Do Arsenal Continue Beating Spurs?

November 19, 2010 — by Tyler2

Notes from our Arsenal-supporting contingent, lead by the generally unruly but always introspective Tyler Carpenter.

The derby? Impossible to predict a scoreline. Position-wise the teams are mostly even, but Arsenal should win at home. The battle will be won at midfield, and I feel that finally-approaching-form Cesc could be the decider. But the mouth-watering matchup is Gunners’ right vs. Spurs’ left. Will Sagna be able to make deep runs and still track back to defend Bale? Arsenal’s right back has the speed, but can anyone defend Bale Kong?

And who should defend Rafael Van der Goal? The ’85 Chicago Bears? (Yes children, this link brings you to the Superbowl Shuffle)

Arsenal wins Draws Spurs wins Arsenal goals Spurs goals
League 61 42 46 234 202
FA Cup 3 0 2 7 5
League Cup 7 3 3 19 16
Charity Shield 0 1 0 0 0
Total 71 46 51 260 223

I remember this fixture last year: van Persie intercepting the Spurs’ kickoff after an Arsenal goal. Robin gave a quick pass to Cesc, who took it singlehandly, 50+ yards, and put it in the still-warm net. Nice!

    Sean helped with the Bears link…

    “Well they call me Sweetness, and I like to dance. Runnin’ the ball is like makin’ romance.”

    Remember the days when players stayed with their team for their entire career? I do, but just bear-ly.

    RIP, Sweetness
