The Gooner Gazette – Issue 1 out now

The Gooner Gazette – Issue 1 out now

Today is a big day for the Arsenal FC Blog.

I’ve talked about it quite a bit in the past couple of weeks but finally, the first issue of the blog’s monthly review eMagazine is ready for release. You’ve probably figured it out already by now, but the name of the eMag is ‘The Gooner Gazette’ and you can view the first issue here or via the black banner to your right.

The Gooner Gazette - Issue 1I ran a competition for readers of the blog to name the eMag and I’m delighted to say that one of the oldest readers, ‘Darragh’, was the winner with his name ‘The Gooner Gazette’. They’ll be a free shirt compliments of Arseshirts coming your way very shortly. Many thanks to everyone else who sent through ideas for the eMag, I’m just sorry I couldn’t give you all a shirt.

I don’t want to say much more about ‘The Gooner Gazette’ other than that I encourage you to check it out and let me know what you think. The first issue is fairly modest in size and I will be hoping to improve in future issues and a large part of that will be down to the ideas of the readers of this blog. So if you have a suggestion for an idea please let me know and I’ll see what we can do about it.

Just in case you’re wondering, there’s no ‘proper’ post today, I’ve been too busy with the eMag. I’ll be back tomorrow though. For now, that’s all I’m going to say. Enjoy!

    Micah Richards has revealed he hopes to play for his boyhood heroes Arsenal one day.He Micah Richards would be the perfect signing for Arsenal.He’s still very young.If he is going to go to another British club at any point,then Arsenal are firm favourites.
    The very fact he has let it be known that he would love to play for the Gunners,is tantamount to saying” come and get me.”
    Wenger make the call………!
    Imagine in a few years when Gallas has left retired,a Toure\Richards partnership.waooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    So true. That would be an unbelievable combination. Richards is such a great player and under Wenger I think he would go to another level. I wonder how he would make the move though…

    Spanish Fry – I’m honoured you picked my name out! I had a look at some of the shirts and the HLEB! one is awesome.

    On Micah richards – we might have to spend some $. Remember even chelsea couldn’t pry him from Man City!

    No worries Darragh, fully deserved. Loved the name. I’ll get onto Arseshirts and sort things out with you soon. As for Richards, he might be worth $ but I think he’d be worth it. Think of all the money we’ve saved over the years under Wenger!

    Congratulations on the launch of the New Gooner Magazine. It is a perfect start and we will always give you new ideas and hints so that Arsenal fans have a pleasant time when reading the magazine.

    Once again this is a step forward and we need to sensitize more fans to visit and read your blogg. I have noted that Gunnerblog, Arseblog and recently a culturedleftfoot have done alot of awareness and you can even see from the number of comments on their site increasing day by day.

    Good work Spanish Fry. You can always always count on us.
