Have Arsenal topped Tottenham's summer spending by signing just one player?
The pendulum in North London appears to swing with alarming regularity, with Arsenal fans going from being dejected to elated within the space of a few days.
This time last week, Tottenham fans were crowing as their club wrapped up the signing of £30 million Erik Lamela, which they swiftly followed up by adding Christian Eriksen and Vlad Chiriches
When Arsenal added free signing Mathieu Flamini, it appeared to sum up everything which was wrong with the club's transfer policy.
Spurs had also added Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado.
It was supposed to signal a summer of change, as Arsenal inexplicably failed to spend, before yesterday.
In between, Arsenal defeated Spurs when it mattered, winning 1-0 in the Premier League fixture at the weekend thanks to an Olivier Giroud goal.
Tottenham subsequently confirmed the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world record £85 million, which appeared to trigger Arsenal's blockbuster deal.
Arsenal last night wrapped up the signing of German international Mesut Ozil, a player Jose Mourinho described as the 'best number 10 in Europe'.
Last week we looked at how Arsenal fans reacted on Twitter to their rivals signing Erik Lamela, and they were not happy.
Following Arsenal's £42.4 million capture of Ozil, we have turned that piece on it's head to take a look at how Spurs fans reacted to Arsenal sealing a club record deal.
Ozil has a release clause that allows him to leave if Arsenal don't qualify for the CL this season. Just hope he enjoys his year here. #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur FC (@TTID_1882) September 2, 2013
That special relationship with Real Madrid has gone well eh? Getting screwed on Coentrao, and helped Ozil to Arsenal. F off. #THFC— Matt Lichtenstadter (@MattsMusings1) September 2, 2013

Ozil is a fantastic signing for them but its still only 1 signing and they are stil weak in certain areas We are still a stronger side #thfc— White Hart Lane (@Daily_Spurs) September 2, 2013
