Arsenal v Spurs Confirmed Teams – Arteta plays – Ozil back on wing

“You enjoy it after the game if you win,”

“You feel suddenly on the Monday before the game that something has changed and you wonder first of all what has changed. Of course it’s the tension before the derby.

“Before you have the tension and you have the focus to prepare and to give your team the best chances to win the game. That’s what you focus on. Satisfaction comes with the feeling that you have done a good job so let’s do a good job first.”

says Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal v Tottenham Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Tottenham Preview, Predicted line up and score line by KJ

We used to always be heavy favourites coming into a North London Derby before Redknapp managed to level the playing field with his Tottenham side, but ever since his departure, Tottenham have been slowly but surely dropping back down into their place as a top 8 club. We now go into this game as strong favourites and with all our world class talents, our fans are expecting something special.

Even El Tel urges Arsenal to sign more players!!!

Former England manager Terry Venables has no reason to want Arsenal to do well, having played for and been manager of our fierce north London rivals Tottenham, but even he is desperate for Arsene Wenger to see sense and see that the squad needs some top quality players bringing in to allow us to fight for major honours, as an Evening Standard report reveals.

Venables feels that the Gunners are on the edge of being able to challenge the likes of Chelsea and Man City, but unless Wenger signs another two players before the transfer window closes, which is looking increasingly unlikely, then Arsenal are set to come up short again.

Spurs to bid for Arsenal target Draxler! Ha Ha Good luck spuds…

This is pure comedy gold for Arsenal fans, although if there was even the slightest chance of it actually being successful, I would certainly not be smiling. Our north London rivals, Tottenham, must have got their hands on something very powerful and mind-bending to smoke if this transfer rumour report by Metro is true.

Tottenham try to hijack Aurier transfer as Arsenal dither!!

This had better not happen, Arsenal fans, or I will not be a happy camper. The suggestion that Arsenal could miss out on the summer transfer of the Toulouse right back Serge Aurier is bad enough, but to see the talented youngster go to White Hart Lane to play for our local rivals would just take the biscuit.

That is what the spuds’ new manager, Mauriciao Pochettino, is planning though, according to a Daily Mail report. The Argentinean coach, who did so well with Southampton, is looking to boost his squad with the clear goal of finally finishing above the Gunners, and Aurier is one of the players he thinks can help.

Come on Arsenal…don’t let Spurs sign Remy!!

Loic Remy has not exactly hidden the fact that he would like to be an Arsenal player. He came to watch the Gunners play at the Emirates stadium towards the end of last season (honestly, guv, just to watch) and has spoken about how his role model was Thierry Henry.

Add to that the fact that he says he wants to be playing in the Champions League and his QPR boss Harry Redknapp admitted that there was a fairly small release clause in his contract, and most Arsenal fans are wondering why Arsene Wenger has not already signed the French striker up. Remy may get another chance to showcase his skills for France against Nigeria today, which might just tip the balance for him.

Come on Wenger! Dawdling lets Spurs swoop on Arsenal transfer target

I am trying to maintain my mood of optimism, but this is Arsenal we are talking about. That old familiar feeling is starting to creep over me, deja vu style, and I can just picture myself around halfway through August, with the Premier League season already started, thinking what the hell is going on!?!

Last summer was supposed to be the one in which Arsenal fans could finally look forward to a transfer window in which all the talk would be about the players coming in rather than the ones leaving. But it turned out to be a refined type of torture.

Loic Remy hints he will join Arsenal – not Spurs!

The French striker Loic Remy, who famously was at the Emirates to watch Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, is apparently close to a move to the Spuds according to a report in the Daily Star.

They reckon that Spurs have already started negotiations with his parent club, QPR, and a transfer fee has already been decided between the clubs, but they also report that Remy has stated that he will only move if it is to play Champions League football.

The striker, who scored 14 goals with mid-table Newcastle this season, is quoted as saying: “I miss the Champions League.

Happy St. Totteringhams Day Arsenal Fans – Or is it?

Happy Days!

Happy Days!

It is a strange one for Arsenal fans, but we have got reason to be happy today. The Gunners go into their last two Premier League games already assured of a Champions League place for next season, because of Everton’s defeat by Man City, and we still have the FA Cup Final to look forward to.

The Wenger trophy is ours again and the usual Spuddy challengers are not even close, but it feels like the Gunners really missed a trick this season. With a bit more action in the transfer market or a bit less action in the treatment room, we could have been champions.

Arsenal could replace Vermaelen with another Ajax star

The current Arsenal captain, Thomas Vermaelen, was just 24-years old when he signed on for the Gunners, but he had already spent six seasons with Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie, notching up 130 appearances for the club and becoming captain in his final season.

Ajax, currently managed by Frank de Boer with Dennis Berkamp as his assistant, have a great reputation for developing young players, so it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger and Arsenal keep an eye on their up and coming talent, especially with the Bergkamp connection.

Why Arsenal must NOT focus on FA cup alone…

We need continued focus in both the EPL and in the FA cup! by Ash

I have seen countless people say that Arsenal should forget the Premier League and just focus on the FA Cup now, however this is most certainly not the right approach to take.

After witnessing yet another high scoring disaster against Chelsea at the weekend, I think our title hopes are certainly dead and buried now, even if Vermaelen wishes to say otherwise. Seven points behind the leaders, whilst Liverpool and Manchester City continue to stride forward, I think the most we can aim for is third place at least. Although I think fourth is more a reality, Arsenal still don’t have it easy and we cannot afford to give up on the Premier League and put all our efforts into an FA Cup trophy instead.

Why Arsenal can thank their lucky stars

Lucky, lucky Arsenal by Sam P

First of all, let me make it clear that Arsenal have not had a lucky season! Injuries, cup draws and refereeing decisions have consistently been against us and the weight of all that has finally told. But maybe the football gods have got bored of kicking us and Arsene Wenger around because, as bad as it seems now, Arsenal have a couple of big reasons to feel lucky.
