FGR ground, it's not a stadium !!, looked really clean and tidy, even the advertising hoardings, perhaps they were all new. It also had a very modern digital scoreboard (in a weird low location) and some scrolling digital advertising hoardings.

Atmosphere was ok considering only 2500 crowd, they had a drummer,  they had home standing behind each goal.

Sixfields just looks so old and tired, although we have a big scoreboard it's not that easy to read.

What do you guys think, what would you do to improve it.  Do you like away fans just in the East?

Please please can we just have genuine comments, no sniping, no trying to score points, I really want to encourage some of those who rarely post to have a voice.

Thanks everyone

(sorry updated title as i didn't mean Sixfields Area)

Dear Random,
Can you answer the questions asked of you first, rather than divert or ignore them?

I don't care about the scoreboard, I know the score.

We don't need a drum. It's been done before.

Sixfields does look tired and in need of tarting up.

I've no idea how we improve Sixfields. We need more fans, but if it was that easy it would have been done.

I don't think standing will make any difference to our crowds. We didn't pack the Country Ground out.

Sustained success on the pitch is the only way.

I don't know why you mention FGR. As seems fashionable at the moment individuals with a large amount of money (as opposed to mega) seem to like to take clubs with a small supporter base up the leagues. What happens to the team or the ground when their sugar daddy no longer pours the cash in who knows?

As regards Sixfields it is obviously tired and tatty around the edges which is probably what you want to hear.

Much like TFMH I am sitting on the fence but until progress is made regarding the East Stand I would hardly expect the owners to be splashing the cash around except for the absolute essentials.

Five Guys is good, but a little expensive. I will pop in for a post match milkshake.

The Rushden and Diamonds effect? I said on twitter that FGR will get so far then disappear. Loads of pelters!

Sixfields is typical of its time. Despite the half finished East, its fit for the level we're at.

That might not sound particularly progressive or optimistic but its the facts.

When we are established in League 1 and pushing for promotion / play offs on a consistent basis, then I'll join the clamour to double capacity.

For now though, I'd rather see money spent on improving quality on the pitch rather than around it....

They are expensive, as are the milkshakes, though brilliant!
Not an advisable combination after a day on the ales...I've found out to my cost!

I don't see it as embarrassing as some do, but equally wouldn't have a picture of it as my laptop / phone wallpaper.

With regards to a drummer, if we get a drummer we also need to get a sniper. Nothing says tin pot, non league bunch of c***s more than a **** drummer. Im not a fan!

Outside I think more needs to be done to make it look sexy. Its just bland now. I think something like photos of legends or great moments as window stickers to cover the full length. The ones where you can still see out of the windows but gives more to look at outside. Can we paint the grey corrugate in claret? Or the support pillars in claret.

Completely off topic. I've heard good things about these milkshakes of late... which one is the best for a newcomer?
