Brentford away in the Johnny Paintdrying Cup, (14th December), was our last get together on a cold and ultimately success free evening.
Had I known then when I returned home, that I could well have just seen our last game of 2010 I'd have been amazed.
I'm due to be at Brighton later this week but I really can't see the, (ahem), 'facilities' of the Withdean holding up to another drop in temperatures.
Yesterday I'm sure the game could have gone ahead.
Everybody except referee Andy D'Urso seemed to believe the pitch was playable.
However, the game was off, only about 40 minutes before the scheduled kick off.
For me, this was little more than annoying as I'm a local but for the Saints fans who had made the (public transport free) trek and our supporters from far flung Kent and beyond it must have been bitterly disappointing.
I'm sure there was a resounding chorus of 'Bum!' from many who had given up family days to be at the Valley.
