Spuds bigger than Arsenal? Are you having a laugh? by Geoff Wood
The last time Tottenham won the FA Cup was in 1991, since then we have won it 7 times. The last time they won the league was 1961, since then we have won it 5 times. The last time they finished above us was 1995 which is 21 years ago.
This year they will finish above us in the league and we will play yet another FA Cup final. We have paid for a football stadium and they are still building one, we get 60,000 in our ground each week against their fluctuating number between 30,000 and 34,000.
Yet for some weird reason the football world thinks the power in North London has shifted to them.
Their highest paid player earns less than most of our average players, their average players earn less than our reserves, so what happens when their bigger players want paying what other players in the EPL get?
That will be funny when their players begin exiting in their droves, like all their big names do, Modric, Berbatov, Bale to name three.
I really like watching the spuds, especially this weekend when the cameras focussed on their fans at the final whistle, however the greatest close up was when the held the camera on Levy, that beat all!
I’m delighted to have reached the FAS Cup final and what with Liverpool losing and the Manc derby taking place this week, we can maybe hope again.
I still want Wenger to go but that’s for another day. All said and done I’m an Arsenal fan and we are on our way to Wemberly and we shall not be moved!
Have that Spurs!
