Tottenham Hotspur under new manager Ramos are quickly turning around their season and not only are they now above Newcastle in the league but they reached the Carling Cup final last night with an emphatic 5-1 win over Arsenal.
Bendtner and Adebayor at war at White Hart Lane
Thatâ€™s the first time in 8 years that Tottenham have beaten Arsenal, and only the second time ever that Arsene Wenger has lost to north London rivals Tottenham.
It was certainly a celebration at White Hart Lane and Arsenal players had to be separated as frustration set in with the Arsenal players. Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner had to be pulled apart by the Arsenal captain William Gallas as the realization that Arsenal were well beaten sank in. Bendtner had blood on his shirt and a gash on his nose, following his fight with Adebayor. Shades of Newcastle with Dyer and Bowyer in April, 2005. 🙁
This may or may not auger well for Newcastleâ€™s visit to the Emirates on Saturday, but it probably points to the fact that Arsenal are not at their best right now.
So the hopes of Geordie fans will no doubt be raised for Saturdayâ€™s 4th round cup tie, especially if we can attack the Gunners. If we can get an early goal, they may be vulnerable, but at least Tottenham have shown they can be beaten. All tickets for the game are now sold out and the KO time on Saturday is at 3:00 pm.
