The Sounds Of Soccer




Whatever the Gunners have got, they got to fire today! Tuesday’s match versus AC Milan comes as much like the finals to Arsenal as probably the real finals itself.

Arsenal has to score five goals if it wants to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The team has to play above their best in the game and the fans have to pray hard because such kind of feat, though seemingly difficult, has happened three times before. There’s always a chance.

But the one force that penetrates into the game as easily as it fades away is the support from the crowd. Fan encouragement is the pat on the back on the players and they sure as hell need it! It can mend broken games, bring a sense of pride into the whole stadium and lift up the spirits of the teams, setting aside the opposite team’s competition.

Fan support has a huge factor to play on game day. The team can come out to roars of encouragement or it can be welcomed by half-attended, half-hearten Arsenal fans.

They call it “fan chants”. It consists of 20000 chants for more than 700 teams all over the world and it has an enormous deciding role to play. There are funny tunes, bizarre shouts, melodious versus from every city in every country. Whether it’s the finals or just a preliminary game, chanting has been incorporated in the game right from day 1. It’s not just the passes that help the team win. It’s also the way that the game sounds on that day.

The wacky head gear to give a wacky look to those sounds, face paints, the Finger all add a colorful joyous theme to every soccer match. Each respective team have their colors to look out for amongst the hundreds of fans cheering their hardest for the match. The waves of red or blue or yellow or whatever the color may be, add a persona to the once empty seats. Its only after those cheers, songs, music and colors, that a match feels like a match.

Of course there is one disappointed team that has to leave at the end of the day but the pom-poms and the streamers are brought back again in the next game.
