Is exactly how I feel. Ashton Gate and The Mem in Bristol. Newcastle whilst they are in the current home will forever be St James' Park.
Eastville surely?
Sadly Eastville is now a huge IKEA store, the Gas kept their nickname from that era but after the move to Twerton Park they came back to Bristol to share with Bristol Rugby at the Memorial Stadium. The rugby have now moved out to share Ashton Gate with the City.

I know.

I meant recent historical and emotional links for the majority of Gas (our generation anyways) would have a link to Eastville more than the Memorial.
I know which one I preferred 8)

Indeed it was, their equivalent of The Holy Trinity. I only mentioned Harold Jarman because he had a habit of coming down to have a cigarette pre game where I used to work, he was their equivallent to Tommy Robson, played for about a million years
