The Bolton League Cup saga included a postponed game. Sat in a pub in Bolton when the news came through.

That was due to rain though, I think. Town fans didnít cover themselves in glory, either with one local pub smashed up.

I spent NYE 2001 in deepest, darkest Norfolk with a girlfriend visiting her family.  It was like stepping back in to the 1970s.  Middle of nowhere.  Lots of snow, but I thought nothing of it.

Left early the next morning to head back to London with a plan to take in the Colchester game on the way.  It was only 30 mins before kick off when we started walking to the ground after a pub lunch - and realising that there was no-one else doing the same that the penny dropped.  The game had been called off the previous day.  Pre-smartphone era.  Embarrassing, to say the least.

The Walsall away debacle a few seasons ago still makes my piss boil.

I was in the KFC by Ikea, drove down to the ground to be told it was off...total bollocks...dusting at best!

I don't know why, but that comment reminded me of the halftime entertainment during the Crawley game.

So, the competition is that you start with the ball on the half way line and dribble the ball into the box where you have to beat the keeper, who just happens to be an ambling Rockin Robin. The key is to get the ball into the goal in the quickest time possible.

Last week was a father and son combo. The dad went first and took a bit of time to get into the box where he skipped around RR and coolly slotted home. The kid when asked if he fancied his chances stated "yeah, this is going to be easy". Raced forward showing excellent pace, picked his spot past RR and shanked it wide! Cue ironic cheers Smiley

We were sat in the Burnden park car park, burger van fella told us it was off. We went to the nearest pub, they had viz cartoons on the tv and it was like walking into the Rovers Return from corrie

Very similar for me too..  I remember sitting next to PaulD when we travelled back up for the replay..  One of the coldest games I have ever been to that..  We lost 2-1, with our goal coming in the 94th minute when I was walking past the stand outside...

Looks like a great effort from far too few volunteers. Can't see it ending well.

As the sun dips beneath the horizon, we've had but a mere smattering of snow. More cold frost. In fact a think the settled freeze was more than the snow fallen here. Strange seeing as we're right by the peaks. Possibly protected a bit and get micro climates/mini temperature inversions. Thrilling stuff, if you like that kind of knowledge  Pint

More snow settling here now (about an hour east of Swindon).  I'd be surprised if the game goes ahead having seen the depth of the snow on the pitch.  No realistic prospect of getting all that cleared.

It's been constantly snowing here since the early hours. Probably 6" now.

This game won't be on.
