Spurs Demolish Arsenal 5-1, Hope for Newcastle

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

That’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 Newcastle’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 Saturday’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.

    Lets put this into perspective. A very weakened team were beaten well by Spurs.

    It depends who wenger puts out but more likely we get a back lash.

    I’m just hoping we get a weak team on Sat and win that and face the full team mid week in the league. Happy to lose that game if we can continue in the Cup this year.

    People need to stop saying Newcastle should buy players like Adebayor, Tevez, Van Nistelrooy, Berbatov etc. It really highlights how desperate we are at the moment. Only players of this stature who are unsettled would move to a mid-table side and we need to build with the kind of squad we already have.

    The Arsenal team that lost to Spurs last night was NOT a weakened team. And wasnt it a so called weakened Arsenal team that dumped NUFC out the same competition earlier in the season?

    Spurs won pure and simple because they’ve now got themselves a very good manager from the continent who knows his stuff. Strange how Ashley’s Tottenham mate tried instead to push Redknapp upon us.

    I doubt they will be banned & if they are, it won’t be either of our games they miss!!!

    I’m just hoping, wishing, praying they don’t stuff us 5-0 in return, its bad enough having the Spurts beat them & we can’t….

    i wouldnt say it was a weakened team. The team they had out had alot of first team regulars. Even the players classed as squad players have plenty of experience. Adebayor played, fabregas came on early, sagna, eduardo, bendtner. barein mind this supposed weakened team has already beat us this season but their full strenghth team struggled to get a draw with us at st james’s park.

    Black caesar, so the fact that 3 of the starting 11 were automatic first team players means it wasn’t a weakened team? You just keep telling yourself that, if it makes you feel better. The better players came on when we were already losing.

    GMR whether your better players came on when you were losing or played at the start, the fact remains that the Arsenal first team lost 5-1 to Spurs.

    Adebayor, Gallas, Fabregas etc all played. Get a grip man.

    Black caeser learn the Arsenal first team before you start talking crap, it WAS weakened, lets have a look shall we.

    Gallas, Sagna , Hleb, and Cesc were the only first teamers for the majority of the game. FOUR 1st team players out of ELEVEN.

    Fabianski, Hoyte, Traore, Gilberto, Bendtner, Walcott, and Diaby all played. SEVEN second string players out of ELEVEN.

    hmmm, that seems weakened to me mate.

    Adebayor and Eduardo came on around the 70th minute when the game was already lost so you can’t exactly count them. It has nothing to do with Ramos, stop giving him credit for nothing, so far Spurs are only SLIGHTLY better defensively then what they were before he came, stop following hype and look at the facts. I know so many Tottenham supporters and they ALL say it was a weakened side.

    The 5-1 win came from Arsenal throwing everyone forward to try and get the goals. Otherwise it probably would have been 3-1 or maybe even 2-1 to Tottenham

    Or, OR, (not wanting to be negative) but we could have an Arsenal on a war path. Either one.

    no now there s no hope after getting hammered 4 0 they will want to put things right and wenger will be going mad at them so they are gonna be more up fo this game then they would have been were so unlucky we always have to play teams when they have been on the back of heavy defeats or when they have a new manager examples.

    Typical arsenal fans in the Carling Cup. If they win, they go on about how they beat you with their second string. If they loose, they cry about how it was a weakened side. I’m so tired of it. That was the team that Wenger put out and Arsenal lost. End of story. To be honest the quote Arsenal B-squad has a ton of class and experience. Arsenal were just out played. It happens. Get over it.
