Reports are out claiming that Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott is convinced the Emirates is now becoming a fortress.
The England international winger is convinced that the expansion of the club’s trophy collection is due to more than just paying off the arena and that the home side are becoming settled at their (relatively) new home.
“Highbury was a fantastic arena – it was so passionate and everyone was together. We’ve been at the Emirates for nine years and that’s starting to be like a big fortress and starting to feel like Highbury was.
“There’s been a lot of special moments there. The amount of money that has come in to the club now and the players we’ve spent it on is the difference to what it was years and years ago.”
