The pre-season begins in earnest tomorrow as Arsenal play their 1st exhibition matches in something called the Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup.  There’s a decent mix of senior & younger players named in the 23-man squad for tomorrow & the full list is on Arsenal.com.  Interestingly, Chamakh & Mannone will be involved in what will probably be a bit of showcasing them for possible moves elsewhere.  It will also be the 1st chance to see newly promoted Kyle Bartley & youngins such as Kristoffer Olsson, Kyle Ebecilio & Thomas Eisfeld.

The tournament is apparently 2 45-minute matches in a round robin against Southampton & RSC Anderlecht.  it should be a decent bit of competition albeit of the friendly/exhibition variety.

Arsenal.com have also released another gallery of training photos.  Which is superterrific if you’re into that sort of thing.  Several pictures of the new 1st team coaches, Neil Banfield & Steve Bould.

Come on you Gunners!

Even Gervinho’s forehead looks small in comparison to Boro Primorac
