I made a tongue in cheek comment about us beating them. Then ironically my post is attacked for not giving Chelsea credit (while in an Arsenal fan forum as if I need to give Chelsea any credit for anything). Ironic because my comment was meant to compliment Arsenal for beating the league leaders and making them look like a league 1 side on the day. Apparently I’m not allowed to talk positively about Arsenal without commenting about how amazing (insert any other team) are.
Credit to them… they started slowly but are a freight train right now. Conte’ has their super-talented players playing like they should and with a tactical competence that is really hard to see how they fail to seize the title atm.
Moot, how? We beat them. Dominated them. Made them look like Reading. How is that not relevant? It’s an amazing result for us, the nest of our season so far at the half way point. All everyone wants to do is downplay how badly we dominated the supposed unstoppable league leaders. I’m also confident we’ll do it again. As opposed to the pretty standard defeatist Arsenal fan with an inferiority complex.
I’m referring to you bemoaning being “attacked” for not giving Chelsea credit and the like, since it’s their thread it may not be out of this world to acknowledge them here and there unless one come’s here to just rag on them all the time.
No one is downplaying anything, however, bringing it up when they’re sitting comfortable at the top of the table and have dominated since then achieves what exactly?
Every team second till sixth could really do with a Spurs victory over Chelsea. There has to be a string of dropped points now when the games are tough. If it isn’t all over then now is the time for the turnaround in results.
It’s not the same IMO. Recently yes the football has been worse. However for the majority of the season up until now we’ve been playing some good stuff, we’re scoring close to 3 goals per gm average.
As far as getting bored watching Arsenal I’ll have to disagree there. I’ve watched some pretty boring football recently out.of Chelsea, City, and Lolpool. I think it’s less about individual teams being boring and more about the bottom of the league seeing where they stand in the table halfway through the season, and deciding it’s time to park the bus and avoid relegation. The perfect example of this was Chelsea v West Brom from a couple weeks back. About as boring a match youll ever see with Chelsea doing absolutely fuck all until a WBA defender gifts the ball to Costa in front of goal and it ends 1 nil. We played much better football today with a bunch of attempts. Against a parked bus like that, I’m pretty happy with what I saw today.
