Spurs Preview: Football matters only, because only football matters

264 comments April 21st, 2007

I can’t remember a week when there has been less hype has surrounded a clash between Arsenal and Tottenham. The reasons are two-fold: the departure of David Dein has detracted attention, whilst both sides’ seasons are petering out into meaninglessness. However, this is the North London Derby we’re talking about – a fixture that’s already provided three of the highlights of our somewhat drab season. How nice would it be to steer through the fourth without giving Spurs the “revenge” they so desperately crave?

If you want news about Kroenke and Dein, shares, and Arsene’s future then use the links to the right-hand side of the homepage and go to another website. All of those things are secondary to what happens on the field, and today, that’s what will take precedence here on Gunnerblog.

Team news: Freddie Ljungberg and Cesc Fabregas are both named in the squad, though there is some doubt over their involvement, particularly the little Spaniard. If he misses out I’d expect Diaby to play in midfield with Freddie upfront with Adebayor. If Ljungberg doesn’t quick make it, it’s possible that Baptista will be given an opportunity to relive his Carling Cup heroics.

The motivation: Yes, there isn’t much life left in our season, but it’s all a matter of perspective. We should play this game and the game against Chelsea as if they’re our cup finals – an opportunity to put a smile on the faces of our fans and lay down a marker for next year.

The incentive: More great moments like this:

Exciting, isn’t it? Come on Arsenal.
