North London Derby?
Wow, did it ever live up to expectations. Arsenal made Tottenham look disorganized in just about every department in the first half. But the second half was a different game.
Bale, the man touted as the world’s greatest footballer ever for weeks now came alive after the break, scoring one that signaled the tide could be turned and set up another.
Gallas’ every move on the ball was marked with boos from the home fans. After a while they must have begun to get bored with it as he saw so much of the ball and undoubtedly his best game yet in a Spurs shirt.
Arsenal lack a true captain. Lots of technically superb players but no leader. Fabregas epitomizes the problem.
He is without doubt a sensational footballer, but a leader of men he is not.
Your man of the match then, gentlepersons, please!
