It's quite simple really, if your driving you find a good place to park, you get to look at a good ground up close then you go off to the pub which will still be quiet and drink loads and stumble into the ground at 1955pm

Football 60's & 70's

TBH along with my Boro remebering the 60's & 70's is all I go on when on FB

Now & again you get some Boro action shots that I've not seen & I'm a collector

It is an impressive venue I suppose, plenty of money spent on it, but that didn't prevent many of us having to sit on rain sodden seats.

Oh, and the traditional walk back to the tube station seems even further.

The corporate brigade and Cypriot tourists will love it.

Very impressive ground but I didn't expect to be so exposed to the weather. The corrugated steel roof of the Holgate would have kept you dry on such a night.

As I said on another thread:

I wasn't at all impressed with the stadium once we got in. It's nice to look at but not nice to be in. Basically everything is too small and a bit cheap. It's not a patch on (how I remember) the Emirates, or even some of the new stands at older grounds.

The crowd control element of releasing people in batches was good, but having to show/scan your ticket three times on the way in felt like overkill. Also "Hats off! Undo your jackets!" doesn't exactly create the most welcoming atmosphere.

Totally disagree. Thought it is much better than the Emirates. Feel you are closer.

The outside security was heavy handed yes but nothing to do with the stadium. Just itís security policy.

Agree Cardiff. Thought the sight views were tremendous. Much better than any other ground Iíve been to and certainly improves on the Emirates.

The concourses were an issue. I think too many people wanting to shield from the cold and wind and try out the bottom opening pint experience.

I went to the Emirates last week with a Leeds supporting mate and went last night. Spurs stadium is much nicer IMHO, nicer finish, looks a better design, much better concourse etc. The Emirates is also too draughty with the open corners under the roof.

It's aesthetically pleasing. I did like the barriers in the away end - it's almost a throwback to standing terraces.

I'd imagine it must be difficult to generate an atmopshere though, unless it's a really big game. At times you could hear them trying to get chants going at the opposite end of the stadium but it didn't carry.

Also, we fancied looking around the club shop before the game but couldn't get in. Seemed to get to the entrance you had to have your ticket scanned, and they would have turned us away knowing it was for the away end, unless there was another way in which we failed to spot?

No, you could get in to the club shop we showed our tickets but they were more than happy to let us in.

Largest in Europe and full of nfl stuff as well.

Wish we'd have tried now. We'd tried to get in through the wrong gate and they told us we have to go through gate 11, so just assumed they'd have said the same.
