SA_Gunner is going to do a deep analysis of us tonight, should be a good read and no doubt by the end of it we will all benefit of the great footballing knowledge he has..............in South Africa. Been promoted to a moderator on there too. Thought you'd have to be over 18 to be a mod, but there you are.


  • SA_Gunner - Having a proper look at Sp**s again tonight. You can see where their strengths come from, they entice the press and use that to gain central access. Failing which they will look to go more direct with with longer passes either down the halfspaces, or over the opposition. Because of their narrow shape in their build up phase, they naturally pull Palace narrow and create space out wide, but they also concede spaces out wide as well. A cat and mouse game in those areas for whoever has the ball. Clever from Ange, he creates that possible vulnerability in transition, to keep the game open and flowing. Should be an interesting watch tonight, the team who scores first here will dictate this game I feel.
  • Palace have started really well, have had the better chances. Vicario looks solid in goal though.
  • Title favourites dominating field tilt but no goal so far
  • Not hard man Romero faking a face injury
  • Sp**s play with the likeability of Chelsea, diving ****s...but with the recent trophy cabinet of Brentford ffs, imagine supporting such vile bunch of players (Says the fan of Jesus, Martinelli and Saka who carry on like this every game)
  • SA_Gunner - Sp**s arent title favourites man, not with this type of ball. Its far too chaotic. You can see where Arteta was coming from, going with the same high pressing strategy at the Emirates. If you limit Sp**s' build up play and ability to get the out ball, you've got them. I've noticed that Vicario doesnt go long much, and that could be a limitation to his game (I stand corrected on this one). Teams are thus happy to push their lines up and pressure them as a result. This could also be a ploy from Ange, to bring them up to create space. I will say though that Sp**s' ability to recover ground and hunt the ball back is great. Its very energy sapping, but works well.
  • Sp**s will probably win, but they have been absolute dog ****. Palace are toothless.
  • This is the story of the entire season so far lol
  • Imagine this place if we put in that performance. 0 shots on goal from the PL champions of October.
  • Palace the better side but they never look like they're going to score
  • Sp**s have played two good teams, us and Liverpool, and they should have lost both games. :LOL:
  • You say that we should have won every game we failed to win. At least since Arteta joined
  • ****k sake,not one shot in 45 mins proper Spursey.
  • Van de ven is so quick ffs
  • They got a bargain there I think
  • Sp**s will nick this as this Palace team couldn't score on a night out with Daneille Lloyd, but I can really see Chelsea turning them over next week.
  • There's that Sp**s luck again, should be behind
  • and now they lead. OG. Jammy bastards.
  • LOOOL own goal obviously. Telly off.
  • SA_Gunner - Lol that was so unfortunate for Palace. Good game though, end to end stuff. Dont think this game stays at 1-0
  • Sp**s luck again
  • Ridiculously lucky. Shot was going out for a throw in ffs. (It was a cross whipped into the 6 yard box, numb brains)
  • How did Guehi miss there!! Sp**s ship so many chances ffs.
  • Opposition players keep making mistakes for Sp**s to win. Been a pattern since game week 1. Maybe its their season
  • Bentancur back will be quite an asset, Bissouma nowhere near what he showed earlier in the season
  • Feels like just yesterday we were celebrating his ACL :poop:
  • Sp*rs lead with zero shots on goal. Certain people here would be pitchforks out if that were us.
  • Lol the ref giving every possible soft foul to them (watching a different ref clearly)
  • SA_Gunner - So this guy Romero is supposed to be superior to Saliba :lol: Palace not even bothered to press him when he is on the ball, they know he cant break lines with his passing. Man you gotta love Sp**s fans.
  • I rubbished claims that the league and officials are trying to manufacture a Sp**s title race but it gets harder to deny every week the luck is a bit mad. (Imagine being a human being and actually believing this)
  • Vicario and Romero just passing it back and forth PRESS FFS
  • SA_Gunner - That was a great goal, Sp**s looking good in transition.
  • That wasn't transition. That was Ward being absolute **** in every action. He gets beaten 3 times in that one attack.
  • SA_Gunner - I see it on the replay now, that was poor defensive work from both Anderssen and Ward. But they were out of shape there, and got caught cold in the end.
  • Lovely goal that
  • Palace deserved that, Tottenham have been announcing that attack for the entire second half. The league leaders win
  • Even that ball from Maddison had a little flick off the defender right into Johnson's path lol
  • Good goal tbh
  • Our attack is poverty.
  • They have all the luck in the world
  • Good play from Johnson there in both plays
  • Did Son just take water from the Palace bag? then offer the ref some? I'm turning this off (guy who thinks there's a conspiracy for Spurs to win the league :LOL:)
