Tottenham vs Arsenal: Team Predictions

Harry Hotspur rejoins the mainstream this week and opts for a team of only eleven to face the Woolwichmen.

This selection is based upon the need to meet the challenge head on. Spurs will need pace, ingenuity and wit to counter this lot. I believe that BMJ will exercise what he percieves as greater caution and we might expect to see him start sans Taarabt, avec Malbranque.
Here goes:

Robinson

Chimbonda Dawson Kaboul Lee

Lennon Jenas Taarabt Bale

Berbatov Keane


Subs: Various.
As a post script, I trust that Robinson's excellent showing against the Russians last night has boosted Spurs fans support but reminded him that he's actually not rubbish.

the gooner above should be ban for life!

That's gotta be a ban ol' Harry boy!
What a wanker!
Robbo, Chimbo, Lee, Daws, Kaboul, Lennon, Bale, Jenas, Thudd, Keane, Berbs. That will be the team.

the truth said...

Oh no, please don't ban me. I love coming on here chatting to you little lovelies.

Maddog said...

Not bad HH, but I would swap Zokora for Taarabt just to give us that extra bite to close them down.

we will have the same team as harry but he will haev huddlestone in for taarabt, because we would need a defensive mdfielder against such an attacking team not to say tht i wouldnt be delighted to see taarabt play he would scare the shit out of them

the truth said...

Is that "Celebrating 125 Glorious Years" thing a joke??

Anonymous said...

Great team Harry, would certainly show a sign of intent. But with Kaboul every now and again thinking he's Beckenbaur I think I'd feel safer with Huddlestone in front of him rather than Taarabt.

I think KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG should be given a chance instead of JERMAINE JENAS.

Anonymous said...

think there is a good chance that Taraabt wont even make the bench if lennon plays. Lennon wont last the whole game so Malb will be replacement sub. Cerny defoe bent + a defender will be the others. No room for Taraabt.

What is "the truth" on about? It would be a mistake to play no flair cunt AND no flair cunt in midfield. Personally I would've gone for Useless Cunt as his partner instead for the "biggest game of the season."

Anonymous said...

7:52 - thats a quality line up!!

i still want to see bale at left back, with taarbat on the left wing with boateng and thudd in the middle.

any one any ideaas when KPB will be available for selection?

whats chimbo been up to? apparently been arrested for football corruption according to the independent.

exciting times

"My prediction for the Arsenal team
11 Gay cunts,with 5 other Gay cunts waiting on the side to join them , with 1500 spineless w*nkers sitting in the stands bricking themselves about coming out of the ground
Oh and a kiddie fiddler manager"

Spurs lose to 11 gays on Saturday then! And you are so hard scaring 1500 when there's only 28000 of you!

BTW, the "125 glorious years" is the best Gooner post I've ever seen - classic!

SoPoor said...

Well Chimbonda won't be playing, he's in jail so you'd better find another muppet to take his place.

i see a few gooner retards have already started the silly bollox....still its nice to see that they are on this site for once rather than downloading kiddy porn somewhere else the dirty mongrels

Why on earth is there so much Arse nal verm on this site today!?

I don't think I have ever been on one of their sites.

They must have thoroughly too much time on their hands due to their shit jobs and must be absolutely shitting themselves. Brilliant.

As much as I would love to see Taarabt stick one on Fabregas in the first minute I don't think he'll be in the Squad. Zokora will play.

Anonymous said...

Your site smacks of double standards......

Firstly a Gooner has their comment taken off the blog for being offensive, then you allow someone to post that we're a team of 11 gays and our manager is a kiddy fiddler, Typical Spurts wanker!!!

And more importantly at the top you've put "125 glorious years"??? Shouldn't that read "5 glorious years (but none of those years are in the last 20) and 120 underachieving bad years"???

Or maybe I should be banned ???

I agree with you Scooch, I don't know what the first post says but the one from a fellow Spurs fan can't be much more offensive. Hotspur, take it off there's a good fellow...

Just to get the juices flowing, and though I'm sure there are many postings on you tube that could be highlighted. This one is a particular favourite... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtZIYjhNCCU

meesterlee said...

The 125 Glorius Years is related to the glorious style of football played at White Hart Lane. I agree it is slightly inaccurate as there was those 3 years of shite between 1998-2001.

Arsenal on the other hand have had 109 years of long ball shite, followed admittedly by a fair few years of something reminiscent of the Spurs model - Pass & Move...

Anonymous said...

Oh pretty please play the team that the know-nothing goon at 10:13 posted.

Back to the good old days eh? 0-0 is not a defeat as Don Howe used to say. Oh howe he was right, he was proper arse.

