10 December 2009 ~ There's always a minor squabble for first read when the new issue of Groundtastic arrives in the WSC office. In the current edition there are features on whether Nottingham's City Ground is worth sacrificing for a few potential 2018 World Cup games and the history of the North Norfolk derby between Sheringham and Cromer. We also learnt of potential plans for a Wizard of Oz-inspired "old gold road" through Wolverhampton and viewed plenty of stadium holiday snaps. "Why go to the beach when there are stadiums to be seen?"

I really hope Wolverhampton's yellow brick road comes to fruition. The architect says: "In the same way that Birmingham has Selfridges and London has the London Eye, this ‘old gold’ route will be a living, breathing, working landmark."
