Here Dili attempts to steal the FA Cup.

Dili - president and evil mastermind

The face of the Chicago Gooners, Dili is the reason we have achieved legendary status among Arsenal supporters groups in North America, who whisper our names in hushed tones.

Dili is originally from Wisconsin, where she quit the family cheese-making business to seek fame and fortune in Chicago.  She currently divides her time evenly between running Chicago Gooners and preparing "Phase Two" of her world domination scheme.

Matt is the friendly face of the Chicago Gooners.

Matt - vices president

The average Chicago Gooner has 6.5 vices, and Matt makes sure to partake of them all.  He also writes all the melindiferous and cromulent words for our website and makes Facebook events so we all know when the matches are.  

Originally from Pennsylvania, Matt is a semi-retired stevedore, amateur chiropractor, and part-time traffic light.  He is most often found on the floor of the Globe Pub.

TOMMY - BARFLY

Tommy does nothing for the Chicago Gooners, unless you count drinking and yelling at matches.  

As the 47 year old eldest son of a prominent Chicago political figure, Tommy spends his time appreciating the finer things in life: Wagnerian opera, his 50 foot yacht, and dry champagne.  

Yes.  Meredith is judging you now.

meredith - disciplinarian

Meredith is Chicago Gooners' corporal punishment specialist, doling out appropriate verbal or physical smackdown wherever necessary and occasionally upon request.

Meredith was born in Bondsville, MA, but grew up in Whippingham, UK.  When not on the clock for the Chicago Gooners, she spends her free time organizing her impressive collection of rare and out-of-print needlepoint magazines.  

He just wants to be a wizard.

ian - web slinger

As the marketing master of Chicago Gooners, Ian creates graphics for all our events and manages our online presence.  

In 1972, Ian was sent to an Arizona prison by a military court for a crime he didn't commit. He promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Chicago underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a soldier of fortune.

kieth - social media whore

Did you know you can follow Chicago Gooners on Twitter?  Kieth wishes you did.  As the man behind our social media presence, Kieth is in charge of beating down trolls and "favoriting" stupid things that people say.  

Kieth dropped out of a local community college halfway through the first semester and, after working as a discount ticket salesman and a daytime stripper, he ended up homeless in Maui, sleeping in a van and in a tent on the beach.
