But no drum!
Not averse to drumming provided it was something like the drumming on Adam Ant recordings about 40 years ago or Burundi Black? Even something like the heavy drumming on the West End show Stomp! In the past.

Drumming needs to stay in the same place as the horns from the Luton game. In the bin!

Frank expects "one of the greatest atmospheres ever" when his side host the Gunners on Friday in what will be their first top-flight game since 1947.

He said: "It is the first game in the top flight for 75 years, I think we will experience something in comparison to Wembley and England v Denmark and Italy."


Manager's orders lads.

I took my small rucksack into the stadium last Saturday no probs. Folds down very small though. It's not a clutch bag ( although I can clutch it) but certainly not a big bag. Smaller than a shopping bag from Superstore!

Still struggling to picture this bag, could you please explain further.👍

Can i enter the stadium with a rucksack a laptop?

Thanks

Whilst the club has this list of prohibited items, much would depend on reasons to bring any particular item into the ground.

I can think of good reasons why several items on the list might be needed for someone with a disability and in such case, I would approach the club and ask for permission.

So what if I want to bring a small foldable umbrella (Brentford one), a small camera, a clear plastic bottle of water and a non offensive banner, am I not allowed a bag to put them all in? Surely I'm likely to drop them all in the excitement which could cause injury to other spectators. Just asking for a friend!!!!

Go and buy them from the club shop, then you’ll be fine

Those at the muff game were the hardcore and likely to be vociferous. Those are now watered down amongst 17K except the top of west stand. The newbies will need to be educated into bees behaviour and not sit quietly like other Prem games as neutrals they may have been to or when watching TV.

There was 4,000 or so at the B'Muff game and our average attendance last time we had crowds was 10,000 or so. There are lots to come back (including myself) who are well used to the need to generate an atmosphere ie not all those who haven't attended for a while are 'newbies'!! :rolleyes:

It might take a while to better Bournemouth, IMO, which was up there with any home crowd I’ve experienced.
I agree. It was the sharpest atmosphere I've ever experienced at a bees game. But is wasn't there in the 80s or 90s..

It says you can't bring Poles into the stadium. How can I tell my new crush Ewa that she'll have to sit in the Express and wait for me to come out? Do they check passports?
We were on holiday in central America. In Panama. We went swimming in a local resort. There were signs everywhere saying don't cuddle the Poles! They meant the poles supporting various walkways over the water and swimming areas. They were covered in very sharp barnacles. But I immediately thought - bit racist that!

Due to complete vestibular loss in both ears I have recently had to use a walking stick for balance issues. After reading the above I have emailed the club for guidance as we have tickets in the West stand.

Anyone use a walking aid and gained entry to the ground? Or should I expect to be approached?

No problem getting in. Enjoy the game.

How do you know Mrs J? Why do I have to find out this way? On the eve of a really big game, too. I always thought it was football she couldn’t abide....

I shall have to console myself with watching the East Stand extending their folding umbrellas, whilst discreetly reassembling my bagpipes in the West Stand...

I took my (banned) iPad every week to Griffin Park. Occasionally, a security guard asked their supervisor what to do about it, but the worst case was that they put a tag on my bag to show it'd been searched / allowed.
