The most exciting political event I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around is taking place TODAY. One thing is for sure, if there were a group of people you could guarantee would turn out for a vote, it’d be the Arsenal fans. You wouldn’t have to tell them twice, they’d be there with their ‘Mesut For Prez’ banners no doubt.
5 talking points post Spurs, in your face, right now…
1. The Santi effect:
From @Orbinho on Twitter:
You can look at this games in terms of the title and our typical November, and be pleased with a point but not joyous, or you can look at the state of Spurs today, add in the context of a midweek CL game for them against a hard team and be pretty disappointed we didn’t put them away.
I’ll take the point, November is a black month and the stat we’ve been bemoaning all month is our average points total come the end (see table above). We need to take 8 to have a 20% improvement on our usual and I’d say a draw against United with wins at Bournemouth and Southampton would be a very good haul for the month. Anything more would be excellent.
