The advent and rise of social media has it’s ups and downs....
In a galaxy not so far away and in a not so long time ago, a bunch of rabid American Arsenal fans had a place to cheer, jeer, rant and rave about their favourite EPL team. However, times and attitudes changed and those very rabid (and opinionated) fans were asked to find a new home to cheer, jeer, rant, and rave about their team. Which kind of hatched this brain child of mine. .
The original purpose of You Are My Arsenal, was to be a site for the fans and by the fans. The fans (that’s you) are active contributors to the knowledgable conversation going on within the pages of YouAreMyArsenal.com. The writers (that’s us) want our readers to never shy away from any way they feel and that is why all opinons are respected here (unless you are a Tottenham fan). No topic is off limits – so long as it follows some sense decency and decorum.
We will not be censors and you are reminded that if something seems out of line to you to ignore it. We will however, remove anything that is flagrantly off-colour, racist or demeaning in an attempt to be hurtful. All we ask is that there are readers of varying ages, sex, and ages and regardless they matter as much as you.
YouAreMyArsenal.com recently celebrated its first anniversary (okay it was back in the summer but who’s counting). We never expected the response we’ve gotten. What went out as a means to hold a community together is now a well read and we hope well respected blog. We will aim to keep hold of our principles (yes we have them) and always make the fan and reader our first priority.

Enjoy – and write!!
About Da Admin Gooner
In real life Da Admin Gooner is Michael Price, a seasoned pharmaceutical marketing professional. However, that is not as important as he is absolutely mad about Arsenal. You’re probably asking how a yank (a Maltese yank at that) came to discover Arsenal. Well there was this time in band camp, okay actually the Navy, when I was splitting time between London and Naples, It. I was in London and was asked by someone from the Royal Navy if I wanted to take a trip up to Liverpool to see what was going to be a “cracking football” match.
The year was 1989. And that trip changed my view on “football” forever more. I saw something that at the time wasn’t really evident what I saw. I just knew it was special. Since then, I have been part of the Red and White army and am damn proud of it.
Currently Michael is spends his time commuting to his job in New York from his suburban Philadelphia, PA home.. He splits his time between that and working on his design and video editing chops and reading the comments of the YAMA faithful.