  • Sp**s ended up playing us with Timber/Partey/Rice/Martinelli/Saka/Jesus all missing by the last 15 minutes of our game, here without Olise and Eze. Liverpool decisions, got battered by United in the first half and they should have had a pen. Mad the luck they have had, tbh. Their downfall is gonna be sweet
  • Media wankfest will be unbearable for the Sp**s now. I prefer when they were shiite
  • It's hilarious that they are 5 points clear at the top. What is happening?!
  • Flash in the pan right? Nothing to see here right?
  • They won’t finish top 3.
  • SA_Gunner - Nah they wont, their game is too limited and intensive for them to maintain consistency for an entire season. ust look at how the run back to recover posession for example. That's going to wear them out soon enough.
  • Big Ange proving Little Mik is a fraud week in and week out. You mean to collapse into second you don’t need the time and money in transfers of a moon landing? 👍
  • Nooo Carra don't call them title challengers you was starting to grow on me
  • They will finish on top of us. They are 5 points ahead and the Specialist in Bottling hasn’t even begun to cook. Already he is laying the PR groundwork for a 3rd straight season to recycle his injury excuse for his congenital bottling
  • SA_Gunner - They definitely wont, you can just see it by this game alone. There's no way you concede so many chances on your goal, and think you can keep getting away with Hollywood style saves. They arent defending properly enough, and arent controlling spaces well enough.
  • But when we win away at Palace, its a great result at a difficult ground. 👏
  • Good to see one team in North London employs an attacking style. We got the billion in transfers Tony Pulis on the Red side of town.
  • Are we Mercenary United, if you go on Redcafe all the tossers on there think teams try extra hard and save their best only for United because they are so special. Arteta is already laying the groundwork for his next injury excuse. You got to get on the cultist party line of blaming injuries
  • SA_Gunner - Do you think Palace will press us, or push their lines up like they do here? Go back and watch the highlights of our game there. Teams will never give us such space, we'll absolutely destroy them. Ask PSV.
  • SA_Gunner - Its not about saving their best game, its about us getting the space that Sp**s get. Teams do also sit in a midblock against us, but they dont give a damn about attacking when it comes to Arsenal. Especially now that they cant counter attack either.
  • SA_Gunner - (playing one game a week) We technically did the same last year, its not enough if you dont have the squad. They look set for top 4 though, I think outside of City, Liverpool and ourselves they look good. Newcastle, Villa and Brighton should be able to compete with them.
  • Didn’t prevent Mik from bottling shamefully
  • Can't wait to see the chavs player who will gift Sp**s a goal next week. It's the surest thing when they play these days
  • No bro I don’t want to cheer for the sh.tty whites. I just want Ange to expose Arteta as the fraud we both know he is. Honestly though if Ange gets 84 points and tanks into second like Mik. Let’s just say tune in to AM; because if I am not on another ban by Howard Webberino i will be tapping some Tetsexual a.s
  • Matip,Jorghnho,Ward..The list goes on
  • Ayew golazo. Fair punishment for Sp**s fickle timewasting
  • Come on that's not handball
  • That is 100% a goal
  • SA_Gunner - Yeah it hit his chest first, so it must be a goal.
  • SA_Gunner - Just watch Romero, even when under no pressure, he passes it straight back to his keeper. Nah man, why are we entertaining this nonsense from Sp**s fans.
  • SA_Gunner - (getting into a row with a guy who doesn't rate Arteta) - Lol if you think there's nothign special about Mik then its either personal for you or you dont understand football.
  • He will never beat Klopp or Pep to league. Total fraud did hear his latest bozo interview. He wants 10 subs, he doesn’t even use the subs he has. I think he is a performance comic looking at his selections (they banned the guy now)
  • Sp**s five points clear. Depressing.
  • 2-1 FT. The league winners win. Would cry luck too but can't when I remember our unwatchable performance decided by the ref buying our dive.
  • They are ****e and their luck will run out soon enough. 1 shot on target and win 2-1?
  • So where’s the celebration police now when Sp**s are doing the same as us last season after 10 games?
  • I'm not worried a bit. Sp**s dont even look like Leicester when they won the league. They look way way way worse. They are playing pure garbage and it is not sustainable. It will come and bite them in the ass soon enough.
  • Our squad and quality will win out over the course of the season, but i do think they attack slightly better than us at the moment (even with the lucky own goal). Son and Maddison are on fire.
  • They have some kind of momentum going for them result wise but most of the times I dont think they are impressive at all. We have our own struggles to overcome for sure but I find our base level much higher than theirs. Would be catastrophic accident if we dont end higher than them.
  • I agree, I don't see anything impressive myself. A couple of individuals are excellent and the rest are just there. Our defense is better that's for sure. They too reliant on one or two guys to be a serious threat for me.

