Meet the Team

Ross Kennerley,Site Expert

Ross Kennerley was brought up on the joys of Swedish football on the southern coast, where an unhealthy obsession with sport began. Lover of all things that involve other people running around more than him, his love for Arsenal and football in general is, as some would say, over the top.

Krish Ajmani,Contributor

Krish Ajmani is currently a sophomore at UCLA. He loves sports, especially basketball and soccer. He especially loves it when Arsenal do not get slapped around by a big team. Unfortunately, those moments are rare but alas, that is the life of an Arsenal fan.

I first fell in love with the world's most popular sport when I was given an Arsenal jersey following a friend's trip to London. Since then I've followed Arsenal religiously including 7AM wake ups, visits to the only local pubs showing matches and a number of trips to the UK to see Arsenal live at home and on the road. I've also attended many MLS games, several Serie A matches in Italy and somehow ended up at a QPR vs. Huddersfield third round FA Cup contest in a hail storm. Football truly is "the beautiful game."

Eric McConnell,Contributor

Eric is a hardcore football fan whose love for the sport was sparked by Zidane's star turn for Les Bleus in 1999. Eric's admiration for that world cup winning side led him to Arsenal, where so many of the players on that 1999 team became club legends . Though the names on the kits have long since changed, Eric's love for Arsenal remains as strong as ever.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
