    • I don’t know what counts as a ‘turnover’ but Gnabry definitely misplaced at least two passes in the 1st half and was dispossessed at least once that I can think of in the 2nd. Not knocking him but the stats are either inaccurate or pointless because they don’t mean what you assume they do..

  2. 0 – number of seats Spurs will need to allocate Arsenal fans for the ‘replay’ (after their petulant comments about seat allocation on their site)

  3. Arsenal played a man down for the last ten minutes. Must have been a huge Spurs advantage, eh? Can you break that out from the other 80?

    Or was the team size level at that point, since Broadway Danny was still on the pitch?

  4. Numbers don’t tell the total tale. We were dominant yesterday where statistics may suggest a closer game.

    Still great pic with Walcott holding up the only statistic necessary for those daft deluded mental Spuds.

    Like the price comparison of Gnabry to Soldado as Spurs continue to throw money to the wind.

    17+ seasons finishing behind us, 14 managers since. Rarely in the top 4. Rivals in north London? Your having a laugh. Pretenders more likely to the Arsenal.

  5. Pundits must be having a field day with their power shift in North London.

    Perhaps we need some stats for :

    1) how many pundits gave us a chance at finishing fifth this season.
    2) how many pundits were calling for Wenger to be substituted because he was dragging the club backwards
    3) how many pundits said AVB was a progressive force with innovative ways (like Brendan Rodgers)
    4) how many pundits said it was a bad time to play Spurs
    5) how many pundits continue to insist we have a lack of depth
    6) how many pundits have heard of Gnabry
    7) how many pundits still think there is a power shift in North London
    8) how many pundits still think no Arsenal player can walk into the Spurs team
    9) how many pundits still think Spurs showed ambition spending 100m on Bale’s transfer
    10) how many pundits are ex-Liverpool players

    Shocking to see the two pundits with some levity are actually ex-United players.

  6. Is Danny Rose just a smelly thing surrounded by pricks?

    Rosicky made him into potpourri

    Still he is a sp*rs legend on account of scoring against the great Arsenal

  8. Fierce mid-table rivals Man U and Sp*rs are battling it out for the title of The Biggest Comedy Club in the League.

    Only one club in the world can fashion a £30m player out of chicken shit.

  10. Phil McNulty still harping on about 8 trophyless seasons when Spurs haven’t won the title since the days of black and white TV let alone finished above us for 18 seasons!

    Always baffles me how these so called media experts are so quick to predict our downward spiral even before the transfer window shut last summer. They were going on about Spurs proving ambition with their 100m. Even after we paid for Ozil, they claimed it wasn’t enough and we had no depth.

    So it was a bit rich for Sherwood to prattle on about his lack of depth in his squad considering how lavish the media praise was about the quality of AVB and his purchases.

    It was a bad time to play the Arsenal.

    They said it was a bad time to play Everton who were on a magnificent run of form. We beat them.

    They said the same about Southampton. We beat them. They said the same about Newcastle, we beat them.

    Media pundits. Priceless comedy.

    • Actually we drew with Everton. Wenger purposely got a draw with them so that they can overtook Sp*ds and Manure. This shows how classy Wenger is.

    • In those 8 trophy-less years our beloved Arsenal have had a net transfer bill of over 200 million quid to the good while being in the top 4 of the table … and above Sp*rs in every one of those ‘lean’ years.

      Not bad … paying off the stadium debt and still living large in the 4 major competitions!

      • Not sure where you getting your figures from.

        We’ve had a net gain of about £1m on transfers over that period.
