Dream Ground

29 posts in this topic

If you could pick four stands to make up your dream stadium, which would they be?

I think you would have to include Salfords North Stand, and Leeds new West Stand as the 2 end stands, and The old Douglas Stand from Central Park on one side with the North(?) stand at the Halliwell Jones.

Any one got other ideas?

Although I have used a stand that has been demolished, remember this is a dream Ground.

The KC stadium is superb architectually inside, but I couldn't include it here.

I'm not really a fan of seats ;)

Imagine the atmosphere in such a ground with 40k on.....

One of the end stands has to be the double decker from the Watersheddings.

Huddersfield, but with a single tier behind the other goal.

Fantastic ground - although I accept a bit of terracing would be nice.

Stick a roof on Odsal to keep the rain out and noise in and you will have a brilliant ground -and that's a fact!

It's OK if you have 40/40 vision from the the hill at Rooley Lane end.

Fill it with cement for an excellent car park.

You'll have to make do with the Double stand for now.

I remember watching Oldham v Warrington in a Lncashire Cup game there, and some Wires fans beating the cr** out of some oldham fans using his crutches in the top of that stand

The old 3d stand from the Boulevard has to be there. It has to be before they tacked on the prawn sandwich boxes though.

Didn't have seats in the top tier when I used to go in it. I can't think of any other stand that had top tier standing.

In fact, at the time (early to middle 80s), was Watersheddings the only RL ground that have covered accommodation on all 4 sides?
