Upper pisses on lower in terms of view

You can also piss on them literally if you really need to go and the queue for the toilets are too long

Atmosphere wise, pretty much been the same wherever ive sat. Makes no difference.

Unless youre lower and in the middle of the stadium and can see both ends of the pitch then its upper all the way

Lower at one end of the pitch then good luck watching the action at the other


Yeah once i got half way line seats at the top part of lower tier or club level, there was no going back to clock or NB. Of course you're right on top of the action if they score at your end but if we concede, I'm not sure I could take that regularly.

I'm hoping to eventually get one near the half way line but further up on the lower tier but apparently you need to be put on a list for first refusal for the following season to move about...

The seat I had, upper tier. Could see the whole pitch, the dug out.

When I went to the Cup final, managed to get similar seats.

As long as youre not behind a goal then you should be fine though

Practially impossible to see the other end but pretty good should we score at that end

Zedie as you said you just gotta take what you can get and then move later

My brothers mates actually jumped the queue by several years by offering to take really awful seats in the back row of the top level. They're slowly getting to where they want to be but it takes a while
Oh he is awful..... but I like him!

It's only a bit shit if you go in the first 10 rows of lower but who does that, the bar stewards will tell u to sit down anyway.


Blocks 5/6/10/23 are where the best atmosphere is, 23 only with a good set of away fans.

Would take the NB ticket Z, East stand is boring af but tbh doubt NB upper is much better. If you plan to move in a year it really doesn't matter...just get the ticket!

God dammit. I can do it this season, but finances will be tight for the first 4 months.

Going to think on it a while.

Btw has anyone ever switched from a single seat to a family ticket (If there's such a thing?). My boys are too young atm but one of my life goals was to have my own ST and then eventually have a kid who I will take. I've got 2 boys under 5 now so 2 tickets would be murder but some things in life are f***ing worth it.

How much is it btw? Thought around £1k to £1.5k? I'm on the waiting list still around 30000...website doesn't show me anymore and cba to phone up.

Got offered a club level one a couple months back as apparently they're expanding the section (probs just putting smaller seats) but they sent the details over email and it was something ridiculous like 6 grand.

At the mo, prices range from £1000 ish upper tier north bank to £1800 halfway line (not sure tier, didn't ask).

Lower tier cheapest are around £890 but apparently those go quite quickly..

more reason to go for the north bank one then, also won't your lads get auto silver via the junior gunner membership eventually?

That was my other problem with an ST, it's great for yourself but if you wana go with a mate then not sure how easy it is to get a ticket near or next to you..

Yup

we were 30,000 odd when we got one back in 2010

Had to get rid in 2015/16 cos couldn't justify paying £1300 a year to watch that shit

Lucky enough to get to go to the cup final in 14 but paying that much, it should be a guarantee I go. Missed out on 2015, thought f**k it. Gave up
