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.
