The worst XI ever to wear a Tottenham or Arsenal shirt
November 2, 2016
The North London Derby has seen some great footballers on both sides; we’ve been graced with the likes of Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, David Seaman, Jurgen Klinsmann, Paul Gascoigne and Gareth Bale.
But not every player to step on the pitch for these sides is class, some are shite – like, really, really, really, bad.
Here’s a 4-3-3 formation of the worst players to play in North London.
Manuel Almunia – GK
If his bleached blonde mop wasn't enough, his mistakable gaffes in net were sure to do the trick. He managed to get beaten by Ronaldo, from 40 yards out, on a free-kick, at the near post.
Andre Santos – LB
Another baffling signing by Wenger, Andre Santos would've actually helped Arsenal by stepping off the pitch.
Dubbed the Ginger Pele, Doherty was particularly useless at the back and up top. Really just a shit player.
Gilberto – RB
Gilberto, seen tackling his own man, was as ineffective as a towel in a rain storm. In his first appearance for Spurs, he essentially eliminated the club from the UEFA Cup in 2008.
Sebastien Squillaci – CB
That's the face of a man who couldn't believe that Wenger actually signed him. Still don't know the reasoning behind his transfer, but he simply couldn't make it at the Emirates.
Amaury Bischoff – CM
Have you ever heard of this bloke? Hell no. He was signed for just over $300,000 by Arsene Wenger and didn't do jack shit. What a waste.
Paulinho – CM
Paulinho, one of the Bale money signings, didn't do much in a Spurs shirt. He was overhyped and he underperfomed and was sent to China.
David Bentley – CAM
He was talented, but he was a dumbass and fucked with Harry Redknapp. His career went to shit and only had himself and a childish act to blame.
Niklas Bendtner – FW
Lord Bendtner had all the tools to make it work, but continually shit the bed. He managed very little for the Gunners, but gained a legendary following.
Roberto Soldado – FW
Sources say he actually never wanted to score for Spurs, it was ploy to get a transfer away from England. The striker was a huge waste of Bale money.
Maroune Chamakh -FW
The only thing worse than his playing ability was his his hair. Chamakh was a rushed buy at the end of the transfer window by Wenger that made absolutely no sense.
Arsenal may have the lion’s share of the terrible footballers, but Spurs are still shit.
Even when they’re unbeaten, they’re still below the Gunners.
