    Best in england is probably Peterborough for the terraced away end, though i always had a soft spot for highbury (before the seats went in) and also like Orient. Also loved Maine Road too, sketchy as hell outside but a great atmosophere inside

    Best abroad i've been to is probably the San Siro, one of the few iconic grounds that lives up to what you expect.

    Worst in this country Fratton, Luton then any of the big club grounds that just show all that is wrong with english football. Also Derby's old baseball ground and Reading's elm road were both shitholes with chunks of the ground falling off (which the Derby fans used to launch at us)

    Worst abroad i've been to is probably Steau's ground, uncovered away end, police that wanted any excuse to beat you and small lakes masquerading as puddles outside.

    The (away) terrace is no longer at Peterborough, only the home terrace now unfortunately. A real shame as it was a cracking away end and most of the pubs in the city are open to away fans too.

    Best - Benficas old Stadium of Light. Nothing has come close since.

    Worst - Not been to many bad grounds. Probably Windsor Park before the revamp. Bit of a shithole.

    Windsor Park really was a hole before the revamp. Yet it was still by far the best stadium here. I laugh when people claim grounds like the Emirates, Old Trafford and Fratton Park are the worst they have seen.

    Best ground Villa Park a proper football ground. Honary mentions for Anfield & Goodison. I'm no fan of the new flat pack stadia that's blighting football these days. Maine Road with all its ginnels was a place where you kept an eye on each other's backs but has been said cracking atmosphere inside, then you have The Etihad nothing frightening or intimidating there. Also like Home Park.

    Worst grounds Kenilworth Road, absolute shocking walking over folks back yards & The Withdean was awful, so far away from the field of play, mind I did witness a Fab Delph wonder goal there. Last time I visited, been twice it was lashing it down & BHA issued us with ponchos which were really pointed. It looked more like a Klan meeting than football fans.

    Used to be a regular visitor to Seaview. Not a bad little ground for the Irish league but absolutely bollock freezing down the Railway End.

    Oh aye, still freezing I found. Not been in a few years. In fact I stopped going just before they started winning the league.
