Saturday 15th July
As the new season fast approaches, the mighty Gunners will face their sternest test in their pre-season build up to date.
Ok, so it's only the first game, but I haven't written one of these for a while and I felt the need to be a bit over dramatic.
This afternoon we take our annual trip to Underhill, only this time with a few less first teamers. Usually we play a fairly strong team in the first half with a few of the younger lads getting the opportunity to stretch their legs in the second, but with the World cup only just finished, coupled with the fact that the Arsenal had more players in attendance than any other club then the squad is quite diminished due to the world cuppers being on their jollies.
New boys Vincent van der Berg & Joe O`Cearuill look set to make their debuts, while Jeremie Aliadiere makes his return to the squad after loans spells at Celtic, West Ham & Wolves.
Squad to face Barnet:-
Vincent van den Berg
"Basically it will be the strongest squad I can name from the players who weren`t involved in the World Cup.'
Loads of young and exciting players to have a butchers at.
Hleb has had a nice long rest during the summer and is a player I fully expect to have a massive impact on the Premiership next season. Also, if memory serves me correctly, Hleb scored his first ever goal for Arsenal within the first few minutes of this fixture last season.
Sorry Barnet fans, I don't know much about anything on the subject of your club.
