Passionate, emotional, absorbing, full of goals and drama. Once again, fans of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur await one of the two showpiece games of their team’s season – the North London Derby – seen by some as the best rivalry in Britain. Gripping and exhausting for viewers whilst sometimes torturous for the players, the derby is a benchmark for bragging rights in North London. It is a time when heroes are discovered and villains are dispelled. It is the first game fans look out for when a season’s fixtures are announced.
There are few rivalries which match the intensity of the two North London clubs, or more accurately Tottenham Hotspur of North London and the club formerly known as Woolwich Arsenal from South East London. There are volumes written on the subject however here, on the 100th Anniversary of the rivalry I just want to briefly take you back to where it all began.
If Scott Parker featured in 300, it would have been called 1!
"I'm gonna knock him down and wrestle him to the ground. I don't care,I'm getting the ball back!" This is what Scotty would probably tell himself while getting the possession back and getting the ball moving again for the Lilywhites. Not once,not twice. A hundred times over and over again.
I would like to express my views as we see our workhorse join Fulham after serving two sensational years at Tottenham.
