EPL Fixture Day
I’ve been waiting for this day for a while now. This morning, the 2011-2012 EPL season fixtures were announced, giving me my first glimpse of what matches I might be able to attend at the Emirates next spring. Here’s my current preference list:
1) Tottenham OR Newcastle (2/25 OR 3/10)
2) Blackburn (2/4)
3) Aston Villa (3/24)
4) Man City (4/7)
5) Wigan (4/14)
6) Norwich (5/5)
I’m pretty excited. For some reason, having these dates makes my trip abroad seem much nearer. As for Arsenal’s schedule in general, it looks like they’re off to a challenging start, but I think this might be a good thing.
I ran one-time shooting drills yesterday for about two hours with my friend Aaron. I’m feeling good, particularly about my left-foot progress. In particular, I managed a wicked left-footed volley into the upper-90 that made me feel a bit more confident with my left, and things just kept going well from there.
