Arsenal Troll Tottenham With Epic Tweet On World Poetry Day

Share this on

On Thursday, World Poetry Day, Arsenal took aim at rivals Tottenham on Twitter with a merciless troll. The Gunners have won many North London Derbies over the years, and they couldn’t resist the opportunity to stick the knife in to their neighbours in a unique fashion. Fans were left in stitches, even asking for the club’s head of social media to get a raise.

While this year’s meeting at Wembley didn’t quite go to plan for Arsenal, with a missed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty in the last minute and a red card for defender Laurent Koscielny spoiling the day at Wembley after Aaron Ramsey netted in the first half. But earlier in the season at the Emirates Stadium, they won a dramatic and fiery clash 4-2. That brought back memories of another game, which the Gunners won 5-2 in February 2012. 

Amazingly, Spurs took a 2-0 lead in that game through Louis Saha and a penalty from former Gunners striker Emmanuel Adebayor could have made the story so very different. But a quick turnaround before half time, thanks to goals from Bacary Sagna and Robin van Persie, were built on by a second half strike by Tomas Rosicky and a brace from Theo Walcott. It was cruel on Spurs, but asserted Arsène Wenger’s side’s dominance at the time.

The same result was repeated the following November, but that game will always be remembered most. Fans were over the moon to see the club reference the game in the style they did, as it left their rivals with absolutely no reply.

Things haven’t been going so well for Arsenal since then, but having replaced Wenger in the summer after 22 years, Unai Emery is hoping to re-establish them as a force in the Premier League and, having endured a couple of years out of the competition, the Champions League.

They will be hoping to progress in the Europa League, too, though they face a tough test against Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli in the next round. That clash, between two favourites, could be very intriguing.
