I’ve been quite impressed with the quality and price of the food on offer in the new stadium.

So far i’ve tried the sausage rolls, the minced beef and onion pie, the chicken burger, a pulled pork hot dog and chips. All very tasty. The breakfast pie my sister had on Saturday also looked good.

The only thing I have tried that I was’nt impressed with was the Malaysian curry from the Naan and Noodle, very meh and not very good value for money.

Where are they selling hot dogs in the south stand -any level - ?

I’ve been trying to find a site which shows exactly where all the food outlets are in each level of the stadium and what is on their individual menus . Haven’t been able to find this basic information anywhere on the club web site .
I don’t know I’m afraid as I’m in the East Stand and have only eaten from the Touchline Grill there. Took one look at the Market Place and that was enough for me to think “fuck that”.

If you have access to the app then the interactive map is very good. If not, take a look back at some of your emails from around the time of the Palace game as I’m sure the club emailed a stadium guide and map (y)

Went on Saturday, first game for a long time. I’ve never been to an away game (at least not since colour TV) so rather than regale you with my experience, I’d like to get your views on how our stadium experience matches our rivals.

I hung around for an hour or so after the final whistle. On at least three levels, East Side, there were live bands playing, and good crowds watching. The place was still packed, I wanted to see the longest bar in Europe, but not a chance! There were still queues at most bars. It was fucking freezing, and although some of the outdoor precincts were accessible, there weren’t many people out there. When it’s warmer, it’ be a lot more welcoming.

The food was excellent, but everywhere ran out. I still haven’t sampled the sausage rolls.

My question, I guess, is how does this compare to the likes of Old Trafford? It feels like NWHL could be a venue in its own right, never mind the football. Does that happen elsewhere?

We finally got in there - third try - before the Huddersfield match and thought it was great. Great atmosphere, great craic from the chanting and good-humoured groups of fans. We weren't up for food or beer - too early - but it was good to scout out the options. And I bought a Bovril (awww) from the well-staffed Goal Line Bar without any difficulty.

If we arrive early and hungry for any matches in the future, that's where we'll go. If they let us in...

Maybe The Woolwich should change to green shirts looks like they are green with envy , a sensory room & a street market now that's a novel idea why didn't we think of that ..................https://www.arsenal.com/news/emirates-stadium-development-plans , https://www.arsenal.com/news/club-level-developments

"Wow wow wow wow wow the Emirates in 2020 will go under construction for all four corners to fill up the spaces in the stadium behind the TV boards "

And as for filling in the corners of a curved stadium not sure that's architecturally possible surely you would need to extend the perimeter outwards .

So have they added their 660 extra seats already? Is their Marketplace in place? That bit on the website was 2017. No mention anywhere of increasing the capacity like that tweet said. Time will tell.

We continue to set the standard others try to reach.

Nothing to do with your post above, but thought you'd be interested in this post, if you haven't already seen it:

http://www.spurscommunity.co.uk/ind...f-tottenham-thread.134714/page-6#post-6275882

It's what we talked about a couple of weeks ago and it's something that you've been highlighting for a few years now

Well it was nice having the best stadium in Europe for a while. Once the Emirates fills in those corners though it will be on a whole new level I'm afraid.

This guy is obviously talking BS. There are sightline rules why you can't put seats all the way back in the corners of a bowl.
Emirates only has 2 screens to our 4 so they could potentially fill 2 of the gaps up.

It would look silly though and you would have thought that would have been in the original plans if they wanted to take advantage of their season ticket waiting list besides that still wouldn't make it anywhere near better than ours.
