The pre-game handshake

It has been a crazy up and down season of emotions for Arsenal fans. The highs have been great and the lows have been miserable. Unfortunately, this has led to some divisions and bickering between supporters.

One thing that always unites Arsenal fans, however, is the North London derby. Nothing brings people together like a common enemy, and the rivalry between Arsenal and Spurs goes back over 100 years.

Going in to Sunday's match against Tottenham, Arsenal fans were even more tense than usual. For the first time in the Arsene Wenger era, Spurs have a chance to finish above the Gunners in the Premier League table. The last time this happened was in 1995. A Tottenham win would widen the gap between the two teams at 13. An Arsenal win would bring the point difference down to seven.

Leading up to the game, the "Twitterverse" was abuzz with trash talk and pre-game predictions. One of the best things about Twitter is the ability to connect with football fans from all over the world. The "Gooner Family" on Twitter is vast and allows for some great banter between supporters.

The pre-match trash talking between Spurs and Arsenal fans was filling my Twitter time line, and I took note of some of the comments as the game progressed.

So here is a sampling of the commentary on the North London Derby, courtesy of Twitter.
