How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
The traffic getting into the city is horrendous.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Ive drove 3 times, and on my first visit parked at the Ocean Village Marina, which seemed okay, had a few places to eat and drink etc. But it took me well over an hour to get out afterwards, such is the traffic in the city. Last 2 times, Ive parked on the other side of the Itchen Toll Bridge from ground. Much better as it completely avoids all the traffic. There are a couple of free car parks there too on Oakbank Road and Portsmouth Road.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
All new ground, views good everywhere.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Not great. Eat outside

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Another set of fans of the banterrific variety. Fan in the Stand, a cringey shoutey announcer, 'we forgot that you were here.' Sod off.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Southampton seems like quite a nice little city...its just a shame, they decided to built the ground way out in its arse end near the docks...as it seems the further you walk away from the city towards the ground, the less nice it gets. Nowhere for away fans near the ground at all bar one or two burger vans. Stick to the city centre, or the Ocean Marina Village, or if you park on the other side of the bridge, there are a few places to eat near there.

Overall Score Out of 10?
I dont like it. Dull ground, horrible banterrific atmosphere, nothing to do nearby.
6/10
