It's been going on for 40 years! Arsey fuckers. :wink:

Mind you, it was a cracking finish.

We were bottle of shiraz shite all over and yes Xhaka is a 100% knob but he seems to be bullet proof under Emery. Maitland-Niles is a far classier long term prospect in that position imo.

I take it that wasn’t a 'racist' inanimate object that found its way to Mr Alli’s last night.

I think the banana skin was thrown in the hope that Aubameyang would slip on it, no racists amongst the Spurs fans :wink:

The reality is, anybody who throws anything onto the pitch should be banned for life. I'm not so sure about the Chelsea bloke who slagged off Sterling, it would depend on what he actually said. He's entitled to call Sterling a champagne, but it would depend on which adjective he chose to go with it. The trouble is these days is everyone is so bottle of shiraz precious about everything, but it was good to see Sterling laugh at the bloke.

Mind you, I reckon the Goons should sign the bloke that threw the bottle, he was a lot more accurate than your strikers :lol:

Our inspirational skipper Ozil dropped again apparently v liverpool? No big loss, but this could still go very badly for us either way.

:lol: Just read that Aubameyang had 13 touches in the whole game.

Six of those were from kick offs :lol:

We need to open the cheque book! If not another year playing second string Europa League. shiraz Ozil off now and cash in & free up 350K a week!! You could see tonight we have no play making midfielders & Emery likes to play thru his wide men & we have no out n out wingers.

Staggering that you have bloke on £20m a year and he doesn’t even make the bench. Not sure you’d get that much for him now though.

What about Awobi? He goes past wide defenders. And he just missed what would have been the equaliser.

Captain Koscielny should not have tried to find a teammate with that weak header out which led to the fortunate Hammers win.

As for Ozil, his creative, though more-and-more-rare assists these days and his range of passing were sorely missed.

^^^^^^

It was Xhaka with the header. Another one of his errors costs us again.

This was always going to be a season of ups and downs, and after the 22 match unbeaten run (which masked a lot of our weaknesess) this is now one of the real downs.

But Emery’s job is to turn things around. He might get some help in the transfer market with a loan deal here or there, but he’s got to find a way to do more with what he has. If that means some really short-term thinking and swallowing his pride over situations like with Ozil or Ramsey, then just do it!

Because what he’s doing right now isn’t working and the gap between us and the top four is getting bigger by the week.

Rather be in our position than yours, but 1-0 away is not an awful result and I still think you’ll comfortably go through. Dracula might even play the superstar Ozil in that one. Great value for money he was, I’m almost thinking Sissoko was a better buy :lol:

I think the Goons will win comfortably at home, but it’s still fun to see them struggle :lol:

French mid-table is about where our current gaggle of euro-trash sits in reality, credit to Emery for keeping them competitive with Chelsea, utd & spuds. Mind you they weren’t the ones struggling last weekend….

Gritty 2-0 win against a strong ManU.

Into fourth position and now only 1 point behind Tottering and effectively 2 games clear of Chelski.
