I’ve supported Arsenal since 1979, through thick and thin, and went to my first game in December 1985 (Charlie Nicholas, Niall Quinn in a 2-0 win against Liverpool).

I started writing this blog straight after Arsenal won the FA Cup in 2003, against Southampton. A year before Arsenal went unbeaten, at a time when we were slugging it out at the very top table.

And here I am, a zillion years later, still writing about the Arsenal. A lot less than I used to (life and kids have a habit of doing that), but still going – just about.

    Hi – nice to hear you on Arsecast. I appreciate your insight. Wondering what does East Lower refer to?

    A section of the stadium I would guess, but cannot guess what is your connection to that so I wanted to ask.

    Hi Christian – it’s simply where I used to sit in the old Highbury. The name stuck!

    I’ve also supported Arsenal since 1979, bedazzled by the Alan Sunderland winner against United in the FA cup final. I travelled to the UK from Tasmania that year, worked in London for a couple of years, saw many games at Highbury, came home, been back twice since to visit. Took my son to a match at the Emirates in Dec 2008 (1/0 v Portsmouth), now he too is a mad Gunner fan. I heard your bit on the Arsecast last night, agreed with every word. I just can’t wait for Wenger to go.
