About

Started in 2008 [as LadyArse] Daily Cannon is now a collection of writers which long-ago outgrew the original site name. It is run by Lee Hurley [contact here].

About the writers:

Lee Hurley has been a writer for over 18 years and established LadyArse.com, DailyCannon’s former inception, in 2008. Based in Belfast, Lee travels to London as often as possible to watch Arsenal. He has been an Arsenal supporter since 1987 and writes occasionally for the Mirror, Metro and Gooner Fanzine amongst others. Find him on Twitter @DailyCannon or @HLeeHurley.

Stephen Bradley is a Gooner and below-average blogger [his words] who writes what he thinks, but sometimes doesn’t think as he writes. Very occasionally makes a sensible point though, so watch out for that. Can be found on Twitter rambling away under the username @bradley08.

Paul Williams  is a third generation Gooner, obsessed with Arsenal since the 80’s. He’s been writing about that obsession and, ever so occasionally, the team since 2004 in a variety of places, but have found a natural home here. As you will find out if you stick around long enough, he’s a huge fan of Santi Cazorla. Paul is also extremely fond of cheese, Marmite, Pipers Salt n’ Vinegar crisps, Pilsner Urquell, vodka tonics and absinthe and also hopelessly obsessed with Depeche Mode.

Sylvain Jamet has been an Arsenal Ladies fans since the 2004/05 season, has travelled to Japan, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Sweden, and Iceland to watch them. A ladies season ticket holder since they first went on sale in 2006/07, he is a regular at Borehamwood standing behind one of the goals.

Helen Trantum is a season ticket holder with a desperate addiction to both chocolate and the Arsenal. Since making the fatal mistake of living with a Tottnumb ST holder, she finds solace by writing for Daily Cannon and pottering about on Twitter. It’s really just a question of what kills her first!

Nia Griffiths is a twenty-something writer living in North London. Likes caffeine, food that’s bad for her and Arsenal. Dislikes avocados, rudeness and Arsenal.

Andi Foster has supported Arsenal for as long as he can remember and also love films, music, TV, comics and time spent in the public beverage retail unit. He’s married and a Christian (but one of the good ones – his words). He proposed to his now-wife with fridge magnets. She said no. And yes he still savours THAT Wiltord goal.

Lewis Ambrose is an Arsenal silver member. A fan since birth and particularly fond of tactics since developing a love of German football, he doesn’t shy away from sharing his opinion. Ramblings and rants can be found at @LA1886.

Zak Burns is a student and season ticket holder now based in New York. A big fan of learning the stats behind football, Zak’s posts will try and look at the data behind Arsenal’s game while sometimes stumbling into opinion pieces. Can be found on Twitter at @zakburns.

Sean Ferguson has been an Arsenal supporter for over 25 years who now lives in the South West. Red member who tries to attend as many home games as possible with the odd away trip here and there. Sean’s posts will generally be just whatever Arsenal related nonsense has been running through his head that week!

Anita Sambol is a twenty-something Gooner from Croatia who creates wallpapers for Gooners from all over the world, tweets too much, mostly about Arsenal and food, and dates a United fan. She likes Scandinavian novels, British music, Italian food and certain French manager. She can be found on Twitter @Arsenalofka. The wallpaper archive can be found here.

Mark J Fine has followed Division One and Premier League Football via radio in the US for the past 30+ years. He became a dedicated Arsenal supporter eight years ago after finally having it regularly available on television (a perfect diversion for his weekend exercise routine). He has many hobbies including running/exercise, gaming, and guitar-playing, and even manages a few tweets about those things (between those about Arsenal) on Twitter at @markjfine.

Matthew Wade or @lomekian on Twitter. Slightly unhealthy fascination with Arsenal full-backs since watching Lee Dixon’s debut from the East Stand Lower, he’s a Football Manager and tactical geek, who has won the quadruple on every version since 1992, and before that on the Kevin Toms Classic in the 1980s. Also a Middlesex Cricket Club and Detroit Red Wings Fan. Now a professional actor and voice-over artist, but formerly an employment advisor and project manager. Read his part time blog ‘Edge of the Area’ here or see his actor’s website.

Charlotte Marshall, Charley, or Charlotte when she is in trouble, is an Arsenal Season Ticket holder who has a slight obsession with diminutive midfielders and names her cars after Arsenal players (the first was Freddie, the current is Theo). A compulsive worrier who panicked that we would lose the FA Cup final because she hadn’t painted her nails the usual shade of red, outside of Arsenal she’s often found running, or moaning about running. This is to offset her obsession with red wine. Can be found on Twitter @Charley2385
