Tottenham Hotspur Vs. Arsenal: What Does The North London Derby Mean To You?

As we've discussed on this site, I'm not a big "rivalry" guy. I am not the type of person who gets into hating other teams. I don't live in North London, so I don't really have a good reason to hate Arsenal. However, it's obvious that the North London Derby is more than just another game against a very good team for a lot of fans of both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, and I'm interested to hear about it.

I know that this site has readers from all around the world, but that the vast majority are from the United States, or at least not the UK. What does the North London Derby mean to you guys? Is it much more important do you than other games? Do you really hate Arsenal? If so, what about them makes your blood boil? I'd really like to have a discussion about this in the comments, because I'm genuinely curious about how much rivalry games mean to the readers of this site.

We discussed this a bit during the first derby, but this site's membership and traffic has more than doubled since then, so I think it's worth having this discussion again. If any Arsenal fans want to join in, please do. We won't call you a troll unless you are deliberately trolling, and we won't yell slurs at you.

Right guys? Don't yell slurs at the Arsenal fans.

Discuss away.
