    The mini-scum were very lucky. Radcliffe were the better side and missed a load of chances to win it.

    As part of my new duties as a volunteer dog walker at Manchester Dogs Home,I have ended up walking off Moston Vale and then along Monsall Road towards Oldham road.
    And on the left hand side of Monsall Road is a huge swathe of land where the old Monsall Hospital grounds were. It is all fenced off now,and getting very overgrown,full of trees and buses.
    This plot of land is where FCUM should have built there new stadium,plenty of space for a 5000 seater stadium and associated car parking etc. Hardly any neighbours to annoy/disturb/make complaints etc. Easy access to Oldham Road one way,and Rochdale Road the other way. Walk back into town in 20 minutes or so,and their very own Metrolink stop at Monsall.
    The Councillors who pushed to use parkland on Broadhurst Fields should hang their heads in shame.

    Moston Brook high School was where GMP HQ is now,along with the offices on the other side of the road(Fujitsu etc.)
    United had a few homes in the late 19th Century,(as did City) the most well known one was Bank Street,and that was situated on what is now the public car park of The Velodrome.
    The land/field I am talking about was where Monsall Hospital used to be situated for around 100 years. It closed in 1993 apparently.

    That land must be really contaminated. Someone would have built on it by now.

    Yes I was thinking that myself. Yet it has not been used as an isolation hospital for over 25 years. With the price of land these days you would think that some business would invest in decontamination of this land and then make a tidy profit when selling it on.
