Following Arsenal from Australia is a unique experience.
It means a midnight kick-off for the weekend game and a 4.30am starts for midweek one. It means sneaking away from your friends birthday party to watch them at the pub. It means going to the work bleary-eyed and hungover after seeing them throw away another shot at the title.
It also means sharing brilliant nights out with other die-hard Gooners who know exactly how much you have sacrificed for the cause.
Over the next three games against United, Chelsea and Liverpool, Panda Bear and I will be bringing you a fan’s perspective of following the Arsenal from our home in Brisbane, Australia.
We will have a good mate of ours (a Manchester City fan, bless him!) filming these escapades as we watch all three games from the Pig ‘N’ Whistle Riverside pub. So if you’re an Arsenal fan living or staying in Brisbane then be sure to get down to The Pig tonight, next Sunday and the following Thursday to share in what should be a really good project.
I can’t tell you just yet how it will pan out. What sort of footage we will end up with I just don’t know. But I can assure you that it will be good fun.
I’ll be editing the footage into a short web documentary which will go online as soon as possible after the Liverpool game. I’ve never done any filming or editing before and this is basically a practice before my big Football Nomad trip, so I’ll be just as interested as you as to how it turns out.
