Tomorrow sees the visit of Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt to the Emirates Stadium in game 5 of 6 in this year's Europa League group stage.
Whilst we are not expecting to have the area around where I work at Highbury Corner full of pissed up Germans we mustn't underestimate the Germans' natural instinct for invasion. We saw it most visibly when we had Cologne visit for the same competition.
Why? Eintracht are currently serving a fans away travel ban for a variety of offences. But of course there will always be those that travel without tickets and try to get in.
It means with the Arsenal fans unhappy (to put it mildly) at the current league position, on pitch performances and the seemingly out of his depth coach in Unai Emery, that this could be the emptiest the ground has been.
As a season ticket holder and Arsenal supporter I will be there. There have been calls to boycott the game to show the board how the fans feel. This is okay if you are a silver or red member and haven't paid for a ticket, but the club already has my money. I don't see the point of cutting my nose off to spite my face as it will have no effect.
