Quoted from Spurn boy
Blundell Park is a ground that is not only historic but the home of our beloved Mariners, generations of my family have watched football over the years here. We have never really bothered much about the ground although replacing the Barrett stand sort of modernised us a bit and improved the ground but ultimately we go to watch our team. I think the away fans probably don’t appreciate our stadium as much as we do. UTM


Generations of my mum’s family lived in rented 2 up 2 down slum houses in the long ago demolished slums of Blaydon-upon-Tyne with one outside toilet and no fixed bath. My mum was born and lived in one until she was 9 when her family moved to the luxury of a modern 3 bedroom council house with separate indoor WC & Bathroom in Staffordshire when the coal mines in the North East were closing and many of the effected miners and their families moved to other parts of the country. My grandad moved to work in Stoke.

If you told my mum back the when she was 9 and having to go out in the snow in winter for the toilet that she would own her own house before she was 22 and her son would own his own house and would have 3 indoor toilets (and houses with that amount of toilets would be the norm) she wouldn’t have believed you.

But the world moves on. I wouldn’t want to live in those conditions despite how many generations of my family did so before.

In doesn’t bother me how many generations of my family have gone to BP, the world has moved on and it’s no longer fit for purpose. It’s become a poorly located, dump on a footprint too small to redevelop into a modern football stadium the size that will allow us to compete with clubs of similar potential.

Her arrival at BP set the tone for this. Not many walk across the beach, climb over the sea wall and walk across the footbridge!!


Miss Scunthorpe. Not a beauty pageant, just sound advice.

I love our old ground it's a proper football ground all it needs is for the empty spaces to be filled in with seats and a few posts removed.

I know that will make the roof fall in so we better  put a new roof on the main stand while we are at it.

Am thoroughly disappointed with this. There’s a new bridge for a start!

I’ve been to many grounds far worse than this. Off the top of my head, Hartlepool, scunts, Luton.

And, it’s about ugliest grounds, not ugliest areas. The houses have naff all to do with it. Some people like modern identikit stadiums, others like the unique architecture that an older stadium has.

It may be a Sh1t hole. But it’s our Sh1t hole


Get ready tonight
You know it just feels like it’s forever

We haven’t won a game since December

Whose first thought on seeing a post box near a ground would be "would you sh1t in this if your team lost ?"

To be fair to the girl who made the video, it wasn’t her choice. She just filmed at the grounds that Talksport had named the ugliest grounds.

She does some really good videos from all over and covers lots of topics like catering and atmosphere.


Yeah at least she got off her bottom and went and had a look around for herself
