Issue 232 of The Gooner published mid-way through the January 2013 transfer window and at the time of going to press, Arsenal had not made any moves in the market so we weren’t able to feature a new signing on the front cover. Instead, we pondered the type of player Arsene was looking for and came up with a composite image.

It’s been a difficult start the new calendar year on the pitch, but the issue is far from dominated by the current state of affairs at the club. We have an interview with Jens Lehmann, the legendary Invincibles keeper, who tells us which of his team-mates he go in with during his spell at the club and also reveals the story behind his comeback game at Blackpool in 2011.

There is a an article arguing why, in comparison with specifically Glenn Hoddle and Eric Cantona, Liam Brady and Dennis Bergkamp never received quite the recognition their talents deserved, whilst there is also a piece by author Ian Castle explaining how the early trauma of watching Swindon defeat Arsenal in the 1969 League Cup Final affected him through the years that followed.

We meet the man behind the Goonerholic blog and also recall how Arsenal were doing 30 years ago to get perspective on current times, plus much more, including all the usual features and columnists - the Highbury Spy, Mickey Cannon, Anger Management, Inbox, match reports, In the Away End and some humour in the shape of Rixy’s Believe It Or Not, the North Bank Times and cartoons aplenty.
