The Barclays Premier League fixture list has been released and Arsenal start their campaign away at Newcastle on August 13th. That’s followed by a home game against Liverpool.
St James’s Park holds bad memories for Arsenal. A scintillating first half last season saw them go in at half-time 4-0 up, but a combination of Abou Diaby’s red card, Phil Dowd’s refereeing and some Sunday League defending allowed the home side to achieve a remarkable, and horribly painful, comeback.
August also holds an away trip to champions Manchester United while the first North London derby is scheduled for October 1st. All fixtures are liable to change because of TV. TV has the power. And once you get the power, then you get the money, and then you get the women.
