Hi, My name is David Frimpon. (No relation to Emmanuel Unfortunately)
Let’s start with the obvious: I’m a HUGE Arsenal fan and Arsene Wenger is basically my uncle.
I tend to make a fool of myself on social media. But who doesn’t right?
Did I mention Arsene Wenger was my uncle?
In terms of my love for football, I actually don’t think I can put into words how much the sport means to me.

I mean, the fact 11 men and a ball can give me a tingle downstairs is questionable, BUT I WOULDN’T CHANGE THAT TINGLE FOR THE WORLD!

Some of you may remember me from the first time I applied to become one of Copa90 presenters. Let me reassure you that my dream to become a part of the Copa family hasn’t stopped.

Over the years Copa90 have brought us amazing content and football stories from around the world that you couldn’t find anywhere else. I want to be the next person to tell those stories.

It would be such a honour to become the next Copa90 Presenter. I hope we can experience the different fans, sounds and the passion of the beautiful game we all love together!

What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?

It has to be ‘Battle of Cascadia’. There has always been a sigma that the Americans don’t really get football. I mean, the fact they call it ‘soccer’ when there are feet clearly being used is blasphemy.

But after watching this episode of derby days I definitely changed my mind on my view of football in America.

The effort the fans at Portland Timbers put in to create this unique football experience for spectators is amazing; they literally bring in a tree and cut it every time their team score!

I would suggest this at the Emirates but with us being the ‘Gunners’ I don’t think it would go down quite as well.

What is the best football game you have seen and why?

I don’t think there will be another game like it.
3,283 days since my team last won a trophy, surrounded by the 25,000 Gooners at the Emirates and 8 minutes into the first half of the FA Cup final, you’re 2-0 down.

But then stepped up the tiny Spanish magician that is Santi Cazorla. The rest is history.

I’ve been lucky enough to witness Arsenal pick up a lot of silverware. But this has to be one of my most memorable moments as an Arsenal fan because of the occasion and what winning that trophy meant to many Arsenal fans including myself.

Many will say “it’s just the FA Cup”, but on that day it was truly an emotional roller coaster.

What is your favourite football snack?

Get me to any food stall on match day, if they sell hot dogs I’m game! I’m actually craving one now.

Who is your footballing idol?

Dennis Bergkamp. He was the definition of total football. Was a Netherlands fan for a while because of him.
