Joys of the Cup

Every week fans of English football get to see such great meccas as Old Trafford, Anfield, Ewood Park, and in the past Highbury, but during the FA Cup that all changes. Fans like my self, get to see such classic grounds in lower divisions as Portman Road (below), Turf Moor (above) and the Scholars Ground.
The best things about the ground outside of the premier league is that they all have something different to offer, weather its classic terraces or a terrible pitch.

That is what makes the cup so special, it gives fans who have never been to England a look at the smaller clubs that make up the fabric of the game.
