HARD-nosed businessman Graham Westley is taking his team to Highbury for the biggest day in Farnborough Football Club's history.

He was said by critics to have chosen money instead of romance as the club prepared to take on mighty Arsenal in next week's FA Cup fourth round.

Not only has he given up the chance of a giant- killing shock by switching the tie to the cupholder's Highbury ground.

But he has upset the media by signing an exclusive agreement with the Sun for player interviews.

The two decisions will add up to a massive pay day for the Conference minnows - some say it could be as much as £500,000.

But it has turned what would have been the glamour tie of the round into a one-sided match which will be of less interest to independent football fans.

One Farnborough supporter said: "The club should adopt the Abba song "Money, Money, Money" as its signature tune."

Mr Westley, the club's manager and owner, said he had decided to switch the game to Highbury after discussions with Arsenal. "They put it very nicely and asked if we would be able to guarantee everyone's safety and security," he said.

Last week, however, a Hampshire police spokesman said they would have been content for the match to have been played at Farnborough.

"The ground has a capacity of about 4,500," he said. "The crowd would have been limited to near that number through ticketing, and there should have been no problem."
