Since we love a Friday announcement, Arsenal chose today to confirm the signing of Rob Holding. Oh yeah, and we played RC Lens.

The main news on Friday was that we signed Bolton Wanderers defender, Rob Holding. The 20-year-old has been given the #16 shirt – Ramsey’s old one and modeled his new kit with pride.

In other news, Rosicky is apparently recovering from his hamstring injury in London; Gazidis made us all nervous with some comments about scouting talent in the French second division and David Seaman shocked us with the news that he’s no spring chicken.

Meanwhile, gossip surrounding Lacazette to Arsenal started up again as apparently he’s told Lyon he wants to leave; Spurs apparently rejected a bid from us for their flop of a striker; we laughed at reports that Alexis is ‘urging’ Wenger to buy Turan; Morata is looking cosy at Real Madrid and City have unsettled Hector.

We also played our first pre-season match against RC Lens over in France, fielding a combination of senior and youth players. We drew 1-1.
