Arsenal’s Carabao Cup clash with Blackpool has been scheduled for 7.45pm on Wednesday 31 October.
For those who care about these things, it could get in the way of any Halloween plans.
The game should provide an opportunity for some of Vam-per Mertesacker’s Academy graduates to get game time (shame we released Vlad Dragomir) and for fringe players like Mohamed Hellneny and Danny Hellbeck to ‘stake’ a claim. Wahey!
Here’s hoping it’s not a nightmare.
Any Arsenal Halloween puns? Let us know in the comment section…Blogs came up with the following: Frankenstein Stapleton, Slayed Kolasinac, Snarl Jenkinson.
