Greetings, earthlings. I know, I know — a how-to-watch thread for a Chelsea-Arsenal match? Menno, what are you thinking?

Well, it’s the Community Shield — the unofficial opening of the Premier League season. And while as Spurs fans we want a giant sinkhole to open up at the center circle, it’s still football, and we’re still gonna watch it, right?

Yeah. Sigh.

So here are the details. Feel free to use this as a general not-the-Hoddle open thread after the match as well.
