Introduction

Arsenalwatch.com is a magazine style web blog aimed at the supporters of Arsenal Football Club. The aim is to spark informative and constructive debate.  You don’t have to agree with what others post.  That’s the basis for stimulating a lively dialogue. We all support our team, but everyone has their own views on how it should be run, managed and on the players.  There will be no ‘goalden goal’ policy in play that will make your comments the winner of the debate on any subject. By all means disagree with what other post, but you should recognise that everyone has the right to their opinion, even if you don’t agree with it.  We want this to be a place to see a wide range of views and for it to be a safe environment for all those who wish to contribute.

d) provide your comments in sentence form – no text speak, avoid acronyms, slang terms and offensive ‘shortcodes’;

e) anyone who persistently promotes their own websites by using URLs will be banned.

In extreme cases anyone who crosses the line in being offensive will be reported to their Internet Service Provider or the Police Authorities .
