‘It gives me goosebumps’ Jonas Eidevall talks up good energy around Arsenal- for men’s and women’s teams

Arsenal Women manager Jonas Eidevall says that the good energy around Arsenal at the moment is not just limited to the men’s team, who currently top the Premier League table.

Recently, the men’s team dedicated their North London derby victory to Beth Mead, whose mother June passed away earlier this month. On Tuesday, the club unveiled the first of their eight “wraps” around Emirates Stadium, which features the 2006-07 quadruple winning women’s team alongside the men’s Invincible team from 2004.

“It is a privilege to work for a club that is supported by so many great human beings. This togetherness that we feel in the club is not just the employees of the club I think it’s everyone that is connected,” Eidevall said.

“Players, staff, employees and the fans are connected. It’s great when you feel the movement around the club right now. That we are moving in the right direction together and feeling the enjoyment.”

On Sunday, Arsenal Women’s game away at Brighton was called off two hours before kick off due to a frozen pitch. Gunners defender Lotte Wubben-Moy responded by putting money behind the bar at the designated Arsenal supporters pub so supporters could have a drink on her. Eidevall believes that good energy becomes contagious.

“And when you are feeling that, it triggers good actions. Like Lotte’s action, it is brilliant, it shows how empathetic she is. She is in a situation where she is so disappointed that we are not playing a game.

“She can still have the emotional intelligence to think about the fans who already travelled. What about them? Can we do something to make sure their experience is better?

“It is the same with the gesture of the men’s team towards Beth Mead and her mum. It gives me goosebumps because it is the same thing. They, of course, were so focused on playing the North London derby but that didn’t stop them from spending time and energy thinking about a colleague at the club who is going through a really tough time, how can we show support?

“It makes me really proud but it should make everyone who is connected to the club proud.”

Arsenal = Class.
Oozes from every pore! It’s one more reason I love this club!

Superb Tim! One club indeed!
Can you change the heading slightly and also post it in the men’s section since most of “the fans” that still snub the women’s team will not see the support offered to Meado from the big boys!
At least if it is “their” section then they might acknowledge how the male players feel about the club beyond the First Team.


Still run into those toxic men’s fans but even though they are loud it happens less and less on the whole as there seems to be fewer of them. A sign of progress maybe.

Very good point, l can’t believe how many males (l won’t call them men because its an insult) still post such disrespectful, horrible comments about the women’s game. What puzzles me, if they hate it so much why are they on a women’s football page anyway ?

Probably because their IQ is around a goalkeeper’s shirt number and even Kaylan’s is only just in double figures! 🙂

Fun Gunner

Me too 😊

Great piece, and how true, nowadays you really feel connected to the club. I wonder if all other clubs have the same vibe?
