HAPPY NEW YEAR to all Just Arsenal readers, commenters and contributors

It has been another fantastic year for Just Arsenal and our ever growing community of ardent Gooners.

This has been my life’s work and I could not have made it so successful without our loyal band of dedicated Arsenal fans to continue to make our lives interesting in our shared passion.

I would also like a special mention for Patrick Junior, Ad Martin, Yash and Shenel, and all our other occasional contributors like Ken1945, Jon Fox, Konstantin, and many others too numerous to mention, who I could not have lived without to help running the site this year.

Of course the comments section is also the lifeblood of JustArsenal, and we must thank the likes of Sue (who is the voice of reason lol), Jon, Ken, TRVL, Dan Kit, Declan, etc, who (despite our differences) make all our lives more interesting….

I am now going to leave you for the day and start to begin my preparations for celebrating the end of an awful year for many people, but at least Arsenal are finally going up in the world.

So Happy New Year to you all…..

Surely 2022 must be better than 2021?


Ooops I also want to appeal to all our fanatical readers to let me know if they would like to share their opinions with guest appearances on the new JUST ARSENAL SHOW.

Dan Smith is the main man, but I would love to see JA readers send in the occasional podcast as well as your fantastic articles. You all know that your fellow readers will love to listen to your opinions….

      Hey mate, I’m really sorry you weren’t included in my praises as you are a very important member. I should have taken longer to write it…
      But hey ho, happy new year mate

      1. HH says:

        It’s understandable you can’t name everyone otherwise the list will be too long. I appreciate your reply.

    Cheers to everyone at JA who make this all possible…I know for myself, this site has been a godsent at times, especially during the pandemic when lockdowns were required and life seemed a tad bleak…for someone, like myself, who relishes any and all human interaction, I likely would have gone batsh** crazy if it weren’t for my relatively constant engagement with the cast of characters who frequent this site…of course, you’ve mentioned several of those very individuals, but I would like to add one further namesake, who wasn’t mentioned by Pat, and that’s the always well-reasoned and exceptionally clever regular contributor, Durand…notwithstanding my derisive predilections, there’s something about the way that Durand efficiently encapsulates his/her particular stance in a fraction of the time it normally takes me to do likewise, intrigues me to no end…that said, I won’t be changing my oft-times brash and longwinded approach any time soon…take care and HAPPY NEW YEARS to one and all !!!

    1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

      Pat, my sincere apologies if you felt that I was cutting your grass by mentioning another name, as I know that any list was bound to be left wanting…frankly, I’m just pleasantly surprised I made any list of your choosing, minus a “naughty” one of course, as I wouldn’t have been surprised whatsoever if I was “accidentally” edited out(lol) Cheers

    Sue is definitely the voice of reason. Lol. And she has been bossing the JA table for weeks now. And I would love to share my opinions on your new show. Happy New Year to all you JA! You made this somewhat (not so good) year exciting! Now lets paint the CITY red!
