“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.
All Arsenal fans just love beating Tottenham every year, and this should be no exception. Obviously Wenger had no interest at all in winning the League Cup which is why he made TEN changes from the easy Aston Villa win to rest our top players for this much-more-important clash.
But with our top players available and the defence only needing to worry about Adebayor or Soldado, then I really can’t see this being any less than a massacre in Arsenal’s favour….
Okay here is the starting line-up:
Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs,
Wilshere, Arteta, Ramsey,
Wenger has picked Arteta ahead of Flamini. He is least likely to pick up any cards, but we can also be happy that Mertesacker and Gibbs are now fit enough to make the team. I’m not sure about Ozil being pushed out to the wing again. It seems Wenger is determined to get him to play better out of position. And why is Sanchez back on the bench? Has Wenger decided that he can’t play with Ozil?
Well the stage is set, all we have to do now is watch the goals go in and go out and celebrate afterwards.
COME ON YOU GOONERS!!!!
