The Gooner is the best selling independent Arsenal fanzine which, since its launch in 1987, has aimed to provide a platform where the complete spectrum of Gunners supporters’ views can be expressed. There is no editorial line in terms of what we will publish, running very much an open house policy. For this reason, it is the natural home for many of the debates and counter views that go hand in hand with being a Gooner in modern times.

The Gooner publishes regularly throughout the football season, so a 12 month subscription will typically deliver 8 issues, each of which is packed with at least 48 full colour pages of contributions from a wide cross section of the Arsenal fan base providing intelligent, passionate and often humorous analysis of the goings-on at Arsenal FC, both on and off the pitch, as well as plenty of reflective articles which provide many memories from our clubs illustrious history.

In addition, all subscribers have access to our full catalogue of digital back issues which dates back to the start of the 2010/11 season.

The FREE trial issue from March 2013 features Carl “Corporal” Jenkinson on the front cover and the Talking Reds editorial puts forward the view that we need more players like him who have a deep-rooted bond with the club and who play with the pride and passion we as fans want to see.

On a similar theme, there’s an interview with Chris “Chalky” Whyte, Arsenal centre-back (and very occasional striker) from the early 80s, who grew up just down the road from Highbury and used to stand on the North Bank as a boy. He talks about his slightly unusual career path, who was responsible for his positional switch and why he had his toes broken deliberately one summer!

Elsewhere, there’s an article by Bernard Dowling questioning whether Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis has delivered on the promises he has made during his four year tenure whilst earning in excess of £8m and there’s also a piece which highlights some of the unsung Arsenal heroes from the last 40 years including Eddie Kelly, David Price and Sylvain Wiltord.

All this plus much more including all the usual features and columnists – Highbury Spy, Mickey Cannon, Anger Management, Inbox, match reports, In the Away End and another episode with Dwight Hart-Lane who this time struggles to get to grips with social media.

The Gooner issue 283 is a ‘Behind Closed Doors’ edition covering the ‘new normal’ of matches being played without fans present. There is a six page interview with Robert Pires that features his own experience of the lockdown as well as reflecting on Arsenal today and remembering his own six years at the club. There is also an interview with the controversial former centre-back Sebastien Squllaci, whose stay at the club was far less successful. There are Talking Point features on all the recent games, and a plethora of retro articles. These include the year that Arsenal won four times at White Hart Lane, the club’s attempt to rebuild after World War II broke up the team that had been dominating the 1930s, and a look back at the 1970 Fairs Cup Final some 50 years on. Arsenal’s best attacking players of recent times are compared, and there is the concluding part of a tribute to former captain Frank McLintock, who turned 80 earlier this season. And as ever, our usual regulars are present – Talking Reds, The Spy, Mickey Cannon, Well Played, Inbox and the ‘Up the Arse!’ humour section. Plenty of reading to keep you going through a condensed close season until we return again for the next campaign, having succeeded in our campaign to raise enough advance subscribers to ensure we can print ‘The Gooner’ for another year.
