Arsenal fans in hysterics as ‘Spursy’ Spurs strike again

Arsenal earned their place in the next round of the Europa League this evening, while Spurs fell apart in Zagreb.

Tottenham have not enjoyed their brightest week of football, losing 2-1 to our side on Sunday before having the pleasing task of holding onto their lead in Europe, but that wasn’t to be the case.

Spurs won the opening leg 2-0 in North London, and the scoreline remained the same after the first-half of the second-leg, but they soon bottled it.

Not only were they dressed like bananas, they certainly slipped on the proverbial banana skin and slip-slided their way out of the competition.

Tottenham allowed Dynamo left winger Orsic to bag himself a brace in the second-half to take the clash into extra-time, and that same man scored the winner in the following 30 minutes of play, and some of our fanbase couldn’t help but relish in their failure.

Arsenal were not at their best, but thanks to their 3-1 victory in Greece last week they held on to earn their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Manchester United have just sealed their place in the draw tomorrow also after beating AC Milan 1-0, and we will now look forward to the draw.

Rangers also saw their European hopes dashed after they lost 2-0 to Slavia Prague, while Roma, Unai Emery’s Villareal, Grenada and Ajax also await their fate in the next round of the competition.

Which teams would you most like to avoid or get in the last eight?

    Dinamo look better coached than Spurs and their manager is in prison.

    1. Kent says:

      Haha, maybe they should try to do the same with the special one? Some jailtime might remind him how to lock-up his goal again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Would like to draw Slavia Prague or Grenada. Dynamo Kiev showed that they were fighters tonight but I still have them as the third option to play.
    Arsenal had a bad night, but we are through and that’s what matters. Hoping for a win against westham, 7th place will give european football so there is still hope IF we get knocked out of EL.

    1. Sean says:

      Tbh any of these teams are beatable including us so going be interesting draw tomorrow.

      Last 8, now on to west ham big 3 pints needed

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Sean, agree regarding the status of the teams; any team that doesn’t turn up will lose in the quarter finals.
        By the way I needed “3 pints” after watching that Arsenal “performance” against Olympiakos, as I’m sure a few others did as well.

        1. Sean says:

          πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ only saw this now!! Near an alcoholic due to Arsenal

    Spurs thought they’d done enough with the home tie win. Mourinho in his post match analysis tried to hand the blame to his players but we all know it was he that messed up. As I’ve said many times before. Mourinho relies on a very basic, hardworking industrious style of football. A defence comprised of ten with an out and out goalscoring behemoth! Remember Chelsea back in the day. Fereiera, Carvalho, Terry and Gallas. Essien, Obi Mikel, Lampard with Drogba up front. Everyone behind Drogba were just workhorses who’s job it was to stifle the opposition and knock the ball to Drogba.

    Mourinho has tried to replicate that at Spurs and has failed miserably. They thought the two goal cushion wanted in the first leg was enough and all they had to do was to defend that. They came unstuck as Slavia had nothing to lose and found Mourinho’s tactics easy to overcome.

    In the post match analysis, Glen Hoddle said that the Carabao cup would save Spurs’ season and act as a springboard. Unfortunately, if they underestimated us at the weekend and underestimated Slavia Prague……the shot knows what they’re gonna do about Man City in the cup final. Even moreso, what are they gonna do about villa this weekend ?

    Spurs have forever been nothing more than the pretenders to the throne !

    1. Terrah says:

      I think the dinamo zagreb players have the right to sue you for giving the credit they deserve to slavia prague

  4. ken1945 says:

    While delighted with the spuds being knocked out, let’s not get carried away – we also lost, aren’t in a cup final, lower than them in the table and got Arteta instead of Mourinho πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    The last example is for all those fans who bemoaned the fact that we “let” Jose slip through our fingers!!!
    I read last week, that it will cost them a reported figure of about Β£30,000,000 to sack him – OH HAPPY DAYS!!!

    1. Sue says:

      Wow with that figure can’t see him going anywhere anytime soon, Ken!!

