Introduction I've been an avid Gooner since 1971, when I watched my first delayed telecast of an FA Cup Final and saw my namesake playing Right Back in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool. From that moment I was hooked. Since then I've ridden all the highs and lows of supporting a football team from afar. In the early 80’s I was lucky enough to visit Highbury twice, the first in March 1981, watching the Gunners defeat Liverpool 1-0 and the second in May 1984, seeing a young Gary Lineker playing for Leicester City and losing 2-1. Two weeks later I went to Watford and saw us lose 2-1 in the last game of that season. In 1984 he was also lucky enough to see Arsenal play a Testimonial Game at The Valley against Charlton Athletic where George Best played the whole 90 minutes for Charlton as a guest player. 24 years later, In April 2008, I visited Arsenal to organise the Club component of the Tour Package and while there I watched Arsenal defeat Everton 1-0 in the last home game of the 2007-2008 Season. I'm now looking forward to taking groups of Australian Arsenal Supporters to “The Emirates” to cheer on the Gunners for themselves.
