Used to love going to the old Shrewsbury Stadium.
Bramall Lane ... not a massive, massive ground but, on it's day (or night), a wonderful atmosphere.
Bramall Lane was good too.
Etihad for me.
Great city to booze in (yes, I’m very biased) then 5 mins in tram or 15 mins walk to ground.
3 miles to M60.
Decent ground and fans that will try to make a noise. Their singing end is next to away fans too.
Good pre match at the ground if that is your thing.
Right on tram network for park and ride.
Good rail network
And less then 20 minutes to get home for me afterwards
Haha! I love it so much, that I spelled it wrong... what an idiot... edited.
You've never been there with the Wolves !
The Old Show Ground- Scunthorpe, wonderful old ground with the away end a replica of the North Bank !
3 miles to M60 but teks ya 60 minutes to get there.
I think I've said this before (as if things are never repeated on here!!!???) that the lovely thing about Darlo back in the day was you had to walk across the cricket ground to get in. If it was a nice Aug/Sep day I'd always get there early and have an hour watching cricket before the game! Funnily enough who on here watched a bit of cricket outside the King Power this season?
Rhos you devil, you've reminded me of 2 old, forgotten, well loved chants tonight - the above 10,20,30 one and the 'Peter Knowles', 'Burnside' one which used to reverberate from North Bank to South Bank in the old Molineux. They really do take me back!
10 20 30 40 50 or more,Coventry supporters lying dead on the floor,80 screws died trying to win that spree,the day the north bank took Coventry.Was sung for a few years.
You follow em on twitter? Class
Ninian Park was brilliant for atmosphere.
1975-76, just before the Liverpool home game when we got relegated, was when I recall Wolves more or less 'taking' the Coventry West End.
In the Boothen End 1974-75 but that was a dreadful day with 4 Stoke fans getting stabbed, some reports of up to 7 infact.
Routinely a few hundred went in the Brummie Road at Albion, but never saw it being taken or Wolves staying in there for long.
Hooliganism................. I hate it!!
Potato and butter in a pie pastry, it's divine!
Loved the victoria ground. Away end was seats up top and terrace on bottom facing that huge home terrace blasting out Delilah. Was always a good away day even if though we rarely won.
Milmoor...dunno why just loved it proper football ground that stick ya ****ing soulless corporate led identikit bowls up ya ****!
Yeah Peterborough when the terrace was open was a great day
Good shout, not as good recently now you only get about 2k tickets was always better when we had the upper (also wooden seats) and then (if sold) the lower. Took some good followings there late 90s early/mid 2000s.
I also like Hillsborough (just a shame I've not bothered going since their new regime brought in crazy ticket prices).
Preston was good when the away end was the standing end and it still had a home standing end. Been since and its all a bit samey isn't it.
Handy for Blackpool on the **** though.
Bramall Lane, I've been 4 times,never seen us bloody win there,but its always a good atmosphere there.
I remember us taking about 5,000 there one Easter Monday and filling both tiers behind the goal.Osborn scored a free-kick for us in a 1-1 draw.
Segregation at most conference clubs and a lot of conference north clubs. Been segregated at evo stik north and prem games as well.
Going Leamington next saturday, what sort of crowds do they get?
My first trip there that, I was about 14 so 1998.
Scary to think that's been 20 years!
True, but that was when it started.
Leamington get 500-700 realistically
Probably a bit close to home but ever since I was a boy I have always enjoyed Villa Park. Didnt last year though.
Gay Meadow for me, though Ashton Gate, Forest & Charlton are also ones I like.
I don't mind Crewe either, I love how close the stands are to the pitch, its like watching a match down the park. Really good chippy over the road as well.
Blackburn was always a decent day out to, recall a sort of fanzone on pub carpark, by away end. Also remember some queue by someones front room window, waited 1/2 hr once for best home made pie ive ever tried.
The Etihad for me.
Beautiful ground, walking distance from the city centre.
Big fan of St. James's too.
I was singing this to myself after Rhos mentioned it in his post last night. I also remember singing on the train as we approached Cov - ' oh we'll all **** together on Coventry City's sky blue' - and repeat ad nauseum!!!! Can well remember the tune but not the song? Oh how we had fun back in the day when we were young and carefree!!!!!!!!
I must admit I enjoyed Crawley and Stevenage away even tho we day win
I remember driving down to Swindon a few years ago with a pretty awful hangover. Stopped on the way down and had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. On arriving at Swindon the away fans were encouraged to go to the adjoining cricket pavilion for a pre game drink and the whole surroundings and atmosphere were very civilised. Swindon have a nice little ground and if my memory serves me well, I even believe we won. All in all a very enjoyable day and it has left me with very fond memories of Swindon.
