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.

The clichéd response to Arsenal's defeat at White Hart Lane by the media's laziest was inevitable.
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 Arsène 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 host Arsenal in what is one of the most important North London Derby's of the past few seasons. This year Tottenham finally have the chance to finish ahead of Arsenal by a rather impressive margin if they continue the great run of form that they are currently riding.
With the Gareth Bale show™ in full force, all eyes will be on White Hart Lane tomorrow for a littlerendezvous between Arsene and AVB's men. Just as Real Madrid are showing signs of rising above their eternal rivals, Spurs sit above the Gunners in the table and are on course for that precious 4th spot in the Champions League.

Arsenal head to White Hart Lane on Sunday to play Tottenham in the north London derby, with Champions League spots potentially at stake.

Every time a North London derby comes along, it is billed as the most important ever. However, in the past two seasons this media hype has not been unfounded, these matches are pivotal for both teams, especially when it's so late in the season.
Oops. Two weeks have zipped past with nary a word. There are mitigating factors, though. Straight after the Blackburn game I took a wrong turn in Chipping Barnet and ended up 6,000 miles away, and as luck wouldn't have it, it was the middle of the day when we played Bayern and I was in a meeting. I now have an increased admiration for any global lunatics who follow the Arsenal before breakfast, after the pubs have closed or in the middle of the night.
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.
It's difficult to imagine that there's been a more keenly awaited North London derby since April 2004. From the neutral perspective, the ingredients for a spellbinding game froth tantalisingly in the cauldron. These are two teams that couldn't do cagey if they were in a cage fight with Nicholas Cage.
