1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):
 
I was looking forward to visiting Stadium Mk because it was a new stadium and I had never been there before. This was a very important game for Cheltenham because they had only won 1 point from 6 games away from home that season but it was just as important for Mk Dons because they were on great form and looked unstoppable. So I know that it would be a very entertaining game.
 
2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking:
It was very easy getting into Milton Keynes the trip was about 2 hours. (Because bird flew into a window and cracked it on the bus) The ground was also very easy to find because there was not much around the ground and it is also very big. The Car Park is just outside of the ground and there is a lot of space to park but coming out of the ground you have to wait for everyone to go before you can.
 
 3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
We got to the ground at about 1:00pm and we just went straight in because there was no where to go before the game. But we got something to eat in side the ground. The food was very expensive and was about the same price as Wembley. You can get what they usually have at football matches chips, pies, hot dogs and there was also beer to buy.
 
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?
 
When I first got inside the ground and saw the stands I thought that it was a smaller Wembley because it is the same lay-out and is very big. It was very cold inside the ground because the stadium was not finished and it didn't have a roof on it but all together I thought that the ground was very nice and should be a championship one next season.
 
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..
 
The game itself was very good in the first half there was a sending off to their keeper and a penalty save by the Cheltenham keeper. The atmosphere was very quite from the home support they only started singing when they scored a goal but Cheltenham weren't any louder. The stewards were very helpful and were kind. The food was very nice and you had a lot for your money. Also the toilets were very clean.
 
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
Getting away from the ground was very easy we just had to wait on the coach until all the home supporters went before we could head home.
 
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
 
I thought the day was a great day it was a really nice ground and everything was good accept from the result where we lost 3-1 and had a player sent off!
