As a paid-up Spurs fan, it pains me to say it, but in terms of blogging, Arsenal have been Premier League champions for a very long time. Since the dawn of football blogging, in fact.
The quality and depth of Arsenal blogs shames those of all other clubs, including the rest of the so-called ‘big four’. Indeed, if you added up all the decent Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd blogs, I doubt even then they could match the might of the Gunners’ online output.
Consider the evidence:
That’s a mere highlights reel of Arsenal blogs (and sorry if I missed yours) – there are many, many more out there, some of them excellent, others frankly not worth the platform they’re written on.
So, how did this happen? Why do Arsenal have so many good, dedicated bloggers? Is it because they’re more self-righteous, more educated, more passionate, more contrary, more pompous, more intelligent?
I have no idea – maybe a combination of the above.
I’d genuinely love to hear your thoughts on this topic, and especially the thoughts of Arsenal bloggers…
