    Do I sense a Powershift in North London ?

    Poor old Talksport will be getting their nickers in a twist tonight. How on earth are they going to turn that little lot into a night of Arsenal bashing ? I’m sure they’ll find a way.

    Oh I forget, they’ll be too busy wetting those nickers over Liverpool tonight.

    Liverpool deserve their win though. I will revel in the small joys like this week with Arsenal. 🙂

    I don’t dispute that, it’s just that the media have been wetting their nickers in anticipation of this title since about 1991.

    Here is what our neighbours coach said after VAR made a decision cancelling a Sours goal

    “We have to be mentally stronger to cope with what happened during the game,” Mourinho said. “We cannot mentally die after Michael Oliver gives a decision. I know it is very difficult to take but we have to be stronger. I know more about the profile of my players now and at half-time I feared we wouldn’t be strong enough to cope in the second half.”

    I mean….come-on…and all this time Arsenal are a weak team etc etc ?!?! This is what happens to the Gunners most of the games…. nice to see you having to eat the same rotten PIGMOB pie once in a while – and I did not see the game, so no idea if the ruling was ok or not. I don’t even care. Just fun to see it happening to them.

    Funny thing when you think about it…Leicester and Spurs suddendly not the darlings of PIGMOB anymore….

    Table looks suddenly different… lots of climbing ahead. This is turning out to be an interesting season. I’ve got that feeling that our Gunners are getting into it.

    Any handball, deliberate or accidental, in the build up to a goal means the goal MUST be ruled out.

    In the build up to the Spurs goal there was an accidental handball by a Spurs player as he fell over. What made it particularly galling from a Spurs point of view was that the reason he fell over was that he was fouled. The referee played a good advantage and Spurs scored.

    But unfortunately there are no exceptions. Hand ball is hand ball.

    Oddly enough Man City just had a goal ruled out against Liverpool for an equally unfortunate hand ball in the build up to what would of been their 5th goal.

    On the face of it both are harsh but personally I like these non subjective rules.

    One thing you know is you are not being cheated by the officials. You may of been unlucky but you haven’t been cheated.

    There was an interesting debate about it at half time between Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness.

    Redknapp was incensed saying it was ridiculous and the referee should of used his ‘common sense’ and the goal allowed.

    Souness said, nowhere in the rules does it say the referee should use his ‘common sense’, he HAS to apply the rules, which he did. Exactly.

    At which point I’m sure Jamie’s bottom lip went. Ahhh.

    You also mention this from Mourinho

    “We have to be mentally stronger to cope with what happened during the game,” Mourinho said. “We cannot mentally die after Michael Oliver gives a decision. I know it is very difficult to take but we have to be stronger….”

    Can you imagine what Talkshite would of made of this if it was us ?

    And as I pointed out above, our diabolical defence is somehow not quite as diabolical as either Spurs or chelseas.

    I’m extremely confident someone is going to come on here and show me how Spurs diabolical defence and mental capitulation have been torn apart all over the media.

    Nitram,

    the irony escaped most readers… and I thought the same thing. If Mrrs Wenger, Emery or Arteta had stated something like that, it would have been one hell of a s..t storm.

    Anyway, their loss and subsequent perspective of St Totteringham Day may my day !

    I see that our FA Cup semi versus Man City will be broadcast by BT.
    I thought the BBC had permanent rights to broadcast FA Cup games, especially the semi finals and final.
    In any case, the BBC has a far wider audience than BT and therefore should, in my view, be the broadcaster.

    I await somebody to start an online pettition for Arsenal fans requesting that all home games to be played in an empty stadium. You know , seeing that this seems to motivate our players !

    Of course , there will be an initial loss of income , but we would save on policing , other matchday costs and maintenance . Without crowds , the chances of the statues being defaced is also reduced.

    Since we have millions of fans worldwide , I’m sure most of would be willing to pay directly to the club to watch our team play. Why should we pay those stupid commentators and so called experts ?

    I for one never learned anything of interest from any of them. Let them get a job suitable to their telents , which is zilch !

    @Brickfields Gunner,
    I’ve read somewhere that home games reap £3 million.
    If true, I can’t see the men in grey suits missing out on that sort of income.

    Did anyone listen to Talkshite last night?

    If so:

    Did they have a night of Tottenham bashing?

    Did they have Spurs fans calling/texting in accusing them of being ‘Gutless’ ‘Bottlers’ ‘Worst team we’ve ever had’ and proclaiming ‘Player x not fit to wear the shirt’ ‘Sack the manager’ blah blah blah?

    After all it’s Spurs that win f*** all.

    After all Spurs have had as many, if not more embarrasing capitulations as us.

    NB: To Spurs fans who may read this. It is NOT Spurs I am having a pop at. I admire the way your club is trying to be run on a self sustaining basis similar to us. I realise you are hamstrung by building a new stadium similar to how we were. I believe given your budget you do pretty well, without actually winning anything, as did we. It’s the medias polar opposite take on you compared to us that riles me.

    So if anyone was brave enough to listen to talkshite let me know just how they and their fans tore in to spurs.

    @ nicky – If our fan base is as large,with a hard core foreign base , we can be able to use our home games tv rights directly to them.
    I have always steadfastly said that I will subscribe directly to the club to watch these home games.
    I am hoping that some Kerry Packer type individual pull the rug from under the tv companies .
    The time is nigh .

    I had been contemplating coming over to watch the Watford game which was supposed to be in May. A nephew of mine was to be married the day after, and he dangled a free ticket to the match to entice me!

    But this Covid 19 ended my dreams.
