Danger period ahead

It is that time of the season again…Normally during the packed December schedule, we kind of lose our sight and feel crampy in the cold and lose our way in the league. From defeats to draws we make our Christmas feel miserable for the team and supporters. The snow has started falling, and the matches are going to set off one after the other soon.

And this is probably the time when we will be involved in a lot of matches and injuries and suspensions come to haunt us. We are already suffering with our beloved captain resting and not looking like getting back soon. But hopefully we have a fit squad minus Nasri who seems to be having a minor trouble. So lets set that aside and look at the fixtures ahead. (Courtesy: BBC Sports)

Saturday, 4 December 2010
Barclays Premier League
Arsenal v Fulham, 15:00 – Well this is hopefully an easy 3 points in the league
Wednesday, 8 December 2010
Uefa Champions League
Arsenal v Partizan Belgrade, GpH, 19:45 – A must win match for us as we have to ensure qualification on our own merit rather than depend on some other result

Monday, 13 December 2010

Barclays Premier League
Man Utd v Arsenal, 20:00 – Monday night in India, this is a tough one…and we will certainly be the underdogs playing at Old Trafford
Saturday, 18 December 2010
Barclays Premier League
Arsenal v Stoke, 15:00 – This will be one of those tricky fixtures with a lot of pressure incase we concede first and even if we score first we will still feel insecure with a 2 goal lead
Monday, 27 December 2010
Barclays Premier League
Arsenal v Chelsea, 20:00 – The other big one where we will be the underdogs even if we would have been playing them at home. We certainly seem to lose the plot whenever we play them home or away. Drogba might retain his goal scoring form in this match
Wednesday, 29 December 2010
Barclays Premier League
Wigan v Arsenal, 19:45 – Tricky away matches in the cold away at Wigan
Saturday, 1 January 2011
Barclays Premier League
Birmingham v Arsenal, 17:30 – Another travel away from home in the new year…lets say not an easy match
Wednesday, 5 January 2011
Barclays Premier League
Arsenal v Man City, 19:45 – Tough one again, but I think we have the quality to beat them again this season
Saturday, 8 January 2011
The FA Cup
Arsenal v Leeds United, R3, 15:00 – The FA cup tie which will be crucial for us to be competing in a few competitions come January end.
So in the Premier league we have 21 points to play for between today and Jan 8th, that is like in about a month’s time. We should ideally aim for atleast 15 points and I think we would have come out of this unscathed. Anything more will tilt a lot of things in our favour.
More thoughts on this as the month progresses. And also I want to write about the 2018 and 2022 world cup bids…
