Whilst it is funny to see Tottenham in relegation trouble I'd advise Gooners to forget about them and concentrate on our season. Obviously Arsenal are in much better shape than Tottenham but the fact is we are in fifth place and playing catch up for a Champions League place. Both clubs appear to be underachieving.
The rest of the season is so important for Arsenal. So now is the time for every Gooner to pull together and get behind the team for the final part of the campaign. In Andrey Arshavin we have a signing we have been asking for, lets hope he can be a catalyst for better things at Arsenal.
Tomorrow will be a difficult game. Arsene Wenger has a fantastic record against Tottenham despite it being their cup final. Lets hope that record continues, I think it will. I've no doubt that there will some very hairy moments but I'm confident we will come away without defeat.
North-London derbies are so difficult to predict. A point away from home is usually a good one. After todays results I think we need more than a point tomorrow. It has become a must-win game. We can't drop many more points and expect to preserve our top four status.
Bearing that in mind, and the fact Tottenham will come at us, I'm sure of an Arsenal victory. Adebayor has great scoring form against Tottenham and he is due a goal. In fact I believe this whole Arsenal team are due goals! It's been a while since we gave someone a hiding and surely a big win is just around the corner.
Robin van Persie is crucial to Arsenal at the moment and has really stepped up to the plate since Cesc Fabregas' injury. At times it seems he is single-handingly dragging Arsenal through the season. The Boy Wonder has matured so much this season. It clear that he has always had so much talent, the problem was the niggling injurys he always picked up. Hopefully he is over the niggles now and will be fit for the remainder of the season, we need him.
I'm confident Arsenal will finish in the top four. It's going to be tight getting there but we will. The season starts now. Lets begin it with a victory over Tottenham tomorrow.
Keep it Goonerish.........
