    Thinking about how cosy Craven cottage sounds (plus a bit of allieration)

    Best ground name?

    Agree. Think it had a bit of a magical vibe to the name too.

    Although it true to say some of our jealous rivals from Swillsborough, Bellend Rd and Bumhole Lane have been know to refer to it as Jokewell.
    Absolutely uncalled for. Rarely has a chuckle been heard this year.

    I don't know why but when I was a lad I used to think The Hawthorns was a brilliant name for a ground.

    Tony Macaroni Stadium. It’s Livingston FC if you did not know.

    Bracken Moor not as cosy as it sounds this time of the year

    Scarborough's McCain stadium always made me hungry for some reason.. great bit of marketing. And they had a chippy outside.

    You've been reading too much Tolkien. ;)

    Some of our players are a bit elf-like though, so there could be something in it.

    When I was a kid, I always wondered why Wolves' ground was named after a blender.

    Some Scottish grounds have fantastic names.

    Love Street
    Brockville
    Ibrox
    Tannadice
    Firhill
    Cathkin Park
    Somerset Park, which is nowhere near Somerset.

    And then some of them verge on the unpronounceable

    Pittodrie
    Cappielow

    Not the stadium but sitting in the “ice cream van stand” was different this year.

    Always thought San Siro and Stade Velodrome sounded grand. Old Trafford sounds like a tacky tabloid nickname for a posh colonial colonel who died of diptheria at 13, while leading British troops in India.

    Shrewsbury's Gay Meadow always sounded a bright, happy place, until they moved. New Meadow sounds nice enough, but doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

    Cliftonville play at the wonderfully named Solitude!
    Might be a more appropriate name for our ‘Stadium’ next season.
