It does for the normal away end - not sure about our extended away end for the FA Cup match as that's normally blocked off due to it being occupied by home fans
Too many fucking drama queens in here - if the arl arses had their way we'd be pushing burning tyres down Anfield Road.

I'd say its like most of the newer ground where that they can open the doors or remove the barrier so it goes the whole way round.

You can get a direct train from Stansted to Tottenham Hale then the tube to Finsbury park and walk from there

Overground to highbury and islington station takes about 15mins. Stadium 10 mins walk. Come out of the station turn left , walk down to Drayton park rd, walk up Drayton park road will take you to the away end

You can do it by legging it to Highbury and Islington and getting the tube from there to Euston. That's what I did at the league game back in November and managed to catch a 7.40 train from euston (KO was 5.30) so about 20/25 minutes doing it that way.
Not sure what the score is with taxis/buses although someone else probably will.

Yeah all in. I'm not certain but I think they shut Arsenal station after the game (as they do Holloway road). As I say i'm not certain about that but Highbury and Islington is a safe bet.

Tube from Highbury and Islington is the best bet. Direct on the Victoria line - two stops. Or walk to Finsbury Park - same line but three stops.

Thanks for that. We have an 1850 train so based on your experience we should be ok if we have our wits about us.

Public Service Announcement for you lot:

Highbury and Islington station will be exit only for the time being while they knock down the old post office in front of it. Since Holloway Road is always exit only after matches this means the stadium will only be serviced by Arsenal and Finsbury Park stations after the game. The queues for these stations are already beyond belief so it's going to be a real pain in the arse to get away if you're planning to use the tube after the match. I don't know why they couldn't have waited until the off season to do this, but that's Islington Council for you.

http://www.arsenal.com/news/news-archive/20150327/disruption-at-highbury-and-islington

Disruption at Highbury & Islington

Due to essential works being carried out, Highbury & Islington station will now be EXIT AND INTERCHANGE ONLY after matches at Emirates Stadium for the immediate future.

The Club has been involved in discussions with Islington Council, the Met Police and Transport for London to find a safe solution for supporters while this work is carried out at Highbury & Islington station.
However, unfortunately it has not been possible to find a solution to keep the station open after matches at this current time.

We advise that supporters who use Highbury & Islington station after matches make necessary alternative plans and leave extra time for their journeys.
Please visit www.tfl.gov.uk for details on how to plan an alternative journey.

We recognise this will result in delays and disruption over a period of time, but this is sadly beyond our control.

If you're heading for the Drayton you'll want to pick up a Zone 2 Travelcard. There aren't individual tickets you get for the tube. If you have a contactless credit/debit card your best option will be just to use that to tap in on the tube gates. Head for either Finsbury Park or Highbury and Islington. They're about an equal walk to the Drayton - however if you take the Finsbury Park option you'll get to walk around the stadium which might be more preferable - and if you're so inclined you can go have a look at Highbury, which is on the walk from Finsbury Park station.

A better way to boycott would have been to not purchase in the first place? Manchester City did it a few years ago and what did they get?

Cheers mate, ill head to Finsbury park and walk to Drayton and do Finsbury to Euston after the game? Will the zone 2 travel card cover the return price also? Sorry for the 20 questions, just heading to this on my own and I don't want to be like a fool around the place on Sat.

Yeah the travel card will sort you for the whole day within Zone 2 including busses. Bear in mind the queues outside of Finsbury Park will be hellish for long after FT. Euston's a building site at the minute but just go to a member of staff there who'll point you where to pick up you travel card if you can't see the signage. The walk from Finsbury Park to the Drayton will take you 15 minutes though but you've got Google Maps I'm sure. The route from Highbury and Islington is a lot simpler and not as scenic.

Yeah Ill be ok with Euston, will give myself plenty of time Sat morning. Have loads of time to spare after KO so ill head for a pint after the game to let the crowds go down. Based on that Ill head for Highbury & Islington instead, sounds easier. Thanks for your help, its much more clear now.
