I was in the east stand before and its still the same. Even in the premium area in the South there are huge queues.



There are a few staff toilets about and they're never locked. There are that many people milling about at half time it's easy enough to sneak in and out Wink - and they're marked with the words "staff toilet".

Honestly like the people who designed the place must have been on the babycham or something.

Tis bonkers, alright. Couldn't wrap my head around it first time I was there and still can't to this day.

How somebody could f**k up the design of public toilets in a stadium that badly is beyond me.

Not as bad as the ones on the square, got a mother of a nose bleed and went into it and no toilet roll. Had use my tshirt, so that covered in blood, and the crazy police looking at me. Throw the tshirt away and busted the beer out if it.

Did something productive with my time. Millenium opened in 1999 and Aviva opened in 2010.

GDP takes account of multinational profits which aren't necessarily reinvested in the Irish economy. What you really need is median (not mean) wages cos that will show what the middle of the road man was making.

the toilets are crap at Landsdowne, you queue to get in then have to go back past people to get out. At wembley theres one entrance to go in and then another one to get out.

The stewards are crap there as well, at the cup final in 2010 three different stewards all showed us to different seats. Just found them ourselves in the end.  Some of the stewards said there was no allocated seats and sit where you wanted.

The entrances are really small as well.  We were in the front row it takes along time to get back out. 
Would hate to think what it would be like in an emergency trying to get out of there.

Croke Park is a shocking stadium to watch a football match in.

Proabably because they would be so far from the pitch. You generally see dugouts like that in most stadiums where the stands are a good bit back from the sideline

Yep that's a big one for me also . Now at Turf Moor they have the same where you have an in and out wrote up in big massive letters , it's just so many people from the Burnley area can't read and it's mayhem at HT .

Totally agree my waterford mate.  Pity the lads in Munster do not look afer the Waterford goys like they should.  Great that you feel at home at the home of Irish rugby. 
 
See you there for the spit roast against England  maybe
