10.15 – Sp*rs fans will be delighted to pick up this morning’s papers and see their manager Glenn Hoddle singing the praises of Arsenal. Hoddle reckons Arsenal are now the benchmark for all other teams. It’s hard to know what to make of that to be honest, because normally he talks such a load of shite. Still, I suppose he has to make sense from time to time.
It’s dirty Leeds at Elland Road tomorrow morning. El Tel seems to have his work cut out for him up there as his side struggle with inconsistency. Good results against Newcastle and Man Utd have been offset against poor results against Blackburn and Sunderland. Still, they’re always a threat at home, and with Leeds never afraid to put themselves about on the pitch, it could be another stormy encounter. Bring it on.
Elsewhere. Bolton’s Ivan Campo has had his second yellow card against Arsenal rescinded and will not now face a suspension. It’s nice to see that referees can hold their hands up and admit mistakes. Perhaps some of his colleagues might have a word with Andy D’Urso and make him realise that he might actually gain a smidgeon of respect if he’d be willing to do the same now and again. Fat chance….
