Reading v Arsenal
The Madejski Stadium
Sunday 22nd October
The term 'Super Sunday' was coined by the Sky Sports PR team, and tomorrow it is indeed just that. First of all we have the hate fuelled Man Utd v Liverpool and in the evening we have the 'El Classico' Real Madrid v Barcelona, and sandwiched inbetween is Arsenal's trip to The Madejski Stadium.
Out of the three promoted clubs, this fixture is by far the trickiest. Reading are playing some pretty tasty football, they drew with Man Utd and it took Fat Franks monthly deflected goal for Chelsea to get anything from the game, indeed Reading nearly took the lead themselves with a ferocious shot smashing against the post.
Make no mistake, Reading will give us one hell of a game, and they could get something from it too. Arsene Wenger needs to make sure his tactics are spot on, and the players can not be complacent.
COME ON YOU GUNNERS
"You can only play 11 players but you can educate 50. Not everyone in the Academy can be successful. You know that not all of them will play for you. But if you contribute to the standard of football and players at your Club then you have done your job."
