    The whole narrative here is that Tottenham are so much better than Arsenal and one of the best teams in the world. And Arsenal fans can say Arsenal has at least won something.

    That's realistically the biggest trophy Spurs can reasonably expect to win. They haven't won that trophy since '91 BTW.

    There's no way in hell they're competing for League or CL.

    Sorry to hurt your feelings, but they do currently have a better team than Arsenal. Not an extraordinary better team.

    They are smoking the same stuff that Arsenal fan who started all this nonsense. With a few more signings they could be potentially a top tier team.


    Again, that was a long time ago. I am a Habs fan You don't see me boasting about 24 Stanley Cups because the last time they won people had mullets as hair cuts. The Habs don't have anything more to be proud of, same with Arsenal.

    There's a difference between a better team and basically not in the same league as them as talked about on here.

    And 3 years is a long time ago? Can't imagine what you think of how long Tottenham's trophy drought is.

    The irony is none of the overrating of Poch/Spurs is coming from any of the Spurs fans here.

    This whole Arsenal vs Tottenham argument is complete nonsense when both clubs aren't "big" teams. Tottenham is slightly above but not by much.

    Again, my whole argument is not about Tottenham's current trophy winnings. It's mainly how that one Arsenal fan is making Arsenal out to be world beaters when he/she shouldn't be tooting their horn when they haven't achieved much in almost 20 years.

    Everyone knows he's outrageous. But the number of non Spurs fans that exaggerate their stature and quality outnumbers that one Goon.

    This thread can essentially be summed up as:
    1) One Arsenal fan says outrageous things every few days.
    2) Every other poster proceeds to trash Arsenal.
    3) Remaining Arsenal fans try to show that Spurs have been marginally better than us.
    4) Repeat.

    I know you wouldn't, but Wikipedia is lying to you.

    In USD (I think; using transfermarkt):
    14-15: -4.92
    15-16: +18.90
    16-17: -35.57
    17-18: -20.18
    18-19: +6.10
    Overall: -60.67

    Sorry we can't all boss a dinky league like Juve. In our defense, Premier League refs get paid well already. :sarcasm:
    Wouldn't you if Maple Leafs fans were talking about how good their coach/GM is and how they're the much better franchise, etc?

    I forgot to add something along the way, but we're both wrong. 35.67m net in five seasons. Grand total of 7m net a season. So, again, doing it in spite of a clown chairman.

    lol I forgot to subtract the positives. You say clown chairman, I say he's done a really good job of getting value for players like Lewis Holtby, or Andros Townsend, or Kyle Walker, or Kevin Wimmer, etc

    The Wimmer thing was a straight out miracle. I think they just walked into that one. Same way we could sell Benteke for 30 mil before the market went insane.

    Don't know how they came to sign him in the first place either.

    Damn it got all stupid up in here...

    Dybala would be the best player to ever play for barca. Really though he is a need and fits like a glove too bad the footballing world has gone mad. Thanks Allegri.

    He most definitely should not be considered Eriksen's replacement. He would need Erik to feed him.... If you want the best version of Dybala the one worth 100++ million play him as a striker.

    Fraud really fraud how is he a fraud he took a mini mouse team and now is head and shoulders above anyone not named LFC/City in the EPL. There wasn't as much love for Simeone because A) Simeone coaches in a league where only a handful of posters watch regularly. B) he plays a ****ty type of football that no-one wants to watch. Poch is a better coach. SImeone is a better motivator. Pretty obvious for anyone paying a attention too.

    He most definitely is a top 3 coach. Again anyone paying attention can see that.

    I don't think it is definite that he is top 3. Zidane, Conte, Pochettino, Sarri are all in that conversation. It's clear who the big 2 are though.

    He is a fraud and it's obvious you fell for it considering you put him as top 3. If he is considered top 3 then he's underachieved considering he's still won nothing.

    My feelings about ZZ are well documented. Conte is a good coach but Poch's style is much more appealing and he hasn't had the teams Conte has. We'll see what Conte can do with the train wreck known as Inter. Sarri hasn't done anything that would make you think he is better than Poch. Although he too has a style that one can appreciate.
