Thoughts on the Bet365 Stadium

Stoke City v Hull City at the Bet365 Stadium in the Premier League

Welcome to blog to Ben Thompson. The Gillingham fan is making very good progress with his 92 and shares some thoughts on a recent trip to the Potteries… Ground 75/92: The Bet365 Stadium Stoke City 3-1 Hull City 15/04/2017 Thoughts about the ground I thought the Bet365 Stadium was a really nice ground and on a very scenic route. It’s a bit of a walk to the ground from the station, but most of the walk I took (as the weather wasn’t bad) was along the canal; nice to see some ducks and boats! The ground is nice without… Read more »

Highbury, Piebury and the Emirates Stadium

Outside the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal

Blogger and co-founder Pete reviews his trip to the Capital to tick ground number 72 off his 92. Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium was the destination as Hull City revitalised under Marco Silva were the visitors. Ground: The Emirates Stadium (72/92) Game: Arsenal 2-0 Hull City Date: 11/02/2017 Journey South I set off on my journey south just after 8 in the morning. With the threat of poor weather conditions and a 12:30 kick off I wanted to make sure I got into London in time to soak up the pre-match atmosphere. Being an early kick off I think this worked… Read more »

Blogger Michael Pilcher heads to Humberside as Hull entertained Birmingham with both teams chasing down Brighton at the summit of the Championship. Ground: KC Stadium 74/92 Game: Hull City 2-0 Birmingham City Date: 24/10/2015 After two months of no new grounds – nothing ticked off since Sunderland in August – a planned October half-term up North meant I had a chance to get back on the 92 trail. The trouble was, the weekend fell on a wedding anniversary – 7 years and counting – and so serious some bribery was going to be in order. But this required bribery ultimately… Read more »

Dan White reviews the KC Stadium

Before kick off Hull City v QPR Premier league

Blogger Dan White recalls heading to the KC Stadium, the home of Hull City to take in his first Premier League game in 10 years. Ground: KC Stadium 6/92 Game: Hull City 2-1 Queens Park Rangers Date: 21/02/2016 Thoughts on the ground: As I made my way to the stadium, I couldn’t help but realise that if you don’t know where you’re going and you can’t find a sign post directing you to the ground you will get lost. This happened to me. However, I managed to find my way to the ground by following posters for a wrestling show… Read more »

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 »

Anfield fails to live up to the hype…

Hull / Liverpool half and half shirt

Blogger Rob Tuffnell makes his debut on the 92 blog reporting back on ticking the world renowned Anfield off his 92. Ground: 50/92 Game: Liverpool 0-0 Hull City Date: 25/10/2014 Thoughts on the ground: An iconic English ground, the Hillsborough Memorial and walk via those famous gates make the day special. Atmosphere wise there was absolutely nothing from the Liverpool fans, most of whom seemed to be tourists. Expected much more on that front. Inside the ground is pretty much what you’d expect from an older ground; slightly cramped, tight concourse, but ok view from behind the goal (that is… Read more »
