Tony Hudd and I visited the highly impressive Liberty Stadium on a very windy day and we concluded that many of the Barclays Premier League clubs have yet to match its standards. For example, the two press boxes are on the half-way line - the 52-seater higher up and the other one, which has more than 40 working stations along a wide corridor, on a lower level - whereas more clubs are now placing their corporate boxes on the halfway line.
