Madrid Prospect Kanes Arsenal as Spurs Record Rare Derby Win – by Rob Atkinson

Plucky Spuds Kick Arse

Plucky Spuds Kick Arse

Young Harry Kane, the latest product to roll off the Real Madrid talent production line in London N17, is certainly making a case for being able to join Gareth Bale at Tottenham’s mother club sooner, rather than later.

Two opportunist second-half strikes were enough to sink a below-par Arsenal, the Kings of London never quite managing to get into their usual regal stride. Kane’s first goal was an object lesson in instinctive movement and being in the right place at the right time, as the ball zipped across Arsenal’s goal line. Kane found himself in space beyond the far post and finished adroitly. The winner was simply wonderful, a back-pedalling Kane somehow managing to rise to a steepling cross and punch the ball squarely with his forehead to drop into the Gunners’ net.

In the first half, Özil had given the Arse an early lead somewhat against the run of play. Arsenal had other chances, but lacked bite and cohesion. The result, in the end, was a fair one and Spurs now stand a point ahead of their hated rivals – something to look fondly back on at the end of the season when they have been eclipsed yet again by the Emirates men.

Spurs’ umpteenth failure to qualify for the Champions League may not – quite yet – cost them the services of Harry Kane. But the writing is already on the wall; Tottenham are simply not big enough for such a talent and Kane’s imminent international preferment will only make that more blindingly obvious.

For Arsenal, this was just a bad day at the office. They can and will recover; a glance at their remaining fixtures as compared to those of Spurs will make it clear that the Gunners are destined to finish as North London top dogs yet again. But that alone will not heal the wounds inflicted at the Lane today.

The Arse will be able to comfort themselves by winning the war despite losing this battle – and by the fact that they will not have to face local derby opposition that includes Harry Kane, the latest potential Wunderkind headed inevitably for the Bernebeu and the higher-class environment of la Liga.

    When you look at Harry Kane, you should be thinking in terms of Alan Smith. Both of whom lived their childhood dream of playing for they supported all their lives. Unlike Smith, Harry does not have to suffer the fact that the wasters who ran your team had to sell him to save the team from going bankrupt.

    I take it that the reason you need to snipe at Spurs who are currently a mere 35 places above Leeds in the league is due to a shortage of good news at Elland Rd.


    • Last time we met…


      • next bus to woolwich!

        Rob,you need to leave it alone fella, you are a Leeds fan,and if my memory serves me right,Leeds fans are no particular likers of Woolwich dating back to the centenary cup final and beyond. You are bringing your fine football club into disrepute here. Carry on with the diatribe with the Salford lot. COYS! Still you know Spurs fans will comment which is more than can be said of fans of your adopted club. Oh and fyi,Alex pritchard is one of our own;)


  4. Speaking out of your arse again?


  5. MIAOW.

    We could always sell Harry Kane and buy Leeds United.


  6. Awww is someone still a bit upset we relegated you all those years ago, where are you now btw ahah hope you get relegated again youll never be in the prem again thats for sure you scummy cunts. Oh and Harry Kane has just singed a new contract and said he wants to spend the rest of his career at Spurs 🙂 Now get back to farmyard


  7. Rob, is it simply the fact that changing football teams is the last refuge of a scoundrel that has stopped you coming out as an Arse fan? You claim to “admire” them, but you write more anti-Spurs drivel than you do in favour of the momentarily good Leeds United. The Leeds ascendancy was a bit like the Spurs ascendancy in the early 60’s, just a few years later. Both were overtaken by other clubs. The key difference is that Leeds faded into financial ruin and relative obscurity, while Spurs have remained in the top flight ever since, with the exception of one year in the old division 2. The difference continues. Spurs challenge for honours, develop exciting young players, buy exciting talent -and Leeds………don’t. Enjoying your articles, especially as they make us all feel better about our club.


    • I understand you’re having to lean over backwards to compensate for the fact that Spurs haven’t been champions outside of a pensioner’s memory – but I really fear you’re in danger of serious spinal trauma.


  8. I hope your articles are of a better quality than your retorts, Rob.
