    Not all countries use play-offs in their league systems , but alot do with vaious different formats (for example in some countires the bottom teams in the top tier take part in the play-offs like they used to do in England).
    Does that still happen in Scotland?

    Jon Parkin will most likely be leaving Macclesfield by the end of the month, I'd have thought. Chester and Lincoln have both put in bids for him, although I don't know if we'll have the cash now, because Gareth McAuley was going to leave us for Crewe for £150k, but that's fallen through now.

    Who does everybody think would fit into a combined Spurs/Arsenal side. Given the fact that the teams are currently very close, I thought it would be a very interesting issue.

    Here is my XI (4-4-2)

    GK Paul ROBINSON
    RB Kolo TOURE
    LB Ashley COLE
    CD Ledley KING
    CD Sol CAMPBELL
    CM Edgar DAVIDS
    CM Michael CARRICK
    RM Aaron LENNON
    LM Robin van PERSIE
    ST Thierry HENRY
    ST Ahmed MIDO

    Of course, every Spurs and Arsenal fan will have their own subjective view. I think that there can be very few arguments with the goalkeeper; Robinson is comfortably better than Lehmann or Almunia. Meanwhile, in defence weaknesses such as Cygan and Gardner have been eliminated. I thought that Dawson deserved a place in the side, but was unable to give him one.

    Midfield is more of an issue. I think Davids is the lynchpin of the Spurs side this season, so he is in the middle of the park. Although I can understand arguments for Tainio, Jenas, Gilberto and Fabregas to occupy the other central midfield berth, I feel that Carrick has a very good understanding with Davids, therefore he warrants a place in the side. The wings are a contentious issue, perhaps the right more than the left, but I feel that youth is key. Lennon's displays have been excellen in my opinion, although again, some of you may wonder why someone who has only started seven games for Spurs is in the team. On the left, van Persie has been immense, especially that goal in-of-the-post at Highbury. I refuse to have Ljungberg, Reyes or Pires in the team, partly because I don't like them, well, because I don't like them.

    Up front, Henry obviously picks himself, and I feel that Mido stands out fromm the Spurs strikers (Defoe's attitude has been poor for me, although I rate Keane highly). Bergkamp is still quality however.

    Arsenal 5 Spurs 6 COYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would put Reyes in at LM seeing as Van Persie has hardly played there and given that by your own admission he has been quality I would then put RVP up front with Thierry. 6-5 Arsenal

    If the Spurs squad was available to Arsenal - I reckon you'd still see the current Arsenal team get fielded.

    11-0. How it should be.

    Well, he's behind Shevchenko and Gilardino in the pecking order for a place up front. Inzaghi is also there.

    Robinson

    Lauren King Campbell Cole


    Ljungberg Davids Gilberto Reyes


    Mido Henry

    Close calls were:

    Right back - Stalteri has been exceptional, but i feel Lauren has more experience.

    Centre Mid - Was tempted with Carrick but Gilberto just nipped in.

    Our fans aren't the most imaginative, coming up with beauties such as "Leicester are ****" (repeated to one's heart's content), "We hate Forest and we hate Leicester, we hate Forest and we hate Leicester, we hate Forest and we hate Leicester.....oh we hate Forest and Leicester" and generic things such as "Premiership, you're having a laugh!" (when we we beat Wigan twice - look who's laughing now :rolleyes: ). One decent one, though, is "All things bright and beautiful, All creatures big and small, Derby rule the Midlands, and Forest rule **** all"

    Why are people playing Kolo Toure as a right back?

    If he was better than Lauren he'd be playing there.

    No because he plays in central defence. He is better than Lauren though

    Funny how when Spuds fans get a few wins and Arsenal play the poorest they have for a good few seasons they think are as good or better than us.
