After listening to the talk sport Radio trash all day and listening to the ex gooners and arsenal fans about the power shift, Arsenal fans need to get used to the idea that the power IS shifting.

Tottenham are clearly a team on the rise and Arsenal are clearly a team in decline. Yes 1 year doesn't stand up to 20 years etc, but the power is moving towards Totenham, next season we will hear the same, 2 years doesn't match 20 years and on and on. But we will continue to finish above Arsenal for a fair few years yet, no champions next year and Arsenal will struggle even more then they are now.

When we review this in 2 years times, we will have finished above Arsenal 3 seasons in a row, will have qualified for the Champions league time and again whilst Arsenal languish in Spursday night football if they are lucky, we will have a bigger and better stadium, training centre and team.

The future is bright, the future is Lilywhite

Looking forward to being there Sunday.

Finishing above Arenal is ok but it is nothing without winning a trophy. Until you do that you are just a good side!

Thfc why do you think Arsenal won't strengthen their team with top players over the next couple of years with their financial strength, yet you think spurs will be able to cope with that whilst paying for a new stadium without the funds to buy top players and pay top wages! Sounds to me like you are getting carried away with one good year over arsenal!

Thfc out of 4 competitions you will only of done better than arsenal in one of those, hardly power shifting is it! In the best competition you were embarrassing and couldn't even get out of an easy group! Lol.

Kyle Walker going or staying?
Has Poch decided that Trippier can replace him, and those funds be used elsewhere to enhance squad?
Too many noises about him going at the moment.

A real gritty performance for the team last night, every player put in a shift even Sissoko, I think we need to revert back to the 4-2-3-1 formation as Son is playing so well at the moment it seems unfair to drop him.

Palace are a tough team to beat, just ARSEnal, Liverpool and Chelsea, so to grind out a result on a cold night in south london shows we now have a steely core. I know we have some tricky games left this year and Chelsea certainly have the easier run in, but anything less than 3pts for them at Everton, which is a tough ask as Everton are playing very well at home, along we a win for us against the gooners really puts the pressure on Chelsea and the still have to go to WBA who are more than capable to nick a point or 2 against the bigger sides.

Game on

We are watching a lot of players at the moment, one player who i mentioned a while ago is Schick of Sampdoria. We are watching him almost every game now.

I'm on my way in the Subaru to Wembley, my in-laws' are massive Chelsea fans and they said they will win 4-0 and I fully agree with them, as our average squad and manager are out of their depth against this classy Chelsea squad who will run riot against us today.

Spurs have 4 players in the team of the year, yet I think alderwereld and vertonghen should have been in the team instead of luiz and Cahill. I also think dembele is the Best holding midfielder in the league and should have walked in. To show I'm honest I think Kyle walker shouldn't have made the team and has been average and I think Alexis Sanchez should have walked in as he's carried Arsenal on his own this season.

Believable0 9Unbelievable

21 Apr 2017 10:16:54
Sorry to disagree Raver, Walker has been the best right back in the country this season, I do believe Toby should have been in, in place of Cahill, but Luiz has also been outstanding this year, I am a little dubious about De Gea and Mane, both have been good but neither IMO deserve to be in the TOTY. Saying that I am not sure who would take their places, Obviously being slightly bias I would say maybe Lloris for De Gea, but LM is a bit more difficult, certainly not Sanchez he has been average for most of the year along with the Arsenal team. Maybe change formation to 4-3-3 and put Ibra up top.

{Ed004's Note - I don't think De Gea should've been picked he's had a quiet year but Lloris has had a few blunders - there's been no standout keepers so that was a hard choice. However, I don't get how Walker is in over Valencia and how Cahill got in over either of the Spurs CB or even Aziplicueta. Lastly, I think Mane has missed too many games to be ahead of Sanchez. I read Sanchez has more goals and assists than Mane and Hazard combined? Not sure if that is true}

Agree6 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 10:38:07

I completely agree about the keepers, its difficult, maybe Pickford if he played a full season, but then can you put a keeper in the TOTY if he has conceded the most goals?!? IMO Walker has had his best season this year and continues to get better but that's my opinion. Between Mane/ Sanchez both have only turned up in a handful of games this season general against the better teams, but again IMO neither deserve the accolade of TOTY. Hazard has been very good this season but I don't feel any better than Mane, Sanchez or even our own Son. This is why I would change formation and go with 3 up top.

