Ground location.

When I lived in Sheffield I lived near to Bramall Lane.

 

I liked how you had to travel to like a little outlaying village to go watch Sheffield Wednesday. 
 

I think the different locations of the two Sheffield clubs give them their unique identities. In fact, it felt a bit like London in that respect, ie Millwall and Crystal Palace are only 5/6 miles apart, but The Den is near the Thames and Bermondsey and New Cross are very much inner-City neighbourhoods, whereas Selhurst is very much suburban south London.

Palace, palace, who the fu.c.k is palace

A few years ago I had to have it explained to me what that place was about!   

 

I felt so naive.

Quick question - where are THEIR grounds and how far is it from Kings Cross/St Pancras?

 

 

Think the nearest to St P's is Arsenal 2.5 miles. Spurs is 6.5 miles QPR 5.3 miles. Hillsborough is 3.6 and Blunthole lane .09 from Sheffield Station.

Not sure how much DTaxis charge from town to Hillsborough.

I live and work in central London and one thing that's often said to me by pals and workmates during our football conversations is about Hillsborough being too far out of the way when away fans arrive in the city. How they want to have a drink in the town then make the short walk to the ground. They always say that our streaky rivals ground is easy to walk or stagger to but Hillsborough is too far out of the way. They talk about having to get cabs, trams etc. I've even been asked if Hillsborough is actually Sheffield or on the outskirts. This got me thinking about if we was to relocate and how people would feel about a brand new stadium more central to the city and would this generate an even bigger fan base. A new stadium more central to existing and new fans alike that's easier for both home and away fans to get to. 

 

Interesting stuff, but you've basically made all that up to justify moving.

To be fair the ground is for us........the station up the road is shut and was used regularly for travelling away fans 

This should be reopened would be ideal for away fans

Or where the Ski Village is?

That's closer to the train station and the land's pretty much derelict there

 

Can't see our players fancying playing up the slope in the second half.

The only place I can see that is appropriate would be here, but it's still 1.7 miles

Just round the corner from Le Chambre great for the away fans, guaranteed happy ending

Not even suggesting that we move but if we had to I would put forward the common land with covenant surrounded by  Worthing Road, Woodbourne Road and Rippon Street. The Cricket club looked to acquire it but we were told it was part of the 'Attercliffe Plan', that was nine years ago. Today the land still lies fallow.

That’s another way to start a moving ground thread.

It was the originally built by the The Sheffield, Ashton under Lyne and Manchester Railway with a station at Bridgehouses. This became the  Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway in 1847 and the new Victoria station and Wicker viaduct was finished in 1851.

It's only occasionally used for freight traffic to and from the steelworks at Stocksbridge.

What's he got to do with it?

I went to the two NFL games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last autumn, and whilst the facility itself is tremendous, accessibility is woeful. It's like dropping a national arena into the middle of a densely populated residential area. Getting away from the place was horrendous and involved being in a huge crowd going almost nowhere for about half an hour as stewards and police tried to manage the flow of people, a walk of about a mile and then queuing for ages to get into the tube station. 

 

 

Bet it's still not as good as Hillsborough

Never mind the tram... What's all these roadworks from Shalesmoor to Kelham Island on the main A61?

 

imagine the meltdown on Penistone Road on match days when the new cycle lane is enforced. Allow yer 'sen an extra hour's journey time from the City Centre so that you can walk to Hillsborough because travelling by car will no doubt be very difficult on match days once we are all allowed back in the stadium.

Tell em not to take any directions from pig fans because they'll tell em they need to catch train to Barnsley and Hillsborough is on South side of tarn. :tango:
