I dunno if anyone has ever noticed but there is a slope in the pitch. From the tv angle perspective the left hand side is significantly higher than the right hand side. Just another amazing useless fact brought to you by Trap Junior Spam Threads, a subsidiary of Trap Junior Holdings Worldwide Inc.

I think Old Trafford used to have a slope. Some say that Alex Ferguson had a touchscreen remote on his watch to make it increase or decrease. Sometimes the reception was quite poor, so he would walk to the edge of the technical area and tap it furiously.

I'm convinced Terryland Park has a sloped pitch too.

Tolka Park has a sideways slope down towards the TV Gantry side and then a bit more down towards the players entrance.

Watford's pitch has a fairly significant slope down from the Vicarage Road end to the Rookery end
