Arsenal and Spurs Release Joint Statement

Arsenal and Spurs Release Joint Statement

In an attempt not to harm the global image of their respective brands, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have joined hands and released a statement in which they try to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

'Ahead of Sunday`s game, both clubs are actively encouraging all fans to focus on getting behind their team and enjoying what promises to be a great match.

'A North London derby is always a special occasion and we hope this game will be remembered for both the action on the pitch as well as the positive support for both teams off it. All fans should be aware that breaches of ground regulations - including anti-social behaviour - will not be tolerated."

Given some pretty fruity Adebayor songs have done the rounds over the years, from both sets of supporters, the press decided to pick up on some unsavoury songs from Arsenal fans in the fixture at White Hart Lane earlier in the season. Having been at the game, it's only right I register my distaste for the song and, wearily, confirm it was by no means a small minority that sung it.

Frankly, I've no interest in engaging in a childish pissing contest of 'but your fans sung this first.' Both sets of fans have gone beyond the pale with their chanting since the time chanting first appeared on the terraces. (I recall my first ever North London derby coinciding with one of Gary Lineker's children being diagnosed with leukaemia- leading to some rather despicable comments from the oaf sat behind me). Whilst this statement is a puff of PR smoke to allay the media's unrelenting thirst for controversy, I'd encourage all Gooners to cheer their team on and busy themselves letting Spurs know the precise coordinates of a couple of league wins. Let's keep it classy, eh? LD.

With respect to Adebayor, the bloke's one of the most tastless human beings in football, reprehensible as far as footballers go.

|No seriously lads, the NLD is probably the best Derby in English Football, many croak on about Liverpool United, but how many of those games have seen 1 team 4-2 up for it to finish 4-4 or 2 nil up to loose 3-2 or loose 5-1 ;) not many times, and it's weird how were considered the Fav's 10 years ago, bliemy thats a long time ago, we'd have been underdogs, but truly all form goes out the window and its a battle to rule all battles!!! Good Luck I think your gooner need it (see what I did there)!!!

Shewore.. tasteless human and reprehensble. Is that always has been or just since he left your lot. Feel youve had quite a few of your legends that actually fit the bill better, but they stayed with you.

Nope, couldn't stand him in the last couple of years at AFC either. Notice he's done his usual trick with you lot, working his boll0x off for half a season then fading once he believes his own press. He'll prob score a hat trick on Sunday now or something KMT.
