  • It's an impressive stadium, wind swept off the Weir. Parking is easy and you're only a short metro hop from the City centre or even Newcastle. There's not too many pubs, although the away end serves beer. Up in the gods, you feel a little isolated although the away end makes a good racket.
  • Seats are going pink, food is pricey and drink is crazy expensive. It's a football ground tho so you kind of expect that. Easy access since everyone seems to leave early
  • It's a great stadium. Great lines of sight. It's nice that there are free buses from park and ride on the outskirts of town. Compared to other football at this level the prices are reasonable. There's plenty going on outside as well with a nice fan zone and food outlets. Shame the football isn't up to much this year.
  • As an away fan you're up in the God's. 14 flights of stairs to be precise. On each landing as you go up a funny witty ditty greets you such as "Vinnie Jones saw more red here than these floors" until you get to the final landing when you find yourself out of breath to be welcomed by "They think it's all over. It is now..." 8th biggest ground in England. You'll enjoy it!
  • Nice stadium but not good for away supporters. A gruelling hike up concrete stairs to the top of the stands. Fans great .
