It is April 2010. Arsenal are beating Spurs 2-0 in the FA Cup Semi-Final with five minutes to play. The supporters break into the traditional chant: "We're on our way to Ardwick, we're on our way to Ardwick". A rebuilt Wembley as a new national stadium would be great. But the mystical significance of the name is just chance. If the twin towers had been built a little to the east, the chant might have been: "We're on our way to Neasden".

The North dominates most of the sports that would be played in the stadium. So we believe it would be better to make a fresh start with a new stadium in Manchester.
