Spurs are rubbish

Okay here is the price breakdown of the players involved in Arsenal's away fixture at Spuds this weekend - Wenger or Jol? WHo is the master?

Almunia: 500k

Sagna: 6million - Toure: £150k -Gilberto: 4.5million - Clichy: 500k

Diaby: 2million - Flamini: Free -Fabregas: Nominal - Hleb: 7.5million

Van Persie: 3.5million - Adebeyor: 3million


Rosicky: 6.8million - Song: 1million - Denilson: 3.4million

Total: 32.85million (that's the price of two Darren Bents).

In contrast the Spuds cost...

Paul Robinson: 1.5million

Pascal Chimbonda: 4.5million- Young-Pyo Lee: 1million - Younes Kaboul: 7million - Gareth Bale: 5million (could be 10, but we'll say 5 for now)

Michael Dawson: 8million - Tom Huddlestone: 2million - Jermaine Jenas: 9million

Steed Malbranque: 2million -

Dimitar Berbatov: 10.9million - Robbie Keane: 7million


Aaron Lennon: 1million - Darren Bent: 16million

Total: 74.9million

Verdict - good scouting still goes a long long way...


  • Fantastic value that Bent is!

  • Two Darren Bents - class.

    In fact, you could even do a chant next time you play them - "We're only worth two darren bents, two darren bents". I suppose you need to also factor in weekly wages but your point is very valid. In fact, factoring in wages may even make Tottenham look worse.

    I don't know if I would go so far as to say Wenger is the new Harry Redknapp but he did a good bit of business. As long as Wenger emulates Harry's dealing and does not start trying to speak Cockney. That would be strange.

  • Cockney Wenger would be hilarious. He is awesome as is however and whereas I think we will fade when the injuries and suspensions mount, he has an excellent first 15...

  • Rumour has it that Jol did not want to sign Bent. He was forced on him ala Jose/Sheva. Stay tuned on that one.
