Team News: Spurs vs Arsenal

So the first North London Derby of the season is only moments away, and the two managers have names their starting line ups.

As expected Alex Song partners Mertesacker in central defence, whilst bizzarely Francis Coquelin starts in central mindfield ahead of the always impressive Frimpong (I hear Chuck Norris wears Frimpong pyjamas?!).

I' give my right nut to wallop Spurs today ... but I'd settle for a scrappy 1-0 win.

Ramsey doesn't really seem good enough to play in midfield just yet. Coquelin has been excellent. Walcott never seem to do enough for me. Big test now. Do we have the character?

This is the worst Arsenal team I've seen in my time as a supporter. I've never been one to be too hysterical but Wenger has some serious questions to answer. I don't think he'll be here next season. How have we become this bad? This is just terrible.

Pretty even game 1st half, continental in tempo due to the weather. Ramsey is having a mare - looks like he'd struggle to pass wind let alone a ball. Scum had to cheat to go a goal up. Lot of players need to step up and be counted esp Gerv and wally who have been totally ineffectual. I'm almost glad it's them that have scored 1st as I'd fear the worst if it was us.

gunnerkid107 - you're completely wrong; Wenger will be here next season. It's clearly a transitionary period for us, so I'm not getting too worked up about it, my expectations have been watered down considerably. We're missing Jack big time. You can't afford to carry people in these games and Rambo and Walcott have to deliver more. At least it's only 1-0, coz in the past we could have gone further behind quite quickly. Such a shame about our defensive injuries, could have really done with Song in there. I'd like us to play Song and Conquelin in midfield more often, esp away from home. I'd take a draw now.

We've been in a transitionary period since '07.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not one of those people who want us to lose. I'd love a comeback here
