Manchester Regional Arena (Manchester City Ladies)

What’s that? This seems a lazy addition seeing as we were just across the road last week? Tell you what, go and boil your head. I shouldn’t have to put up with this crap from people like you.

This seemed like a no-brainer, even though it’s a very curious place. Granted, Manchester City Ladies have now moved out and play at the stadium built into City’s Academy training complex, but seeing as both they and the men’s reserves called this home for a few years, it seems daft not to include it.

Truth be told, it absolutely has the feel of an athletics stadium rather than somewhere that football should ever be played. It was built as a warm up track when the Commonwealth Games visited Manchester in 2002 and served as a handy home for City’s ladies and reserve teams. But it’s easy to hate.

It’s a perfect athletics venue but not fit for football at all. Is it worth visiting? You can’t not if you’re doing the Etihad, but this is a piece of football history that is barely worth mentioning. Don’t worry, I’ll have a proper ground for you next week.

Woodhorn Lane Update
The car park needs sorted, and I’ll guess that inside might not look as finished as the outside, but safe to say things are progressing nicely at Ashington.
