It seems Spurs fans are not the only needy hysterics in the asylum.

Ahead of the north London derby against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday, Wenger urged caution over likening the pair – although he was pleased Aubameyang has set such lofty aspirations.

“It is an ambitious statement but it is a good one. (Henry is) the best goalscorer ever in Arsenal’s history, so it doesn’t mean he will score as many goals but why not?

“I would say (Aubameyang is most like) Thierry Henry with his quality of runs. But it’s a bit too early to compare him to the best player ever who played here.

“He has played one game. But it’s a good example to follow. His finish was brilliant. His finishing is good. You don’t score by coincidence for so many years, if you score many goals.”


Spurs look to put seven points between themselves and the Gunners this weekend, Pochettino believes his players have now fully adjusted.

“Of course, it was difficult at the start,” the Argentinian said. “It’s like growing up in a certain house for 20 years and then moving.

The task for Pochettino is now to ensure Tottenham head to their new stadium as a Champions League club, with one point still separating them from Chelsea in fourth.

      Our bench is looking stronger each game. Toby to be included as well

  • Syd February 10, 2018 at 11:30 am

    If there is one player I can’t stand in this Arse hole team is Monreal. He will whinge all game long…..rush the referee asking for yellows for our players and whine about blatant fouls. I hope we kick the crap out of him….

      Koscielny for me.

    Aubameyangs Work rate – Not the first time this has been noted and it won’t be the last but he lacked vigour with the game drifting him by for large parts.

    Overall impact – He just didn’t do enough to get on the ball when Dortmund were clearly struggling to get service to him. Aubameyang is far too reliant on the players around him performing.

    VERDICT

    Quiet game by his standards and given how starved of the ball Alexandre Lacazette has been at Arsenal, it will hardly be comforting to see Aubameyang prove equally as ineffectual without quality service.

    Dangerous when he can split the defence or get behind it, Spurs will not afford him such luxury.

    We are 11 hours ahead of you guys. It was a great game. We played exceptionally great. Lamela the winner but I won’t give away the score.

  • SpurAndy 🍒π February 10, 2018 at 10:36 am

    I think his statement explains why he apparently wasn’t popular in the Dortmund dressing room at the end. Hope it continues.

    • Syd February 10, 2018 at 10:38 am

      what was his statemnt Andy

      • SpurAndy 🍒π February 10, 2018 at 10:46 am

        Erm, I think it helps if you read something properly first 😳. I thought he was comparing himself to Henry when in fact it’s Wenger doing the comparing I think. Sorry bout that. Still, he did leave Dortmund on bad terms so hopefully he hasn’t learned any lessons.

        • Harry Hotspur February 10, 2018 at 11:01 am

          Yup, it was Wenger.

          Just like Pocho McBotch likened Edwards to Messi…

    UPDATE ON OUR HALIBUT.
    Just to change things up a bit in the room. Our good friend Tim aka Halibut provides the following re his health:
    “Right now the chemo drug Carbozantinib is doing its job and is stopping the cancers from growing. The side affects are pretty ordinary but hey ho, just have to keep pushing . I have a full body CT and brain MRI next week”.

    He’s a good man is our Halibut.

    • Gus February 10, 2018 at 10:13 am

      Good to hear he’s keeping up the fight!

    • Harry Hotspur February 10, 2018 at 10:26 am

      Bless him and only ever sending him and his family positive vibes.

    • Still Nil Nil February 10, 2018 at 10:27 am

      He’s a brave man, a far better man than I could ever be.
      I aspire and look to people of his ilk.

      Keep smiling Tim.

      And thanks for that Syd.
