The Emirates Stadium.

My first blog post and I have no idea what to write about. But then, it hit me – what better way to start a blog than with something I’m passionate about?

So here are a few shots from my first game at The Emirates Stadium on the 24th May 2015. One of the best days of my life!

Keep in mind though, that being an Arsenal supporter meant my first match could either go horribly wrong, or great! Thankfully, it was the latter.

FT: Arsenal 4-1 West Brom

“Arsenal is in my blood as well as my heart. I will always, always, always remember you guys. I said I was going to be a Gooner for life and I did not lie because when you are a Gooner, you will always be a Gooner. This club is in my heart and will remain in my heart forever.” – Thierry Henry

Football is an art, like dancing is an art – but only when it’s well done does it become an art. – Arsene Wenger

It can’t get any cuter than this!

Below is a picture of my signed Arsenal jersey from the 2014/2015 season. But first, a quote from the legend, King Henry.

“That is something that I always want to do when I arrive somewhere, is to know about the culture, the country and about the club, to make sure I know what it takes to wear the jersey.”
