As a child I was told that the invention of the electric light destroyed the ghost, but it may also be that demolition is a more effective method.
As I was passing Highbury a week or so back I discovered the gates were open, and I couldn't resist taken a photo or two, but it was a sorry sight. I had to stretch my imagination to the limit to see where a once great stadium stood. As the photos demonstrate the concept of a "protected building" has been stretched in the extreme.
But that's capitalism for you - it sell dreams - not the reality. Surely it will be difficult to sell stories of ghosts in the main stands now?
