Arsenal, The Emirates Stadium - Away Ground Guide

Away End Of The Ground: Lower tier of the South East corner
Allocated Tickets Given To Evertonians: About 3,000

Nearest Train Station: Holloway Road or Arsenal if you fancy look at the old grounds facade at Highbury

In The Car: Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station on your right. Take the next left at the traffic lights into Hornsey Road and the stadium is about a 1/4 of a mile further down this road.
Where To Park: There is little parking at the stadium itself or in nearby streets. An extensive residents only parking scheme operates around the stadium on matchdays. It's probably better to park further out of London around a tube station such as Cockfosters and get the tube to the ground.

Where To Drink: The Drayton Arms is suggested in a few away ground guides

How Much Will a Programme set you back: £3

Watch Out For: Possible misiles from above where the Arsenal fans are sat

Bogey Player: Was Ian Wright now maybe Robin Van Persie

Moment We'd Rather Forget: Tony Adams goal against us at Highbury and that stupid celebration!

Reasons To Like Arsenal: For them winning league at Anfield in 1989 just when Liverpool thought they had it sewn right up!

Arsenal's Rivals: Tottenham and to a lesser extent all of the other London clubs. Also Man Utd although this had died down abit in recent years.

Ups: Amazing new stadium with all the modern fittings whilst also trying to replicate the tradition and history of the past

Downs: Poor atmosphere apart from the bigger games sadly

Famous Fan: Alan Davies of Q.I

An Arsenal Song: One nil to the Arsenal... to the tune of Go West by The Pet Shop Boys

Played For Both Clubs: Anders Limpar, Mikel Arteta, Martin Keown, Alan Ball

Other Connections: Everton were mentioned in the Arsenal film Fever Pitch

Has There Ever Been Any Agro: Not really at the new ground, Everton fans wernt happy when missiles started raining down on them in the past there though!
