Arsenal football fans, Highbury, London

Being based near the Emirates Stadium, at least once a month (or when ever they have these things) there is a large influx of Arsenal soccer fans to watch a game.

This evening Arsenal were playing Manchester City as part of the Barclays Premiership. Arsenal won 3-1 win.

From wiki: The Emirates Stadium is a football stadium located on Ashburton Grove in Holloway, north London, and the home of Arsenal Football Club since it opened in July 2006. The stadium has an all-seated capacity of 60,432, making it the second largest stadium in the Premiership after Old Trafford, and the third-largest stadium of any kind in London, after Wembley and Twickenham. During the planning and construction stages, it was known as Ashburton Grove before a naming rights deal with the airline Emirates was struck in October 2004. The stadium project cost £390 million, but not all was for the actual construction of the stadium itself.
