Overall

Worst - Stamford Bridge(32/70) The FA Cup quarter final was the game chosen for the review of Stamford Bridge and the stadium was left 9 points adrift from next to bottom Upton Park and Arsenal's Emirates Stadium. The fans were terrible, parking awful, terrible location, stingy allocation and miserable stewards made for a day that was only saved by the support we gave the lads and the chants that we came up with were class

Best - KC Stadium(57/70) The Yorkshire side's ground was consistent through all categories with 8's and 9's throughout the 7 for fans, which was still the highest score given for fans. Bolton's Reebok was just one point behind with Wolves Molineux ground one further point adrift
