Eleven Years On: 2011 FA Cup

Had we all been allowed to attend matches last season I would have marked the tenth anniversary of Manchester City’s 2011 FA Cup success with a programme feature. Sadly, Covid prevented that and now, a year on, I want to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of that FA Cup success. How time flies!

Historic Name That Ground – Week 7 Answer

On Sunday I asked ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above? It’s a much more recent image than the others I have posted but this ground is no longer standing.’ The answer is:

Stoke City’s Victoria Ground. The image is from 1991 during an inspection by the Football Ground Safety Committee.

Each week for the next few weeks I’ll post an image of a football ground taken in the past and you can see if you can recognise the ground. Some will be easy (believe it or not there are some grounds that have not changed much in all those decades!), others not so. You’ll be able to post your view in comments at the bottom of each page.

The following Friday I’ll post the answer.