One up front and make matters better, it's Adabayor. Brilliant. I have tears in my eyes.

Good to have you goons here to give us all a laugh.

In all seriousness, do you think you will ever lose that tag of being the most horrible football side in the world pre-wenger?

What was it Cruyff said? Oh yes..

Arsenal are not a football team. I don't know what they are but they are not a football team.

In

berba had a gash across his face during the bulgaria game. I don't think he'll be playing Saturday. what a curse, indeed!

Guys, the team has to be

robbo, chimmi, dawsy, kab, lee followed by bale jj, zaks (not tommy the bomb) and mal-b. with bent and berbs. this way tommy the bomb and lennon make a big impact if/when they come on. if u start tom and len then zaks and malb are not good enough impact subs. the key to us winning is to pin the scum back! im crapping it already!

Anonymous said...

Harry,

Whereas I appreciate that the "C" word should never be used that many times before breakfast, unless, that is, it's not a pretty shitty breakfast. I don't appreciate the homophobic slur on our players (at the risk of sounding too pc) and far more importantly I abhore the fact that one of your contributers decides that one of the world's greatest managers of recent times is a "Kiddy Fiddler" due to the fact he has one of the best youth systems in the world.

I realise this post must sound a bit politically correct so let me just say one thing...........

WE'RE GONNA KICK YOUR ARSES ON SATURDAY AND THEN YOU'LL ALL DISAPPEAR OFF THE NET FOR A FEW DAYS LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO!!!

I'm still amazed at the amount of vitriol spewed by gooner scum on our site. They are so bored with the foregin players and peado manager in their own club, that they have to spend their time (between shaggin their own family)searching for spurs sites and slagging us off. Lets just see what happens on Sat. I'd like to think they would have the balls to get back on here if we beat them, I can't see it. A gooner with backbone??? Unlikely, I know. I hope it's a good game and I wish all the gooner luck in fathering their own son/daughter/neice/nephew, etc etc

GRAZZA said...

Scooch -

"due to the fact he has one of the best youth systems in the world"

I assume you are a typical armchair/computer chair goon who has a "Youth System" confused with nicking young players from other clubs. As far as i am aware the "Arsenal Youth System" has produced David "Mr Popular" Bentley and thats about it????

Double Standards? From the club who banned national flags from their stadium because it causes offence? well then maybe they would like to take down the emirates signs, take down the pro Israel signboards round the pitch and re-name the ground (then preferrably allez back to south london) before that causes offence! Oh hang on - how stupid of me - they get paid for that dont they? That, my goon friend, is double standards

See you on Saturday - or maybe not.

the great thing about going to White heart lane is that you can almost get a refund every time with all the coins chucked at you outside the away end. Oh yeah, on my first visit to the lane ( aged 12) I, my brother (14) and my father each got hit in the face by Spurs fans in their 40's. Then there was the time we won the league in 2004. We had to wait in the stadium for over an hour, then have a police escort all the way to Tottenham Hale station because of angry Spurs fans waiting to attack us outside. You're a horrible club and its no surprise that all London clubs feel the same. Also, I find the way that you define your season's objectives each year in relation to us hilarious! I couldn't care less where Spurs finish...I concentrate on our own success.

SCOOCH

Are you still bitter about not doing so good in the eurovision song contest? And you question the homophobic angle on here eh SCOOCH? ya just gotta laugh.

Perhaps your a bit tender after getting roughed and erm.. beaten by the jocks. (usually an enjoyable experience for you i guess)

Can appreciate you thinking that there is a slight spurs bias on here, but the thing is its a spurs sight.
For a view without a slant just ask mutual fans what they think arsewipes and without a shadow of doubt the overriding opinion will be that you are in all sincerity a bunch of CHEATING, NASTY, VILE, SPITTING, CUNTS.

Hope that clarifies things

Harry Hotspur said...

I have to say that and I'm guessing here .... that at the time you were attacked it was probably the case that you could've well recieved got the same treatment from from many many club's supporters.

There was a 'golden' age of hooliganism as we all well know and few clubs were exempt. Even yours.

So whilst I'm sure no one looks back fondly at being thumped it's a bit disingenuous to brand Spurs hoolies 'King of Streetfighters' when so many were doing the same.

As for the all London clubs viewing us as horrible, I'd have to argue that you're way off beam there and in fact are just trying to emphasise YOU don't like us.

Perhaps if you'd had a run in with West Ham or Chelsea you'd have typed your comment with a stick in your gob or at least a Stanley knife mark on you somewhere...

That would be genuinely horrible and not an embellished whinge based upon a common enough event 20 years ago...

shanemac said...

