Arsenal v Spurs build up -“To enjoy the derby in the best way is to win it,”

This may be the biggest derby of the year for Arsenal and Tottenham fans, but in reality a meeting between a team in 7th and a team in 10th in the League table is hardly a big pull for the neutrals. Nevertheless us Gooners will be glued to the TV watching events unfold and begging the Gunners to just win this ONE game, for us the fans.

Many fans think that the interest in the North London Derby has been diluted by the influx of foreign players to the Premier League, but it doesn’t take long for the atmosphere to sink in. One Tottenham player that has played in many derbies is the Frenchman Hugo Lloris, who has been a Spud for 9 years now and made over 350 appearances for our rivals.

He told the official Spurs website: “First of all, it’s just the taste, to enjoy the derby in the best way is to win it,”

“It’s not necessary to see the table. This is a game about pride, and even more because both teams are not in the place we expected.”

“We are in a good moment, but we have to keep our feet on the floor, stay calm, recover well and prepare for the game as best as we can,”

“We need everyone ready. The squad is quite complete and we can see in any training session that players want to play, players want to help the team and that’s good, the mentality is there.”

Both teams are in good form, if you can overlook the defensive clangers. Arsenal have scored 10 goals in our last 4 games, while Tottenham have notched up 15 in their last 5. Hopefully our strikers will outscore theirs and Leno will have a blinder!


  1. This team will beat the spuds, believe me


    Cedric Luiz Mari KT

    Partey Xhaka


    Saka Auba Pepe

  2. Team personnel change so often very few players are long term senior Gunner players.
    Bellerin is our only long term gunner out of a squad of 30.
    The rest are mainly players from Europe here for 3-4 years and only here for the money.
    An era is like two or 3 seasons.

      1. It took me plenty second to know that you made mistakes about 3 and not 2 players 😃.
        Chambers was the one that got away 😃
        That’s to let you know that the NLD is gradually fading off though the winners of it will still fulfilled.
