Breaking news Spurs ask for the last 55 years to be replayed..... :p

I mean talk about opening a whole can of worms. What about when Arsenal were using their 8th choice left back, and had 9 players out, can we replay those games? Or if a team gets a poor decision from the referee?

It won't happen, I can't believe they have actually asked. I mean how is David Dein going to allow it, after all he runs the FA. ;) :p

Why the big reaction from you all?

Some governing body (FAPL) got it utterly wrong on matchday and wouldnt let us postpone inline with the rule cited.

Are the FA willing to admit the mistake? - now theres the real question!

And to think they've been slating Wenger for moaning :p

I think they have no chance, don't they know David Dein runs the FA and the Premier League and he picked the England squad single handedly ;)

I want the arsenal v spurs game replayed because we rested players, obviously unfair.

Why should they let you postpone? You have a squad for that exact purpose. Of course it's bad luck, but that's football.

Why should West Ham be forced to replay?

Actually I believe West Ham didn't want it delayed to another day to give them time to recover and prepare for the FA cup final.

Which rule are you citing here? As far as I'm aware, as long as the club has enough fit players to complete the match (i.e. at least 11) then there can be no postponement.

I'm a Gooner, but even I had some sympathy with Spurs (honest :) ), but that's now gone after this. The only way I can see Spurs getting a replay is if foul play is found and they go down the legal road, and then it will start getting very messy.

Why would West Ham want to play a game a few days before a cup final?

I'd be interested in knowing which premier managers actually agree with replaying the game. This will make some lawyers millions if the game was allowed to be replayed.

Whole situation is unfortunate for Spurs really, although personally don't think they have a hope in hell of the match to be replayed.

The extra money of the CL would have gone a long way for them.

The fact people fail to notice is that game cost Spurs in the region of around £20m. Now I don't care what morals teams have, if your team had suspected food poisoning, the game should have been delayed/suspended.

Spurs were told to get out and play or loose the match leaving them with no other choice.

There's no reason in asking for a replay even though nothing will come of it but the harm was done when they were forced to play the game loosing the CL spot and up to £20m.
