ACCORDING to a feature in the Observer (10th October) Blundell Park is the 7th worst ground in the country. Effect best Sean Connery accent: "Surely shome mishtake Missh Moneypenny."

I will keep you guessing as to who could possibly have a worse ground but the admittedly not very scientific survey states of Blundell Park:

"Grimsby has the worst seating imaginable, with unbelievably bad views from some areas in the away end. Blundell Park has no redeeming features. It looks a complete tip, and they even increased the cost of a pie in the away end.

"It's a bit of a con. Blundell Park isn't in Grimsby at all, it's in Cleethorpes. You entertain notions of an attractive seaside town with a sandy beach and candyfloss but it's a ghost town where all the dogs in Lincolnshire congregate to make a mess on the seafront walk."

You will notice that it is bitter travelling supporters, probably smarting after a defeat, who decry our beloved home.

The 10 worst grounds according to the article are:

10: Stamford Bridge - Chelsea
9: National Hockey Stadium - MK Dons
8: Ninian Park - Cardiff
7: Blundell Park
6: Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace
5: Fratton Park - Portsmouth
4: Withdean Stadium - Brighton
3: Millmoor - Rotherham
2: Kenilworth Road - Luton
1: Priestfield - Gillingham

Living in Chesterfield I have to say that Saltergate is one of the few grounds that I have heard Grimsby fans openly laughing about the lack of facilities/ general state of the place but I am sure many people will be mentally creating their own top 10 list of worst grounds.
