Despite being surrounded by several tube stations, one of the harder grounds to find because there is just no help from Shepherd’s Bush Market. You get told to come out and turn right but thats it, once you’re out, there is no indication of where the ground is. Better to get off at White City or Wood Lane.

Food & Drink
Loads of places on , though very few of the many MANY pubs allow in visiting fans.

Inside the Ground
To be blunt, an absolute hovel. Like Portsmouth and Luton all rolled into one, only without any of the charm. Only Luton has worse legroom, only Portsmouth has a worse ‘concourse’ area. A ridiculous crush, badly managed with everybody having to pile in the same turnstiles at one corner of the stand, then after the game, they send us out at the opposite end! The view from the upper tier is perfect…as long as you dont fancy seeing the goal at our end, even only a few rows back I had trouble seeing it, while there were an unbelievable amount of restricted view seats in that end too. When they’re charging you upwards of £40 for even the worst seats, there is something a bit morally bankrupt about the place, even in football where everything is morally bankrupt!
Teams line up in front of the South Africa Road Stand, 2012
Utterly average, alright after they scored, but mostly nothing to write about. They were fighting among themselves and assaulting stewards when Wigan were winning the Play Off game.
The Loftus Road End, 2012
The most unwelcoming away entrance since Reading. A barbed wire surrounding the away turnstiles, more coppers than you see anywhere else.
