How can one man go against the view of dozens and both sides in terms of calling a game off? I don't believe our club were so desperate to get the game on that we would have risked anything. Southampton were evidently satisfied and so it should have been played. That was without Andy D'Urso, star of the show, who managed to call it off less than 60 minutes before kick-off. Tough on the Saints fans not to mention the Berlin boys I met after the game who had travelled over for the match.
In an age where we are about to legislate against airports for failure to keep runways open in the snow, it's high time games were called on or off twenty-four hours ahead of time assuming no deterioration in the weather. Pathetic.
