Arsène Wenger became Arsenal’s manager when I was 17. Throughout my adult life - university, jobs, relationships, marriage and two kids - he’s been a constant. It’s a strange, sad feeling that he’s going. #MerciArsène for the beautiful football, the trophies and so many highs.

Way back in 2006, long before Slack, a few colleagues and I ran a little tumblelog/microblog at the very cool URL (sadly no longer live) to share the interesting stuff we’d found. I especially liked the way posts and comments were presented inline.

Happy #6music1994 day. What were you up to then and what do you want to hear from that year? It was my first trip to London to record a Peel Session with our band Kenickie!

Great memories of Chelmsford and gigs in my youth listening to @BBClamacqshow earlier tonight: The Army & Navy, The Y and @BassmentBar
