Villa's on-loan ace Robert Snodgrass sat down for an exclusive interview with the club's official website, and responded to a question asking him what stadium in world football has been his favourite arena to play in.

The 30-year-old winger moved to Villa Park from West Ham on loan during the summer transfer window, and has so far impressed for the Villans, scoring two goals and racking up two assists in 11 Championship appearances thus far.

Snodgrass has managed to rekindle his form with the Midlands outfit, following a disappointing six month stint in east London.

The Scotland international still holds fond memories of West Ham, however, although they are from before he joined the Hammers.

The Villa man sat down for an exclusive interview with AVFC.co.uk, and responded to a question asking him what stadium in world football he enjoys playing in the most:

"I've played in quite a few good stadiums, but the atmosphere...it used to be at West Ham's old ground, the Boleyn Ground. That was something. You always felt as if you were in a game, proper old school tradition. When we used to go there and play, it was very good there."

West Ham's new stadium is certainly not the intimidating place for visitors that Upton Park once was, and their home form has suffered as a result.

The east Londoners move to their new home was supposed to elevate them to another level, but in hindsight, perhaps it would have been in their best interest to remain at the Boleyn.
