Have the biggest Premier League stadiums become “lifeless tourist attractions”?
The atmosphere at the Emirates has been likened to a library, Old Trafford to an actual theatre rather than one of dreams and even Anfield has been accused of reserving it’s loudest support for big European games.
We asked the Pl>ymaker FC squad to name the worst match day stadium atmosphere they have ever experienced and sure enough, homes of the EPL’s ‘Big 6’ received criticism ranging from “shocking” and “terrible” to “quieter than a church mouse”.
However, there were also bad experiences to be shared from lower down the football pyramid.
Ed Tarlton believes one ground in League Two is so “soulless” he has vowed never to return, Jamie Boxall recalls what it was like to witness a 20,000-seater stadium at just 30% capacity and Ben Garside even named and shamed his own club.
