Many have taken the piss out of the atmosphere at the Emirates in the past. They did about Highbury too. But they can't deny that it wasn't a wall of noise on Saturday against the Spuds!
It was electric and a right smack in the face for those who have a dig about us Gooners being the silent type.
We Gooners were bang up for this game. I had the feeling we were dying to get revenge over that lot down the road because of the way we gave away a 4-2 lead the last time we played them at the home of football.
The noise was more impressive because early kick-offs are well known for lacking in atmosphere mainly due to the fact people aren't drunk and because most are still half-asleep!
Of course games against the Spuds will always get the blood pumping and you are more up for it than most other games but wouldn't it be nice if it was always like this at the Emirates?
As said the place was rocking and if we could get the atmosphere going like this at every game it could create the Emirates into one of the most intimidating stadiums in Europe. Easily.
I'd say that on the road Gooners create as much noise as anyone. If not more. They deserve a lot of credit for that. Lets try and match that commitment at our own home like we did on Saturday and turn the Emirates into a regular hotbed of noise and intimidation.
It was that loud that even Arsene Wenger couldn't get his point across and he threw he jacket in frustration. I'd like to see Le Boss do that more often! In a good way of course!
Keep it Goonerish.................