    2. McLovin says:

      Were there really some fans saying that?

      I for not one second ever wanted Moaninho as our manager.

      – plays terrible football
      – ALWAYS implode after 2nd season
      – perennial moaner and even more stubborn than Wenger
      – for some reason one of the most expensive managers

      1. Dan kit says:

        Oh yes ,I could name a few on here but I’m not a d1ck ,but it was mentioned we should have gone for him .

      2. Sue says:

        Yes and I was horrified by it!!

  5. Joe. S says:

    I’m certain that the only tears Arsenal fans are shedding over the Spudploshion are tears of joy. However let’s focus on our own problems. There are more than a few.

  6. adi says:

    Got to give them credit, Orsic was quiet something. Won’t be surprise if some top EU clubs snatch him after that sort of performance.

  7. PJ-SA says:

    We really shouldn’t talk. Spurs have been poor overall and they are still above us on the table.

    We have our own issues to be concerned about

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Exactly right PJ-SA. As well as Arsenal’s own problems, I believe taking pleasure from the misfortune of others diminishes a person and shows lack of “class”.

  8. Wenger91 says:

    One week ago, Mourinho was commenting on Arsenal, got beaten by Arsenal and MA – kicked out of EL .. Nice!

  9. Pepe says:

    Yes typical arsenal celebrating spurs loss after a shattered performance losing at the Emirate again to the Almighty olympiacos…..
    I thought this was an opportunity to set the record straight, how low the standards has been
    Surely we want to be in the champions league

    1. Goonster says:

      But that’s what football is all about. Even when United were constantly winning titles they would always look at their Noisy neighbours (Man City) and a bit of Liverpool. Back then Liverpool and City were joke clubs that were sometimes struggling to even make Top 6.

      And we also used to do the same in the early days of wenger, we were always title contenders/ winners but that never stopped us from swimming in Spuds misery. They were struggling to make Top 6 and we were winning titles back then but it never stopped us from looking out for their results and having a real laugh.

      Again, this is what football is about, it’s about looking around and finding negative things about your rivals or teams around you and using those negatives to make yourselves feel good.

      Football is a very fickle, emotional and feelings based. It’s about bragging rights wherever you can find them.

      It’s about looking for positives to make one feel good about their own negative situation.
      😊

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Goonster, I feel sorry for people who gauge success, by the performance of the football club they follow. There is much more to life.

        1. LtDan says:

          But Ozzie, we may take some pleasure in castigating spurs at their loss but it’s not just the loss per se. It’s the way they went about it, playing boring and negative football yet still crowing about being one of the best teams in the league. Plus spurs fans, players(ex and current) and pundits still revel at Arsenal’s demise. And whilst we might revel at spurs, you have to remember that we are equally critical of our own team as can be seen from the abundance of negative comments from fans on this forum!

        2. Goonster says:

          Sometimes we have to acknowledge where we are. I would love to delude myself that Arsenal football club is still a very big competitive club. We have not been a serious club for about 15 years.
          What are we meant to do? Just be grumpy, depressed every time due to not winning titles and big trophies? Or we can have a bit of fun?

          Football is not some very important and serious thing. It is a sport. No need to get ones life too wrapped up in it. These are Multi-millionaires, and clubs are owned by multi-billionaires. They couldn’t careless,

          I say, have some fun. Shouldn’t let football dictate your life. There is real life and this fictional world of football.

          It’s not that serious. Have some fun. 😊

    Can someone go get the Spurs killer

  11. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin says:

    I personally don’t think us should concern ourselves much on Spurs going knocked out by Dynamo Zagreb last night in the Europa.

    But rather, us should focus on the Gunners failure to beat Olympiakos at the Ems last night in the same competition despite that the defeat saw us qualified for the quarterfinals stage of the competition. Thanks to our superior goals aggregate difference over Olympiakos.

    All eyes were on Aubameyang who was returned to the Arsenal starting XI team for Olympiakos after he was benched on disciplinary reason in our last home NLD match to see what he’ll do for Arsenal in the match.

