The ground you don't want to go to again

For me it's Blundell Park. I can't stand the place. Away stand is rusting and is about to fall down. It just feels like you're living in the 18th century. 

What about everyone else?

I’d second that. I know Kenilworth Rd is mentioned as well and that is bad, but Grimsby really is terrible. Horrible facilities, no control over the home fans, when you’re leaving you have that constant 1980s feeling that the Grimsby mob are going to come round that next corner to do you over, whilst all you’re trying to do is get back to the sodding McDs on the main road! The away urinal is basically a wall and you just hope you don’t get splashed by the guy next to you. Terrible.

Ricoh Arena, Coventry. I went there a couple of times when I lived there, tried to like it but couldn't. Soulless, no distinguishing features, no atmosphere, miles out of the way and an absolute pain to get to, no pubs nearby. So sad to give up Highfield Road for a place like that. I think Coventry fans would love to go back there though, anything is better than groundsharing.

Worst German ground was Karlsruhe. It did have a certain 50s flair about it, but if you were unlucky enough to be sat behind a goal you ended up in shallow, uncovered seating behind a running track about 50 yards away from the pitch. I'd call it a shed but sheds generally have roofs. It's being rebuilt now and the ground is currently a mess of temporary stands. Which is still an improvement on what it was.
