Jackman Park pitch wise has looked in very good nick recently. Athlone Town Stadium was very patchy last week. I get the feeling the take into consideration the surroundings as much as anything.
Yeah, no way is that being decided purely on pitch quality. I don't think Jackman measures up in terms of pitch or the actual stadium regardless. Will be interesting to see, whenever it happens, how Markets's Field measures up.
The only other pitch I've had the chance to see this year has been Carlisle, and that was a great surface and a great stadium. Suprised it isn't highter.
I dunno what period of time this was done over, but I thought that Terryland was immaculate on Saturday.
A bit of cop on all round is called for at this stage.

I've been following these ratings since they were first introduced there's no doubt they are taking in the stadia around them as well.....Some very strange ratings at times.
Was at Jackman last night and it was in absolutely fantastic nick the best I've seen this season anywhere......However Jackman will always be marked down because of the actual ground itself.
Finn Park was in superb condition last night. Apart from the town end goalmouth, the whole pitch is in fantastic condition. A real credit to turn it around so much after how bad it was at the start of the season.

Must say I'm fairly surprised Flancare Park is so far up the rankings. Thought the pitch was very bobbly on Saturday night. Very rough looking in patches.
