16. I got the Celtic one wrong because I wasn't paying attention :lol:
 
The lower league ones were actually easiest IMO. Station Park doesn't look much different, Shawfield is unmistakable, and of course our own ground has several identifying features...

Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.

In my defence, I was looking at it on a mobile  :blush:.

 

Imagine the complaints getting in the ground at 2.55pm on a Saturday with those crowds  :bag: .

13, with some lucky guesses. The only ones I knew straight away were Cappielow, Palmerston, Tynecastle, Station Park and Hampden.

Must have passed me by that one. Only remember it as a dog track.

Got 14. Can't believe I didn't recognise Station Park  :mellow:

The large crowd at Cappielow almost threw me..

 I would just like to thank you though for your efforts - second bottom is better than being the Ayr of the quiz.

21, although I'd read some of the comments on here which helped.

 

Quite annoyed with myself getting Brockville and Dens park wrong. I thought the covered terrace at Brockville might have been the part of Tannadice where the Fair Play stand is now. No excuses for Dens, where the Shed still stands.

One of the grounds I didn't get was Cathkin Park, which is easily understandable. It looked like a great ground though - had an English look about it.

Went a few times and it was a big ground. Sadly it was like a morgue. Must have been something back in it's heyday.

16 with two guesses. Strips helped a lot though.

15. Only got most of them right as some grounds still look the same today, others were just fortunate!

I also only ever knew it as a track for the dogs. It was a strange world but had the odd enjoyable night at Powderhall.
