I sit in GR1. Its in line with the pen spot at the Broomloan end, same as where that pic is taken just a lot further back.

I know what you mean about FF. Same threads every day. Hate McNee, hate Spiers hate Lennon etc etc.
Its just I looked through a picture thread the other day, and saw some nice pictures for the first time - a few of them were in your post above.

Anyway I prefer gersforum.co.uk myself.

Yer, ditto. It's never been a stadium that's excited me at all. I mean, when you look at it you think 'ok, yes, it's a stadium....next'. It doesn't really have anything special about it that makes it stand out, and no disrespect if that's your personal choice, but in a thread entitled the 'Best Stadium in the World', it really doesn't belong here, not when you compare it to the likes of Wembley, Bernabeu, Old Trafford, Allianz, Reliant....etc etc etc.

And why does Old Trafford belong here? The place is a bin, and other than a high capacity - it has nothing going for it.

I agree with Bubomb that Ibrox is much better than Old Trafford. Ibrox is an incredibly classy stadium.

Regarding this argument as to what stadium is the best in the world, I think there should be categories e.g. football stadiums should be rated separately from olympic, or baseball arena's! And the same for each stadium category as you cannot in my opinon make an accurate comparison between a football and baseball stadium for example, as they have two different functions.

Arsenal's new Emirates stadium is looking magnificent and will definately one of the best (if not the best) football stadium's in the world when it opens. Although I must agree that Real Madrid's Satiago Bernabau is a simply magnificent stadium. Not too keen on Old Trafford, but I must say it looks much nicer now the corners have been filled in - also the capacity of 76,000 will be great for the fans!

I think inherent in everyones posts are their sport of choice. Baseball fans have picked baseball stadiums, whilst football fans have chosen soccer stadiums and so on.

It was a factor in my own choice, any stadium containing a track or anything other than a rectangular field was ommitted from my thoughts. I think though that the cross section of different sports makes the thread more interesting, as I for one am seeing stadiums for baseball that I would not normally see owing to my lack of interest in the sport.
I can however appreciate some of the stadiums that the sport is played in.

Why do your'll keep on banning bubomb? his funny, & he makes valid points. Well to answer eddyk's question on why I said Wembley is the best when its not even finished as yet. Well just look at it, when my dad went passed there last year, the pics he took it, the sheer size & magnitude of the place will automaticly make you think that its the leader of the stadiums, & the arch is the crown to signify its glory, the old wembley was the temple of soccer, the new one is the hevan of soccer!

Including Ibrox in a thread about the best stadiums in the world is an absolute joke. It's a decent stadium, no more, no less.

It’s all about opinions. Everybody is entitled to an opinion…unfortunately. Yes, these days even poor people are allowed opinions!! Being a wealthy Scottish land owner, obviously the timeless fine oaks, hand carved murals and marble staircases of Ibrox are going to appeal to me. Whereas some working class scumbag cockney from some dreadful ‘estate’ in London is going to be more impressed with the shite cheap rubbish facades/interiors of the new Wembley or some other modern crap stadium. These poor unfortunate souls wouldn’t even know fine oak or marble if it fell on their daft little heads. They are raised with shopping centers and retail parks with PC Worlds, Argos and McDonalds, and so they can relate to modern stadiums that look like these common retail parks that common people shop in. They cannot relate to the finer things in life and don’t know any better than drinking their fizzy coke and eating their common little cheeseburgers. They really are more to be pitied than anything else!

On matchday, I spend my time relaxing in the great lounges of Ibrox, enjoying a pheasant lunch whilst chatting with the other gentlemen in the club. The idea of having to mix with common people is simply frightful!!!

I should also add that contrary to popular belief…..Big Jock Knew!!


Welcome to Ibrox (no riff raff please) –

They should rename it 'The Ibrox Happy Eater'.

I think it's great what Rangers have done to that stadium and it is maybe how Goodison Park should look like today if Everton had shown the same foresight and imagination Rangers have, and some of the interior features are marvellous. However, the lounge with the awful orangey plastic sofas and the blue cushions looks like the sort of place Arthur Daley used to frequent in the 1980s and the blue bath/shower room is a tad embarrassing.

Scotland's finest stadium. More impressive than Highbury in terms of heritage and tradition. Deserving of a place on a Greatest Stadium In The World thread?

Don't make me laugh.
