I am lucky to be a part of an awesome bunch of Arsenal supporters, who sleep, breath and drink Arsenal. An exceptionally fanatic fan club, known as Bangalore Gunners.
If their Facebook page is anything to go by, Bangalore has an estimated base of about 21,000 Arsenal fans. They organize screenings almost every weekend for Arsenal games.
I managed to get a break from my work, and make a trip down to Bangalore, to watch the game with the gang at Dugout, a sports pub. To add to the atmosphere, there were about 60-70 fans from the Chelsea Bangalore Fans Club who had descended down.
^^That’s me! 😛
If you are wondering who the extremely pumped up guy in last season’s away kit is, let me introduce you to Sachin, the ‘self-proclaimed’ hooligan of Bangalore Gunners. Boy, he does have loads of chants up his sleeve! 😀
Coming soon, pics of the Aston Villa screening! Hang around!
P.S – Special thanks to Jijo, the in-house photographer of the group, proud owner of a KTM Duke bike (Thanks for the drops buddy :P) and of course, a big Arsenal fan!
Jai Arsenal 🙂
