Southend by the sea
On Saturday this will be my 100th League ground i have visited both old and new grounds.
I started out back in 1987 going to Fulham away (first away game of the season, going on marion and chris's coach) we lost 1-0 to a 87th minute goal that was a deflection off of Danny o'shea chest.
I was thinking about what is the best ground and worst i have visited over the last 23 years (Oh my god!!)

Best ground- Apart from Roots hall - (I love everything about it and the memorie's I will never forget) it has to be

Worst ground - Springfield park

Best memory of a away game- Bury away on a tuesday night we lost 3-1 and Danny o'shea got sent off. The reason for this game was that I was asked if i wanted to travel on the team coach by John Adams (Vice Chairman) which i did and for me seeing how a team prepares for a game was just amazing. I remember after the game the coach stopped for fish & chips and lager which was arranged by big Roy.

Ground i want to visit - Newport County 9If they get back in the league as this was the first team I ever saw at Roots Hall)

Grounds still to visit in leagues
Aston Villa
Cardiff city

Out of these teams I want to visit Liverpool last and stand on the Kop (sober!!)

So what about you, how many grounds have you visited old and new, how many do you need to do to complete 92, best and worst and any good stories?

Writing this Danny o'shea really did ruin some of my best days!!!
