Flamini focused on derby only

Mathieu Flamini says the players are well aware of how difficult their upcoming schedule is, but that they’re only thinking about today’s North London derby clash against Sp*rs.

With just 10 games left to play in the Premier League this season, the midfielder has admitted it’s a sprint to the finish, but has urged his teammates to keep their concentration and keep taking it one game at a time.

“It’s important now to focus on Tottenham and not to look at the other games because it’s a sprint,” he told Arsenal Player. “We have a few more games to come which are not easy because Chelsea and Manchester City are also fighting for the title.

“But if we focus on Tottenham, play our football and win the challenges, it will be a great achievement for us and then we’ll have time to think about the other games.

“It’s an important game because we feel the pressure, we know it’s a derby, it’s important for the club, for the players and especially for the fans. It’s the kind of game you definitely want to win.

“It’s like a huge emotion when you have the opportunity to win, so we’ll do everything to win this game.”

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has told his team to look beyond the significance of this game from a local derby point of view and remember what it means in the context of their overall campaign.

“I must say as well that this derby is especially important for our Premier League position,” said the manager. “And that has an even bigger meaning for me.

“We have worked so hard that now we want to transform that into a super successful season. We are in a strong position so, beyond even the derby, is the importance of this game in the Premier League for us.”

Turkis Gooner

3 points is a MUST. Cant wait to see that CUNT AdebaWHORE’s face when we put 3 past them today…COME ON YOU GUNNNERSSSSSSSS

Per

Our Flamster has got to start today! COYG!

ghanagunner

well its not as easy as it sounds. The fact that they have disgraced themselves against chelsea and humiliated again by Benfica means they will be up for it even more. but lets hope it works in our favor and piles pressure upon them that they wont be able to cope. Funny I head Ade last week spewing sht that we can’t handle pressure.

Possession

With Chelsea dropping points and handing us a lifeline it’s VITAL that we take advantage and maintain our title challenge.

COME ON YOU GUNNERS
WE CAN DO THIS !!

Mooro

They’ll try and come at us from the off, but they’ll over commit cos they’re stoopid cunts.

Get the ball to The Ox on the break and it’s on, as their defence is shot to bits.

If we get an early one, we could get a few.

goonero

We’ve been in this position before, needing to take maximum points to achieve our goal for the season knowing full well others around us are likely to drop points. This time we are doing it for a title instead of 4th place. The last thing we are going to do is let that lot take that away from us. Come on you gunners let’s cunt some bastards!!!

Win this & we would be in the mix for the title else the deathrun can have a more literal meaning

Oor Wullie

It’s just a simple case of getting 30 points from our remaining games and the league is our’s, all our’s! It’s in our hands.

tomchou

One game at a time. 3 points would make everyone happy. Want the team to fight till the end.

Tough game. When we’ve had an opportunity to gain ground or break away this season we haven’t taken it. Todays a good day to start. Both teams have their injury problems. So I expect Arsenal to win 1-0 nil. Tight game……..but im hoping for a 3nil whooping to gain us some confidence for the next few games. Coyg

Arseblood

This is bloody massive. A win would give us the lift we need to pull this off! COYG!

heroldgoon

Chamberlain beside Arteta/Flamini please. Need that midfield running rings around scum.

Malaysian gunner

This is a must win game. Lose and Wenger will be under more pressure. He has to look at his tactics.Its pass after pass after pass. No wonder the gunners find it hard to score because the build up is full of passing giving the other team time to form a wall. Watch how how other teams score.As I have said,they don’t indulge in a passing frenzy. I don’t know.Arsenal have beaten only Spurs and Pool in the top 7. They have lost to Pool,MC,Mu and even lowly Stoke. Don’t think winning the Fa cup will be easy.Wigan have beaten… Read more »

you think keeping possession is a bad thing? We have our fair share of counter attacks which are devastatingly good. But if there is no way through, you keep the ball until something opens up. you don’t think other top teams “indulge in a passing frenzy”? look at teams like Bayern or Barcelona. Ok, we are lacking a little in firepower, but that doesn’t mean we should pass any less.

the fact that you call arsenal “they” instead of “we” says it all

Tottenham is a talented team, but they’ve been mismanaged and are very lucky to be sitting fifth, considering they have a goal differential of zero. Only an outstanding individual effort from someone like Townsend or Eriksen could pull them through, because they’ve lost confidence in the coach and each other. We’ll stay focused, stick together, and follow the game plan. Injuries are hobbling us, but we really ought to throttle the offense of a team that we’ve already kept two clean sheets against this season, and there should be enough gas in Ox’s tank to make several chances. I’ll say… Read more »

Absolutely buzzing right now to see the game! Slept only 3 hours last night, driving over an hour away to watch the match live at a pub with our friends OC gooners! 3 points in the bag. Arsenal will smash some lily white scum! COYG!!!

Goonerestgooner

After A*e’s comments, I hope he’s on the receiving end of some crunching tackles from Rosicky, Cazorla and Arteta.

Preferably all at the same time.
With Flamini flying in a second later to finish the job.
