Good to be a gooner
It is the name Arsenal that is paramount. A person's affiliation to the name is what counts and creates within them an identity that is possibly more significant than class, ethnicity or religion. Much has been said about tribalism in football and an engaging part of this project was studying the various and unique ways people show thier affiliation. The visual association (shirts, rings, tattoos) was usually backed up with a long pedigree of support that could be recalled at a moment's notice to ensure everyone sees them as a true fan.

Football is an arena where fans are still allowed to dream. Where the seemingly impossible can happen in 90 minutes. Where the difference between glory and despair can be decided by a moment of brilliance or moment of madness. For two hours every weekend you can share the widest gamut of human emotions with strangers who comfort and celebrate with you like lifelong friends. This is where people go to experience history firsthand.
