Vermaelen and Szczesny looking for derby day boost

Despite having been out of the team since Arsenal’s 6-1 over Southampton in mid-September, Wojciech Szczesny is looking for a return to the side and three points against the old enemy.

The Polish stopper, who enjoys this game, knows that form isn’t a factor when the two teams meet but knows how important a win would be today.

“It’s a massive game, and it doesn’t really matter what form you are in when it comes around,” he said.

“Both teams have had some disappointing results recently, but it’s all about commitment in this one and I’m confident we can go out there and get the job done.

“Hopefully it can have the same effect for us that it did in February, when it really kick-started our season. It comes a little bit earlier this year, so after a frustrating couple of weeks we hope a similar thing can happen – and over a longer period.”

He’s backed up by captain Thomas Vermaelen who wants to use this game as a way to boost the team’s fortunes and confidence.

“This isn’t a normal game – it’s a special one,” he said. “Practically, we need to get three points on the board, but I think it would give both the fans and the team a massive boost if we won.

“Last season we came back from 2-0 down, working really hard for a memorable turnaround. We want to create the same impetus this time and it’s a big opportunity to do so.

“If you look at the league table, we’re not too far behind third and fourth places. Nothing is lost yet – a win against Spurs would be a big step.”

We know that players often talk the talk without walking the walk, but in the lead up to this game it’s inevitable. Once the players go out there and remember that a cannon is far more powerful than a chicken on a basketball, and play accordingly, this is a game we should win.

Come on Arsenal.

off the topics lads but this january…Fellaini is definitely the player we should have in our team..before manutd, chelsea & mancity get his signature we should sign him…trade him with ramsey,verm, squillaci, diaby, rosicky and santos plus cash…he single handedly bullied manutd and won…what more do you need in a player!!

Sagna's Braids

Oh yes, just go ahead and click ‘Approach to sign’

But why did you say “trade him with ramsey,verm, squillaci, diaby, rosicky and santos plus cash”?. Do you really think that could happen?

And I want your honest opinion lads…

Thumbs up if you believe Arsenal will win:)

Thumbs down if you think Sp*rs will win:(

…I personally think that Arsenal have this in the bag and will definitely come out victorious (especially because its at the emirates too) B-)

What do you think…?


3-1 to Arsenal. Giroud with at least 1 goal.


Every time I read about how we intend to “make a statement” or look for a “boost” , we fuck up.
