Looking back at the FA Cup round that lasted up to 66 days (Part 2)

Bad weather has caused the third round of the FA Cup of 1962/1963 to be delayed … 261 times.

3 of 29 matches took place

The weather has worsened since December. Frost fog has forced 18 Football League matches to be canceled, including eight on December 22, 1962. Four days later, most of England was covered in 35.5cm thick snow.

The snow kept falling, the frost never thinned, and the ice in the River Thames was so thick that one could organize a race on it. January 1963 goes down to history as the coldest month of 20th century England.

Because much of England is flooded with snow, fresh food prices are up 30% and in many areas, the main water supply has been frozen. Naturally, English football is not prepared for such a sudden, impactful crisis.

At this time, some teams still don’t have headlights, so the FA called on teams to play in the afternoon to avoid having their power cut. However, only a few yards (Goodison Park among them) have underground heating.

So on January 5, only three matches of the third round of the FA Cup took place: In the Northwest, Preston lost 1-4 at home to Sunderland and Tranmere drew 2-2 with Chelsea. In the southwest, Plymouth football team was beaten 5-1 by West Brom.

Many football matches were postponed

29 other matches were postponed. With only Sunderland and West Brom winning tickets for the fourth round, 62 teams entered what The Times described dryly as “one of the most extraordinary rounds in tournament history …”

Of course, realizing that the icy will not soon melt and know that, if the fans do not come to the field will affect their finances, the team owners are trying to think of a solution as long as is a playable field. They took them to Danish snow moving tractors, fire generators, hot air machines, and also tried de-ice pellets.

In fact, even when the snow is cleared, the ground is usually frozen to almost 1 meter. Wrexham has dirtied their Racecourse Ground with more than 80 tons of sand and the reward for being able to play after 4 days is delayed. The thing is, they lost 0-3 on the beach court before Liverpool of legend Bill Shankly later.

Looking back at the FA Cup round that lasted up to 66 days (Part 1)

Today, the team must replay a match in the FA Cup makes them feel tired, but in the 1962-63 season, a round of the tournament lasts up to 66 days.

The bad weather

It took 66 days to complete the third round of the FA Cup in the 1962-63 season. The chaos, hardship and hope of collapse that affected English football in the coldest winter since 1740 are stamped on the picture of Sheffield United’s third round match schedule against Bolton, scheduled to take place on January 5, 1963.

It came with the words: “After much delay due to unprecedented winter conditions, the last match took place on February 20, 1963, the ball rolled at 7:15 pm. FINAL! On March 6, 1963, the ball rolled at 7:15 pm. ”

The two emotional “FINAL” words were almost the last word for the longest round in FA Cup history. The third round suffered 261 delays (Lincoln City – Coventry was postponed 15 times) when it snowed 15 feet (4.75m) thick, stormy winds, frosty fog, three months of frost and temperatures as low as -20, 6 degrees Celsius, making the match impossible.

As usual, the round started on 5/1 – only 3 matches took place – and closed when Middlesbrough defeated Blackburn 3-1 at Ayresome Park on March 11.

In this round, the FA panicked over the financial consequences of freezing – for example, Blackpool did not play a home game between December 15 and March 2 – to the extent recommended. interest-free loans. However, teams are not the only ones who feel uncomfortable.

Because there are no matches to attract millions of betting players to predict the score, the companies fearing bankruptcy have created a Pool Panel like a football lottery, which means predicting football results in days (but not the score).

Until the FA tries to find a solution to escape the climate chaos, the season must last longer, meaning the FA Cup final will take place 3 weeks later than planned, on May 25 / 1963.

There have been many comments and predictions about the way the league should continue. However, for Argyle, the league should be postponed as long as the Covid-19 pandemic is still there. The manager thinks the remaining matches of the league should only resume when it is extremely safe.

So, what’s next for League Two?

Many people believe that it is impossible now for the League Two 2019/20 season to continue. Due to the heavy affects of Covid-19 pandemic, people in the country continue to die from this pandemic. That is why the league should be postponed or even canceled to protect everyone.

Therefore, many people want to end the league. In case of this, the league should base on an average points-per-game basis to decide on the final result. Accordingly, Argyle finish third, Swindon Town is runner-up an and Crewe Alexandra, and promoted to League One.

League Two season ended

The League Two season has to end early due to Covid-19 pandemic. For the final results, Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City await fate

There are discussions following this end between Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City clubs. The clubs are waiting for their fate. The final results will be based on points-per-game method. 

However, there are some other clubs that are in favour of three teams being promoted automatically. If this plan is carried out, the champions will be Crewe Alexandra and Swindon Town. Meanwhile, Exeter City, whichis currently at the fourth position, would drop to the fifth place.

Could Brickfields be the center of elite sport in Plymouth?

Obviously, it is vulgar when footballers receive excessive wages for kicking a windbag. No matter how talented, talented, or talented they are, their contribution to society cannot be compared to the value of a nurse, clinician or social worker.

The value systems where bankers, athletes, singer dancers and battalion battalions hope for Simon Cowell, The Voice and other talented programs are flawed.

Certainly, we live in difficult times and our priority must be the health, safety and well-being of everyone in our community. Patience, patience and respect for national guidelines are given reasonable priority.

Between the discussions of at least three Premier League football clubs that are fluctuating about the solvency, we are not very enthusiastic. Indeed, the problem of our difficult cash flow at Brickfields and other Plymouth sports clubs must be solved.

The knowledge that normalcy, entertainment and sports will return to our country and the Plymouth community strengthens our resolve and energizes us.

In many ways, we are facing a perfect storm in Plymouth Albion. As soon as we entered the extremely beneficial phase of the late-high-income games, our sources of income were cut and the club left a few holes in the budget.

Despite the government’s guarantee of help and support, Albion is clearly between one criterion and another, and the most solicited government support is not available to us, at least especially in the short term.

Plymouth Power and the benefits of a partnership of the city’s “big three”, as well as the wider participation of our core sports community, are welcomed.

Big League Sport

Money is still a problem in high performance sports business. This requires funding! As the commercial director of Plymouth Albion, I will soon reach our commercial and commercial community to get up and count towards the sharp end of “Big League Sport”.

The passion and excitement of seeing our sports team come to the playground to compete in the big arena with the best people from other communities is a basic element to play based sports.

The next few weeks and months are important. We can take the opportunity to build and turn our vision into reality, or we can sit back and accept the dizzying heights of mediocrity.
