As bleak as things were at times for Arsenal fans over the years, at the very least they could pride themselves as being the kings of North London.
However, it seems the traditional St. Totteringhams Day won’t be arriving this season as Arsenal face the prospect of a season without Champions League football while Spurs are currently in with an outside chance of winning the Premier League. At the moment, Spurs are definitely no longer in the shadow of their illustrious rival.
Perhaps this is what prompted this reaction from Thierry Henry on Sky Sports show “The Boots are Off”. Asked by Graeme Souness whether top players of today would choose to go to Spurs or Arsenal, all the Gunners legend could do was cover his eyes and say “aaargh”, making the answer fairly clear.
