Bay Area Gooners in the news!

Fantastic crowd at Maggie McGarry’s Irish Pub for Arsenal’s first match of the season. Sadly, the 0-0 draw at Newcastle did not exactly wash away any doubts leftover from the end of last season.

Still, it was great to see a lot of new faces along with those more familiar Gooners, and if this turnout was any indication, the pub should be rocking this season.

We’ve got some brilliant new t-shirts for sale as well as a limited number of Bay Area Gooner scarves (pictured below). The $30 shirt & scarf combo has been extended through this weekend’s match against Liverpool FC.

 

 

 

 

 

Our band of merry Gooners has featured in two recent articles on the world-wide interwebs.  The first appeared here in SFGate’s The Beautiful Blog written by Alan Black, author of the hilarious Kick The Balls.

This was followed by a little international coverage from across the pond, as our fellow Gooners at Arsenal-Talk took time to profile us here.

I’m hoping to restart a feature I’ve previously run on this blog called Meet The Gooners, in which we get to know better the folks we rub shoulders with at Maggie’s.  I’m particularly interested in Gooners who turn up regularly. If you have any interest in being interviewed, drop me an email.

See you at the pub!

Cheers, Mark
