2 weeks ago, I started a fresh journey in New York, and I’m buzzing to document my discovery of the big apple’s football culture on a weekly basis through the medium of words and images. I began my journey this past Saturday February 3rd, at New York City’s self-proclaimed Arsenal pub, The Blind Pig.
Arsenal flags proudly hang outside the pub, and there is an immediate atmosphere upon entering. Arsenal shirts and flags aplenty, and to my surprise an extremely diverse range of names printed on the backs of shirts, ranging from Jack Wilshere to the left back duo of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac, displaying the immediate knowledge of the fans in attendance.
The Blind Pig represented English fan culture with an American twist. Ultimately, the New York Gooners really have themselves a proper set up!
Shame we beat you at the weekend. Well not really a shame, it was bloody marvellous! ??⚽️
