The Last Games At Highbury

Postby The GFP » Tue Nov 27, 2012 7:35 am

Ever wondered what the last game played at Highbury was for all competitions, well here they are :

Premier League - Arsenal 4-2 Wigan Athletic (7th May 2006)

Division 1 - Arsenal 5-1 Southampton (2nd May 1992)

Division 2 - Arsenal 7-0 Nottingham Forest (4th April 1915)

FA Cup - Arsenal 2-1 Cardiff City (7th January 2006)

League Cup - Arsenal 2-1 Wigan Athletic (24th January 2006)

Champions League - Arsenal 1-0 Villareal (19th April 2006)

Cup Winners Cup - Arsenal 3-2 Sampadoria (6th April 1995)

UEFA CUP - Arsenal 1-0 Lens (6th April 2000)

European Super Cup - Arsenal 0-0 AC Milan (1st February 1995)

Testimonial - Arsenal 6-0 England XI (17th May 2004)


I was at every one of them games that i was alive for and i still have the programmes


The only ones that ive not included are the England full & U21, reserve game, ladies games & FA Cup semi finals as ive just done 1st team games, and no Makita Cup or any other friendly cups or war time games

There is a chance ive got one of these wrong as im only usually right 97.3% of the time
Total Games 404, Arsenal Games 346, Cats 5, Cars 1.5, Kids 1, Merkins 0

Arsenal v Sampdoria. Have we ever played a tie of European football like that since (or before)?

Damn right. All I can here is Brian Moore (I think) screaming "And they're not worried about the one that didn't count now," and then Bouldy scored again 2 minutes later.

I loved it, i got to go about 10 times, was young and couldn't afford tickets very often!
the atmosphere in the northbank was the best!

The emirates isn't a scratch on Highbury!

If only they'd seen the sense of safe standing back in the 80's, then Highbury would still be here.
