First up is West Brom!

First up is West Brom!

There was a time when you didn't know who Arsenal were playing until you got to the gate to pay your money to get through the turnstiles. Now the full fixture list is poured over in eager anticipation by those determined to second guess the pattern of the whole season ahead.

The event is heralded by blogosphere promising to get as close as they can to being first out with the information with much the same enthusiasm and fanfare as a docklands winebar serving the first of the Beaujolais Nouvelle.

At least it promises land ahead. Adrift in a sea of ever confused and fanciful transfer stories - where newspapers in England post the rumours listed in Spanish newspapers which are in turn published as Italian newspaper inventions which are in turn published in Spanish newspapers which are amplified in English papers and so on and so on - at least the fixture list shows us that one day real football will begin again.

Anyway, first up is home to newly promoted West Brom on the 16th August followed by away to Fulham and home to Newcastle. Not too bad a start methinks.

We get to face the first of the big three when ManU come to the Emirates in November and three of the last six games include games against ManU, Liverpool and Chelsea. We should be so far ahead by then that we could probably freewheel those ones.

Real football - bring it on!

"three of the last six games include games against ManU, Liverpool and Chelsea" - remember the old days when they used to pretend the fixture list wasn't totally rigged to try and create a 'narrative' for the season, or to help TV company's sell their 'Super Sunday's? Ah, we were young and innocent then.

I am very happy with our schedule. We should be able to get off to a great start, and by not playing the rest of the big 4 a second time till the last six games could very well help us too.
