LITESPORT 44 Thursday, 24 September 2009 London Lite Video thrills in the radio car for night rider Button Charlie Georges final outing at Highbury CHARLIE GEORGE made his final appearance at Highbury yesterday -- in an exclusive picture for LiteSport. The former Arsenal great, 58, whose goal against Liverpool in the 1971 FA Cup Final clinched the double, was on the ball to mark the official reopening of the old stadium site as Highbury Square. Arsenal moved less than a mile to the Emirates Stadium in 2006, turning their former ground (right) into a unique residential development which officially opens today.

RE CAMPBELL (L&B 23/09) so Sol walks after one game at Notts County suggesting it didnt turn out right. Exactly what was he expecting from a League Two side who couldnt win a raffle? Georgie, N21 RE CAMPBELL (L&B 23/09) if Campbell thinks hes coming back to Spurs, then think again. Once a traitor etc etc! LaneBoy RE CAMPBELL (L&B 23/09) Harry has pulled off some strange signings in the past, but please not this one! Shelley RYAN (L&B 23/09) Mark Hughes calls Gary Neville a lunatic for running towards Man City fans to celebrate a goal. Thought that was acceptable at your club! Dave Perrin, EN1 VANESSA (L&B 22/09) who cares how many minutes get added on to help United Liverpool or Arsenal? Whatever it takes for Chelsea NOT to win the title must be done!

See Fergie keen to stick with his cup kids SIR ALEX FERGUSON has vowed to carry on giving youth a chance in the Carling Cup. After winning the tournament last season with a squad based on youngsters, Ferguson sees no reason why Manchester United should abandon that philosophy this term. Beating Wolves 1-0 at Old Trafford to book a fourth-round berth would have been able proof that the strategy is working. The fact Fabio was sent off for a professional foul, leaving United to complete the final hour with only 10 men, just emphasised it. The United boss said: It does excite me that I can give the young lads a chance in this competition. It is the only thing we can do. It is good for them to get the experience of playing at Old Trafford. It is a good breeding ground for young players. Elsewhere, Gabriel Agbonlahor continued his fine recent scoring run with the winner in Aston Villas 1-0 victory over Cardiff -- a classy backheel finish -- for his fourth goal in as many games. Fellow England hopeful James Milner smashed a penalty against the woodwork just before the hour mark. WHILE footballers are being carpeted for simulation, Jenson Buttons relying on it to bring him nearer the world title. He has spent hours in the build-up to Sundays Singapore Grand Prix sitting in front of a sophisticated video game that takes him round the circuit. I spent some time at the factory last week driving the circuit on our simulator, which helps with track layout, gears and down- force levels. So we are well prepared and looking forward to getting the weekend under way, he said. With Rubens Barrichello, his Brawn GP team-mate, only 14 points behind in the drivers championship standings, Button is determined to improve on last years 12th- place finish in the night race at the Marina Bay circuit. Driving under the lights was great fun, with the visibility pretty good, although some corners such as turns one and five wereabitdark,whichmadeitmoredifficult to judge your braking distances, Button said. The circuit is pretty challenging and although it has a stop-start layout, which isnt usually my favourite type of circuit, I enjoyed driving it. Barrichellohastaken22pointstoButtons ten in the past three races and is looking to continue his good form. I really enjoyed the circuit [last year] as it felt like a proper street circuit with public roads, bumps, barriers and passing some of the famous city landmarks, the 37-year-old Brazilian said. Its very narrow in places, and you can feel quite enclosed, particularly with the bright floodlights shining down. Its also a very slow track, and with so many corners, you have to maintain your concentration at all times. SebastianVettelandMarkWebber,theRed Bull team-mates, stand 26 and 28.5 points adrift of Button and their chances of catch- ing him up in the standings could be hit by a major upgrade to the Brawn GP cars this weekend. Ross Brawn said: We will be running the car in a high aerodynamic downforce con- figuration which should bring another good step in performance. DRIVERS CHAMPIONSHIP 1. JENSONBUTTON(GB)BRAWN 80PTS 2.
