West Ham vs. Arsenal: Match Thread and TV

purty - Shaun Botterill

It's business as usual for Arsenal as the stupid busy festive season continues.

League form, last six matches: ARS WWWDLD | WHU LWLLDL
TV: NBCSN, I think, they've been changing a lot in the last couple days. Check here for latest info.

I trust everybody opened their presents, didn't shoot their eyes out with their new BB guns, and otherwise had a lovely and festive Christmas/Whatever Day You Choose To Celebrate. I did, because I got these:


It's back to more or less business as usual now - no match preview, sadly, but here's a brand new empty match thread for you to fill up with match-thready goodness.

Arsenal, of course, are coming off a draw against Chelsea on Monday, which was disappointing mostly because of Mike Dean. They emerged unscathed, though, and will look to get back to winning ways (and the top of the table) against a West Ham team that has only scored 14 goals all season and sits one skinny, tenuous point away from the dreaded relegation zone. I mean, look, we all know they'll end up there anyway, right? Why not hasten the process with three points today? That'd be the best Christmas...er, Boxing Day present ever.

Be mad that you didn't win Monday, Arsenal, and turn that rage on West Ham. I believe "hiding" is the phrase I'm looking for here.
