Ah fair play! Good on ya! I wanted to get in to see the statues, got chatting with a lad who had a guest pass but they wouldnt let me in because i had 3/4 shorts on, Fair enough like but a crying shame because i would have loved to have seen the Museum and such

Chittagong beats the lot!!

No queueing to get in, no queue for the beer or food, no problem going in and out, easy transport to get there, no Aussie Aussie Aussie, no 'jobs worth' stewards or police, no toilet queue. Need I go on........

Yes, I loved it when the roof blew off and nearly decapitated half of the crowd.

And I was especially keen on the whole concept of having no beer on day 1 of a test match.

Don't forget the many tress growing through the cracks in the stands!

As regards to the SCG? Nice museum maybe, everything else - big shit hole. The catering and service at Edgar Street is better.

I enjoyed the members area on the 5th day, that part of the ground is so much better than the rest, but having spent the first 4 days, and 4 years ago and a few other times in-between in the rest of the ground, I have to say i'm not overly impressed with the place, it just doesn't cope well with large crowds!!!
