 Arsenal's Secret Dossier On Spurs ... The North London Derby.
.
Revelations fall from cyberspace almost like rain. So no surprise when the following turned up on our pub computer. All attempts at verification by our highly skilled team of technocrats have as yet proved fruitless. Translators have been enlisted as well given the seeming Gallic authorship. So what to do.
.
Our club motto ... " Audere est facere."... loosely translated at our pub as .. " Publish and be damned." ... Duke of Wellington shortly after England beat France in an International at the Waterloo Stadium circa 1815. And so to ..
.
Des Jottings A La Spurs ... La Derby Nord Londres.
.
Interplay between manager and head coach is expected and ahead of such a traditional encounter why not an email exchange between the two.
 
Bonjour Steve,
.
                    whilst ze team is not so bon or even bien at the back ( I am sure you are working on your leaking goals problem) I thought perhaps in mes comments on the spurs we should how you say .. regardez ... look out for.
.
                   Bale
.
                           I still blame Peter Hill-Wood for not picking him up when we also signed his Southampton ami , Theo, what a pretty name. Yes I know I am never wrong but surely Peter was to blame there. The Spurs certainly won that one game, set, and match completement.
.
                          Carl Jenkinson against Bale. We mustn't tell anyone but the water bottle could get a hammering. I trust you get my drift Steven. Stop Bale.
.
                 Manny
.
                         Ah Manny, how we used to love our Manny. Then he goes off to Manchester but zalors ... he is back in Londres.
                         It will just be quelle malchance that he scores against us as he did with City. Yes another danger rather than Le Petit they have been previously playing. Sil vous plait Steven I am just here to point these things out. You are the coach defense. Please sort it .
.
               La Lennon,
.
                         another one supposedly injured and now back. Yes even more petit than his bon ami Jermain but like our Theo tres rapide. As well seems to be trying a lot harder this year. Surely Andre, Santos not the other one , will concentrate on the football rather than shirt swapping. Steven again I am not sure you have this one solved. As ever I will of course remind the press of your credentials as our Coach defense. Hmm.
.
             Good News
.
                       from here on in it looks much more tres bien et facile.
.
             Dempsey
.
                      an American legend but runs around like the American turkey ... one for us.
.
             Thuddleston
 .
                      the turning circle is not la problem, mais non, c'est la speed of thought from brain to foot. ... another one for us.
             Sandro
.
                    Oops  ..how you say sous la radar. If the Brazilian is fit he can stuffe the game up for us entirely. Petit Carzola needs room but will not settle if Sandro is about. I will ask about to see if anyone has some ideas to help.
.
            For our eyes only.
.
                   Merci beaucoup Mousse is not playing. Pourtant where will our goals come from. Giroud, the german and the other useless winger, no not Theo, are very worrying. Perhaps if that lovely but akwardly useless nice Mr.Dawson plays we have a chance. Still Billy will be back with a grudge. Between him and Manny surely an away goal to them.
.
                As you know, thank heavens for little goals, my favourite Maurice Chevalier music, our new striker Theo can perchance do the magic. He did last time.
.
           Come home Robin. All Is Forgiven
.
               Excuse Steven ... perhaps too much of the Beaujolais.
.
    Bonne Nuit, Adiex mais non Au Revoir
 .
                                                            Arsene.
 .
Meanwhile At A Kent Pub.
.
  Make of the preview above as you will, nonetheless another North London Derby looms. If only Dembele could escape that Belgian Physio cell , 6 weeks now, then we would confidently predict a win here.
.
 Ifs are buts and buts are excuses. Surely no need. We think Arsene and Steve ( its only Steven when its his fault) are on the mark. If our speed merchants fire, if Emmanuel plays as he did versus City, and Sandro leads the defence then apart from fine English ale on saturday night it will be awash with Fench bubbly stuff here at our pub.
 .
Not sure we need or want him these days but Paul Scholes turns 38 today. Yep a young Sandro will do us.
 .
Cheers  ... nice to see Frankel and Black Caviar win Cartiers ... a Spurs derby win would top it off ... Greg Meyer.        coys.

I think I've posted this one before but it 's worth re-watching. All Spurs goals from last season.  5 minutes of sheer quality. Could do with some of this tomorrow. If Bale's head is right, must be the sleepless nights, then we could be good to go. Greg is more confident than me. I'm sticking with 2-2. I have a sneaky feeling that Lloris will play. He might just make the difference.
