I think you'll also find Arsenal soccer schools in places like Singapore. In fact, everywhere in the world except Highbury.

I remember when Cheddar cheese was being made everywhere in the world except Cheddar and one day a businessman brought it back to its origins as a boost to tourism. With luck, a like-minded businessman will want to bring football back to Highbury but if he leaves it too late all the land will have been snapped up for private use.

Has anyone ever suggested that an Arsenal sports centre would be hogged by Islington residents? The whole idea of a communal sports centre is to make it available to everyone. Grown men used to travel down from places like Hatfield to use the JVC/O2 Centre, and they'd be back here like a shot if it was replaced.

It doesn't stop there. Arsenal fans often come over from places like Sweden and the first thing they ask is whether it's worth bringing their kit to play at the Arsenal sports centre. I suppose the answer to these tourists is yes, so long as they are prepared to lie about their age and take a 16-mile bus journey along the Great Cambridge Road
