Spuds or Victims

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

Interesting that he was a Gooner, because he always seemed very up for it when we played them and I never liked him, because he was reckless and dangerous in the challenge....which I always imagined was part of the rivalry.

However, happened across him and Colin Calderwood with their families on an airplane and he seemed like a pleasant guy.

Far too young and a rotten shame.

I'm pretty sure I saw him on Goals On Sunday a couple years back and he described himself as a spuds fan...... he was in Madrid too apparently - cheering them on.

Either way dying at 49 leaving two young kids behind is tragic.

I do recall him and Dicko having a good old blood and guts feud for a few years whenever we played the scum. That's of course when Dicko wasn't busy enjoying his blood and guts feud with Ginola. :D

We sing about Spurds last winning the league in black and white but never about them getting relegated in "colour". Been watching some old Big Match Revisited so funny watching them get relegated, nearly as funny as Manure going down at the hand of Dennis Law.

:barscarf: Was at the home game against Leicester when they got relegated despite winning 2-0, jibbed in with a mate when they opened the gates. :lol:

Sniggering in the corner of the Shelf /Park Lane, funny as féck. :mrgreen: The team came out for the fans that was even more of the cringe factor! Seem to remember we had to do a swerve 'cause they were starting to rumble us, we must have been the only Gooners in the ground! :lol:

I really love watching football from that era. BT Sport made a great documentary recently called ''Too Good to Go Down'' about Man United's relegation. Under Tommy Docherty they made an exciting return to the 1st division, playing some of the most exciting football around a ... Spurs got walloped 7-0 at Anfield :D

On a slightly different note, has anyone noticed how the YouTube recommendations system is getting worse? I've had some absolute obscure, unfathomable shite suggested to me recently that I cannot for the life of me work out what caused it (at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it :oops: ) but none more disgusting than Spurs 5-0 Arsenal or that sickening 3-1 FAC SF in ' 91. FU@CK OFF YOUTUBE! :censored:

Yeah was at that one when we beat them 1-0 at Highbury which helped send them down, good day that was
