The North London Derby is a big game, Ted Harwood over at The Short Fuse is a nice dude, and we both have Skype. We decided to have a chat and record it for everyone's listening pleasure. Over the next few days up until the game, Ted and I are going to have some conversations about the derby, record them, and release them to you guys.

In this edition, Ted and I talk about the injuries to Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs. We expect Kos to play and Gibbs to fail to get fit for the Derby. We spend about 15 minutes discussing the implications for Arsenal's defense and midfield, how Arsenal's defense has struggled recently and what matchup problems could emerge if Arsene Wenger has to move his team around considerably.

Tomorrow, he gets to have his fun as we have a similar conversation about Emmanuel Adebayor and Rafael Van der Vaart. The audio file is below.
