How will that impact the game? What about supporters getting to & from Anfield?

Leicester will build snowmen in their goal and still park the bus.

Might be a problem for Leicester's fans and some of our OOTs, but it won't be getting called off on account of snow here.

If you are going to read Tory papers that spout nothing but absolute bollocks do it preferably in a dark room without access to the internet.

Absolutely. Disliked them since growing up in South Wales during the miner's strike. It amazing that people from the South East don't understand why a lot of people here don't trust the Conservatives.

Is right, jumpers for goalposts, isn't it!! Is that the Anfield End?

We got 6 inches of snow Monday night in Toronto, 70kph winds blew drifts 4 foot high in places. Literally had to shovel paths in the back yard as the dogs are very old and couldn't really get back to the surface once they went under  ;D. Then it turned deep freeze, its -21 C at the moment with a brisk wind on top of that, gusts to 60k.  The "wind chill" is -35. Thats actually dangerous.

Ya softies i swear to god.  +5 your forecast today. Spring, man. i can take the dustbins out in bare feet in that. I often do because one neighbor is from Haiti and the other from Honduras and they are softer than you lot, it freaks them out badly and never fails to make me laugh. Inside of course, im not evil or anything.

I guess 3 cm of snow and panic as usual? 25-30 cm of snow on the ground here in Eastern Sweden and -7C in the air, set to drop to double-digits overnight. No big deal. That being said, only half of the town's artificial pitch has been shoveled. Too little budget to hire any more people for that third-tier club in a small town like this.

Get the players out to clear it before they start playing! That'll warm them up! :)

I can remember the call going out, and we all went down to clear the snow off the pitch and terraces after school. Must have been late sixties, I think we were playing Ferencvaros. Then we all had to queue up outside for two hours to get in.

I can remember a game against Luton in the cup ,might have been a replay.
They never turned up said the weather was too bad.
Even though some of their fans made it.
Used to hate playing them Mick Harford and that prick with the head band Steve Foster I think.
Horrible bastards and their plastic pitch.

yeah foster was the one with the headband

i think that was the game Liverpool tricked Alan Irvine into believing he was playing, when he left  the dressing room to ring home and tell his family he was playing he then came back to an empty dressing room. Think to add insult to injury someone didnt recognise him and threw him out of the ground.

edit: the last bit about him being thrown out is wrong, he was left alone with kenny in the changing room before finally being told it was off

It's snowing here right now just below Exmoor.

Quite large flakes but fortunately it's not sticking, or at least yet, the ground is probably just a tad too warm and air temperature is around 2 degrees C.

Hate the snow these days

Our kids is driving his truck from Southampton to Birmingham and back - he's chosen to sit in the jam on the A34 rather than go over birdlip due to the snow.

You know earlier I said it wasn't sticking...well it is now and shows no sign of abating, if anything it's getting heavier.
