Isn't Atletico Madrid's ground on El Paseo De Los Melancolicos?

My cousin used to live in Freeview Drive.

I love the ones round Loftus Road - South Africa Road, Bloemfontein Road, India Way etc.

'Bill Nicholson Way' leads off Tottenham High Road to the back of the main stand. Not so much a road name more a statement of intent.

Hendon's Claremont Road ground is situated in (or next to) the Clitterhouse Playing Fields.

Always made me smile, anyway...

We always used to park on Scorer Street, a couple of hundred yards from Sincil Bank. At first because of the name, then out of superstition.

Interesting Bryan, I never knew that.

Imagine what it's like trying to get a pizza delivered to Anfield Road?

One of the old streets surrounding Roker Park is named Hampden Road.
The names on the estate built at Roker Park include Promotion Place, Midfield Drive, Clockstand Close. I think Roker Park Close is the only sensible one.
Losing Streak Lane, Goal Drought Grove, Relegation Road, Play-Off Defeat Place, False Dawn Drive would be more apt choices surely?
The council refused permission to name them after anyone dead or alive. Surely that couldve been circumnavigated by dropping the forenames? IE Raich Carter Close becomes Carter Close? Len Shackleton Street to Shackleton Street etc. Especially when one of the Inland Revenues offices in the town centre is named Shackleton House.
Sunderland council are the biggest set of arseholes to ever walk the face of the earth for a million thing more important than this btw.

Before we moved to Kensal Green, I refused to look at a house on Clitterhouse Road as I was worried how it would sound if I said it to a taxi driver while pissed. I was also worried that he would never be able to find it.

I also vetoed All Souls Avenue for similar reasons
