About Charles Watts

I’ve been a journalist since 2002, cutting my teeth as a junior newspaper reporter before progressing to sport in 2005 when I started to cover Reading FC and various non-league clubs while working for the Reading Chronicle.

I spent several years working as a football reporter for regional papers around Berkshire before moving to the Reading Evening Post as the paper’s senior Reading FC reporter in 2013.

After four years in that role I joined football.london as the site’s Arsenal correspondent where I started to forge a reputation as one of the most respected journalists covering Arsenal home and away.

That’s a reputation I continued to build after moving to GOAL in 2019 and I have now amassed more than one million followers worldwide across my social channels.

I pride myself on providing passionate but objective coverage of the football club, breaking news and transfer stories and providing strong and opinionated analysis throughout the season.

In 2023 I took the decision to leave GOAL and launch my own Arsenal news service, with the aim of delivering trusted content to Arsenal fans via my various multimedia platforms, including this website, YouTube and my Inside Arsenal podcast show.
