So, we are back up and running with the football season after our long enforced break, and now the dates and times have now been confirmed for all of Arsenal’s game up until the first of July.
The games are set to come thick and fast, starting with the massive game against Man City at the Etihad, and the Gunners have 5 fixtures to be played in the space of just 15 days, which is going to be tough on the players who are likely to need time to get truly match-fit.
Strangely, the Man City games plus the next three, are all being played away from home, which may not be a bad thing when looking at how the Bundesliga results went in the first couple of weeks.
So here are the official dates and times for the first 5 Arsenal games:
Wednesday June 17
Man City vs Arsenal Kick-Off: 8.15pm;
Saturday June 20
Brighton v Arsenal Kick-Off: 3pm
Thursday June 25
Southampton vs Arsenal Kick-Off: 6pm;
Sunday June 28 (FA Cup Quarter-Final)
Sheffield United vs Arsenal Kick-Off: 1pm;
Wednesday 1 July
Arsenal v Norwich Kick-Off: 6pm
Luckily for us, the Man City and Brighton games are scheduled to be live on SkySports, while the Cup match against Sheffield United and the other two League games will be on BT Sport.
So, although we may not be able to go out much, at least we can sit back and enjoy a feast of football watching the Arsenal. And if we can get any sort of a result against Man City, perhaps we will still be unbeaten by the time July comes around…
We can sit back and enjoy a feast of football if we’re among the few with Sky or BT Sport. But I don’t see the feast coming from Arsenal. I’m a lifelong fan, but I think they are in terminal decline – competing with Wolves & Sheffield United for the middle ground and EUFA cup places. Welcome back Elneny. Give a new contract to Luiz. Bye-bye Holding and Chambers. Bye-bye Saka and Martinelli. Welcome any free transfers we can get (please, not Willian, although he’s in the right age bracket for us).
Just watched the racing from Newmarket, 1000 and 2000 Guineas. Ive got to say watching sport without a crowd is a bit like a roast beef sunday dinner, without Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, veg and horseradish sauce. So bland! Sign of the times.
it will be good to watch arsenal back in action as players are all fit and prepaired to fight for champions league
Welcome back Gunners, we are waiting to see you in action!
I know for sure the first game will be a difficult one to win but the others coming after it are all winnable.
How typical it is that The Premier League have given us four away games to start with, crowds or not, players will be be at an advantage playing in familiar circumstances. Having put their support firmly behind their beloved Liverpool I now hope that it all blows up in their face.with thousands congregating outside Goodison Park forcing them into a U turn and declaring the season null and void