Been seeing everyone on Twitter/X pulling out the “lucky” card this evening. Don’t quite understand that when we dominated the game and the only goal Palace scored was wrongly allowed by VAR.

Mental revisionism going on here. They were all sighing in relief they salvaged a draw with us at their ground.

We only had one shot on target and didn't look like creating much else. Bar the second goal.

We were lucky palace were shit also and didn't want to press us most the game or take their chances.

Boiling piss better than any piss boiling in my lifetime. My favourite thread bar none. It shouldn’t matter really but football is tribal so it does. I’m here for the good and bad. I’m loving that it’s so, so, so satisfying at the moment.

I think the opposite, and I said it after the Fulham game too. We are set up to beat a high press. Yes it's also high risk but we actively want teams to rush us. Fulham didn't press us at all and we struggled for a while to find a way through, and tonight Palace sat off until we had to play into MF and then shut the space.

We have the quality in the main to find a way, but we will find more and more teams just let Romero and VDV pass back and forth and put 5 players on our 3 midfielders.

Jesus Christ that half decent 3 quarters of a season really got the Woolwich fans in their feelings.

you’d think they were absolute top table regulars or something.

  • You can't discount that their fixture list has been exceptionally kind to them as well. And the less said about that Liverpool game, the better. In contrast I think we have had one of the toughest runs so far. :ROFLMAO:
  • They’re first 8 games and half of them against the top contenders for relegation, plus the officials helping them beat 9 man Liverpool.
  • With the exception of us, every “tough” game Sp**s have had has been at home so far and we threw the game away and even in the Liverpool game, pool got screwed over. The next run of fixtures will either cement them as title contenders or the luck will run out - Chelsea, Villa, City, Newcastle, I personally can’t see them getting through those games without losing Atleast one.
  • I think they'll lose at least 3 of them to be honest. One of Chelsea of Villa will beat them and City and Newcastle will both thrash them. The bubble will burst quite quickly.

  • Our attack is poverty.
  • They have all the luck in the world
  • Sp**s ended up playing us with Timber/Partey/Rice/Martinelli/Saka/Jesus all missing by the last 15 minutes of our game, here without Olise and Eze.

    Liverpool decisions, got battered by United in the first half and they should have had a pen.

    Mad the luck they have had, tbh.

    Their downfall is gonna be sweet 🤤
  • Palace 10 shots 2 on target 0 goals.

    Sp**s 5 shots 1 on target 2 goals. Lol
  • Flash in the pan right? Nothing to see here right?
  • Big Ange proving Little Mik is a fraud week in and week out. You mean to collapse into second you don’t need the time and money in transfers of a moon landing?
  • But when we win away at Palace, its a great result at a difficult ground.
  • Good to see one team in North London employs an attacking style. We got the billion in transfers Tony Pulis on the Red side of town.
  • 2-1 FT
    The league winners win

    Would cry luck too but can't when I remember our unwatchable performance decided by the ref buying our dive.

  • So where’s the celebration police now when Sp**s are doing the same as us last season after 10 games?
  • I'm not worried a bit. Sp**s dont even look like Leicester when they won the league. They look way way way worse.

    They are playing pure garbage and it is not sustainable. It will come and bite them in the ass soon enough.

    Oh wow , Bentancur is on .
    Feels like just yesterday we were celebrating his ACL
  • From redcock:

    "I really hope Sp**s can keep it up and bag the Prem this season. The least of 6 evils. Going undefeated would also be sweet too. I'll be rooting for them this season in the absence of any United hope."

We'll get better as the season goes on.

The Goons are very much in the denial stage.

26 from 30 is absurd form...despite the fixtures.

Their rival watch thread in their subreddit is a treat. Too much to individually pull out comments but it's an absolute shit show - some saying complimentary things about us and getting their heads bitten off, others still whining about how easy our games have been and how lucky we are etc. It's just layers and layers of sulking and whinging.
