Kick off time for Chelsea away?


Oops. 12.45!

Mein Bergkampf

After Jose banging on about the class of Chelsea for allowing Cech to move and before him looking at himself in the mirror and saying “I’ve made a huge mistake” ala Gob Bluth.

Dr Funke

I can’t wait to see all those balls safely in Cech’s hands!



remember the invincibles

Saturday 12:45 away to Newcastle. uh oh.

Me So Hornsey

BT Sport based their adverts on Arsenal lunchtime away thrashings last season and now they’ve aquired two of our lunchtime away games again. What is there problem with us?




‘I’ve been checking in for a cheque Nigga, know what I’m talking bout?’


Sadly, I have no idea.



AN other

Yeah, you are still living in 80s.

Mark Hughes

From what I can gather, it’s from a song called Grindin’ My Whole Life

A Badger

There’s no time for the Chelsea Away match.

A Badger

OK, now there is. sorry.


Two 12.45s and two 1.30s. I can’t see arsene being too thrilled with so many early games that early in season. I sense a whinge in our future…..

Clock-End Mike

Boo. I do not like Monday night matches. Why reschedule a weekend match on to a Monday? It’s not even the weekend.

And BBC MOTD never show the Monday match highlights. Might get 10 seconds on Football Focus.


This time next year we’ll have matches being scheduled on Friday nights.. Can’t decide if I really like the idea or hate it.


Leeds at Highbury. Henry scores 4. Friday night football ain’t too bad.

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

There’s already going to be Friday night matches this season. Or at least one – Villa vs United on August 14.

Hamburg Gooner

May 26th, 1989 … was a Friday

In Germany wer have Friday night games and it´s good – way better than Monday nights


How have BT got Chelsea vs Arsenal, the match between the two main title contenders?




Wait before the 12:45 game away at chelski don’t we have a champions league game on either the Tuesday or Wednesday?

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

Yes but 1) so will Chelsea, 2) being a big club means dealing with multiple big fixtures in short windows, and 3) wait and see the draw before you panic. We could be home to whatever pot four team while Chelsea are away to Madrid, who knows.


Oh dear. Yes we do. Bet it’s away in someplace like Maribor. Yet another cock up by UEFA and the FA.


Jeez have to get up in the middle of the night for 4 out of the first 5…….what we do for The Arsenal out of love…


Fucking cunts. Here in Vancouver our pub won’t open for any match earlier than 3:00p UK time. So no get togethers for three of the first four, and I have to take a three hour lunch for the fourth. Plus no get together for Chel$ki. Fuck me, what a disgusting set of game times.

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

Is there some rule that you have to meet at a pub? I mean, I get that it’s nice, but surely someone in your group of gooners has a house that can be used for having people in it temporarily?

Yankee Gooner

We’ve seen what Vancouverites do when their NHL team wins: would you let THAT gang in your house for arsenal v chel$ki?


Seriously, would your wife let you bring twenty people into the house for a party at four in the morning?

Springbank 1962

Yeah. But you still get to live in Vancouver.


True. It’s been exceptionally beautiful this summer, something like fourteen days in a row now with the temperature 30 degrees or above and no end in sight. Plus the womens’ world cup in town this year, it’s been brilliant. Plus Kelly Smith working in Vancouver for Fox Sports the last month – I’ve met her a couple of times, lovely lady. Hope she recovers quickly and starts banging in goals for the Arsneal Ladies again real soon.

Just saw the Arseblog clip of Diaby at Anfield 2012
It was all Abou…….tears to my eyes. (Had he been a fit Bunny, who knows what he was capable of)
Let’s bring the Title home for him.

Mark Hughes

Off topic but Mourinho has just been sacked in my Football Manager game. He left Chelsea languishing in 9th.


I think your Football Manager game is an excellent predictor of real life.
