Arsenal Open Against Everton (a)

Arsenal Open Against Everton (a)

Fans of Premier League teams will get their first sniffter of next season's action today as the fixtures for the 09/10 season are officially announced.

The money grabbing fat cats at Premier League head quarters have once again ensured that we can't bring you the full fixture list, but we can bring you a little snippet along as well as pointing the footballing impaired in the right direct of the full fixture list over at Arsenal.com

The mighty Gunners start the coming season's campaign with an away day on the Mersey facing Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday August 15th. Arsenal drew 1-1 at Goodison last season with Robin van Persie smashing an impressive 90th minute equaliser past Tim Howard after Tim Cahill had given the Toffees the lead.

Arsenal will take on their North London 'rivals' at Ashburton Grove on Saturday 31st October. Football fans everywhere will be hoping for a match that will be equal in entertainment as last season's 4-4 draw, however Arsenal fans may hope for a slightly different result.

I can't bring you the date (check Arsenal.com for exact details) but the month of December will see probably the most hostile of match days (assuming Phil Brown is still in the job) when Hull City visit the new home of football. Controversy reigned in an FA Cup match last season leading to the orange idiot making up various lies about Arsenal Football Club, the worst of which was intended to soil the name of the young Arsenal captain.

All dates will be subject to change at the mercy of Sky Sports and Setanta.

massively tricky start- we'll know if we are in the race... or out of it, but October....

With Goodison and Old Trafford early on, we have to get new signings sorted and bedded in quickly. We will need to start well and those are two of the toughest fixtures we'll play alls eason. On a bright note, apart from Matchday 6 (assuming we qualify for the CL group stages), all of our CL games are followed by London fixtures.

I was thinking the exact same thing as soon as I saw the fixtures LD. It would make very little sense to wait till the last minute to save a few extra quid, as that decision could cost us massively in the long run. We got lucky with AA gelling so quickly, but it rarely works that way!!

As a counter to that though DANNYT (not that I overly disagree) is to look at the last 12 games. That looks a decent run in.

I am sure that Arsene is going to wrap up our transfers early this time - when is our pre-season training meant to start?

Gulp - Look at the end of Jan/start of Feb ...... Villa, United, Chelsea and Liverpool all in a row. Someone must really hate us.

But look at the games that follow it. If we can be three or four points off the top after that lot, we're in with a very good chance indeed.

We play United, Liverpool, and Chelsea in the space of ten days in the late parts of winter. That is absolutely bull.
