Arsenal Plot Tottenham’s Downfall

Tottenham’s recent problems are down to one mane and one man only Wenger.

 

It is no secret that over the years Arsenal Football Club has been trying to undermine the North London rivals, from moving to their own “backyard”, to having a station renamed after the club, Arsenal have been getting under Tottenham’s skin. 

 

In the 1970’s Arsenal parachuted former Arsenal favourite Terry Neil to mastermind the demise of Spurs. Neil failed in this task and the Spurs hierarchy realised what was happening, but Neil had laid the foundations, and Spurs were soon to be relegated.

 

Another former Arsenal player and manager, George Graham, took the reigns at White Hart Lane in the 1990s. Spurs fans despised him; especially as he held shares, Arsenal and his garden had an Arsenal badge. George was cunning; he won Spurs a trophy to mask his real mission, relegation from the Premier League. His plan went wrong when a new chairman sacked him.

 

This was not the end of Arsenal’s involvement with the demise of Spurs.  Arsenal had used Danmen Comolli as chief European scout for seven years. The plan was easy, Spurs were looking of a Director of Football, Comolli had all the credentials, and he had brought the likes of Anelka, Vieira, and Clichy to Arsenal, more importantly he was armed with Wenger’s “hit-list. Levy fell for it completely. Along came a host Arsenal “targets”, Didier Zokorra the best enforcer in France football, Benoit Assou-Ekotto the best hopeful in France football, Adel Tarabt the best left back in France football, Younes Kaboul the best centre back in France, Kevin-Prince Boateng the best midfielder in Germany. Comolli was getting all these players for Martin Jol and Jol loved it, he was signing off on all transfer, thus there was no paper trail to Arsenal man at the Lane. The inevitable happened, Jol was sacked, and Comolli whispered into Levy’s ear that the right man was Ramos.

 

Ramos had done well in Spain, where he had no involvement in buying players, and where everyone spoke Spanish. Comolli knew that Ramos would be unable to learn English and scene was set for another summer of transfers. Comolli hand convinced Ramos that Keane was a has-been, Berbatov is a moody player, and bad for team morale, so out went Spurs two main goal scorers for the last two years and in came an overrated Russian and a diminutive Mexican.

 

Comolli needs to hang around until the January window to help the new Tottenham manager make a few more “astute” signings before he leaves and resumes his role as Arsenal’s chief European scout.
