Reebok Stadium review - 19/9/09
I've always liked the Reebok. It is pretty unique (although no doubt a copy of Huddersfield's job) but really should hold more. However, they very rarely fill the capacity so perhaps the decision from the board to build a 28,500 capacity ground has been vindicated.
Quiet as a mouse. They got a bit excited when Kevin Davies had a tussle with Abdoulaye, and cheered when they won (and scored) the penalty. Apart from that, they were sat around eating their pies. Dreadful support and, to be honest, I don't think they care anymore. They seem resigned to relegation.
I didn't have any problems with the stewards in the upper tier and I haven't really heard of any problems (amazingly). Plenty of police horses around the ground and didn't feel in any danger whatsoever.
Right off the M61, the Reebok is pretty much perfect to get to. I've also got a handy parking spot and within 40 minutes of the final whistle, I was already in Oldham.
Like I said, I've got a good spot which is free, but about a 20 minute walk to the ground. I think there are some problems with parking but, for me, it is great.
Last year I was in the lower tier so decided to give the upper a try this time around. Both views are very good- quite possibly the best for away supporters in the league.
A solid allocation which I'm sure could have been extended due to the low turnout of home supporters. Nice to see the Stokies snap up all the tickets again.
