If you’re into melodrama and tragicomedy then Arsenal are great value for money.
But if you’re into stress-free, rewarding football then you may want to shop elsewhere.
A recent study has concluded that the Gunners are the most expensive team to watch in all of Europe.
The average day-out for an Arsenal fan sets them back an £74.09 per game, says research undertaken by UEFA.
Based on factors including ticket prices and the cost of food and drink, Arsenal easily top the pile of Europe’s priciest club.
The North Londoners are followed by Chelsea in the standings – with a day at Stamford Bridge setting you back an average of £68.71.
Spanish giants Real Madrid come in third, costing £55.91 per match – still nearly £20 cheaper than a day out at the Emirates.
Meanwhile, Liverpool (£55.68) come in fourth, followed by Bavarian giants Bayern Munich (£54.92).
Man United are the fourth-most expensive in the Premier League and sixth overall at £53.41 per game.
UEFA conclude that Arsenal made the most from ticket sales in 2016/17, raking in £102million.
That’s despite the fact the Emirates has a considerably lower capacity than the likes of Old Trafford and the Nou Camp.
Perhaps Arsenal fans can be forgiven for their criticisms?
£74.09 a game to watch that lot is too harsh a punishment for any crime.
