I went with my son to the Spammers new mighty stadium last night. 54,000 people, a hike to my seat up in the land of the gods (a parachute under my seat) and near heart failure to get there.

It made me think though, would I really want my beloved Shrimpers to go that far? My answer was a resounding NO!


Nightmare to get in and out of the stadium with so many people
Nightmare to get the train home (2 1/2 hours from Stratford to Wickford via Liverpool Street)
Food drink prices horrendous
The thought of needing to use the loo with trepidation as would have to make the mountain hike back to my seat again
The players looked about 6 inches tall
No emotional connection with the players
It was like watching an indoor game, no sun beating down or worries on which way to kick 1st half due to the wind or sun = no pre match discussion about the conditions

Nah give me a small intense stadium with a connection the the players over this any day!!
