How Does It Feel, Arsenal?


How Does It Feel, Arsenal?

The Premier League table has a very pleasing and attractive look about it at the moment, for lots of reasons. But one the most enjoyable aspects of it, for me, is to see Arsenal sitting comfortably in sixth place with nowhere to go. You know; that place we occupied for season after season when we were not quite up with the best but a long way in front of the rest. We seemed to be in a league of our own; a league with just one team in it and it was a lonely place to be.

There are 11 more games before this season's exploits are completed. Tottenham are seven points ahead of Arsenal and enjoy a superior Goal Difference. The remaining games that both teams face suggest that this situation is unlikely to change when the final whistle blows to end the season.

How times have changed. We have just completed a master-class performance against our neighbours which was by no means reflected in the 1-0 score-line. 'For everything there is a season' has never been truer. Last season Arsenal were below us. This season Arsenal are below us again. The power shift in North London is no longer something to be dreamed of. It is now a very distinct possibility. Of course we need to sustain our position ahead of the neighbours in the coming seasons for it to become accepted across the broader football community but, from where we now stand, this is no longer the unlikely dream it was for such a long time.

Until last season, many younger fans have never enjoyed the experience of finishing above Arsenal in the league, and have had to suffer the jibes aimed at them by 'Red' North Londoners. For years Arsenal took us for granted and, given the comparative performances of both teams, it's not difficult to understand why. No matter how those years progressed there was always a cloud hanging over the Lane because of it. But now the sun has come out and the cloud has shifted down the road a bit!

Given the long history of our bitter rivalry with Arsenal, finishing above them, whatever else happens for the rest of this season, can be viewed as a successful outcome on one level at least. It could now be our turn to enjoy life the sun. How does it feel, Arsenal?!

Th player who I felt should have got MOTM was Delle, he really impressed me yesterday, not for his work with the ball as he can do all that sort of stuff with his eyes shut. No, what REALLY impressed me and why I thought MOTM was his sudden show of maturity, instead of getting in people' faces when he was fouled and brought down, he just got up without a flicker of emotion and got on with the game, along with a subtle lack of diving. THAT was to me the best part of the whole game as it bodes very well for his and Spurs' future, Delle's attitude. Someone must have had a word in his ear because he seemed like a different player. He deserves a lot of praise for this turnaround and long may he keep it up. Not too ecstatic bout the score as once again we squandered chance after chance, with 10 corners and 16 shots we NEED to score more in games like this if we are to challenge for the top spot next season. But this is a good solid foundation that can be built on, and with the new stadium things do look bright. Long may Delle's attitude change last and good for him. Nice one Delle and keep it up then you will do wonders. A bit of maturity goes a long long way.

Chris ... I agree with you about Dele and think he's shown a more mature side to himself in recent games, especially by exercising some self-control when he could easily have lost the plot. But I don't think anyone could dispute that Dembele was MOTM. He even scared the hell out of me despite him playing for my team and me sitting comfortably in front of the TV. He destroyed the Arsenal midfield to the point where they seemed to stop making determined efforts to get the ball off of him. I almost felt sorry for their midfield and expect that most of them will need some tender loving care and therapeutic counselling for a few days before they attempt to play again. Sad, really.

First derby I've been to for many years.Thankyou Wembley for having plenty of seats for all our fans .80,000 of us .Oh Daniel, have you made the new stadium too small? Dembele was magnificent,can't believe that some fans were calling for him to be transferred at Xmas! We had 5 Brits in our team ,Arsenal had 1.Can that be the reason we fought harder yesterday & our team spirit is so great. I think it helps to have a mixture of home-grown talent & foreign .You get the best of both worlds then.

Yes it was a good game for us. Dele self control, HArry's headed goal, Moussa strong in MF Jan and Sanchez in defense. Supported by Dier / Wanyama / Davies / Trippier / sonny / Ericsson /Lamela. Hugo had very little to do. So for Arsenal goalie to be MOM tells you we out played them most of the game. At the end Lamela stood up for himself against Wilshire, returning the little gobs***e verbals he deserved... F*** you P***y it has been mentioned by lip readers spurs fans... LOL...

The Gooners have a very weak spine: no beast defender, no mid enforcer and no A. sanchez. There is a lot of work to be done to get that squad back in contention for T4. Even if Wenger wins europa cup it's time for a change of manager in my opinion, that being said for spurs it would be better if Wenger stays.

