Sky and BT have done their usual mucking around with the fixtures and despite not making us play Liverpool on Christmas Eve, they managed to sneak in something you could argue was even worse.

Arsenal sent out an email just now revealing that we are now set to play West Brom away on New Years Eve, just 7 hours before the turn of the year, where most people will be trying to avoid Jools Holland and struggling to stand up. The move is sure to go down like a lead balloon as many fans will struggle to get back to their already planned New Year’s Eve events.

Wilshere to Spain in January?

Thanks Sky!
