Strangely, Fortress County Ground doesn't feature in the list, but an interesting read nonetheless:

The scariest I have ever been to was the International stadium at Gateshead when I used to regularly watch the Mighty Heeeed...

Not so much the atmosphere as it was invariably almost empty, but the steepness of the rake on the main stand and the fact that I normally attended with a stinking hangover after a Friday night on the piss, make negotiating up the stand very scary at times.

I wouldn't class any stadium I've been to as scary. I stood in the home end at Elland Road when we played up there in the prem, does that count  Smiley

I used used to go to The Dell with a schoolmate quite a bit and vividly remember cautiously walking down the Milton Road End having seen a few stumbles previously.

Ha, I went there when that home end was an open terrace. The away end was sectioned off, so you couldn't walk from one end of the terrace to the other. Not good when some smelly git is dropping his guts.

Upton Park before segregation was hairy.

Saw Liverpool play there in the early 70s.

The Old Den for me.  With iconic floodlights rising straight from the crumbling open terrace.  Luckily STFC was relatively irrelevant to most of their fans.

x2  We were apart from i think it was 1988 a 2-2 draw when most of them seemed to be outside the away end trying to smash down the big metal doors.   At the New den the one where we won 2-1 was funny as we all piled in I asked a guy who looked like cockney wanker out of Viz where to sit. He just said sit where you fackin like mate, the fuckers told me there were only 400 of you coming, so i dont give a fuck anymore.

Well prepared outside the Boca Juniors stadium :-)

I was actually on a Buenos Aires bike tour...

Outside the Maracana in Rio. We went to a friendly between Flamengo and Orlando (USA)  Not exactly scary but just off the photo there was a police armoured car and several machine gun toting (but camera shy) policemen. That was just for a friendly with c10,000 fans. Not sure if the police are always so well armed and numerous, but it was a day or two after the Bataclan attack in Paris.

I went to the San Siro and the police were carrying, bit like at an airport.

Saw the Town play there in the mid 70s,cant remember the year.
FA cup game when Eastoe got the equaliser.
Always thought it was called the Boleyn ground.

Wouldn't coin it as World's scariest but was up there with the countries disgusting environment of late 80s stadia. The Baseball Ground. I bit of useless chicken wire fence separated you from the home fans. Consider I only went to Derby v Town matches there. They'd still spit at you and throw bottles of piss through/over. The dirty bastards. Would not have wanted to be in amongst that lot v Forest. I'm sure some nutters would've relished it though. Takes a certain breed.

It was much like being at a metal gig, except no one minds a bit of flying piss at a gig and everyone is supporting the same side!

Glad to see Derby have largely moved on and are largely a family orientated club. Pride Park is a decent enough stadium. I was there when it was opened...by Her Majesty The Queen (how the fuck they got her I'll never know).
