Last seasons derby match at the
Emirates proved to be pivotal. Had we won the match, we'd have probably
continued on with our march to consolidating 3rd spot and travelling
the London Underground would not be littered with constant reminders of
our implosion. Instead the day served to illustrate that not all was
well and that tactically we lacked any shrewdness and astuteness and
invited Arsenal to rejuvenate a season that some of their fans had
already given up on, leaving long before half time.
The game was a catalyst. It sent them one way and us in the opposite direction.
