The last time Tottenham Hotspur Women hosted Arsenal in the WSL it was in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in front of a raucous crowd of 38,000 fans, a league record for a English women’s football match. They lost. This season, Spurs have played Arsenal twice — once in the league and once in the WSL Cup. They lost both. That’s the bad news. The worse news is that Arsenal, one of the winningest and historical best women’s club in Europe, are still way ahead of Spurs in talent and table position.
But hope is a thing with feathers, and cockerels have feathers. Tottenham are hosting Arsenal in the Women’s North London Derby, again at the new stadium, trying to earn their first ever win over their rivals. This time, there are no fans to cheer them on, but they’re hoping that the spectacle of playing the match in the best stadium in England will have some positive effect. Spurs have narrowed the gap between the clubs, and maybe, just maybe, that will pay off today.
Here’s hoping, anyway. Come watch with us!

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic,
- or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
