Oh dear, it seems as though the big-wigs over at Arsenal really are worried that the new 60,000 seat Ashburton Grove will simply be a giant version of the Higbury Library. Perhaps not convinced by the natural passion of the Gunner fans, apparently an Arsenal Director suggested in a recent match program that the club may resort to a new style of stadium announcing to get the crowd more lively.
Supposedly the tactic being proposed is already used in the Bundesliga where, following a goal, the announcer shouts the first name of the scorer while the crowd shouts the second.
Not quite ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone‘, but it’s a start.
