Report: Arsenal 5-2 Sp*rs (inc goal clips)

192

Arsenal got back to winning ways with a 5-2 spanking of Sp*rs at the Emirates today.

The game started cautiously but Sp*rs quickly exploited some of Arsenal’s weaknesses. William Gallas had a 9th minute goal rightly ruled out for offside but a minute later they were ahead.

A ball over the top left Mertesacker floundering, Defoe ran on, took a shot which Szczesny saved (and probably could have done better with) and Adebayor was there to stab home the rebound from close range.

It might have been 0-2 a couple of moments later when Aaron Lennon fired a shot between Vermaelen’s legs and just wide of the far post.

It looked like it was going to be difficult for Arsenal to get back into it until Emmanuel Adebayor got himself stupidly sent off in the 18th minute. His studs up challenge on Cazorla is the kind of thing more refs should deal with like this, so fair play to Howard Webb for spotting it.

And that reinvigorated Arsenal who made the most of the extra man, particularly down the right hand side with Sagna and Walcott.

It was the latter who provided Arsenal’s first. Good work down the right ended in a looped cross, and Per Mertesacker made up for his earlier error, getting good power on a looping header which went into the top corner. 1-1.

Hugo Lloris was then forced into a brilliant save after a Giroud header and Santi Cazorla’s 30 yard shot dipped and swerved but went just over the bar. Lloris made another good save from Giroud before Arsenal went ahead in the 42nd minute.

With Arsenal pressing the ball came into Podolski in the area, he shot, it clipped off the heel of the penis of William Gallas, wrongfooted Lloris and bobbled in. 2-1.

It was 3-1 in first half injury time, when the effervescent Cazorla picked up a defensive header, ran at goal, was fouled, picked himself up and slid a great ball across the six yard box for Olivier Giroud to sweep home.

Sp*rs went to three at the back in the second half and had a bit too much of the ball early on, but never really threatened. Arsenal went further ahead on the hour mark with a sweeping move started at the back.

It began with a ong kick from Szczesny, Giroud won the flick on, it came to Walcott, he played Podolski down the left hand channel who then fired a ball all the way across goal and Cazorla finished with aplomb at the back post. 4-1.

“Adebayor, what’s the score?” sang the Arsenal fans who were clearly enjoying themselves. Right until the 70th minute when Gareth Bale pulled one back for Sp*rs, at which point every Arsenal fan on the planet had visions of another 4-4.

But after a bit of nervousness, and a wasteful Bale who could have provided Defoe with a tap in, Arsenal controlled the game again. Sensible football, sensible passing and they could have scored more.

Theo Walcott had two good chances, but couldn’t quite make his mind up either time, but late on he made it 5-2 to Arsenal after being set up by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Ok, there are always some things you can nitpick on, but a day when you’ve stuck five past the scummers is not it.

Three points, three lovely, delicious, making Chas and Dave cry points. Arsenal 5-2 Sp*rs.

Enjoy it!

70 – Bale goal

gooner for life

Gotta love Wilshere, I tought he was gonna puch Garath Bale in the face after Adebayor’s foul, why? cause he hates Tottenham

True arsenal fan he is, true fan.

Gerv

Great performance from him. Ramsey replaced him and how awful was he?! We were 3 up against 2 and he gave it to their keeper.

Lec

At no point was the scoreline 3-2 but yeah when ramsey came on, he was pretty shit.

A. Usmanov

Shut it blogs, he was shite.

Lec

Dear MR.ARSEBLOG.

Can you shut up and agree that ramsey was shite when he came, it will not make you less of an arsenal fan.

Lid

Ramsey had that good pass, but else? Remember how he lost a ball by not expecting players around him (they were just one man less not 10).
That resulted in very dangerous counter attack!
Arseblog you are really boring writing in ramseys favour…

paddymac

Walcott also gave the ball to their keeper when he was one-on-one and should’ve scored but no one’s mentioning that. Didn’t think Ramsey was too bad today, seen him play much worse recently.

Lid

Okej, paddymac what you are saying is Walcott is not so much better then Ramsey? We should let Walcott go, and be very carefull not to repeat this with our greatest talent of all – mental ramsey????
Hahhahahahhahaa…. very soon all the ramsey lovers will start watching reserve games cos that will be the only place where The talent will play for us!

AP

Better shut it, Lid. Your mom’s coming after you with a bludgeon!

paddymac

@Lid No, I’m saying that both Ramsay and Walcott made mistakes but some choose to use it as an opportunity to criticise Aaron Ramsey when he didn’t do a great deal wrong after he came on, in my opinion. Totally happy to give criticism were deserved, and Ramsay has been well below the standard we expect this season. But didn’t see him do a lot wrong today.

