To add on the name Gooners it was from our firm called the Herd who still are around today in small numbers & a couple of people on ere have had there moments being with them but there not as famous as the headhunters of CSKA Fulham or the ICF of West Ham

I thought the gooners were before The Herd? or those remaining of the Gooners formed with EIE.
But one thing i dont know, is what was the swedish connection? & i know its got sod all to do with Ljunberg! And dont even know if there is any substance in that either, but i have heard a thing or two about swedish Arsenal supporters pronounciation.....
Another story i heard was it was the Yids firm who renamed our firm Goons later adapted to Gooners, not sure how much truth there is in that mind, something to do with hounding out supporters from the old North Bank.
Werent the Clock End teh 1st Arsenal firm?
Not sure if Reg can answer this one maybe Libs can though!?
