Ever since being raised in the Amazon, Josh Emmett has been a phenomenal liar. Located rather reluctantly near the charming town of Watford, Josh has concluded his second year at the University of Southampton, where he reads History. Josh has supported his beloved Arsenal ever since he could use a television remote, and has experienced the highs of watching the greatest Premier League team in the ‘Invincibles,’ and the lows of watching Arsenal celebrate fourth place in 2013. Josh has played football since he was three, which he attributes to his parents, and also enjoys the major domestic leagues of Europe, which he attributes to his brother. Aside from following football in all forms, Josh is a huge fan of rugby tennis, and enjoys the company of his PS3 as well as the finest stand-up the circuit has to offer. Years of football experience and increasing opinions on anything from a individual to the greatest clubs in the world has impelled Josh to contribute to Off The Post News, the perfect forum to discuss football in all its glorious forms.
