Losing to Posh last night made insignificant when compared to the Tiny Totts

5 comments to Losing to Posh last night made insignificant when compared to the Tiny Totts

    Can’t tell a lie I had a bit of a snigger watching Spurs last night.

    There was no doubt that BM were clinical and that for the first 10-20 minutes Spurs were very good but it soon became apparent that they were expended far too much energy in that opening spell and as it turned out after 60 minutes Spurs were spent.

    The speed of BM and the ease they got in behind Spurs was interesting but there clearly is something wrong and for me as a Chelsea supporter I can spot such problems from a hundred or so miles away.

    To be fair I doubt many clubs would have been able to keep BM down to just one or two but back to my point that Spurs are at a cross roads and their relative success in terms of reaching the CL final and a succession of top 4 finishes can’t mask the fact that going forward with a significant debt they are in need of serious investment primarily in defensive positions particularly with the ages of their two main CD players and for all the issues that Arsenal have had with players running down their contracts the issues are threefold over at WHL.

    I will grudgingly admit Kane is a top finisher but I don’t think his wider contribution would be enough to convince those clubs that could shell out a hundred million or so on him but Son is top top quality and will have suitors if he becomes available. My point here is that yes Spurs spent in the Summer on players who are struggling and just like Pulisic( yes I know he was signed in January) at ours and Pepe at yours none of the big money buys are even close to looking at being the players so much money was spent on getting them on board.

    Bad night for the media. Great tweet from Serge.
    More results like this and might even start believing those silly rumours around at the moment concerning our nearest and dearest

    The carrot waving rabbit is probably a metaphor for the local farm produce & the pests that dig it up.

    Dinos could become a pivotal CB for us in years to come, let’s hope he continues to make progress.

    G-n-a-b-ry

    I’d have to say this had been coming from Gnabry. Incredibly he was still an Arsenal player when he collected the 2016 Olympics football Silver medal for Germany where he was also joint top scorer. Then he was already in the German Senior team by Nov. of that year and last season he was BM 2nd highest goal scorer. Then you read here and there about how Arsenal sold him for crickets.

    The question is what if he had stayed? Would the keyboard (trigger) happy fans have been patient with him on Twitter? I think not. Good luck to the kid and lets be happy for him.

    Remember when Arsenal (Wenger) was legendary for getting players young/cheap and squeezing world class performances out of them……Adebayor, Kolo, Fabregas, Eboue & Flamini all joined Arsenal for a combined cost of less than 10 Million. Also remember that there were many other bargains (will name no names) that spectacularly backfired.

    Even big money moves are not always cut and dried, highly rated proven players can struggle in new league or even a new club in the same league (will name no names).

    Great post

    “To be fair I doubt many clubs would have been able to keep BM down to just one or two but back to my point that Spurs are at a cross roads and their relative success in terms of reaching the CL final and a succession of top 4 finishes can’t mask the fact that going forward with a significant debt they are in need of serious investment primarily in defensive positions particularly with the ages of their two main CD players and for all the issues that Arsenal have had with players running down their contracts the issues are threefold over at WHL.”

    I was enjoying last nights capitulation as much as the rest of the country, media excluded of course, but I said something similar to Mrs N.

    I think Poch has been over achieving for years. By that I mean he was getting far more out of the whole than the some of the parts. He was achieving more than he should of given his nett spend. But it’s hard, very hard to continue to do that. Eventually, no matter how good you are, lack of funds will find you out, and that is what has happened at Spurs.

    I always maintained that Wenger was, by maintaining a top 4 position, actually over achieving given a 10 year period of zero nett spend.

    Obviously given the abuse he got not everyone agrees but that was my view and why he had my unwavering support.

    I think Pochechino is a very good manager. Not a great manager. You cant be trophy less and be a great manager. But he maybe one day, but not at Spurs.

    They are, as you suggest, in a very similar position to that in which we found ourselves. They need investment but it simply isn’t there, or at least doesn’t appear to be, and what’s more it doesn’t seem to be there in the eyes of a lot of the players, hence their retisense in committing to the club, or it seems even the manager.

    Once the players sense the club is going backwards, on the pitch at least, players start having their heads turned, if just by their agent.

    Players running down their contracts. Where have we Gunners seen that before?

    Some might not like it, but the thing we had that Spurs don’t. The thing we had that remained constant and unwavering that Spurs don’t…….was a genius manager 100% committed to the club.

    Spurs are at a crossroads.

    They either find the money to boost the squad and convince both players and manager to stay, or face the consequences. Consequences that could be catastrophic.

    Of course I wouldn’t wish that on them.
