Welcome to what will hopefully be a regular feature on the TheBlock5Gooner called ‘The Interview’.
We all have our own various social media followers but how well do we really know them? In this feature I will chat with many different types of people from the ‘Twitterverse’; Podcasters, bloggers, supporter Group members and general Arsenal fans. I’m launching ‘The Intervew’ this week with 5 (Yes, 5!) different interviews each day this week.
