Who Will Be The Least Worst Team In North London?

Who Will Be The Least Worst Team In North London?

In what turned out to be a stroke of luck for me yesterday I watched the Arsenal game whilst out on a friend`s Stag night/day/afternoon, so by the time the final whistle went I was already well lubricated, softening the blow of what we`d just witnessed.

However after wakening this morning with a stinking Guinness induced hangover, realising I had infact be forced to sleep on the couch after Mrs took the hump after I fell asleep on the train home from Leeds and as a result missed my stop by a good 40 miles, the pain was further enhanced as the memory of watching the boys fight back to lead the game 3-2 late on only to once again balls it up.

Needless to say the site had been flooded with Spurs fans mocking us after we`d mocked them for mocking us for being crap earlier in the season. After reading the comments I realised that neither set of fans were posturing about whose team was the best, no, we now seem to be arguing to see who is the least worst side in North London.

Of course Tottenham didn`t let us down and drew with a Villa side who have been horrific under McLeash, so now it goes down to the last game of the season to see who`s the least sh*t.

St Totterinham`s day is always a celebration of our continued dominance over Spurs, and should we beat West Brom next week it`ll mark yet another one, however if we do finish 3rd it`s not going to be something that I`ll brag about. Both teams have been laughably unpredictable, both cracking under the slightest amount of pressure.

Just a few weeks ago Wenger`s men went on an impressive run of games that saw us leap-frog Spurs, and had we continued in that form this potential St Totteringham`s day would have been one of the sweetest in living memory as the Gunners appeared to have turned a corner and built a stable foundation on which to build.

It now seems as though that turned corner was a mere shortcut, one that eventually merged back on to our rocky path of immaturity, inconsistency and dodgy defending.

Let`s hope that whatever happens next week, Mr Wenger takes some time in the summer to ensure we don`t continue along this same path, because in any other season we`d have been well and truly put to the sword.

Make no mistake, the only reason we`re still in with a shout of 3rd place is because the team we`re racing against are just as many problems as we are.

What a relief! But we are not out of the woods yet and we need to beat West Brom to secure 3rd. We have not won in 4 games so we should really buck up and win next week. The last 4 fixtures have been thoroughly disappointing; after another great run of form of 7 wins in a row, we lost to QPR and our form has become erratic, just like when we lost to City and lost form earlier on this season. We need to arrest this slump at the Hawthorns.

Same one as does the cooking at ours by the looks of it.

Feck. How tight can this season get? Top and bottom of the prem...its going right to the wire. Have so many bums ever been this squeaky?

Its been a tough season which has proved that while we have a large squad numbers wise, we are short of players in the squad who can come in and slot seamlessly into the first team. The injuries to Wilshere and Diaby could not be legislated for but the lack of numbers in midfield has been chronic this season. Coquelin played well when he came on against Norwich and he seems a more assured presence in midfield in a crunch game like the next one. This season has been the most jarring roller coaster ride in living memory and one cant wait for it to be over on a high note.

As a spurs fan I can definitely empathise with this although from Rednkapps interview today you had nothing to worry about anyway, we were only ever trying to better Newcastles result...for all the stick he gets your so lucky to have Wenger

A win is crucial. A draw could see us finish 4th (if the Spuds win their last game). The last 4 seasons or so, we have finished the season very poorly, which has only been delayed by a few games this season despite having 4th spot still to play for.

Fulham have the 15th worst away form in the league. WBA has the 15th worst home form this season.

Something else to think about. We've had the worse injury record in the prem over the last 3 seasons. It's probably been the worst under a single manager in the club's history.