{Ed004's Note - I was thinking Pickford as well but getting a bit fed up of keepers winning it because they're behind an awful defence - just cause they've made the most saves doesn't mean they've been the best. I can see the right back debate from both sides and couldn't argue with Walkers suggestion I just think Valencia has probably been Utds best player alongside Herrera so can feel hard done by not to be in it (we currently have the best defensive record in the league and only our keeper nominated). Ali, Kane, Lukaku, Kante (the media rave about him helps), hazard were all certs to make the call up and there is a lot of competition for that last spot. All of Sanchez, Mane, Eriksen, Dembele, Ibrahimovic, Firminho could've been picked I'd probably have gone for Sanchez.}

Alderweireld to Arsenal

What a complete joke to hear Arsenal fans calling for Wengers head, and then pleading with him to sign Alderweireld for the £23.4m release clause.

Toby is probably the best CB in the world at this present time, and if he did leave Spurs it would be to join a sinking ship at Arsenal. I think Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and another 50 clubs are in the queue ahead of you lot.

On the Wenger front be careful what you wish for! Just how he has managed to keep your very ordinary group of players in the Top 4 is amazing, and 6th place this year is a fantastic achievement for a club with Champions level players with stony sprinkle of world class talent like Cech, Ozil and Sanchez.

So keep dreaming you are getting Toby, keep dreaming you will sign a new saviour, keep dreaming you are the best club in London and keep dreaming of Wednesday night football.

When you wake up and realise the nightmare you are living in, then start looking at lower level aspirations.

Fully agree oracle, the tide has changed and most footballers want to play for Tottenham now instead of Arsenal.

These Arsenal fans are a joke, any honest man would pick the following best XI from both sides.

GK - Lloris
LB - Rose
CB - Vertonghen
CB - Alderweireld
RB - Walker

CDM - Wanyama
CM - Dembele

LAM - Sanchez
CAM - Dele
RAM - Eriksen

CF - Kane

Bench: Cech, Koscielney, Bellerin, Dier, Son, Ozil and Giroud.

Only Sanchez gets in.
Ozil is playing badly
Bellerin has shown he can't defend
Giroud is getting ousted by Wellbeck say no more.
Cech is about 55!
Koscielney is quality but nowhere near our CB options.

The rest are cannon fodder.

This is it straight guys. I agree with your team but I'd have kos instead of vertonghan. Your a long way from been a bigger draw for players but your in the right direction. And if it's not the arsenal been a bigger draw then other clubs around Europe are and you have to keep your best players because how I see it alli could easily go to one of the top three sides around Europe and do very well as well as his ability he has the confidence/ arrogance to do very well.

I also see Kane as been a perfect fit for Manchester United. How you handle your new stadium and keep to the same level is the acid test for you boys! Let's not get carried away just yet.

Spurs v Arsenal
Spurs manager is better
Spurs team is better
Spurs stadium is about to be better
Spurs wages will be better when you slip to Europa and we consistently play Champions League.
More revenues and much brighter future.
Kane is going nowhere and you would be wise to look in the mirror with Sanchez, Ozil and Bellerin about to leave.
Wenger will be sacked when Man City put you lot to the swiped and you lose your next Premiership game.

Hi Eds,

Fair few rumours floating around about Bruma of Galatasaray and Pulisic of Dortmund, both fit the profile at Tottenham and IMO both extremely good players who would only improve our squad. Is there any truth or interest in either of these players.

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new, Spurs have an interest in both of them.}

Eds, lots of news outlets (Lequippe etc) are reporting that its Monaco who Tielemans will join. Is there any truth in this? Also can you tell us more about Spurs' stance on Max Meyer. Thanks in advance Eds.

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement with Monaco just yet but there has been a discussion.

