    Goldstone apart, which one was your favourite?

    I hadn’t realised just how many clubs have built new grounds over the years and there are plenty of old ones I never went to.

    The Goldstone
    The Dell
    Filbert Street
    Plough Lane
    White Hart Lane
    Highbury - should be my favourite because of THAT game but it’s not
    The Den, Cold Blow Lane (the most apt address in the football league for me!)
    The Vetch Field
    The Victoria Ground
    Elm Park

    My favourite was the Baseball Ground. No rational explanation as I’ve only been there once and we lost in a Cup game on a midweek evening. Maybe it was because it was the first time I had mushy peas with my fish and chips. The atmosphere that night was something special too. Proper old fashioned stadium right in the middle of a residential area.

    Good thread. Having done lots of aways in the 80s and 90s the ones I can remember are:

    Upton Park
    Boothferry Park
    Filbert St
    Millmoor
    Victoria Ground
    Sealand Road (Chester)
    Roker Park
    Gay Meadow
    Cold Blow Lane
    Feethams (Darlo)

    Some dodgy as **** places on that list but terracing and cheap. No membership points in those days.

    Worst was Roker Park standing on an open terrace while a storm blew in off the North Sea and we lost to an offside goal. Thank God I was lubricated

    Best was Darlo. 500 odd packed on to a covered terrace in the Mickey Adams part one days, atmosphere, a win and cheap, cheap booze

    Millmoor was decent too for some truly grotty pubs, a lap round the away end when Codner got our winner and a starring role by @Brighton Lines

    One I forgot as was Old Wembley, in fact I didn’t even know it was called Nene Park!

    It was actually the Bristol Stadium, Eastville.

    I scoffed at that, a lovely little modern ground I visited 15 or so years ago. I had heard about the demise of R&D but presumed AFC R&D still played here...
