There’s a load, most in the same city. Does this matter? 

 

What do you mean does this matter?
I'm confused?

Generally tournaments try to spread the locations across the host country; but would it matter if the Arsenal, Spurs, and West Ham were all selected? 
 

Man City and Man Utd

 

Liverpool and Everton

 

Or would you want to pick a shittier ground, because it’s in a different location. E.g.  Sheff Utd, Brighton,

See what you mean


I think I'd go with the best grounds and facilities/transport infrastructure and try to do as even a spread as possible around the country

The Manchester and Liverpool examples are good ones - four cracking grounds there

Uk and Ireland means Hillsborough would be way down the pecking order in terms of English venues.

 

Would be lucky to make the top 16 if it was Sheffield and Ireland.

 

We love it because it's home but take your rose tinted glasses off and make no mistake, it's a s**thole that wouldn't make the top 30 today let alone top 16. 

 

There will be no major football event played at Hillsborough ever again. The world has moved on and it's been left behind as a crumbling reminder of the 'good' old days.

Did anyone go to the old Wembley just before it closed?

How it felt? 

How creaky and old and outdated it was?

That's how Hillsborough feels to me in 2021 overall

It's got it's charming bits but really if we're honest it's very outdated

Hillsborough is ready now.  No other stadium looks as good as Hillsborough when its full.

 

North stand is a thing of beauty, South stand is classic, the Kop iconic. West stand needs a little bit of work. 

 

 

Bring it on

 

I'm afraid the stigma of the disaster will rule out any chance of Hillsborough being used on a world stage.

It didn't for the Europeans and we were allocated a berth for the World Cup which the FA bid for.

Surely you want it spread out around the country not just focused in a few areas.  London could have a couple of venues.  Brightons ground is designed I believe, so it can be extended.

 

Bramall Lane should be raised to the ground.

Well, if you issue all the judges and influencers who make the decisions with a pair of your rose coloured specs, we might be in with a chance.

Go behind any stand or into any of the suites or offices and it's lacking

No.

And if we spend a just a little bit of money to get it in we would be mad.

 

Sad to say it, but our ground is no longer an asset.

With 3 stands that either need replacing now or will need replacing in the near future.

It has limited parking, poor facilities and limited hospitality.

And our one good stand has dreadful leg room.

 

Too negative?

A lick of paint can work wonders,  no doubt it needs sprucing up but funds would be made available and we will have had few years in the Prem by then and stock piled a few million.  

 

(Allow me my dreams and fantasies, and don't come back with any counter points)
