Arsenal aren’t in action until 14 October when we face Watford away in the Premier League and we’re not sure how we’re going to survive.
Not to sound dramatic but the interlull is one of the worst things to ever happen to me.
While I’ll watch most football, and should probably be a little more patriotic, I’m sure I’m not the only Arsenal fan who would rather our players didn’t disappear on international duty at the moment.
During our last interlull, most Gooners didn’t want our players to come back. We’d just lost 4-0 away to Liverpool, the club Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was about to join, and the season was already looking like a write-off just three matches in.
However, this time we’ve managed to string some decent results together, winning six out of seven games over all competitions. The only game we’ve not won was a hugely encouraging 0-0 draw away at Chelsea. Not bad at all.
Therefore, if you’re like me and need a little extra entertainment while Arsenal aren’t playing, here are 10 things you can do.
1. Actually watch the international games…?
I know, I know. But if you’re really that football-starved, there are plenty of okay-sounding fixtures to ‘feast’ your eyes on.
Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette could feature in France’s World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus… That’ll be nice.
2. Go to the cinema
Admittedly, most films won’t last the entire interlull but the new Blade Runner 2049 move is out on 5 October. It’s got Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling in.
3. Learn how to knit
It’s getting chilly. We’re in autumn now. Apparently it takes 14 hours for a beginner to learn how to learn how to knit. You see where I’m going with this…?
It’s not been an easy season so far by any means. Why not enjoy this 24-hour long relaxing YouTube video? We’ve got 12 days until Arsenal face the Hornets so you can fit this in up to 12 times. That’s 12 times the relaxation.
5. Play Arsenal Monopoly
6. Game away the time
If you’re more into video games than board games, Forza Motorsport 7 comes out on Windows PC and Xbox One on 3 October.
FIFA 18 has also been released for all consoles.
7. See other human beings
8. Transform your life
According to this LifeHack.org article, you can transform your life in two weeks. Arsenal play against in just under that so you can probably ALMOST transfer your life in 12 days.
9. Gaze upon Arsenal calendar
The Gunners have released their 2018 calendar, so you can gaze upon Olivier Giroud’s face in all its glossy glory.
10. Hide in a dark room
Yeah, I might be doing this to be honest.
