Not been to the Emirates yet, so I'm looking forward to tonight. How far is the Drayton Arms from the ground (providing people are going there, of course)? Also, I'm taking my brother tonight, who's 16 - is the pub particularly strict on under-18s (some pubs are quite happy for them to come in with an adult, just obviously not to drink)?

Would it not be best to park at a nearby train station and get train in?

Drayton arms is 2 mins from the ground, on the same corner as the away end, was buzzing in there before the Carling Cup game earlier in the season.

We legged it out the stadium on the final whistle to the tube, the queues built up very quickly

Thought that the ground was top quality last night, the drayton arms was rather packed and queing to get in, in the cold was not to great.

Read on here that the ground is on a really low level but in row 7 i had a great view!

I was in row 2 and it was a crap view of the far end. Almost as bad as the Arsenal crowd.

And you're right it was bloody freezing!

Tried getting in that Famous Cock pub next to Highbury and Islington station. Bouncers were being proper twats, wanted to see match ticket to get in. Had 3 mates inside who hadn't been on the game and were waiting for me, battery had died and I couldn't get in as I had an away ticket. Talk about being a twat for the sake of it.

Yeah felt the atmosphere was fairly poor in the away end to be honest. Tones of whoppers who either weren't willing to make any noise or just simply didn't have a clue what the words were to most songs. Think it was a mixture of both really.

Awful atmosphere. I don't think the big seats helped as we were all far apart and the songs all died down pretty quick.
