How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
I had been advised that there is nowhere to park near the ground so I went to the town centre. The ground is right next to the A12 so virtually unmissable.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
There is a park and ride shuttle bus from near the train station, so I parked there and got the bus. As much as I loathe the out of town shuttle bus stadium, they were at least efficient, and I was back in my car by 5.15.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Its an all new ground, so the views are good everywhere.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
They do a lovely steak and ale pie...but it was tiny and I was starving again half an hour later!

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Awful. Absolutely non existant.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
There is nothing. I mean it. Not even the obligatory retail park. In lieu of having a bar at the ground, they just opened the exits in the South Stand and put picnic tables outside so people were actually having to go into the ground itself for a drink!

Overall Score Out of 10?
Of every ground Ive ever been to, this is unfortunately the worst. Terrible location, no soul whatsoever, nothing to do, nowhere to go. New build hell.
2/10
