Okay Arsenal fans, I may be jumping the gun here, because the draw for the Champions League group stage games has not been made yet. So there is still a chance that the Gunners get some luck and are handed a decent tie for matchday one, preferably on our home turf of the Emirates stadium.
We could certainly do with it, because the release of the TV schedule for domestic games has not been kind to us. You can see the full list of Arsenal games on TV and the times and dates of them on the Arsenal website.
You will not be surprised to see that all of our early games are on live and so the times have been changed a bit. And at least we do not have the problem of the early Champions League play off double header to worry about. But, we do have arguably the toughest Premier League fixture of the season, away to Chelsea, on the weekend after our first UCL group game. And to add a little bit of spice, our first League cup game is on the Tuesday or Wednesday after we go to Stamford Bridge.
So what have those lovely people at BT sport done for us? You guessed it, the early Saturday kick off of course. Now we must hope that Arsenal play on the Tuesday and at home, or either one. I have a feeling, however, that it will be the Wednesday, and away, and against our main rivals for the group.
