In the 2006 North London Derby, Spurs played truly well throughout the game and scored the only goal in the video game at the 1 hour mark. While they were scoring the goal, one of the Toolbox players was lying injured in the centre of the field. Arsene was furious that Spurs scored the objective despite the fact that they had a gamer down and felt it wasn’t good sportsmanship. Although Thierry Henry came in later and levelled the video game, Arsene didn’t leave that pitch delighted and even refused to shake Spurs’ Supervisor’s hand.
