Most Saturdays you've attended football on or Reply Privately

Looking through my records recently, it occurred to me that I have a very good record of attending a match on every Saturday in some months. Obviously, some months are much more difficult than others due to bad weather and inevitably everyone will have missed the odd Saturday now and then. Even August and May can be tricky at times - thunderstorms are more common in August than in any other month, and the later Saturdays in May can be difficult to with regards to finding fixtures. Sometimes you can be in the wrong place at the wrong time even when plenty of games are being played elsewhere. Then there are work and family commitments, although I have been fortunate enough not to be affected by these. My best three months are as follows, strictly in the order they appear in the calendar;

April - the last time I failed to see a game on a Saturday in this month was on Saturday 28th April 1979 (probably because I was at boarding school that day)

September - last time I did not attend a match on a Saturday was on Saturday 27th September 1980 (I definitely was at boarding school that day)

October - The last Saturday I did not see a was just two weeks after the above, Saturday 11th October 1980, again while I was at boarding school (for the record, I did get to see a game on 4th October that year!)

However, the above includes some Saturdays which were less than satisfactory, and which some people would not count. On two Saturdays in October I arrived after the kick-off and on another two October Saturdays the match in question was abandoned.
In April there have been a couple of Saturdays when I arrived after the kick-off.
Consequently, some people would say that September is the only 'perfect' month as it is the only month which every Saturday match I attended was when I had arrived before the kick-off and was played to its conclusion.

I am sure there are people on here who will not have missed a September Saturday since the 1960's, or any other month for that matter. Over to you.....

I haven't missed a single Saturday since the day I was born. Is this normal?

I've now amended the title of this thread to avoid any confusion. But well spotted, and not a bad joke. It has to be said that this is one of those rare occasions where it is very difficult to get the title of a thread just right.

No, I've missed a couple of Saturdays, and I cannot even remember what happened on Friday night

Re: [leohoenig] Fewest Saturdays you've missed in a month or Reply Privately

The response to this thread has been a bit disappointing, but I have just remembered (thanks to the comments on the Wokingham & Emmbrook thread) that many people will have missed the Saturday in September 1997 when Diana's funeral was taking place and nearly all football in the UK was called off as a mark of respect. I was in France that day (Wasquehal) and I know that some other hoppers also went to France or Eire that day. I believe the Kent County League did play most of its fixtures, but not the ones taking place in Greater London out of deference to the funeral's location. There may have also been a few other leagues - probably below Step 7 - playing but it would have been very difficult to be able to guarantee seeing a match that day without going abroad.

Yeah, I'm aware of that but it must be obvious that I'm talking about die-hard hoppers who never miss a game on a Saturday unless they are physically prevented from doing so by bad weather or illness. I'm not talking about the population in general.

Bethune on Diana funeral day.

No idea how many Saturdays I've missed.

Just a fortnight ago saw league games on Thurs/ Friday/Sunday/ Monday. (7/8/10/11) No Saturday games feasible to watch.

Why is it so important to watch games on a Saturday ?

I occasionally miss a Saturday due to bad weather or illness, but more often because I've got other things to do. Probably not "die-hard" enough.

.....or family events such as weddings & funerals etc. I think you've got little response as it's not of any real interest to anyone. Other than you obviously. Have you ever "missed" a Saturday due to walking away from a programme-less game?

Yes, I remember you (or Peter?) telling me about Bethune when we met up at a match in Belgium the following Sunday.

There was an occasion (in 1998) when I was touring Canada and there was no game for me to watch on the Saturday, only on the Sunday. However, this was in June or July so it didn't bother me as much as it would have done in any other month. Also, I think that it was just before the internet era began which meant that one had to take chances with fixtures and I would not allow such a situation to happen again nowadays.

Why is it so important to watch a game on Saturday? Because I say so!

I don't consider myself to be more important than anyone else on this forum. If you were referring to my last line in the previous post ("Because I say so!") you presumably haven't grasped the obvious fact, which is that my comment was intended as a joke.

To answer your question at the end, the answer is no. I will be honest here and admit that I have very occasionally walked away from programme-less games, but these have all been in midweek, since I don't consider such days to be important in football terms.
I have lost count of the number of times I have turned up at an English non-league ground on a Saturday and found that there was no programme, but in such cases I have always stayed to watch the match, unless there was another match nearby and there was enough time to get there.

As for your earlier comment about weddings, there was an occasion some years ago when I did get invited to one by relatives on my father's side of the family. As it was during the football season, I turned it down, giving some excuse unrelated to football although I can't remember what it was. The funny thing was that they didn't invite my brother, who was more likely to have attended! (and in case anyone is wondering, my brother isn't a criminal or anything of the sort.)

I wouldn't blame anyone for thinking that - obviously, if someone is not invited to a wedding the most likely reason is a criminal record.
The reason my brother was not invited was probably because he had never bothered to visit the relatives in question, unlike myself (although obviously I didn't visit them on Saturdays!)

Re: [Chris1963] Fewest Saturdays you've missed in a month or

Think that is a common thing people invite quite a few people they know won't turn up but tell them well in advance. I actually went to a cousins Birthday party on a Saturday afternoon four years ago instead of going to football. As did a number of other members of my family. I always remember Oxford were away to Burton a game a friend of mine missed as the car he was travelling in broke down. It was the first competitive game he had missed years and years.

I think that you live in a very different world to everyone else Chris. Would you not think that the main reason some people are not invited to some weddings might be related to costs/budgetary pressures?
Besides, we all know that being in possession of a match programme eliminates the holder from any suspicion of being involved in criminal activity on the date of said match. Obviously.

