This is Dave Seager’s fourth Arsenal book, but the first since the loss of his son and his Arsenal soul mate. The book’s journey began, in part, as therapy, but became so much more. Having found his own relationship with football and Arsenal had dramatically altered, Seager wanted to explore and highlight the stories of fellow fans who, through no fault of their own, had their support for their team framed differently.
The result is a fabulous, moving, revealing, amusing, and rewarding book – made so by the stories of the disabled Arsenal fans that he interviewed. The heroes of the book, including an ex Paralympic athlete, a well-known TV sports journalist and a Member of the British Empire, perhaps cannot see their team play beautiful football, hear the crowd roar, or jump for joy when Arsenal score, but their passion and commitment to following their team is no less than that of the able-bodied fan who takes these things for granted. We know you will love this book and be inspired by the stories you read.
Observant Arsenal fans will have spotted that the book’s title is Arsenal FC’s mantra for inclusivity, diversity and indeed accessibility. The club have backed the project from outset and allowed Dave Seager access to key staff for interviews.
“I am very proud of the work the club has done and will continue to do to make Emirates Stadium an accessible and inclusive place for all our disabled supporters. As a disabled person and an Arsenal Football Club employee, I was delighted to be involved in this amazing book, that truly reflects that Arsenal for Everyone is so much more than just a soundbite.”
Alun Francis, Disability Access Officer, Arsenal Football Club
