For those who haven’t visited the Emirates Stadium, or who may not have spent much time inspecting the stands, Arsenal have their trophies listed around the hoardings on the upper tier.
For example, in the background of the picture above you can just about make out 2005, 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2020, along with a representation of the FA Cup trophy next to each year, in reference to the trophies Arsenal won in those years.
Arsenal were awarded a special golden replica trophy for winning the Premier League title unbeaten in 2004, so Glen suggested the trophy on the hoarding could be gold as well.

Arsenal were quick to respond to Glen’s request, with Supporter Liaison Officer Mark Brindle emailing him to say: “Lovely idea we will get this organised. Thank you, it really shows that sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.”
It really does seem like a win for all parties. It’s a simple change, but one which nicely pays tribute to one of the biggest achievements in Arsenal’s history, and it shows the club are open to listening to the fans to make improvements like this.
With Manchester City losing to Liverpool at the weekend to end another year of teams trying and failing to go unbeaten, what better time to rub it in?
