Arsenal V Tottenham Match Preview

It’s the weekend of the North London Derby and there is normally so much hype around this game and so much excitement but I just haven’t seen that this week. What I have seen is nervous fans, on both sides to be fair. There is always so much banter between these two sets of fans on Twitter and Facebook but this week there has been none, I haven’t even bantered with my Spud mates either.

There is unrest at both clubs and probably for similar reasons. Arsenal are struggling and this is their worst start in 30 years. We have only taken 10 points in 24 games and this is a big sign that something isn’t right. On a team sheet our team looks good, not the best but they are a team that should be capable of getting better results. We are not moving forward enough in my opinion and because of that it just doesn’t make sense how much our defence is struggling.

So Wenger starts with a different formation this weekend, I’m not entirely sure that it’s the best game for us to try out a new formation but I’m not going to criticise because it might be the change we need to make us tactically stronger. I just pray and hope he doesn’t play Ramsey on the wing. We have a few players facing last-minute fitness tests which is a worry. Walcott (buttock), Giroud(calf/hamstring) and Sagna with a leg injury.  We have the bonus of Jack Wilshere back from his suspension and Szczesny could be back in the first team which will be a huge relief for us. No more Mannone lol.

I am really hoping we can get that win , it seems so much more important to win for results this week as opposed to getting one up on our rivals. If we lose another game then it is another bad week for the team to have to try to recover from morale wise.

So let’s sing our hearts out for our Arsenal this weekend and cheer our Gunners onto to victory.

    ill be perfectly honest and ill probably get shot by fellow spurs fans for it but I really couldn’t give a rats who wins out of either of us this wknd, never felt so disenchanted with the way things are at the club, people can blame avb and his tactics but levy is strictly the man whos helped cause the downward spiral, sacks redknapp just cos arry wanted more transfer funds which he quite rightly deserved having consolidated us as a top 4 team (yeah I agree it should have been 3rd), I had my doubts about avb from the start, especially as he replaced modric and vdv with 2 guys from *COUGHS* Fulham, not to mention the 1 season wonder waste of space Sigurdsson, I could rant on but then a spurs fan might try to convince me we’ll still qualify from the champions league despite our home form leaking more than an incontinent old biddy lol

      Ha ha Reginald it’s refreshing to hear some straight down the line honesty. The truth is both our clubs are being badly run by the Jewish Bad Brothers co lol. Arsenal and Spurs fans are very much in the same situation but for slightly different reasons. I think thats why there is no banter, we’re silently thinkijng we’re both in the same boat here. We replaced Van Persie with two strikers that combined still don’t equal his talent. Good players but not Van P. Thanks for the comment

        think its bout time both sets of our fans united to get rid of these idiots so we can both crack on with getting better players and getting the banter back up to full pelt lol
