Sky Sports to show ALL Arsenal’s April league games

Sky Sports have selected all four of Arsenal’s April Premier League fixtures for live broadcast in a move which could cause disruption for anyone who plans their life around football.

The games against Everton and West Ham have been moved from Saturday to Sunday, the match against Hull has been made a Saturday 5.30pm kick-off, while the showdown with Newcastle is now on a Monday.

Everton v Arsenal, Sunday 6 April, 1.30pm

Arsenal v West Ham United, Sunday 13 April, 12.00pm

Hull City v Arsenal, Saturday 19 April, 5.30pm

Arsenal v Newcastle United, Monday 28 April, 8.00pm

For those of you who watch all the games on TV it could be a bumper month if Arsenal also progress in the Champions League and FA Cup.

If you’re running the London Marathon (as my brother is) you’d better do it quickly as you’ll be hard pushed to make the Emirates for the midday kick-off with the Hammers. Your best bet is Arsenal making the FA Cup semi-final in which case the Hammers clash will have to be postponed.

  1. Who remembers that glorious winter (2004-2005 I think) where something like 14-15 Arsenal games were on TV in a row?

    I’m so glad that was my first year of Uni.

  2. does this mean the games may be changed back if we get knocked out of champions league early?

    i saw it get mentioned on the website that it was due to CL scheduling that it changed?

  3. If you make your plans 3 months ahead expecting game to kick off at a time which it only has a 60% of doing youre silly.
    For us recession bound Irish Gooners this is good news, no more Tony Gale commentary online with more pop ups than a lesbian porn site

  4. If we beat Everton in fa cup then west ham game is bound to move further. But I am glad all these games are on tv. Atleast, we can watch our beloved arsenal week in week out.

  5. Arsenal fans now need to see the game through the lens of an Arsenal fan, not that of a biased pundit who dont know what it is like to have supported and followed this team through the past 10 years. It is our time to help the team push forward and over the line. It is a good team and we can help our club grow from strength to strength over the next few years. COYG!

  6. The way it should be. Who wants to watch boring Chelski scrape 1-0 victories or boring draws? Plus people are getting a little bit bored and it’s to much energy to laugh at Man United every weekend. People want to see the sexy Arsenal type football that we all enjoy. :-D

  7. Bout time Sky Sports gave us Gooners our monies worth. They’ve been screening too many sp*rs games of late for my liking

  8. The Stoke cunts are planning to hold a minutes silence on the 67th minute this weekend apparently, as that is when Ramsey broke his leg. I really f’in hope we score in that minute.

  9. To Anil above….you do realise fixtures are subject to change…right?

  10. Heading for the away day at Everton. Im driving and booked a refundable premier inn a month ago for the Saturday night, now it’s been moved to the Sunday I just cancelled the room and booked an even cheaper premier inn for the Sunday night (as the grand national is on the Saturday) – happy days. I do feel for people coming over from Ireland for games as booking flights is an issue and prices go up quickly- people don’t realise how many people come over and attend games in the premier league generally #greengunners sort it out sky.

  11. Really looking forward to this run of games. Real potential for some spankings to up the goals tally. But I fear that only 12/12 points will keep us amongst Chelsea & City… & he’s no Le Bob, but Olivier in High Def.. *Swoon*

  12. I think the Arsenal bias from the media is rediculous they should be behind us cause if we dont stand up to these money rich clubs, who will?

    Certainly not Man U and finacially Liverpool still cant compete.. what i will say tho is thir giving it a very good go..

  13. Feel for people coming from America. I’m going to go insane if I don’t book the trip for around September instead of around my birthday in March.

  14. The thing that worries me is the early kick offs against Everton and WHU. We already had a couple of horror performances at early kick offs.

  15. Getting used to booking trains early and having to deal with matchday changes train disruption or not getting home without an expensive cab journey after the last train has gone.Its all worth it though. COYG

  17. In the US we can get every game, free, on NBC Sports Network.When I got here 11 years ago there would be a game on every few months on an obscure channel.

  18. Here in Canada we’ve been able to watch every Arsenal match live for a number of years. We’ve got Sportsnet, with seven channels, and TSN, with two channels, and between the lot of them they show almost every PL match live.

    That said, I can understand how moving the matches from one day to another causes a lot of grief. I travel to England to watch the Arsenal once or twice a season, and I have no choice but to buy my ticket ten to twelve weeks in advance. Having a match moved to Monday would be a disaster.

  19. If we progress in the FA CUP the Hammers match will be postponed right?

    Does anyone have an idea on what date that fixture would take place? I have two tickets for the match and I need to book flights from Germany. Obviously I would like to do that as soon as possible :)
