According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal’s showdown with Manchester United on 12 February will take place despite the prospect of a second London Underground strike in quick succession.
A reduced service on many tube lines has left much of the capital crippled by today’s industrial action with many a Steve Martin opting to stay at home rather than John Candy their way to work.
While the second strike has yet to be confirmed the club believes fans should still be able to make their way to the Emirates safely despite potential restrictions on the Piccadilly and Victoria Lines.
On the surface delaying the fixture must have looked tempting given DEATHRUN 1, but it’s not overly surprising that we’re going to push ahead.
You suspect BT Sport will have had a say given the large amount of cash they’ve doled out to televise such a high-profile fixture and let’s be honest, United look pretty ropey right now – if we can’t beat them at the moment…yeah best not jinx it…
