Best/worst sports ground

Postby Fidel » Sun Feb 08, 2004 8:31 pm

Today, On Livingston's cup adventure I visited City Park as we played non-league Spartans. With one stand (condemned in 1974 due to asbestos) and 4 grassy banks, portaloos and portakabins for changing rooms it really was the pits. A good fun day out though to a silly little ground. The pitch too was terrible.
The best ground I have visited is the Lokomotiv Stadium in Moscow - high tech and fancy.

What's your best/worst sports ground?
any funny stories....

Being a Leeds fan, Elland Road for me. However I have been to Ibrox a few times and it was quite impressive too. As for the worst ground well I would have to say Bloomfield Road (Blackpool) before it was decided to redevelop it. Old wooden stands with uncomfortable wooden seats to sit on. The whole place just oozed of rot and despair. However now they have redeveloped two sides and it is fantastic. It is almost up to Premiership standards. Do you think the two Dundee sides should groundshare as their current stadia are so close together?
:D

And there's nothing you can do,
There is One you can turn to,
His name is Jesus, He loves you.

Don't look before you leap, you'll only decide to sit down.

What's wrong with Old Trafford, or is it just the team that you do not like?

Acutally, I couldn't care less if Dundee just go into extinction as they have told me that they won't renew my contract as they can't afford to keep "players like me". What does that mean?

Well I live quite near Twickenham Rugby Stadium and got the opportunity to go on the pitch before the game started. It was an England game so the atmosphere was amazing. I was lucky enough to be standing on the grass when everyone was signing swing low sweet chariot. It was so amazing. I think that that has to be one of the most memorable things I have ever heard. :D

It's a good sports ground though.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

Just remember to keep smiling!

Two words for you:

SKY DOME!
HE has all the answers

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.
