Arsenal 1967-68 - when football got serious for me

I saw my first game at Highbury in August 1967 - little did I know at the time that it was about to take over my life. Two years later I had my first season ticket and 43 years on I still have one. I sat in the same seat in West Stand at Highbury for 37 years before the move to the Emirates.


I saw the team lift the European Fairs Cup in 1970 and was at Wembley for the humiliating Carling Cup Final of 2011. In between I have experienced every other high and low that is an inescapable part of supporting Arsenal Football Club.


And now, just in case I try and erase the memories of the bad times and accidentally forget the good times too, I've written them all down. That is Arsenal: The Agony & The Ecstasy
