    Hear hear. Before we get to too tribal and anal about it let's not forget that it works in Rome and Milan

    I'd have no problem with this, Except with Chelsea, not because it's Chelsea but because the atmosphere in a 60,000 stadium with 20,000 fans in it won't be great. Time for us to be pragmatic.

    I think Barcelonas pitch is below ground level. From the outside it is barely taller than Loftus Road, I think what you see are the top two tiers of the five or six. Might be wrong but it's the first thing I noticed when I first went there. Also Ugandas national stadium is slightly subterranean as I used to pay a quid to race my motorbike around the running track and there was definitely a slope you had to go down... A less famous example!
