It’s time for the new season!
It has been my tradition for years now to create wallpapers with fixtures for each month. I enjoyed making them and people usually liked and used them. Times have changed and desktop wallpapers aren’t as popular as they used to be. I will spare you the numbers we got over last season for wallpapers.
The other day we created a Twitter poll to see if it makes sense to do monthly fixtures wallpapers this season or not. These days you can see our upcoming match in all kinds of apps, and download the fixtures to your calendar and so on, so having them on your desktop wallpaper isn’t as popular as it used to be. 56% of voters still said they’d like to download them.
[POLL] Are you (still) interested in our monthly wallpapers with Arsenal fixtures? Shall we continue making them?

So here I am – in the middle. Yes, there will be monthly fixture wallpapers available on Daily Cannon (and only Daily Cannon, from what I know, no one else does this). However, due to lack of time and switching focus to other stuff (like infographics which are way more popular and fun to make), there won’t be several different versions or as many sizes as there used to be.
There will be one version with a photo from past month and fixtures from the upcoming month, and one version with historical events. I didn’t make history version this month due to lack of time and inspiration, and well, lack of major historical events in Arsenal’s history in August.
There will be one for September, and every other month, and it will be in collaboration with one awesome Gooner who did some stunning Arsenal graphics as well. You’ll have to check at the end of August who it is.
Anywho, here are the August wallpapers. Sizes available are 2880×1800 – fits on any 16:10 aspect ration screen, 2560×1440 – fits on any 16:9 aspect ratio screen, and a tablet size that should fit on any tablet.
The photo is from our match against the MLS All-Stars. Hope you like it and download it!
