Hello, everybody. I'm a Portuguese Arsenal fan, and I decided to look for a Forum where I could closely follow news and opinions on the Club.

The Club I support with all my heart is Sporting Clube de Portugal, a Club Arsenal has faced twice (four games). I had the chance to watch the home game against Arsenal in 2018/2019, for the Europa League Group Stage, which Arsenal won 0-1 with a goal by Welbeck, if my memory doesn't fail me.

Arsenal F.C. is the only Club I feel something for besides Sporting C.P. I've supported Arsenal ever since I remember. I'm only 22 (born in 1998), and my first vivid Arsenal memory is the Champions League run in 05/06, which could have ended in glory if not for that infamous red card Lehmann got.

English is not my main language, but I think I'm not that bad at it. I will definitely not be the most wise member of this forum, but I look forward to learn more about Arsenal, and to catch up with the opinions of the supporters who have the chance to live the Club more closely.

Best regards to all the Gunners. I hope my arrival will work as a lucky charm for the upcoming clash against Olympiacos, and the North London Derby on Sunday.

COYG!

Welcome!

I want Ruben Amorim at Arsenal so badly. Do you think he could do well or is it too early for him?

Thanks! 👍

I don't think he would be ready for a challenge like managing a team that wants to figure in the top-4 in such a big league.

Portuguese footbal has a lot of particularities that I could ramble on forever. To put it simple, he's doing very well in the league, but the National Cup and the Europa League performances were poor. I don't think he'll be able to achieve the same level of success next season, with Champions League football week in, week out.

He may have a bright future, but I think it's way too soon for a challenge like Arsenal. Even at Sporting, I think it would be nice for him to prove he's not a one season wonder. :)

Hey everyone,

Just joined the forum today. I'm from st Louis, Missouri USA. Began following Arsenal my freshman year of high school, around 1994. Premier League game of the week was shown on cable right around the time I got home from practice and have been supporting since...having gotten much more involved last 5 years or so. It wasn't hard to fall in love with that crew including Bergkamp, Petitte, Kanu, Anelka, etc.

Have coached both my sons in soccer/football. BTW, is it acceptable for us Yanks to say soccer or will I be killed? I'm ok either way, having watched the Premier League now for so long I call it football often as I do soccer.

I have a goal to take my family to north London in 3-5 years to visit the Emirates for a game and hopefully find a local training session for my son who is very good and loves the game. We can get into that more later!

Glad to be aboard and come on you Gunners what a ****ing win yesterday. Let's go.

Totally missed this thread... So why not give it a try?

Swedish, 40+ and a United-fan since the mid 80's...

So why did I sign up for this forum when I don't support Arsenal? Well, I usually check around the oppo forums for opinions and thoughts. I thought you guys seemed to be quite reasonable and not as deluded as some (Liverpool) other forums... So I made an account to be able to interact whenever I might feel the need to do just that.
