31 May 2010 | Arsenal News, Blog | 24 Comments|
Arsène Wenger will take his Arsenal team on their traditional pre-season visit to Austria, it has been confirmed.
The Gunners, who have been regular guests in Austria for almost 9 years now, will stay at a Bad Waltersdorf-based 5-star hotel from 19th to 27th July this summer.
Here is a list of Arsenal’s confirmed pre-season friendlies so far:
17th July – Barnet (A)
19th-27th July – (Austria Tour – A)
31 July – AC Milan (Emirates Cup – H)
01 August – Celtic (Emirates Cup – H)
07 August – Legia Warsaw (A)
It’s going to be a funny tour this year – Look at the dates, it is right after the world cup.
I went to see the game in Stuttgart a couple of years ago and there wasn’t that much of the full squad there. This year I would expect it to be even less.
hopefully with a new GK, CB, Joe Cole and probably Gourcuff!!!
The Gunners are the best club though we have not won anything major for five years, We have the best stadium which Brazil have made it their home for international friendlies, we have the best manager in our/club history, we always contest for league honors every season on a less than 10 million budget even teams like Spurs, Aston Villa, Man City, and Liverpool spend 10 times or more but we always above them except for Liverschool who were above us last season. We the best, against all the odds. The media is trying to test us, got the press trying to screw us but we always stand against their odds. I don’t why they hate Arsenal that much, now we have Barcelona trying to get every piece of us, they were lucky to have faced the best starting line up, imagine if they had faced this line up then:
Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Clichy
Arshavin Van persi
We hope that Arsene Wenger will buy players for the coming season.We should not count on the present players.
CB – Laurent Koscielny
GK – ?
ST – Chamak
AM – Cole
7-8 million euros in total + keeper cost
If we can hold on to cesc great if not then buy Gourcuff and lets start winning trophies
GK – Fabianski and Szchesny (loan)
CB – Gallas, Sendros, Silvestre
CM – Cesc (upto Cesc)
ST – Eduardo (sell)
It is fucking ridicilous he is going to Austria every fucking year,playing shit teams on the way.
Why can’t we go to America or Asia and make some money? Doesn’t seem to bother Chelsea or Man U during the season
@Danish Gooner: It’s ridiculous he’s our manager. He PROMISED signings before the WC but it won’t be any. He’s a cheapskate. Arsenal has become a club where the shareholders make profit every year. Since Wenger came we have invested 340 mil euros in the transfer market and we have sold players worth 330, so thats just -10 milion net on transfers, which is ridiculous. Every year since Emirates we have 30 million pound after tax profit which goes to our board i assume.
keep calm!! He will do something and he didnt lie cause we got Chamakh and everybody knew it will be Chamakh before world cup. And sell Fabregas if he wants out!!!
I’d just like to say that everything is fucking ridiculous
@arsenal4ever: yeah he didn’t lie cause he knew in January Chamakh was coming. The worst thing of all is that he CERTAINLY bid for Kosczielny and Diakhate, but if he misses on them he’ll say I believe in my players, we don’t need reinforcements, they will step up this season, just like he did when he missed on Alonso, Melo and Inler so now we have Denilson, stupid cunt playing the most important position in the team. He wouldn’t score 30 points at an IQ test if someone helped him to do so.
The profit does not go to the board, its reinvested in the business. The shareholders receive no dividend, but benefit by capital apreciation of the value of their shares.
You want a short term fix, go an support Chelsea or Man City. Arsenal is a properly run business and is investing for the future.
I said it last year Wengers time is up but the board wont sack him!!! But preassure is increasing so I think there will be some major changes!!! Hopefully of course!! Even Gazidis said there is a lot of money to spend.
apparently we got already Hangeland it was said on several blogs who has reliable sources. Not sure if it is true but I think HAngeland and TAylor are a very good possibility!!!!
i thort the arsenal board discussed that they were losing so much money on playing in these shit tournaments. now it seems they gona continue and play in austria again! we need to go to the big tournaments in USA or japan like the other big teams! come on arsenal board get ur act together!!!
what i’d like:
diaby..hs consistency would far better suit hibernians
what i know:
2 great international CBs
winger..not just any, Eden Hazard
a new trophy cabinet 4 cl, epl, fa, emirates cup et al.
I would be happy with one of Hangeland, Kjaer, Subotic at DC, Gourcouff if Fabregas leaves and Van der Wiel, Hazard, Azpilicueta to back-up. Szczesny as our number 1 of course
21th of July: Arsenal vs. Sturm Graz (in Graz)
hangeland has no speed, get Cahil to partner TV5, Hart, Taylor 4 back up… Wenger says he dont look at players passports but he should coz wot a english player lacks in ability he makes up for in spirit… And we need spirit down the spine
i read that rosicky in part exchange for hazard… And almunia in part exchange 4 lloris… Any truth?