Copied this from a gooner blog quiet honest i think. So much for the hopes that Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan could turn around the season. I titled my piece on the victory over Everton, “Another New Dawn”. We’ve had several false ones since the stadium move. For example, when the club signed Alexis Sanchez to join Mesut Ozil, it looked like there was some genuine team-building going on. Yet the following summer, Arsenal failed to sign a single outfield player. Leicester went on to win the title in the season that followed. And that should have been the final straw in terms of the board and Arsene Wenger, but finishing above a collapsing Spurs on the final day of the season gave the fans a happy ending and the fact the club had allowed a relative minnow to finish ten points clear of them was quietly forgotten. Arsenal were rank in a game that should matter to the players. There was no sign that it meant anything to anyone aside from Wilshere. And they played like it. There are eleven remaining Premier League matches this season, a League Cup Final and probably four or six Europa League games. Surely if there was any doubt that these should be Arsene Wenger’s final fixtures as manager, that should have been dispelled by a soulless display at Wembley in a unique North London derby. There really is no good reason to drag this out any longer than is needed.

jod, I think you've got this right. The club needs the largest possible stadium that will be filled every week. Nothing more demoralizing that a stadium largely empty. Empty seats are a sign of decay. Filled seats are a sign of health for a club. Clearly WHL was too small. Wembly too big for the years to come. 60 some odd thousand? Playing Spurs style should keep it close to capacity for years.

Firstly re the stadium, in virtually every game we have played at Wembley we have exceeded the projected capacity of the new stadium, fact, but too late now. Regarding how do Arsenal feel, the answer should be relieved and very fortunate, they could and should have lost by 4 or 5 goals, they were absolutely battered. If our finishing was up to the standard of the rest of our game we would score many more goals, as the stats show almost every week.
Frank

Frank, yes, but can this excess of capacity be projected 20 or more years into the future? Better full at 60 some odd thousand than 70 thousand in a stadium with space for 100 thousand. yes, 80 plus thousand for Manure and the Arse'n hole, but think about vs Sc@unthorpe in a few years or some other promoted team that no one has any emotions about. Stadium size is like the size of the portion of porrage, no too big, not too small, just right, like the momma bear's portion. NOthing is more demoralizing that an empty stadium on match day. A full stadium that could hold a few more is not demoralizing. COYS you old goat. (Greatest [supporter] Of All Time).

Frank .... I agree but the point I was trying to make was not that they had been thrashed in one game, but that they look condemned to the outskirts of the top six with no chance of CL football next season. We were in that position for years and were the subject of their jokes because of it. So, how do they feel now that the tables have been turned. Also, I think that a stadium accommodating 62,000 Spurs supporters is a perfect fit and will provide a consistently great atmosphere for all future games.

Just been reading a reporter's analysis of the importance of Dembele 'The Belgian is such a reassuring presence that you can almost hear the fans purr in contentment and the rest of the Tottenham Hotspur players breathe a sigh of relief when he starts a big game... Dembélé’s stature is such that the rest of the team can be whatever they want to be. The former Fulham midfielder surveys the pitch like a general counting troops. He puffs out his chest and strides among his comrades, exuding confidence. Dembélé is a no-nonsense midfielder; he does little that is flash but somehow we know he could be flash if so inclined. When assessing modern art it is easy to look upon a panting that comprises blocks of colour or random splashes of paint and assume that anyone could execute such a thing. Then you see the previous works by the artist in question and realise that they came to find their modernist perspective via the classical route, that they can draw an exquisite still life or capture the light of the sun rising over an ocean. Dembélé is like this. He is the enforcer who in his earlier years was more delicate, which makes him the enforcer who understands what it is he is enforcing. In Spurs’ case this means allowing youngsters room to grow and creative players room to breathe. Son Heung-min, for example, is a naturally upbeat player but he scuttles in and around the box with abandon in part because Dembélé directed him there or is loitering, ready to soak up any negative fall-out.'.

And some interesting stats:
46 Dembélé’s accurate forward half passes, the most of any player. Tottenham team-mate Dier was next highest with 38
96.6% Dembélé’s pass completion, the highest in the game
3 He lost the ball just three times, fewer than his midfield team-mates, Dier (14), Alli (19) and Eriksen (18) and Son (17)
92.6% Dembélé’s passing accuracy in the Premier League this season, the best of any midfielder.

