Evening at the Emirates

Last night I had my first Emirates experience. It was pretty awesome.

couldn’t believe when I looked back at my photos I missed the ‘E’ off – obviously too much in a rush!

After finishing work, and quickly grabbing some food (obv high on my list after a long day at work!), me and Alex met his friend and girlfriend. Starting our short walk to Emirates (so lucky to be so close – love London life), we had a nice little catch up and stopped at a pub for a cheeky pre-match bevvy.

I really did need that glass of rosé after stressing myself out this week!

Emirates is huge! Walking up to it, you can only imagine the atmosphere on a big game night! Even going to watch the juniors was fab.

The first half we sat close to the away fans. Although this was quite funny – people getting so rowdy over a juniors game; one man was actually trying to be calmed down by his what looked like 10year old son! Ha it did get a little annoying though. I was getting a little irritated with the Chelsea chants!

At half time we moved to the other goal end, submerged by arsenal fans and we were getting quite in to it.

It was nice to see kids going along – obviously as it was Easter and a juniors match this must have made a difference but some of them looked like they were really enjoying it!

Although we didn’t win, it was such a fun night!

We stopped off at the same bar on the way back for one more and headed home.

A fab night for the start of my 4day weekend. I loved it and would definitely be up for going to watch a big game! Fingers crossed Alex decides to take me some time.

      Thanks for your comment.
      It was so much fun! I would definitely recommend people to go, even if your not a total football nutter of a fan, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the experience. Being at Emirates was fab! I want to go again for a big match, think it’ll be crazy! Have you been to see a match before?

        Yes, but not across the pond. Only in the States when Manchester United came over. I saw England play in the States too before. Wish I could see them all the time.

          Ohh I see. But still…that must have been amazing! Very jealous, I really want to go to a big match now! You prefer it to american football?

            Oh yeah. Most definitely. But some people here can’t understand it and find it hard to see the appeal of soccer.
