Arsenal’s game at Brentford on Sunday rearranged …. for the same day

All this pussyfooting around with games being postponed on a seemingly random basis can only be a nightmare for Arsenal fans that have made plans to watch the Gunners, since before the death of Queen Elizabeth was announced halfway through the Europa League clash with FC Zurich.

The next day (Friday) the game against Everton on Saturday (and all the other Premier League games) were cancelled as a mark of respect for the Queen, but it was extremely short notice for all the fans that were on their way to London to watch the game, while Rugby, Racing, Golf and Cricket fans all continued their usual timetables on Saturday.

Everyone thought that the Europa League games would go ahead as usual, but earlier this afternoon we have found out that the match against PSV has been cancelled by the police, but just a few hours later, we now find out that Sunday’s London derby (which we expected to be scrubbed) will now go ahead, but 2 hours earlier, at 12 noon instead of 2pm.

I am certainly confused, especially as another London game, at Chelsea, will NOT go ahead on Sunday.

Has everyone understood all that!

  1. I’ve read part of the problem are the fans ,when you are seeing Leeds v Man Utd postponed there is obviously some other underlying problem ,also the Liverpool game off, their fans booed the national anthem not so long ago .

  2. Basically its a shambles. There was no reason to postpone matches last weekend and certainly other sports went ahead without a problem. Naturally no one asked the fans themselves what they thought.

    As I understand it the postponements at the weekend are due to lack of police, but again it seems random. Why there are no police available Thursday but there are Saturday (Arsenal/Brentford, Spurs/Leicester) is beyond me.

    There is an obvious danger that PSV may appeal as under EUFA rules they could be awarded the points if an acceptable date to play the game can’t be agreed.

    1. I’ve been told that it’s due to sky struggling to get cameras to the live fixtures due to the Queens funeral

  3. Hopefully our players will recuperate suffieciently..
    This loan thing with Marquinioz sounds silly from a fans
    perspective!! we want to see him play and develop before
    our eyes not somewhere else !!
