How many football grounds have you been to?

I was going to say none, but......

I got dragged along to one of the London grounds with my dad when Leeds were playing, QPR? Crystal Palace? dunno.
Saw the dog racing at Braintree Town FC
Saw a concert at Sahfend FC
Visited the souvenir shop at Elland Rd, and got Jackie Charlton's autograph
Saw Elton John at Wembley.
I can't imagine anything sadder. I mean, that's really sad, that.

Wembley Stadium (only the newer one)
Ewood Park
Maine Road
Loftus Road
Craven Cottage
The Emirates
The Etihad
Links Park (Montrose)

Overseas:

Brøndby Stadium Copenhagen
Santiago Bernabéu Madrid
Generali Arena Prague
Mercedes Benz Stadium Atlanta

So only 12 league grounds, for some reason that seems surprisingly low.
Plus many other sports grounds but not applicable to this thread.

To see football games:

Manor Ground (old Oxford Utd)
Filbert Street (old Leicester City)
Field Mill (Mansfield Town)
Wembley (the old one).

To see other things:

Celtic Park (Commonwealth Games 2014 opening ceremony)
Ibrox (Commonwealth Games rugby 7s)
Wembley (old one again, Bon Jovi).

I have also done a guided tour of Old Trafford.

Non, some grass in Manchester some where to see Bowie perform in the 80's, i think some over paid geezers in light blue ran around it chasing a bag of air at the weekend.

Rather stand on a mountain and see athletes earning their dosh riding up on 2 wheels with a smidge of salbutamol:whistle:

It always astounds me on threads like this what effort people will go to in order to do the online equivalent of a passive sneer of disapproval at the subject matter. Like most fairly adjusted people, if I see a thread about which I have no interest (say, cats, or reality TV, or electric bikes), I'll just eschew that thread altogether and I'll click on other threads and even consider commenting, only where the subject matter piques my interest.

Other people though....
"Hmm, a thread about football eh? I've no interest in that sport whatsoever, but BOY I can't wait to click "reply" and tell everyone just how much it doesn't interest me!" Cue at least three lines of text, explaining in detail the extent it doesn't interest them.

It's really perverse behaviour. For other examples, see any car or TV related threads, and the associated "Pah, I don't even own a car / TV" replies.

It's a bit pathetic, isn't it?

When the 'Footy' thread first started there was a few members who decided to put their oar in saying how football is rubbish/boring etc. They ended up looking rather stupid.

It's a measure of their own insecurity

You must surely have been to Burnden Park as well, or at the very least The Reebok?

Nothing unusual about today.
Just another enjoyable visit to Celtic park.
But my first time at their new vegan catering outlet.
Haggis sausage rolls are excellent
