At the risk of being called a secret Gooner or some other abhorrent insult, I cannot agree that Arsenal did the wrong thing in getting the North London derby match postponed.
Is it a grotesque manipulation of the rules? Of course it is but that does not change the fact that they did the right thing for themselves.
It was not Arsenal that set the precedent for this sort of gamesmanship, it was the Premier League and the 20 clubs that agreed the rules, Arsenal just took advantage of them in the same way Liverpool, Leicester City and others have done.
Obviously, this gives us a load of banter to lay at their door, especially when their fans were crying rivers of tears over Liverpool cancelling their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg match earlier this month but we would have done exactly the same if the shoe was on the other foot.
The rules are clearly being abused but if it suited Tottenham to abuse the very same rules to their own advantage you can take it to the bank that they would have done.
My issue is not with Arsenal, there is far more about them that I detest but utilising rotten rules to ensure that they are able to put out their best team is not one of them.
It may even suit Tottenham more in the long run because we are hardly setting the world alight at the moment and I would much rather face any Arsenal team with Son Heung-min, Eric Dier and Cristian Romero in the side.
The long and short of this sorry episode is that there is no point whining at Arsenal, if we have to take our frustrations out on anyone it is the Premier League and the debacle they are currently overseeing.
