Hooray for friendship!

Social media allows an amusing window into the thoughts of athletes, and one of the times it's most visible is when someone switches clubs. We shared Petr Čech's own tweet earlier, but here are some (other) Arsenal reactions to the deal.

Petr Cech, welcome to Arsenal FC!Delighted to have a chance to learn from one of the best GK's in the world!Petr...

Posted by Wojciech Szczesny on Monday, June 29, 2015

The only one here that I would call special attention to is young Wojciech Szczęsny, who happens to be maybe the one who stands to lose the most from Čech's arrival. It's easy to say it and harder to do it, but a welcome message that involves talking about learning from Čech makes me feel a bit better about Szczesny's ability to stay and (probably) work as a #2, for a while at least.

No matter what, though, it's always fun to see the guys react to a new signing.
