Half-time emails: “All of your best players are either attackers or attacking midfielders,” says Richard Hearst. “There are no defenders or guards.” “Is this because our defenders and guards are humble or because of an inherent bias towards attack? The same issue arises in the debate over whether Pele, Cruyff, Maradona or Messi is a goat. What about Yashin, Zoff, Beckenbauer, Moore?”
I don’t think Yashin, Zoff and Moore were anywhere near the best ever in their positions, nor do I think the current level of Ranger and Defender is too high. But I do agree that we do not appreciate the players who play there – when discussing the best players Premier League An era, for example, once you finish the top four – for my money, Kane, Ronaldo, Cantona and Henry because they decided who won the most bet – I’ll look for the players who were legitimately better at what they did, so I’ll turn to Cole, Ferdinand, Schmeichel and Terry If I don’t object to its inclusion on such lists, which I do).
Tottenham didn’t have to play all of this well to get to this point, But they are playing well enough Arsenal, Who have very little progress and not a lot at the back.
Half time: Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Arsenal
This is over, isn’t it?
Goal! Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Arsenal (Kane 45 + 1)
Hit rewind. Lacazette sends a beautiful ball between left-back and mid-back, feeding Belleren, but a cross pass behind Aubameyang broke Tottenham Hotspur. One pass puts everything away and Lo Celso takes the ball across the cewntrefield before he finds Son, striking the left inner channel. He’s waiting for Kane to yell along outside of him, take his own steps, and what a ending! Bullet billowing, moaning, howling, off the beam at near center. Decent player, I think /
44 minutes Lacazette passes the near side of the wall, but there are a lot of tall men in it and Kane heads behind him in the corner. It results in another …
43 minutes Arsenal win a free kick at 20 yards from the right of center. Lacazette imagines it for reasons known to himself.
41 minutes Willian turns away from Lo Celso, who breaks into him. It’s booked and that’s fair enough, but I’m not sure how, in this context, Xhaka got away with the same penalty twice.
40 minutes But they’re going through a better period now, and when Aubameyang goes to the left and crosses, the rebound causes problems and Willian is looking to tame it through Reguilon from behind. He does just enough to stop his leg from turning to shoot.
36 minutes In Arteta, Arsenal They thought they were gaining a pip early on, “Gary Naylor, but it looks like they have a late stint at Arsene.”
Not sure yet. It is true that Arteta was not qualified for the job in terms of the things he did, but his plans for what he would do may have been impressive. Either way, he’s only had the gig for a year and left a lot of work and not a lot of money, so we don’t know yet if he’s good or not. I doubt he forgot that football teams need strength and speed as well as cunning and skill, which I always thought was Wenger’s problem from 2006 onwards.
34 minutes Gary Neff and Jimmy Redknapp note that the Tottenham coaching staff is “mafia-like,” and they talk about everything and challenge them. Meanwhile, Lo Celso knocks the ball off Barty and dashes down the holding side, looking for Kane into the penalty area, but Houlding is doing a really good job of bidding farewell to him with a corner cost.
33 minutes “Amazed and jealous I heard from Shooby Taylor earlier,” says Peter Pearson. “I thought he moved on to The Great VAR Review in the Sky. Tottenham v Arsenal Behind the unpaid unsubscribe system is here in the USA so I’m revisiting some of Shooby’s greatest successes while keeping up with MBM. “
31 minutes Hjobjerg places his coupon between the ball and the shoes, so he takes a little on the side while a small spot of bleeding is treated.
31 minutes Tierney puts the ball in the penalty area and Tottenham heads toward Kane, so Xhaka pulls it down. Again, he avoids the card.
30 minutes “Charles Antaky asked what score would be allowed for an Arsenal fan from Collywobbles,” says Kári Tulinius. “As an Arsenal fan, I only let myself ask if there are three worse teams in the league. I can think of two. I don’t think this team is going down, but just because I think.” Arsenal Panic buying an old star in January will do enough. “
I think that’s cruel. Arsenal aren’t anywhere near the worst, but they are miles away from the best and don’t have enough money to quickly bridge the gap.
29 minutes Tottenham hits the ball – they’re not that good, but they are miles better Arsenal And they know that.
28 minutes “Is it time to admit that Son and Ken are not just two of the top 10 players in the league, but they should also be included in the top 10 in the world in 2020?” Niall O’Keefe asks. ‘Incredibly consistent. It could be their year. Jose knows a thing or two about winning. “
They are definitely among the best in the world. I would say these two, Salah, Mane, De Bruyne and Fernandez are the best in the league.
26 minutes Reguilon, looking as good as his search for Seville, flies down left and collects a pass from Dier. His cross was clearly displayed, but only as much as Hjobjerg, who fired a straight shot into the center of Leno.
24 minutes “Good point about Harry Kane,” Yash Gupta wrote. “Even in the documentary (though it’s a PR exercise but still fine nonetheless), he was the first one to sit in front of his teammates to listen to the manager’s most famous director’s instructions for the Everton game. I also think it’s helpful for Jose that his main mantra isn’t … The one who has a lot of vanity and who is not doing the defensive work. It may be more than necessary but it raises the level of the dressing room and leaves no room for great vanity.
Although I’m not saying Kane is devoid of an ego, he basically has the type of best guys with me, I’m pretty sure he’s a pleasure to manage, and because he’s always so brilliant, no one in the dressing room has a way of undermining his power. He’s like Roy Kane in that sense.
23 minutes Arsenal had a fair amount of possession but didn’t do much with it. They need to have Saka and Party at the ball up the park.
22 minutes “I must say that I did not realize how much I missed the” sarcastic “chants when the opponent’s player passed the ball directly to touch it,” Brendan Large regrets. ” “Golden comedy!”
I’m looking forward to “Ooooooh you **** …. ahhhhh!” From the goalkeeper.
21 minutes In the commentary, Gary Neville notes that Bellerin is referring to Dier – oh my god – but the decent angle, which bumped well and flattened, heads away nicely with Hold. The problem for Tottenham there was that he avoided areas where they had players waiting.
2o min Ben drifts to the right and swings over a good cross to Ken, but the holding is there to swing behind her.
18 minutes This goal really sums up the problem for Arsenal. They forgot how to attack, and every time trying to remember, they opened themselves up to score against them.
16 minutes Damian Durant says, “Arteta has got more credit than Emery, for being a likable and ex-player.” “But owner Kroenke is all about money from European competition. If Arteta is kicked out of the European League and is still in the bottom half, this season could be out in my view.”
I think there’s more to Arteta – he’s unknown, while Emery was a solid, mid-ranking manager, which is why he came back so well with Villarreal. I agree things look bad at the moment but unless things go wrong a lot, I’ll give it a little more time. He won the title last season!
14 minutes Looking at the goal one more time, Gabriel steps out of Kane as he takes the ball down. You can not do that.
What a goal! Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Arsenal (son of 13)
Dyer throws his head into a cross and Sissoko assists her on Kane. You think you know the rest, but you don’t. Kane controls brilliantly, pulling out the front, then publishing it to Son – you guessed that thing – and advancing, as he backs down, doesn’t want any of it. But instead of attacking the space in the back, he unlocks his body 20 yards and suddenly the whole world, including Bernd Leno, knows what’s going to happen, but it’s done so perfect that he or anyone else can do anything about it, it’s screaming, A curling roller that flies around the bouncer and into the side grille, halfway up. What a goal! What a player! What a partnership!
12 minutes Is this match the culinary highlight? Premier League season? I can’t think of two other clubs that are so close to so much delicious food.
