Tottenham Give Arsenal The Brush Off

The way to conduct yourself when surrounded by speculation is to step out of the shadows and put the record straight. Today the club has done just that.

Arsenal have been desperately looking to restore order at The Emirates after the shock departure/expulsion of David Dein.

Damiem Comolli made a credible if not controversial contender to become Sporting Director at Arsenal. He had an excellent relationship with Wenger working as Arsenal's scout in France for several years before life in N17. Wenger made it clear after the game on Saturday that he would play a pivotal role in the new appointment.

Comolli announced today, “I’m in a great project here at Tottenham, building something for the future with fantastic support from the Chairman, the board and a great relationship with Martin Jol and I think we are very, very close to the top level of the Premiership so I don’t know why I would want to go somewhere else, especially as I’m enjoying it so much. What I’m doing at Spurs is with passion so, for me, it’s not even an issue.”

Well done Spurs for getting the statement out and getting rid of the speculation.

"Well done Spurs for getting the statement out and getting rid of the speculation."

Forgotten the Carrick affair already? Jol repeatedly saying he wasn't for sale didn't stop the media speculating.

Carrick never stood up and said he wasn't for sale.

Comolli just did.

Do you read english you prat?

He is putting this out to turn YOU lot down.

You write as if he had failed the interview.

Comolli. One m, two l's.

He doesn't say that he will stay regardless. He just asks "why would I want to leave?"

When Wenger comes along with the answer to that question, will he stay?

You blame us as opposed to giving your team credit for scoring? With support like that you don't need opposition.

Of course it's true. just like all those players that 'turned down' Arsenal to play for the mighty Sperz. And just like most people would prefer to drive a Skoda than a Rolls Royce.

Is there any Spurs fans out there who are embarrassed/ashamed with the sick chants towards Arsene Wenger (again) on Saturday. No doubt a few sicko's won't be, but I'd like to think there's one of you out there that is disgusted with it?

Anonymous said...

but Spurs are truly inferior - its not just 1 defeat in EIGHT years - check the stats.... how many defeats in the last 20 years, during which... 5 leagues, 5 FA cups... 4 Euro finals....

Anonymous said...

20 Years? TWENTY YEARS! Thats a whole generation of disillusioned spurs fans!

Anonymous said...

typical spurs, not enough brains to think of an original song so they copy one of ours sung to them!

also how many french players in your team now ?

if you want to try and get into the top 4 which is about the best you will ever get , get rid of your over rated media hyped english players

now watch out you dont choke like last year, this time for a top 7 finish to get you into europe or barbi toss will be off....
then the tears will flow at the lane!

Nobodys is going to take the Arsenal job because everyone knows that Dein will return

did you see the way the spuds players and fans celebrated AN EQUALIZER against the mighty Arsenal. what would they do if they actually beat us one day?
anounce a national yidish day ,
open top bus parade but a caravan instead of a bus,
freedom of that run down area called tottenham for the scorer of the winning goal plus a million£ bonus,
or as much lasagne as they can eat with bagels for life?

Odd the amount of gooners on Tottenham sites, Closet Spurs fans or just getting worried?

"Odd the amount of gooners on Tottenham sites, Closet Spurs fans or just getting worried?"

No mate.. its just fucking funny reading some of the shit you yids talk about... there only seems to be 5 topics of conversation...

1) Celebrating the fact that you got a draw at home to Arsenal...this actually speaks volumes for the gap between the 2 clubs...

2) The continual debate that you guys are only a few tweeks away from challenging for the league... maybe in 3 or 4 years, if the right players are brought in...

3) How Berbatov is the best thing since sliced bread... he is a class player sure... but the better he plays, the more attention he will get from bigger clubs... and then he will opt to move to somewhere he can get champions league football... there is already talk about man utd swap deal with saha

4) How Wenger is a pedo... grow up lads...it was mildly amusing, even for gooners, the first time round... but that was 10 years ago! Can you please think of a new one...

5) Forgetting reality... tottenham are a top 8 club currently... no more than that...some good players, but defensively a shambles.. come on...even when you went 1-0 up... how many of you genuinely thought you would keep a clean sheet? Or where you sitting there saying to your mates... we need another one to be safe... sort out your defence and you will move up a few places Im sure...

I hate spurs as you do arsenal... but loads of my mates are spurs so Ive had a fair few healthy debates shall we say...

anyways... if you want a debate, fine.. you want to slag me off... then you are simply highlighting what is wrong with spurs fans...

Good day

Spurs Fans / Arse Fans - We both love our teams for sure and if you actually live in North London it's difficult not to have mates who support the other team. Both teams have great fans and utter nob ends (one or two of you are here today I see). Personally I grew up supporting Spurs and it's great to see the good times returning, although we're still a few players and a bit of "attitude" short of being up there. Sure, for the past few years Arse have had a better team than ours, it's true, but many Arse fans that I know have consistently been embarrassed by the attitude of some of their players, not to mention the ungracious behaviour of their manager. Yes, the pedo chant is disgraceful, but he does do his best to wind everyone up. Wenger was yesterday called the most unpopular manager in the PL and it's easy to see why. Anyway - to the point. Spurs do have a lot of catching up to do as during the "Sugar" years we really missed the Premier League boat and our lack of planning showed itself on the pitch. Happily, I really believe we are now moving in the right direction - as we have different expectations, we're probably a lot happier with our season than they are with theirs - and it won't be long until we beat those Emirates mercinaries again. In the meantime I will continue to be happier to be a Spurs fan, because on and off the pitch our club conducts itself like men and not myopic, petulant, whining spoilt brats.

on the wenger chant and the amount of traffic on here from goons; part of the appeal of football is the opportunity for banter, part of supporting your team is to help give them an edge over the opposition, it was blatant to all this at the lane on saturday that the chant in question affected wenger - job done! secondly, the fact that so many of you tw@ts are on here suggests that you are more than a little concerned by our progress over the last couple of years and your regression!

If you genuinely think SAF actually wants to swap Saha for Berba that throws a big question mark over all the other sensible stuff you wrote!

Winning Mentality!!

Just saw the piece that Cerny did for czech tv regarding the run in for uefa places.

"People from the staff think 7 points will be enough, I personally think that 9 will be enough"

Maybe this sums up the attitude, IMHO I would of thought you'd go into games, especially these 4 games with the attitude of getting 12 points. If you go into a game already having discussed what a good result will be, your asking for trouble!
