The Gooner Goes Mega… (online that is)

Mr Layth Yousif is in the building and about to get very busy

Responsive image

Ed’s note – To push The Gooner’s presence and influence via social media (which frankly people is the future) journalist, Arsenal books author and Gooner contributor and prolific Tweeter / Instagram poster Layth Yousif is going to take a more active role to push us forward on all relevant fronts, helped out by some willing cohorts. Some of you may have already noticed we have ‘upped out game’ on Twitter. Get used to it, because there’s more to come. Over to Layth for details…

It's been an honour and a privilege to write for the Gooner Fanzine for the last few years. Like so many avid Arsenal fans the publication has always been my point of reference in airing the passionate views of genuine supporters and I am so excited in having the chance to grow the digital side. Kevin Whitcher and before him Mike Francis have done superb jobs in keeping the flag flying and I see myself very much as a custodian in attempting to share the voice of Arsenal fans in the 21st century.

To that end we are launching a weekly podcast from Piebury Corner called Gooner Podcast Extra. We have also set up GoonerFanzineTV on YouTube which will be a platform for loyal, passionate, knowledgeable Gooners everywhere. You can subscribe here.

And in case you weren’t aware, you follow us on…

    Myles Palmer's Arsenal News Review was always my go-to page, after the Online Gooner of course, then Le Grove was third. Myles has now sadly gone into retirement so am casting around for an alternative.....

    "share the voice of Arsenal fans in the 21st century" then go to the authors twitter where you'll need to "find another team" for holding an opinion about the manager and the club. Oh Dear

    That’s really good news and I wish the venture well. The Arsenal Social media sites should all be one family with plenty of space out there . But in recent times I thought Le Grove was pushing ahead in podcasts even though I’ve always found my first point of call to be the Gooner. So as a podcast addict it’s excellent you’re doing even more. Great stuff.
