    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The only one on that list that I have been to is the GABBA. It is a fantastic ground, with an aura around it. You get a great atmosphere when you go to a cricket game, especially when you are in the middle of your supporters.

    I would also like to visit the MCG one day. Despite the pitch not being great, I would love to sit in the stands and enjoy myself. Although this probably won't happen for at least 6 years, but it's something I want to do some day.

    I've been everywhere.

    It'll move up the list a bit in the next couple of years at least.

    How can so many American universities have 100,000+ seat stadiums?? How is that even viable, when professional sporting teams can't maintain that a stadium that big and pull crowds that huge?

    I know they take college football really seriously but FFS, how do they get all the money? How do they get such big crowds?
