Yes! You read that correctly! An Arsenal fan has come out and compared Tottenham’s current team to the 2003/04 invincible title-winning team, after their 3-0 win against United on Monday.
Arsenal went on a mesmerising and historic run of 49 unbeaten games across the 2003/04 season, failing to score a goal on just four occasions.
During a talkSPORT segment on Tottenham, an Arsenal fan called in, and much to everyone’s surprise, heaped praise on his North London rivals.
The caller, Danny, had this to say: “It doesn’t even stick in my throat. These guys, they’ve not spent any money, they’ve got their job together during the summer, they’ve set out their stall properly, they are not scared of anyone, they’ve got World Cup-class players in their side and this is probably the best team, pound-for-pound in this country and in this league at the present moment.
“There’s something going on at Spurs that has reminded me of the 2004 Arsenal side. They are playing that kind of football that is exciting and it’s frightening to watch as an Arsenal fan.
“When you watched the ‘Invincibles’, they were awesome, they were frightening, right?
“But I think at Spurs there’s an excitement running through that is not dissimilar to how they were stirring up the fans at Arsenal [in 2003/04]. Every time they got the ball we were like, ‘what is going on here?’
“That is the sort of thing I’m talking about.”
