The End of the Road…

It is with regret that I have made a decision to shutdown Avenell Road, I have been thinking about doing this for a few months now, there are probably hundreds of reasons why I have come to this decision the main one being a selfish one, I honestly don’t have the spare time to dedicate to the site that it deserves.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the site, those that have commented and those that have read. It has been a pleasure.

Thanks for the memories guys and girls, I may see you around contributing to other sites or even starting your own..
I haven’t allowed any comments on this post so please don’t waste your time trying..

Best wishes and Up the Arsenal

    Hi, I write for Arsenal Mania but would love a blog of my own but am too useless to make one. Could I take over yours?

    Thats a of the more sane blogsites out in the gooner nation…

  9. stonroy says:

    It’s a shame mate because you write really thoughtful intelligent pieces. Here’s an idea just write one a week and all the people who get on News Now will see it. No need to go from all to nothing.

  10. Sam says:

    Good riddance 😉

  11. Dave says:

    Blimey mate, noone likes to lose to stoke but this is a bit drastic!. Seriously though never posted here before and was a late comer but thught I’d be reading you for a while longer yet. Best of luck fella.

  17. Big Raddy says:

    I join in the sadness over this demise, and am confused as to the why’s and wherefores.

    But I guess I will see you chaps somewhere else.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this community and wish everyone well. You have all been an active part of my life and the site is a testament to the endeavours of the administrators.

    Thank you all very much and we will meet again in the ether

    A particular thank you to Avenell. Well played mate.

  18. PDT says:

    Very sorry to hear this news! This has always been an outstanding site!

  19. Mustang says:

    finally found a site where fellow gooners can have constructive chat and the odd moan about our club then you decide to shut it down? Not because of some foolish comments I hope? Surely something can be worked out with the other contributors, no? Rico, London, etc?

  20. raif says:

    sad sad news… i think maybe at least you should leave it open for the people to have some form of contact..

    sorry to hear the news

  21. Kop This says:

    Arrogant Gunners glad Stoke knocked you out. As the song goes…Arsenal win fu*k all! 4 years and counting your spineless brand of football…

  22. Edmond Dantes says:

    Quite disappointed that its the “end of the road.” I was accepted here at Avenell Road after being kicked out of the Grove. Le Grove sucks by the way!
    In parting, I feel obliged to say for one last time, “There’s only one Arsene Wenger.”

  23. Jockdownsouth says:

    I’ve enjoyed your posts. Thanks and good luck!

  24. shame was a good read

  25. ClockEndRider says:

    A shame to see one of the more upbeat, positive sites go. All the best.

  26. yidcunt says:

    Fuck off you piece of shit!! Good riddance you bastard. I really do hope you fail at everything you do from now until your grave.
    You have always been anti wenger, anti redknapp you are a cunt and I will finish by saying go toss yourself off you wanker.

  27. GunnerPete says:

    Very sad to see you go. So many other sites speak rubbish and survive. You will be missed.

    Just hope Arsene can keep our spirits up.

  28. Q8Gooner says:
