God is a Gooner

The Making of a View Point in North London

Its over 48 hours (I’m late) after the first home match of Arsenal at Emirates and I bet emotionally thrilled gooners won’t have missed the visuals of one of the top view points in London on a weekend. (I don’t care if there is some agency which conducts a poll on ‘Top View Points on a Weekend’ in London and they haven’t included Emirates yet. If there is or there is not, we can do that. Who wants to go to a museum or a river-bridge on a weekend? I don’t , definitely.)

Arsenal Legends Embracing the Emirates

The club is ‘Arsenalising’ Emirates Stadium and the creative process is still underway. Interestingly, images of 32 Arsenal Legends (the pic of which appeared 2 weeks back) on 8 cores will be mounted outside, embracing the stadium and the fans. Imagine the view from sky – Class Apart!

Inside the stadium, there is already a white impression of one huge cannon on the red seats opposite the tunnel

There are few more pics available of the far view of cannon taken during daylight and at night.

There will be ’12 Greatest Moments’ walls. The historical moments were chosen by an official poll on arsenal club website. The oldest wall will be dedicated to our one of the greatest managers and one of the game’s first modernisers – ’25 – The Herbert Chapman
The other 11 walls will be dedicated to
1971 – The ‘double’
1989 – Winning the title at Anfield
1994 – Winning the Cup Winners’ Cup
1995 – Dennis Bergkamp signing for Arsenal
1996 – Arsène Wenger appointed manager
1997 – Ian Wright breaks Cliff Bastin’s goalscoring record
1998 – First ‘double’ under Arsène Wenger
2002 – Another ‘double’
2004 – Arsenal winning the league and remaining unbeaten
2005 – Thierry Henry breaking the Club’s goalscoring record
and 49 – Unbeaten run by the ‘Invincibles’

Apart from all this, there will be pictures and displays celebrating the Gunners’ exploits in Europe, the Club’s managers, its hat-trick heroes, and a special players’ signing wall – among much more. The club will slowly unveil the additional visual attractions to the visiting fans in the next 2-3 home games.

Arsene, commenting on Arsenalisation, said:

“You want to transfer the history of the Club somewhere into the walls, and create a new history with the results. I have met so many people who have been going to Arsenal for 50 or 60 years and had their heart and soul at Highbury. We have to give them something back here where they think ‘that is part of what I have experienced my whole life. They want to see the faces of the players they have seen – Tony Adams, Patrick Vieira, Cliff Bastin. That has to still continue here.”

This is what football is about and how it is different from other sports. I don’t think what football is today could have been anywhere near without its fans supporting all the way – home or away, traveling with team.

I support Manchester United. But I have fondness in my heart for Arsenal. I saw the movie FEver Pitch. I said this great i like this movieand that’s when started to like Arsenal too.

Strange! I cant imagine how one can one like arsenal and ManU at the same time.

I have seen fever pitch and i have read the book too. I even watched its hollywood version (starring drew barrymoore)which was pathetic. Colin Firth as a gooner in british movie has done fantastic job.

Anyways, welcome aboard. Thanks for the read
