@Arsenal Why, because being embarrassed by Bayern is a worldwide sideshow now?

Arsenal supporters were left dumbfounded after the club announced a pre-season friendly against their Champions League conquerors Bayern Munich.
Just seven days after the Gunners suffered a 10-2 aggregate defeat in their last-16 tie, they announced that they had arranged to face the German champions again in July.
Arsenal fans replied to the club’s official Twitter account to question the wisdom of that decision and predict another five goals going past them (as was the case in each of the two legs in their recent meetings). Here’s what some of the supporters had to say.
@Arsenal Of all teams….your having us on? Bayern?

@Arsenal The banter. Bunch of jokers. Who at Arsenal actually thought that would be a good idea. Was 10 goals against us not enough?
