    Defoe still hasn't got the goal-hanging ability of Wright, but I guess that may come later in his career. Jol tried to make him a more keane-esque player, contributing to all-round play, worked to an extent with the number of assists he's made but he's lost an element to his game this season. The goal against west spam is what he should be doing every game.

    About how Spurs fans should be embarrased since virtually all have come here said how Spurs should not appeal. and now that the appeal has been rejected and Spurs fans are accepting the result and moving on, it's other fans who are still going on about it.

    Hey, my final year project is so dull, that sadly it makes writing to the FA look attractive!

    4 years at uni has sapped any motivation to do work out of me and now i get easily distracted
    I still think its a bit weird that they've ended up with so much moneycompared to some of the other clubs.
    Take away the $2 million prize money and the many live premiership broadcast and they'll be in the midst alongside those other clubs.

    Part of the reason why we appealed in the first place was to get the rules changed so nobody has to be disadvantaged like that ever again. If Gooners (and others) actually read the original letter, and the follow up letter after the rejection, they would realise that. So yeah, that and the general anti-Spurs nonsense... you obviously find us a threat.

    Precisely. You should be embarrased at your club because you knew you shouldnt have appealed yet Spurs did.

    What makes Spurs so arrogant to think they would win if there was a rematch?

    Spurs can stop being such bad losers.

    Completely agree with you there, i don't see the point in either of the players.

    The original game was not a fair contest, players throwing up and collapsing directly before and after the game respectively. Nobody is taking anything for granted, again if you read the letters you would have a better idea. All they were asking for was a fair crack of the whip. It seems strange that we played superbly at Highbury two weeks earlier, yet we produced arguably our worst performance of the season at west spam. Nobody should have to be disadvantaged like that ever again.

    Why can't you admit that West Ham played better than you on the day, and it doesn't matter how well you played 2 weeks ago. Its life - in 2003, Arsenal were running away with the Premiership title and then in the last 7 games or so, it seemed that it was a team fighting relegation that was playing, not one that was going to win the title (which they eventually lost to United when they lost to a soon to be relegated Leeds United at Highbury).

    Still forgeting the fact Spurs fans should be exceptionally proud of their players for playing. They have nothing to be embarrased about.

    Fans who should be embarrassed are those with a manager who claims to never see anyhting on the pitch and who has the audacity to criticise another manager for the same thing, when TV replays shows he wasn't even looking that way.

    Spurs fans have moved on, other so called 'fans' should do the same. If you'd actually put more effort into your team rather than Spurs, you'd be able to call yourself an Arsenal fan.

    Spurs fans should be embarrassed.

    Can Arsenal replay all the games we lost when we had 9 men out this season?
    In fact lets delay the world cup because Rooney is injured!
    Chef Wenger put special potion in their food though

    You would actually notice from my measured response that I might have the intelligence to have done just that. And I do see what Spurs are talking about when they say it is a grey area... I think these sorts of things need to happen, in a funny kind of way so that the football league can adapt its rules and regs as time passes for these kinds of things. Thus, future considerations will be better, and the sport will evolve - on and off the field.

    And I understand it isn't all about Arsenal, nor Barcelona. I have great respect for Barcelona, and many of their players. And even if Arsenal lose, I will have enjoyed the game totally... I don't see why you need have such a low opinion of us Arsenal fans... though I suppose all football clubs have a certain stigma attached. And that's a shame.

    Man marking Dinho is not the way to stop him. Wenger doesnt like to man makr players either.
    Gattuso will back you up on that. The first leg of the semi final, Gattuso was worn out after the first half.

    I have given them credit in previous posts, and if you like I can do it again...west ham were better than us but I don't know how much they can take from the game under the circumstances. Can't help but wonder what would have happened had the whole food poisoning thing not have taken place. The Arsenal example you've used is different. Arsenal didn't slip up because of a combination of 10 players suffering from poisoning and suspect FAPL antics. I was using the Highbury game as a barometer to try and show what effect the food poisoning may have had. The west ham game was not a fair contest, the FAPL conceded that by offering a 4 hour postponement, nowhere near long enough to get a bug out of you're stomach. Besides, im not even arguing that we should get a replay, I've said all along that Spurs fans should not have been embarrassed by our club trying to get a fair crack of the whip.

    a Barca win will shut up all the gooners
    No it won't. It is still a great achievement to get this far.
    I wait patiently for the day that Spurs actually QUALIFY for the Champs Lge, let alone face the world's best team in the final.

    As for the West Ham game, earlier in the season it finished Spurs 1-1 West Ham at White Hart Lane. A narrow West Ham victory at Upton Park would never exactly have been the shock of the season!
