I have met Gooners in plenty after coming to Malaysia through the official fan circle and otherwise. But when you meet a gooner otherwise it is a special feeling. You praise Le boss, you disucss Henry’s departure, you ponder on the maturing of Fabregas, the disappointment of a loss or a draw…it is endless.
But once in a while you also see people wearing a jersey and walking past you in the street and you feel nice to see a fellow gooner. India is not as football-mad as say any country in South East Asia, but there are really some strong supporters for the top 4 clubs in England.
This photo was taken by my girlfriend Jasmita in Mumbai, India, when she was out on work. This young gooner was kicking a football in his garage and later posed for this photograph.
Nice to see youngsters taking a liking to the Gunners…keep it up
