The Gooner is once again amongst the nominees for the Football Supporters’ Association’s Fanzine of the Year Award, and issue 280 looks at the current state of Arsenal, as well as reflecting on times past. Unai Emery is the focus of two articles, with both writers reflecting the general feeling that the head coach is not the man to take the club forward after 18 months in charge. The Granit Xhaka saga is reflected upon, and with the issue going to press before the managerial switch at Spurs, it’s ironic that there is an article pondering on Jose Mourinho coming to Arsenal, which concludes it wouldn’t be for the best. Subjects of other pieces are the club’s attacking options, VAR, Booing fans and how Liverpool have overtaken Arsenal. There is plenty of retro content too, and we welcome a new columnist to our ranks, a certain Lee Dixon, whose initial offering recalls his joining Arsenal back in 1988. Added to this, there are pieces on the 1952 FA Cup Final and two lesser known trophies the club won in 1989. There are Talking Point pieces on the Gunners’ games since the previous issue and all our usual regulars - The Spy, Mickey Cannon and Talking Reds, plus Well Played, Inbox and our ‘Up the Arse!’ humour section. Another 68 page edition packed with reading.