Inviting just one extra person to a wedding isn't going to massively increase the costs in catering, etc. The people on my father's side of the family aren't chavs and the wedding was in a church, not a registry office so money wasn't an issue for them.

Not chavs, but potential criminals, eh ? Was Jimmy Savile invited ?

No, he wasn't invited. My father died long before Savile did so I was never able to ask him about the allegations. However, I have been in touch with someone close to my father. Like him, she also worked at Stoke Mandeville. She says that she didn't particularly like Savile, but was not aware of him doing anything wrong at the hospital and is of the opinion that as he is dead he is not able to give his side of the story.

You're talking to a bloke who never has a good word to say about anything or anywhere; in short, one of life's serial whingers


So you think a cowardly attack on someone's disability means serial whinger hey? Disagree with Chris sure but to attack a disability, yeah you must feel very proud defending that! Well done Sir. Have to wonder if you'd have been so quick to defend a none clique member?

It was not a cowardly attack on anyone. Why suggest Chris and not the blind people on here. Its a saying to mean ti ignore things which was being discussed.
You are the type of person who I am sure means well but causes more friction than is already there.
I bear the brunt of many people regarding my size, do I moan. Do I tell people about my invisible disabilites, NO. Chris knows so.e of them but I never use them as an excuse for anything and expect no sympathy from members of my clique or outsiders like yourself.

How do you become a member of the clique? Do you have special handshakes or something? I know you're a genuine bloke Hoddy but some members like belittling people with unseen disabilities on this forum. Just the odd one line piss-take or using information given on a PM just to get a giggle out of those so called clique members.Unimpressed

Are sneakiness and hypocrisy "unseen disabilities"? Or, for that matter, are vulgarity, profanity, abusiveness etc?

No Paul they are not! I apologised to the forum for any insults. Can you accept my sincerity or keep dragging it up to impress who?
If you offer me your apology for any insults, then I will accept and let bygones be bygones! But you're not alone & I wasn't actually thinking about yourself!
As for unseen disabilities, some on here know some, but not all & I'm not going to post them just so I can be laughed at by the clique!

Well at least you pointed out my best qualities. I've decided to move away from holding grudges or making unqualified opinions about people I've never met & have never met me! I'm sure none of us are actually like there forum profiles. I can stick my hands up & say I've posted a lot of stuff without thinking or giving myself time to contemplate what I post. Doesn't help that I'm on a cocktail of medsCrazybut it's no excuse!

+1

Saturday is the main football day and I try to see a game (within my RULES) on that day whenever possible. There are occasions I can't due to last minute postponements but that's out of my control.

Should we get through to the next round of the FA Cup (yeah, right), I will NOT be going to Rushden - however the option exists* for either Arlesey Reserves or Chesham Reserves so I won't go without.

*Or rather EXISTED as Ms. Browne's preliminary efforts have not gone down well with certain members of her parish, therefore she's been detained all weekend until the situation has been righted.Cool

Yeah, I'm aware of that but it must be obvious that I'm talking about die-hard hoppers who never miss a game on a Saturday unless they are physically prevented from doing so by bad weather or illness. I'm not talking about the population in general.


Is a die-hard hopper the same as a seasoned one?

Should hopping have its own spot on the Autistic spectrum?

Re: [buncranaboy] Fewest Saturdays you've missed in a month or Reply Privately

Being a die-hard is surely a phase. It's a time when attending football is approaching the be-all and end-all of life.

Most people grow out of this and become seasoned. They have other active interests, apart from football.

How's this for a hopping spectrum? All just for fun, of course.

Random - attends lots of games (50 games per season / 10 new grounds)
Novice - starts to keep lists. May buy a stopwatch. Takes notebook to games. (100 / 50)
Enthusiast - makes efforts to complete things. Might buy one of these clicky-counter things. (150 / 100)
Die Hard - ticks beginning to take over life. Characterised by divorce and / or relationship problems (150 / 140)
Extreme - Now free of family commitments, seeks out the most obscure and far-flung ticks. (150 / 140)
Obsessive - ticks, crowds and programmes have taken over life. People start to think you are very odd. Personal hygiene problems may emerge. (200 / 190)
Mature - More Laid-back approach to programmes / ticks, relationships start to recover (100 / 50)
Seasoned - Other interests now rival football in importance (70 / 20)
Institutionalised - alternative route for the obsessive who doesn't mature properly (0 / 0)
Deceased

I think that makes me a somewhere between seasoned and random, with 49 games last season and 11 new grounds. Football has pretty much always played second fiddle to running for me.



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

Ditto.

When once checking in to my lodgings at a Hop a couple of other travels remarked I had rather a large bag for one or two nights, the bag they referring to was the one containing my toiletries. When they saw my overnight bag they were amazed maybe even stunned as I had more cloths in it than they possessed in their whole "wardrobe".

Also random with a bit of novice thrown in. Last season's figures were 40/21 and this year's likely to be a bit higher as I'll be free on more Saturdays.

No notebook or the like at games, just my keys, phone and wallet!

I'm happy to anounce that August 2016 is the first month where I've managed to attend football on every Saturday of the month since April 2009, seven years and four months ago. Now THAT is what you can achieve by getting a new job!! Smile

Back in April 2009 I was still working every Saturday, but was in a job where I was able to sneak off for a couple of hours, usually to watch Abingdons Town or United play.
