It's that time of summer that every football fan is usually waiting for with baited breath, it's the announcement of the fixtures for the 2010/11 season.
This year of course, we've had the World Cup to hold our attention, so it's kind of crept up on us a little bit, but fixture list releasement day is the first hint of club football in what usually are long drawn out summers.
In the 2010/11 title challenge (note the pre-season confidence there) Arsenal will begin their campaign at away to Liverpool. The Gunners emerged victorious at Anfield last season and will be hoping to emulate that fantastic 2-1 result.
After being 1-0 down at half time, Arsene Wenger famously blasted the Gunners players claiming they 'weren't fit to wear the shirt'. Arsenal came out firing in the second half and an own goal from Glen Johnson and a goal from Anfield's favorite Gooner, Andrei Arshavin saw Arsenal make a remarkable come back.
The Gunners will also face a tricky tie against at home to Chelsea over the Christmas period, and will tackle the newly Champions Leagueised Tottenham Hotspur in the first North London derby in the month of November.
You will of course remember that the tight-wads at the FA refuse to allow any website to publish the full season fixture list without paying a £270,432.27p tax, and of course this is an absolute travesty that an independent network like Vital Football simply can't afford, so I'll point you in the direction of Arsenal.com for the full set matches.
