    1) Arrive an hour or two early at Highbury
    2) Walk around the stadium, take some pictures
    3) Check out the new stadium, take some more pictures
    4) Pop into the Arsenal shop, buy some merchandising
    5) Before heading to your seat, buy a Rollover hotdog and a beer, then walk around the inside of the stand you're sitting in
    5) Whilst at your seat, take plenty of pictures/use your camcorder
    6) Sing your heart out
    7) After the match, join the queue getting into Arsenal Stadium

    The pregame snack is definitely essential. Enjoy your first trip to Highbury mate! I hope it's a memorable one and congrats on getting to a match before the move to Ashburton Grove.

    Get into the area 4 hours before kick off at least. Go to a few different pubs and have some pints, listen to the general banter and atmosphere generated in the pubs pre game. Go to the merchandise shop to get something to remind you of your day. Buy a burger at one of the burger stalls etc just generally look around. I wouldnt enter highbury until about 30 minutes before kick off, so when you arrive you will get on the terrace that is already packed and it will give you the real sense of atmosphere.

    hey, guv. what are your favourite pubs? i really liked bank of friendship; nice atmosphere. the gunners pub was so fekkin' crowded; impossible to even get in...

    btw; i suggest just hanging out in the street. buy a few bottles of beer at the local shops and just hang out nearby the stadium. the atmosphere is superb and everyone is really friendly.

    The only one I've been to is Cannons and only on a couple of occasions. I thought it was cool.

    I didn't mind the Gunners. I prefer the Arsenal Tavern though.

    But the Twelve Pins is better than all of them.
