Website bio: Arsenalinsider was developed, in November 2006, and its almost immediate success appeared to identify a real need for football fans across the globe.
Unlike many football blogs which are often run by one person and only give one person’s opinion, we wanted somewhere where skilled writers could have their say on their club. There are many passionate writers out there who have the writing ability but not the technical ability so we wanted to offer somewhere for them to practice their art.
