Favourite/ least favourite away ground

Postby NottinghamWhite » 31 Oct 2017, 14:10

Which ground do you enjoy going to the most ? For me it's Loftus Road have always enjoyed my visits there. Back in the 1970's believe it or not it had one of the best atmospheres going. Least favourite Kenilworth Road it really is an absolute dump.

Yeah, Loftus Road is a proper old ground and reminds me of The Dell, too.

West Ham's atmosphere is the most toxic I've witnessed, though Millwall pushed them close.
The old Highbury really was quiet and the new Southampton ground is pretty flat too - so many families and no dedicated "yobbo" section, like our South Stand.

The best noise I've ever heard anywhere in the world is at St.James' Park, Newcastle. I think it's more to do with the roof design than their actual supporters - it seems to keep the noise in rather than letting it escape.
Portsmouth's Fratton Park is falling apart but the atmosphere is spectacular whenever I see them.
AC Milan was pretty amazing too and that wasn't even at capacity when I went there to see Celtic in a CL game.
Hamburg's very good - mostly (95%) home fans too, like a lot of European grounds.

Everton's normally lively too.

Craven Cottage, good craic from the home crowd. Goodison Park (biased :D )

Reading - devoid of atmosphere.

Always enjoyed the London trips although could be a bit dodgy at a few of them.
Also had some good visits to Everton including one memorable 18th birthday bash.

The Dell was aweful for seeing once the put the fences up, may as well used a brick wall in front of away fans.
Hate all seater stadiums big step backwards for atmosphere in my eyes.

The old Den, Cold Blow Lane, New Cross. Circu 1980's
Going in with the home fans so's i could watch all ashen-faced but secretly purrrrrrrrrring with pleasure every time the ball hit the back of their net.
I'm sure even "Harry-The-Dog" (R.I.P) may well have approved albeit in a begrudging kind of way. Afterall, it was Harry himself who according to the Panorama documetary of the time decided to hitch-hike alone on to Bristol Rovers game after the supporters coach that he and the rest of the "Bushwackers" were travelling on broke down on the M4 some place. A few hours later "The Dog" duly carried out his lone assault on the home end before being carried out himself.

Harry-The-Dog quotes:
"If some northern ponce had a go at me i'd put a ****ing glass in his 'ed, which is all very reasonable."
"A bit of football and a punchup that's what football is all abaaaaat."

IN NO WAY am i condoning football hooliganism with this post guys.

Footy grounds are no where near as good since all seater stadiums. What are people's fav. grounds now ( Ie. All seater stadiums) and best atmospheres. Always enjoyed the city ground but that might be my bias towards the night out after in their city.
