smithybridge-blue's review of The Emirates Stadium

Big ground with great views from anywhere in the stadium. Big seats that feel slightly padded, but when you sit down you have to feel half-way up your back to find the edge of the seat to tip it back down again. Regular 60,000 gave the stadium a good atmosphere, but like many other grounds it can take an Arsenal goal to get the home fans going. The Drayton Arms behind the away end is handy but is always rather busy, but there is a shop next door that sells cans (but watch out for the police as they don't like you drinking in the street). Finsbury Park has a decent clutch of pubs and takeaways as does the major high street that leads to Highbury & Islington Underground.

Location

Arsenal Underground Station is behind the old Highbury Stadium and Finsbury Park is also within easy walking distance. Alternatively, Highbury & Islington Underground Station is within reasonable walking distance. Car Parking is available outside the exclusion zone and (should you actually be able to find somewhere to park) can be a considerable walk.

View

Can only comment from visitors section point of view. Seat huge and comfortable. Unobstructed views.

Facilities

Clean and modern stadium with good facilities all round.

Food & Drink

Highly expensive, even by football stadium standards.

Police & Stewards

Friendly and helpful stewards.

Atmosphere

Generally takes a goal to up the tempo, but like the majority of the big clubs, the home supporters think they have a divine right to win. If they don't, it's never their teams inability at fault, but the oppositions for "not playing the game the right way".
