- Sat, 25 Sep 2021 19:00:04 +0000: Struggling neighbours offer Spurs a grim warning of their own mediocre future | Jonathan Wilson - Arsenal | The Guardian
Tottenham play mid-table football in a shiny new stadium and fail to bridge the gulf to the rich elite – just like their derby rivals
The phantom slowly, gravely, silently approached Spurs. It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which concealed its head, its face, its form, and left nothing visible save one outstretched hand. It pointed to the south-west and in that moment Spurs understood. Spurs looked at Arsenal and saw not a rival but their own future. Could it be that Arsenal are a vision of Tottenham yet to come?
This is a tale of Daniel Levy, of course, and of Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane and dozens of others, but it is also about the broader sweep of history. Football, as we know it today, may have been born in London with the formulation of the Football Association at the Freemasons Arms near Covent Garden in 1863 and the codification of the laws that still form the basis of the modern game, but after professionalisation it quickly left.Continue reading...

Goals flow for the Spurs striker in north London derbies, so Sunday’s setting is just right for him to recover his verve
The in-house Tottenham TV interviewer offered a run-through of the top lines and Harry Kane could not suppress a smile. A 2-0 home win over Arsenal. A great atmosphere inside the stadium. A goal for Kane, which made him the all-time leading scorer in the north London derby. And Spurs on top of the Premier League table. “It literally doesn’t get better than that, does it?” came the prompt. “It’s a pretty good night,” Kane replied, before saying the same thing again, as if to try to process it all.
It was only last December but it feels lifted from a different era. Plenty has changed since that high point, which was fired by the presence of 2,000 fans after nine months of empty stands – and particularly for Kane. Spurs would slump to a seventh-placed finish, dismissing José Mourinho along the way, and Kane made it clear that he wanted a move to Manchester City.Continue reading...

Do not reach for the reading glasses: Arsenal’s treatment room is, at the time of writing, empty before Sunday’s north London derby. Mikel Arteta hopes for a victory that would provide further evidence times are changing at the Emirates, but his opposite number needs to win a few people over too. Nuno Espírito Santo’s bright start in charge of Tottenham has wobbled, but their first win at their rivals’ home in the league since November 2010 would add significantly to his stash of credit.

- Fri, 24 Sep 2021 21:30:24 +0000: Martin Ødegaard may be the big-game player Mikel Arteta needs at Arsenal | Nick Ames - Arsenal | The Guardian
Arteta believes the Norwegian playmaker can turn big games, and Sunday’s north London derby is certainly one of those
Arsenal may be embracing the new but they have, at least, signed someone with form in bending a north London derby to his will. In March they were undeservedly losing to Érik Lamela’s mindboggling rabona at the Emirates Stadium when, as half-time neared and predictable neuroses hovered, Martin Ødegaard swept in a left-footed equaliser from 14 yards.
It was not the cleanest of finishes but nobody cared: Arsenal had been let down that morning when the captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, reported late, but their 22-year-old loanee had pointed the way instead.Continue reading...

A finely poised North London derby, a meeting of midfield maestros and Mike Dean refereeing Cristiano Ronaldo
Thomas Tuchel has masterminded three wins out of three against Pep Guardiola since his arrival in England. Another at Stamford Bridge on Saturday will give Chelsea a six-point cushion over the reigning champions after as many Premier League games. Guardiola was roundly criticised following City’s Champions League final defeat for not picking a holding midfielder, despite having lost the FA Cup semi-final between the two sides with both Rodri and Fernandinho in his starting lineup, then a subsequent Premier League match with just the Spaniard shielding his defence. In a fixture where it seems Guardiola can’t seem to do right for doing wrong in terms of team selection, we can only ponder if and how he might “overthink” his tactics for this crunch game. BG

The summer transfer action is beginning to come hard and fast for Arsenal as they now have begun to receive many offers for the want away Dutch striker Robin Van Persie who is out of contract with the gunner at the end of next season. The clubs star player has made it clear he will not be signing a new contract with the gunners and this has prompted all of Europe’s top clubs to begin a bidding war for the phenomenal striker.
Another player who could be set to leave the Emirates stadium is Carlos Vela who is now in the middle of discussions for a transfer to the Spanish side Real Sociedad who are thought to be lining up a £5.000.000 deal for the Mexican international. Vela has been on the sidelines for some time now and it is clear that his future lies elsewhere and away from London.
The capture of Lucas Podolski from Cologne a few weeks back was meant to signal the start of a new era at Arsenal as the club have been trophy less for the past five years. The German international was seen as the perfect partner for Robin Van Persie but with the Dutch striker certainly on his way out of the Emirates it is now more than likely that Podolski will be leading the line along with another new signing up from in the form of up and coming superstar Olivier Giroud.

The Morroccan international is wanted by Fiorentina and Dutch champions Ajax and the striker is keen on a move to either of these sides in search of first team football.
Arsenal are also said to be in for the highly thought of Egyptian defender Islam Ramadan who plays for his homeland club Haras El Hodood with the twenty one year old thought to be an integral part of Wengers new defensive plans. Ramadan has also attracted a huge amount of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.
