  • Doesn't it seem suspicious how arsenal qualified.
    The only way they could was for spurs to lose as they have no chance of beating Barca.Was the food poisoning just a coincidence?!

    • It wasn't just players, Martin Jol & Chris Hughton both said they got sick too (I forget where I read that, but I remember it because I'd been wondering if it was just the players). It may well have just been people from the club though, the hotel haven't released details of any other patrons getting ill (although I guess they'd wanna protect themselves), which would be very strange.

      It's a horrible shame, but I do like the feeling hard done by!

    • lol who am i accusing?!

      and y so hostile? I was just adding some banter. I am actually not really bothered - i mean there is no way they are gonna replay the game anyway is there?. especially since west ham have a certain match coming up that they wont want interrupted.

      p.s. the quote was from the football365 website - i posted it as it was new info. Thought people might want to know. k?

    • If you want to be entertaind, look for some jokes on the net. But better not accuse anyone without evidence. You'll only get in deep trouble.

    • Yes but schwarzer, a good conspiracy keeps the treads more entertaining.

    • Now, jokes on a side.
      I honestly hope this is just a coincidence. If there would really be any evidence of a food poisoning on purpose, the consequences could be immense. Let's just think it was bad luck for the Spurs and wait until the authorities come up with a final result.

    • just read this on football365 under heading 'Tottenham To Demand Replay Of West Ham Game'

      'The idea of an Arsenal supporter penetrating the hotel's kitchens in an effort to derail their north London rivals in their quest for Champions League football is considered fanciful in the extreme,' says the Telegraph. 'But if it is eventually proved that the players were poisoned then the level of sophistication required to carry off such a crime would lead many to point the finger at a betting scam.'

      The sums of money riding on the game will have been enormous in the Far East, and the infamous incident of floodlight tampering in 1999's game between Charlton and Liverpool will mean the FA are vigilant about the possibility of such a scandal.

      A 'club insider' apparently told the Telegraph: "We had 25-30 people dine there and the only people affected were the players. That is too much of a coincidence. People are thinking in terms of sabotage."

      A Premier League spokesman said: "If someone has done something like that and there is hard and fast evidence, not internet chat rooms, then clearly it's something that not just ourselves but everyone in the game should be concerned about."


    • In football, there are no coincidences ... (LOL)

      But don't worry, we'll stuff them on the 17th. Promised.