Youri Tielemans has attracted long-term interest from Chelsea with Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Juventus, Borussia Monchengladbach, Napoli, Spurs, Barcelona and Marseille all showing an interest in the past couple of years. Plenty of other sides will have had him scouted. Chelsea were actively speaking with his club since January 2014 through to 2016 but would have needed to send him on loan for, I imagine, at least a year. Speaking with Mourinho and another representative of (with the permission of his club) Chelsea he was adamant he did not want to be sent on loan - but that was a couple of years ago. Atletico spoke with Anderlecht this past summer and the player liked the idea of a move to Madrid but nothing could be resolved for a move at the time. The problem with a move to England is that he is still may not ready to step right in to the first team at many of the more senior clubs but it may not stop Spurs looking to bid. It was suggested that he should look to one the "smaller" teams in one of the big leagues, with Everton given as an example. Interest of Marseille and Juventus has certainly moved on. Milan and Roma are also showing some interest and have made that interest known. It is not out of the question that Monaco Borussia Monchengladbach may look to him again with Monaco having approached Anderlecht after becoming concerned that the discussions regarding Ghezzal were going nowhere.}

Thank You Ed! Your thoughts on Meyer?

{Ed002's Note - Max Meyer fits the bill of a young attacking midfield player which prompted previous bids from Chelsea (who would have sent him on loan for one season before integrating him in to the squad) and Fiorentina in 2014. Schalke 04 do not want to sell the player and made it clear to Spurs and Milan who were showing an interest this past summer that any move was unlikely - going as far as turning down an offer of €47M. The player has shared his desire to play in Spain with Real Madrid or Barcelona or to play in England. Other sides such as Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Arsenal watched him last season but had no real interest. If Liverpool were to lose Coutinho and/or Firmino he could be a player they may look to. Spurs remain interested.}

I don't get how Poch will fit in Tielmans ( or any other like player they will target) when they have Winks as cover for Dembele and I'm assuming that's the position Spurs are looking to strengthen. Ed you often have a remarkable amount of detailed information. What do you think are Spurs planning?

{Ed002's Note - Spurs will look to strengthen in the summer and there is sustained interest in Youri Tielemans. However, I suspect he will opt to move elsewhere and I have explained previously that I would discount him - there is one club pushing right now with serious interest from others. Spurs remain keen to bring in a winger and, regardless of how they are to be used, a midfield player. I rather suspect that a striker will be looked at as well. I can't help with how the manager will use these players, but it would not be unreasonable to assume that there will be interest in Spurs players from other clubs.}

Just the clarification I needed! Thank you again Ed! Cheers!

Fitting Tielemans into our campaign is easy. Firstly he is world class potential who could thrive under Dembele. We have two cups, a league and Champions League competitions to contest, and having two players in each position is essential.

If you look at the squad of 25;

GK - Lloris and Pau Lopez with Vorm possible a third.
LB - Shaw and Davies as Rose looks likely to leave for Monopoly Money!
CB - Vertonghen, Alderwiereld and Cameron Carter-Vickers. It looks likely that Wimmer will be sold with Fazio, and therefore Lejeune and or another CB to come.
RB - Walker and Trippier as good as it gets.
CDM - Dier and Wanyama must share this role. Both look amazing talents in this position.
CM - Dembele and Tielemans. Winks isn't good enough.
RAM - Son isn't enough and we need to buy a world class RM to challenge him and share the role.
CAM - Dele and Eriksen are both great here and should share or push Eriksen out LAM or RAM.
LAM - Marcus Edwards might be the future but surely aela is off in the summer. Onomah isn't the solution and we need a Mahrez or Ousame Dembele to give us more options.
CF - Kane looks simply sensational but perhaps a Mousa Dembele form Celtic would finalise our depth and options.

With a few under 21 kids to pad the squad we have the foundation to go and challenge in Europe.

Agree0 2Disagree

17 Apr 2017 13:55:24
Why isn't Winks good enough? Haven't you learnt after calling Kane not good enough? At least make an effort to learn something from the information the Eds and the others share here. Don't let every statement you make reek of ignorance.
