    I'm off to The Emirates on Sunday. Just like to know what is your favourite away ground.
    Mine happens to be The Emirates.
    Just ONE! choice there doesn't have to be a particular reason.

    The old White Hart Lane. Was looking forward to the new one too, still a nightmare to get to though.

    Emirates is easily the most impressive. For atmosphere I used to love Ninian Park.

    Preston is good, usually get a decent allocation and the butter pie is amazing! I quite like Forest too because we've not lost whenever I've been.

    Not a fan of the big grounds, not much atmosphere.

    The City Ground (Forest) - Proper ground, and I love it as an away day.

    I like St James Park, good ground in a City Centre location.

    Bristol City away a few years back was class, proper away end and proper banter with the home fans, who were loud until we spanked them

    As for the Emirates, beautiful ground, **** atmosphere i would imagine

    The lung busting climb to the seats and the need for a telescope to see the action mark it down, but yes great ground and nice people

    Forest is up there for me. Good away end in the right place around the goal, can make a lot of noise, tremendous boozers pre-match.

    First time at the Emirates for me this weekend.

    Much to my surprise, I really liked the New Den. Friendliest, most helpful stewards I've ever encountered as an away fan.

    I always liked going to Upton Park. Spurs was decent. Dislike most new grounds .

    Goodison Park may be outdated and a dump all around it, but the blue just hit me when I went there.

    Etihad is pretty good too, especially with 6300 Wolves fans singing.

    Sheff Utd, been about 5 times, proper atmosphere and ground, near the city centre, pubs and station.

    Forest and Fulham (in the Summer).

    For some reason, I always enjoyed Notts County too. Particularly in the Steve Cherry era...

    Funny how most of us like a ground that's probably cost about £10m, built in stages over 50+ years as opposed to the mega 60k soccerdromes that cost 400m!

    Some of the grounds in League 1 were fun. Who remembers Leyton Orient on Easter Monday? Got there and my seat was a piece of plastic nailed to a wooden bench lol

    Was it Halifax you had to pay about 10p to move from one part of the ground to the next?

    Back in the early 60's there were turnstiles in the North Bank, North Bank Arsenal and other grounds where you could pay to move from behind the goal into the enclosure.

    As it should be, we never sit on those 'seats' in the away end anyway.
    Peterborough was the best away end.

    Like many on here I go for the old, small, traditional football grounds in old footballing towns, fans near the pitch, intimidating atmosphere and loads of banter. I grew up watching my football at Griffin Park (usually Divs 3 and 4!) with my brother and perhaps because of that I love to go there. Football is often about memories and nowhere recreates for me the early 60s football atmosphere more than Griffin Park - dark, dank mid-week evenings, 4 pylon flood lights on high, mud-clogged pitch, 22 journey-men whacking the ball from end to end, the red of the Bees, cigarette smoke, moaning fans (perhaps no more than 3 or 4 thousand), a few rain-soaked away supporters in the open end. It couldn't get more **** but boy, golden memories that live with me still.
