Arsenal’s dreamiest ever player, Robert Pires, holds the record for the most goals scored by an Arsenal player against Spurs with eight.
He shares that record with FA Cup winning bubbly-headed hero Alan Sunderland and some bloke who could have had the potential to be a real Arsenal legend but instead will line up with a cock on his chest on Sunday because he was an egomaniacal twat. Remember folks, sometimes the choices you make take you down a dark path.
Anyway, Pires reckons scoring against that lot is a bit special and says the game against them is huge for the fans and the players.
“I have big memories of the north London derby. Against Spurs, it is always a special game. It has particular meaning for the fans, and as players you always understand that.
“If you have the chance to score against them, it feels great, because it means so much to the Arsenal fans. Confidence is vital. This is a complicated game and for the team to have won in the build-up is important.”
I suspect he went on to say that Spurs were a pack of mouth-breathers who eat their own young and dance every night to the music of Phil Collins whilst fingering their own anuses. Typical media though, they won’t report that, will they?
Arsenal need someone new to come along and break Spurs hearts in every game, the way Bobby did. Even if they thought they might win, up he popped and they hated him for it. Which meant we loved him.
