Form doesn't matter in derbies.
That’s such a footbaling cliche tbh.
Cliches are cliches because they generally have some weight behind them.
True, but I wouldn't use a cliche as an argument to prove my point.
Whatever happens, this is not going to be an enjoyable game to watch.
Confident about this. No doubts in my mind how this is going to end. Can't wait!
I dunno about you guys but I'd rather talk Icelandic names all day long instead of *****ing about why 65% of our supporters thinking we can win. I'm more surprised about the 35% of yous....I'm afraid you got some xplaining to do. And this is coming from someone with a big strong Icelandic name, follow my lead. We´ll win this one.
Think about the setting, it's all here for our two newest signings to write their name in the Arsenal book of rhymes. They're about to make history in their first ever derby...let's go!!!
If it makes you feel better, they're equally scared ****less because the one thing they can never be certain about (nor we for that matter) is what Arsenal will turn up.
Besides, the fact that the venue is Wembley puts them at a severe disadvantage as far as I'm concerned
The fact that this is a derby means form counts for naught. Play the same team as against Everton (with the exception of having Jack slot in place of Xhaka if he's recovered) & harry them from the start.
We shouldn't allow them time to settle in the same manner we did back in November when we met.
Staying compact & hitting them on the break with blistering pace will keep them pinned in their own half with little support for their front three.
2-1 to the Arsenal.
Home game for us, mate.
Working at Wembley Stadium today....
Excited and nervous...
Really hoping i'll be getting paid to watch us mash some spuds
They'll counter attack us...I think we'll lose...
Nothing to be worried about people, if we lose we’ll be over it in a week! Excited!
Usually, we lose the match before it is even begun when talking nonsense in the Press. This time, I've barely heard any self-bragging in the media by Wenger and the Players.
Seems like they will be focused. Normally am scared about the early kickoff as we usually get whooped, but think things will change today.
Good Morning Ladies and Gents,
Couldn't get a ticket. Didn't fancy buying a ticket off my cousin for £150 to sit in the Spurs end so going to watch it on TV.
I smell goals. Lots of goals today.
We simply have to win this or we kiss goodbye our chances of finishing top 4.
The less-fancied team often performs better in this fixture than the stats and overall picture would envisage. Sadly, at this point in time, we are the less-fancied team in north London.