We win the 'home' match v Arsenal, playing some very attractive, strong and commanding football. (As we did in beating Man U at home and drawing away to Liverpool). And, the only criticism of the team and performance that most of us can muster, is that we didn't thrash the Gunners and that perhaps we should have done, by 4 or 5 goals, at least.

And yet this was with a team that included players such as Dier, Dele, Trippier, Sanchez and Davies. Players that a lot of supporters have said many times, should not have played, should be rested, etc. Guys that are just not good enough or at least, as good as the alternatives. Or, as in Dele's case, badly underperforming and/or seriously lacking discipline

For two seasons running now and right up until just a month or so ago, I've been reading that Dembele is past it or that Eriksen never shows up for the big games and Kane and Son are far too often selfish. And, Hugo has been responsible for too many blunders and his distribution is pi$$ poor. And, Pochettino can't find a balanced team and doesn't have a plan b, either against the bus-parkers or the top 4 or 5 in the PL. Also, that Levy won't (never does) spend enough dosh and because of this the squad lacks depth.

Sissoko who? Llorente who?

Perfection, Focus, team spirit and a fighting mentality, it seems, have also been sadly lacking!

Not only all of this has been there to seriously hamper the team, the squad, the club but, that with having to play at Wembley all this season, it will prove to be much too tough for Spurs to cope. Because when (early this season and continued from the previous one), it was said to have inflicted some kind of voodoo on the team (the Wembley Hoodoo), and will likely prove to be a negative for the duration of the whole of this season too.

What is going on? What is now going right, with so much wrong?

Next up, Juve... I'm confident. Are you?

We're not going to win every game but most of the games we do play will find more fear and apprehension in the opponents than in this Spurs team. You called the Arsenal result very well when you said we thrashed them 1-0! That's exactly what we did. And for those who keep saying we don't score enough goals, have a look at how we compare to all the other teams. Mind you, we can never score enough goals .... which I'm sure Harry would agree with.

What a weekend it was. First of all, thanks for all of the suggestions about pre-game pubs. Couldn't get to all of them this time, but I have places to try on my next visit. The game itself was really a game of two halves. In the first half, we were very impressed by both teams' tactical discipline. It was a game neither team wanted to lose and both defended brilliantly in the first half. We restricted all of Arsenal's attacking talent to very little, but to be fair, we struggled to create much of anything either. The goal really changed things, and it came out of nowhere. I' m slightly ashamed to admit it, but I actually missed the goal. Because we'd been on the go all morning, I was really hungry. I hadn't had any time for breakfast, so about 3 or 4 pints in, I thought I'd better get some food at half time. I queued for 20 minutes to get some food, and as the 2nd half kicked off, I was 4th in line. I had a big decision to make: abandon the position and give up on food, or take the chance of missing the first 3/4 minutes of the second half, and actually stand a chance to avoid passing out. I chose the latter, and obviously that was tempting fate. Just as I was putting the order in, the stadium erupted... After the goal, the game really opened up and we probably should have scored 1 or 2 more. We were wasteful and the feeling in the stands was "we hope this doesn't come back to haunt us". It almost did. The final whistle was one of relief more than anything. After the game, the only thing I would have done differently, in MP's shoes, is use the final substitution in stoppage time. Any substitution made then cannot be recuperated, and had MP decided to bring Moura (or anyone really) on for the last minute, there's a good chance the last 2 Arsenal chances (Lacazette and Ozil's free kick) never happen. I still don't understand why MP is reluctant to do so. That small thing aside, brilliant performance. Our man of the match was Mousa Dembele for his overall contribution.

HT - men are fallible, what can I say... You go in with a plan, then it suddenly goes out of the window. We thought a pre-game beer would help settle the nerves. Still, had you given me the choice before the game of either watching the whole thing and losing, or getting the win with the condition of missing the goal, I still would have taken the latter! I'm just disappointed that the queue took so long. During the Liverpool game, it was much more efficient. Not sure why it was so different this time around.

Ahhhh! Bisto! Only us oldun's will remember that advert! So the gravy train that brought Boomerang from Dortmund and Nickamartian from United didn't pay off. They were supposed to be a step up in class over Giroud and Sanchez. Did you see any class on the pitch in a Woolwich shirt - Peta Cech was the only thing between us and a hiding for the Gooners. I am not sure Wilshre or Wenger were at the same game they said they missed too many chances in the first half when they should have wrapped the game up 0-3 by half time. Sorry? 1 Shot on Goal all game 6 shots vs 18 from them and two of those were from Lacadazical who missed both times! They are so up their derriers its not true! Well that it then! as we see Woolwich's life line finally cut from the mother ship ! all we can do now is watch them disappear into darkest space whilst we fight it out for another CL place.

