Back at the Emirates…

The club’s Covid-19 advice for the behaviour of returning supporters to the Emirates Stadium yesterday was, I’m sure, well thought out and sensible. It did however rather remind me of the advice my dear old mother gave me when I was younger, “Don’t talk to any strange men.”

Arsenal’s advice was: “…avoiding excessive shouting/singing/celebrations... You should avoid hugs, high-fives and any unnecessary close contact with people who are not known to you.”

Talking to strange men and having close contact with people who are not known to me was pretty much my modus operandi of my 20s and 30s!

And such close contact behaviour, albeit it in non-sexual way, had until more recently made a welcome return to my life at the Emirates Stadium. We hug a lot in Block 6. Or, we used to.

Oh well, it was back to nodding hellos and nodding goodbyes it is then.

Stay safe folks. And don’t talk to any strange men!
