Snow joke| Meet the fans who flew in from Dallas, Texas to the postponed Burnley game

By Harry Hotspur -

If there’s one phrase that irritates the hell out of me (just as much as careful what you wish for) then it’s the childhood classic, ‘there are others worse off’, which I guess these days would be largely replaced by ‘first world problems.

After becoming aware of the snow in Burnley, earlier today, I took comfort in the Met Office forecast, which indicated the game was unlikely to be called off. Then the game was pulled and I was annoyed.

Then I spotted these two pilgrims and the annoyance subsided a little.

31 one hours is some haul, even if the game did take place.

At least the superfans are with fellow supporters and getting stuck into some match-day booze.

Good luck!

Would love to see the follow up tweets!

If the club have ANY sort of clue in the social media department they will do something nice for these poor two souls!

Great picture on BBC website earlier showing Sean Dyche in his shirt sleeves during the pitch inspection.A great caption saying Dyche doesn’t feel the cold,the cold feels Dyche.
A fine example to the snowflakes in the game today.

Hats Off to these, all, supporters. Let’s hope the rest of their trip goes well. Maybe Levy will do something nice for them, it would help his PR.

With global warming it’s a rare event, I can remember regular games being postponed every winter back in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Though snow in November is unusual. Anyone remember the mud back in those days?

Quite common back then, especially in the early 80’s. As a fisherman I remember the postponements often coincided with lousy fishing weather too.

When players were men ?

Remember a game at Derby County when they couldn’t find the penalty spot and had to have it remarked .

Those were the days, when there was more mud than grass and they had to play with orange balls in the snow.
