Arsenal to face Lens in pre-season

RC Lens have announced that they’ll face Arsenal in a pre-season fixture in mid-July.

On their website the Ligue Un outfit reveal they’ll play the Gunners on July 22nd at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, kick off at 8pm local time.

It may well be that this game was arranged as part of the deal that saw Lens youngsters Yassin Fortune and Jeff Reine-Adelaide join the club last summer. It was suggested at the time that a friendly was part of the negotiations, and so it appears to be the case.

Arsenal’s pre-season is full of travel, with a trip to the USA at the end of July, before friendlies against Man City and Viking FK in Scandinavia in August.

Jeff we can.

Make mine a Swiss miss

Looks like a good chance for the younger players to get a game.

Release the Jeff

MrSense

I’d like to see us play them and tap up the brilliant players of their team. We are a club looking to do sound business and its increasingly unsustainable to counter the unchecked financial doping happening in football by simply throwing our own money around.

When is the Jefferendum?

Facing Lens is always a good idea, it really ruins the photo if you don’t.

At this point I’d settle for a Salomon Kalou transfer rumor.

Anonymarse

Not sure things are that desperate yet. Some Italian bloke recons we are going to sign Lukaku.

Anonymarse

Same guy who predicted we would sign Benzema, Isco and Mkhitaryan …

Fatgooner

Memo to Arsene: Don’t let that new Swiss guy take penalties.

Paul

I don’t think he reads your memos…:-)

Who knows? Wenger may search the net for the most negative comments about himself.

You should see what they write on Online Gooner!

Does anyone?

Like Every News Seen.

Third Plebeian

Ugh. Not even the Euros are doing it for me. Three of the most boring games of the tournament today.

Fatgooner

True. The Euros have been boring shite. There’re nearly as bad as American football.

Vardy with whiskey, Szczesny with cigar

Especially Croatia vs Portugal, what a waste of time for hundreds of millions of viewers!

Coq au Vin

Hey Paul, where’s the spelling correction?

Third Plebeian

I can guarantee you that Arsenal v Lens will be 100% more exciting than these watching-paint-dry Euro games. I can’t believe I waited until the 70th minute to turn off Croatia v Portugal, which, at that point, had yet to see a shot on goal for either side.

Anonymarse

Mostly I just stick it on the TV while I’m doing something else.

Paul

Fats ‘it’s “they’re” (Thanks for the “heads up” Coq) 😉

Fatgooner

Quite right. Thanks.
