If Arsenal had won the North London Derby, the fans may have been able to take another couple of injuries to add to our ever expanding list (that we have every single year) but to have to lose two points AND two important players is just too much to bear right now. It's not even [...]
As much as it was nice to see Arsenal dominate Tottenham in the latest North London derby, we did not manage to carry on from last season and get the win we deserved. And if you are looking for a reason why Arsenal failed to convert their possession into points maybe the first thing you [...]
Arsenal and our local rivals Tottenham went into this north London derby in pretty indifferent form but knowing that a win could and would kick start the campaign. But you would not have known it from the way the game went in the first half. The spuds were awful! I expected them to be in [...]
I have done many shameful things in my life, many things I regret and others which today fill me with embarrassment. You have always been like a son to me which brings me to perhaps the most shameful act of my life, well actually it is more a non-act because sometimes doing nothing is worse than doing something negative .
Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky is a doubt for tomorrow's clash with Chelsea, manager Arsene Wenger has revealed. The Czech veteran scored the winning goal in last weekend's north London derby win at White Hart Lane, but he might be forced to miss the Gunners' trip to their west London rivals. Rosicky, aged 33, will undergo [.
The day after the North London derby can be a great day. As it is today. But we all have to look back just over more than one year to know how miserable it can be. I must say that I was a bit baffled by the fact that it was our [...]
If Wenger said before the match: 'catch them cold' it worked.
What a wonderful way to start the North London derby. Hardly one minute played and Rosicky played the ball in to the path of Oxlade-Chamberlain who controlled it half and then the ball came back to Rosicky who did this time [.
Spurs midfielder Sandro has an interesting build-up to today's north London derby against Arsenal after his team-mates slathered him with birthday cake. The Brazilian star turned 25 yesterday, and Tim Sherwood's squad marked the occasion by caking him in, well, cake. The birthday boy namechecked compatriots Paulinho and Heurelho Gomes as being the main culprits.

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski says he's looking forward to leaving White Hart Lane on Sunday having taken three points from Spurs. The Germany international says he is a big fan of derby matches and is relishing this weekend's north London derby. He told the club's official website: "I've always liked derbies "When I played [.
Arsenal will have midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Kim Kallstrom available to face Tottenham in next weekend's north London derby, according to manager Arsene Wenger.

I just read an interesting article about the injury that Theo Walcott sustained in the North London Derby last weekend. And as it was mentioned in the comment section earlier by one of our readers I think it would be interesting to have a closer look at this.
Half of the of the Soccer Yanks are back from the holidays! Today Dan experimented with adding a video element to the podcast. Let us know what you think. He goes solo and covers a lot of ground: Arsenal's injury woes and related search for more firepower. The FA Cup North London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs and the related fall out.
First and foremost, a humble apology from yours truly. The festive season has been somewhat of a Lampard-sized palace of debauchery, and I simply forgot to write this week's missive on time. In my defence, I found myself shipwrecked off the Amalfi Coast with just a bottle of formaldehyde, a quart of bathtub rum, six exotic dancers and an 1851 Gustave Young Navy Percussion Revolver with Mother of Pearl Handle for company.
Usually there's at least one lip-smacking tie thrown up by the FA Cup 4th Round draw, but this time, the famous balls, handpicked by cardigan afficionado Martin Allen and his cousin Paul Allen, formerly of West Ham, produced little in the way of crunch ties.
On the back of their north London derby win against Spurs, Arsenal drew Coventry at the Emirates while Man City, if they beat Blackburn in the 3rd Round replay, will hostBristol City or Watford.
Preview: An on-form Arsenal side will take on Marseille in their opening Champions League fixture later today, in Southern France. After a stuttering start in the league, the team has bounced back, notching up an impressive series of wins, including the North London Derby and away wins at Fulham and Sunderland.
The North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is typically one of the most exciting and unpredictable matches of the season. While this one wasn't the greatest ever, it was entertaining from start to finish with plenty of key moments, incredible saves and wonderful skill.
Going into Sunday's north London derby, Spurs fans were feeling confident with their club signing players left and right to compensate for Gareth Bale's now official move to Real Madrid and Arsenal fans were literally crying and screaming for their club to make use of their own sizable cash reserves.
Since my last update, we've won away at Fulham and completed the rout of Fenerbache to take our place in Group F in the Champions League. The draw isn't the the easiest one for us but it's appealing to me. Having drawn against Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli beats playing against Sparta Prague or Dinamo Zagreb.
After two exciting weeks of action to get the season going, the English Premier League will have its first "Super Sunday" this weekend with the latest edition of two major derbies Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool vs. Manchester United.

Sky Sports had hyped the game on the basis of it being Tottenham's chance to finish above Arsenal for the first time in seventeen years, and yet that era of dominance seemed forgotten by the time Geoff Shreeves asked ArsÃ¨ne Wenger this question in his post match interview: "Does today's result signal a shift of power in North London?

Tottenham star and February Premier League Player of the Month, Gareth Bale has been one of the biggest talking points of the upcoming North London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.
However, despite all the talk Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that he and his squad will not be scared of the 23-year-old Welshman's achievements as of late, nor of his chances of creating a magical afternoon for Spurs at White Hart Lane:

Tottenham are the current top form club in England after a torrid run of class, and a little luck, in February. Arsenal face a tough challenge in traveling to their bitter rival's famed home ground, White Hart Lane, this afternoon.
Here's this week's Arsecast Extra with myself and James from @Gunnerblog.
On this week's show we look back at the the 1-1 draw with Sp*rs, try and make sense of Arsene Wenger's team selection, the injuries we picked up and all the rest of the derby fallout. As well as that we answer questions about Abou Diaby as a DM, why we concede the first goal so often, this season's team compared to last season's and loads more.
We're in that strange lull between defeat and the next game. That the next game is a North London derby means the next couple of days are going to be jam-packed, but right now there's not a lot happening.
There's focus on Stan Kroenke and the issue of his company being paid £3m for 'strategic and advisory services'.
The importance of a North London derby in itself is without question. In recent seasons they've taken on extra significance due to our battle with that lot for the top four. They've actually had something to play for.
Today is similar. There are just 6 points between us, although we do have a game in hand, but after yesterday's results we've got a chance to push back towards the top of the table and involve ourselves well and truly in the title race.
FA Cup third round today and the small matter of a North London derby to entertain us.
The last time the two sides met in the cup was in the 2000-1 season when we played them in the semi-final at Old Trafford. Goals from Pires and Vieira saw us through that day. Today, the manager has something of a balancing act on his hands in terms of his squad.
Spurs travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool and look cracking value at 4 with William Hill to secure another three points and extend their unbeaten run.
The Lilywhites 2-1 victory over Arsenal in last weekend's North London derby meant that they have now gone 12 consecutive games in the top flight without defeat for the first time, and they have not lost in any of their last four games against The Reds.
