Top 24 English Football Grounds Advent Calendar 2018

From Saturday 1st December, I will start my countdown of my top 24 current English football grounds. Six photos, six lines of text.

Grounds like Highbury, Boleyn Ground, White Hart Lane won’t feature, as they have been demolished. Old Trafford won’t feature either, as I could be accused of being biased as a Manchester United fan.

But here it is as a sample – or a preview of the concept.


Day 0 – ground no. ? – Old Trafford, Manchester United

The sheer size of the current Old Trafford is impressive. And it glows magicly in the floodlights for evening kick-offs. Yet, I must admit, I prefer the old one. With standing terraces and the factory/fortress like look.

Maybe that is why, it is the walk up Warwick Road – or Sir Matt Busby Way, the Red Legends Souvenir shop, Lou Macari’s Fish ‘n chips and the streets behind the stadium that really makes me feel at home, when I go.
