Which football ground in London is the worst?

by SpaceCruiser » 30 Aug 2012 22:43

After discovering that Reading were due to play QPR in the league cup 3rd round, I'd made the claim on TB that QPR's Lofus Road is the worst in London.

Would you agree? Nominate another ground in London and I'll stick up a poll later.

Whitehart Lane is an absolute bitch to get to (and from). Nice while you're there, though.

Worst ground in London in Selhurst. Cvnts.

Selhurst or Loftus Rd. Selhurst is a shithole in the arse end of nowhere, populated by retards.

As for Loftus Rd, Been there 4 times, twice seated in the top tear, twice in the bottom tier when it was terraced. Any ground where no-one in the top tier bar the front row can see the near goal isn't fit for purpose IMO. My hazy recollection of the bottom tier was that it pens than One Man And His Dog and you couldn't see a thing for all the metalwork. It may be better now

Fulham is a great gound, no idea why people would dislike it's brick façade, original fittings and riverside location. I would actually say one of the best grounds in London.

On the other hand, Loftus Road is perhaps the worst. Ugly corrigated panels, no leg room and horrible seats.

Selhurst needs tarting up a bit but I don't think it's that bad.

I like Loftus Road as it's very intimate and you are very close to the action.

Selhurst Park is a dull rusting shithole that's a pain in the arse to get to.

Only one I haven't been to is Orient and I can't imagine it's the worst, from my experience I'd say Selhurst Park. Underhill is one for the 'purists' but because of the sparse crowds and the ballache of a tube to get there it's also shit.

Selhurst Park has literally nothing going for it, it's hideous.

Fulham is one of the best grounds in the country, let alone London. I'd go for Loftus Road. Cramped, ugly and I've never seen us win there. I can see why people are saying Selhurst Park, but I grew up nearby so I have a bit more affection than others.

What about Millwall? Completely nondescript.

TBF, I've only done the corporate thing at Upton Park. Park in the stadium grounds, pop round the corner to Erkins (best fish and chips I've ever had) then cushioned seats next to the commentary box. All good.
Although this was back in the day when Avco sponsored them and I knew some senior Avco people.

Harrow Borough is a bit grim.

Fisher Athletic was not much better either.
