Olympiacos at home on the Thursday Feb 27th.

And then City away on Sunday 1st March.
But all being well we should get a weekend off before Portsmouth game midweek as
This game will be rescheduled if Manchester City progress to the Carabao Cup Final.

We can now confirm that our Emirates FA Cup fifth-round clash against Portsmouth will take place as under:

Portsmouth v Arsenal
Emirates FA Cup fifth round
Monday, March 2
7.45pm
Fratton Park
Live on BT Sport

We are at home to Olympiacos FC on the Thursday 27th February before Pompey.

Pompey’s home match against Rochdale has been brought forward a day.
The League One fixture will now take place at Fratton Park on Friday, February 28 and kick-off at 7.45pm.

So we get an extra day off.

I swear if we get to the final they will switch it to a Monday night. 🤣🤣

There are fast trains London-Pompey but returning after the game looks tricky.

Yep we are only good enough for Matinees



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

BT Sport have dropped Harry Redknapp from their coverage of Arsenal’s FA Cup game against Portsmouth as they are concerned over his safety amongst the home fans.

Harry Redknapp managed Portsmouth 2002-2004 and 2005-2008 but in between he managed their fierce rivals, Southampton, and BT Sport are apparently worried he could be targeted by home fans who are angry about that.