    But what did he do for Arsenal in the match other than the catalogue of misses of goals scoring opportunities that he had in the match for Arsenal? This is terrible! As the Gunners captain that he is, he should at least level up score line for Arsenal in the 2nd half of the match by taking the responsibility to do so by scoring the equalising goal in the match after Arsenal fell behind by a goal in the match.

    I think Auba needs to look himself up in the mirror of regular goals scoring for Arsenal. And adjust himself appropriately where he sees he’s lacking and needs to adjust.

    If it were the final of the competition that was played yesterdayls night. Is that how Aubameyang’s captained Arsenal team would have played and lost the match to not qualify for next season’s CL? It could happen. Just as it happened when Arsenal lost 1-4 disgracefuly to Chelsea in 2018-2019 final in Baku. Whereas, Chelsea didn’t even need to win the match to qualify to in the CL the following season as they’ve already qualified through the PL table placement. But Arsenal need to win the match to play in the CL the following season because they finished 5th in the PL table. But what did us see the Gunners played in the match? Lack of match winning mentality playing to not win the match? Yes of course.

    Are the Gunners becoming used to indiscipline Europa League Cup match playing to be losing the matches they ought to have won?

    I think M Arteta should chastened the Gunners very well after their uncharacteristic home match loss to Olympiakos yesterday. And instill crucial match winning mentality into them to be winning matches in the club’s remaining matches in the PL and ELC this season..

    Which team do I want to see Arsenal play against and win over them to progress to he semifinals stage of the competition. I will say Arsenal should not be afraid of playing against any of the 7 teams left to them to play against. But be confident to play against any teams that they are given today to play against and beat the team to qualify for the semifinals stage of the competition.

    1. SueP says:

      A winning mentality deserted them yesterday
      They must do better against West Ham

  12. Vinnie2000 says:

    Have not qualified for the UCL group stages since 2016/2017..
    Have not reached even it’s Quarter final since 2009/2010
    Have not been EPL title contenders since 2013/2014!!
    Haven’t made any significant progress bar FA Cups win!!
    And we are here celebrating Tottenham Hotspurs when the likes of Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd are thinking of Building their teams and winning Big Trophies in upcoming seasons!!
    How very nice!!πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ˜
    And some of you guys will still want Arteta to push us to trophies with such a Mentality!!πŸ˜’πŸ˜’
    Ath Madrid don’t celebrate loss of City rivals Real Madrid like we do!! They concern themselves with winning their own trophies..
    Same with Inter and AC Milan
    Same with City and Man utd
    What the hell is wrong with our Club and even Fans??πŸ˜”πŸ€¦πŸ€¦

    2. George Rose says:

      I am a Spurs fan and I hated what happened today BUT you went through despite shitty performance, you can still win this thing and get into CL in the fall, you beat us on Sunday — enjoy the moment!!!

    3. Sean M says:

      Atleti fans don’t celebrate Real’s misery?? I can assure they most certainly do. I got sick of it while I was there. All football fans are petty, not just us 😁

    4. Johnmike says:

      No,not what the hell is wrong with us fans,but let it rather be what the hell is wrong you and your likes as fans supporting Arsenal? I am sicked of your moaning and vituperations about our coaches when we lose matches and not been objective with your analysis.

    I think we should be more concerned about our woeful display yesterday than the Spurs, they are the least of our issues now… We need to put our acts together.

    1. Sean M says:

      Amazingly, humans are able to think multiple thoughts from one moment to the next. Our ‘focus’ should be on enjoying life in a fulfilling and wholesome manner. Whether we choose to look at the positives or negatives is not for a person on the internet to determine. You do you, though.

  16. edward joseph small says:

    I lived in North London for 45 years and roughly half my Family, friends and workmates were Spurs fans. Believe me the banter which was seldom friendly and often bitter and was sometimes unbearable.
    One time my Spursey next door neighbours were making a racket, when I went to see if they were ok I realised they were watching a replay of the 2006 champions Leauge final! Need I say anymore.
