Issue 217 of The Gooner from September 2011. The issue reflects on our dealings in the transfer market as reflected by the images on the front cover of the five signings we made right at the end of August.
We’ve done our best to ignore the result at Old Trafford, but include an open letter from Charlie Ashmore to the Board questioning their decision to refund the ticket price for Arsenal fans who attended the game.
Elsewhere in the issue, after the discontent which was voiced during the early season games, Simon Rose asks the question “To Boo or Not to Boo”, while we also start a new series dedicated to the fascinating history of places which fans pass on their way to the ground.
There’s an interview with the daddy of the Arsenal blogosphere – Arseblogger – plus Mickey Cannon, Anger Management, In The Away End and the first appearance this season of Dwight Hart-Lane who bumps into Luka Modric.
