Zero tolerance of Numpty's
One thing that was good last night and that I never thought would happen, was proper singing in the bars in the Park Lane, both Goal line and on level 2. Good stuff. There were a lot of first timers last night as well which distorts the picture a bit. The stadium is a proper statement and monument though, different and far exceeds anything else I've seen or experienced. Emirates is much worse in comparison.There is talk of an area in the north stand still to be fitted out,that the club are now thinking about adding another goal line bar V2.1 . Clearly this has taken off more than the club anticipated,but over crowding,selling out will drop the numbers back,or maybe once the novelty wears off it will anyway.
At away games,I always thought wow these couple of thousand spending like maniacs,the singing, if only a club could tap the home support the same way.I bet some grounds the away fans are a significant % of food&drink sold,because they are in earlier and drink more.I will still be more of an outside eating drinking fella I think especially now stadium access is so damn quick,4 mins from brown eagle to seat,thats quicker than from the bar under the south stand!!
