I hate Spurs. Hate them, hate them, hate them!!
Since we’re playing our good friends from the Borough of Haringey very soon, I wish to convey my views on our “friends”, who now of course are renting the national stadium to play “home” games.
Yes, every Gooner detests that lot. But these are my specific reasons for such, if you will:
They copy us. We have a big ground, so they get a big ground. We get top foreign players, so they want top foreign players. They want a global brand and big revenues, only since we have such.
They see us as their benchmark. You never hear Gazidis mention them but Levy cites us all the time. They’re obsessed with us.
They are our inferiors. They lack our trophy cabinet, records, history, and fan base. They want this, desperately, and again see us as their benchmark. Arsenal stands for excellence on and off the pitch, by doing things that many other clubs haven’t. Our achievements on every level surpass theirs.
They say we’re envious of Kane. Why when we’ve got PEA?
They talk about power shifts but don’t win trophies. Ten years, and they’ve won f-all….
They said we were boring under Graham but then we won league titles. They haven’t in decades.
They talk down the FA cup when it’s central to their history as a football club. Don’t tell Paul Gascoigne, or Ricky Villa, or Blanchflower for that matter, that the FA Cup means nothing. We don’t disparage competitions that our legends have made their club names in….
They say we’re spoilt but we just are used to success they haven’t attained.
They say were sell our best players continually, yet Walker is the latest in a long line of players to win big after leaving. They’ve let go of more of their top players in PL history. Sheringham, Carrick, Berbatov, Campbell (hahahhaaaha!!!!!), and in a way Bale (though not to an English team). Spurs condemning us for bad sh.t always stems from hypocrisy of epic standards. Yes, the Emirates holds a weak atmosphere. But their ground did too. And despite the “lilywhite Kop” in their new ground, it remains to be seen if this will change.
They had Gazza and Lineker, two of England’s best ever players, and we still outperformed them.
They said Bergkamp would turn out badly. Very badly, as he’s arguably the best ever foreign player in English footballing history, let alone the Premier League.
They’re the number three club in London now, since Chelsea is a bigger club overall than them.
They are the most hated club in London, since Chelsea, West Ham, and others despise them too. They reckon it’s due to envy. Really? We earn more money, won more trophies, have a bigger global brand, and more fans than them. Envy is inappropriate, and comically false.
They say we bought our way into the league, but after 100 years there’s no evidence of this. This ignores, despite proving the charges false, that the FA docked them points for poor practices. We’ve never had that, even if then owner Lord Sugar got it overturned.
They say we hate Wenger, but then they’ve never had a manager of his success. This includes the late Bill Nicholson, since Wenger won two Doubles, not just one like Billy Nich. No Spurs manager ever won record FA Cups, or the most PL games ever.
And they’ve won seventeen trophies. We have THIRTY. Who knows, it could be thirty-two by the end of this season.
So Spurs are the scum, and it’s our duty to smash them at their rented ground.