If Defoe makes an appearance at all this game, I'm going to tear out what little is left of my hair after last match. Likewise if Jenas shows up flat again. I think we should leave him off altogether and let taarabt get the start alongside Huddlestone, but that might be too young a pairing in the centre midfield. In any case, I'd like to see Zokora come on around the 70th minute to apply some pressure and to break up Arsenal's rhythm, as we know those mad 40 yard runs into the box can. Unfortunately, they also leave us vulnerable to counterattacks. Controlling possession in the midfield is what will determine this match. We all know what the Berbatov-Keane pairing is capable of, and the defense looks solid. I only worry that chimbonda won't have his mind on the match with all the allegations against him at the moment.

Well, here's the Dannyboy; vitriolic though? erm, JGM is your man!
Quite sad really to see a bunch of South London Nomads, because after all that's what they are, on here trying to berate the most loved set of supporters in the world. Spurs and proud mate. The Scooch's Eurovision failure comments make me chuckle; nearly as much as watching the Scum lose to Barcelona.
The season starts now as far as I'm concerned; let battle commence.
Anyone know any Scum blogsites we can mass invade on Monday after the Lilywhites spank their Paedo arses ? See you back here Monday Scoochy for a right virtual pasting.

Harry, it was not 20 years ago...it was 1999 when we beat you 3-1- Kanu scored the 3rd- not a golden age of hooliganism. I've never experienced any such problem with any other London club...I'm serious. Spurs fans are just very aggressive and quite intimidating..Its aggression based purely on jealously because you haven't achieved anything. I don't hate Tottenham...in truth, I don't really consider them much. However, there must be something seriously wrong with a club that uses "Yid Army" as a legitimate nickname...a term of abuse to Jews and just plain offensive. Good luck for the match on Saturday

Fair play for responding.

I was as I said guessing the era.

The 'use of the 'Yid' word discussion' accross the board isn't complex, but it is boring...

All I can say is don't be distracted or read too much into it. Perhaps you aren't Jewish. Harry has met one or two that really don't mind the term at all.

Good luck yourself for Saturday. I am genuinely unimpressed by what happened to you.

3-1 to the Tottenham this time though...

Michael said...

My oh my! Yet another claim that Spurs fans are a bunch of offensive Jew haters! Well, guess what, we're not! No really, I mean it!

In modern times (i.e. today and for the past....oooh....20 odd years!) we have adopted and used the name lightheartedly for God's sake (or is that Jehovah's?)!

It's not an insult and any Spurs fan will tell you the same - unless they've got a PC stick up their arse!

It's only the likes of you '6:40' that WANT to twist it's modern day meaning to something hateful.

And why are you sticking up for him HH? IF what he said happened DID happen, then of course it's out of order.

But he's trying to tar ALL Spurs fans with the same brush and for that he can go jump in front of traffic for all I care.

Thanks Chris, thats the kind of dynamic, insightful note taking we expect from you (and in no way is it just plagiarised from the Arse Official Website)

"HUGHTON'S NOTES
Chris Hughton's regular assessment of our forthcoming opponents - next up, Arsenal at the Lane on Saturday.

ANY TEAM would miss the qualities Thierry Henry possessed, but I think responsibility spreads around the team that little bit more and it gives other players room to flourish and in the likes of Emmanuel Adebayour and Robin Van Persie, Arsenal have those players. They both have very big futures.

Eduardo De Silva has come in having scored lots of goals for Dynamo Zagreb Croatia and they will always be a threat up front.

Arguably their most consistent player over the last couple of seasons has been Kolo Toure at the back. Phillippe Senderos is suspended, so I’d expect Gilberto to partner him.

Bakari Sagna has come in at right-back, Emmanuel Eboue is also there and Gael Clichy has fitted into the Ashley Cole role without people noticing.

In midfield, Cesc Fabregas gets better and better and then it’s about who plays in midfield with him if Gilberto drops back into defence. They have options in Mathieu Flamini, who has had a lot of involvement, Vassiriki Diaby, Lassana Diarra, who they signed from Chelsea and Denilson, who they tend to favour in wider positions. On the wide positions they have Tomas Rosicky, Aleksandr Hleb, Theo Walcott, so they have good options.

We go into this game with the excitement of wanting and trying to win it. There is a big feel to it and there would be nothing better than to give the supporters something to shout about on Saturday"

daytripper said...

I'm a bit late to the show - if we play Lee and Bale on the left Arsenal will kick our asses.

Gotta play Steed on the left for his defensive skills, and put Bale back at LB.

Can't take Tommy out of midfield, before he started playing we had no creativity and were struggling to push the ball up the field. Jenas has played a lot better too without the load of having to be the main player to kick start the offense.
