Anfield (Liverpool FC)
Advantages: great views, amazing atmosphere
Disadvantages: access, capacity
I have been going to Anfield since I was 8 years old and it's changed considerably in that time as has the sport of football itself and the entrance costs!! What has not changed is the amazing atmosphere that this ground creates, yes that is a lot to do with the fans on the Kop but this ground seems to have an aura all of its own.
I know as a Liverpool fan I am biased, but I've taken neutral spectators to watch a game and they have been almost spell bound. Even after over 20 years, I still get the hairs standing on the back of my neck, and that starts when I catch sight of stands through the terraced housing as you approach.
Compared to when i first visited in the 1980s, its a much more fan friendly experience, with cleaner, modern facilities. However, there is room for improvement in this aspect, if you visit other newer premiership grounds you can kind of see why Liverpool want a new stadium. I just worry a new stadium might not have the same awe inspiring effect of the old ground.
Ive never had a problem with obscurred views, however the old main stand does have about four big roof supports that could spoil the view. Ive always preferred the Kop (of course) or the kemlyn road stand (centenary), these have great views of the pitch.
Okay the spectator capacity isnt the biggest, it isnt the most modern of stadiums and its bang in the middle of victorian terraced housing so access can be tricky but this pales into significance. Its funny how a building or vehicle can stir emotions and its hard to explain, but this is ground does just that. If you visit Liverpool then make sure you try and see this place.
Summary: one of the best grounds in the world
