Arsenal Ban Vuvuzelas – Silence Is Golden

This just in from Arsenal:

“Further to their hugely debated involvement at this summer’s World Cup Finals in South Africa, Arsenal Football Club has decided to forbid the use of vuvuzelas within Emirates Stadium with immediate effect.

“This decision has been taken to ensure the enjoyment and safety of supporters on Matchdays, which is of paramount importance to the Club.”

Copying Tottenham, eh. That’s what I like to see.

Of course, this decision has nothing to do with safety. It’s all about enjoying that golden silence at the Emirates, encouraged back in the days of the Highbury Library. Mmm, it’s so peaceful.

    There we go then – let the roller coaster started by SPURS gain momentum to ban these things from ALL stadia. Wonder if Blackpool will regret their decision to allow the PAAAARP.

    Can Arsenal stop copying us please. Tottenham form a team in North London, they move there. Spurs win the Double, 10 years later arsenal do it, and now this.

    I think most Arsenal fans are above this article and it’s proceeding comments. I think it’s impossible to put 60,000 people anywhere and for it to be quiet. Highbury for the record, had a terrific atmosphere…. especially when they were beating Spurs over and over and over and over again.

  9. Briggsy says:

    Sorry if my grammer offends you Ollie, But I think you understood everything I said!
