Fucking hate Spurs!

Bleeding gums murphy

They are shit apart from front 3. This is there for the taking. Need to be very careful not to get wound up and get red card. I predict 3-1. COYG


Please tell me next lottery numbers. Fantastic prediction


Very happy with that, nice bench too


Looks like the best 11 for both teams. This will really tell us where we are right now by the end of the game.


Nah they are missing kulu, a big part of why they’re 3rd

Boy Bastin

It will be our second major test of the season. We didn’t do so well in the first for a number of reasons, so a win today is paramount. We have to get our share of points across the season against the other “big” clubs if we’re to succeed so let’s start with Sp*rs.

Jesus of Sao Paulo

Sp*rs are not part of “big” clubs. Stop flattering them.

Boy Bastin

Unfortunately, they are on a few measures – larger income/turnover than us for one; CL football for another. That’s certainly not saying they’re a better club, of course not, but they are likely to be challenging for a top four finish as we’ll be – whether we like it (or acknowledge it) or not.


Powerful! Our best XI. Let’s start fast, 3-0 in 20 minutes! COYG


That’s our strongest team. No excuses now. Let’s destroy them!

Teryima Adi

Let’s beat them, boys. COYG!!!


Our strongest team, strongest bench! We are winning this if we keep a cool head and get a fair deal from the ref and VAR. COYG!!!


Barring ESR, this looks as good as we get. Time to consign and ageing Spuds team to where they belong.

Boy Bastin

In the ordure…


V glad TP is playing, our chances are much better with him. COYR!


I wonder who thumbs this comment down….our chances are really better with him in d all we need is 4 Jesus to score n we certainly win…lol


Player for player we outmatch them bar their front 3, which are a little more advanced.

This will be a good game, lets hope we come out on top. COYG!


Time to make a statement. Excited and nervous. COYG


Fancy a big game from Jesus today. COYG

Boy Bastin

I hope so. He didn’t have a shot on target against Utd but made up for that, to some degree, against Brentford. Surely, this is the ideal game to show The Emirates what he can really do against better opposition.

Boy Bastin

Glad we’ve got the returnees in the line-up. We really need the three points with City lurking close by so fingers crossed.


Dear Mr Arteta:

Only 3 things matter to real Arsenal fans:

1: Beat Spurs
2: Beat Spurs
3: Beat Spurs



Don’t go hanging legs out in penalty area please. Wobbly-legged Spuds and VAR could see us hurt.

Brady’s bunch

If partey plays the full match we win COYG

el nino

lets do these cunts

Mark Hazelwood

Think we’ll score at least 3.

Not saying well win though.

All Arse

Saka will tear them a new one shortly. Can’t wait.

Cliff Bastin

No excuses.

Nainsley Aitland Miles

Hope Jesus keeps his head and doesn’t pick up a silly yellow or he’ll miss Liverpool next weekend.

Conte does his homework and likely passed on this info to his players so they’ll likely target Jesus, wind him up, or invite a late tackle.


Our strongest line-up.
I expect Tottenham to try and exploit Zinchenko’s side.

Let’s go guys!


Dominate for 30 minutes.
Take the lead.
Do something really fucking stupid to shoot yourself in the foot.
And they are right back in it after doing nothing all game.

This is a weakness in this team..


More annoyed at being vulnerable to counter attack football when leading than the poorly timed tackle.

Need to improve in the second half.
