old trafford before they filled the quadrants in..i'm not that keen on it now cos the quadrants don't look right,they hump up in the middle or atleast it looks like it does and spoils the lines of the stadium imo...
ye i can not believe they did not think about the corners before they built all the top tiers at different gradients. i quite enjoyed turf moor too, burnleys ground as it was so....basic the away stand is a shed and the seats are wooden. dont get that often!
The Oval was good. My favourate ground is Old Trafford Cricket ground just because it's a good place to relax (lots of space).
Re football grounds, I've been to Vale Park and Gresty Road and the Stadiums where Middlesborough and Crystal Palace play, I thought they were all OK. The best that I have been to though is Villa Park.
How do you define "best"? The grounds I liked the most are probably in this order:
2. Trent Bridge
3. Wembley Stadium (as it was in 1992).
4. Millennium Stadium
5. Villa Park
6. City Ground, Nottingham
8. Recreation Ground, Bath (as it was in 1991).
9. Twerton Park
10. Manor Ground
...although the order would probably be different if you'd asked me the same question yesterday.
The old Cardiff Arm's Park was fantastic, if it counts. The best is probably Villa Park, with old trafford/emierites currently 3rd & 4th, I'd put fortress Twickenham 2nd, it is great from the inside (but a bit grey from the outside).
