So wrong and yet so Wright
It has finally come to pass – after 22 years, “St. Totteringham’s Day” will not be observed in the Premier League as Tottenham have made sure that they will not be finishing behind their bitter rivals Arsenal.
They did so with a 2-0 win over them in what would be the last North London Derby ever at White Hart Lane as Harry Kane and Delle Alli got on the scoresheet – the latter of whom was not even born when the curse had begun. A generation of Spurs fans celebrated raucously while Gunners’ supporters faced their worst fear – a changing of the guard.
It would certainly seem given the contrast in fortunes for both clubs that Spurs have finally come out of the shadow of their more successful neighbours – and even Arsenal legend Ian Wright agrees. The ex-striker admitted that signing for Tottenham would prove the more attractive option currently, a statement that gave rise to plenty of taunts and banter on social media.
While it still remains to be seen if Spurs can maintain their new-found edge, there’s no denying that it is their time to go marching in to the spotlight.
