I went to an Arsenal Europe League game earlier this season as I was working down in London, hadn't been to the Emirates before and tickets were £20. |
There were many, many things on show incompatible with my enjoyment of football. There was a lad a few rows in front who didn't watch a second of the game, was continuously on his phone. The only time he even remotely acknowledged what was going on was whenever Arsenal scored and he got his mate to record him staging a really over the top celebration 15-20 seconds after the ball had hit the net that he could post online .
So that was great.
Having said that, went to Stamford Bridge as well a month later for another Europe League game and it was totally different. Very few tourists, nobody taking selfies or on their phone for the whole game. Beautiful old ground too. Lining Abramovich's pockets aside, I'd love a third round game down there.
I was heading for the 1992 Olympics for Judo before injury.
