About Daily Cannon’s contributors

Articles marked with ‘Daily Cannon’ as the author are a collaborative effort between two or more of our experienced writers.

Stephen Bradley is a Gooner and below-average blogger [his words] who writes what he thinks, but sometimes doesn’t think as he writes. Very occasionally makes a sensible point though, so watch out for that. Can be found on Twitter rambling away under the username @bradley08.

Paul Williams  is a third generation Gooner, obsessed with Arsenal since the 80’s. He’s been writing about that obsession and, ever so occasionally, the team since 2004 in a variety of places, but have found a natural home here. As you will find out if you stick around long enough, he’s a huge fan of Santi Cazorla. Paul is also extremely fond of cheese, Marmite, Pipers Salt n’ Vinegar crisps, Pilsner Urquell, vodka tonics and absinthe and also hopelessly obsessed with Depeche Mode.

Helen Trantum is a season ticket holder with a desperate addiction to both chocolate and the Arsenal. Since making the fatal mistake of living with a Tottnumb ST holder, she finds solace by writing for Daily Cannon and pottering about on Twitter. It’s really just a question of what kills her first!

Matthew Wade or @lomekian on Twitter. Slightly unhealthy fascination with Arsenal full-backs since watching Lee Dixon’s debut from the East Stand Lower, he’s a Football Manager and tactical geek, who has won the quadruple on every version since 1992, and before that on the Kevin Toms Classic in the 1980s. Also a Middlesex Cricket Club and Detroit Red Wings Fan. Now a professional actor and voice-over artist, but formerly an employment advisor and project manager. Read his part time blog ‘Edge of the Area’ here or see his actor’s website.
