Some great quotes from Roy on Craven Cottage in response to Sir Alex Ferguson’s rather strange criticism of the dressing rooms.
I do think a lot of managers and teams enjoy coming to Craven Cottage. It’s not got the ambience of Old Trafford – it’s not that type or size of stadium.
It’s very, very different but what it gives is a flavour for how first-division English football has been through the years and I think people like Alex in particular enjoy that. Craven Cottage is a protected and listed building and the sizes of the changing rooms are, as far as I can see, equal.
When we play our home games we have to accept we’re in a tight, confined space and unfortunately we require that of our opponents as well. Craven Cottage is what it is and I don’t think I’d want to change it. So I’ll take his comments with a pinch of salt.
Sums up just how I feel about our ground. It’s got history and character, something really lacking at most of England’s identikit stadiums nowadays.
