more like a conference centre than a stadium.

if the european average stadium was like this one i would be happy.

Last year CL match Arsenal vs Barcelona was great with a fantastic ambiance.

Love the Emirates. I've seen a few matches over there, it's absolutely cracking. Definitely one of my favourites in the whole world.

Couldn't agree with you more. If every European stadium was like the Emirates, it would be perfect. For one, I think the 60,000 size should be the biggest that Euro stadiums are. Not too big, not too small. Just right for the big clubs.

I also always think back to the Arsenal Barca match as really the best that European football has to offer. On TV it just looked and sounded amazing.

Dull and depressing more like.

I suggest you take a look at some of the stadiums recently completed for the Euro 2012 Championships in the Ukaine and Poland - some real gems there.

No. Nothing against Arsenal. Great club, great tradition.
Been passed it quite a few times on the train and went there once.

In any case, its not all bad news - the inside of Arsenal's stadium is
impressive.

That's a shame.

EDIT: How close/far are the sidelines?

I have, and while some of them look quite nice I suspect they will be quite empty, quite frequently once Euro 2012 is over and the resident clubs take over. Say what you like about the Emirates being corporate and boring but at least it is full for most of Arsenal's home games despite high ticket prices.

While I agree that's hardly ideal be sure to recall that the club were constrained with a height limitation that meant in order to achieve the desired capacity range the seating would have to be pushed back, at which point the shallower tier is at least more manageable as you're looking more out than down. It's another reason the proposed new White Hall Lane would have roughly 4k less seats, though arguably better sightlines within that lower tier. Had Arsenal kept this slope but move the stands closer it would be all the tougher for fans in the back to follow the action close to the end lines.

They will probably be half-empty (or half-full if you're an optimist), but where's Poland in terms of football and where's Arsenal?

That said, Arsenal stadium when full is still amazingly dull, I simply cannot stand watching games there (only on TV, though, it was empty when I visited it). But taking into account that almost every single away team has louder following at Emirates than the home side, I'd tell you the Euro 2012 stadiums will provide way better atmosphere even when half empty and even despite the draconian laws introduced, tougher than English in many aspects. Which brings us exactly to the point oxo was making: Emirates is full, but full of corporate clients with a very small, outnumbered minority trying to provide any sort of spectacle off the pitch. Which, again, means it's corporate and boring, really.

So name a premiership ground where every game is amazingly exuberant. Minority always making the more noise ? How would you know ?

And as for draconian laws governing english football , dont get me started.

How would I know? I'm in constant contact with groundhoppers and supporters from various countires, which - not really surprisingly - means England as well. Emirates is in fact the one with worst reputation I know (and if second worst, what does it change? not much), though I'm far from naming any English club with exuberant atmosphere.

WTF. The stadium is great.
And what the heck does it have to do with Wembley? There's like 20 other smaller stadiums in London than Emirates, it's not a competition between those two.
The only thing is that it could have been bigger, like 80k or something, cuz Arsenal always has a very high attendance but they couldn't have made it bigger because of height limitation for the zone or some shit.
Yeah, Highbury was so unique if you want, but there's a time for everything and the old stadium was too small and unexpandable.

Personally, if you are going to pick a stadium in Europe that they all should look like, it should be Porto's ground, the Estadio do Dragao.
