http://www.hamhigh.co.uk/archived/2003/1107/sport/asp/arsenal.asp Alex Fynn, quoted in this story, makes the point that the most significant difference between Arsenal and Sp*rs right now is the manager. I agree with that about 85% - David Dein is underrated, I think. I also agree with the implied message in this story which is that, contrary to what I expect most fans would say, the manager *is* actually bigger than the club. Earlier this week, Wenger was accused of "taking the piss" when he pointed out that Arsenal and Tottenham have similar resources. Take it however you will - Arsene was either being self-congratulatory, or he was saying Sp*rs are chronic underachievers. I've already done a minor analysis of what the Bruce Rioch era might have looked like for the Gunners (needless to say it wasn't pretty). Just think for a minute - would most of us be here had Wenger been hired by Sp*rs?
