre half.
