Meet the Gooner Family [Jeff, Boston, USA]

Meet Jeff Werner, my host in Boston and the guy that, amongst juggling a million other things in his personal life, helps keep the Boston Gooners ticking over. Despite having a whole host of important errands to run during the time I spent at his place, he still managed to make me feel at home and took me on a crazy guided tour through Downtown Boston and Cambridge, letting me snap away to my hearts' content. Suffice to say, if it weren't for Jeff I wouldn't have got to see anywhere near as much of Boston as I did. Yes, it was at a frantic pace, but when you don't have much time and you have to contend with Boston traffic, I think he did a fantastic job, so well done Jeff!

Q. Why Arsenal?
Just for the approach and classiness exhibited by the club. They're commendable and worthy of emulation and of course they are supremely enjoyable to watch. The club conducts itself very well and sets a great example to others.

Q. Started Supporting Arsenal?
1997/1998 season because I was playing FIFA 97 or FIFA 98 with my friends and I recognised the name Dennis Bergkamp and it stuck, I think it's because he was the best player on the game. That did it for me.

Q. Favourite Player?
It's difficult to say, I would probably pick Tony Adams because he was a true leader and a bit of a bad boy which made opponents fear him. If it wasn't Tony I would have to pick Patrick Viera for the same reasons listed above.

Q. Favourite current Player?
Toss up between Podolski and Ramsey. Not specifically because of play, it's because of attitude. Podolski's always in a good mood and he's elated when he does well. Aaron Ramsey because I remember when he got hurt, and expectations for him coming back were ridiulcous, I have a lot of respect for him because he proved his critics wrong and he's flying now. He's Wales' best player too, haha!

Q. Favourite Arsenal moment?
Henry versus Leeds or Arshavin versus Barcelona. I find it impossible to pick one over the other.

Q.Where do you watch Arsenal in Boston?
Lir Pub. We've only been there since February 2012. It has a certain cosiness about it and all the regulars know each other. The location is fantastic and the staff are wonderful.

Q. Emirates or Highbury?
I never went to Highbury so I can't fairly say which one. I grew up with Fenway Park and I compare that to Highbury as the spiritual home. But Emirates had to happen in order for us to compete with the big boys. We lost some character but gained some extra ability, there was no other way.

Q. League Prediction?
Arsenal are capable of making a title run. We could finish anywhere from 1st to 3rd, but 1st is highly contingent on improving squad depth in January.

Q. Who will be Arsenal's player to watch this season?
Aaron Ramsey no question, it wasn't a fluke that he's got to where he is as a fan favourite. It's the combination of a lot of hard work and determination.

So that's it from Jeff and I. Remember to keep donating!!! Next stop for me is New York City, stay tuned.
