It's In Our Hands As Spurs Slip Up

Arsenal are back in the driving seat for 4th place after Spurs were beaten by Manchester United today.

All that is needed between now and the end of the season is simply to win our 4 remaining games, this will ensure Champion's League football at the Emirates next season.

Two goals from Wayne Rooney saw the tiny totts slump to a 2-1 defeat after Jenas grabbed a consolation goal.

This is all excellent news for our beloved Gunners who now have their destiny in their own hands, with the first test of our metal being the must win, most important North London derby in years.

A win is imperative, a draw would leave us needing Spurs to draw at least one game (with us having a far superior goal difference), a loss would all but see us in the UEFA cup next year.

Good news on our side is the injury to Tottenham captain Ledley King who will more than likely miss the rest of the season. Spurs look frail and shakey at the back without the England international, they will struggle against the pace and ferocity of Henry and the trickery of Alex Hleb.

However, nothing in football in a certainty and Saturday will see the most heated, frantic, important London derby for decades.

Bring it on.

Good news about an injury to Ledley King, who else but a poxy gooner could say that about one of Englands squad for the World Cup. Still, I suppose it should be expected from a supporter of a team of frogs and africans.

"Sol Campbell has had a ***** season and does not deserve to go on merit, King has had a great season and does need to go, so do one. Cole I am gutted that he has been injured cos all we have is Bridge left back for England. You are a complete ****, but then again what more would anyone expect from a bunch of french supporting ****s" [Edited by pmust] [Edited by pmust]

Do your *****in' maths right will yer? It's not in your hands till you win on Saturday - and that's IF at this stage. A win or draw for Spurs (and it could happen gooners - believe it!) and Spurs will retain control of their destiny. Be sure not to get too cocky there - and watch your seats after the game:)

Les, there is nothing wrong with my maths, it is all in our hands because if we win all our games we'll finish 4th, yes? So that means we have the power to create our own destiny, can you grasp that? or are are you too much of an idiot?? Hold on, your last comment about our seats has already answered that.

Its a shame you have to say its good news that King is out on two levels, I would like to think you would want to beat our best side, but obvoilsly wrong, and secondly I would like to think you would want King to be fit and healthy for the England squad! but I guess like the previous comment, you will have all your french flags flying for the world cup, very sad

Les, we should watch our seats after the game? LMAO, yes a hooligan posts threats via a website comment board. You're "hard". dew33, are you incapable of forming a decent sentence without having to swear? Study the English language and then attempt to analyse football.
