It felt as if we spent most of the first half watching Son pandering to the possession stat aficionados. Lots of the ball, but in achievement terms there was nothing there. Nothing at all.

Second half and eventually I said EVENTUALLY we got some reaction from Bochettino who clearly advised the Spurs traffic to take another route.ย That route was Harry Kane emerging from the shadows. Sensational, utterly sensational header.

Poch desperately needs to identify what he’s playing at with Christian Eriksen. One of the best players on our books yet he still can’t routinely dominate games.

I’m sick of ‘wondering’ about the commitment of Tottenham players. Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Son spend far too much acting like a Tinkerbell Tribute Act, opposed to putting the opposition to the sword.

To which end Lamela should have been on at half time.

Arsenal were a shower of eunuchs.ย Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a non-event. That said,ย Henrikh Mkhitaryan made Bummerorangutan look like a serious threat.

A great win for Spurs. Arsenal are finished, quite frankly.

My question has to be, can win some stuff before we’re also finished?!

    Arse should of scored at least one goal and us at least 3. They lack quality and I love It. We fully deserved the win.

      So similar too last season. Just couldnt score more. Cech was ridiculous at the Lane as well.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 10, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    Lakazette and Aubangayanngabang were caught offside more often than JD in his entire career.

    • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ February 10, 2018 at 5:16 pm

      Yes we played the high line very well. Its scary for me to think we have to rely on a linesman but we managed to snare the Arse forwards…

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 10, 2018 at 5:18 pm

        Yes its a dangerous game but it helps when their forwards can’t time a run. Lakazette had a nightmare.

  • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ February 10, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    Its very difficult to judge us today.
    We played the system perfectly and gradually wore Arse down.
    They played steady but Poch system was dominant all game.I felt that Dembele was so strong and steady and made the ball work for him.Norhing spectacular,not creative but he was huge for us in the middle
    Dele gave a great effort. Son was well covered and was eager to cop sometjing and tried hard but couldnt today
    Eriksen played the kanes well defensivly but we needed him to do sonething going forward. Kabe was ready and was able.
    Sanchez played a great game alttough a little pensive with the ball…and one hiccup…he is about confidence and will get more…Lloris was outstanding…Davies ok,Trippier like Son..trying…..Verts steady…Lamela added some energy…
    All in all the system was played exceptionally well a frustrated the Arse. It made them look very ordinary

    • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ February 10, 2018 at 5:12 pm

      Our players focused on the system.Full points.

    • Limerick AL. February 10, 2018 at 5:14 pm

      Yes Ron. Good Synopsis, the only problem I have with the game is the fact that we gave them a chance which was tantamount to farce.

      • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ February 10, 2018 at 5:17 pm

        Yes I agree but Sanchez made a mistake he had a good game though

        • Limerick AL. February 10, 2018 at 5:21 pm

          Anyone can make a mistake Ron, it happens, but we gave the oppurtunity as a team.

  • legoverlass February 10, 2018 at 4:32 pm

    A highlight of the match for me apart from Kane hanging in the air like Thor was seeing Wenger collapsing on the touchline head in hands as Lazarette showed his class by managing to miss an open goal…. sometimes pleasure can come from someone else’s pain… especially when it’s a Gooner.

    Well done today Poch, i thought he got it spot on and we dominated the the game. Not his thought Son had a shocker maybe left him on 15mins longer than he should have. 7 points from 3 really hard games i think maybe he deserves more credit from some.

    • Harry Hotspur February 10, 2018 at 3:53 pm

      He gets the credit that he earned.

      Lamela should have been on at HT. Son was hopeless. You can say that you know, doesn’t make you a bad person.

      Son kept passing to their lot. That DOES make you a bad person.

      • Arthur brain February 10, 2018 at 3:55 pm

      He was great today. Worked hard, hassled the defenders and brought others into play well.

      • HM Son February 10, 2018 at 3:32 pm

        No doubt he does his best but when you being compared to the likes of a Lamar and a Gerrard much more is expected.

        I will admit there is signs that he’s returning to his earlier billing.

        • Panama Paul February 10, 2018 at 3:33 pm

          I’d probably compare him to a lemur tbh.

  • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 3:25 pm

    I’d like to know if Toby is considered to be still working towards full fitness. Surprised not to see him in the squad. That said, for 85 minutes Sanchez looked comfortable but then struggled to stay focussed in the scramble at the end.

    • DAVID February 10, 2018 at 3:27 pm

      Sanchez was excellent today but he’s still prone to the odd clanger and it nearly cost us right at the end .

    • Panama Paul February 10, 2018 at 3:31 pm

      Hopefully he’ll start at Juve. I would be tempted to rotate Sanchez for this one.

      • gloster1861 February 10, 2018 at 3:34 pm

      Toby is fine, he isn’t NLD fit yet, that’s all. He had a serious injury.

    • HM Son February 10, 2018 at 3:38 pm

      I think it’s Poch policy for players to work themselves back in the team, the same way Wanyama and Lamela has to at the moment. I’m certain Toby will start against Juve.

    Yup, Arse are done as a player at the top table. Wenger will go in couple of years and they will have years of trying to establish an identity outside of him. Europa will be the most they can hope for over the next 7-8 years.
