THE only reason Tottenham supporters turned up at Wembley was to see the biggest game of THFC history v Barca.... And it was only a friendly!! Laughing gooner, IG10 LINNERS (L&B 06/08) I was at the Emirates cup. 50,000 was the amount through the gate for both games scheduled that day and Rangers had the majority!! If you actually got out of your armchair you might have a danny before giving it potatoes you mug. London Scouse I REALLY enjoyed reading you responses whilst I tucked into some lasagne. Oh and the Wembley Cup? Didnt Spurs lose to Celtic reserves? Linners, DA1 STEVEO, was Tottenham ever sponsored by Pony mate? Enough said. Matt west ham, BR3 WE wont go up AGAIN this year, due to the bad karma of playing in yet another WRONG QPR shirt -- they are ALWAYS UNLUCKY! Final placing 10th. Kieran, NW6 GOOD luck to new London club Fisher FC, reformed by its supporters! Kent Premier League is where the real football will be played! Joe, SE16 SICK of crowing Aussies in west London this weekend. Come on England, shut them up.

The Arsenal boss was hugely disappointed that Walcott (right) was selected to play for the Under-21 team at the European Championships in June after his season was disrupted by injury. Walcott subsequently played in all five games at the tournament in Sweden as Stuart Pearces Young Lions made it to the Final. But after being back in training with the Gunners for just two weeks and playing for only 45 minutes in pre-season -- against Valencia on Saturday -- the 20-year-old has now been named in Fabio Capellos senior squad for the friendly against Holland in Amsterdam. Wenger might have been expected to voice his concern again that one of his most coveted stars was running the risk of suffering burn- out, with his Arsenal career still to fully ignite. But this time the Gunners boss insists the international call-up will help, rather than hinder, Walcotts progress. England play a friendly and Capello told me they would call him up so I am not surprised, said Wenger. He needs competition so if he plays it is good for us. Walcotts young Arsenal teammate Jack Wilshere will also get the chance to shine on the international stage after he received his first England Under-21 call-up for the friendly against Holland in Groningen tomorrow. The 17-year-old attacking midfielder starred in Arsenals recent Emirates Cup win against Rangers in front of an impressed Fabio Capello. Michael Owen, meanwhile, who is desperate to get back into the England set-up, says he cant wait for the new season to start so he can score Premier League goals for Manchester United and prove Capello is wrong to keep overlooking his talents. He said: Its down to the management. I have just got to continue doing well and see where it takes me. Now I just want the season to start. BY NEIL MARTIN Chamakhs still dreaming of Arsenal ARSENAL target Marouane Chamakh is having sleepless nights over his on-off transfer saga. The Morocco striker (left) scored as Bordeaux got their Ligue 1 title defence off to a winning start with a 4-1 victory over Lens yesterday. Last week Arsene Wenger admitted he was ready to call off his pursuit of the 25-year-old, unless the French outfit dropped their valuation, and Chamakh is desperate for the clubs to reach a compromise. I am not sleeping as well as I normally do, he said before last nights game. If Im going to Arsenal, so much the better. I hope itll be sorted very quickly.
