People love having a pop at us- but we always turn up!

In the past, the present and I'm sure in the future, supporters of other clubs have often laughed at our expense because of a lack of atmosphere at our home games.

Laugh they may but at least we always turn up!

There was over 56,000 at the Carling Cup game with West Brom the other night. This despite the fact that everyone knew the average age of the side would be around 13.

Put this into contrast with the mighty Manchester United. They had a pitiful 51,000. Granted, they probably would have had 52,000 but I heard there was a pile up on the motorway from London to Manchester so it meant a lot of people couldn't make it.

The lack of trophies at the Emirates may be worrying in recent years but I have to take my hat off to Gooners. We always appear in our droves at the Emirates and away games.

Keep it Goonerish.......

I'm an Arsenal fan, but if United can manage to get 51k into their stadium with ticket prices at 40-50 pounds, surely we could have managed more than 56k with tickets at 10 pounds?

Put into perspective, 51k -56k not a massive difference. Not exactly something we can boast about.

You're so right, Wrighty. 33,000 of us were at the Emirates for the FA Youth Cup Final 1st leg in May this year.