We beat the cunts 5-2, and people like you still focus on negatives. Do one.

paddymac

Heh

What’s the time?

It’s 5 past tottenham.

Are you sure?.

Yes, as sure as Adebayor redcard.

Thanks to Adebayor for being Adebayor, he really can’t help being a massive cunt hammer!

KidKnockout

I just remembered something, last season after we smashed the Sp*ds 5-2 we went on a 7 GAME WINNING STREAK!!!!! Let’s do that again UP THE ARSE!!!

critic

Last season v were in total control after conceding 2 goals. This term sPER-ed control d whole game. Its very different to last term.

Dr Baptiste

Is that the game just gone where we had more possession, shots and passes? Wow, I hope more teams control the game like that against us….. Pleb

Giroud's abs

Does anyone have the clip of Adebayor getting the cold treatment in the tunnel?

Arses

For me, it could have been colder.

Runcorn Gooner

In all the euphoria,and I am one of the happiest people on earth right now,the first
17 minutes were pretty scary at the back.We need Gibbs back double quick or some sort of organisation.Adebayor showed us all what a useless individual can really do to a team and thankfully we took full advantage ,in spades.
Make sure we tighten up in defence against Montpelier and we can put a nice run together.Other teams faltering today Everton,Newcastle and Chelsea as expected over a period of games plus WBA wont keep it going all season.
Time to put the foot on the accelerator.

neutral

I agree, until Adebayor was sent off I thought we were in for a serious beating, so strong was their domination. but I thought Arsenal played well offensively for a change. They are easily counter attacked, but at least they showed bite going forward, much more than in recent games. If that is more up to Spuds, we’ll see in the coming games. The Ox was very impressive when he came on and Walcott is looking worth whatever it takes about now, he could not do more to push his position, both with Arsenal and with potential suitors.

saw this on the bbc website
“Cazorla slotted in and although Gareth Bale drilled home to pull one back, Theo Walcott sealed the points late on.”

only with Arsenal do you seal the points by going 3 goals up in extra time…

Cazorla Magnus

Could Sky please relieve Jamie Redknapp of his pundit post? The poor cunt’s tight suits are squeezing any ounce of common sense he has left in that peanut brain of his. Cunt.

Oh yeah, thanks Adebayor, you made our job easier. Cunt.

Lec

I dont think adebayor realises that, being a total cunt that he is thinks that was a missed opportunity to break santis legs.

god, How pissed i was with that a-hole!!!!.

Eric Irish gunner

X spud and Liverpool cunt what do we expect

Lapidarij

There are no more Spurs after this!
Please refere to them as 5pur2, if you already not doing so !
They want that too, cos otherwise they wont be the only team in the league which are o.k. to play adebayor in their team!

5pur2 dr00L

Been referring to them as that, homie!

MJB

I was referring to them as 5pur2 last time this happened!
Don’t take all of my credit 😉

8hrs in work Monday. That 8 times I’ll be asking the cunts I work with for the time. Again.

Might even work late.

It will be always 5pur2!

I heard Santos and adebayor tried to switch shirts but the Wilshere slaped Santos so they didn’t! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Love Sagna’s cold shoulder and icy glare at adebayor’s advances in the tunnel; love wilshere’s unabashed disgust at the sight of any spurs player, particularly at his refusal to join in the friendly banter with bale

TGSTEL

Also, at the end of the game Bale was trying to be a nice guy to Walcott, Walcott just kept walking on.. nice to see that from little Theo.

!!!NEWSFLASH!!!

A vicious battering has taken place in North London, the victim a well known local tramp called Mr.Hotspur. Eye witness accounts report many vicious blows were landed upon the elderly victim who is now in crtitical condition. There are additional reports of an unshaven man beleived to be of Portuguese origin fleeing the scene with a notebook and poor reputation.

We thumb down when we waaaaant!

Just because they’re down to 10 men doesn’t mean its worth less. Superb offensive play by Arsenal. I hope we could gone on to be better from this result.

It doesn’t matter who our players are, what matters is that we beat tottenham! Up the arse!

Per’s header for the first goal had the same style and motivation as Bacs last year.

Sweet derby. Also loving Thierry Henry was watching.

And Big Sol! He’s a constant reminder of our superiority over our neighbours – he comes to us and we become invincible – Gallas and Adebayor go to them, one deflects in a goal and lets 5 past him, and the other gets sent off before the 20th minute 😉

MJB

That was wonderful! 5-2 again in front of the master, what a game. 😀

Haha brilliant! Now i know who AVB reminded me of!

