    The second game of the Austrian tour against Rapid Vienna was abandoned after 69 minutes due to crowd trouble concerning the home fans clashing with police. No suggestion of Arsenal fans being involved. Doubt that the game will be re-scheduled so therefore the next matches are with 1860 Munich this Friday, being shown live in England on Channel 5, and then with Roma.
    Hopefully things will go better there.

    SILVA now signed from Brazil, while Rivaldo lives Barcelona on a "free" to AC Milan. I presume the wages were too much for Wenger to consider picking him up?!
    The Uruguyan goalkeeper also now joins us on a 1 year loan from Juventus.
