Cologne fans make themselves heard in London before Arsenal clash

Cologne supporters are making the most of their first European match in 25 years against Arsenal.

It's fair to say that Cologne fans are thoroughly excited about the prospect of taking on Arsenal in the Europa League.

Indeed, on the day of the game, it was reported that every bank in the German city had ran out of British currency due to the influx of fans making the trip to the Emirates Stadium.

And so, numbering some 20,000 strong, the travelling supporters created quite a scene as they marched through the streets of London before the match.

The fans can be seen trudging up Noel Street, which is just off Soho Square, some three or four miles due south of Arsenal's home ground. That's one heck of a walk!

At that rate, they should just about make it to their seats by the time the second half kicks off.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
