    Open to being proved wrong but was Defoe the last remaining Prem player to have played at Maine Rd.., actually now I’ve got my brain in gear Crouch, Barry and Milner probably also did. Any more ?

    If you could pick 4 stands that didn’t match one single bit, youd’ve hit the jackpot with maine road!!

    It just felt like going to a football match going to Maine road if you know what I mean. Walking between the rows of terraced houses and hearing the noise of the ground. Especially night games. There was definitely a magic element to it. You just don't get that anymore
