You Can Wash Your Hands

By Janeslondon
I live near the Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal football club.
It means nothing to me except that I sometimes have to change my journey if I need to use the public transport on a match day due to the restrictive in/out at the tube station when a game starts and finishes or the slow traffic on the roads. Oh, and some of the supporters invade my local pub. But at least they have good taste.
One good thing about the stadium is the facilitates an easy cut through when walking from Holloway to Blackstock Road via Drayton Park and Gillespie Road. and it's rather nice wandering around the stadium when there is no one else there.

When I was doing just that recently I noticed how a glimpse of old houses in Drayton Park formed part of a mini quilt pattern in amongst the contemporary architecture so I took a photo. Turning into Gillespie Road the tube station was like a jewel against the bright blue winter sky.
Back in August 2009 I took a wander around the stadium. Below are some of the shots from that day.

I have only ever been inside the stadium once, and that was for a Bruce Springsteen gig. My then boyfriend was a big Boss fan and despite going with a gang of Bruceophile friends, had also bought an overpriced ticket for me even though he was well aware that a stadium is not the kind of venue I would go to for live music. I was happy to go. But the sound was appalling, the view 9from the grass) was hindered and the beer choice was piss lager or crap lager. I left about half way through and went to the pub where I could hear it better from outside with a pint of something decent in my hand!
