Over at they have published details of Arsenal’s pre-season fixtures. As usual, they are playing some matches in Austria, facing up to Weiz on the 20th of July, Ritzing on the 24th of July, and FC Utrecht on the 26th of July.

This is followed by the Amsterdam tournament, which will see Arsenal face Ajax and Porto on the 29th and 31st of July respectively. Then it’s back to business as usual, with the Community Shield against Chelsea in the Cardiff Stadium on the 7th of August.

Thankfully, this means that there’s only seven weeks until Arsenal get back in action 🙂 Hopefully these pre-season matches will allow us to get a feel for any new signings that Arsene will make during the transfer window. While he has indicated that he is not planning on spending big, if the right person comes along, then he’s prepared to dip into the kitty to get them. Myles Palmer thinks Robinho might be coming to Arsenal, but no doubt Arsene will find some gems at knock-down prices.
