Jamie O’Hara, the ex-Spurs pundit Arsenal fans love to make fun of more than most others, says watching Arsenal playing so well is ‘painful’ and he’ll ‘move’ if the Gunners win the league.
Across North London, the contrast between Arsenal and Tottenham couldn’t be more stark.
While Tottenham fans boo and grumble while they play rubbish football and run out of luck to steal points, up the road in N5 it’s party central.
As Dan pointed out on Twitter, when Arsenal fell behind to West Ham on Boxing Day, the reaction of the Arsenal crowd was not to boo or get annoyed. No, they got louder in an attempt to drown out the celebrating West Ham fans.
Whatever is happening at Arsenal at the minute is special, and everybody who has anything to do with the club knows it.
With the Gunners also sitting seven points clear of Manchester City at the top of the league and 13 ahead of Tottenham, with a game in hand, Spurs pundits are starting to get really concerned.
None more so than Jamie O’Hara.
“It’s painful,” said O’Hara on talkSPORT. “It’s hard but fair play to Arsenal.
“They have invested right. They have bought the right player, and Arteta plays a really attractive style of football and the belief is there.
“You can see it in his interviews and in the way they play. They really fancy themselves.
“It is the complete opposite [of Tottenham].
“If they win the league, I’m moving.”
