Normal Service Has Resumed

After a season and a bit of really weird results with regards to the North London rivalry, it finally appears that 'Normal Service Has Resumed'.

Arch rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, last year pushed the mighty Gunners closer to winning the North London bragging rights than they have in the previous ten campaigns, some Gooners even worried that the Spuds may even be close to over taking us with regards to overall play and league positions.

To be fair, Tottenham did have an excellent season last year, finally, after an extremely long absence getting the lilywhites back into Europe, but even at their best, they couldn't edge past a below par Arsenal.

The 12 months of gloating and taunts from that lot up the road was only made bearable by a last day reprieve, that rather aptly saw the last ever game at Highbury finish in the Gunners pipping Spurs to that vital Champions League spot.

Few Gooners thought Spurs could repeat their Champions League place challenge this season, but almost all Spuds believed it possible. However, as it transpires, it doesn't look very likely after all.

We have had many visitors to this site informing us that Arsenal are a team in decline, whilst it will not be long before the team from White Hart Lane surpass us in a blaze of glory, however, it brings me great pleasure in announcing Spurs challenge as nothing more than a wet fart.

After equally poor starts, well Spurs had been a little worse than ours but you have to give 'em something, it now seems the We seemed have turned the corner with a crushing win over Manchester United followed up with a tidy result against Sheffield United, whereas Spurs just keep on losing.

After a summer of big talk, the WHL faithfull already find themselves with half the points of the Gunners having played an extra game, and with games against two unbeaten teams in Portsmouth and Aston Villa, it seems it won't be long before that gap increases even further.

Very well said. And if those unrealistic disrespectful dreamers hadnt been saying so much nonsense about how they are going to dislodge one of the top 4 and over take the great Arsenal. I wouldnt find it so pleasureable to completely abuse them on how rubbish they are and gloat as much as possible. Before last season i never even thought anything of spurs, i mean after all they arent any kind of competetitor to us. Averging 9th in the league for ten years. However after last season they are firmly on my radar of teams i want to fail miserably and as predicted. They are. Your not singing anymore!

Thierry Henry (who the Spurs lot slag off constantly) has scored the same amount of league goals as the entire Spurs team has this season, and he's played two less games than them all!!!
Rocky7
they slag him off. But could you imagine if it was announced they were signing him. They would be extatic. Same as if it was announced that they were getting a 60k seat stadium. But they just slag it off cos its all they can think of. Even though its stupid. But hey what do you expect ? Stupidity is a given from them.
TheBeast
we r goin 2 knock out spurs and get u in the next round martin allens mkarmy
the rodge
Nothing would make me laugh more Rodge!!! Please make it happen :D
Rocky7
i hope you do knock out spurs. You should be able to, they are rubbish. Also you will be playing them quite regularly soon when they get down to your league. So it will give you a heads up.
TheBeast
And whats even funnier is they are looking to buy sherringham. hahaha such ambition. damn thats made my day
TheBeast
surely that sheringham story can't be true!?! I cannot believe they would, it beggars belief, surely? »»Arsene Knows««

I think that you put it best in describing the spurs' challenge as "nothing more than a wet fart"! I watched the l'pool match on tv and aside from fluffing one great chance the spurs did nothing for the entire game. should have been 5-0 if liverpool took their chances
JakeB
The Spuds must be pig sick. I've been telling them all summer not to get their hopes up, that with Europe and maybe more than two cup games, this would be the test. Those same erudite Spuds are now calling for Fat Jol's head. All that and they never apologised to the marriott hotel for defaming them!
Little Dutch
jenas' miss at anfield was absolutely amazing - almost as amazin as Kanu for the baggies but knowhere near as enjoyable.. maybe they should re sign ardiles & villa and get chas n dave round for a knees up "IN DE CUP FOR TOTTINGHAN"
sameoldarsenal
Strange how we've yet to hear from our friend COCKeril?
Little Dutch
oh very true LD - its all gone very quiet over there - cock-er-doodle-DONT ;-)
sameoldarsenal

cockeril

Gunner_Lover
theres a spurs shirt burried about 5 foot underneath your new pitch ha ha ha...
novaspur
yeah what is all this "spurs fan shirt buried under our pitch" - is it meant to be bad luck ? wtf? all it says to me is that spurs are buried.. which is about right - you can imagine the chav £4 an hour labourers sayin " durrr I know lets bury a spurs shirt?" I mean come on what exactly does it achieve? you bury a white shirt and we sh** all over you - It dont change anything chavs..
sameoldarsenal
gooood statt rocky. he scored with his head aswell. what was that miss by jenas ??? hahaha
abdleb
if there's a spuds shirt under our stadium there must be a whole graveyard under yours... thats why the other side keep scoring...
gazzap
my juju sources tell me that as long as the shirt remains buried at the grove the spuds will remain in division 1. witch docteryhoodness only works on the guilty. enjoy coca cola league spudsters. you deserve it BWAH :)
mish
I'm gonna say something very naughty, alright here it comes, ok here i go now - 'I dont like spurs.' Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I am such a bad boy :)
yusufine
Weve seen the likes of Ipswich, West Ham and Everton all come 5th or above and then the next season not achieve anything like that position the difference is none of those teams spent nearly 30 MILLION POUNDS during the transfer window! That S***s shirt is just where it belongs getting walked over beneath a great red and white football team.
iceman10
Cockeril, you dissappoint me!!! Hurl some abuse our way man! Did the Lily White Army beat a tactical retreat or what? Last time I checked, the army was about to overrun us!! Shame.
Gaga
perhaps the buried shirt is symbolic in that spurs will forever be underneath the mighty Arsenal
JakeB
it is very simple, each prem year we have seen a team play better and finish higher than they should, leciester, birmingham, everton, wigan, spurs and now portsmouth.... they fade away but we always have a couple of teams that rise above expectation, spurs had their moment, but the fans seem to call them mighty ? for what ?
PUREGOLD
looks like that old joke can be dusted of the shelf for their next two games at least"whats the difference between them and the star of david"?
arsenor
watch out Chelsea, Barcelona... make room for the new champions of world football!!
cockeril
thanks for your support cockerril im glad you have finally realised we are the best team in europe!!!!!!!!
Gunna4lyfe
Nooooo Cickeril!!!!! I WANT SOME ABUSE. THE LILY WHITE ARMY COMING TO ***** US UP!! Whatever happened to that?
Gaga
lol, you can't beat a bit of rivalry!
The Fear
Title for sure and Champions league will be min! maybe even a fa cup in there too! Watch out everyone Arsenal are about to dominate the football world!!!
cockeril
Glad you see it our way cockeril. :)
yusufine
Ok Cockeril, so we see how you expect the red army to do, but what about the white one? Seen that "Mind the Gap" thing? Some boys are clever, no?
Gaga
Only top 6 this season after dreadfull start. Still gelling.
