TTU Awards 2011-12: Best Ground

This year's award for Best Ground just has to go to Brighton's AMEX. The wait may have been long and tortuous for the Seagulls but their new stadium is a strong addition to the 72's roster. It does have its criticisms: architecturally, it perhaps shares a little too much in common with the Starship Enterprise and the train ride back into town has been fraught with stress on some occasions, but overall the AMEX has delighted far more supporters than not with its clever use of space under the stands; local beers and pies; green credentials; padded seats and friendlier-than-average.

Hmm, it is of course tempting to fill this page with doom and gloom as I did for the Leeds preview. It wouldn't be unreasonable, Brighton are a decent side and they've only lost one game in 2012 so far and find themselves firmly ensconced in contention for the play-offs. Irrespective of the justifiable boost that Tuesday's game at Elland Road will give us, it's probably reasonable to assume that the Seagulls will provide a sterner test [.
