Set foot in London on May 3rd 2012 and still had no ticket to the game 🙂
Roamed around. Frantically calling friends and checking twitter TL for tickets. Did it all of 3rd & 4th. And finally saw what a ‘ticket’ looks like on May 4th. Thanks to Tom Ansell. A gooner & a friend and @arsenal_tickets on twitter for the 2 tickets.
Which other club in the world has a train station to its name?
Apparently the hold up was because someone on a wheelchair could not be assisted, and security were making sure that’s attended to before the fans come marching in. You can see the restlessness in their eyes & shoulders.
Finally Inside. I did not click a lot of pictures, I was overwhelmed by the sights & sounds in the Stadium. Good thing that my gf (ex) was seated in another stand, so I saved myself the embarrassment of a wet eyes on display.
There is just no joy like singing with so many fans together.
Sang in the second half in another stand. Was told of an empty seat, went and sat with my gf finally. She had her fingers crossed for a good result too.
And they sang.
And they scored.
How typical eh?
C’mon Arsenal C’mon Arsenal C’mon Arsenal C’mon Arsenal ! We needed all 3 points and it was looking not so easy at all. Everyone was a bit restless.
Why is he standing there? He is Wojeich. Who knows.
I knew then that this is his final wave to the fans. It was pretty obvious.
You can imagine how the rest of my day looked after the 3-3 result. Face says it all 🙂
You can’t have enough of it can you? So I went back for a screening! Final day of the season.
There was still time for the screening to begin so I decided to take a stroll to a pub.
And along the way you see the influence on the neighbourhood.
I was told to have a beer and get out! Haha that was the deal.
No that fugly bag & bottle is not mine.
Yepp. That’s it!
And am gonna do it again next year.
Why didn’t I go last year? I think you know 🙂