RichieG

Lovely to see all 3 new signings get on the scoresheet. Giroud, I thought, was excellent throughout. And no matter that it came after a sending off – it was a much needed confidence booster for everyone at the club. Even better that it was against Sp*rs.

Gandalf

Thought this was our best performance for our front three, real fluid.

Matt Jarvis' Uncle

They all had three PL goals prior to today but thanks to Spuds they have four.

Hi5-2 all Tottenham fans also

NANANANA NANANANA GIROUD! LU LU LU LUKAS PODOLSKI! SANTI CARZORLA! BFG! AND THEO SIGN DA TING!

xxxrob

Really hope we keep Walcott but if I have to nitpick anything it’s the fact that at 4-2 we didn’t rest cazorla.. What does the little man have to do to get a break. Surely arshavin could have come on for the last 15 or so.
Great win none the less

kierangibbs'legs

Theo’s been immense, i think he will sign. Honestly speaking, he knows his roots, i think he could become one of our loyal players! Come on theo!

Dick Swiveller

I remember thinking the same thing last season when a certain striker who we stood by during all his injuries decided that meant bugger all, the only thing that matters is the bank balance these days. We’ll up our offer to Theo and make it rather generous for a player who hasn’t done much, but his agent will know that he can get more elsewhere so he won’t sign, giving the same old BS about ‘it’s not the money’.

Witoldo

Wenger is obviously trying to save Arshavin’s energy for the Capital One Cup. After all, in the last round, he was sprinting well into the 119th minute.

Giroud's abs

Only 5-2? Wenger out! But seriously though, Cazorla’s first touch and control throughout the game was just unbelievable.

RVP

congratulations Arsenal for doing it without me this time round.but you don’t say you did it against 10 men do you!? #kingRVP

Cazorla is awesome. We must re-sign Theo, play him up front with Geeeeroud.
I’m sure Theo would like to stay at Arsenal.
Hope this win gives us confidence too

kierangibbs'legs

This is the beginning of the recovery mate!

TG

If Theo would like to stay at Arsenal, he would have signed the contract by now.

Arsene's Nose

The Home fans were amazing as always….Good job guys

Up the Arse!!

gooner odst

Well done. This certainly papers over the cracks that the team have shown in the last few games. We still concede sloppy goals but at least now we know that we have the quality to trade blows with opponents now with Giroud’s airforce and Walcott’s supply. With Ox coming on later on it appears that we have a strong squad but theres something that stops all of them playing well when it isn’t a derby. I don’t know why that is.

On a separate note, i don’t know what Arsene has against Arshavin but i wonder if he would have put him on if we were losing or leading by a small margin.

kb

girouuuuudddddddddd!!! cazorlaaaaaaaaaa!!
lovd d game wilshere u rock dude!!
giroud is realy realy amzin striker he is
provin nw!! WE ARE BACK GUYS..WE ARE BACK

Santi's Class

Podolski, Giroud, and Cazorla all scored today. Great signings, and Giroud has 5 goals in 5 games. Red hot.

Lapidarij

Yes, they been fine but now we have to extend Walcott and Sagna and we still lack of players for the top!

mertesacker,podolski,giroud,walcott,cazorla
this is perfect.

WALCOTT DESERVES 100000 pounds per week

Glory Hunter

5 thumbs up to 2!
How apt!!!

furious arsenal fan

even podolski get 100000 pounds per week. WHY WALCOTT CANNOT GET IT

Lec

Cox he’s “consistent but only in patches”

That’s what a deluded arsenal fan will tell ya. I say we up the ante to 90k, he either signs then or fuck off to suarezpool.

Fatgooner

Take that, you cunts!

By the way, I’m not buying this “Spurs lost because Adebayor was sent off” bullshit. We started slowly but totally dominated the midfield after that first 20 minutes. Walcott and Carzola were sensational; when Theo decides to turn up he can destroy any opposition.

I loved what we did when it got to 4-2 after Bale’s goal. We didn’t panic and just played possession for 10 minutes – that took the sting out of Spurs and the game. Then we got the 5th, which was the icing on the cake.

