Is it a friendly? Is it a trophy? Naturally, the answer depends on whether we win.
Arsenal's final preseason match comes to us this Sunday. Pep Guardiola's band of joyless transfer fees will be across the pitch. Yes, that's right: Manchester City once again stand in our way, this time of a 17th Community Shield and first since 2020. Live from Wembley, it's the traditional curtain-raiser to the English football season.
The Gunners earned their invite by virtue of finishing second behind City in the Premier League after the latter knocked off the other guys from Manchester in the FA Cup final on their way to a Treble so boring even George Graham yawned. A week away from the start of Arsenal's 104th consecutive year in England's top flight, the Citizens present a great test as transfer speculation continues to swirl ahead of the new season.
Let's start the season off right.
