Former NLD Star Curiously Predicts A Narrow Victory For The Away Side
By Harry Hotspur -

Gilberto Silva, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Arsenal, believes that his former side are underdogs for this weekend’s North London Derby.

Silva is 44 now, but still has strong memories of his 170 games for the other mob, and he did indeed score a pair of penalties against us in one game. Despite being a former Gooner, it’s really rather optimistic of Gilberto to genuinely believes Arsenal can win this one.

Arsenal are LANGUISHING in 14th spot and have won just one game in their last five Premier League outings. This will be the lowest in the table Arsenal have been going into a north London derby since August 1993, when they sat in the 21st spot. This is nothing to be overlooked.

Spurs are currently 20/21 and the Arsenal are way, way out at 11/4. Gilberto is just trying to keep onside with his fans. Pitiful.

There are a number of pundits talking up Arsenal in this NLD. No doubt this is a big match as we have in the past seen Arsenal use this match to turn around their season and vice versa. Jose is no stranger to these situations however and he will have the squad prepared. Our problem is at CB at the moment. I think we may well go for the Milan guy in January and either dispatch Sanchez or Ali. Not sure we can afford a couple of mistakes from Rodon in this one. If Pooch takes over at PSG then I could see Ali going there. We need a good result this weekend to consolidate the results against City and Chelsea who are title contenders and Arsenal are not.

In hindsight, that’s probably the safest prediction for him to make. He couldn’t say they were going to stuff us, as he would look silly, and if by some chance they were to beat us it would be narrow, so he is keeping his goon associates on board !!

Yes whilst anticipating a Spurs victory it’s no formality when given that local bragging rights are at stake fuelling extra motivation and tension IMO current form simply goes out the window in North London derbies when expecting nothing different faltering Arsenal will be up for it especially as under fire Arteta’s job is probably on the line!

If current form goes out the window, maybe we will be back to hitting 5s and 6s – rather than clinching classy results in tight games.
