Arsenal To Set New Record?

Arsenal To Set New Record?

Tomorrow see's Arsenal televised for their 16th consecutive match (Charlton match aside). Some kind of record? Dunno, but Wingston75 has a few opinions.


--------
Now, as we all know, on Wednesday we knocked out Bolton and their fat ingrate of a manager, and a tie against Blackburn in the next round awaits us, televised live at 12.15 by the BBC.

Is this some sort of record? perhaps.

The good thing about this is that it allows Gooners up and down the country the chance to see their beloved team in many games, providing they've got a telly, and sky, a mate who has, or like going to the pub on a regular basis (i do) :).

It also allows football fans up and down the country the chance to see what we've been going on about, so they can't say they haven't been warned about the large red and white dawn rising slowly over the country, It's already blinded Mank-chester and Liverpool with it's light, and i believe it will soon be eclipsing the residents of SW6 too.

But now the downside.

I kinda miss the 3pm Saturday kickoffs.

I used to love those Saturday's when I'd get up, and choose to do nothing, save for recovering from the night before, easing myself tentatively into the weekend, before settling down in a relaxed fashion, be it in bed or on the sofa, with the arsenal match playing out on my little clock radio, five live crackling away to the left of my ear, Mike Ingham informing me of the ebb and flow of the game.

It WAS Saturday.

Maybe i just don't like the fact that i have to listen to the twin Hams of West and Ful instead (and can you blame me?)

Whatever view you take of it, it's an incredible run of televised games we've had.

Know what you mean. Only just enough time to get down to Sainsburys and do the weekly shop before the match is on. Well, I suppose we shouldn't really complain too much...it seems all the media have suddenly woken up and recognised class viewing.

I moved here to the USA in 2005, i havent missed a single arsenal game, they are ALL televised here - although mid week games are a pain, if i cant get the time off work i need to watch the repeat which means no internet or contact with the folks back home from usually 2pm my time until the repeat usually at 8pm - but its a price im willing to pay - oh and english commentators on each game so none of these 'he was offsideS' plural

Last game I missed was Southampton v Arsenal in 2003. I got dragged to bingo (of all bloody things) by the girlfriend (It was her birthday, no excuse though I know!!!). We didn't win the bingo, that particular girlfriend became my ex soon after, but I still managed to catch the last 10 on five live, so it wasn't all bad! Before you guys ask, 1-0 to the Arsenal, Super Bob got the goal!

I never mind the commentary, be it dutch or arab or belgian... I never listen to it anyway. I hear people complain about the sky commentary and bbc and all that, but in a pub you could barely hear them even if you tried..so I dont mind them at all. the game is whats important.

www.espn.com, set your location to North America - they stream every champions league game live online for about $10 - due to licensensing restrictions set your location to North America

True about the 3pm kick offs, though even some midweek games with the commentry team on 5-live game me the same kind of buzz! I'll never forget the John Carew Valencia cup exit night! I don't think I'll ever get over that one. Heartbreaker!

and more Arsenal games being televised over seas too for a change - for those of us who can't get sky....legally that is. Finally it's no longer ManU or Liverpool every week on FoxSports (explains why there's so many bandwagon ManU fans in North America I guess). It's been great to actually watch matches instead of just reading text updates over gamecast every week....very tedious.
