Old Trafford 03/05/2004

The Biggest and Best Stadium in England

Old Trafford As a season ticket holder at Old Trafford I have visited the place that many times I have lost count! The stadium is magnificent and anybody saying otherwise is merely jealous. The facilities in the stadium are first rate with Ladbrokes bookmakers, half time cash dash sellers for £2000 prize draw, drinks and foods outlets, male and female toilets, televisions every few metres showing Sky Sports. In addition there are many stewards only too willing to help you find your seat. There arent any bad seats in Old Trafford but there are some high spots! Tier 3 of the North Stand can be regarded as high and expect quite a climb up to your seat, also east and west tiers 2 at the back are high. The visitors seating at Old Trafford is regarded as some of the best seats in the stadium with a superb elevated view. In addition the visitors section is just across the forecourt from the coach park and this saves walking! The only drawback I can think of when visiting Old Trafford is the obviuos traffic problems when 67500 people leave the stadium. Expect to wait in queues of about 30-45 minutes to get yourself back onto the M60 ringroad and a similar amount of time to get back to the city centre. Public transport can be used with buses to be found outside the Bishops Blaize pub, taking you to the city centre and the tram station os found just down the Warwick Road beside Lancs Cricket Ground. All in all you cant help but be impressed by the best sports stadium in England

Goodison Park 03/05/2004

Goodison's view not so good

Goodison Park Visited Goodison this season for the Everton Manchester United 4-3 epic. As a United fan I travel to all their games and have been to Goodison on several occasions. Unfortunately on each occasion I have been seated in terrible seats with an obstruced view of the pitch. Obstructions include posts blocking the view, the roof of the Upper Bollins stand being too tilted and the layout of the ground does not allow views of the corners, from the back of Upper Bollins. Outside Goodison and getting to and from the stadium is fine. Their are options with public transport buses back to Lime Street station and Liverpool being Liverpool there are always many taxis hunting for business! The M57 motorway is about 4 miles away from Goodison and allows an easy escape. Word of advice though avoid Queens Drive in Liverpool if you can after a game as it gets very congested!

Peugeot 406 2.2 HDi Coupe 03/05/2004

Diesel Peugeot Coupe Packs a Punch

Peugeot 406 2.2 HDi Coupe I recently purchased one of these 406 coupes and was impressed initally by the sheer beauty of the exterior. It has the looks of a real sports car. Whats hidden underneath the bonnet however is a diesel engine that is fairly quiet and packs a punch as you shift up into the higher gears. The top speed I have achieved has been into 3 figures and it could have comfortably gone a lot faster. The car is realistically a sports car but has a diesel engine. Not a real drawback in my eyes but some may not fancy a diesel as their sports car! The only real draw back is that it is fairly sluggish off the mark and takes a while to get going! I am delighted with the car and would recommend. ...
