The one we played the MLS All Stars in was class. Is it in Chicago or somewhere? Can't quite remember.

Hopefully one of our friends from across the pond can help me on that one.

We played a friendly in 2008 against the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park, which is 30 miles outside Chicago and I doubt what you're referring to.  Solider Field is quite magnificient, right in downtown Chicago and on Lake Michigan, but Everton have never played there.

You may be referring to the match against the MLS All-Stars this past summer, which was outside of Salt Lake City I believe.

We also played at Reliant Stadium in Houston a few years back, and that's an impressive stadium.  I can't remember if we played at the Qwest Stadium in Seattle when we were there, that is a hell of a view from a stadium!

The new NFL stadium in Dallas is massive. It has the world's largest HDTV hanging in the middle. Cost $1.15 billion to build.

Palmertson Park. Home of Queen of the South.  :eh:



My folks live about a two minute walk from there. You're missing the main stand so that's not too fair!

That is the main stand mate. The stand opposite is the new stand, that's what you'll be thinking of.

Small world, I work about 2 minutes from there.  :thumbsup:

I love La Bombanera, home of Boca Juniors.  To go and watch a game there would be amazing, and that weird little stand down one side is awesome!

according to a manc mate of mine the san siro is a real dump on the inside. piss runs along your feet on in the toilets and it's basically just not a great place to watch the game either.

if they end up in the europa again though (or we get in the CL) anytime soon it would still be top of the list of places id want to go to be able to say i've been.

The old National Stadium (Cardiff Arms Park) in Cardiff was awesome for atmosphere - the Millenium Stadium, though pretty god is not apatch on the old ground. Loads of pubs within a 2 min walk tho. Happy days

Aye, but more impressive the new one, though!

Where are you working? I lived in Dumfries for a while for the last few years of High School, buggered off a long while ago but my folks have stayed.

The atmosphere is second to none in Rivacre Park

Three Lions on a shirt, Jules Rimet still gleaming.
