Thanks Rhys.If you would like to join the 100FgC, then please get in touch.Cheers!
I clocked up my 100th ground yesterday at Histon. It has taken me 38 years to get to this landmark from my first game at The Goldstone Ground in 1973 to my 340th yesterday. A long journey through all four divisions, non-league, overseas and internationals. In that time I've taken in both the home and away El Classico's, QPR's glory and far from glory days, 6 FA Cup Finals, 1 League Cup Final and stood in crowds as few as 20 at County football level. Now that I no longer play football (I hung up my boots at 47), I expect to get through my next century of grounds a little faster!
Shaun, you seem a bit old to be one of the "bandwagon" mags after Keegan , therefore i presume like me you were one of the 16,000 who used to attend home games in the 80s and early 90s.NUFC like every other team since Sky has lost its soul to greed, i long for those special days when we felt a special affinity with "our club".Non league footie is now my way, with Alnwick my personal choice.Do you feel those non and lower league teams have a bond with the fans like we used to have? Great site but i hope the Prem bubble bursts and footie comes home to the conmmon masn again!!Cheers Paul in Powburn,24/02/2011
Shaun, great site.When do you plan to return to Newton Aycliffe - ground has changed a lot since you were last there in July 2009!
Just been to Nou Camp, Barcelona. What an experience. I just couldn't believe my eyes what I have seen there. The amount of cups alone (in the museum)is absolutely astonishing. And the height of the stands made me feel a bit dizzy, and I was only half way up. Highly recommended ground to visit and the admission fee of 18 euros was really good value. Unlike over here, you can just turn up and pay at the entrance. Highly recommended.
Great site.My mate Tony has visted over 200 grounds.Of he 92 leauge clubs he has visted 89,this might sound good,but what makes more astounding is that he has achieved it by just watching Hull City,Blackpool and Leeds United.The three grounds he needs are Aldershot,Brighton (new stadium) and Gillingham.He would of wrote this article himself but he does not have a computer.
Great Blog....I remember when i could afford to go ground hopping! Appreciate it if you could add a link to www.themondaysupplement.co.uk - daily football stories....Satirical look at the days football headlines.Let me know what you think.
