This is Arsenal’s last season at Highbury before they move to their new, state of the art stadium, and they are desperate to win the League in their last season there. So desperate they sold Patrick Vierra.
The “Gooners” completed an 11-1 aggregate score over us last season in the League, and their youth team beat us in the League Cup to boot, which was nice. So David Moyes will be going to Arsenal with the intention to gain some kind of revenge.
How to get there by car : Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station. Take the third left hand turn after the tube station, called Drayton Park. Go down this road and then turn right into Aubert Park and then left into Avenell Road. Street parking, although be wary of a residents only parking scheme, is in operation around the ground. It may perhaps be better to park further out of London around a tube station and get the tube to the ground.
