I’m James ‘Raul’ Stokes. That’s me looking pleased with myself in the picture. If you’ve clicked onto this page, you’re probably pondering to yourself, “Who on Earth is responsible for this?” I’m just a simple soul who loves the Arsenal. By now, you may even be asking yourself, “Why does he do this?”. Well… That’s actually very simple: It’s something I absolutely adore doing.
Writing has long been a passion of mine. What I may lack in correct structuring and grammatical prudence, I attempt to make up for with enthusiasm, humour and a touch of the surreal. The Armchair Gooner merges my two greatest loves, and represents my first marginally successful blog. Over time I aim to grow a readership and further exposure to the masses. Who knows… I might just become an internet sensation…
Most importantly, I’m doing this blog for you people, the delicious readers. Hopefully, you will be able to glean as much enjoyment from reading as I will from writing. Or perhaps we’ll all end up bickering and part on bad terms.
We shall have to see.
