Spurs have a very good side so they should enjoy it.

They could become Ipswich of 10s
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dunno about that. Ipswich won both the FAC and UEFA Cup. Spurs (like the young Fabregas, RvP, Nasri, Arsenal side) have only won plaudits for their play rather than silverware.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Really good side, Ipswich. Blew the league three times

They'll have done a ruddy good job if they can reach those heights. One day they may

------------------Lloris
Trippier---Toby---Verts---Rose
----------Dembele-Wayama
----Dele-------Eriksen----Sanchez
------------------Kane

I like the look of Kolasinac (sp?) but haven't seen enough yet. Don't mind Kos but he's not as good as Alderwiereld or Vertonghen. Cech has had a better career than Lloris but is past his best now. Right back is trickier but Bellerin wasn't good last season whereas Trippier has emerged as a good replacement for Walker so far this season. Eriksen has been performing at a higher level than Ozil for a while now. Sanchez gets in because we know of his ability. No Arsenal striker could trump Kane, but as I said above I do rate Giroud as a squad player for any top team and his goal record per game since coming to the PL is very good; he doesn't always get the credit he deserves. Players like Walcottt, Iwobi, Ramsey, Wilshere, all have their moments but just don't deliver consistently compared to Dele and his return in his first two seasons. DM isn't even up for debate, Arsenal would be a much better side had Wenger brought a player like Dembele or Wayama in during the last few years - their defence lacks protection and players lie Coq and Xhaka aren't up to it. Having had the likes of Viera, Petit and Edu you'd think Wenger would recognise the value of a top drawer DM. I think attack wise there's little in it but GK, defence and DMs are weighted so much in our favour based on the last couple of seasons that it ends up looking a very Spurs biased line up. That's not me saying we're miles better, but I certainly wouldn't be swapping squads or managers if offered.

Would Arsenal fans do a straight swap - manager and all players?

Doing a combined XI of the best players on either team and picking majority Spurs players isn't really gloating as they're the better players in that team, and in reality, although you wouldn't admit it you'd take three quarters of the Spurs side at Arsenal.

No trophies is laughable though and really needs to change for anything to be taken seriously, the cocky Spurs fans are idiots i agree.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Agree. They are arguably better than us in all departments and yet we still win cups and have great days like Chelsea last season in the Final which for all their great football they can't match.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like you're enjoying being an Arsenal fan and we're enjoying being Spurs fans. So why the bitterness?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm not bitter just voicing an opinion about why all the unjustified gloating from Spurs fans when you've very little to be so pleased about. Don't get me wrong you've every right to be optimistic and excited about your team but you need to back this up with trophies.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
What a tool

I remember when Woolwich had won nothing for about 8 or 9 years but we're always making the numbers up in the CL, the world was different then, those were the halcyon days when the top 4 trophy was well celebrated and nothing else mattered ...but in these modern politically correct days being in the CL is no longer important, it's all about the silverware ...I don't know what changed
