Great for those of us who were ripped from our natural habitat by our nasty parents at a young age and forced to grow up miles from the club we love.

Hectic schedule. After Liverpool away on 4 Mar, we travel to Bayern for CL on 7 Mar, followed by Leicester at home 4 days later.

True,but consolation if any, is the fact that Leicester themselves also have CL commitments too, so both teams will be knackered!….at least we are playing at home

Southampton just did us a huge favour in advancing to the EFL-cup final i reckon. It means that if we win on Saturday, we get at least 14 days off between the fifth fa-cup round and the L’pool game. If we lose, we get to sit out the fifth round, giving us an additional 3 days rest. I’d take the win, obviously, and it feels good to know that the boys will be given some time to recover 🙂 With tough fixtures coming up thick and fast during that part of the season, we could really do with a mini… Read more »

Just to be clear, since our league fixture vs Southampton clashes with the EFL-final, the date of that fixture will be changed, giving us the interlull that i mentioned previously.

Hmmm, Liverpool away*.

We really, really owe the BT Sports Advertisement Team, Michael Owen and Steve McManaman a massive serving of ShutTheFuckUp Pie for that one.

Let that go and just enjoy beating them in the FA Cup. And then again in the league whenever that match may be rescheduled.

Games on Saturday with a 3pm kick off are not televised. I believe this is something to do with keeping attendance up at stadiums?

Any time a match is moved later in the day, all we North American supporters breathe a sigh of relief. Too bad about the West Brom change, that’ll be a 3:30a alarm clock so I can get to the pub by 4:30a, but hey, when you support the ARSENAL, that’s just what you do. And at least we have a pub that will open for us at 4:30 in the morning.

I am genuinely curious as to the poison of choice at this hour. On top of a killer dose of moronic refereeing and our boys going for glory in the dying minutes, that is.

Sadly, because they closed at 2:00a, opening again at 4:00a to let us in represents the start of a new day. And here in BC, you are not allowed to sell alcohol until 9:00 in the morning. So the poison of choice is coffee. They do a nice breakfast for us though, even have a special Arsenal menu with the logo printed on it.
