Issue 270 of The Gooner - Published Thursday 1st March 2018

The Gooner issue 270 reflects on both recent and long distant events at the club. For the modern day, we have articles on the January transfer window, Aaron Ramsey, the League Cup Final, a trip report on Ostersunds and an ‘In The Away End’ looking at Chelsea online chatrooms during the recent semi-final second leg defeat to Arsenal.

A six page feature on Arsenal meeting Spurs at Wembley concludes with an account from a Gooner who sat amongst the Tottenham fans for the recent Premier League game, along with recollections from the four previous clashes at the national stadium between 1988 and 1993. We have the concluding part of our interview with keeping legend Bob Wilson, and a reminder that the club have endured far darker times than this in the past.

Our 30 Years Of The Gooner series moves on to looking at how media coverage has changed since 1987, an article ponders whether or not the club might have been better off staying put at Highbury, whilst Season Defining Games picks out eight matches of significance between 1987 and 2017. The two-legged UEFA Cup defeat to Winterslag in 1981 is remembered, and among the usual regulars are Talking Reds, The Spy, Mickey Cannon, Well Played / Pain In The Arse, Inbox, the North Bank Times and the 91st Minute.
