Arsenal take on Cologne on Sunday 12th August, 2012, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ESPN.
It’d be interesting to know whether this friendly was arranged as part of the Lukas Podolski transfer, or if it was sorted out months ago, but either way the German international will go back to his first club before he plays a competitive match for the Gunners. Arsene Wenger has been spending a bit this summer, and it’ll be interesting to see also if that effects the decision of Robin Van Persie on his future.
Personally I doubt it, as the players to come in aren’t really on the same level as RVP, but tonight could be a chance for the new arrivals to prove their potential worth.
