Made of TIMBER ??? I'm surprised you were allowed to do that after the Bradford City disaster.

And to Banjo, didn't the "KEANE" on the irish flag give you a little clue ?

As for the Polish ground - I bet there are many grounds in EE countries where a guy like you, ignorant of what happens around the world, would feel his life threatened. No offence intended.

In which case I think we made a terrible mistake accepting Slavs into the European Union, when they would threaten the life of a man, fpr lacking a detailed knowledge of the history of stadiums in the Eastern Bloc. What worries me more is the way you said it with such pride, as if this uncontrollable Slavic Temperament is something to be proud of, in the civilised world and those attempting to mimic the civilised world, we do not send such aggressive posts to a forumer in a minor dispute about a stadium.

What about all the other Irish flags that have been flown there years before Keane even joined and are still being flown long after he's left?

I remember watching Celtic play Manchester United in the CL on the tv (both home and away) and I saw many Irish flags being flown and I can't remember seeing one Scottish flag, which is a bit odd seeing as they're a Scottish and British club and not an Irish one.

They really do seem an odd bunch up that way.

The Old Firm fans (alot of them anyway) are stupid and think that each club represents another country (Celtic - Ireland, Rangers - England).

The flag is not only for Keane - it has been around for decades at Parkhead.

Think thats great look at (supposedly) the World's largest camera flash Mexican wave at the pre ceremony entertainment at the Closing of the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

it was far more spectacular in person at the MCG.

I think you're not getting my point. It's about respect, especially if one does not have background knowledge.

How can you feel offended - his words are even more offending! Are they something to be proud of? And what about his attempt to mimic somebody who have not been fortunate enough to remain on the other side of the iron curtain?

Knock it off!

Well, considering that 18 % of our support come over from Ireland for every home game making them Irish, it's not so odd, is it ?

Sorry if the tri-colour seems to trouble you. Obviously Everton aren't the only team in blue you have feelings for (that is very apparent). And while we're at it, I've seen the same flag at Anfield and Old Trafford for English league games. Do you have a problem with them too ?

Hey, I have a question. Some time ago I came accross a pic of a ground, I think the team was Edinburgh City FC or something. There were no stands but slopes on all four sides of the pitch. Have you heard of it, and if yes, could you post some pics?

Well at grounds like Anfield and Old Trafford you might see the odd Irish flag same as you might see the odd Greek flag or Welsh flag but the predominant flag would be the flag of St George or a club flag whereas at Celtic, the Irish flag is the only one you seem to see (even making murals with it).

If only 18% of the Celtic support is Irish that would make around 80% British so you'd think around 80% of the flags on show would be the Scottish or British flag. It's as though these people are ashamed of their nationality and want to be from another country.

And yet you always hear about them wanting to come and play in England and not go and move to Ireland.

Baffling.

I think you made a terrible mistake in interpretation... or I did, we shall see.

That's how I see Zaro's words about life threatening:

Just because someone FEELS his life is threatened doesn't mean it really is. But he feels it is because he doesn't know how things work in a different country (ignorance?). For example I got a few Scots to a Krakow "holy war" game. They left in half time cause they thought a war will go on at the stands. Meanwhile 15 000 fans were enjoying the game with some minor disorders at the stands- almost no one leaving before 90th minute.

And honestly- I prefer that wild, sometimes really chaotic atmosphere to the sitting crowds starting a chant once every 20 minutes and boasting if they manage to make it work one time every game against "some Barcelona". I remember Wisla's game against Austrian Mattersburg SV (after games against Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter, Schalke etc.) and whole 90 minutes we had a festival of jumping singing and jumping...

If you call yourself a supporter you shouldn't be able o speak after a game and so on. All for your team. And that I think is the value that Zaro embraced and tried to remind others of...

After having read your thought I'm realy happy that no decisions were left to you, because using "Slavic Temperament" and so on is... pathetic. Tell 200 000 university students from Krakow that their city is not civilised and they will laugh at you. That is ignorance. And in this post too- no offence intended, just got a bit emotional. Because stadium is not only architecture and especially not in a thread like this...

Dartford Football Club plays in Ryman Football League in England just in case you wanted to know.
Like it. Very original and deserves a place on the previous thread about 'best small stadiums'

I hope those panels at the rear of the seats/terrace are strong - I can imagine a few clearances/missed shots, thumping them pretty hard at that close range from the pitch.

I thought i's not only tons of concrete and steel that makes a favorite stadium. It's how it lives on matchdays as well, isn't it?
And that's what makes for example Sukru Saracoglu superior to Allianz Arena in my view of "favoritness"

Believe it or not. There are plenty of Rangers suuporters who are more proud to think they are ENGLISH rather than Scottish. That is why they support the Union.

I know a poor country like Poland is never going to have great stadiums like we get in Britain but I am still slightly surprised at the state of that one you posted.
You sound like an American in a Europe v USA thread. CABJ's ground isn't all too modern either. But it is all about atmosphere. Who cares that there are 70,000 seats. Who cares that you can order a drink and a burger from your chair. Who cares the stadium should be extremely modern. We care about football, not about money.
