A Desmond at the Emirates Stadium!

The Emirates Stadium before the Premier League match between Arsenal and Hull City

Blogger Rob Tuffnell ticks off a second major ground in a week! This time making the journey down to the bright lights of London following Hull City for the away fixture against Arsenal. Ground: The Emirates Stadium 51/92 Game: Arsenal 2-2 Hull City Date: 18/10/2014 Thoughts on the ground: Fantastic ground; impressive from outside and in – lots of legroom and good views from the away end. Let down slightly by lack of atmosphere (I’m sure it can get noisy when the home fans get going though) and weirdly they seem to employ people to wave Arsenal flags behind each… Read more »

Far from a thriller at the Villa (Park)!

Looking towards the Holte End at Villa Park

Blogger pb1uk takes in a spot of Monday night Premier League action with a trip to Villa Park for the visit of Premier League high flyers Southampton. Ground: Villa Park (ticked off previously) 46/92 Game: Aston Villa 1-1 Southampton Date: 24/11/2014 Over the years i’ve managed to get to Villa Park a number of times, this being my eighth and my third following my team Southampton. Despite our league position I travelled in pessimistic mood as my previous trips with Saints had been far from fruitful. Both 1-0 defeats, with first half goals from centre backs; Gareth Southgate on my… Read more »

Tim Dove ticks off Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium

Colchester United Weston Homes Community Stadium

Blogger Tim Dove makes his way down to Towie country to tick off Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium. Ground: Weston Homes Community Stadium 86/92 Game: Colchester United 1-2 Gillingham Date: 26/12/2014 Thoughts on the ground: Having been to the old Layer Road back in 1997 then my visit to the Weston Homes Community Stadium has been long overdue. As this has been a recent and out-of-town ground development then my expectation wasn’t especially high for this one. However, as I drove toward the ground then my hopes were raised as it looked more than ‘just’ an oval bowl. The… Read more »

Brighton fan Kieran ticks off Fulham’s Craven Cottage

Fulham v Brighton in the Championship

Brighton fan Kieran makes his blogging debut on taking in a trip to Craven Cottage the home of Fulham football club as the managerless Seagull’s look to turn around their poor first half of the season. Ground: Craven Cottage 27/92 Game: Fulham 0-2 Brighton & Hove Albion Date: 29/12/2014 Thoughts on the ground: I was very impressed with the ground as it is different to what I am used to with the Amex. The Johnny Haynes stand was very unusual but good. On the outside, it just looked like a row of houses but had a small café in… Read more »
