Joe did recognise the importance of the moment however, saying, “It was an amazing occasion. We’re very proud to have been a part of it. To have the passion, to have the rivalry, to have the tribalism. It was fantastic.” And it was noteworthy that Tottenham had also had a big crowd for the Chelsea game.
Of course there a problem in that the growth in attendances is so rapid (we’re getting to the position where one weekend’s fixtures can get close to the total crowd of last season through the whole league) that there can be worries that it can slip away just as quickly.
But at least we have a league that is exciting with the top three all within a point of each other. Here’s the table…
Of course we didn’t have the 10-0 result of the last game between the two , back in 2017, but nevertheless Arsenal won, and that’s enough to be going on with.
Naturally the newspapers that have covered the game are full of the merits of Tottenham, how they have risen up the league “on merit” (as the Guardian puts it) suggesting that other clubs have bought their win into the top division, and highlighting a quadruple which apparently meant winning the Ryman’s Women’s Cup, the FA Women’s Premier League Cup, the Capital Cup and promotion (although I am bit vague that these were the competitions Tottenham won, as the Guardian merely makes the claim without giving any details.
It was a shame that with the ground less than half full, Tottenham Hotspur could not see their way to allow more Arsenal fans into the ground, but no, they had to limit the visiting attendance, suspecting trouble I suppose.
Still, we won, and we are continuing to stay in touch with the top big clubs funded with amounts of money that Arsenal’s women’s team can only dream of.
But on the pitch the dream is very much alive.
