Hello fellow Arsenal fans, I wanted to introduce myself since I joined the writing team here on Vital Arsenal. Many of you already know me as Gunnerkid107 though. I have been writing match previews for the site since the beginning of the preseason this year, and I will continue to do so.
I was born in London eighteen years ago, but my family moved across the pond to the United States when I was just one. My grandfather was a huge Arsenal fan and when I was young he would tell me many stories about the Arsenal, and eventually he had me hooked. I have played youth football all my life, and once I was lucky enough to play an Arsenal youth team that came over to play in a tournament. My first time to attend an Arsenal game came in January, 2006, and what a memorable game it was. Arsenal played Middlesbrough at Highbury and ran out 7-0 victors with Henry scoring a hat trick. More recently, I attended the Emirates Cup with my family. Last year I considered moving back to England to study meteorology at the University of Reading, but I opted instead to stay in the States at the University of Oklahoma because they have one of the best meteorology programs in the world. I intend to move back to the UK when I am finished with my studies to work at the Met Office.
That`s just a little about me. I feel privileged to be on the writing staff for this wonderful site, and I hope you all enjoy my pieces.
