Divided Arsenal, something we know all about at Spurs

12:30 pm



Tottenham legend Garth Crooks is a former striker. He formed a great partnership with Steve Archibald and lifted trophies for us, two FA Cups, and the 1984 UEFA Cup against Anderlecht. Now he is a pundit for the BBC and he feels that it is time for Arsene Wenger to take a break.

"No referee who wanted to keep his credibility would have given a free-kick. Besides, it was a brilliant challenge by Alonso and an excellently taken goal. 
"I have an enormous regard for Wenger and his achievements but when you start squaring up to fellow managers and pushing officials you really have to consider whether a break from the profession might be the healthy option. 
"I also sense restlessness among the fans and it would be a great pity if Wenger was forced out instead of given a dignified exit. There’s a lot to be said when an individual can identify the time to move on."

As a Spurs fan I'm happy to see him there, he has done an awful lot for their club, but they now appear to be stagnating, which is great news for us. He divides opinion among Arsenal fans, something we know all about at Tottenham.

The problem with change is, who do you change for? Manchester United have fallen to pieces since Sir Alex Ferguson left, although Jose Mourinho is now sorting them out. Liverpool have only challenged the top four for one season in eight. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

It is the same with fans who complain about Daniel Levy and ENIC. The only people who buy football clubs now are investment groups, not people who are just going to lump their money in, although that is now against Financial Fair Play rules unless it is for infrastructure and then it has to be loans.

Tottenham are moving forward and Levy's demand for the best from everyone is now being seen in the right light. Mauricio Pochettino has proved you don't need to spend fortunes to get into the top four and challenge for trophies. Perhaos a few more fans are now appreciating that setting demanding standards is the way to improve a club rather than just throwing money at a problem.

Garth Crooks Team of the Week

9:39 am


The Premier League Team of the Week Series will run throughout the season, where I'll bring you the Official EA Sports Premier League Tea of the Week and the Individual Player Ratings, where they stand in the list of Premier League players.

As a build up to that each week I'll also be bringing the Team of the Week selects from TV Analysts/Pundits/Experts call them what you will. Now it's the chance of BBC TV Analyst and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Garth Crooks.

Last week he squeezed everyone into a 3-3-1-3 formation which included Christian Eriksen as the only Spurs player and Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal the only player who retained his place from the previous week.

Garth Crooks Team of Last Week

Heurelho Gomes (Watford)
Gabriel (Arsenal)
Virgil van Dijk (Southampton)
Jeffrey Schlupp (Leicester City)
Marko Amautovic (Stoke City)
Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City)
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur)
Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)
Graziano Pelle (Southampton)
Sadio Mane (Southampton)

His team this week is a more conventional 4-2-3-1 and it is no surprise to see the Liverpool stopper as his keeper of the week. Carl Jenkinson returns to his defence, that's twice in four weeks, does he have a soft spot for him?
