Wembley Stadium - England

England - Wembley Stadium

Last match I went to see: Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 CSKA Moscow, Wednesday 7th December 2016, UEFA Champions League.

I have been to Wembley on a number of occasions now, to watch England and even Gillingham as well in the League Two Play Off Final back in 2009. I was last at Wembley back in January of 2016, doing a tour of Wembley as I had been meaning to do a tour of Wembley so I did that before I headed off to Barnet to tick off another ground of the 92 which was only 10 minutes away on the tube. What can I say about Wembley? Everyone dreams about going to Wembley, whether it's the Play Offs, The FA Cup Final or even so, The Community Shield. The best day of my life was back in 2009 watching Gillingham play at Wembley for the first time since I've been supporting them, such a perfect day. Left home on the train, got into London, then onto a tube full of Gills fans, just perfect. And even more perfect, a last minute winner to get promotion to League One, beautiful! Anyway, I unfortunately didn't get to go to the old Wembley (pics below but aren't mine, so but credit to those etc) my Dad luckily got to go to the old Wembley to watch Gillingham play Wigan in the Division 2 Play Off Final (League One) back in 2000, just before the Old Wembley got demolished. I have that game on DVD along with Wembley 09 and it looks incredible. Of course, for me Wembley is the best ground I have ever been to, it's every boy's dream to go to Wembley isn't it?!

The best day of my life supporting Gillingham after beating Shrewsbury Town in the 2009 Play Off Final. (Apologies for the camera quality as it was taken on my old phone)
