    The AMEX pitch


    5 Not allowed!
    Not seen it discussed anywhere else but who else was gobsmacked by the quality of the turf! It was like being on astrotruf. I doubt it hardly suffered any damage at all.

    When I look back to similar occasions on the pitch at the Goldstone and Withdean the pitch was never as good as that.

    Well done Mr Groundsman, Groundsmen, or Groundswomen I suppose.

      I think Groundspeople would be the acceptable catch-all there.

      Or, for those that don't identify as people, Turf Maintenance and Replenishment Engineers.

      I call bullshit on this post. You are merely trying to trick people into admitting they were on the pitch yesterday, thereby helping the club invoke banning orders. and for that reason, i am out.

      I couldn't tell from my seat, which obviously I never left at any stage of the celebrations.

      It looked marvellous from the Lower West when it wasn't covered in hooligans who blatantly ignored simple instructions from the club.

      I was staring in wonderment at how high the stands are from being at pitch level

      Actually no, it wasn't me, it was my twin brother telling me that story

      I was amazed at the strong grassy smell coming from the grass
      Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.

      That's it then, you've uncovered the source of revenue which funded the stadium, Mr Bloom is growing weed there.
