Are Arsenal fans looking forward to Friday night football? Top on Saturday morning?

So the dominance of TV on the footballing schedules takes a new twist on Friday night when Arsenal take on Leicester under the floodlights at the Emirates. Friday night is traditionally the night out with the lads after a hard week at work, so will everyone be happy to forgo their Friday pint to go straight to the Emirates to watch the Gunners?

We all know it is just another cynical ploy for the TV networks to get another live game on the screens, but Theo Walcott thinks that the novelty could work in Arsenal favour as we look to go top of the table before everyone else plays over the weekend. “A night game might be better for us,” he said. “It’s a bit different, a bit new for us and our fans will be up for it.

“Home support is always crucial and that will be so key this season as the fans will just be behind the team from kick off all the way through.

“Clear eyes, full Arsenal, can’t lose.”

Home support was not at it’s best last season with the Wenger Out banners and the crazy plane stunts, but as we go into the new season with new stars and new hope that we can finally win the title again, the crowd should be well and truly behind the team, but will everyone be happy that we are playing on a Friday night?

    I guess because it is the first game of the season there will be a full house anyway. Team needs to set the tone of the evening though. I hope they will do just that.

    Wenger yesterday:
    “Physically we are ready”

    SO NO EXCUSES THIS TIME.

      ..that comment by wenger also implies he is expecting leicester to pose a physical threat more than a footballing one. if we recall last meeting several player of theirs gave us a difficult time in as much huth, fuchs and benaloune were almost uncontrollable and a few deserved to be red-carded.

      *it says a lot about the quality of the last game that the fiery moments were more eye‑catching than much of the play – be optimistic we can remain disciplined and focused so we sail past LCFC

      “We lacked a bit of cohesion”

      “MR Cohesion should be back in training next week. He’s like a new signing”

    I wonder if he’ll go 343. Leicester will work on set pieces, it helps us more with the set pieces. But with wing-backs, we really need everyone to be on their game when it’s a case of each wing-back having two opponents down his wing. With Ozil out we should have someone like Welbeck who is good at working his socks off, but Alexis is out too. Ramsey could be out also. Our first three choices all out. If Iwobi could put that effort in, like Welbeck, it’d be great. Not liking Arsene using Walcott there, didn’t like that idea one little bit. I’d rather Perez there than Walcott, but we’re trying to sell him.

    The game is no big deal. The only big deal there is the Referee. I don’t usually complain about referee. In fact, I like giving them benefit of doubt for their misdeeds. BUT i have a very convincing reason to believe that Mike Devil …..(sorry Dean) is a pain in the anus.

    This is gonna be a tight game. Leicester will come with lots of energy and organisation and will be difficult to break down without Ozil and Sanchez.

    We can expect overconfidence, overplaying, and suicidal/difficult passes from Arsenal (tiki take 6 yards in front of goal). Hope we win but it’ll be tight. Also hope the players raise their game to the special occasion of hosting an opener, so hopefully the fans will give them this energy!

    0-0 or 1-0 (late goal from a sub)

    I am looking forward to the game, a few pints on a Friday and watching the Arsenal sounds good to me.

    My only concern is which Arsenal will turn up, the one who fought to the win the FA cup and charity shield, got stuck in and played as a team. Or the Arsenal who can sometimes turn up where the players appear to not know each other and struggle to pass the ball to each other, close down or fight for the 2nd or 3rd ball.

    Let’s hope it’s the Arsenal we know and love.
