" 'Arry Time.."

Premier League Stoke City
by Adam Z Lucifer (U10184997) 24 October 2009
comment on the article

I trust you share my outrage at the disgraceful display of favouritism given to 'Arry Redknapp in awarding a whopping 5 minutes added time, or " 'Arry Time" as it is called.

Had his team had enough sense to do a Man Utd and used skill and tenacity to overcome their doughty - yet at the time somewhat over-run - opponents, what miscarriage of justice may have transpired?!

p.s. Well done, by the way.

Why is everyone saying Stoke's style of play is boring, unattractive, negative...?

We know it isn't like watching Arsenal or Brazil, but they don't have the personnel to play like that. What Stoke do deploy though is a traditional British tackling style that is rarely seen today and they do it very well. Some of the tackling on display yesterday was brilliant and it is time defending, tackling and goalkeeping were equally honoured as finely honed skills in the game. Real Madrid showed midweek that all out attack is not the way to win games.

I didn't see many Spurs players complaining to the ref yesterday and Harry Redknapp is always very quick to voice his concerns over refereeing - no qualms yesterday.

worst thing to happen to arsenal is spurs losing today. they will have a point to prove.

I've heard of clutching at straws, but this takes the biscuit!

All I can say to you Spuddie is: BRING IT ON!

As for Stoke, they deserved their victory. Spurs should have scored in the first half but they wasted their chances, Stoke played the better football in the second half and could have gone ahead through Tuncay. The took their goal brilliantly and in the end the result was a fair one.

Tough luck spuddies, and before you start whinging about 'anti-football' teams - just remember, the top 4 have to deal with this week in week out ok

The problem with your assessment is that what I've said is actually true.

You can't just cry Wum, because you're upset with the result.

In the latter part of the second half, Stoke were the better team. Even one of your own in Garth Crooks said the same. Stoke took their chance, you wasted yours

The result was a fair one.

I suggest you look at the stats then you will realize what a very silly statement that is, not that I would expect a sensible remark from an idiot.

I don't begrudge Stoke the win of course they were lucky but we've been lucky this season more than once. You win some and you lose some. I don't want to be like the sad Arsenal supporters who think they deserve to win every game and win the Premiership even though they are so far behind Chelsea and Man Utd.

When Arsenal's inevitable collapse happens, like it does every season it will be just bad luck with injuries, or poor refereeing. Arsenal supporters will blame everything except the real reason they always fail and that's the fact they are just not good enough.

If you add up the time Delap spent drying the ball out before each long throw you will get more than 5 mins.

Makes me laugh how nobody gives Stoke a chance before these games and once again the pundits have egg on their faces.

Of course its goint to be a backs to the wall effort for long periods at Spurs. But what a sucker punch.

well done lads

your team time wasted from the 3rd minute, it was pathetic......every goal kick took at least 20 seconds.

Stoke = Anti-football

Hmmmmmm you had the majority of the possesion, more shots but you lost because we time wasted.

As for the anti football comment I struggle to believe you are that narrow minded

well what can i say. yet again we manage to shoot ourselves in the foot with 5 minutes on the clock. it was the same last season. how fuller was allowed to ghost past players like he did is beyond me. credit to stoke, on any other day we would have had 6, but they dug in and got the result. lets bounce back against Everton and put in a convincing game.....

adam z lucifer, not a man utd fan by anychance are you. 5 minutes. 30 secs a sub, and woodgate injury, even if in the first half, still add the time to the overall at the end of the game. delap polishing the ball, not a sore loser, we didnt take our chances, end of, but come out with a stupid comment like 'arry time, you nugget.......