HT good post @12/02/2018 09:00:00. I was thinking similar, thats not to say some complaints aren't justified, but many Spurs fans do go completely overboard, especially off the back of a couple bad results. We're not perfect (who is?), but in the grand scheme of things, we are doing well, from recruitment, to players, to manager, even to boardroom level. Ive been critical of Sissoko and still feel we can upgrade on him, but having seen what Chelsea fans have had to put up with in £40m signing Bakayokos crap performances, Sissoko doesn't seem nearly as bad.

Critical_Spur, interesting point re. Toby. On Sunday Supplement yesterday they were talking about Poch's press conference after the game. By all accounts Poch was in a really good mood, which you'd expect, but when one reporter enquired why Toby was not even in the squad he apparently bristled with indignation. According to the panel it was a routine question; the reporter wasn't trying to stir Poch. But the majority of them read into it that all is not well between Poch and Toby. And by all accounts he still hasn't signed a new contract even though it seemed a done deal over the Christmas period. Of course, there may be nothing in it at all. But if all is okay I would expect to see him in the squad tomorrow.

Did anyone else think the free kick just outside the box that Christian took was very cunning. Four or five Spurs players took up a position together in the middle of Arsenal's defensive wall and then moved aside when he took the kick? Not sure how the Arsenal players let us get away with that. It nearly resulted in a goal.

Have we forgotten how Levy can penny pinch ?.. By not giving toby his new contract until last minute Levy saves £50k a week for about 8 months..£1.6m plus bonuses etc.. so Levy saves around £2m. or more...LOL

It doesn't feel that good if I'm honest. Still think I should have been reflecting on a 5 goal hammering rather than a 1 goal loss when we could have nicked a draw! However, to say that the PL table makes good viewing when you are 5th??? Surely you are aiming higher than that? And trophies are what it's all about. You will not win the PL this season and are highly unlikely to win the CL so how many of your top stars will hang around past this summer (not many I hope). We the cost of the stadium soaring you will soon experience the hard years that we are just coming out of - limited money to really build a team that challenges and top players wanting to leave in order to win titles. If Arsenal finish 6th and you lot 5th does it count as a good season for you? Well played at the weekend all the same!!

GG .... Of course we're aiming higher. Have you noticed the remaining fixtures for the three teams (Ignore City) above us . When you consider their remaining games in relation to ours the table does make good viewing. We have every reason to be optimistic. It's a brave time for you to reappear. Apart from the football I hope you've been well.

I don't look at the fixture list anymore Geoff, other than to see how many games we have left before Wenger goes in the summer and we get a new man in. That combined with CL football from winning the European Carabo Cup will do me nicely for next season. Strong rumours that we are after Toby and then he could be doing a Sol this summer, would love him here! Going to be a real tough summer for you unless you get that 4th spot - vultures are starting to circle some of your players (Erikson will go I think and expect a massive bid from Real for Kane). Good overall thanks for asking! It's only football after all!! :-)

I don't expect you guys to end up in the top four but, as you say, there might be Cup success. I daresay, if Wenger goes (surely he must), you'll bounce back next season. I really can't see us missing out on the top four despite football being so unpredictable and, with CL football in our new stadium next season, I can't see anyone leaving .... certainly not 'our Harry'!

If Toby wants to win CL/ Pl why would he join the Gooners? Losing A. Sanchez is the nail in the coffin, your team is wack, and if you think your winning the Europa you need your head examined. COys

Palmover - and what exactly would a Spurs fan know about what it takes to actually win a trophy??? As you lot have so rightly said to us for years...."top 4 is not a trophy".

Geoff the issue is half about what the player wants and the other half about what the club can afford. The stadium will end up costing you about 800m, maybe even a little bit more. Both Kane and Erikson will have big clubs whispering in their ear - win big trophies and earn 250k per week. Spurs simply cannot offer them that. At the end of the day it's a competitive sport and a business and players will act accordingly.

Galway Gooner, don't get too excited about the idea of Kane leaving next season, he'll be at Spurs for a few years yet. As for the stadium restricting our spending, when have we ever been big spenders anyway? For the most part, we've surpassed your club on a zero net expenditure strategy.
