Szczesny: We hate Tottenham and we hate Tottenham

35

Wojciech Szczesny says that whatever happens this season he’s determined to help the team finish above local rivals Sp*rs.

While fans often express their dislike for other teams, creatively and otherwise, it’s unusual for a player to do so quite so openly. However, the Polish stopper is coming at it from a playing and supporting point of view.

“Getting above Tottenham is the main target,” he told the London Evening Standard. “We don’t want to finish below them no matter what. That’s just my personal ambition because I am one of the fans and so it means a lot to me to finish above them. I am confident we will do so.

“They will slip up eventually. They have been in good form – you have to give it to them – but I am confident we are a better side and will finish above them. Time will tell if they can handle the pressure but they look good at the moment. Hopefully they will drop points in the second half of the season.”

Arsenal’s number 1 also believes that despite the loss against Man City yesterday, Roberto Mancini’s side will also drop points as the season progresses.

“They will drop points. They lost against Chelsea, who are a good side, and they seemed to have got their confidence back. We are confident, playing well while they are on top of the league but United are catching up. Everyone can win it still.

“I don’t think there is a big gap between the teams in terms of quality. They just got the winning goal and that was the difference. But we showed that we are just as good as the richest team and possibly, at the moment, the best team in the league so that gives us confidence we can beat everyone else.”

The Gunners will be looking to get back on track on Wednesday night against Aston Villa whilst hoping that Sp*rs and Chelsea can take points off each other just before a meteorite lands on the White Hart Lane pitch just after the final whistle on Thursday.

ps – comments closed because Sp*rs fans who have come here appear to be total bellends.

Wow. The mighty Arsena use to be happy playing for titles. Now they just want to finish above Spurs. So is Spurs have a loss of form and end up 9th, Arsenal will be happy to finish 8th?

Is this site run by the North Korean government?

It seems as though posts are deleted if they aren’t in total agreement with the author and question someone else’s post.

Ah well…I suppose that’s communism for you

Spurs are happy to get kicked out of the Europa League ? THE EUROPA LEAGUE !! Spurs are happy to be ahead of Arsenal at Christmas ? I bet they are. Because that is the best they can hope for. Spurs can hope for Europa League next season…..If they are lucky..

Somehow that doesn’t quite stack up against the truth does it Gunner?

Best we can hope for? Your keeper is the one saying his main target is to finish above spurs. You are the ones currently outside the top four.

Spurs may well slip up, but so will Arsenal. Be interesting to see if they can achieve their ‘goal’ of such high aspirations. If Van Persie picks up his once a season injury then i doubt it.

I for one am just happy to see that the best goalkeeper in the league is a true gunner and like all fans wants to finish above spurs and I’m sure it’s obvious he wants to finish in the champions league spaces

@Alan: Our keeper need not keep targets to finish above you. In fact, nobody has to target that. It just happens automatically. See you at St.Totteringham’s day 🙂

Come On You Gooners !
