One to visit, about which they've been making a fuss on TalkSPORT this afternoon

http://www.sportbible.com/football/news ... t-20180504

You enter through the crocodile's head, apparently....

(Erm, no thanks :-D )

FWIW - at least 339, including 231 with Stourbridge.

Tonight will make it 232 with Stourbridge, but still 339 in total.

Good man, though no-one should have to go to St +ndr+ws more than once

:twisted:

Four times now, but it's taken me 30-plus years, and the last visit was 26 years ago before last night.

Birmingham City slotted neatly into the list between Bilston Town and Bishop Auckland.

Just think, some poor souls go there every other week during the season

:roll: :twisted: :-D

I chalked up my 84th ground last night and updated my list on football ground map.com

At the same time I realised that I’d missed Mile Oak off my list.

Mile Oak's ground is a housing estate now..... perhaps I shouldn't have said that...

the Central Ground in Northwich where Wilton used to play is now the site of a Sainsbury’s - ever the optimist!

Coincidently, The Drill Field where Northwich Victoria originally played is also a housing estate.

Isn't Wilton in Oxfordshire, or somewhere darn saarf?

Don't confuse me, I'm old

Fair enough, I didn't think to check on Google Earth :(
I know that the Mile Oak pub was demolished and replaced with housing so thought the same had happened with the ground as the Club disbanded in 2010. Have they reformed?

Don't confuse him - he's old.

There's nothing here about a new club:

There is a picture of Mile Oak Rovers' ground on the footballgrounmap.com website but it was probably taken some years ago. The picture of Witton's Central Ground is obviously more recent as it shows no trace of the ground, only a supermarket.

Meanwhile, here's another one I haven't done, though I did see them at both Eastville and Twerton Park....

Thought I'd count up my "92" list. Surprised myself that I've been to as many as 24!

Mind you, Peterborough was for an FA Sunday Cup Final, Wimbledon was to see a Kingstonian game nearly 30 years ago, Forest was for an England U19 match in the early 90s, and there are a few more like that too. The only ones I've added in recent years have been thanks to our Cup runs - Plymouth, Stevenage and Wycombe. I've lost more than I've gained through clubs relocating.

Only ever been to one Premier League game, and I'm proud to say I've never paid to watch one. I got a freebie at the Hawthorns for a game v Sunderland, and it wasn't even worth paying nothing to watch. Neither team had a shot and Sunderland won 1-0 with an og. And they say it's the best League in the World...

I had a freebie at The Hawthorns once (indeed I had two tickets as of the preceding day but couldn't find any fool, erm, anyone to join me...)

0-0 v Portsmouth

This would have been before football was invented in 1992 but yes, we can both vouch for what a let-down "top-tier football" can be

How on earth regular followers justify the obscene amounts of money and time they spend on it (plus having kick-off times at any time and on any day of the week) is beyond me... it were 2/6d in at Villa Park when I were a lad.... ;) :-D
