Arsenal Travel To Liverpool On Opening Day

Arsenal Travel To Liverpool On Opening Day

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 for the full set matches.

Tough opener but at least it gets everyone's minds focused from the off. And this season we don't have to play a CL play-off. Let's hope we go there with a few new signings to lift everyone.

Fulham away last. Considering the quality of the pubs round there, I couldn't think of a better place to toast the title.

RealDanger, hopefully the title will have been won by then so we can rest players for the CL final :-)

5 of our group games are followed by tough away matches: at Sunderland on Sept 18, Chelsea on October 2, Manchester City on October 23, Aston Villa on November 27 and Manchester United on December 11. That's not good news.

No big deal.We only need Arshavin to be fit

LD - Should Spurs qualify for the Champions League group stage, 5 of our 6 group games are followed by a home fixture.
