Arsenal look to copy Liverpool with new club anthem 'North London Forever' – here are the lyrics
9th May 2022

ARSENAL have seemingly adopted a new club anthem after "North London Forever" rung out around the Emirates on Sunday.

The Gunners took a giant step towards Champions League qualification with a 2-1 win over Leeds at the weekend.


Prior to kick-off, the Arsenal faithful belted out the new tune which has gone viral over the past seven days.

It is taken from the song "The Angel" which is written and performed by local Gunners fan, and son of actress Linda Robson, Louis Dunford.

The lyrics – which have been tweaked to work for Arsenal – were also seen as incredibly poignant on an afternoon when they welcomed back the stars of their 1971 double-winning team.

And Mikel Arteta revealed after the match that both he and the players were spurred on by the anthem being sung ahead of the match.

He told the official club website: “Wow. It was really emotional.

“The team were making comments in the dressing room that hearing the song with the spirit and emotion, it was unique. I never experienced that here.

"It was the first time and I really enjoyed it and hope the fans enjoyed it too.”

Arsenal appear to have finally moved on from the “Good Old Arsenal” chant – which has been a staple of theirs for decades.

In the past, they have tried to get Elvis Presley’s “The Wonder Of You” going inside the stadium, as well as Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline".

But Arsenal fans are now confident this anthem will stick as they head into a crucial final three games of the Premier League season.

The Gunners face rivals Tottenham on Thursday and can sow up a top four finish with victory.

But a Spurs win would reduce the gap to one point with two matches remaining.
