New Names For The Stands At Ashburton Grove

New Names For The Stands At Ashburton Grove

With the news that the Gunners are looking to 'Arsenalise' Ashburton Grove, comes the possibility of us getting new, more 'human' names for our stands rather than the silly 'quadrant' bollocks we've got going on now

So we here are Vital Arsenal have come up with a list of suggestions to pass on to the hierarchy at Highbury House.

The Backhand Stand - A stand named in the memory of Sir Henry Norris, a dedication to the man who not only helped forge Arsenal into one of the most decorated clubs in English football, but also shaped the future of Tottenham Hotspur and set them on their way to becoming the club we all know and love (to laugh at) today.

The Tony Adams Stand - Every person attending a game in this area of the stadium will get a free pint of lager, a fire extinguisher and shite opinion with every ticket. Be careful when driving home after the match.

The Ashley Cole End - This end of the stadium was due to become a legend in football stadium folk lore, but there is a high possibility that the seats will all turn blue after the Arsenal board remove 5000 of them.

The Arsene Wenger Stand - All seats in this stand will come with restricted views only.

The David Dein Terrace - Formerly the Orange Quadrant.

The Le Grove Section - For Arsenal fans who want to boo, scream, cry and shit their pants every time something doesn't go our way. This section is also know as the 'Away End'

The Juande Ramos Stand - Named in honour of Ramos for his services to Arsenal Football Club.

The John Jensen End - This end will only be open for one game in it's history, but be sure to have a ticket for that game, as it will be a screamer.

The Robert Pires Stand - Oh the irony.

Quality stuff! I like the idea of the Glenn Helder stand, looks absolutely spiffing at first viewing, but then completely crumbles thereafter. Turns up shirtless on the poker channel in about four years time.

Or the Adebayor stand- prices rise as performance dips. Stand also features a thirty foot high perspex wall to protect supporters when Adebayor is through one on one with the keeper. Then they should rename Club Level the Alex Hleb enclosure- because there's no noise.

The Tomas Rosicky Stand - Has good wheelchair access, close to the First Aid centre and the chairs fold backwards into a treatment bed.

Nice CR!!!

The Jens Lehman Stand - Instead of a scarf placed on every seat is a straight jacket

And a set of nunchucks.
