Recent comments by Samir Nasri regarding the level of crowd passion at the Emirates have not gone down well with Arsenal fans.
Despite the bad taste shown by Nasri in making such comments, one cannot deny that the atmosphere at the Grove is not the best in the league.
This is a problem that plagues the big clubs in England, thanks to the 'prawn sandwich' brigade and an increase in the number of families that visit the games.
Arsenal have noted this problem and have embarked on the "Arsenalisation" of the new stadium. While some measures, like bringing back the Highbury clock, are good, much more needs to be done to provide the first team with the kind of '12th man' it needs.
