A paltry 34 I think and that includes Gander Green Lane
Wjy so few aways? Thought you pair would be up there with sw88Mine are all in the dim and distant past.
Total respect!!!I'm one of those saddos that have kept a record of every football match ever been to. Have visited 82 of the current 92, 77 with Coventry. In total, have seen Cov play at 102 grounds and have been to 143 altogether, many non league. All on a spreadsheet, with help from my son, who is only 2 behind me in the race to the 92. Recently saw my 1000th Coventry goal (George Thomas v Port Vale) (999 was at Wembley!) Can't beat going away, potentially 8 new grounds this season.
Colchester, new ground
Millwall, new den
Stoke, vic ground
W Ham, Upton pk
Southampton, The dell
Man City, Maine rd
Leicester, new & old
Wembley, new & old
Arsenal new & old
Lol, must've been 1976 aprox, dad and uncle had just started taking us to HIghfield Rd,Bedworth ?
If we're going down that route, I'm including Shepshed Dynamo (I played there when we beat Leicester Church X1, playing for Cov Church X1 4-3. I played right back at 40+ marking a skinhead who dislocated his shoulder, knocked it back in himself and carried on playing.
I'll add up the proper list on Friday, although I've done some places like Norwich over 5 times, yet never been to Stoke, Nor either Liverpool clubs or Manchester clubs. Not sure why?
I remember playing wigan in the cup away when it was pissing down and loads of people kept slipping over on the grass verge trying to get to the little shelter they had on the top of the verge. It was a true shithole.54 grounds with a surprising number that have closed (Plough Lane, Highbury, Upton Park Northampton's old ground,Victoria ground, Baseball ground, Filbert Street, Manor Ground Oxford, Elm Park Reading, Maine Road, Burnden Park, Springfield Crescent Wigan) - Baseball ground had a superb atmosphere as did Leicester, Wigan was a shocker
Crikey - forgot about that - 2 x Reading grounds (been to both, but had almost forgotten the original!)54 grounds with a surprising number that have closed (Plough Lane, Highbury, Upton Park Northampton's old ground,Victoria ground, Baseball ground, Filbert Street, Manor Ground Oxford, Elm Park Reading, Maine Road, Burnden Park, Springfield Crescent Wigan) - Baseball ground had a superb atmosphere as did Leicester, Wigan was a shocker
A heads up for you, Exeter are renovating their away end so I'm told there will be less tickets available than normal, so buy in advanceI have have seen City at 83 of the 92 grounds, hope to tick off three more this season, Exeter, Accrington Stanley and the new boys Forest Green.
