UK ADDRESSES ONLY – Postage included in price

The Gooner issue 278 welcomes the 2019-20 season. There are articles on Nicholas Pepe, Sokratis, Laurent Koscielny’s departure, the role of young home-grown players going forward, the prospect of a European Super League and celebrity fans. We recall the conclusion of the previous campaign, including trip reports from the matches in Naples, Valencia and Baku, plus a piece trying to make sense of the Denis Suarez loan. Nostalgia is The Gooner’s forte, and in this issue we have the start of three new series – Best v Favourite in a different position each edition (Goalkeepers to start), looking back at past Youth teams to see what became of the players and matches the writer wishes he’s not been at (Wish I Wasn’t Here!). There are also one off articles on Arsenal’s Scrappiest Goals, the marathon 1979 FA Cup run, following Arsenal away in the days of football specials (that’s trains for you younger fans), and great Gunners centre backs. Regulars include columnists The Spy, Mickey Cannon and Talking Reds, plus Well Played, Inbox and our ‘Up the Arse!’ humour section to give you a total of 68 pages of solid Arsenal reading.
