Anything is still possible for Arsenal by Sam P
Okay Arsenal yet again played against a makeshift team at the Emirates, it it is not the end of the world in this season of shifting tides and crazy results. Leicester had only drawn on Tuesday, Tottenham got beat by West Ham, Man City got slaughtered by Liverpool. Okay Man United managed to beat Watford by the odd goal but that was the only really expected bad result for Arsenal.
We are STILL only six points behind Leicester, we are STILL only three points behind the Spuds, We are STILL four points ahead of Man City and Man United. We have lost three games in row for the first time in ten years but it is now high time that our blip ended, and if we now go on a sizzling unbeaten run then we can still run away with the Premier League title, and where better to begin that run than White Hart Lane?
Let’s look at a few facts. Man United are a bogey team, we hadn’t won at Old Trafford for 10 years – now it’s 11. Swansea are another bogey team and had not lost at the Emirates in the last 3 years. Now it’s 4. But this weekend WE are the bogey team! Tottenham have got an ingrained inferiority complex against Arsenal and we ALWAYS raise our game against them. They haven’t finished above Arsenal in any of the 19 years that Arsene Wenger has been in charge even when they have flattered to deceive. We have only lost twice in our last 10 meeting with the Spuds, and beat them at the Lane last season.
If Wenger and the fans can’t get the Gunners motivated to perform in this game then we really are in trouble, and probably out of the title race for good. But we are playing Tottenham. We have to BELIEVE. We are better than the Spuds and always will be….
