[Video at bottom]
A week on since the latest installment of the battle of North London and now 4 league games without defeat against our rivals after so many years of being second best and in truth not even coming close to getting one over on Arsenal, times are now changing.
No dvd released by the club this time, perhaps because we seem to be taking control of the most recent derby’s now and we can’t really bring out a dvd every time now can we. For me the power is shifting in North London and before the Arsenal fans get irate, I am not talking about past glories, the size of stadium or club and I am not talking about the fact you are in the Champions League and we are not because I am quietly confident you won’t be either next season, in fact I’d put my house on it. I am talking about the fact that I personally think we have overtaken Arsenal in regards to the squad quality and the eleven that take to the pitch every week.
There is no doubt Arsenal held bragging rights for well over a decade and maybe will again in the future but for now them days are behind us, we can take to a North London derby now and expect to win, we have the squad quality to be able to compete. I don’t think we will be able to dominate the way that Arsenal did over us for many years but at the time they were playing the best football I have ever seen grace the Premiership but none the less it’s nice to now be able to pick them off and cause them the pain that we have endured for almost the last 15 years.
There will always be the minority of Spurs fans that are never satisfied with the job that Harry has done and will continue to do, but when have you ever seen such a quality Spurs side in the Premiership? We have our best squad ever since the formation of the Premier League, we have been in the Champions League and will compete for a place once again and we now beat Arsenal on a regular basis. We were once a joke but now we are one of the best teams in England who other teams take very seriously indeed. So get behind the team and cast your mind back through the Premiership years, we have never had it so good, so take note and be carefull what you wish for. You can’t build success over night and untill we have the stadium and more spending power then 4th place is realistically the best we can hope for barring a miracle.
I took the liberty of piecing together a video of our last 4 league games against Arsenal to give you all a reminder of how things have changed. Mr VDV will stand out in this video for those of you who think we should sell him, just watch the video and tell me you still feel the same. It’s been about 6 months since I last made a video but we haven’t really had much to rave about since our CL run.
