It was cheesey and the images were loaded from some other server which slowed the loading time of the page down. I'll keep me eyes open for a nice javascript count down thingy and stick it on if I can find one.

Javascript ones look nice but mess up for some reason

I was bored & just reading old threads.
I dont think I saw the countdown, but i just knocked this up in flash.  Its counting down to the manc match on Tues, so if you're looking at this after then the numbers will be negative.
It shouldnt be too hard to put the rest of the fixtures in for this season, so it automatically jumps to the next one.
Is this what it looked like?  obviously i can change fonts, colours & pics, but this was just a first go.
The file size is 27kb, dont know if thats too big.
But if you want to use it, i'm more than happy to finish it off.

Yeah, ERP, do it.....doesn't need to be flashy.  The one on Craig's post will do nicely.

I'll put the next few fixtures in to test it.
If i just put league games in there would be no need for updates for any cup draws. And any re-arranged matches obviously wouldnt be in it.

Don't know if that is a good idea.  I mean, if it wasn't updated to accomodate cup-draws/European Cup Matches etc and re-arranged matches, then it would be giving misinformation.

If that was the case, then would rather not have it at all.

Ok, I've done one that is pretty straightforward to update, and the file size is only 22kb. I can change it to any design or font too.
<a href="http://craigsumner.topcities.com/countdown1.swf" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">http://craigsumner.topcities.com/countdown1.swf</a>
So far I've put in all the cup/league fixtures as they stand.
I'm presuming you've got Flash ERP?
If not send me an IM   ;).
The only time it needs updating is when theres a cup draw or a fixture is rearranged.
The only bit that needs changing is the code shown below, which is an array set up to hold fixtures. If a new fixture needs to be added just insert a new line like the ones shown, it doesnt matter what they're called, I only called them that for identification, in case the fixture changes. (eg, manca means man utd away).
The only condition is that the fixtures must be in chronological order.
Does that make sense?
If you dont want to update it, I could do it, then mail the new .swf file to you.

fixtures=new Array(
     default=new Date(2000,0,1,0),
     manua=new Date(2002,0,22,20,00,00),
     arsea=new Date(2002,0,27,13,00,00),
     leich=new Date(2002,0,30,20,00,00),
     leeda=new Date(2002,1,3,12,00,00),
     ipswa=new Date(2002,1,9,15,00,00),
     galah=new Date(2002,1,20,19,45,00),
     everh=new Date(2002,1,23,15,00,00),
     galaa=new Date(2002,1,26,19,45,00),
     fulha=new Date(2002,2,2,15,00,00),
     newch=new Date(2002,2,6,20),
     barca=new Date(2002,2,13,19,45),
     boroa=new Date(2002,2,16,12),
     romah=new Date(2002,2,19,19,45),
     chelh=new Date(2002,2,24,14),
     charh=new Date(2002,2,30,15),
     blach=new Date(2002,3,7,15),

hmmmm, very strange.... it's now 11.00 am on a Tuesday morning for me, and the match is suppose to be on 4.00am on a Wednesday morning (Malaysian time), but the counter says that it has 9 hours to go before the match when in actuality it's about 17 hours...something definately not right here.  Could you use GMT instead?  Maybe that would solve the problem.

Doh! :but:
How stupid of me, to not realise it might be a different time elsewhere.
It should be ok now, as long as the time on your computer is set to the correct local time. :)
