Charybdis1966 — Man at the Match Correspondent

As a product of 1970’s Essex I was only ever going to be Arsenal or West Ham – luckily the playground bullies in my junior school were Gooners so given the “choice” it had to be Arsenal. First Arsenal memories are of the Alan Sunderland 1979 FA Cup final when my dislike of ManUre started, which was then turned into an abhorrence by the battle of Old Trafford in the 90-91 season (“You can stick your 2 points up your Arse!”) and it to this day burns brightly as a hatred of all things Red Manc.

Match day reporter for 7am where I hope to bring some of the atmosphere of the game and crowd to my reports – I will call the match as I see it at the time – but always from a Gooner’s point of view.

Hate reporting on losses but luckily that doesn’t happen often. UTA!

Cliffy a.k.a Suvidude has been following Arsenal since ESPN bestowed India with their live coverage of Barclays Premier League. A habit that started as getting high on watching Iceman DB10 play every week grew into love and passion for the philosophy, the players, Arsene and stalking all over the net for “The Arsenal”.  Dreams of making it to London and watch Arsenal play some time this decade, having saved enough money from his Analytics consultant job.

Married to a Chelsea fan, having made her promise to cheer for Arsenal except for on the Derby day…Lives a contented life with her and Yippie the pug.

Young enough to play football every day except for Sundays and Mondays, Old enough to wonder if he should walk all the way to the ground.

Always wanted to be a caricaturist, creative midfielder, policeman, writer, movie maker, travel guide, mathematician, dancer among many others. You might not find him dancing here, but may be a cartoon or two.

Grimbo

Born on the wrong side of the Thames Grimbo had no family legacy of Football team to follow so originally was pretty ‘meh’ about the game as a young lad. In his teens a chance encounter with a previously thought extinct creature from the mid Cretaceous period* that had been radioactively reanimated by crazed scientists saw him cursed with a angry beast within resulting in his transformation into a loyal servant of the red and white. He escaped the isle of Great Britain with his sanity barely intact some ten years ago and settled in the gloomy climes of the San Francisco bay area.** He now wanders the land as a mild mannered publisher and some time writer of boring nerdy physics based stuff however, beware! When angered by a bad Ref’s decision, disloyal players, or the evils of FIFA he has a tendency to turn green, lose his shit and tear everything apart with his enormously sized vitriolic outbursts of 3000 words or more before hitchhiking into oblivion again to get his supper. Commonly found lurking around the home of the Bay Area Gooners in SF he was caught and somewhat tamed by Tim the Enchanter 3 years ago. He now attempts a weekly column of dubious quality (and frequency) here on 7amkickoff.

Arsenal fan since 1980, in the forlorn hope that a team that had appeared in 4 finals in 3 years must be good. Then went 7 years supporting a team that couldn’t win Against the mighty Walsall, York, or Reading. Until dear George came back.

Had a mad fascination about why Terry Neill ever signed Peter Nicholas to sign as Liam Brady’s replacement.

Claim to fame? Quitting Rugby after losing 162-3 (a world record at the time) in Bath.

Finest Arsenal moment? Dennis Bergkamp’s goal against Newcastle.

Often told by his girlfriend ‘You and that Bloody Arsenal’ as a lament on his infatuation.

First fell in love with the Arsenal in 2001 when Wiltord won the League at Old Trafford. Have made the annual trip from my physical home in the Pacific Northwest to my spiritual home in London every year since 2006 when I saw Arsenal beat Charlton 3-0. On that day I saw three miracles: Arsenal play at Highbury; Pires, Henry and Bergkamp all play; and Alex Hleb score a goal.
