Tom is a journalism student at the University of Sheffield and, more importantly, a passionate Arsenal fan. Too many players have come and gone to adopt a favourite but if he had to name one, it'd be difficult to look past Thierry Henry. Or Dennis Bergkamp. Or Freddie Ljungberg. Maybe not Park Chu-Young. He used to regularly attend home games but living three hours away has now made getting to the Emirates every other week a bit tricky. Follow Tom on Twitter @gooner_tom

Alex started supporting Arsenal at a young age and witnessed many successful years as a boy, even having the pleasure of supporting 'The Invincibles.' On the other side of this, he has also witnessed the long, painful wait for a trophy and the hurt of seeing his idols leaving the club on a regular basis. His favourite people within football are: Wenger, Vieira, Bergkamp, Fabregas and of course Henry whose signed shirt he has hung up on his wall. Robin van Persie would have been on that list also but we all know the reason for his omission. Alex is currently in his second year at the Univeristy of Central Lancashire where he is studying Sports Journalism and he hopes to get a job within the industry on finishing his degree.

Scott is a Rangers and Aston Villa fan from the Midlands who now resides in Stirling, Scotland.
Scott made the three-way choice that faced everyone from his area as regards to his football leanings: Coventry City, Aston Villa or Man United? He went for the Villa and his first game was a brutal 0-0 draw with West Ham, setting the tone for much of the time supporting Villa.
Raised by a Gers-loving Scottish father, Scott always had a team on each side of the border and, after going to the University of Stirling, he got the chance to see his beloved Teddy Bears at Ibrox two years ago, when they were hammered 3-0 by Hibernian on a horrible November evening. Since then, he has managed to see them win a few times!
His favourite players are Ally McCoist, Savo Milosevic, Michael Mols, Andres Iniesta, Barry Bannan and Lee McCulloch.
Outside of football, Scott loves writing (usually on football but not exclusively!), heavy metal, reading horror and fantasy and he recently graduated from University of Stirling in English Studies.
He is now training as a sports reporter and covers Stirling Albion games every week.
