Little Lost Football Players

To say I'm not a football fan is a bit of an understatement, I just don't get what all the fuss is all about. Inspite of this, I seem to be developing a habit of living near football stadiums.

I was always somewhat bemused by the fact that Crystal Palace don't actually play at Crystal Palace, but instead down the road in South Norwood.

However, I am now somewhat more amused by Millwall.

As far as I'm aware Millwall is here on the Isle of Dogs. Millwall's football stadium on the other hand is here in South Bermondsey.

erm... isn't that the wrong side of the river?

Are all football teams this good a geography?

According to Wikipedia:


  • Grimsby Town are actually based in Cleethorpes

  • Patrick Thistle are based in the Maryland district of Glasgow rather than Patrick

  • Nottingham Forest are based in West Bridgford (outside the city limits)

  • Bolton Wanderers are based in Horwich



So, it appears football geography is countrywide.

You beat me to it on the Grimsby Town one!

Don't start me on the MK Dons saga!

Been to Grimsby on a couple of occasions (well, Cleethorpes). They're supposed to be moving to a new stadium at some point that, IIRC, is closer to Grimsby than Blundell Park (which feels Godforsaken at the best of times - a few years ago I went there for the last away match, for us, of the season, so we're talking late April, and we were all wrapped up in probably more layers than we'd wear to somewhere like Forest-in-January!)

So did I! Well sort of. For a bit. More Grimsby really. I don't remember it being all that cold there really though!
