Meet the Gooner Family [Geof Green, Perth, Australia]

Meet Geof Green, my host in Perth for the Everton match. Geof was born in the UK but moved to Australia when he was a few year old.

Q. Why Arsenal? First thing that comes to mind is their history. The fact that they've never been relegated, The Invincibles. The list could go on and on. When Charlie George scored (I forget the goal) I remembered trying to be him. It's been a great team to support throughout their existence.

Q. Started Supporting Arsenal?
I was about 9 or 10 years old, it was the mid-seventies. I remember watching an Arsenal game on TV at home, just because it was on, and from then on I started trying to watch replays. I even pretended to be Arsenal players when I played football. My Dad is an Arsenal fan, and it wasn't until I was in my twenties that I realised the reason the TV was on that channel with the game playing was because he was bloody watching it. My Granddad was also a Gooner. He never really tried to get me into Arsenal though.

Q. Favourite Player?
Thierry Henry. He was classy and I loved his loyalty, even to this day he still calls himself a Gooner.

Q. Favourite current Player?
I really like Podolski at the moment. I like the fact that he came to the club and got a tattoo straight away. He's really into the badge and I think his general positive attitude spreads to other members of the squad.

Q. Favourite Arsenal moment?
Going 49 games unbeaten. I know it's not a 'moment' but that's what I'm most proud of.

Q. Where do you watch Arsenal in Perth?
I watch Arsenal at the Carbon Bar at the Crown Casino downtown. Sometimes we'll get fifteen to twenty people, at other times there'll just be five of us. The time difference can be a bit of a pain at times.

Q. Emirates or Highbury?
It would have to be The Emirates, it's a big stadium and that's helped us to be more competitive in Europe and gives us sustainability.

Q. League Prediction?
We're gonna win it! I have a good feeling about it. I think United will finish mid-table.

Q. Who will be Arsenal's player to watch for the second half of this season?
I don't think Ozil has really gotten into his stride yet, he's made a great immediate impact but there's still a lot to come from him. The thing is with Ozil is he's not a flamboyant player, but you don't pay big money for flamboyance, you pay for consistency, you pay for assists and goals and that's what he's going to give us.
