And after all that build-up for Giggs he doesn't even get in the squad today!

I reckon Spurs will edge it today. There's not much between them but Arsenal are on the ropes just lately.

5-2 to Arsenal!

Seriously could go either way. We've looked more solid at the back lately, depends if we have another striker playing alongside Bale. i.e. if Defoe is fit enough to play some role, or if Adebayor can be arsed.

Arsenal haven't done too badly lately. Yeah there was Blackburn and Bayern, but they've put the results together. Classic six pointer today though!

If it's at White Hart then Spurs. Bale is playing like me in my younger days before that ingrowing toenail stopped me, and the Arsenal defence isn't great at the best of times.

2 goals in 2 mins for Spurs, this could be a mullering for Arsenal if it continues.

Bale needs to f**k off with that love heart celebration now. I could just about take it when he scored now and again, but we see it every game now!!

I was pretty indifferent about the whole Harry/AVB saga. I thought the sacking was pretty harsh, but more than anything it highlighted how ridiculous the whole England manager situation was. After the Santini/Jol/Ramos/Harry sagas, nothing Spurs did really surprised me to be honest.

I was definitely open to having someone more tactical in though. As Bale said in the week, a lot of what Harry did was motivational, which can be really important, but you can not be that consistent with that approach. Even if the team's not playing that well, the shape/organisation of the team can still win out. It's good to see AVB has also modified his approach to the squad, he admitted looking to sell Dawson was a mistake and he's changed his formations to suit our squad.

Spurs seem tight at the moment. There seems to be a good positive feeling around the club, with players and manager. And as much as Bale has been taking the headlines through his goals and general levels of performance, the team hasn't been poor, but we've missed out on having a player who can really pull the team through... most top teams have one of those players and as good as Modric was, I don't think he could carry the team.

Gutted, absolutely gutted, we did not deserve to lose that and to concede with the last kick of the game is just painful. All roots back to having a goal ruled out for offside when it oh so blatantly wasn't, extremely poor refereeing. We would've been 2 goals up and the game would likely have been done and dusted. Shouldn't have rested Yobo.

On the bright side Coritiba just beat Londrina 1-0 with a goal from the wonderful Alex to win part 1 of the Campeonato Paranaense and make it to the Final. I think. Not fully clued up on Brazilian footy yet.

It means Paranaense Championship which is the league of the state of Paraná. They have them for various states such as Carioca, Mineiro and Baiano. They happen every year before the Serie A season starts (around May), I think there is one for most of the 26 states.
