    What's the atmosphere like when you play Motherwell on a Tuesday night and the stadiums half empty pal?

    Not the same by a long shot pal. Much like the EPL games although the Green Brigade ensure there is still an atmosphere at every game Celtic play.

    On Champions League nights it's the best in europe though. . . an atmosphere that most people will never experience in their lifetime.

    Modern day Wolves away can still be pretty hairy. Definitely the nastiest place I've been.

    The away end works in their favour too, shallow so you're looking up at everyone Wolves, imposing South Bank to your left and youths above you throwing all sorts down. Was a night game too which always adds a bit.

    Shrewsbury was probably second closest in 2012 (only due to the nature of the fixture) could feel it was going to kick off all day in the town (and it did), all goes away when you get to their stadium though, typical shit new build out of town, very easy to police and you don't even see their supporters. Vale is a bit rough too, utter hell hole of a place.

    Never felt intimidated in a football ground before but that probably because i only started going to away matches in 2001. I have to say though, walking from Canada Water tube station to Millwall ground and back last season was a bit intimidating.

    Yeah we would have gone to South Bermondsey normally, but no trains were running there that day for some reason.

    I agree..

    Although the atmosphere at an Old Firm both at Ibrox and Parkhead is intimidating,

    Most intimidating is any ground when Celtic are v Rangers be it Ibrox , Parkhead or Hampden park

    ive also been to Old Trafford, St James park , Anfield , Stamfordbridge at derby games and these are

    not in the same breath to talk home about .

    On a different subject the grounds ive been with tours in order are The Ajax ArenA , The SanSiro , The Bernabeu

    now that's class ..Lisbon 67 ye should try such :)
