Arsenal v Spurs games always hard to predict.....however if they cant get themselves up for this game then i reckon they may well finish below United
Has Diggers been PM'ing anyone else on Soundcloud?.................filthy stuff altogether

22 shots on goal from Dortmund.......embarrassing
Lucky to get nil. Dortmund better in every department. Sobering performance
Getting taken apart here, should be 4-0 down
Is there no end to this madness................
Lets have another GIF
I take your point, and there does not seem be much interest in the "big clubs" in defensive reinforcements at present
However, Ivanovic is a seasoned international and has operated at the highest level for several years and has also filled in at CB on numerous occasions (i rate him very highly myself) and Zouma is also a CB by trade as far as i am aware
Alas Chambers is not (yet....) and i would be scared fucking shitless if we played anyone half decent with Flamini there
we let three centre backs go in the summer: Vermaelen. Miguel and Djourou
Vermaelen is an injury timebomb, Miguel has been around forever and done nothing and Djourou is just shit. This is another thing about Arsenal fans (sorry Rob, I'm not singling you out by the way). Always going on about Wenger clearing out the rubbish and when he does they moan about players leaving!!
Arsenal have six international defenders. Of those, Monreal gets the most stick but I don't think he's that bad. A bit lightweight in the tackle but he's quick, tenacious and can whip a decent ball in when he gets forward.
Personally I prefer my defenders to be a bit more Branislav Kompany myself, but that's just me.
I have no problem with them leaving, and i agree an your assessment on the three that have left, but not getting a bona fide CB (and don't tell me chambers is a CB...yet, looks like he will be a hell of a player, but a lot to learn) is bordering on negligence
Anyone with half a brain who watches/supports Arsenal will tell you the same
Except that Wenger usually plays 4-5-1 with Giroud on his own, therefore midfield options are paramount. How many players do you think Premier League clubs are allowed BF? 6 goalkeepers, 15 defenders, 24 midfielders and 10 strikers? I know that your precious club would buy that many if they thought they could get away with it. Anything to break back into the top four eh? (But there's no trophy for that, let's be clear)
So by that rationale, only playing one up front, do we need 7 listed forwards at the club
Not sure if you have watched us recently, its more of a 4-3-3
They will never get rid of him
He will jack it in at when his contract expires and move upstairs to become DOF and he will appoint Klopp as his replacement
When you factor in how fragile Gibbs and Monreal are you cannot expect to go through a whole season attempting to compete at the top table with only 6 first team defenders
My early pre season prediction of us finishing second if we get a DM and a CB now seems way off ....lol....as per
Flamini at the back against a bottom of the table team may see us limp through, but play him against, City/Chelseahelsea etc... do me a fucking favour
Perhaps Rob;s point is that he has six player to fill the four defending role yet 12 players to fill the 4 midfield roles.
Indeed we let three centre backs go in the summer (Vermaelen. Miguel and Djourou...yes i know one was a kid and one was on loan anyway but we still had Vermaelen) Two experienced internationals (again thier quality is questionable) and bring in a 19 year old kid, who only played 20 odd times for southampton....mainly at right back..... thats my point
From the Arsenal Website.............tad short in defence eh but we still have Abou Diaby and Francis Coquelin in the first team squad
