    Both teams in 'we want home games' shocker. Unforunately, neither of them make the decision.

    The Millenium stadium is a far better sporting venue than Twickenham in all but capacity, but as it's England's WC I fully expect them to host that particular match.
    I have to disagree on this one. The atmosphere at a wales vs england match at the millennium beats out every other ground, but the facility itself is absolutely woeful. terrible pitch, terrible toilets, ridiculous bar queues, it simply does not compare to any of the other stadiums. The only one i have not been to is Rome.
    Well, as someone who goes to matches to watch the game rather than drink, I don't need to spend all my time queueing for drinks and pissing. I go to the Millenium once in the 6N and once in the autumn at least - and have done for 10+ years, so I'm certainly biased in that respect, but I've also been to all the other home nations stadiums at least once. I just think the location plays a massive part in building a great atmosphere throughout the city on match day, there's always good mingling between home & away fans and never any trouble that I've seen. And of course the layout of the stadium itself is what builds the great atmosphere, it's pretty steep and closed off.

    But yeah I agree on the state of the pitch, it's shocking :(
