It was a nightmare day for Arsenal fans today, and the cancelation of St Totteringhams Day is now fully official. The Spuds are now an incredible 17 points ahead of us in the table, and Wenger was asked to comment about the size of the gap after the game. “Look, the points are the points. They do not come from heaven, you earn them on the pitch. That’s it.
“Look, whether I believe or not, the gap is there. That is often in the final part of the season, that can go one way or the other without really reflecting the difference between the teams. But I know it’s a good subject for the media.”
Well I think the difference was quite clearly displayed today at White Hart Lane, but Wenger has still not given up on our chances of getting into the Champions League places. “It will be very difficult now, but we have to fight.” he continued. “We have a cup final, we have still a chance to get into the top four and we have to recover from today and prepare for our next games.”
And our next game is against Wenger’s nemesis Jose Mourinho, who is currently on a run of 25 games unbeaten with his Man United side. I doubt very much that Le prof will still have hopes of Top Four after that game!
