In early 2007 the Arsenal FC Blog was born.
In the five following years the blog has been nurtured with care and compassion, subsequently congregating a community of readers who have enjoyed its positivity and rationality while the majority of the online football world descends into madness.
Unfortunately, last season the Arsenal FC Blog and its faithful community was left feeling abused and neglected. It had little to do with the football on display. Nor did it have to do with Robin van Persie.
Inconsistent editorial and posting from a burnt-out, uninspired leader left a lot of readers feeling left out, hurt and confused.
Some turned to drugs to fill the void. Others turned different Arsenal blogs. But one cannot simply be content with other Arsenal blogs once they’ve read the Arsenal FC Blog. (Unless they’re Arseblog or Arsenal Column, damn those blogs are good.)
While the community stumbled around in a haze, wondering where it had all gone wrong, the AFCB’s leader sat in his moderately-sized room, pondering a way to turn it all around.
So without further ado we bring you the new Arsenal FC Blog.
An Arsenal blog where feature articles, match reports and black and white photos are king. A place where love for Arsenal, positivity towards the game of football and respect for each other are demanded.
A place where we support the four scamps in the photo at the top of the page — and the rest of their rascally teammates — simply because they wear the famous purple and black of the Arsenal. It’s Arsenal, with love.
Welcome back and thanks for sticking with us.
