Arsenal’s home game with Brighton rescheduled

15

Arsenal have confirmed that our game with Brighton will now take place on Sunday, 5 May at 4.30pm.

The match with the Seagulls had been pencilled in for the Saturday but our progression in the Europa League necessitates a switch.

Yesterday, the club confirmed our match with Leicester City had also been subject to a change.

We’re pretty sure there won’t be any further changes to the fixture list, so here’s what lies ahead for the rest of the season. Four games away, three at home and a potential final.

They don’t make it easy for English teams to win stuff on Europe do they

That schedule is pretty brutal

Agree – the games are coming thick and fast now so avoiding injuries (as best we can, anyway) and any suspensions is a priority now. I guess it’s pretty much the same for Spurs and Chelsea and, to a lesser extent now, Utd. I just hope that the squad is good enough to cope.

Did you see the Dutch league giving teams a week off so Ajax can rest before the Sp*rs game? Our FA seem to throw logs in our path like some deranged final boss on donkey kong.

But we are one of the richest teams in the world. If the owner invested a bit more we’d have a deeper squad to cope.

Rambo injury is the one worrying me.

From our own resources, we’re certainly not “one of the richest teams in the world” if you mean generating profits, rather than turnover which isn’t the same at all. The last financial figures (to May 2018) showed a profit of about £20 million or so – but that all came from transfers (there was a report on this site somewhere). Arsenal have never made maga-profits, the best years came from a mixture of mainly transfers and (in the early days of the move to The Emirates), property sales, which have long dried up. It’s true that Kroenke is a billionaire. Ironically, Mrs K is even richer (she’s an heiress to a little US retailer called Walmart). However, as owner, Kroenke hasn’t invested into the club itself – what he’s done is pay people for their shares. Nothing went into Arsenal FC – the money was to change ownership, that’s all. There’s no indication that Kroenke will use any of his own money to provide the club with additional funds. He never has and very probably never will. Sorry to disappoint you.

We are ninith in revenues following Delloitte’s Football Money League dated January 2019. We are sixth Most Valuable Football Club according to Forbes list dated March 2019. I think that’s what he means but , although we have The fourth richest owner of Europe’s Football teams and sixth overall , It doesn’t matter because our owner tops The list of less money invested at The club.

Here’s some things to look up in your spare time: non sequitur, syllogistic reasoning, zero-sum game, mutually exclusive. Over to you.

My thoughts exactly. I worry that with current injuries that there just isn’t quite enough quality/depth in the squad to fight on all fronts.

Plenty of challenges here.. Leicester have won four of their last five pl matches. Brighton is fourth last in a desperate relegation fight. Palace and Burnley are unlikely to be relegated, but if the bottom teams should suddenly start winning, it is possible. Valencia is pretty much in the same situation as Arsenal: They can still qualify for CL through La Liga, where they are three points behind Sevilla in fourth. Or they could win the Europa league.

It’s a little worrying imagining how all our hope could turn to shit in the space of a few days mid-may. I really hope we put in some good performances between now and then – if the luck goes our way top 4 could conceivably be secure before we go to Turf Moor.

17 day gap between Burnley and a potential EL Final is too much. Hard to be switched on after a long season. Even for a final…

What?

Ridiculous.

All hard from here on end.

Wolves would be on paper the trickiest away. It will be stern.

BUT we need to treat every match with due respect.

Business end, no excuses, psychologically we need to be prepared to play through the ‘schedule’.

This is where the gaffer has to work his art. Tactics is one thing, rotation but psychological motivation to coax the best out of individual players and as a collective now comes to bear.

Some players will be more vulnerable in thought than others.

We need a fortitude in purpose and a sense of invulnerability to minor niggles etc.

We need to raise our game and be sharp in front of goal take those chances, be less forgiving. COYG.
