    My first Arsenal game at Highbury was a rather sobering one, it was against Newcastle in April 1989, the day of the Hillsborough disaster.

    All I can remember now about the day is that Marwood scored (can't remember the goal mind), Newcastle equalising in injury time but it being disallowed, but mainly the talk about what had happended at Hillsborough. I was only 7 but hearing about people being crushed to death at an event which was effectively the same as I was at was still a very powerful and sad moment in my life.

    Even worse, my mum saw the red scarfs on the television and for a few minutes thought my dad and I were caught up in it. It was not until she came with me to a couple of games last season that she was happy with me going to matches at all, let alone by myself!

    Dont know if any of you were into all the designer clobber, but back in the day (and still now) we always had to try our hardest to have the best possible clothes. This meant day trips to france and germany to get the newest sports brands, or weekends in italy to get the latest designer tags before they reach english shores. Great days.
    Anyway, on with my story.....
    Me and another gooner went to millwall with cardiff city as we are mates with some of the cardiff lads. Me and the lads drove to the ground, when we parked up we were "greeted" by a mob of millwall. About 10 of them approached the 5 of us and suddenly stopped. One of em looks at my mates brand new munchen adidas trainers he had just bought from germany. He says "nice clobber, respect to that, might see you in the ground" then contently him and his mates walk off. The 5 of us, thinking the trainers had just saved our lives continued the walk to the ground. Then at half time my mate decides to take a walk around the stadium (as you do at millwall :roll: ) he comes back with his face bloody and only wearing his socks. We asked him what happened to his shoes, he replied "i bumped into our friends from outside" :lol:

    I remember once when i was young the match was on tele and we were out all day and night. So fortunately the folks decide to end the night at a popular bar. We had to queue up for over an hour to get in but fortunately in the background threw the window i could just see the arsenal. I spent the whole hour hopping up and down trying to see in threw the window which was just abit too high for me to see whilst on tip toes. My legs were knackered by the time we got in the pub but at least i got to see arsenal.

    also when i was away down south, two seasons ago, it was the game when we beat leeds 4-1 at elland road, we didn't have foxtel in the house so i went down to the pub, got in, told them to change the channel to fox sports, watched about 80minutes before i got kicked out for being under age.
