Welcome to Suburban Gooners

This Arsenal blog that you’re reading was set up in 2011 by Chris Howard (aka bendtnersbettercousin, aka SuburbanGoonerChris), a hardcore Arsenal fan and season ticket holder in Block 5. Chris’s wife had had enough of his obsessive comments and discussions about all things Arsenal and didn’t want to hear about it for 20 out of the 24 hours in a day.

So, Suburban Gooners was born. The blog was created for Arsenal fans, by fellow Gooners, to revel in the highs, drown sorrows in the lows and shrug shoulders (in the style of our Gallic Manager) at the middles.

Chris was soon joined by two friends, Steve Othen (aka oaf12, aka Gooner oaf) and Ben Leeder (aka Ben Leeder, aka Ben Leeder – how imaginative), who both share his love for The Arsenal.

We like to think of ourselves as amiable chaps, so if anybody does ever feel like coming to see us before match days and maybe sharing a beverage or two at one of a few of the local booze halls then please feel free to give us a shout.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling – we do enough of that on the blog!
