    First game at Highbury was when Arsenal beat Man United 3-1. I think this was in 2000 or 2001. Can't remember.

    My first game was back in oo 97/98ish when i was around 9 years old.
    Me and my dad were in the North Bank watching the arse beat Villa 2-1 or 3-2, i cant remember exactly, but i remember singing 'ian wright wright wright' and weirdly the only scorer i remember was dwight yorke...hmm anyway it was brilliant.
    I used to only go to a game every other season because i was younger and my dad could never get tickets, but now were red members and have been to like 4 or 5 games this season, but its still not enough!
    I am grateful for all the time i have spent within highburys walls, but shes like a drug!

    My only Highbury game was against Fulham, we won 4-1, I think.
    Henry scored that goal where it came back off the post and hit him on the shins. And van Bronkhurst did his cruciate.
    It was also really cold.

    Arsenal v Ipswich, my Grandad took me, must have been the 94/95 season. Merson and an Ian Wright hat trick, what a great way to start things off!

    I lost my Highbury virginity in September 2002, a month after my 18th Birthday.

    We lost 2-1 to Auxerre, but it was Pires' comeback match. I remember the Auxerre fans being very loud, but the biggest cheer of the night was when Bobby got off the bench to warm up.

    Kanu scored our goal.

    America, that's where he's from. Why does the letter 'U' change to 'you'? Mods, you're mucking this up. All because you don't want us to Write Man you. :roll:

    Probably because of text language rules.

    Arsenal 3-0 Crystal Palace

    Think it was 1992.

    Dickov, Campbell and Wrighty all scored, sat in the West Lower.

    Arsenal v 'boro 1975-76 season, we won 2-1, don't remember who scored but i think brian kidd got one and alan ball played...we were a bit crap for a couple of next game was 1-0 against sheffield united, liam brady scored but the crowd was only 14,000, lowest we had since the 1960's.

    Amazing to think as a kid i got excited about them at all really.

    4-1 win v Luton in March or April 1983. Woodcock scored - can't remember the others. Sat high in the East Stand - still got the ticket somewhere.

    Only other time was also v Luton in December 1986 - won 3-0.

    Haven't replied before, but couldn't help but reminisce about that wonderful day. Only been to one match, and what a first, and last, match to see at Highbury. December 26 2001, Arsenal Chelsea. The tickets cost a fortune, the seats were right up the back, we were one down at half time, but nothing like singing 2-1 to the Arsenal on the way back...

    Arsenal V Liverpool.. It was the first game of the season, I can't remember the year, it may have been 1986.. I was still a kid and my cousin took me, we were standing in the North Bank terraces.. I was still a little nipper and I have to admit I could see **** all, and because it was still August it was boiling hot and the north bank was packed.. There were times, especially when there were surges,that I was quite scared..

    Anyway we lost 2-1, Steve Nicol scored the winner in the last minute..
