If those are all games you attended I think we had better avoid watching games with you. In 40 or so years of watching mostly non-league football my only abandoned game was at Filbert Street in the early 80's when I think Southampton were visiting Leicester. Lasted around 15 minutes before a cloudburst. Made famous at the time by Steve Lynex doing the front crawl when he had slipped over in the rain.

They had handed out vouchers for a England U23 game earlier that season at Filbert Street beforehand because of fog. The game wasn't abandoned but many including myself used said voucher to get in for the rearranged Southampton game.

They were Keith , 25 abandoned games in 60 years of watching ain't too bad is it ?


7 of those the result stood, Austria 'B', Rayners Lane, Dalry , Mochdre , O/Survey , Penyfford & Port Authority so that leaves 18 games with no ground visit meaning a revisit . Don't worry Klagenfurt has been ticked properly.


So 18 not counted for a ground visit or 1 game abandoned for every 500 visited , no idea whether that's good / bad / normal. Anybody else got silly figures to hand , over to you Leo.


To add to that also had to revisit Plymouth Command in season 97/98 as the sec of the league annulled the game I was at because of a ringer.



July 1, 2019 to June 30,2020 = 109 / 92 / 17 / 4 x 0-0's. (You know my rules) @ 18 / 11 / 2019 . Belgium top 5 tiers 0-0-0-(0-1-0)-(0-1-0-2) / Holland top 4 tiers - 0-0-0-(0-0) / Lux top 2 tiers 0 -2. England top 10 tiers - 0. Now blogging at https://eccentricity.video.blog/

Been watching football for 40+ years and can genuinely only remember two abandonments in all that time, both in the last few seasons...

Chard Town v Oldland Abbotonians at Zembard Lane was called off after nine minutes after Sam Abrahams, a young Oldland player, broke his leg in two places. Ambulance turned up at 4pm & he ended up going to Musgrove Park Hospital with me in the car behind (I was secretary and no one else wanted the job!).

Bristol Telephones v Oldland Abbotonians was abandoned on six minutes when the floodlights failed, not enough diesel in the generator.
