Issue 204 of The Gooner from late March 2010 features an exclusive four page interview with club captain Cesc Fabregas in which he reveals that the Premier League is the trophy that he’d most like to get his hands on. No surprise he stayed on the pitch on Saturday then when clearly not fully fit.
Our front cover focuses on the Champions League tie against Barcelona and if both sides play as we know they can, we should be in for quite a treat. “The Beautiful Game” at it’s very best... well, as long as we win!
Due to deadlines, our last issue was unable to cover the events which took place at Stoke towards the end of February, so David Oudôt writes about the aftermath and the entirely expected media reaction, not to mention that of Tony Pulis.
Meanwhile, Simon Rose takes a trip down memory lane (also known as Avenell Road) and whilst he mourns the loss of Highbury as a stadium, he is pleased that it remains intact, at least to the naked eye.
There’s also articles on doing things the Arsenal way and how we’re not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes to good music created by Arsenal fans, plus there all the regulars - Highbury Spy, Mickey Cannon, Anger Management, readers letters, In The Away End and a welcome return of Dwight Hart-Lane.
