They’re making a right mess of the pitch.

It looks very like Filbert Street. The first time we went to the new ground it was still there but had been demolished by the time of our next visit two years later.

Stands gone but pitch still there although now just a pile of weeds.

That stand must only have stood for about five years, if that. Anything Leicester being demolished gets the thumbs up from me.

It is Filbert St.

I hope you chose correctly with Knowledge and not zooming in on the street sign?

Filbert St, the scene of one of our greatest away performances of all time in Sept 1961, a 6-2 win. Jimmy Mac was at his imperious best and we ripped Leicester to shreds, could easily have been double figures. We'd also won 6-2 away at Birmingham City just four days earlier at a time the great team was at it's absolute peak and virtually unstoppable by any team in the land. Heady days indeed and Filbert St was also the venue for our FA Cup semi-final replay win against Fulham the following season.

Even though only 9 years old at the time I recall those two away victories so well. Didn't attend either of them but we have newspaper reports and one of them for the Leicester game included lines I've always remembered that went 'I'd take a slow boat to China or stand knee deep in freezing snow to watch this thrilling outfit in action'.

Looks like Blackpool used this as the template for their pitch in recent years...
