After watching the Man City v PSG game in the pub last night the chat got around to other British teams (as it does) and the subject of Arsenal came up. Now there is a fellow in there who usually throws in some footy trivia and last night he said that Arsenals previous ground wasn't called Highbury but was actually called Arsenal Stadium. Now this chap is also known as a bit of a wind-up merchant, so is there any truth in his statement?
