Anyone else think this place is just a kip?  Everytime I see it on tv I think it's a soulless kip.

Been there a couple of times - Actually think it's a good stadium : Built up high but in a way that means you are still close to the pitch. Not a patch on the Millennium Stadium though, easily the best stadium in the UK for me.

The Millenium Stadium is very good. Been in it and it has character.  Twickenham just looks like a functional boring design.  Dunno, there is no character in it.  The Liberty Hall of stadiums.

Many worse stadiums that all seem to have been designed in the same way - Pride Park, King Power Stadium etc all much of a muchness. No imagination

Was just about to say this. Hate those square bowl stadiums that seem to be popping up all over England, they are the definition of a soulless kip.

Twickenham is alright. Transport is a balls though.

Far more soulless stadia in London. Ashburton Grove, Olympic Park, Stamford Bridge (unusual for a ground with so much history )

The transport thing is strange. Massive ques after the game for a train and then BTP keep everyone back and let the trains leave half empty

Been there 3 times and same thing each time. There must be some "obvious" reason for this but f**ked if I know.
