I reckon that every Arsenal fan will be enjoying their Sunday dinner a bit more than usual this week, especially those of us set for a traditional English with plenty of potatoes, because the Gunners certainly roasted and mashed the spuds from down the road yesterday.
However, are we just going to enjoy this brief moment in the sun after a first win over the north London rivals for some time, or do we think that this result and the performance that earned it shows that Arsenal can wrestle back and keep the dominance over Tottenham that we have enjoyed for so long?
Has beating Spurs yesterday given back to you Arsenal fans out there the belief that Arsene Wenger and the current squad of players can defy the critics and mount a serious title challenge this season?
I think it should have, especially with the manner that Arsenal achieved this crucial three points. TV pundits like Gary Neville and Graeme Souness, who are usually highly critical of our team and club heaped praise on Arsenal this week and suggesting that we are better than we have been for many years.
If they feel that the current Gunners side can do things right, shouldn’t we Arsenal fans share some of that belief?
