Thread: Advice for the Doncaster game

  1. #1

    Advice for the Doncaster game

    I'm taking the boy (10 years old) to the mid-week game against Doncaster.

    We've got tickets in the upper tier, block 114.

    It's a 19.45 pm kick-off, so what time do you reckon we should aim to get to the stadium (we'll be coming up the Piccadilly Line and getting off at Arsenal station)?

    We're on holiday so can get there at any time.

    If you arrive at the turnstile at 19:35 you'll be in your seat by 19:45.

    Do not, under any circumstances, be tempted to try the 'beer'.

    People usually turn up near kick off time or even a bit later for evening games.

    If you want a bit more time to experience the 'atmosphere' take some photos eat something and perhaps pop in the shop get there around 6:30pm
    It really doesn't take long to get inside the stadium.

    5 minute walk to get in the stadium.... being a 10 yr old you will have to add on an hour for shopping, another 20 mins for burger and coke and 5 minutes for him to realise he needs the loo just before the game starts.

    Get there for lunchtime imo

    Better off feeding the kid in one of the many food options in advance of the Arsenal experience, pizza on Upper Street has always worked for me.

    2 bags of sweets/jellies for £1 on Drayton Park to keep him occupied during the game and the plan is a good one.

    Yes. 6.30 for the "experience" or 7.30 if you want to get straight to the action.

    There are some decent places to eat on Blackstock Road as well.

    Is Desh still open on Highbury Park?

    It is a little pokey and spit and sawdust standard, but did a mean Chicken Bengal... and you could take your own booze in
