Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I think people trying to downplay Man Utds game against QPR are wrong personally. What I saw was a team playing like it was a cup final, and I think they would have found a way to outscore anyone that day. If they play like that every week it will be just like Liverpool last season. Through dominating possession and fighting to win the ball back they made look QPR look clueless, although they did have a couple good moments on the counter, in the end QPR were fortunate not to concede 6 or 7.
I think its early but feel safe to say that their new signings look like the correct ones. Rojo looks like he will do very well in the prem. Di Maria is also made for the prem and linked up well with Rojo. Blind did everything Carrick does but better, and Herrera looks like the engine they have missed since Fletcher first got injured, except he has more technique/quality. Shaw still to come who was the best left back last season, Rafael made a big difference at RB and this formation meant more numbers in midfield, so less defensive work by Mata allowing him to do what he does best. I said before, Rooney doesnt like to be the main man as proved in the days of Tevez and Ronaldo, he excels when he has better players alongside him and I think well see a much more dangerous side once Falcao settles in and Di Maria starts to fulfill Van Gaals 'Robben Role'. The early signs are promising.
The joke has been on United for a while now but something tells me they will have the last laugh, top 4 minimum this season which means either Arsenal or Liverpool will have to go. Van Persies body language might be a worry but with the options they have they could be forgiven for not worrying/caring.
Nice and tanned and ready to go to the first derby game of the season. (see the new avatar)
Lets hope Wellbeck's confidence grows towards the Utd clash in November. My tickets are ordered for that one!
John the way I see it is that we can (and have to) analyze each game very much along the lines you did, looking at the positives (possession) and the negatives in ability to break opponents down as a result of slow ball movement from the back and individual errors (Flamini cost us a goal against City and Spurs - and yes I like him and his attitude and still prefer him over Arteta but not as much as last season, and we need a higher caliber DM as a starter).
But the fact remains that we are dropping points like a sieve. Man U, by some considered to have had a poor start is only 2 points behind us and Chelsea is running away quickly. They will probably beat us next week without too much trouble.
Our short comings don't seem new to this year, wanting to walk the ball into the net, conceding on set pieces, vulnerability to speedy opponents, good games followed by poor games, no game plan other than forced by injuries.
When I look at things in this context I think we are in pretty poor shape with little chance to expect major change.

Last heard on the Arsenal board grunting an apology....

Independent News; Article by Jack Pitt-Brookes.
Danny Welbeck felt a sense of vindication Wed. night after scoring his first hat-trick.........
Welbeck has scored 6 goals for club and country since £16 million move from Manchester. When asked about his goal scoring record Wed. night ...the England International said criticism didn't matter if they applied to his years playing on the wing of a four man midfield. " Nobody can really criticise my finishing because they don't see me playing in a forward position too often." Welbeck said " but now I am getting into those positions I want to be sticking the ball in the back of the net. Obviously people can say I've not scored enough goals. But stick the best striker on the wing in a four man midfield and see if they score goals........"
Kind of shoots your square headed thinking down in flames, doesn't it. But of course how silly of me to think that your kind will not twist that around to suit your own purposes. So lets be having it. Lets see you twist and squirm your way of that Butch the alcoholic brown family. and BTW I'll let the Man U board know as well OK? Save you the bother...... Feeling a bit sickened are we? Never mind a few more tins down your neck and you'llbegin to feel even worse...AAARRRRRHH! Less

Old Granny Butch has always turned to Google and used Wiki in a vain attempt to argue her points and look remotely intelligent.
It's just such a shame that it's never fooled anybody, just like any of the long history of jackanory stories which she has come out with for the best part of a decade, for example, the 'chinning Lee Bowyer' episode and the numerous inconsistencies in what actually happened when she was spinning that little yarn.
All gob and idle threats, that's the oldest wooly woofter in Cairns for you.
Cue the 'geordie' comments in her bites! - LMFAO!!!
" is what we would sing on The North Bank "
FIFTY years ago, when you last saw Arsenal play ..... YAAAAWN!
I thought Thomas Vermaelen was a Moancheaters Ushyted target?
£15 million on the table and he's suddenly off to Barcelona ey? ;)
Another one who opted against a move to Old Toilet, can't blame him really, he's joined a much bigger and better football club.
He turned you down!
He turned you down!
Vermaelen turned you down!
He turned you down!
...sorry...maybe you're busy scouring your "Eddy/Roy" account....deleting the tell-tale posts you missed the first time around....?..:D
Where's all the other replies gone? I bet 'Bend Over Butch' has been flagging the posts again, the dirty old drag queen that she is. Hahahaha you gotta larf, oh it's time for another stiff one! HIC! LMFAO!
Mandzukic scores the winner for Atletico over Real, Ballotelli on the way to Liverpool and both at affordable prices and both miles ahead of Giroud in ability. Walcott has very little experience in the central striker role but is a much better finisher, however I don't think Wengher will play him there and it remains to be seen what player Walcott will be when he comes back. Remy would have been a step up from Giroud but he to is no top quality striker. I full expect Giroud to once again be Wengers main man and I think that is going to deflate all top players around him. We will be lucky to finish 4th.
Govinda, why do you pander to the Dodgy Family's jealousy?
He is incapable of doing what you're doing, assessing the team, because he cannot understand the finer points of the game.
You should allow him to stew in his own juices, knowing yourself and John are doing something right, which riles him almost as much as the humiliation I've handed him for years.
I'm surprised his wife hasn't caught him posting again, she must be as thick as him if she hasn't realised he's changed his ID and made up a new 'family'.
" Govinda, why do you pander to the Dodgy Family's jealousy??? "
Because he cant understand the finer points of the game........AAARRRHHHH! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! "the finer points"......AAARRRHHH!! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!! - oh dear we're all DOOMED!!!!
Drunk again, Dodge Family?
Remember your words of wisdom the last time you fell off the wagon ...
"With all the 'Best' will in the world, he is not going to make it without help from [himself]. And that's the horses mouth speaking. Perhaps his 'friends' who helped him so much, would have been better advised to leave him to it. It worked for me, when finally, no one cared."
No-one cared, not even the wife and kids?
That shows what a failure as a husband and father you are!
Showing off your multi-ID's there, you silly OLD sissy?
Someone must have went and riled you up again.
I see you don't have much to say about Moancheaters Ushyted's defeat against Swansea and the draw against the monkey mackems where even Ashley Young's disgusting diving antics couldn't bring about 3 points for van Gallstones.
ROTFFLMFAO @the orangutan banging, ten pound pom!
LMFAO - no League Cup for van Gallstones then!
Hammered 4-0 and a laughing stock!
Tumbleweed time on here again!
I bet Di Maria is starting to wonder what sort of amateurs he's just signed for?
MK Dons 4 - 0 Mancshafted Ushyted on the same day they sign Di Maria for £60 million, now there's one for the history books and another date I'll never let the Mancshafted Ushyted fans ever forget! - LOL
