Newcastle Utd fans may be outraged that their beloved stadium is to be renamed in a move that might help generate revenue to strengthen their team, but they certainly can't complain about the Sport Direct Arena's toilet facilities. Those who have been desperate enough to drop trow at a lower league football ground, on the other hand, will know it can be far from a pleasant experience. With this in mind, The Best Loo-sers campaign aimed to award the club with the crappiest bathrooms a £100,000 grant to instal some fancy eco-friendly porcelain.
Oldham's Boundary Park (pictured above) was the leading contender for the lavatory upgrade until some voting irregularities were discovered. It seems organizers were too short sighted to block users from voting more than once, and fans too keen to take a pee without needing to douse their entire bodies in hand sanitizer not to cheat the system, so the competition was pulled. Oldham's Alan Hardy said:
"They had to cancel it because people were cheating. I think some fans were voting 30 times.
"The money has just not been there in the past to revamp the toilets. I have been here for 31 years and some of the toilets are still the same now as they were then."
Fortunately, the multiple voting loophole has now been closed and fans are once again free to exercise their right to democratic commode pimping. Oldham still hope to come out on top, but they face some stiff competition...
This monstrosity is Ebbsfleet Utd's Stonebridge Road. I've been there a few times, and the clouds of steam rising on a cold night are far from pleasant. The town of Gravesend was bombed heavily during World War II, and I don't think they got around to clearing up this bit yet.
Believe it or not, this section of Tranmere Rovers' Prenton Park is in the family enclosure.
Barrow AFC fans don't even have running water in their toilets. And they're guarded by a terrifying blurry man.
