Post by gooner.ed »

can someone compile a list of arsenal's pre-season matches please. no need for the 'second XI' ones, but as far as i am aware we are playing germany in cologne, someone in nigeria, 2 or 3 matches in the far east (one v man city in beijing) and a 3 team 45 minute match thing at southampton. dates? kick off times? oppo confirmed? any other friendlies?

if there is a url link to all this info, then just give me that - can't find it on arsenal.con anyway

"A leading African national team" will be the opposition for the Nigeria game - apparently Ghana, Zambia, South Africa, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Egypt have all been mooted

So we are hitting Africa, Europe and Asia in our pre-season? Nothing better than starting a season with half the team jet-lagged and/or coming down with Maleria, huh? But still, once we sell a few extra Nike jerseys, all is good! :barscarf:

This has concerned me for a while, we're clocking up serious miles just a few weeks before the start of the season. Spells disaster for me. I also thought they said they were gonna do these far east tours in WC/Euro years? Still, money talks I guess...

Those Inuits really have a lot of respect for the Arsenal brand. Gazidis says they know even more about the club than us in London!

Saturday August 4th, away at Chesham.

I wonder if RVP will get a run out? :?



PREMIER League giants Arsenal will visit Chesham United for a pre-season friendly, the Generals have confirmed.

The Arsenal team is likely to be made up of youngsters, but their visit to The Meadow is likely to give Chesham a big cash boost from a bumper crowd.

The match will take place on Saturday August 4 and season ticket holders will be able to get in for free.

No home games then? Usually every club plays at least 1 home pre-season friendly and with the Emirates Cup getting cancelled they should have arranged one by now :evil:
