If JustArsenal is not enough proof that the Gunners have fantastic support all around the world, then you only have to listen to Olivier Giroud talking about Arsenal’s early morning arrival in Vietnam on a previous pre-season tour of Asia.
Giroud will be with the squad when they fly to Singapore on July 13th, and he is very excited at the prospect: “It’s always a pleasure and a really good experience because you can see the fans are crazy all over the world,” Giroud said on the official Arsenal website. “They support the team until they die and they are fantastic.
“A proper fan has to learn all the Arsenal songs so it’s nice to hear them singing our songs and the way they are singing is even more surprising because they sing with their heart.
“I remember when we landed in Vietnam very early in the morning but there were 2,000 people who were waiting for us and cheering us on. It was a great feeling and it makes you want to produce even better performances when you get onto the pitch.”
I can bet that our Asian brothers are also waiting eagerly for Arsenal to arrive next week, so if any of you are going to be there to greet them. There has been many comments lately talking about the nationalities of our readers here at JustArsenal, so let us all share our home countries to demonstrate how far and wide the support for Arsenal stretch’s across the globe.
I for one am Irish, but was brought up in London and taken to every Arsenal home game by my father. Where are you from?
