This time last season, Arsenal started the season with 3 defeats. What a difference a year makes! And for the second week in a row, we get a kickoff time favorable to West Coast Gooners, when Arsenal welcome Fulham on Saturday at 9:30am.
The atmosphere at the pub has been excellent, but winning and extra sleep has that effect. Fulham will not be pushovers, having nabbed draws against Wolves and Liverpool before beating Brentford. But we have every right to head into this match, with a bit of a swagger.
We’ve actually got 2 matches in short succession. Following Saturday’s, we’ve got Aston Villa on Wednesday. Maggie’s will have both matches on, but I will miss the mid-week one.
Now for the big news! Saturday, Bay Area Gooners scarves will available at Maggie’s! The brand new design reflects that of our Emirates stadium banner.
The beautiful new scarves are the handiwork of Holly Hickman, who also designed our stadium banner, and the recent website revamp . A longtime Bay Area Gooner, Holly relocated to New England, but remains a vital part of our group, and we are beyond grateful for her efforts!
Supplies are limited, so find me at the pub to get your scarf!
See you Saturday!
