Cheer up Arsenal – Tottenham’s troubles are worse! by Sam P.
If there is anything guaranteed to cheer up your average Gooner after an Arsenal performance and result that was, let’s say, not quite as good as we might have hoped, it is for our north London rivals to put on a show that is even worse.
Just like last season when the spuds fluffed it so badly at the end that they not only missed the chance to catch Leicester City but gave us an unlikely St. Totteringham’s day to celebrate by getting hammered by already relegated Newcastle on the final day.
Of course it did not make up for Arsenal’s title challenge going wrong, but it did make us, or me at least, feel a whole lot better about life going into the summer. Now the good old spuds are at it again, dropping the ball in a most entertaining fashion on their return to the Champions League.
I must admit that this week I was struggling to find my usually optimistic outlook about everything Arsenal. We just do not seem to have any oomph about us and were very lucky to beat Southampton and take a point off PSG. Hopefully the likes of Ozil and Sanchez will start to really fly against Hull at the weekend but in the meantime we can all laugh at Spurs.
Oh the looks on their fans’ faces last night as they limped to a home defeat by Monaco (remember the pleasure they took in our loss to the same club) on a night that was supposed to be a landmark one for them at Wembley. Never mind lads, at least you managed to cheer up the neighbours! COYG.
