The current season is already one that most Arsenal fans would like to forget about quickly but it could get a lot worse if the shift of power in north London that Tottenham fans have been banging on about and then shutting up about year after year could finally be set to happen, for one year at least.
The Gunners have been in worse situations than we are now compared to our local rivals and have closed quite big gaps to finish above the spuds a few times, so on the surface we should not be too worried at the moment as we sit on the same points and are only below them on goal difference.
What worries me, however, is the respective form of the two teams and the emphatic manner of their win and performance against Fulham at the weekend should have all Arsenal fans worried. As reported by the Evening Standard the Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic was fulsome in his praise of their opponents, specifically talking about the teamwork, togetherness and tenacity of the Tottenham team.
That is about the opposite of what people are saying about Arsenal in recent weeks and unless Wenger and the players turn things around and fast, could this be the season when Gooners do not get to celebrate St. Totteringham’s day?
