Tottenham Vs Arsenal : More Than Just 3 Points At Stake

Good morning to gooners all over the world, and a special one for those of us who still think we have a shout at the title. Of which that shout was thrown another lifeline last night as a determined Toon Army held Man Utd to a goalless draw, normally I’d be excited but each time United play & drop points before us, we go ahead & do exactly the same. Before the players decide to shoot the clubs bid to end the drought again, the might want to consider who our opponents tonight are.

Its the 3rd fixture against our lowly and overly achieving(in the champions league this season) and the reverse league fixture, with the other being in the Carling cup(yeah the same Carling cup in which we were brilliant all the way through & then choked in the final) and I’d rather our players DIE on the pitch than see Sp*ds do a league double over us. We lost the first fixture at home despite going 2 goals up in the first 45 and playing them off the park for 60 minutes only to lose at the death. The last time Sp*ds did a double over Arsenal in the league, dinosaurs were still in existence and we don’t want a repeat of that.

Why? Well winning tonight cuts Utd’s lead to four points and keeps us ahead of Chelski just barely though. So unless we want to fight for 3rd place with City, its best we win and keep fighting. Sp*ds are not exactly at the top of the form table and neither are we so there’s a lot to play, our neighbours on the hunt for fourth place, us the title chase and surviving the pack snapping at our heels then throw in the bragging rights part. A draw is not acceptable.

To team news, (notice how I haven’t mentioned Fabregas’ interview where he apparently said Wenger would have been fired if he was in Spain, he denied saying it that way but its the truth but we don’t need that now) looks like its going to be the same squad going down the road but maybe not the same lineup & formation. A 4-4-2 won’t be a bad idea, or a 4-2-3-1 with Fabregas beside Song, van persie behind either NB52/Chammy with Wilshere on the bench to give us extra goal threat, but I don’t see AW buckling. Sagna returns to the side after missing out at the weekend. So that’s pretty much it. Our away form has topped our home form this season so hopefully we can win tonight.

Possible Formation: 4-2-3-1 : Chezzer-Sagna-Djourou-Kozzer-Clichy-Song-Fabregas-Nasri-Arshavin-RVP-NB52

Prediction : Sp*ds 1 : 3 Arsenal

We’re still keeping the faith not because we’re die hard fans(maybe a little bit) but because we keep getting lifelines, let’s take the initiative tonight and make the title fight one helluva fight.
From wherever you’re reading, have a great day. Your thoughts?
