In 1989, British football was shaken to the core when ninety-six people lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster.This, combined with the Bradford City fire four years earlier, enforced wholesale changes within stadiums?some clubs? electing to move, lock, stock, and barrel to brand-new arenas. Grounded is a unique memoir of the author's visits to these grounds done in sequential order from Scunthorpe in 1988 right through to West Ham in 2016, each chapter correlating with trips to their former domiciles and summarized with his opinion on their comparatives?not as obvious as may appear. In the process, he details what he finds there, how the journeys didn't necessarily go according to plan, and the friends he made and, in one instance, lost, whilst indulging in his favorite pastime?a hobby, an addiction, or merely a candidate for the lunatic asylum? Read it, and you can draw your own conclusions.
