Austria 2010 An excerpt from today's AGM "He (Arsene Wenger) ruled out pre-season tours outside Europe. Every other year there is a European Championship or a World Cup, he said, and it was critical that the team was prepared for the Champions League play-off round if the club needed to play in that. He also felt it was wrong to tour without the club’s international players which it would in years when there were big international tournaments. This appears to rule out tours to Asia or North America in the near future. Clubs that undertook such tours spent time travelling and not training he said. He preferred the solution of the Emirates Cup at home.
