what makes a football ground?

Having this discussion with friends and the usual about size closeness to pitch atmosphere and of course style of stadium and if you could choose a ground to have a game on would which one....this of course threw up the usual the old Boleyn as was expected but this guy from Norway who heard us talking said you can have all the great stadiums in the world and you can keep them because for him this ground in Norway just takes your breath away and after seeing it i admit i would like go see it for real and have a kick about on it.....any others you know of come close?

Yes beautiful setting! But no fans,bare concrete surroundings,can only get there via boat (canals)! Only amateur football is played there.does that sound familiar?!
Couldn't help that 1 dartford!!;)

Not sure 65 that we are that good! One day we will have our own stadium again, probably about the same size with less than 1K of us watching a game in the old Southern League :o).

On another subject...What do you think of the Hammers United? Certainly gaining some momentum. The problem is if its not GSB then who? We had this Fake News story last week with the Saudi's and Red Bull wanting to buy us... chuckle!

But agree with you on another thread wherever we played we would have at least 25 000 die hard fans.i think the protests will gain momentum & the one thing sugo dont like is not being liked!! I still believe that one day when they are gone the westham support will be United again & can start on a clean sheet

LOL!!!!! 65,that sums that up,there is better still,a triangle piece of green opposite what was the Hawbush Pub at the end of Barley Lane as you come off of Eastern Avenue,i used to have a kickabout on there as a kid many years ago,that will be all we need soon.