This side, playing this way, is worth far more than the position we find ourselves.

kratoshes

you must have been watching something else mate. The slow start you are mentioning is the phase when tottenham were hunting like pack of wolves and when they scored. They looked confident bunch of cunts. Our defense were still struggling with movement of bale, lennon, adeboohoo and defoe.
as soon as adeboohoo got his red card for his utter cuntishness, those spuds lost the attacking impetus and like shark smelling blood in the water arsenal made sure adeboohoo’s effort was not wasted and taught spuds mighty fine art of finishing.
When bale scored 4-2, spuds were already tired and were one cunt down. If in such situation arsenal still had managed to panic and let the lead slip …I would have never ever mention arsenal or watched any arsenal game throughout my life.
yes arsenal did play with full gusto and outplayed spuds but red card gave arsenal all the momentum for arsenal to shove the game down the spuds throat.

Fatgooner

And people call ME negative!

Dial Square

You,ll get thumbed down for saying that, even though you are spot on !!!!!!! You gotta understand most people on here are about twelve and can’t accept ANY critism of the club warrented or not.

kratoshes

@fatgooner: please explain how am I negative where did I gave you a slight hint of being negative.

arsenal were never comfortable and in complete control until the red card…whether people agree or not but thats the fact…and if you still think the red card had nothing to do with our result of 5-2 then please forgive me for I must be watching completely different game.

diefenbaker

not today….
feeling the love all round…..
Too bad i couldnt watch the game. The pain..

neutral

I have to say that Adebayor was looking very dangerous and doing well with the ball, I don’t know if Arsenal would have played as well without the red card, but I don’t care. Nomatter how they recapture that fluidity I want them do it, and I want them to do it consistently. Also was awesome to get the same scoreline, I have not smiled so much watching an Arsenal game for a long time.

Mikkey3D

I remember a game not a long time ago where arsenal were 0-2 down and they finally won 5-2 against sp%, but i cannot remember any red card was given…
The best team won today!!!

Cheese

I think the red card did make a pretty big difference. Arteta has struggled in matches this season where he’s been marked by a physical player. Our game really didn’t get going until Arteta was freed.

5pur2 dr00L

Feel like Arteta’s still showing major signs of being overworked. Again, saw him doing a lot of hard defending work on the back end. Would love us to have another midfield option, because while I think Arteta’s an amazing player, we need some rest for him and Cazorla, since they’re both so vital to our strategy.

(Also, maybe Arsene wasn’t totally blowing smoke about Arteta having a hip injury concern.)

kratoshes

we should have brought in coq for arteta. arteta works his ass off every match and he did deserve to be taken off and rested while giving Coq some quality time in the middle of the pitch. There was not much of a pressure which Coq couldnt handle.

SG_Gooner

Of course the red card made the difference. But was that the only reason we won is debatable. There will be no way of telling that but Arsenal are usually able to do well offensively against Spurs because these games are so open. So I don’t buy this argument that just because Spurs controlled the game for about 15-20 minutes they were going to trash us. Basically, we just have to get our swagger back offensively. Even the invincibles leaked goals but they were so sure of scoring that letting in couple of goals did not faze them.

The only issue now is that our squad players are either too young/too slow/too injured/too careless/too mediocre that when injuries happen we lose momentum and end up having the annual end of season collapse. Also, keep in mind that in EPL now, most teams are a lot more tougher than during Invincibles era. So, there are very few easy games these days.

Kratoshes, I don’t think introducing Coq in this derby would have been a good idea. Offensively, Spurs are a very good team now and if Arsenal had put him in for Arteta and we ended up shipping 2 more goals, he would have been slaughtered by fans and media alike. I think Coq is one for the future. He needs to play a lot more COC games and in a derby where a 10 man team has nothing to lose a mature head was needed. Arteta did that brilliantly. Also, remember that Arteta did not have any friendlies to play mid week. Actually, I hope Arsene buys a DM in Jan to support Arteta.

Pak Gooner

I love Arsenal, and I’m simply adoring the football we played, and me and my fellow Arsenal fans here in Pakistan went mad every time we scored!I love love love you Arsenal, till death. Oh, amd my girlfriend loves Arsenal now too. Life is even more blissful!

First time posting, arsenal have been in the family since before my dad was born. My nephews are named charlieand george. Great result for us. I was just wondering if there has ever been talk of a charity game between the current squad and the invincibles? I know I would love to see it. And side note walcot had a stella game

arshavin

overworking carzola quite unnessesarily,it is now certain that arshavin is on his way out.

weedwacker

Theo and Ox V Bale show, a walkover to the Ox. The new guys scored and now they know what it all means. Giroud and Santi soooo good today. We can leave all our troubles behind and enjoy the day.

xxxrob

One of my favourite moments of the game was wilsheres turn in midfield in the first half before spraying it wide to walcott.. it was around the centre circle i think. If anyone saw or remembers it I hope you agree. Love that little guy!!

I practically had an ocular orgasm from that turn. Worthy of Dennis’ #10.
