Different Atmosphere At The Emirates? by Dan Smith
Whatever your thoughts were regarding Arsene Wenger, one positive is for the first time in years gooners will be united this weekend. The Emirates has often been mocked for it’s lack of atmosphere. The lack of trust in the squad meant it never takes long for the stadium to get tense. It means it has never become the venue which should be our fortress. An impressive structure to look at but not one that intimidates visitors. This, enhanced with protests, banners and even fights becoming the norm.
Ironically rock bottom appeared to be the same fixture as this weekend. Supporters were so depressed by the League Cup Final many couldn’t be bothered to show up days later. That remained the case till the end of the season. So at least in the short term the Gunners will will be backed 100 percent.
Those who demanded change now hope this is the start of a bright future , while all are fascinated about something new.
There’s also a recongnition that against Man City we might need the 12th man. Maybe the champions having to face Arsenal with everyone on side will make a difference?
Get behind the team!
